The common sexual problems in men are premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, and low sex drive. These problems are not openly addressed because of social stigma. Read the article to know more about these male sexual problems.
It is very embarrassing for men to discuss their sexual problems with anyone, even a doctor. But, I would like to tell these men that sexual problems are very commonly seen in men. I have researched extensively on sexual problems in males and females. After spending a year in research, I concluded that several factors cause sexual problems in men. The aim of writing this article is to share my experience and guide people whose lives have been affected by one or more of these issues.
The Common Complaints:
Masturbation is a healthy habit, but excess masturbation is harmful. I would never ask my patients to stop masturbation completely because it is a natural process of your body. There is no hard and fast rule about the number of times a person can masturbate. It varies in each individual. But, when it starts affecting your social life and everyday routine, it is bad for you and can affect your mental, physical and sexual health.
When a person masturbates too much, a hormone is released in his body in excess, making him dull and drowsy. Also, it can make his penile muscles soft and less erect and such people complain about having a small penis. Since the penile muscles are not tight enough, they will not hold the erection for long. Hence the problem of quick ejaculation arises.
Many pills are available in the market that claim to cure sexual problems. But, most men do not find these pills very effective. These medicines manage to provide only temporary benefits. Surprisingly, medicines are not the only solution to their problems. Counseling alone will help a majority of them, while in certain situations, counseling in combination with medicines seems to help. So, I cannot stress more on the importance of counseling and alternative therapies in treating men's sexual problems.
