Problems with potential: types of interference

Impotence is the gradual decline and extinction of male sexual function. The disorder can remind itself periodically after the age of 40, and with age, the man only gets stronger if no action is taken. There are symptoms (or criteria) that allow a doctor to diagnose a decrease in potency in a man:

  1. Lack of sexual attraction of men to women.
  2. With sexual desire, a man still has difficulty achieving an erection, that is, erectile dysfunction is observed.
  3. Men should not insert an erect penis into a woman's vagina.
  4. A man experiences premature ejaculation, while the erection is very short.
  5. A man experiences a delay or even complete absence of ejaculation.
  6. To achieve orgasm, a man needs special conditions (for example, in a car, elevator, parking lot, etc. , where other people can see sexual intercourse, or in other non-standard conditions).
consultation with a doctor for problems with potency

There are 2 types of impotence, based on the nature of its occurrence:

  • organic. This type of disorder occurs due to any problem in the body: certain diseases, medications, injuries, etc.
  • psychogenic. This disorder occurs due to any psychological factor: stress, subconscious fear of failure in sex, insecurity, psychological trauma, etc.

However, there are many reasons that can contribute to the development of potential disorders. It is very important to know about them, because it is the identification of the cause of the problem that is the first step to get rid of the problem itself.

Problems with potency: causes

What to do if a man is sexually harassed? First of all, you need to identify the reason that led to this.

Among the most common causes of the development of problems in men are the following:

doctors and mature men with weak potential
  • irregular sex life. If a man's sex life is not organized, potency decreases and sexual behavior is disturbed.
  • contagious disease. Sexually transmitted diseases, modern medicine treats quickly and effectively. But only drugs that provide a good therapeutic effect significantly reduce potency. Therefore, too active sexual behavior, sex with different partners is not the best option. The danger for potency is also not completely cured diseases of the genitourinary system: prostatitis, orchitis, vesiculitis, urethritis, etc.
  • chronic disease. Diseases such as hypertension, endocrine system disorders, diabetes mellitus, prostate hyperplasia, significantly reduce sexual desire.
  • bad habits and objective factors. Alcohol abuse, drug abuse, passive lifestyle, smoking, irregular sleep and diet, bad climate are also enemies to male sexual power.
  • age factor. After 40 years, the "first bell" that weakens men's sexual strength may appear. At the same time, you need to understand that each person has his own body, his own rhythm, his own concept of norms. Therefore, you should not take as an axiom the norm set by the doctor - at least 1 sexual intercourse per week. If a man has a norm, for example, 1 act in 10 days, then you should not "sound the alarm" and prove to yourself and your partner that everything is in order with his potential. This will lead to body fatigue, and then really to distraction.

For any man, the fact that he is no longer able to do everything he was able to do recently is a huge stress. But impotence is treated quickly and effectively. And the sooner a person turns to a specialist, the faster and easier it is to solve the problem.

Problems with potency in men: physiological aspects

male potency problems

The emergence of impotence is very easy to explain in terms of physiology. To do this, you just need to understand the specifics of the structure of the male penis and the mechanism of initiation of erection. The body of the penis has a spongy structure that contains many cavities. This is what allows the erection process to begin.

When the member is at rest, blood circulation occurs as follows: blood quietly enters the cavity through the arteries, and exits through the veins. In a state of sexual arousal, there is a sudden increase in blood flow to the cave, while the veins narrow, which prevents the outflow of blood. And every cavity is full of blood. Externally, this is precisely reflected in the tension and enlargement of the penis.

Keep in mind that almost every man at least once has a situation where he cannot achieve an erection. And this is not a pathology, let alone a sign of impotence. If such a situation occurs continuously, then only in this case is it possible to diagnose impotence.

