Erectile Dysfunction: What It Is and How Doctors Diagnose It

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, March 26, 2019, In : Men's Health 

Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects many men at different points in their life. While it seems to be discussed ad nauseum, not all men really understand erectile dysfunction. Sure, the common knowledge is that it’s a penis problem and can be easily cured with a little blue pill. However, that’s not the truth of the matter. A lot of times, ED goes deeper into a man’s physical, emotional, and mental health.

Delayed Ejaculation: Handling This Penis Function Issue

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, March 13, 2019, In : Men's Health 

Mention premature ejaculation in a group of guys and someone is almost bound to jokingly claim that he has just the opposite penis health problem. In fact, delayed ejaculation (sometimes called retarded ejaculation or prolonged ejaculation or impaired ejaculation) can be a very legitimate penis function problem – and one that can be frustrating both to those who suffer from it and their sexual partners.

What it is

Just as premature ejaculation involves a man who ejaculates much earlier tha...

Penis Function and Gout Can Be Linked

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, January 10, 2019, In : Men's Health 

It’s no news that we prefer things that work rather than things that don’t work, and so a man is much happier when he is blessed with good penis function rather than faulty penis function. Maintaining a proper level of penis health is one way to help maintain penis function, but sometimes issues arise outside of pen is health which can impact function. For example, health conditions that develop elsewhere in the body may have a secondary effect on the penis. Surprisingly, this can be the...

Guys may do a lot of talking about sexual conquests and the unrelenting prowess of their libido; however, one sexual thing a lot of men won’t talk about is Erectile Dysfunction, also known as ED.

Penis Function Issues: Dealing with Premature Ejaculation

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, December 19, 2018, In : Men's Health 

There are hundreds of reasons to focus on penis health, but one reason why men make it a priority is because a healthy penis is generally in a better position to perform better sexually. Almost every man worries at some point about penis function and how an issue in this area could impact his sex life. One of the more common penis function challenges involves premature ejaculation.

Guys don’t like to talk about premature ejaculation, much less admit that they suffer from it, but it is actu...

Male Organ Function and Medications That Increase Prolactin

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, November 21, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Male organ health and male organ function are often linked, with a healthy manhood usually more likely to have fewer issues with male organ function. However, there can be factors which impede male organ function which come about even when a man is taking every step possible to ensure the health of his favorite organ. For example, sometimes medications taken for health issues unrelated to the member may still have some impact on the manhood. This can be the case with medications which, direc...

Iron Overload Can Impact Penis Function

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, November 17, 2018, In : Men's Health 

When penis health is good, penis function is more likely to be good as well. But sometimes there are conditions which indirectly affect penis function. One such example may occur when a man suffers from iron overload, that is, an excess amount of iron in his system.

Iron is basically good

Now, as any boy who is told to eat his spinach or take his vitamins knows, the body needs iron. In most cases, iron is a good thing. This mineral is an essential component of hemoglobin, which takes iron ou...

Erectile dysfunction: two of the most terrifying words a man can ever hear in connection with his penis health. Yet it’s something which is not uncommon. According to one source, about 10% of men between the ages of 40 and 70 have severe or complete erectile dysfunction, and 25% more have moderate or intermittent cases of it.

Erectile Dysfunction? Maybe Try a Little Watermelon

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, September 25, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Some men may experience better erectile function during the summer months, and there has long been an old wives’ tale that tries to explain the matter. Sure, summertime may just be a period of the year when men feel naturally friskier, or perhaps the exposure to more sunlight and fresh air helps to explain this penis health change. But folk medicine has for centuries encouraged men who have difficulties with their erections to partake of abundantly available watermelon during the summer sea...

Penis Function and Spinal Cord Injury: 3 Types of Problems

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, September 5, 2018, In : Men's Health 

As many readers know, penis health can be a bit complicated. Some of it is easy and directly involves the penis, such as caring for dry penis skin or checking for signs of sexually-transmitted infections. Other times, penis care may relate to parts of the body beyond the organ itself. Such is the case with spinal cord injuries, which have the potential to impact penis health, sometimes significantly.

