Sex and sexuality
Sexuality can be expressed in many ways. Feeling good about yourself and respecting your sexual partner are the key. Communicate openly about issues such as sexual desire, contraception and safe sex. Common problems for men include impotence, premature ejaculation or libido issues.
Common health conditions that affect men include stress, depression, hair loss, snoring, heart disease, diabetes, cancer and prostate or testicular problems. Regular check-ups and screening tests can help you stay healthy and pick up early warning signs.
