Men’s Health and Sexuality

Like in many aspects of life, there is a close connection between the state of your health and your ability to function sexually. This article offers a review of some of the problems men suffer from, as a result of a decrease in Testosterone during Menopause and damage to the prostate gland.

Which physical phenomena affect sexual functioning? And most important, how can they be resolved naturally?
Sexuality, desire, yearning for human touch and the ability to perform, are directly affected by your mood and your state of health. Sometimes you are not even aware that you have any kind of health problem and you find yourself being troubled by your inability to perform sexually.
In addition, in a state of sexual or erectile dysfunction, your body signals you to be examined. Just like in a case of the flu, there is no need to panic. The right treatment will lead to recovery.
In order to understand more and identify if there is really a health problem causing sexual dysfunction on you own, continue reading. We have reviewed some of the problems and causes of impotence which men suffer from.

Menopause and a decrease in Testosterone
About ten percent of men between the ages of 50 and 60 suffer from Menopause related symptoms. These symptoms occur due to a decrease in the level of Testosterone (the hormone responsible for libido). A decrease in the “libido hormone” begins in their 30’s. Close to 30% of men over the age of 60 suffer from it, and so do close to 40% of men over the age of 70.
A decrease in testosterone might cause Osteoporosis (which damages bone density). This illness is accompanied by a series of symptoms that characterize male Menopause. Testosterone is accepted or absorbed in the male body by receptors that are connected to the brain, muscles, skeleton and prostate gland. Therefore a decrease in the secretion of this hormone has a negative effect on the body and causes a variety of symptoms:
  • Unexplainable tantrums and a decrease in work capacity.
  • Depressed moods.
  • A decrease in vitality and a tendency to be tired.
  • A slower metabolism, muscle atrophy and an increase in fat mass.
  • A sexual dysfunction due to biological changes in the body’s blood vessels.
Disease of the arteries and high cholesterol cause erectile dysfunction.

Damage to the prostate gland
One of the most burdensome phenomena amongst men of fifty and older is the enlargement of the prostate gland. The prostate is a sexual gland which produces part of the semen. It is a small gland that surrounds the neck of the bladder and the urethra. Its location is what causes the disorder when it changes in size. A benign enlargement causes erectile dysfunction and a 40% decrease in the frequency of the sex act. In most cases the problem can be successfully treated with medication, however, most men do not receive treatment early enough and suffer from side effects for many years. An enlarged prostate causes a partial or full blockage of the urethra, pain when urinating and a severed flow of urine that can cause an acute urine blockage. Such a case demands immediate medical attention.
In the past, treatment of this ailment required surgery, but today most patients are treated with advanced medication.
