Sexual dysfunction in men can arise from a variety of distinct causes from diet to stress, emotional weights and even histories of certain types of drug use. If you are a male concerned about the potential for being affected by sexual dysfunction at some point in your life, it would pay to become aware of some of the most common types of dysfunction out there.
1. Inability to maintain an erection: This is perhaps the second most common form of erectile dysfunction to premature ejaculation and is doubly-prevalent among men in their 70s versus men in their 50s.
2. Lack of sexual desire: A drop in libido, or desire to make love, can be a result of a number of different causes such as alcohol abuse, depression or perhaps a result of medications you are taking.
3. Premature ejaculation: Over-stimulation of the penis to the point of a premature orgasm is a problem many men face. This can be a result of emotional perspectives on intimacy or direct physical causes. Depending on the origin, various remedies are available. Men who suffer from this condition are not alone as 20-30% of sexual dysfunction cases involve premature ejaculation.
4. Delayed Ejaculation: This is the symptom when a man requires an inordinately excessive amount of prolonged stimulation in order to achieve an orgasm.
5. Inability to Ejaculate: Men with this type of dysfunction have a literal inability to reach an orgasm. Typically, this is caused more by an emotional block rather than a physical problem with the man’s anatomy.
6. Disordered Orgasm: This is often just used as another way to refer to an inability to produce an orgasm as a male, but is typically the term used for men who sporadically can achieve orgasm. This is a condition that is occasionally reached by those suffering from diabetes.
7. Low Testosterone: Perhaps you are performing fine in all of the areas mentioned already but you don’t feel as dominant or powerful in lovemaking as you once did as a male. That is the condition known as Low-T, or Low Testosterone.
Contact your healthcare professional if any of these types of male sexual dysfunction sound like problems that experience on a regular basis. There are treatments and cures to most of these issues and usually, it’s simply just a matter of investigation. A diagnosis is usually formed by getting to know the man’s sexual history and various other physical and lifestyle data points. Once diagnosed, your doctor will be able to prescribe a course of action.
