Treatment for Male Sexual Dysfunction
Male sexual dysfunction is a problem that interrupts any phase of the sexual response cycle (excitement, plateau, orgasm, resolution) that prevents the individual from experiencing satisfaction. Sexual dysfunction is very common in men in the form of ejaculation disorders, erectile dysfunction and inhibited sexual desire.
Ejaculation disorders such as premature ejaculation, inhibited ejaculation, and retrograde ejaculation can stem from psychological factors such as stress and anxiety, or medical conditions such as hormone imbalances, arthritis, coronary heart disease, and hypertension or nerve damage due to diabetes.
Inhibited sexual desire, or reduced libido, is the loss of interest in sexual activity. It can be caused from psychological factors or physical factors such as low levels of testosterone. This can be treated with medication.
Treating Impotence / ED
Impotence or Erectile Dysfunction is the inability to attain or maintain an erection long enough for sexual intercourse and ejaculation. Again, this may be due to either physical or psychological factors. As men age, they are most likely to experience impotence.
Sexual dysfunction can also be caused by certain medications or medical conditions.
Male sexual dysfunction may only require lifestyle changes as treatment. Men who quit smoking, drinking, and adopt a healthy diet are less likely to experience sexual dysfunction. If lifestyle changes are ineffective, medication and other treatment options are available.
