HEDS researchers make the national news

HEDS researchers made the national news with a systematic review of complementary and alternative medicine for management of premature ejaculation. News sources including the Express, Daily Mail and Sheffield Star ran articles on the study, which found preliminary evidence for the effectiveness of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Ayurvedic herbal medicine, and Korean herbal cream in improving time to ejaculation and other outcomes. However, further research in complementary therapies for premature ejaculation may be useful, as the condition is currently managed via a wide range of approaches including drug treatments, topical creams, physical techniques, and psychosexual counselling.
