The online service provides consultations and medication delivery for common issues men may feel uncomfortable discussing in the clinic: hair loss, premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, and smoking cessation.
Millions of men around the world are affected by erectile dysfunction. By the age of 35, 66% of men will have started noticing hair loss. And, it is estimated that 1 in 3 men suffer with premature ejaculation.

Providing doctor consultations and prescriptions through an online clinic offers men a comfortable alternative. Numan is a telemedicine platform specifically for males in the UK to seek treatment and advice for hair loss, premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, and smoking. Similar services include Hims and Roman in the United States.
Online or phone consultations are usually available same-day for patients to discuss their concerns with the doctor. After the chat, the doctor can prescribe a treatment which is paid for directly through the platform. All the medicines are approved for the relevant condition. The prescriptions are delivered for free in plain packaging to the patient’s door.
Automatic refills are available, and doctors are accessible for regular check-ins to make sure the treatment is working as expected and doesn’t require adjustment. For more insight into the patient’s overall health, an at-home blood test kit is available that tests for diabetes, hormone levels, and cholesterol – All of which may contribute to erectile dysfunction at certain levels.
