Sexuality is an important part of life. Sexual health issues, such as erectile dysfunction and testosterone deficiency can give rise to a range of negative feelings in men who are affected, such as dissatisfaction, frustration, anxiety, embarrassment, shame, disgust and doubt.
Whatever the problem and underlying factors (sickness, medication, male menopause, etc.), it’s often worth it to put on your problem-solving cap on and seek professional help.
You might wonder until what age a man can be sexually active. While men can generally look forward to experiencing physical pleasure well into old age, around 40% of men over 40 experience erectile dysfunction problems.
Men who experience this disorder are either unable to get an erection or keep it long enough to complete intercourse. This type of problem not only has an impact on the man affected but also on his partner.
Multiple causes can be at the root of the problem, including certain illnesses, medications, lifestyle habits, pelvic surgery or psychological factors. To overcome the issue and regain sexual health, it is critical to determine the cause.
Testosterone: An essential hormone
Also known as the desire hormone, testosterone plays a major role in male reproductive health. Also present in lesser amounts in women, this hormone is responsible for sexual drive in both sexes.
Testosterone peaks in adolescence and early adulthood, while levels gradually decrease with age. However, a lack of testosterone can affect men prematurely due to a variety of health issues.
This deficiency can cause a decrease in the intensity of orgasms, a loss of feeling in the reproductive organs and even erectile dysfunction. Various types of testosterone supplements are available through your doctor. Speak with your pharmacist or doctor about the associated benefits and risks to ensure you choose the one that’s right for you.
