Sexual health for men has achieved a whole new definition and importance in the modern world. It is now a widely understood fact that sexual health and other related activities are very important contributors to a man’s overall happiness and state of mind.
There are various problems that can have an adverse effect on a man’s sexual health. These issues include problems and disorders like erectile dysfunction (impotence), premature ejaculation, delayed climax and even low levels of male hormones.
But the good news is that each of these problems has a variety of treatment options that can be used effectively. The only thing that you must keep in mind is that you must never blame yourself or feel inadequate because of such issues.
Also it is wise to avoid self diagnosis and self treatment as a doctor will be in a much better position to help you with your problem.
Ways of Men’s Sexual Health Treatment
The most famous buzzword when it comes to erectile dysfunction and related problems is Viagra. This medicine has brought a new revolution for men who have this problem.
This medicine helps in improving the flow of blood to the genital region and also helps the penis retain the erection during sexual intercourse. This is not an over the counter drug and has to be prescribed by your doctor if required.
A man with erectile dysfunction can also be treated with the help of certain medicines that are injected directly into the penile region. Such medicines are very similar to Viagra in terms of composition and effects.
People who have hormonal deficiencies like low testosterone levels can also have many sexual health issues. Such patients are also treated with the help of hormone replacement therapy where testosterone is injected into the body at regular intervals.
These are rings that are not used very often in sexual treatments but are actually quite effective. They are small rings that can be fitted at the base of the penis and are usually quite tight. The main function of these rings is to reduce the backward flow of blood from the penile region.
This makes the erection last longer. Obviously this is an option only for those men who can get an erection but cannot sustain it for too long. These rings cannot cause an erection to happen in the first place.
Ointments and Creams
This is another way of helping a man sustain an erection for longer. Lidocaine is a commonly available desensitizing medication that numbs the area that it is applied on. Of course this will also take away a lot of the pleasure from the act of sexual intercourse.
It is advised that the person should apply the ointment before having sex and should wipe it off completely before penetration. This will make sure that the partner does not get affected by the medicine as well. It is also a good idea to wear a condom in case there is any ointment left on the penis even after wiping.
