Abstract

Venerophobia is a lesser recognized entity in clinical practice though the prevalence is on the rise. Our observations of current trends in the Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STI) clinic indicate that venerophobia is not an uncommon presentation among youngsters following an isolated or multiple episodes of sexual contact. This has a major bearing on the mental as well as sexual health. So far, there is no published data available in literature on the prevalence and extent of the problem. In this paper, we have made an attempt to cover the various modes of presentation, laboratory investigations and have outlined an approach towards the management of venerophobia in males.
