Penile Health and Wellness: When It's Time to Talk to a Urologist
Although there are plenty of men who willingly see their physicians on a regular basis, the stereotype that men are unwilling to visit doctors does have some truth in it. There are numerous reasons why, from fear of what might be discovered to expenses associated with medical care to simply having difficulty with finding enough time. Nonetheless, men who care about their health need to see a doctor at least once a year. But what about penile health? When does a guy need to consider seeing a urologist instead of his primary care provider?
Actually, in many cases, seeing a primary care provider first is a good idea. They can then recommend whether the penis-specific issue is one that requires a visit to the urologist. But in other cases, a man may know that the urologist should be the guy to see.
Reasons to see a urologist
There can be numerous reasons why a man might need to pay a visit to a urologist. For example:
- It hurts to urinate. This may be the sign of a urinary tract infection, a sexually-transmitted infection (STI), or some other problem. Determining the root cause as early as possible is important, as the doctor can recommend the proper course of treatment. The treatment will be more successful if it is started early on.
- Blood is in the urine. This can be caused by any number of things, including a urinary tract infection or a kidney stone. But it can also be an early warning sign of something more serious, such as kidney or bladder cancer. Again, identifying the cause early on increases the chances of successful treatment.
- It's hard to control the urine. Urinary incontinence can present in many forms. It may be a situation where a man feels a marked increase in the urgency and frequency of urination. It may be difficult to completely empty the bladder. It may mean that a guy urinates before reaching the bathroom, or that some leakage occurs during physical activity or while coughing. Many men are embarrassed to admit they experience incontinence, but talking to a urologist about this is essential.
- There's pain in the abdomen or lower back. Often pain in one or both of these areas may be a sign of prostatitis, especially if it is accompanied by fever or chills. Prostatitis means a swollen and inflamed prostate, usually due to a bacterial infection, and typically requires antibiotics.
- Pain or lumps in the balls. Lumps or pain can be a sign of an infection, a benign cyst, or, more seriously, testicular cancer. Fortunately, the prognosis for testicular cancer is very good, if it is caught early - which is why seeing a doctor is important.
- Elevated PSAs or kidney issues. If a primary care physician detects elevated Prostate Specific Antigens in a blood test, it could indicate possible prostate cancer. And x-rays indicating problems with the kidneys usually require a urologist's expertise to evaluate and treat.
- Erectile dysfunction. Many men feel embarrassed or even ashamed to admit that they are having problems with their erections, but they need to overcome that shyness and seek out a urologist. Determining the reason for the problem can help a doctor develop strategies for treating it - and every man wants his erections to work as perfectly as possible.
A urologist can provide expert care for better penis health. It also pays to utilize a top flight penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) to help maintain the penis in good shape on an everyday basis. The best crème will include vitamin A, the antibacterial properties of which help fight unwanted (and unpleasant) penis odor. Look for a crème that also includes vitamin C, a key component of collagen, which gives skin its tone and elasticity and is vital for penile erections.
Itchy Penis: Was It the Lubricant or the Latex?
Sometimes a man suddenly finds himself with an itchy penis without any idea of what is causing it. Other times, he has a fairly good idea. For example, if he develops a really itchy penis after using a condom, and this happens consistently, it's reasonable to assume that this particular penis care issue is related to the protection he is using. But before he goes shopping for a new kind of condom to use, it's worth asking, "What is really causing this itchy penis? Is it the latex? Or is it the lubricant?"
A good question
It's a question well worth asking. Many condoms come pre-lubricated now, and many guys who use unlubricated latex barriers will add some lubricant to make things proceed more smoothly. Heck, some guys even add lubricant to a condom that already is pre-lubed. So if a guy has an allergic reaction after using the condom, it may be due to a latex allergy, or it may be due to the lubricant involved.
Some people seem incredulous that a guy could be allergic to latex or to lubricants. But the fact is that it's possible to develop an allergy to just about anything - and quite a few people do have reactions to latex and/or lubricant.
In terms of the penis, sometimes it manifests as itchiness, but it can also have visible symptoms as well - most often a reddening of the penis or the appearance of rashes or bumps. Sometimes it can cause swelling (not the kind associated with a normal erection) and tenderness. The exact allergic reaction will depend upon the individual.
So how does a person find out if the reaction is to the latex or the lubricant - especially if the condom is pre-lubricated and the specific lubricant used is not known?
One way is to take a condom (unused) and cut it in two. Take one half and soak it in soapy water for an hour or so, then rinse it thoroughly. Use paper towels to soak up excess water, then let it hang to dry. Then take the two halves - one of which has been washed and one of which has not - and place one on one arm and one on the other for 10 minutes. Remove, and wait to see if there are any signs of a reaction. If a reaction shows up on the one which is lubricated, it is most likely the lubricant. If both arms show a reaction, it is more likely to be the latex. (This method is not 100% accurate, but it gives a generally good idea of the cause.)
Alternatively, if the lubricant is self-applied, a test can simply be done applying the lubricant to the body and seeing if there is a reaction or not.
When the source is determined, a guy can then proceed to either (a) purchase non-latex condoms, (b) buy unlubricated condoms, or (c) change the lubricant he is currently using to one which is hopefully more suited to his skin.
A lubricant or latex allergy is only one potential cause of an itchy penis, of course. When dry skin is a cause, regular application of a first rate penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) is urged. Penis skin can dry out for many reasons, resulting in flaky skin which is prone to itching. Keeping the penis skin moisturized with agents like vitamin E and shea butter can stave off many an itchy situation. It also helps to use a crème that contains L-carnitine; serious itching can damage penis sensitivity, and the neuroprotective properties of L-carnitine can help maintain penis sensation at an appropriate level.
Depression and some antidepressants curb sexual drive. This has a negative effect on the depression as sex releases 'happy hormones'. Thus, depression and your sex life share a cyclic relationship. The effect of depression on your sex life is a result of both brain functioning and physical changes in the body.
Here are a few things you can work on if stress or depression is ruining your sex life:
- Break the pattern: Depression often makes a person withdraw from others and cease to enjoy any experience. This becomes a thought pattern that cannot be cured with medication. Talking to a counselor can help unlearn these thought patterns and help people form new social bonds. As part of the treatment, the patient will need to find and explore new ways of enjoying sex that can strengthen strained relationships. Talk to your partner.
- Having an open conversation with your partner: It is the key to improving relationships and one's sex life. Talk about your sexual needs and help your partner understand your mental barriers to sex. Find forms of foreplay that appeal to both of you. It is also important for you and your partner to understand that there is no 'standard' to how often you should have sex or how you should feel after it.
- Try to stay away from performance anxiety: Don't let performance anxiety take a toll on your sex life. Studies show that being conscious about their performance in bed leads men to lose their erection, which takes all the pleasure away from intimate moments. Instead of being stressed about your sexual performance, focus on your partner's needs and attend to them for a more pleasurable sex life.
- Don't make it seem necessary to have sex even if your partner is tired: If you find that stress due to problems at workplace or financial issues is affecting your partner considerably, then respect his/her decision of saying no to sex. Don't pressurise your partner to get intimate just because you want it. Your patience and understanding nature will increase your partner's admiration towards you, in turn leading to a more passionate and happier sex life.
