Sexual health issues are problems that occur during the the sexual response cycle which may inhibit the completion of a sexual intercourse or hinders the achievement of sexual satisfaction. These issues may create problems within the relationship and the couple’s sex life. Most of these sexual health issues are treatable, a fact that prompts people to talk about their sexual problems to their partner and health care provider. For men, the most prominent sexual health issues are:


  • Ejaculation Problems
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Loss of Libido or Sexual Desire

Who are Prone to These Sexual Health Issues?

These prominent sexual health issues may affect men of all ages, although they may only discover it when they enter the age of sexual maturity. However, older men and those with medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, prostate cancer and depression are more prone to have these sexual health issues. When a man ages, he is gradually losing his sex hormones called testosterone which are responsible for a man’s sexual desire. Medical conditions and medications may also alter the normal blood flow, functions of the body and movement of the chemicals in the brain which affect a man’s ability to hold and sustain erections and ejaculations.

 Ejaculation Problems

Ejaculation problems are of three types: premature ejaculation, retarded ejaculation and retrograde ejaculation. Premature ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates before or soon after he penetrates the vagina. Retarded ejaculation happens when the ejaculation is slow and gradual. Lastly, retrograde ejaculation occurs when the ejaculation is forced back and not excreted through the urethra.

These ejaculation problems usually occur out of performance anxiety, when a man is unattracted to his partner or if he is depressed and stressed. Some medical conditions such as diabetes and nerve disorders may prompt the occurrence of retrograde ejaculation.

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction or impotence is one of the prominent sexual health issues many men deal with. It is a condition when blood is inhibited from entering the chambers of the penis and fails to generate an erection. It can be caused by low testosterone levels, atherosclerosis, stress, performance anxiety and depression.

Loss of Libido

Inhibited sexual desire or loss of libido is more prominent among men who have low levels of testosterone, diabetes and those who are dealing with psychological disorders such as depression and anxiety. Men with inhibited desire find themselves difficult to get stimulated and unable to perform a satisfying intercourse.


These prominent sexual health issues are treatable and can be managed especially if men are open to talk about it. Men with these problems must determine and address the root causes by talking to their doctor. Furthermore, open communication with their partners and living a healthy lifestyle can significantly contribute to the solution of their problems.
