Penis Health Could Be Impacted by Shift Work

Penis Health Could Be Impacted by Shift Work

Penis Health Could Be Impacted by Shift Work

The 9-to-5 job is part of the American dream, but the reality is that many people have jobs that don't fit in the traditional framework. Many people are non-standard shift workers, meaning they start work when others are ending, usually working sometime between 6:00 pm and 6:00 am. Men who fall into this category should be aware of a possible increased risk of penis health issues compared to their brethren who work more traditional hours.

Shift work

How many people work this kind of non-standard shift work? One study suggests that up to 20% of the labor force falls into this category. That includes about three million people who work the "graveyard shift," starting work at 11:00 p.m., or later. The range of people doing non-standard shift work includes nurses, bakers, policemen, technical support workers, salespeople, computer programmers, financial advisors, factory workers, miners and many other occupations.

There are often many advantages associated with this kind of work. For example, many people who are enrolled in college work shifts, as do many parents who are therefore able to spend time during the day watching their young children. And in some cases, the pay for shift work is better than the pay for the same job during "regular" hours.

Downsides

But there are downsides to shift work. Working "atypical" hours can affect the natural circadian rhythms, which can in turn affect how long and how deeply a person sleeps. Many shift workers are more tired than others, which can translate into accidents on the job, at home or on the road.

And shift work is associated with other health conditions. For example, shift workers tend to be at greater risk of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, ulcers, depression, cognitive impairment, heart disease, stroke and cancer.

Penis health

As is often the case, this association with general health deficits is matched by a potential for penis health issues for men who conduct shift work. Among the issues more likely to occur in male shift workers are:

Hypogonadism. Most men who know anything about hypogonadism associate it with testes and/or a penis that are much smaller than usual. While that can be true of hypogonadism that occurs during fetal development, in adult males, hypogonadism tends to refer to a decreased production of testosterone and/or sperm. It is often characterized by one or more of the following:

- Erectile dysfunction and/or infertility

- Decrease in muscle mass and/or body hair

- Osteoporosis (loss of bone mass)

- Development of soft breast tissue

- Diminished sex drive

- Fatigue

- Difficulty focusing and concentrating

- Hot flashes

Hormone therapy may be recommended as treatment.

Lower urinary tract symptoms. The bladder, urethra, sphincter and/or prostate may not function properly. This may lead to a variety of issues, including pain while urinating, an increased frequency of urination (especially when sleeping), increased urge to urinate and incontinence.

Prostate cancer. After skin cancer, this is the most common cancer among men - and male shift workers are at a somewhat higher chance of contracting it. Treatment success is good if initiated early.

Male shift workers should be aware of these potential penis health issues and report any problems to their doctors early. It's also wise to consult with a doctor about any strategies for dealing with potential challenges presented by shift work, such as sleep pattern disturbances.

Whether a shift worker or not, penis health should be a primary concern for a man. He can do more to maintain his penis health by the daily application of a top notch penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Select a crème that contains a combination of moisturizing agents, such as Shea butter and vitamin E. Be sure the crème also includes vitamin A, which has anti-bacterial properties that help fight persistent and annoying penis odor.

Hello, If she has missed her menses by more than 7 days then she should get a urine pregnancy test done , which if negative then the menses have been delayed possibly due to stress induced hormonal imbalances. regards

There is very less chance for her to get pregnant. Wait till her periods to come And after 5 days of expected date then just to be on the safe side go for a pregnancy test. For more suggestion, you can consult with us on Lybrate personally.

Hello! Lets take your queries pointwise: 1. Disparity of 6 and 8 weeks: sometimes especially in people with dalayed periods the conception might be delayed causing a discrepancy in weeks. It may also occur in failed pregnancy or missed abortion. 2. Only yolk sac seen no fetal pole: yolk sac is seen intrans vaginal scan at 5.5 weeks while at 6 weeks fetal pole with cardiac activity is noticeable. So at 6 weeks usg date it might be early or again a missed pregnancy. 3. Beta hcg must double in 48 to 72 hours: it has increased but not by double in 48 hrs. So again we ate in a fix. The best advise would be to continue your susten for 1 more week and get a scan repeated at the end of 7 days for fetal pole/ cardiac activity.

Can girl pregnant on 20th day or period cycle? please suggest because period is delaying around 5 days.
There is always a possibility specially if you have long cycles like 35-40 days. I would advice you to get a urine pregnancy test done just to be sure.

This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. It looks like you are anaemic. If you have back pain after you sit for long hours then it is due to your haemoglobin levels as it is important to check that. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back / leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. If you have leg pain then you have to rule out the casues for having leg pain. First of all check your weight and your haemoglobin levels, as Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having leg pain though there are no issues with the knee joint or back pain. If not if the pain radiates down the back of thigh and legs then it might be due to sciatica. Kindly consult the nearby physiotherapist. Hope you recover soon from the leg pain.

The body needs time to repair itself. Lack of sleep can upset the body's metabolism and possibly hasten the onset of age-related conditions.