Demystifying Erectile Dysfunction: How We Study It and How It’s Treated

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, September 4, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Men are fortunate to be living in a world in which our knowledge of sexual health has increased to the point that it has. Gone are the days when, say, treating syphilis required a man to drink dangerous quantities of mercury - with little effect on the disease itself, and certainly to the detriment of the patient! Much of what is now known about proper penis health strategies has come about through centuries of observation and trial and error, but much nowadays is learned through rigorously-...

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, August 10, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Not surprisingly, one of the main issues when it comes to penis health is erectile function (or dysfunction, as the case may be). This is an area in which there is a great degree of interest, and many researchers are looking at various possible factors which might contribute to the development of erectile dysfunction in men.

Erectile Function and Psoriasis: Is There a Connection?

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, July 27, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Penis health maintenance is multi-faceted, meaning that there are many areas a man wants to pay attention to.

Unsatisfactory Penis Function: What Causes Delayed Ejaculation?

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, July 20, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Considering the fact that many men worry about premature ejaculation (and at least 30% of men have experience with this issue), it may come as a surprise that there are some men with the opposite penis function problem - delayed ejaculation.

The human body is a wonder, a complicated organism that is a beautiful machine. Individual body parts are also wonders, including the penis - and not just because of the sheer pleasure the penis provides to its owner (and to partners of the owner).

When a man is spending a lot of time on his bicycle, he’s likely doing what he can to promote his best possible health.

Erectile Dysfunction and the Porn Connection

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, November 13, 2017, In : Men's Health 

Men love to have sex, and if a partner isn’t readily available, a man might just have sex with himself. But in order to do that, many men turn to a virtual partner, the one they find on their computer screen or between the pages of an adult-themed magazine. In fact, taking matters into their own hands is well-known as part of excellent penis care, and most men suffer no penis problems at all from enjoying a little foray into porn from time to time.

But what about those men who suddenly r...

After a robust workout at the gym, nothing feels quite so good as spending a little time in a sauna or steam room. The concentrated heat pouring over the body seeps into the muscles and relaxes them after their exertions and helps a guy wind down. But is there any reason to wonder if using a sauna (or similar options, like a steam room) could have an impact on penis health, and in particular, on penis function? It’s a good question and one which those concerned about their penis should con...

Hyperprolactinemia May Impede Penis Function

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, November 1, 2017, In : Men's Health 

Typically, when a man hears about a problem with penis function, he associates it with an erectile issue or premature ejaculation. However, for some men a penis function issue may be in another area, such as delayed ejaculation. Comprehensive penis care involves treating any issue which may arise, so when delayed ejaculation is a concern, it’s important to know the possible causes. One of these is a relatively rare condition which doctors term hyperprolactinemia.

When Spontaneous Ejaculation Impedes Penis Function

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, October 24, 2017, In : Men's Health 

Premature ejaculation is a concern for many men, but another penis function issue is considerably rarer: spontaneous ejaculation. As the name implies, spontaneous ejaculation is a release of semen which occurs without any physical - and sometimes without any mental - stimulation.

There’s a lot of truth in the old adage "you are what you eat," as it indicates that the food a person consumes has much more of an impact than simply sating the appetite. As surprising as it may seem, diet can indeed have an effect on a guy’s penis health, including his penis function. And since the penis is one part of the body that a man clearly wants to keep functioning at the highest possible level, it’s worth looking at how diet might affect penis function.

One of the major reasons a man devotes time and attention to proper penis care is to reduce the likelihood of erectile dysfunction. Since sexual pleasure and satisfaction tend to revolve around the ability of the penis to attain and maintain an erect state, it’s understandable that erectile dysfunction avoidance is uppermost in a man’s mind. Recently, the internet has been abuzz with a rumor that cat scratches can cause a guy to become impotent. Is this just a rumor, or is there truth in...

Dealing with erectile dysfunction can be one of the most heart-wrenching, frightening issues for a guy. This is especially true if there appears to be no physical cause of the problem.

Benzocaine Wipes Could Aid Penis Function Issue: Premature Ejaculation

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, June 30, 2017, In : Men's Health 

Penis function and penis health are often related, as a healthy penis is more likely to function in a more effective manner. However, sometimes penis function is less a matter of health and more a matter of other physiological or psychological factors. This is often the case with premature ejaculation, a condition of concern to many men. Interestingly enough, a May 2017 presentation at the American Urological Association indicated that there may be help for premature ejaculation from a surpr...

