Attention men: It’s time to talk about your sexual health.
Yes, we realize this can be an uncomfortable topic, especially if everything isn’t working as it should. You deserve to be healthy, though, and a new men’s health clinic in Kelowna can help you get where you want to be.
There is no reason for you to suffer in silence.
Precision Sexual Health Clinic For Men opened its doors last November and moved to its permanent space at The Shore, across from Gyro Beach, in February. This is the second Precision clinic in BC and Dr. Marvin Bailey is the lead physician. He is ready to help all men achieve sexual health so that their relationships thrive.
“We’re really trying to break down the stigma and the barriers to getting treatment for these things, because most guys who have these issues don’t even want to tell anyone,” says Dr. Bailey.
“It’s a safe space where you can come. We have trained and experienced professionals who are well versed in this type of medicine and the treatment of these disorders. And we understand the complexity of it. We understand how sensitive it is.
The top three conditions that Dr. Bailey and his team treat at Precision Sexual Health Clinic For Men are erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and Peyronie’s disease. The first two are well-known afflictions, but Peyronie’s disease is a condition that Dr. Bailey says is significantly underdiagnosed.
The disease, which affects one in 10 men, causes scar tissue to form under the skin of the penis, which eventually turns into plaque. This restricts blood flow and causes a range of symptoms, including pain during sexual activity and curvature of the penis.
“This disease is a disease that can be extremely devastating,” says Dr Bailey. “It massively affects the quality of life. It has the ability to totally destroy a relationship. Generally, most people don’t know about it.
Erectile dysfunction, on the other hand, is very common. A recent study showed that almost 50% of Canadian men over the age of 40 have some symptoms of this disease. Precision Sexual Health Clinic For Men offers four treatments for erectile dysfunction, which is a potentially treatable medical condition and is not related to masculinity or sexual prowess.
The treatments are:
• Shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction — ED Shockwave Therapy is an innovative medical treatment that uses low-intensity acoustic sound waves to attempt to treat the vascular cause of erectile dysfunction, not just its symptoms, by encouraging the growth of new blood vessels.
• Plasma-rich platelet injections PRP therapy is a penile injection intended to improve sexual performance in men through a proposed mechanism that some people believe will promote the regeneration of nerves and blood vessels, potentially increasing the amount of blood flow to the penis.

• Trimix penile injections — The Trimix program offers an easy-to-use immediate solution to erectile dysfunction. Benefits include minimal systemic side effects and the ability to achieve reliable hour-long erections in minutes. Unlike pills, Trimix works locally directly on the penis to increase blood flow and create an erection.
• Sex therapy — It can help an individual or couple overcome a variety of sexual difficulties and challenges that can interfere with erectile signals to your penis. Sex therapy is often helpful in treating erectile dysfunction, even when physical factors are the primary cause.
Dr Bailey thinks taking the first step will make the journey easier for men who are too shy or shy to reach out. You don’t need a referral from a family doctor to book an appointment with Precision, so you can start the journey to sexual health by visiting the clinic website here.
Precision Sexual Health Clinic For Men not only treats the physical side of ailments through shockwave and platelet rich plasma therapies, but also the mental side. The clinic has hired a sex therapist who can help with issues like erectile dysfunction.
“She is truly phenomenal. Finding a really good sex therapist is nearly impossible,” says Dr. Bailey. “What makes us unique is that we look at the individual as a whole, we do a comprehensive assessment and we treat the individual as a whole. This is where sex therapy comes in, because having the opportunity to see a sex therapist and work on the psychological component that has caused many of these issues is so, so important and valuable.
The Precision Sexual Health Clinic For Men website has a lot of detailed, science-based information on men’s sexual health issues, and Dr. Bailey recommends that those who suffer from it start their journey by learning as much as possible.
