Sexual Health

Sexual health deals with issues such as unplanned pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases, and safer sex practices.

Sexually transmitted infections

Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) are contracted during unprotected sex and their symptoms vary widely. You can reduce the risk by practising safe sex, through the use of condoms.

However, as condoms do not offer 100% protection, a better option is for a couple to be in a monogamous and faithful relationship. 

Common STIs

  • HIV, the virus that causes AIDS
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhoea
  • Herpes
  • Syphilis
  • Genital warts

If you suspect that you have an infection, you should visit your doctor as soon as possible. It is important to treat STIs early to reduce complications and stop the spread of infection to others.

To look after your reproductive health, visit your doctor regularly. Practise family planning so you'll never have to deal with an unwanted pregnancy or about passing an infection to your child.

Read this post for more information on STD screening in Singapore.

Stuffy Nose While Having Sex? A Singapore Doctor Tells You Why

Stuffy Nose While Having Sex? A Singapore Doctor Tells You Why

As pleasurable as the activity is, sex can be a complex and rather sensitive issue for many couples. An array of factors can come together and lead up to either a good time in bed or awkward situations that you would both rather forget about.

Aside from the more common culprits (such as erectile dysfunction or stress), there is another less severe but rather annoying condition that you may or may not have even heard of: a stuffy blocked nose, occurring during or after sex.

A reader on DoctorxDentist asked about why the nose can become stuffy and blocked after sex. Psychiatrist, Dr Ng Beng Yeong, responded. Here’s what he had to say.
