Erectile Dysfunction: Causes & Treatment

May 3rd, 2022|

Erectile dysfunction, typically shortened to ED and also known as impotence, is something many men struggle to talk about. It’s also something many men struggle with, as this problem affects 1 in 5 over the age of 40.

While knowing you’re not alone can be of some comfort, ED still has a huge effect on self-esteem, mental health and relationships. The good news is that there are treatments available, and GPs like Dr Ed Skinner at Yarra Medical specialise in this area and can advise you on the most appropriate course of action.

Fortunately, there is a range of treatments available, and the GPs at Yarra Medical, like Dr Ed Skinner, specialise in this area and can give advise based on your particular circumstances.

Influenza: The Facts & The Fiction

April 21st, 2020|

Influenza, more commonly known as the flu, has for most of our lives been seen as a temporary inconvenience that comes around every winter. Like an unpopular relative visiting for a brief period, we put up with it, knowing it will eventually leave and things will go back to normal.

Pandemics, though, have a way of altering our perceptions, at least for a certain amount of time. While COVID-19 isn’t the same as seasonal influenza, it’s safe to assume it will have an impact on how we view all highly communicable diseases.

So, what exactly is influenza?

Influenza is a highly contagious virus, […]

Intrauterine Device (IUD): Six things you may not know

January 22nd, 2020|

IUDs, or intrauterine devices, are one of the most reliable methods of contraception available. In fact, they are the most effective reversible contraception on the market. Plus, you don’t have to worry about remembering to take the pill or using a condom.

IUDs aren’t, however, a popular form of contraception. Some doctors are hesitant to discuss them with their patients, especially young women, because they think they will be uninterested or unwilling to give them a go. But they are a convenient, effective form of birth control you should consider.

Here are six things you may not know about IUDs:
