Men's potency

Preservation of potency – the basis of the quality and enjoyment of life for every sexually active men. Due to further aging of the organism, the influence of civilization factors (alcohol, nicotine, drugs, pollution, stress) and various diseases (diabetes mellitus, obesity, hypertension, etc.), the condition of male potency is getting worse.

Men's potency and age

With age, along with the graying hair and creaking joints are starting to age and blood vessels, affects the potency of men. In them to form atherosclerotic food stamps, the confrontation of blood flow to the penis. This means that some of the tissue around the blood vessels lose of oxygen and nutrients.

In 40 years, less than 10% of men are concerned about their erection, and after 40 – already more than 50%. With the passing of the years, this problem grows and becomes relevant for the vast majority of men.

Another problem lies in the fact that after 40 years begins to decline the production level of testosterone the testicles. Testosterone promotes the health of the cardiovascular system, muscle mass, bone density, and tone the body. Studies carried out on animals have shown that low levels of testosterone affect penile tissue.

In the tissues of the penis there are receptors for testosterone, which through communication with the hormone are more effective. So the lack of the male sex hormone has an effect on the efficiency of work of these receptors, which in turn prevents penile erection (rigidity of the penis will be obviously inadequate). This phase in men is often called the "male culmen" or "in andropause". However, unlike the female menopause, specifically affecting their fertility, it is not as dramatic for men.

Among the other most common psychological changes that occur in 40-65 years old, is a disruption of concentration and attention, fatigue, disorders of perception. We can add to them and such physical factors as: the reduction of visual acuity, pain in the joints and is often a set of excess weight (obesity). All this inevitably leads to a reduction in sexual activity and performance, which looks like this:

  1. In a state of excitement – with the age of the man, they need still more time and increase the direct stimulation. In addition, we also found a weakening of the rigidity of the penis during erection.
  2. In the phase of plateau – this phase is longer, the ejaculation occurs with a delay and significantly less noticeable.
  3. The permit phase (ejaculation and orgasm) – the feeling of orgasm lasts shorter and weaker, the volume of ejaculate is significantly less.

However, regular sexual activity may help you maintain an erection and even, perhaps, to extend the duration of sexual life. Studies show that men older than 50 years, which have at least two orgasms per month, have a longer sex life than those who have neither. About the benefits of sex, both in the physical and in the psychological relation, you can read in the following article.

One of the main lessons android of manhood is that an active sex life creates favorable cycle – it is erectile dysfunction less likely, protects a man's prostate and even stops the shrinking of the penis with age. Scientific studies prove that sexual activity can be enjoyable even at an advanced age. But only if you care about your efficiency!

the reasons for the reduced potency

Connection male potency and overall health

Problems with achieving and maintaining erection can be a symptom of other fundamental diseases.

Depression undermines sexual desire. At the same time, antidepressants often may limit sexual function because they reduce desire in the brain. Although some drugs, such as tricyclic antidepressants, is often used to treat mental health problems, can spontaneously cause an erection, maybe because they induce metabolic changes.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) can be an early sign of multiple sclerosis, which damages the nerves. From 5 to 10% of men, patients with multiple sclerosis suffering from ED.

Erection problems can also be the first symptom of diabetes because higher blood sugar level prevents the automatic production of nitric oxide – a substance that relaxes the smooth muscles of the blood vessels. In addition, the sugar in the blood destroys the walls of blood vessels.

Difficulties with erection can be linked with atherosclerotic plates in the arteries (risk factors include high cholesterol level, smoking, alcohol, diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity). Even a small blockage of the arteries of the penis can lead to a poor quality erection.

Studies show that 50 to 75% of men with disease of the arteries of the penis, they will also have the early stage of blocked arteries around the heart. Erectile dysfunction may be an important early symptom of heart disease.

Why is it so important sleep is for maintaining male potency?

While we sleep, in our body occurs a kind of "maintenance and repair" of all our cells and tissues, including the genitourinary organs. At night, men have 3-5 "morning" erections (of course, the concept of "morning" conditional), which, as believed, are essential for the health of the tissues in the penis. Moreover, these erections can be associated with any kind of sexual attractant.

A healthy night's sleep has several stages. "Morning" erections occur during the REM phase of sleep (rapid eye movement).

An erection occurs when blood fills the cavernous body of penis. Increased blood flow means greater delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the tissues of the penis. Without this regular flow of tissue may experience a lack of oxygen. Studies show that it may even lead to damage in the layer of tissue and affect the ability of the penis to be hard. In fact, the researchers found that men, which reduces or fades the automatic nocturnal erections, it is harder to maintain an erection in the waking state.

