Podcast (Transcript Below)

Transcript


Georgie Kovacs interviewed Dr. Paul Gittens, one of the country’s leading specialists in sexual function for men and women, hormone replacement, male infertility and wellness. He is a board certified urologist, fellowship trained specifically in sexual medicine and male infertility. He is also a clinical associate professor in obstetrics and gynecology and founded the Centers for Sexual Medicine in Philadelphia and New York City.


Georgie: I appreciated hearing how empathetic your approach was at the recent Endo summit. At the ASRM conference last year, I heard data shared about men’s health. The information relayed was that men only go to a doctor if their mother, wife or sister recommend them to go. They have issues that they don’t want to deal with or don’t know how to deal with them.


While I often talk about a lack of awareness around women’s health, there’s a different aspect to look at for men’s health. There’s such a societal pressure for what men could or should be. I believe that impacts what men might seek help for. Given these dynamics, I thought it would be important to hear your wisdom.
