Weaknesses in Male Sexual Health
Almost every second man suffers from some disorder which prevents him from leading a normal sex life. Yet, by far not all of those men turn to specialists for help. The reason is purely psychological, since many men are afraid to admit that they have a problem in “the area”, and fear that friends, acquaintances, and of course women will find it out somehow. However, by consulting the doctor in time one can not only stay healthy but also fix sexual relationships, without which he will not fell completely like a man. So, what are they, the most common male “problems”?
Contrary to the common belief, this disorder rarely has purely physiological nature. Only pathology or injury can cause a man to lose his ability to have erection at sexually active age.
If the cause is not one of the mentioned above, then it has to be the brain, since our brain is the place where all the processes which lead to sexual erection and orgasm get initiated.
Prostatitis means inflammation of the prostate gland. When the gland enlarges the man has trouble urinating. Prostatitis can trigger some pain and thus interfere with the man’s sexual life.
Men who have higher chances of developing prostatitis usually have sedimentary lifestyle or abuse alcohol. This type of lifestyle leads to blood stagnation in the small pelvis, which furthermore leads to inflammations. Lack of intimate relationship is also considered as a factor leading to prostatitis.
Adenoma and prostate cancer
Prostate tumor usually is triggered by prostatitis, although exceptions occur as well. Since the tumor constricts normal urine flow, the first symptom usually is the frequent urge for urination, especially at night. While those men need to urinate frequently, the urine usually comes out in small doses. In cases when disease is not treated in time the patient may develop urine stagnation and incontinence. Treatment of those stages usually requires medical intervention, or even surgery. Side effects of adenoma include hemorrhoids, inguinal hernia, and even kidney failure. We assume that risks of prostate cancer need no explanation.
But how to prevent “male” diseases? Below are some common advices given by doctors.
Exercises which prevent blood stagnation in the small pelvis, such as swimming and biking are beneficial even if you do not have prostate adenoma. Try to walk often even if you own a car. The better physical shape you are in, the lower are your risks of having potency or prostate problems.
No need to be afraid of the doctor
If you notice some suspicious symptoms, such as frequent urgency to urinate at night, then you should immediately see an oncologist! Furthermore, it is advised have regular ultrasound of the prostate once you turn the age of 40. If you exhibit prostate or adenoma symptoms then you need to run a couple of special tests to determine whether there are some malignant cells.
Have sex more frequently
Sex is the best “prevention method” against the “male” problems!
