Many U.S. veterans may face sexual health problems

By Lisa Rapaport (Reuters Health) – Many U.S. veterans returning from service in Iraq and Afghanistan may encounter sexual health problems, a new study suggests. Almost 18 percent of veterans screened positive for sexual dysfunction in initial visits at the post-deployment clinic at a veterans affairs medical center in Houston, researchers say. It’s possible the actual prevalence of sexual dysfunction is much higher, because veterans, like many other people, may be reluctant to discuss sex with providers they are seeing for the first time, noted study co-author Dr. Drew Helmer, director of the War Related Illness and Injury Study Center at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) New Jersey Health Care System in East Orange.
