For Men – 10 Factors That Affect The Health Of Your man-hood.
Various factors can affect man-hood health — some modifiable and some not. They include;
1. Unprotected s*x. You can contract a sexually transmitted infection if you have unprotected s*x.
2. Heart disease and diabetes. Restricted blood flow caused by diabetes and atherosclerosis — hardening of the arteries — can cause erectile dysfunction.
3. Certain medications and treatments. Certain medications and treatments can affect your man-hood health. For example, surgical removal of the prostate gland (radical prostatectomy) and surrounding tissue as treatment for prostate cancer might cause urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction.
4. Smoking. Smoking doubles your risk of erectile dysfunction.
5. Hormone levels. Hormone imbalances, such as testosterone deficiency or too much of the hormone prolactin, have been linked to erectile dysfunction.
6. Psychological problems. Depression can cause a loss of libido. Likewise, if you experience an erection problem, you might be concerned that it’ll happen again — causing anxiety or depression. This can compound the problem and lead to impotence. Trauma — such as child abuse — can lead to pain associated with s*x.
7. Neurological conditions. Stroke, spinal cord and back injuries, multiple sclerosis and dementia can affect the transfer of nerve impulses from the brain to the man-hood, causing erectile dysfunction.
8. Getting older. Testosterone levels decline normally as you age. This might lead to a decrease in s*xual interest, a need for more stimulation to achieve and maintain an erection, a less forceful ejaculation and a need for more time before you can achieve another erection.
9. Piercings. A man-hood piercing can cause skin infections.
10. Aggressive or acrobatic s*x or self service. If your man-hood is bent suddenly or forcefully while erect, the trauma might cause a man-hood fracture. man-hood fractures are rare.
