Sexual health is an important part of your overall health and taking care of it goes a long way in helping you to feel good about yourself. A satisfying sex life not only is important to you, but also affects your spouse or partner. Sexual problems may also be an indication of more serious medical issues. If you experience sexual problems or have concerns about sexual issues, it is important to consult your doctor and have a complete and thorough examination in order to properly diagnose your illness or condition.
Because sexual health is an important part of an individual’s overall physical and emotional well-being, it is important to be open and honest with your physician about all aspects of your sexual history. The rate of sexual dysfunction can be as high as 35% among adult men. There are many conditions which may affect a healthy sex life, with erectile dysfunction being the most common issue. Other conditions affecting sexual relations may include: ejaculatory dysfunction (premature or inability), Peyronies disease, low libido (low testosterone), and priapism.
Other medical illnesses such as Diabetes, Enlarged prostate, prostate cancer, high blood pressure, depression, heart disease (vascular) and trauma may also contribute to the inability to have an enjoyable sexual experience. Certain medications may also affect your sexual function.
Over the last twenty years there have been many great advancements in the field of men’s sexual health as a result of clinical trials and research.
