Male sexual dysfunction can be devastating not only for the mental and physical health of any man, but also for the overall relationship with his spouse. Male sexual dysfunction could be of following types :
Aging and sexual function in men
- Inability to achieve erections( Hardness of Penis) Erectile dysfunction (ED)
- Rapid ejaculation (Premature Ejaculation)
- Inability to ejaculate ( Retarted or Anejaculation)
- Reduced desire to have sexual activity ( Loss of Libido)
Aging is a natural phenomenon. However the rate of aging and its attendant sequelae vary greatly among different individuals. One of the various problems that are faced by aging men is sexual dysfunction, which is multifactorial in origin. The commonest sexual inadequacy experienced by aging men is erectile dysfunction (ED). ED is increasingly being used as a marker for underlying diseases.
Premature ejaculation (PME) has been a difficult entity to define. WHO definition as follows:
"An inability to delay ejaculation sufficiently to enjoy lovemaking, manifest as Either of the following : occurrence of ejaculation before or very soon after the beginning of intercourse,(if a time limit is required, before or within 15 seconds of the beginning of intercourse);occurrence of ejaculation in the absence of sufficient erection to make intercourse possible".
In other words, it is a condition leading to sexual dissatisfaction due to short duration of intercourse.