These kinds of problems can be the result of disturbances in the sleep cycle, caused by ingesting sleeping pills or work in the night shift. Men who already have automatic morning erections, contact your family doctor. This is especially important if you have trouble maintaining or getting an erection in the preparation and in the course of sexual intercourse.

The period to the next thrill

After ejaculation the male libido can again reach the summit within a few hours or even several days (individually for everyone). This is the period of sexual rest, the next after ejaculation. It bears the name of the persistent diarrhea phase. Begins this stage with the instant-on and at the same time, the adoption of two types of chemicals – adrenaline and endorphins. The adrenaline causes a narrowing of the blood vessels in the penis, which leads to restriction of blood flow to the muscles of the penis and their reduction. In the meantime, endorphins induce a feeling of calm and euphoria.

Over time, these chemical substances are neutralized and the body begins to produce nitric oxide, which relaxes blood vessels and allows the blood again normally flow to the penis by.

In men of older age refractory phase lasts longer, maybe because that is the beginning of the production of nitric oxide in the body lasts longer.

The refractory phase can vary from one minute for a 16-years and one month for the 80-year-old men. If this phase is extended for a short period of time, then it may be a consequence of depression or a decrease in the level of testosterone. Studies have shown that men with low testosterone often complain that it is difficult to achieve an erection.

Why nerves can spoil the moment?

When a man constantly worried about their sexual "performance", it starts a vicious circle. Fear of failure (failure), it means that place of rest comes stress, which triggers the production of adrenaline, blocking an erection. The more disorders in men, the more he tries to avoid sex, his fear increases and the desire to disappear. Again, lack of desire leads to a decrease in levels of luteinizing hormone (luteotropin, lutropina), known as the hormone, which is essential for the sexual "appetite". The hormone is produced when you have sex, but if you don't have sex, the brain reduces its production, because there is no longer any need in it. This process can take several months or years, but ultimately lead to a reduction in the number of spontaneous erections, which only exacerbate the anxiety of the men. Men of all ages can suffer from fear of failure.

In addition, the lack of sex reduces the access of oxygen to the tissues of the penis, which, in turn, leads to more than a weak erection, which only adds to the problems with potency.

Prostate health and male potency

One in ten men at some stage of life develops prostate cancer. While it may be necessary to remove the prostate or part of it, which may have an impact on sexual health. Therefore, taking care of the prostate gland are very important.

The prostate gland produces up to two-thirds of the seminal fluid that semen consists of sperm. Alone iron will begin to age faster than the body as a whole. This is due to the lack in her of the great vessels. Blood supply happens only through tiny blood vessels, and this means that the fabric is a little gets oxygen and nutrients.

In many men experiencing prostate enlargement (benign prostatic hyperplasia), although it is not clear why this is happening. As a result of the prostate of iron, surrounding the urethra, compresses its, violation of outflow of urine and ejaculation. Part of this enlarged prostate can be removed surgically, but it can lead to damage some of the valves in the urethra, thereby the spurt of semen into the bladder, and not from the body. This process is known as retrograde ejaculation.

Iron is surrounded by two bundles of nerves that are essential to maintaining an erection. If it is iron it turns out the cancer must be removed surgically. When this nerves can be damaged, which affects the sexual function.

priapism in men

Suffering from a long arousal (priapism)

Long-lasting stimulation of the penis may seem happy case, but it's a nightmare for those who suffer from priapism, which occurs when blood cannot drain away due to a blockage in the blood vessels of the penis. The reason is not known exactly. It can occur without any sexual activity, due to leukemia (cancer of the blood leads to a change in shape of the cells from the blood) or from injury to the penis. Most often it is caused by sickle-cell anemia, where red blood cells have the shape of a sickle. This condition causes pain and if not treated quickly, can lead to stagnation of blood and inflammatory processes. May also develop gangrene. It is treated with injections of a drug that helps drain blood from the penis area.

The age-old care man

The vast majority of men have no reason to worry about the size of your penis, because from the medical point of view, the truth, small penis is a penis smaller than 5 cm, which is a very rare case. The average length of the erect penis is 15 cm (from 11.5 to 19 cm). Length medium slow (not erect) penis of 9.5 see

In the process of aging, healthy man the size of his penis may slightly decrease due to changes in blood flow through clogged arteries, while the collagen that helps hold the shape of the tissue, with age becomes less effective. However regular sexual activity can minimize losses in the amount of.
