It’s always important for you to take your sexual health just as seriously as any other aspect of health.
At Amy Brenner, MD & Associates, we get a lot of questions regarding men’s sexual health, which we are always more than happy to help with! Read on to learn the answers to our most frequently asked questions regarding men’s sexual health.
What is sexual health?
Sexual health isn’t just a topic you learned in middle school sex-ed; it’s a state of well-being that allows men to enjoy sex and perform as best as they can.
Someone with great sexual health:
- Has a desire to have sex
- Can get and maintain an erection
- Reaches an orgasm and ejaculates properly
The thing many men don’t realize is that sexual health isn’t just physical. It requires you to be healthy mentally and socially as well.
Why is sexual health important?
Think about it. If sexual health encompasses your physical, mental, and social well-being, doesn’t that mean it’s something you should take seriously? Poor sexual health can seep into your daily life, and can even affect your happiness and overall outlook on life.
What are common sexual dysfunctions for men?
Common sexual dysfunctions for men include:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Ejaculation disorders
- Low testosterone
All three can be caused by both psychological and physical factors. For instance, stress and performance anxiety can affect your ability to get and maintain an erection just like age can.
Why has my libido gone down?
The reason for a decreased sex drive can come from a variety reasons, so the answer really depends on the person. For many men, low testosterone levels negatively impact libido. You may also have a strain in your intimate relationships that take away your desire to have sex.
Does testosterone hormone therapy really work?
Yes! Our doctors at Amy Brenner, MD & Associates have been using testosterone optimization to effectively replenish testosterone levels. Depending on your specific needs, you can get injections, pellet therapy, or use a daily cream.
Can erectile dysfunction be fixed without pills?
