Understanding sexual dysfunction in men

istock 1169178576It is not uncommon for men to experience sexual dysfunction. In fact, there are many reasons why they may be unable to perform sexual intercourse or find sexual satisfaction with their partners. Sexual dysfunction is a term used to describe any stage of a sexual act that keeps the male and/or his partner from experiencing sexual satisfaction. It can occur in the areas of desire, arousal, and orgasm. When sexual dysfunction occurs, it can cause men to feel inadequate or frustrated, often reducing their desire for sex.

What are the causes of sexual dysfunction?

There are different types of dysfunction that can occur. Approximately 30 million men in the United States experience erectile dysfunction, which is the most common form of sexual dysfunction. Men may also deal with other types of dysfunction including:

  • Decreased sexual drive/libido
  • Low testosterone levels
  • Ejaculation disorders
  • Inability to reach orgasm
  • Anatomical problems/conditions

What can be done for sexual dysfunction in men?

The type of dysfunction experienced by a male patient will often determine the best treatment option for an individual. With a proper evaluation with our team to decide the cause, along with discussions regarding the events that led up to the dysfunction, our team can make an educated decision regarding the best course of treatment to consider for that individual. Some of the more common varieties of treatments include:
