“Just as women have regular check ups with their OB-Gyne, men also have a doctor for their special part”
Every organ and body part of our body has a corresponding specialist, medical practitioner or doctor that looks into different cases, and when it comes to the male sex organ, there are different doctors to see depending on why and what you need them for.
To give you a breakdown on what kind of doctor you should look for and what help they can offer, you may refer to the list below:
Primary Care Physicians
Before you self medicate or consult yourself or another doctor, it is best to visit your physician or if you don’t have any family doctor whatsoever you may set an appointment with a general physician so that you can fully check the other parts of your body and basically rule out other complications that may cause your troubles.
When we say andrology, it is the medical study of the male reproductive system and urological problems that are present . Andrologists are the counterpart of Gynaecologists or OB-Gyne for women. Generally you may consult them if you would need a check up for your sex organ or if you need to have something diagnosed. Just like with women, you should have a andrologist that you are comfortable with. You should also have regular check ups prescribed by the doctor.
If it’s about your hormones, then you need to visit an endocrinologist. The male hormone is called Testosterone. The testosterone is essential for reproduction and sexual function. For more pressing matters about reproduction there is also a Reproductive Endocrinologist, which encompasses sexual disorders and infertility problems.
This kind of doctors specialize in urinary diseases and problems as well as urinary tract infections. They also diagnose and treat prostate cancer, male infertility and erectile dysfunction.
This is more on the physical look of your organ. Plastic surgeons can transplant or change the structure of the organ itself for cosmetic, reconstructive or medical purposes. Not all plastic surgery is for aesthetic purposes only, there are cases that the male sex organ needs to be changed or adjusted for proper functionality.
Sexual medicine doctors
For a more unconventional approach, you may consult these doctors since they thoroughly study the causes of your problems and if it is physical or mental. These professionals describe their job as detective work.
They are only applicable if physical problems are ruled out and it might mean that it is more on the psychological side which requires the attention of a psychologist or a therapist whether a counsellor or sex therapist.
Whether or not you feel that there’s something wrong with your sex organ, it is still best to live by the saying that “prevention is better than cure”. Just as women have regular check ups with their OB-Gyne, it won’t be embarrasing to also have a doctor for your special part. So, look someone up and make sure that you are comfortable with your doctor since the best way to know what’s really going on down there is to be open and communicate in detail everything about it. Take care and Stay Healthy!