While exceptional penis health is a laudable goal, sometimes a man needs to focus a little less on the superficial health and more on the practical penis function. Very often a penis may seem to be in good health but the penis function may be impacted nevertheless.

It’s the one thing concerning the penis that men don’t like to talk about: erectile dysfunction.

Many men are worried about erectile dysfunction, and go to great pains to ensure top-notch penis care in an effort to avoid the problem. In most cases of erectile dysfunction, there is a physical component; for example, a man might suffer from diabetes, circulation issues or other problems that can be addressed by a physician.

But for some men, there appears to be no physical problem at all - other than the fact that he just can’t get it up when it’s time to get busy. This can be quite...

Few things are as of great a concern to a man as erectile dysfunction, and understandably so. Men take pride in the manner in which their penis operates and when there is a "kink" in the machinery, it can create anxiety.

Erectile dysfunction is an enormous fear of men everywhere, of any age.

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, May 16, 2015, In : Men's Health 

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is commonly thought of as an old man’s problem. While it’s likely more prevalent among those beyond a certain age, many young men are affected by the condition to varying degrees.

An Active Penis Now = An Active Senior Penis

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, March 16, 2015, In : Men's Health 

"Use it or lose it" is a phrase used in many situations, and it's true with sex as well: an active penis tends to be stronger and healthier than an inactive one. A new study gives further proof that practicing proper penis health as a young man can pay off in one's senior years - as well as in one's prime, of course.

Erectile Dysfunction in Young Men - Tips for Coping

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, February 16, 2015, In : Men's Health 

When one hears the phrase, "erectile dysfunction," one likely conjures the image of an older man. However, the condition likely affects more young men than one might think.

There are several causes of sexual dysfunction in men, the many symptoms of which include lack of desire, inability to orgasm, delayed orgasm, premature ejaculation and inability to become erect.

Having trouble in the bedroom? Some men find that they suffer a loss of desire at some point, or, despite their urges, they simply can no longer perform how they used to, or even at all.

Some men may find that their sexual performance undergoes a decline in the winter months. If symptoms of erectile dysfunction (such as weak erection, inability to orgasm or lack of erection) occur primarily in the cold season, the source might be "the winter blues," or seasonal affective disorder.

A vast amount of research has shown that what we eat has a tremendous effect on all aspects of our health and well-being. A diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, healthy fats (yes, you DO need fat), whole grains and legumes can provide most of the nutritional elements we need to function well, both physically and mentally.

Erectile Dysfunction – How to Increase Blood Flow to the Penis

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, October 31, 2014, In : Men's Health 

One of the primary causes of erectile dysfunction is decreased blood flow to the penis. An erection occurs when a rush of blood engorges chambers in the penis called the corpora cavernosa; without healthy blood flow, the penis simply can’t get hard. The impacts of this condition cannot be overstated: A man’s physical and emotional well-being, as well as his relationship health, may be in jeopardy. Whatever the cause, performance problems are a sign of poor penis health that requires diag...

A healthy sex life is important to a man’s overall well-being, but a lot of things can get in the way of it. Although erectile dysfunction is sometimes rooted in an underlying health condition, one of the main culprits behind an unperky pecker is stress.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is often thought of as an age-related problem; unfortunately, men who are a little past their prime may be too quick to dismiss impotence issues as a natural side effect of the aging process.

The Internet has opened up a whole new world of opportunity for men who enjoy a little adult viewing from time to time; but as with anything else, too much of a good thing can lead to unexpected and unwanted consequences. A little porn can be titillating; it can offer a guy an outlet for stress, and it can fill in the gaps when there is no willing partner around.

It also happens automatically, without requiring any deliberate thought or action on the part of the individual - although, of course, a man can work himself into an excited state if he chooses to do so.

Overcoming Loss of Penis Feeling - Rules for Better Sexual Function

The penis is perhaps the most sensitive part of a man’s body. The outer layers of skin cover a fine network of sensory tissue which sends signals of pleasure (and occasionally pain) to the brain, letting the body know that it is time for a sexual response. For the most part, men take the sensitivity down there for granted; it has always been responsive, so why wouldn’t it continue to feel good, barring any dramatic accidents?

