sex problems in men

 

The most common men sexual problems are erectile dysfunction, ejaculation disorders (such as premature ejaculation, inhibited ejaculation and retrograde ejaculation) and loss of libido.

 

Sex problems in men are detailed as following.

 

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction or impotence is one of the most prevalent men sex health problems. It can be explained as inability to have an erection or sustain it long enough for an intercourse. There are physical and psychological reasons behind the condition. Diseases such as atherosclerosis which hinder normal blood flow, chronic illnesses, certain medications, nervous disorders and a condition called Peyronie’s disease, which leaves a scar tissue in the men’s genitals are some physical causes of erectile dysfunction. Psychological factors such as stress, depression and performance anxiety or nervousness about one’s ability to perform the sexual act well are sometimes to be blamed for erectile dysfunction.

 

Inhibited Sexual Desire

Inhibited sexual desire is a disorder characterised by decrease in interest for sexual activity. Also referred to as loss of libido, inhibited sexual desire is a result of either psychological or physical factor. Psychological factors such as anxiety or depression and physical factors such as diabetes, medical illnesses, high blood pressure and side-effect of medications can lead to this men sex health problem.

Ejaculation Disorders

There are three types of ejaculation disorders mainly – Premature Ejaculation, Inhibited Ejaculation and Retrograde Ejaculation.  When ejaculation occurs too early, i.e. before or soon after penetration, it is known as premature ejaculation. Inhibited ejaculation is a problem in which ejaculation occurs too slowly. Retrograde ejaculation is when at the time of ejaculation, the semen goes back into the bladder rather than through the urethra and out.

Out of the three, premature ejaculation is most common sex problem in men. The main reason behind it is performance anxiety for the sexual act. The other two ejaculation disorders are caused by post traumatic stress, lacking attraction for the sexual partner and psychological factors like religious taboo for sex. Retrograde ejaculation is also a complication that is common in diabetic men (those who suffer from diabetic neuropathy). Men undergone prostrate or bladder operation may experience the disorder.

 

Treatment for Men Sexual Health Problems

Addressing physical or psychological cause of sexual problems in men is the most common way the treated them. Treatment for men sex health problems may involve the following:

 

Specific Medical Treatment: Treatment of the underlying medical condition which is the cause of the sexual problem.
Supplementing Hormones: Men who have low testosterone levels can benefit from testosterone replacement therapy that supplements their hormones.
Psychological Therapy: A trained counsellor helps a person resolve feelings of fear, anxiety or guilt that is a hindrance in sex.

Education and Communication: Educating a man about sex and sexual behaviours can help him overcome his fears and insecurities. Start talking to your partner about what you feel about the sexual act and get rid of the mental barriers.
Mechanical Aids: Penile implants and vacuum devices are useful for men with erectile dysfunction.

 

Coping with Men Sex Problems

Sexual problems are often an indication of underlying medical condition. You should never ignore your problem but work with a doctor to get to the root cause. Besides, it is very important for your partner to know if you aren’t feeling right about something or things that are bothering you. One of the best ways of coping with sex problems is through communication; talk it out.

The common sexual health problems in men are a cause of great distress and cause relationship troubles if they persist. If any of the problems persist for too long, it is advisable to consult your doctor for diagnosis and treatment.

Despite the problems of sexual dysfunction being treatable in most cases, many people hesitate to talk about it openly. Both men and women can be affected by sexual problems, and they are normal. Being better informed about these sexual health problems along with possible treatment options will surely help the men to deal with them better.

    The first remedy to all sexual problems is that remove from your mind that you r sexually weak(dont do such foolish things). even gandhiji married at a very early age. even he had many such bad habits. atlast he started celibacy(brahmacharya) at the age of 37! and atlast became a revolutionist. its all the charisma of saving semen(celibacy). believe me ....you vl be saved at once...start celibacy from today. u vl come to know your immense potential..

    Socrates? advice should be a great message for one and all. Whoever wastes his semen for sexual pleasure attains only despair, weakness, and finally death. This priceless human life is wasted on sexual indulgence, but sexual desires are never satiated.
  • rajiv07 Mar 2012
    Householder: ?But if that too doesn?t satisfy him?? Socrates: ?Then let it be once a month.? Householder: ?And if he is still not satisfied?? Socrates: ?Then let it be twice a month, but this will cause an early death.? Householder: ?What should he do if he is not satisfied with that either?? Socrates: ?Well then, do it this way. Dig a grave, purchase a coffin and a shroud for yourself beforehand, then you may spoil yourself as many times as you wish. This is my final advice to you.?
  • rajiv07 Mar 2012
    Frequency of Copulation If someone wishes to lose his vigour through sexual indulgence and degrade himself, then he must at least bear in mind the advice given by the great Greek philosopher Socrates in the following conversation. Householder: ?Kindly instruct me as to how many times a man may have copulation with his wife.? Socrates: ?Only once in his life.? Householder: ?But if that fails to satisfy him?? Socrates: ?Then he can have copulation once a year.?

    The Secret of a Magnetic Personality Conservation of semen results in the emergence of a charismatic power in the body. whatever happened is happened. forget that. try to conserve(save) semen from nowonwards. Whenever you see someone who has made extraordinary achievements in life, who reflects a magnetic aura, possesses a charismatic personality, whose speech is impressive and who is enthusiastic, then know for sure that this is due to the power of conserving semen. that is 100% true.
