Love pills boom online. However, often they are fake.

They are available on unofficial web channels. They mostly attract men. They are almost always counterfeit. They are the so-called "love pills", or alleged medicinal products used to treat sexual ailments, especially erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. Their sale is hugely successful on the web. According to data presented at the "Counterfeiting, a virus to be eradicated," conference, organised in Rome, they often fail to live up to expectations, either because they do not contain active ingredients, or they contain double the correct dosage and could cause serious health risks. These facts came from data presented at the "Counterfeiting, a virus to be eradicated," conference, organised in Rome. The conference was organised by Federfarma Servizi – the National Association of Intermediate Distribution Companies which is owned by pharmacy owners. The study was in collaboration with the Italian Urology Association. Some data: in 2016, authorities shut down 20,000 illegal pharmacies. A survey conducted by the Italian Agency for Medicines and Sapienza University of Rome carried out on a thousand internet users, revealed that 41% of participants considered the online drug purchase phenomenon as "positive" and 43% of them thought the web was a safe source for the medicine purchase. These results highlight a potentially dangerous trend, which might be down to the absence of strong and widespread regulations aimed at curbing illegal selling behaviours. Studies that have analysed the content of online drugs available have shown that in a third of cases, they did not contain any active ingredient and in one out of five cases they contain incorrect quantities. 21.4% were made up of wrong ingredients, 15.6% had fake packaging, 8.5% contained high amounts of contaminants and other impurities. These are good reasons to think twice before clicking. It is much better to receive a prescription from your GP and fulfil it through official reliable pharmacies.

WHAT IS IT? AND HOW TO RECOGNIZE IT?

Premature ejaculation (PE) is quite a common male sexual dysfunction, including between 30-70% of men of all ages. Nowadays it is described as a general difficulty or inability to exercise voluntary control over ejaculation or to delay it; this lack of control generates increasing levels of frustration, stress and even fear in males negatively affecting their sexual life and, by extension, generally damages couple relations and partnerships.

WHAT TO DO?

If premature ejaculation is suspected, the first rule is to remember that the problem can be tackled successfully, especially if treated early. Therefore, no one should feel embarrassed or ashamed for seeking medical advice as soon as possible. Trying to live with the problem is only likely to exacerbate anxiety and psychological disturbances, resulting in worsening of the disorder. Urologists/andrologists and sexologists are the referral specialists in this case.
