Mens Sexual Health
A man’s sexual health isn’t just about ensuring that no infections are present. It’s about many things: sexual function, and the role of both the brain and the body in keeping sexual function in a normal, healthy state.
Normal sexual function means being able to satisfy both yourself and your partner, although there may also be issues on your partner’s side too. Discussing things with your partner is key to determining what, if any, changes need to be made in the bedroom. Men experiencing sexual function and behaviour issues outside this normal range may be dealing with issues either related to their psychological state or ideas around sex, or it may have an underlying physiological cause, such as diabetes or medication use.
An experienced doctor can help to identify any issues, their causes, and a course of action to help treat the problem.
