What is the treatment for disordered orgasm?

Anorgasmia will be treated with psychiatric help or by treating the underlying cause.

What are other kinds of sexual dysfunction in men?

Another category of sexual problem is sexual pain. A penile lesion, injury, or a skin disease can be the cause among others. Men's sexual pain occurs less frequently than women's.

At what age do men experience sexual dysfunction?

There are normal changes in sexual function in the elderly. Older men can have the following symptoms of sexual dysfunction:

  • Longer delay between stimulation and erection
  • Erection is less turgid
  • Ejaculation is less strong
  • Ejaculatory volume is smaller
  • Time between erections is longer
  • Less sensitivity to tactile stimuli
  • Lower testosterone
  • Orgasm is attained more slowly

These phenomena can be experienced as patients grow old. Nevertheless, it can be addressed so that those affected can still have a very satisfactory sexual life.

What kinds of professionals treat sexual problems in men?

Psychiatrists, psychologists, and sexologists can be involved in the management of sexual dysfunction. Psychiatrists or psychologists can especially help when the cause of the dysfunction is psychogenic. Therapies targeting cognition and behavior usually have good success rates. Sexologists can also contribute to these therapies.

Can sexual problems in men be prevented?

Lifestyle changes can be useful to help treat or improve sexual dysfunction, but more importantly can have an impact before the development of the disease itself. You can prevent the incidence of sexual troubles by having a healthy lifestyle; exercise regularly, eat well, limit alcohol consumption, and quit smoking, if you are a smoker. Lifestyle changes take time and effort, but the results are worthwhile.
