About Male Sexual Dysfunction

Male sexual dysfunction is a difficult and complicated subject to discuss.  It can have many broad symptoms and can create tension and misunderstanding between a man and his partner.


Men may experience difficulties and challenges with:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Ejaculatory dysfunction
  • Orgasm
  • Anxiety and/or depression

Treatment

Fortunately, there are many avenues of treatment for male sexual dysfunction, depending on the cause.

For those men with underlying medical conditions, such as diabetes or male hormonal dysfunction, medicine and lifestyle modifications may be prescribed.  For men who have had treatment for cancer, or other trauma, there are surgical and medical treatments that may be considered.

The first step is acknowledging the issue. The second is finding a trained and experience physician who can give you a full evaluation and who is knowledgeable about the most current and reliable treatments for these challenges.
