Singapore 'sexpert' gives advice on erectile dysfunction

"I have guys coming to me and panicking because their erection isn't as hard as before," said Martha Lee.

But before you get all excited, Dr Martha Lee is a 'sexpert' who can say that.

She is a Singapore-based clinical sexologist who helps patients with sex-related problems such as premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction (ED).

"Men treat their penis like a machine. They think an erect penis is the only way they can pleasure their partners," she said at a press conference at the Sime Darby Convention Centre on Wednesday to mark the launch of the latest male sexual enhancement drug called Zydena.

Dr Lee said ED was prevalent in the country but it was unfortunate that many men do not seek medical treatment.

To date, a cross-sectional study has found that 25% of Malaysian men aged 20 - 29 and 88% of those above the age of 60 suffer from premature ejaculation and/or ED.

If you're one of them, a single orange tablet may be all you need to get you back in action.

Pahang Pharmacy Sdn Bhd's which distributes Zydena, claims it has a success rate of 92.4%. Zydena also boasts that the overall satisfaction recorded from patients was as high as 88.5% as published in a clinical trial.

The drug supposedly has a faster onset time too, compared to other ED oral treatments. It takes only about 30 - 40 minutes for the potent selective PDE5 inhibitor (oral ED medicine) to work from the time of ingestion.

The distributor says the most important feature of the drug is that it is safe for long-term consumption.

Zydena does not produce side effect such as blue-tinged vision, backachew and muscle pains, which are common side effects of ED oral treatments.

Zydena is now available in 2 strengths of 100 mg and 200 mg tablets at clinics and pharmacies with a doctor's prescription. Each box contains 4 film-coated tablets in orange.

But be warned: while its tagline says, "Play Hard without having to Work Hard!", do not take Zydena if you are on any medicine called "nitrates" or use recreational drugs called "poppers" (amyl nitrite and butyl nitrite).