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, May 2, 2013, In : Men's Health 

A diagnosis of prostate cancer is frightening, and hundreds of thousands of men each year are forced to face the difficult decision about what to do next. In many cases, men are advised by their doctors to "wait and see" how the disease progresses, and some research indicates that, especially in older men, surgery is not always necessary. Other men choose to be proactive, choosing radiation therapy to attack the cancerous cells. Younger men who still have years of reproductive activity ahead...

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, April 30, 2013, In : Men's Health 

While doing it in the dark may seem more natural to some, the reality is that groping around without the light on can lead to some seriously awkward moments that can easily disrupt the natural progression of activity. On the other hand, a romantically-lit encounter can actually increase the sensuality of the experience, not to mention contributing to a man’s sexual function by catering to the senses. With the right lighting for the mood and a little attention to penis health, men can be pr...

Obesity and Impotence – Understanding the Connection

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, April 25, 2013, In : Men's Health 

In today’s world, there seems to be an ongoing conflict between the need to convince people of the dangers of obesity and the need to let everyone know that they are worthwhile and attractive no matter what. While it is true that a person’s worth is not based on their physical appearance, and body type is not an indicator of humanity, the hard truth is that being overweight is simply not healthy.

Among the negative effects of obesity, one of the most distressing for men is the issue of...

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, April 24, 2013, In : Men's Health 

Erectile dysfunction is generally considered an age-related problem; the common perception is that younger men are primed and ready for action at all times. However, while most men would like to brag about a constant state of readiness, the truth is that daily life often gets in the way, and even the most virile of young men can experience the occasional flop when it comes to bedroom performance.

The benefits of exercise and maintaining a healthy lifestyle are clear, and most people are aware, at least in theory, that physical activity is an important factor in overall health.

As most men know, regular physical exams are important to staying healthy, identifying potential health risks, and minimizing the chances of developing a serious or chronic illness.

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, April 9, 2013, In : Men's Health

Penis Performance Boosters – Fire it Up with L-Arginine

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, April 6, 2013, In : Men's Health 

A piece of fried chicken served with a glass of milk can supply men with L-arginine, an enzyme that's considered vital for penis health. However, that chicken dinner must take a long and tortured course through the body before it reaches the organ in question, and sometimes, the body spends its L-arginine quota before it ever reaches the penis, leaving the penile tissues starving for the nutrition they need. As a result, supplementation can be considered an important part of a man's penis p...

Penis Function and Alcohol – The Truth about Drinking and Shrinking

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, March 26, 2013, In : Men's Health 

Throughout the Western world, and particularly in the United States, alcohol is the social lubricant of choice. In a deeply-ingrained drinking culture, sharing a few drinks on a date or at a social gathering is a firmly-entrenched ritual. A glass or two of wine, a couple of beers or a cocktail can help both parties to feel more confident, allowing physical encounters to develop as inhibitions are lowered. However, as most men know, there can be too much of a good thing when it comes to drink...

Penis Function- Exploring the Link with Mental Health

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, March 18, 2013, In : Men's Health 

It makes sense that maintaining a healthy diet, exercising regularly and taking care of the penis should leave it primed for perfect function. However, even the most well-cared-for penis is still attached to a brain, and men who are experiencing emotional problems or other mental health issues might also experience difficulties with penis function.

Erectile Dysfunction – When the Problem is all in the Head

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, March 11, 2013, In : Men's Health 

When things go awry in the bedroom for a man, the problem is often attributed to the physical health of the penis. While it is true that conditions such as blood pressure, diabetes, heart health or other problems with the plumbing can contribute to a less than Oscar-worthy performance between the sheets, there may also be psychological factors at play. Psychological factors account for about 10-20% of all cases of erectile dysfunction. Additionally, some problems that originate as a one-time...

Problems with penis malfunction are no laughing matter, and sometimes they are a symptom of an underlying health problem. One such condition, which affects both a man’s physical and sexual health, is type 2 diabetes. It is extremely important for men with diabetes to manage the condition, as out of control blood sugar can be quite detrimental below the belt.