Physiological nature of impotence

There are several causes of impotence, which are purely physiological, or physical. This includes:

effects of nicotine on potency
  • hormonal disorders. First of all, the cause may be dysfunction of the gonads, which are responsible for testosterone production. This problem has several signs: voice tone increases, excess fat is stored in the hips, buttocks, chest, hair growth on the body and face slows down. Another cause may be a pituitary tumor. This is fraught with the fact that the tumor actively produces prolactin. It is the excess of this hormone that causes the disorder.
  • cavernous tissue sclerosis. In other words, the thin tissue of the penile cavity dies and is replaced by rough tissue. The cause of sclerosis, in turn, can be injury to the penis, priapism, deliberate delay in sexual intercourse (if this is a frequent practice).
  • cardiovascular system disorders. Diseases such as aortic aneurysm, varicose veins, and atherosclerosis can lead to male problems with potency. They directly affect the process of inflow and outflow of blood in the penis. In particular, blood flow to the penis may become insufficient, which will contribute to prolonged and sometimes painful erections. In this case, the member is, as it were, in a semi-excited state. Or, on the contrary, there may be too strong an outflow of blood, which allows an erection to occur quickly, but just as quickly and end. Sometimes a man does not have time to complete sexual intercourse.
  • nervous system disorders. Diseases such as epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis can cause problems in sexual life. However, often this disease worsens a person's condition and reduces his quality of life until sex becomes the last thing he thinks about.

Problems with potency in men: psychological aspects

Impotence can also have a psychogenic nature. This means psychological factors that affect a man's sexual power. These possible reasons usually include:

complex and fear and its effect on potency
  • psychological trauma. This can be various situations: for example, a man experiences sexual failure, but he does not receive support from a woman. Even worse, if a woman shows not only hatred or annoyance, but laughs at a man, accuses him of not loving her, or, even worse, calls him impotent. A woman's behavior and reaction in such situations play a big role.
  • stress, nervous tension, depression. The life of a modern man is full of stressful situations; for most people, life is literally a race to the bottom. It is not surprising that sooner or later a man begins to experience difficulties in intimate problems.
  • complex, subconscious fear. According to andrologists, it is in the soul that the reason why a man begins to experience difficulties. The complex that it is impossible to satisfy a woman (for example, during the first intimacy), the fear of "disturbing" (especially if there is already precedent), etc. - all this immediately affects the potential of a man. In addition, there may be partner incompatibility, which can also cause impotence. According to andrologists, of all the possible causes of impotence, the most common is psychological. Therefore, usually the treatment of men with such a diagnosis is carried out by a psychologist (sexologist). <

Treatment methods for potential disorders

There are several approaches to treating the disorder. Depending on the severity of the disease, its cause, the age and general health of the patient and other factors, the doctor may suggest options:

Medical therapy

Pharmacies abound with various drugs "for potency". But not every man thinks that they can, on the contrary, harm the body. In addition, if a man, for example, suffers from impotence due to a disorder of the endocrine system, then no matter how many pills he takes, they will not help him, because the situation will improve only after the endocrine disorder is eliminated. Therefore, you must always remember that drug treatment is the prerogative of specialists.

Consultation of a psychologist (sexologist)

Psychologists (sexologists) can help not only in cases of psychogenic impotence, but also when a man has a very difficult diagnosis, falls into a state of depression, etc. A psychologist can help a person:

  1. Determine the source of the problem (fear, complex, stress, uncertainty, etc. ).
  2. Solve this psychological problem (for example, get rid of complexes or teach how to cope with stress).
  3. Get out of despair, depression, etc. , if this experience exists.
  4. Provide psychological support, help patients see the future with optimism.

As a rule, if a person seriously suffers from an illness, drug treatment is combined with psychotherapy, which gives an excellent therapeutic effect.

Penile prosthesis

This is a drastic measure, used as a last resort, when no treatment method has helped. Usually this method is offered to men at a younger age. Surgery gives a 100% effect, is performed at such a high level that the specialist does not always realize that a penile prosthesis has been performed.

Only doctors treat patients. He conducts diagnostics, a comprehensive examination, identifies the cause of the disorder, and only based on this data prescribes the necessary course of treatment for a particular patient. Sometimes psychologists work with both partners, because the effectiveness of treatment directly depends on the correct behavior of the wife.

Extra activities

This includes, for example, dietary recommendations, which in the early stages of the disorder can even resolve the situation by itself. In more severe cases, a diet is a mandatory additional measure. It is important for any man to eat foods rich in vitamins E, C, beta-carotene.

Vitamin E contains all types of nuts, sunflower seeds, beef liver, buckwheat, oats, eggs, vegetable oils (especially soybeans) in their raw form.

Vitamin C is found in sea fish, seafood, berries, citrus fruits (especially lemons), fruits.

Carrots, bell peppers, all types of cabbage, vegetables (especially parsley), apricots contain beta-carotene in large quantities.
