Ways To Deal With Common Sexual Problems in Men
Sexual dysfunctions can cause damage to the health of any individual.
Sexual intercourse requires the following stages to attain optimal satisfaction (although this is a matter of debate) which are: excitement, plateau, orgasm, and resolution.
Should one not be able to attain arousal, sexual engagement of any sort might turn sour, which and might not allow the person to achieve the sheer pleasure that should be the overall outcome.
It has been stated that 31% of the male population faces some sexual problem and it should be mentioned that all these problems are curable.
Here are the issues men might face when it comes to sexual dysfunctions:
- Low Libido:
As mentioned previously, sex has four cycles all of which play an essential role to help one another and to allow the person to be able to enjoy sex to a certain degree.
Now, lack or low libido can be the reason for not only a turn off for the man but can affect their partner as well.
The primary cause of low libido is testosterone.
Testosterone is accountable for sexual drive and also for the stability of muscle, hair, sperm production as well as bones.
Now, if the level of testosterone in a man's body is low, it can affect the man during sex as well as can affect their health.
There can be other variables involved as well when it comes to low libido, and that can be depression, mood swings, and various other medical conditions.
Medications can affect sexual desire as well.
- Erectile Dysfunction:
Erectile dysfunction is the most common issue faced and spoken out about by men when it comes to their sexual health.
People have found various ways to cure the dysfunction and the most important thing that a man should understand that it is not a crime to be suffering from ED and one should seek help to cure it.
Erectile dysfunction means the inability to maintain or get an erection of the penis while aroused or having sex.
There can be multiple reasons involved that might cause ED, like:
- Medical conditions which have caused the body to have reduced blood flow, for example, the hardening of arteries.
- Unhealthy lifestyle, which might include smoking, bad eating habits, drug use, alcoholism, or the very lack of exercise.
- Stress, mood swings, performance anxiety.
- Disorders in nerves.
- Penis injuries.
- Ejaculation Problem:
There can be three types of ejaculation issues a person can face:
Premature ejaculation means that a man ejaculates prematurely, even before or right after penetration.
There can be several causes of premature ejaculation, which includes:
- Lack of self-confidence
- Issues related to partner
- Medicines which can affect the breakdown of serotonin, a hormone which affects mood
- Delayed ejaculation, which means that it takes longer to ejaculate.
Inhibited or delayed ejaculation can be caused due to:
- Chronic health conditions or even prolonged and long term health issues can cause delayed ejaculation.
- Retrograde ejaculation:
Retrograde ejaculation means that instead of ejaculation through the very end of the penis, it is forced back inside.
Retrograde ejaculation is most common in men with diabetes.
During diabetes, the nerves in the bladder and even the bladder neck hinder the normal flow of ejaculations and make it flow in the opposite direction which is backwards.
Also if one has had operations in the bladder neck region or around the penis area can cause the ejaculation to flow back.
Under all such circumstance, it is vital that a man understands that they must seek help.
There is no way to cure sexual dysfunction without understanding the root cause.
As is evident depression or health issues play a significant role when it comes to any such problem and depression can be overlooked by any individual, thus, never truly understanding what caused the dysfunction.
Therefore, it is vital to seek medical help.
This includes therapy.
Therapy is essential at such times because a man will face difficulty with self-confidence when facing such issues and only through treatment and support they can bear the brunt of the problem.
