Treatment of Sexual Problems: 

Unfortunately, the medical profession is well aware that many sexual problems are managed inappropriately and due to the personal and intimate nature of sexual problems the causes of these issues are not resolved and symptoms can re-emerge in the near future. The repetitive occurance of these problems often times leads to a strong reinforcement of “failure” causing additional psychological conditions compounding the problem – also resulting in the man not wanting to seek additional treatment and unfortunately can result in this person suffering from these symptoms their entire life.

The information on this website is an excellent starting point for educating yourself on common sexual problems, however if you feel your problem is serious or been suffering long-term, it is advised that your medical doctor be consulted.

For many men, the caused of sexual dysfunction are related to psychological factors such as performance anxiety.

 Situational anxiety

This is a type of anxiety which arises from an earlier bad incident or lack of experience. This anxiety often leads to development of fear towards sexual activity and avoidance. In return evading leads to a cycle of increased anxiety and desensitization of the penis.In some cases, erectile dysfunction may be due to marital disharmony. Marriage counseling sessions are recommended in this situation.

Lifestyle changes such as discontinuing smoking, drug or alcohol abuse can also help in some types of erectile dysfunction. Several medications like Viagra, cialis and Levitra have become available to help people with erectile dysfunction. These medications do work in about 60% of men. In the rest, the medications may not work because of wrong diagnosis or chronic history.

Another type of medication that is effective in roughly 85% of men is called intracavernous pharmacotherapy — used by companies such as Boston Medical Group, Performance Medical Centers and independent doctors — and involves injecting a vasodilator drug directly into the penis in order to stimulate an erection. This method has an increased risk of priapism if used in conjunction with other treatments, and localized pain.
