SEXUAL PROBLEMS IN MEN

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)

SEXUAL PROBLEMS IN MEN

Erection problems

An erection problem occurs when a man can't get or keep an erection that is firm enough for intercourse. You may not be able to get an erection at all. Or, you may lose the erection during intercourse before you are ready. Erection problems usually don't affect your sex drive.

Erection problems are common. Almost all adult men have trouble getting or keeping an erection at one time or another. Often the problem goes away with little or no treatment. But for some men, it can be an ongoing problem. This is called erectile dysfunction (ed).

If you have trouble getting or keeping an erection more than 25% of the time, you should consult the doctor.

Causes

To get an erection, your brain, nerves, hormones, and blood vessels all need to work together. If something gets in the way of these normal functions, it can lead to erection problems.

An erection problem is usually not 'all in your head' in fact, most erection problems have a physical cause, such as:


    Disease:    

  •  Diabetes
  •  High blood pressure
  •  Heart or thyroid conditions
  •  Clogged arteries (atherosclerosis)
  •  Depression
  •  Nervous system disorders, such as multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's disease

    
    
    Medicines
    

  •  Antidepressants
  •  Blood pressure medications (especially beta-blockers)
  •  Heart medications (such as digoxin)
  •  Sleeping pills
  •  Some peptic ulcer medication

    
    Other physical causes
    

  •  Low testosterone levels. This can make it difficult to get an erection. It can also reduce a man's sex drive.
  •  Nerve damage from prostate surgery.
  •  Nicotine, alcohol, or cocaine use.
  •  Spinal cord injury.

    

In some cases, your emotions or relationship problems can lead to ed, such as:

 

  •     Poor communication with your partner.
  •     Feelings of doubt and failure.
  •     Stress, fear, anxiety, or anger.
  •     Expecting too much from sex. This can make sex a task instead of a pleasure.

Erection problems can affect men at any age. But they are more common as you get older. Physical causes are more common in older men. Emotional causes are more common in younger men.

If you have erections in the morning or at night while you sleep, it's likely not a physical cause. Most men have 3 to 5 erections at night that last about 30 minutes. Talk with your doctor about how to find out if you have normal nighttime erections.

Causes

An erection involves your brain, nerves, hormones, and blood vessels. Anything that interferes with these normal functions can lead to problems getting an erection.

Common causes of erection problems include:

Diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart or thyroid conditions, poor blood flow, depression, or nervous system disorders (such as multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's disease)
    Medicines, including blood pressure medications (especially beta-blockers), heart medications (such as digoxin), some peptic ulcer medications, sleeping pills, and antidepressants
    Nerve damage from prostate surgery
    Nicotine, alcohol, or cocaine use
    Poor communication with your partner
    Repeated feelings of doubt and failure
    Spinal cord injury
    Stress, fear, anxiety, or anger
    Unrealistic sexual expectations, which make sex a task instead of a pleasure


Erection problems become more common with age. However, they can affect men at any age. Physical causes are more common in older men. Emotional causes are more common in younger men.

Low levels of testosterone can lead to erection problems. They may also reduce a man's sex drive.

Home care

For many men, lifestyle changes can help:

 

  •     Cut down on smoking, alcohol, and illegal drug use.
  •     Get plenty of rest and take the time to relax.
  •     Exercise and eat a healthy diet to keep good blood circulation.
  •     Use safe sex practices to prevent HIV and STDs.
  •     Talk openly to your partner about sex and your relationship. If you cannot do this, counseling can help.

Couples who cannot talk to each other are likely to have problems with sexual intimacy. Men who have trouble talking about their feelings may find it hard to share their anxiety about sexual performance. Counseling can help both you and your partner.

When to contact a medical professional

Call your doctor if:

 

  •     The problem does not go away with lifestyle changes
  •     The problem begins after an injury or prostate surgery
  •     You have other symptoms, such as low back pain, abdominal pain, or a change in urination


If erection problems seem to be caused by a medication you are taking, talk to the doctor or your health care provider. You may need to lower the dose or change to another drug. Do not change or stop taking any medications without first talking to your healthcare provider.

Talk to the doctor or your health care provider if your erection problems have to do with a fear of heart problems. Sexual intercourse is usually safe for men with heart problems.

Well you have two problems1. Gas problem,- for this you must avoid fried and spicy food. Take 6 small meals instead of 3 major meals. Take plenty of water. One of your meals should be fruits. Slowly with draw the said medicine. If the problem recurs, take consultation with a gastroenterologist to rule out h pylori infection. For your second problem,- you must maintain good hygiene at the anal area. Wash it with plenty of water twice daily. Avoid constipation or loose stools. Take isafgole 3tsf with a glass of water daily as one of your meals (out of 6). Do a stool examination. Thanks.

How dengue is spread over India so rapidly and what is the precautions and treatment? What is meant by decrease of platelets up to 20000.

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
The principal symptoms of dengue are: High fever and at least two of the following: Severe headache Severe eye pain (behind eyes) Joint pain Muscle and/or bone pain Rash Mild bleeding manifestation (e. G, nose or gum bleed, petechiae, or easy bruising) Watch for warning signs as temperature declines 3 to 5 days after symptoms/fever began, as this is the most dangerous period when platelet counts decline significantly. Report immediately to hospital if any of the following warning signs appear: Severe abdominal pain or persistent vomiting Red spots or patches on the skin Bleeding from nose or gums Vomiting blood Black, tarry stools (feces, excrement) Drowsiness or irritability Pale, cold, or clammy skin Difficulty breathing There is no specific medication for treatment of a dengue infection.Use analgesics (pain relievers) with acetaminophen (crocin or dolo -650 mg) and avoid those containing ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin or aspirin containing drugs. Take rest, drink plenty of fluids like coconut water, lime water etc. Prevention: the best way is to prevent bites by infected mosquitoes. To protect yourself: Avoid visiting heavily populated residential areas, if possible. Use mosquito repellents, even indoors. When outdoors, wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants tucked into socks. Make sure window and door screens are secure and free of holes. If sleeping areas are not screened or air conditioned, use mosquito nets

I am 25 years old working woman. I am suffering with low BP and low breathing problem as when I work for sometime not hard work or just walk for few minutes or go with stairs, my heartbeat starts running fast with trepidation. I have suffered with vitamin b12 deficiency but I have took injections of that before 8-9 months. I have faced problem with my body as well as pain in legs, lower back, finger tips. Swelling on body sometimes with fluffy stomach. I have took thyroid test as well which comes negative alwz. Can anyone please help me out for same?

PGD Maternal Child Health, MBBS
General Physician, Akola
You have not written the actual reading of blood pressure. At your age of 25 a systolic BP reading as low as 100 mm and a diastolic reading of 70 mm should not be labelled as low. As far as feeling tired, breathless and fast heart rate are concerned, these are more likely to be related with your B 12 deficiency which is a cause of anaemia and neuritis. Anaemia causes the heart to beat faster to deliver increased demand of oxygen on slightest exertion which also makes you breathe more number of time in a given time. Your haemoglobin level should be checked periodically along with B 12 levels and necessary replenishment with Iron and injectable B12 should be done accordingly.
