Abstract

OBJECTIVE Little is known about men's expectations of their family physicians regarding sexual disorders. Our goal was to evaluate the frequency of sexual problems among male patients in family practice and to assess their need for help. STUDY DESIGN We performed a cross-sectional survey based on structured questionnaires answered by patients and physicians in German family practices. POPULATION We approached 43 family physicians; 20 (43%) participated. On asingle day all men 18 years and older visiting the participating practiceswere approached, and 307 (84,%) took part in the survey. OUTCOME MEASURE Patients were asked about their frequency and type of sexual problems, their need for help, and their expectations of their physicians, The physicians described their perceptions and management of sexual problems in family practice. RESULTS Nearly all patients (93%) reported at least 1 sexual problem from which they suffered seldom or more often. The most common problems were lowsexual desire (73%) and premature ejaculation (66%). Occupational stress was considered causative by more than half of the men (107/201). Forty-eightpercent considered it important to talk with their physicians about sexualconcerns. However, most physicians initiated a discussion about sexual concerns only seldom or occasionally. There was a nonsignificant correlation between the physicians' assumed knowledge and the patients' wish to contact them in case of sexual problems (rho=0,26). CONCLUSIONS The high frequency of self-reported sexual disorders and the hesitancy of family physicians to deal with this topic signals a neglected area in primary health care. Certain conditions, such as Occupational stress, which may be associated with sexual concerns, should encourage the physician to initiate discussions about sexuality.
