Our team of experts has the specialized experience and training to diagnose and treat men’s sexual health issues including low testosterone, premature ejaculation, and erectile dysfunction. Whether you’re experiencing sexual dysfunction caused by underlying health conditions or mental health issues, American Male Medical can help. Here are 4 questions our patients frequently ask our specialists.
Sexual dysfunction can be caused by both mental health disorders and physical health issues. Some common factors affecting men’s sexual health include:
• Low testosterone
• Prescribed medications
• Alcohol abuse
• Drug abuse
• Steroid abuse
• Nerve damage
• Blood vessel disorders
• Performance anxiety
• Increased stress
• Marital conflict
Your diagnosis will likely fall under one of the four types of sexual dysfunction.
1. Low Libido: decreased desire to engage in physical intimacy
2. Erectile Dysfunction: otherwise known as impotence, ED is the inability to achieve and maintain an erection
3. Premature Ejaculation: when men consistently ejaculate prematurely and can’t seem to control their orgasm
4. Inhibited Ejaculation: inability for men to climax and ejaculate
Did you know that not having sex for long periods of time can negatively impact the rest of your mental and physical health? If you’re not engaging in frequent sex, you may experience the following:
• Increased Stress and Anxiety
Studies show that a decrease in sexual activity can increase anxiety, stress, and depression. Sex releases oxytocin and endorphins that can reduce stress and improve sleep. A fulfilling sex life creates feelings of intimacy, relaxation, and connection with a trusted partner. Each of these feelings is known to decrease mental health issues.
• Unhealthy Relationships
Healthy sex life can be a reflection of a healthy relationship. Couples who frequently engage in satisfying physical intimacy are proven to be happier and stay together longer. Sex can greatly increase intimacy and connection between romantic partners.
• Weakened Immune System
People who are sexually active have higher levels of an antibody called immunoglobulin A. This antibody fights off illnesses, prevents infections, and stops bacteria from attacking your immune system.
• Prostate Cancer
Research has proven that men who have more sex are less likely to develop prostate cancer. Men who reach climax around twenty times a month have lower chances of getting prostate cancer compared to men who ejaculate only a few times a month. That being said, it’s incredibly important to make sure you’re following safe sex practices to prevent sexually transmitted diseases.
Other benefits of sex include increased sex drive, lower blood pressure, improved cardiovascular health, relieves pain, and helps those with insomnia.
Your sexual health may be lower than normal due to substance abuse, aging, low levels of testosterone, excessive exercise, no exercise, mental health conditions, and prescription medications. Low libido is an extremely common men’s health issue that can be easily treated. Treatments such as simple lifestyle changes, hormone replacement therapy, medication changes, counseling, and PT-141 peptide therapy.
