  1. A five-year follow-up study of more than 2,000 US men who received prostate cancer treatment is creating a road map for future patients regarding long-term bowel, bladder and sexual function in order to clarify expectations and enable men to make informed choices about care.
  2. The number of women regularly having sex declines with age, and the number of women enjoying sex postmenopause is even lower. Although these facts are not surprising, the causes for these declines may be because previous research focused largely on biological causes only. However, a new study identifies psychosocial contributors.
  3. A drug used to treat erectile dysfunction has been found to slow or even reverse the progression of heart failure in sheep. The study is a breakthrough in the treatment for the disease in which five year survival rates are lower than most common cancers.
  4. Surgeons have modified a minimally invasive technique to help men regain erectile function lost after prostate cancer surgery.
  5. Evidence that type 2 diabetes is a cause of erectile dysfunction has been found in a large-scale genomic analysis.
  6. Men who have undergone bariatric surgery as a long-term way of losing weight might also benefit from increased testosterone levels post-surgery. However, there is no evidence that the sperm quality of a patient improves.
  7. For the first time, a team of researchers has found a specific place in the human genome that raises a person's risk of erectile dysfunction. The discovery is a significant advancement in the understanding of the genetics underlying erectile dysfunction.
  8. Researchers found nearly 40 per cent of women and almost 30 per cent of men between the ages of 40 and 59 face challenges in their sex lives. Based on a first-ever national survey of 2,400 people, the study found low desire, vaginal dryness and difficulty achieving orgasm to be common challenges facing women. Low desire and erectile and ejaculation problems are the common challenges facing men.
