TOPIC – Sexual Satisfaction goes Down the Toilet for Canadian Men 50+.
INFO – Last month, men clinically diagnosed with erectile dysfunction (ED) from across Canada who are 50 years of age and older were asked questions about their sexual health, urinary symptoms and level of intimacy. In this targeted survey of experienced men, results showed almost half (45%) visit the washroom six to 10 times per day due to urinary symptoms and 58 per cent wake to urinate two or more times per night.
Almost one-in-four (24%) respondents said their urinary issues have affected their sexual activity and sexual satisfaction; one-in-10 either avoid intimacy (11%) or sleep in a different bedroom to avoid interrupting their partner (9%); one-fifth (19%) feel guilty about interrupting their partner’s sleep when they get up at night to urinate.
On a positive note, as many as three-in-five (61%) men have discussed their burdensome urinary symptoms with a healthcare professional. Those who did not said they don’t consider their symptoms bothersome enough and one-third (36%) consider their symptoms just a normal part of aging.
Dr. Gerald Brock, Professor of Surgery, Division of Urology from the University of Western Ontario and member of the Canadian Urological Association will comment on the survey results and common urological health matters he sees in his clinic.
