Common Sexual Problems In Men
Ejaculation disorders are the most common and frustrating sexual problems in men. Ejaculation disorder can be of different types depending upon the kind of problem an individual may have while ejaculating or trying to ejaculate. Ejaculation disorders include premature ejaculation, retarded or inhibited ejaculation and retrograde ejaculation.
Premature ejaculation happens if you ejaculate way too soon while inhibited or retarded ejaculation occurs if you are too slow to ejaculate. In retrograde ejaculation the ejaculate instead of flowing out from the penis travels backward into the bladder.Both psychological and physical factors may be responsible for such disorders and proper treatment can successfully eliminate such problems. Stress and certain medical conditions can also be responsible for these disorders.
Erectile dysfunction or impotence is the failure to achieve an erection or maintain it to enjoy satisfying sex. Erectile dysfunction may also result from psychological factors and or physical factors that may be blocking enough blood supply. Medical conditions such as atherosclerosis may be responsible to block blood supply while nervous disorders, excessive stress and extreme performance anxiety may also become responsible for erectile dysfunction.
