Erotic Dysfunction

Good sex life of the couple is a decisive factor to maintaining a relationship.

The truth is that over time sexual desire weakens or even disappears. The bad thing is that women often interpret that their partner’s unsatisfactory erection is associated with possible rejection, or that he is bored with them, or that he found someone else or that they are doing something wrong, which, in many cases, leads to creating guilt in their partner.

For sure, women can hide it, but the same is not true for men, as it is immediately visible. This is one reason and it mainly concerns couples who have been together for many years. But an (accident) can happen for many different reasons. Some men, when they enter into a new relationship, they are worried that they may not be able to satisfy their partner.

Another reason for a possible dysfunction is that the man has consumed a lot of alcohol, is a heavy smoker, is overweight, is on medication or has some health problems. Of course, age affects because testosterone levels fall as we grow older, but the main thing is the problems of everyday life and daily stress.

What is certain is that there is no greater fear in a man than feeling that he can not cope during sexual intercourse and there is no greater shame and frustration when this happens even for once.

On the other hand, there are many men who want even more performance and let’s not forget that there is no greater satisfaction and confirmation for a man than to have his partner tell him that he is the only one who made her feel that way.

Many make wishes… I wish this doesn’t happen to me, I wish she likes it, I wish I can satisfy her, I wish I am able to do it one more time…

Alcohol, Drugs affect erection?

Intense alcohol consumption has also been linked to decreased testosterone production. For a long time, large amounts of alcohol can reduce your sexual drive

It is recommended that the average adult man take two or fewer alcoholic beverages daily or no more than 14 units of alcohol per week on a regular basis.

In addition to alcohol, the use of tobacco, marijuana and illicit drugs such as opiates has also been linked to reduced testosterone production. This can lead to a lack of sexual desire.

Weight in the erection low self-esteem

Self-esteem is defined as the general opinion a person has about himself. Low self-esteem and poor body image can affect emotional health and well-being including libido.

 Low self-esteem can also cause anxiety about sexual performance, which can lead to problems with erectile dysfunction and decreased sexual desire.

Over time, self-esteem issues can lead to greater mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety and abuse (alcohol or drugs), which are associated with low libido.

Stress, is the worst enemy of an erection

Stress and exhaustion have been shown to have a significant impact on sexual desire. This is because stress can disrupt your hormone levels such as testosterone. The arteries narrow during times of stress and this diameter reduction restricts blood flow and possibly causes erectile dysfunction.

Stress is difficult to avoid. Relationship problems, divorce, the death of a loved one, financial worries, a new baby or a difficult and demanding work environment are just some of the life events that can significantly affect sexual desire. If you feel constantly tired, stressed or anxious, you may need to make some lifestyle changes or talk to a doctor for advice.

How much do you exercise your sexual desire?

Too little or too much exercise can also be responsible for low sexual drive in men. Minimal or no exercise can lead to a number of health problems that can affect sexual desire and arousal.

Regular exercise can reduce the risk of chronic conditions such as obesity, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes, which are associated with low libido. Moderate exercise is known to lower cortisol levels at night and reduce stress, which can help increase sexual desire.

On the other hand, excessive exercise has also been shown to affect sexual health. Intensive and long-term endurance training on a regular basis has been associated with decreased libido in men.

Sleep apnea and sleep problems affect erectile dysfunction

Non-obese men with obstructive sleep apnea have been found to have lower testosterone levels. This in turn leads to decreased sexual activity and libido.

In another recent study in young, healthy men, testosterone levels dropped by 10 to 15% after a week of restricting sleep to five hours a night. The researchers found that the effects of sleep deprivation on testosterone levels were particularly pronounced between 2:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. the next day.

Erectile dysfunction, a consequence of health problems

Any medical condition can affect sexual desire and libido. For example, a low libido may be associated with:

-Heart disease


-Thyroid disease: – where the thyroid gland does not produce enough hormones


-Major surgery

-Talk to a doctor or specialist if you think your low libido may be the result of an underlying medical condition or treatment.

-Chronic diseases

The existence of chronic diseases such as chronic pain, makes sexual desire quite reduced.

Some chronic diseases, such as cancer, can reduce sperm production while other chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes, obesity, hypertension, high cholesterol, chronic lung, heart, kidney and liver failure can affect libido.

If you have a chronic disease, talk to a sexual health counselor and your partner about ways to deal with the problem.

Depression and Sex Life

People with depression experience a reduced or complete lack of interest in activities that may have been enjoyable in the past, including sexual desire. It is important to see a doctor if you think you may have depression.

They can advise you on the main treatments for depression. Low libido is also a side effect of some antidepressants as mentioned above. In this case, talk to your doctor if you are taking antidepressants and have low libido.

They may treat your side effects by adjusting your dose or changing the treatmen

Medications & Erection

Taking certain medications can lower testosterone levels, which in turn can lead to low libido, inhibition of ejaculation and erectile dysfunction.

Some categories of drugs are listed below:

-medicine for high blood pressure such as ACE inhibitors and beta-blockers

-many types of antidepressants such as selective serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), such as fluoxetine (Prozac) and sertraline (Zoloft)

-medicines for seizures, such as topiramate

-medicines called antipsychotics, such as haloperidol

-drugs for an enlarged prostate, such as finasteride

-drugs for prostate cancer, such as cyproterone (Cyproterone)

In any case of taking medication we should check the booklet that accompanies it to see if in its contraindications low libido is mentioned as a possible side effect.

If we believe that a drug is affecting our sexual drive, we should discuss it with our doctor so that he may suggest a different treatment.

Testosterone the male hormone

Testosterone is one of the most important hormones in men and is mainly produced in the testicles. It is responsible for muscle growth, bone mass and to stimulate sperm production.

Testosterone levels also affect your sexual drive.
Normal testosterone levels vary. Adult males are considered to have low testosterone when its levels fall below 300 nanograms per deciliter (ng / dL), according to the guidelines of the American Urological Association (AUA)

Decreased testosterone is normal with aging.
Decreased testosterone can lead to decreased libido and erectile dysfunction.
