INTRODUCTION: Studies on male sexual dysfunctions around the world point to high prevalence rates. Although there are studies on the prevalence of sexual dysfunctions in men in Turkey, these studies report different results due to regional and methodological differences. Therefore, more robust and consolidated data are needed on the prevalence of sexual dysfunctions in men.
METHODS: For this meta-analysis study, "Google Scholar" and "ULAKBIM" databases were searched. Studies have been conducted in Turkey between January 2000 and April 2019 were included in the study.
RESULTS: The prevalence of male sexual dysfunction, erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation were found to be 28%, 18% and 24%, respectively
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: This study is the first meta-analysis on the prevalence of male sexual dysfunction in Turkey. Our results reveal the importance of preventive and therapeutic health services in male sexual dysfunctions.

Keywords: Erectile dysfunction, men, meta-analysis, premature ejaculation, sexual dysfunction.
