Sexual health concerns everyone. Knowing what’s going on in a man’s world provides insight into his sexual well-being.
Men over age 50 have some degree of limited sexual response. While sexual response for men is largely physical, it riddles many with shame, guilt and embarrassment. Partners feel undesirable or worry about affairs when it’s just physical.
Young men also face performance issues, but these are largely based on the assumption of what is normal. Learning the reality of biology helps reduce shame and disappointment when the body doesn’t respond on demand.
Erection difficulties are often related to chronic diseases. Diabetes and heart disease affect overall health. Addressing the underlying issue can help. In fact, trouble getting or maintaining an erection is an early indication of heart disease. If it happens a few times, see your doctor.
An erection typically lasts five to six minutes during intercourse. Upon climax, adrenaline is released in the body to shut down the erection and resume regular blood flow. Erectile supplements and medications support or stimulate the rise and fall of the erection.
Men, know you are not alone when you don’t rise to the occasion when expected.
Listen as Dr. Aaron Spitz joins Dr. Pamela Peeke to discuss erections and performance concerns.
