Kwong Wah Hospital has linked up with marriage counsellors to help Viagra users adapt to their revitalised sex lives. The Yau Ma Tei hospital will send patients to the Family Planning Association for advice on how to relate to their partners whose drive may have altered after a long period without sexual activity. It also hopes to counsel men who suffer premature ejaculation after using the drug. Patients will pay $45 for each visit - every four to six months - plus $80 per 50mg tablet and $100 per 100mg tablet. The chief of service at the hospital's Department of Surgery, Dr Andrew Yip Wai-chun, said 90 per cent of Viagra patients could use the drug without medical help. In the past year, Kwong Wah Hospital treated 2,505 men aged between 25 and 77. Dr Yip said most had been treated successfully, although one man had suffered dizzy spells. While few wives accompanied their husbands to sessions - only 10 per cent of them - the challenges of a reawakened sex life posed as many problems for women; particularly older women. The executive director of the Family Planning Association, Dr Susan Fan Ying-suen, said some women - especially those who had already become grandmothers - might feel awkward about resuming a sex life with their husbands. 'This is only a misled belief of many Chinese women. Some of them may be undergoing menopause and do not want sex. 'But all they need is to untie their psychological knot,' Dr Fan said.