Penis Care Essentials - Hints for Growing a Healthy Erection

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, March 7, 2013, In : Men's Health 

An erect penis is a force to be reckoned with, and it's reasonable for men to compare notes and wonder if the tool they've been given measures up to the equipment of other guys. But if an erection is the yardstick by which men are measured, the judging can get tricky, as erections can look vastly different, depending on a man's anatomical gifts, hereditary tendencies and penis care techniques.

Almost all men fall flat on their performance from time to time. One beer too many, a long day at work or anxiety about the kids bursting into the bedroom at the wrong moment can cause a lackluster showing from any man, at any age.

Getting an Erection – The Ins and Outs of Penis Function

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, March 5, 2013, In : Men's Health 

The penis is a remarkable feat of engineering. One moment, it's soft and flat, and seconds later, it's standing out from the body and throbbing with sensation. When the stimulation has passed, it returns to its soft state once more as though nothing had happened. As many an embarrassed teen knows all too well, an erection comes on whether a man wants it or not, and much of the process is outside of a man's sphere of control. But knowing how the penis works could help men know their bodies ju...

Sex Drive and Men’s Health – Lifestyle Choices that Affect Penis Function

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, February 26, 2013, In : Men's Health 

While most men would like to think of themselves as a smoldering fire just waiting for the right invitation to burst into flame, the truth - as even many younger men are aware - is that the fire is prone to fizzle from time to time, leaving them feeling embarrassed and unsatisfied. Lack of sex drive can have a negative effect on a man’s self-esteem, as well as causing problems in his intimate relationships, as women are often likely to blame themselves for his apparent lack of interest.

Many men believe erectile dysfunction is a problem that only occurs in older men, but those who do will need to rethink this assumption. A man under 30 - even some as young as 20 - can experience the same problems down under as a man 65 or older. Erectile dysfunction is estimated to plague as many as 15 to 30 million men in the United States. While it’s true that men over 65 are more likely to have erectile dysfunction, many young bucks have had the very same problems in the bedroom. Ther...

At one time or another, most men are likely to run into problems with impotence - even younger men may have erectile issues once in a while. For men who are otherwise healthy, an unresponsive penis can be an embarrassment and an inconvenience; but for men who are affected by diabetes, loss of erectile function can be a chronic problem.

Penis Health Facts – A Nutrient Boost for Sexual Function

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, February 20, 2013, In : Men's Health 

The penis is a complex organ - perhaps more so than most people give it credit for. And just like the other vital organs in the body, the penis needs to be cared for on a daily basis. The penis is powered by a system of arteries that allows blood to engorge the manhood, leading to an erection, which is, of course, necessary for sex. Any breakdown in this system can lead to a sluggish penis - and, perhaps, an equally sluggish love life.

As a general rule, what’s good for the heart is good...

TLC For The Penis - Self-Care After Adult Circumcision

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, January 17, 2013, In : Men’s Issues 
A surgical procedure to remove the foreskin (the skin covering the end of the penis), circumcision is a religious rite or a ceremonial tradition in many cultures. Circumcision has been in the news lately, because some people think the practice is painful and risky. However, most doctors believe that people who have been circumcised as infants are comfortable with the choices their parents made for them and have no regrets. On the other hand, adult males may also choose to have the foreskin re...

Natural Help For Erectile Function - The Importance Of L-Arginine

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, January 11, 2013, In : Men’s Issues 
L-arginine is an amino acid that the body uses to make nitric oxide (NO), which plays a role in the development of an erection. Raising a man’s NO level can improve his sexual health by causing a relaxation of blood vessels through a process called a vasodilation, stimulating a greater blood flow through the penis. While the body produces some L-arginine on its own, it can be found in certain nuts or administered in the form of supplements. Using L-arginine can improve penis function, accor...

Bike Commuters: Improper Technique And Poor Seats May Lead To Erectile Dysfunction

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, December 8, 2012, In : Men’s Issues 
Bicycles aren't just for kids anymore. As consumers look for ways to cut costs and reduce their carbon footprints, they're hitting the open road on their bikes and leaving their gas-guzzling cars in the driveway. A quick commute on a bike can cost a rider nothing at all, and the buzz from the workout could help that commuter focus at work and perhaps handle day-to-day stresses just a little bit better. It all sounds ideal, but men who ride their bikes for more than three hours per week, resea...
