Sexual health unit

Introduction

Since 1974 the World Health Organization incorporates for the first time the concept of sexual health within their Health definition, the evolution and the develpment of this area didn’t stop to grow, by the increasing of the demand of assistance in an exponentially way in the past decades.

The appearance of different medications for the approach of sexual dysfunctions has been an element more for Sexual Health to acquired the role that the population grants it and to make health proffesionals in the differente assistential levels to tackle more and in a more effective way this problems.

On the other hand, prevention is another essencial element in the sexual health care. As in the possiblity of acquisition sexually transmitted diseases or the existence of unwanted pregnancies, sexual education is an important tool.

Justification

All epidemological data avaible and the assistencial experience of the past decades allow us to affirm that sexual dysfunctions have an important prevalence, being estimated that problems as erectile dysfunction, can reach according to the age range to more than half of the male, and one of every four women can develop a hypoactive sexual desire in the course of their sexual life.

Through active detection we can find a high number of disorders of the sexlogy area in patients that suffer other illness (diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, medullary lesions, prostatic pathologies, oncologicals…) or polymedicated (antihypertensive medication, psychotropic drugs).

Our professional experience provides us also the evidence of the need to have an assistencial sexology unit related to other specialities due to the close relation between several organic problems and sexual dysfunctions. Magna Clinic count on diverse departments for specialties that can interrelate with
the Sexual Health Unit.
