Men’s Health Clinic

A Caring, Efficient Men’s Health Clinic

Some treatments offered by the Carters Chemist Men’s Health clinic in Islington are available on the NHS and others may only be available as private procedures. But our staff will discuss treatment options with you so you can make an informed choice.

Erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED), which is also known as impotence, is the inability to get or maintain an erection. It is a common condition in men in the UK and most men suffer from this condition at some point in their lifetime. It’s very common in men over 40.
If you believe that you suffer from erectile dysfunction then we can help you with a range of treatment options. There are prescription-only medicines and also over the counter medicines. You will have a consultation with one of our pharmacists in a private consultation room. We will assess your medical history and establish which treatment is suitable for you. Where we can’t supply any medication, we will signpost you to another service.

Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation (PE) is where a man ejaculates too quickly during sex.
The duration of sex can vary, with couples deciding how long is right for them. So, there isn’t a correct amount of time that a man takes to climax. If you and your partner feel satisfied with the sex you share, then you have nothing to worry about. But medically, PE is defined as climaxing within two minutes of penetrative sex.
If you feel you climax too soon in around half or more sexual attempts, or if you feel you ejaculate without a sense of control, then you could consider seeking treatment.

Stop Smoking

Our pharmacists are accredited Stop Smoking advisors and can give you counselling about stopping smoking. Plus we can issue you with the appropriate nicotine replacement products from the pharmacy.
The anti-smoking products we can provide include nicotine replacement patches, chewing gum, nasal sprays and inhalators to help relieve the craving and withdrawal symptoms associated with stopping smoking. We can tailor a service for you over a twelve-week period to support your needs. We have had many successful patients who have stuck with this plan.

Hair Loss

Male pattern baldness is a common, genetic condition that leads to permanent hair loss. Male pattern baldness affects 50% of men over 50 years of age but can also affect men in their 20s.
The hair loss in male pattern baldness starts as a thinning of the hair at the sides and on the top of the head. It’s this “pattern” that defines the condition and separates it from other types of hair loss.
Whilst this form of hair loss in men isn’t serious and doesn’t need treatment, it is permanent and can be distressing. The loss of hair can affect your confidence and self-esteem. However, there are several treatment options available to stop your hair loss and even regrow new hair.
