What are the common sexual problems in men, and what are their causes?


Physical Education Trainer | Posted on

Sexual dysfunctions in men are not only limited to impotence, and the causes of different problems are different. Sexual dysfunction in men includes the disruption of the four phases of the sexual response cycle of a couple which includes: excitement, plateau, *****, and resolution.

The main sexual problems that a man might be facing are four:

1. Ejaculation disorders

Caused due to the performance anxiety, these disorders are of three types:

a. Premature Ejaculation: In which the ejaculation occurs before or very soon after penetration.
b. Delayed Ejaculation: In which the ejaculation does not occur, or takes a very long time to occur
c. Retrograde Ejaculation: In which the ***** is forced back into the bladder at the time of *****.

Causes: Apart from the performance anxiety, there are other psychological causes of this problem, including stress, previous sexual repression, depression, and lack of communication.

Some other causes are the side effects of the medicine of heart disease and high blood pressure.

2. Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

It is found mostly in men after 40 years of age and refers to the inability to get or keep an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse.

Causes: ED can be caused due to the over-consumption of alcohol, diabetes, spinal cord injuries, nerve disorders, penis injury, overeating, lack of exercise, hardening of arteries, etc.

3. Dry *****

It refers to the situation when you are unable to ***** even when you have reached the *****.

Causes: Its causes are nerve damage due to diabetes, surgery related to prostrate and bladder problems.

4. Loss of Libido

It means the decreased sexual desire or the loss of sex drive, and just like other sexual problems, this is also caused by various physical and mental reasons.

Causes: Depression, stress, type 2 diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, sleep problems, chemotherapy, radiation, etc.

Although I am not a doctor, the general awareness about these common problems and their causes may help you to avoid them in all possibilities.

For cure and treatment, however, I would suggest you take professional medical advice.
