Priapism and Impotence

Priapism is a condition wherein a man experiences penile erection without sexual stimulation for an extended time. The erection may last a few hours or even days. In addition to being embarrassing and inconvenient, priapism is often painful and it can result in extensive tissue damage to the penis, as well as long-term impotence if not treated promptly.

Fortunately, it is uncommon compared to other forms of sexual dysfunction, and many men can return to normal sex lives after receiving proper treatment.

In general, priapism results from a disturbance to the mechanisms that control penile detumescence (the process by which the penis becomes flaccid). Blood enters the penis, but it cannot drain properly because it becomes trapped in the corpora cavernosa, a large chamber in the penis. The penis glans (head) and area around the urethra, however, remain flaccid.

Impotency and Bicycling

Does bicycling cause impotence? There is much debate on this question among both doctors and cycling enthusiasts. As with many medical issues, there really isn’t a clear-cut answer. Most experts, however, agree there seems to be a causal connection between bicycling and impotence, though they may disagree on the extent to which this exists.

Of course bicycle accidents are a concern for any rider, as falling down hard onto the bike’s top tube can lead to priapism and impotence. But how about cycling itself? The general consensus is that while your average weekend cyclist need not be over-worried, serious riders, competitors and those who already have impotence problems should definitely take steps to minimize the damages that may occur from long-distance riding.

If you think about the mechanics and physiology associated with cycling, this advice makes sense. The sport has numerous cardiovascular and other health benefits, but the problem is that riding on a narrow, firm seat puts tremendous pressure on the perineum. This is the area under the penis and the vagina, and it contains crucial arteries responsible for bringing blood to the sex organs.

Cialis is one such drug that subdues the erectile dysfunction disorder for that short period of time i.e. during the effectiveness of the drug.

How Long is Long Enough?

Open and honest sex talk has always been obscure among men. With locker room braggarts it’s no wonder that men sometimes have performance anxiety. Sure, they’ll divulge how many partners they’ve had, and a myriad of other spectacular bedroom stunts they’ve pulled off, but there is no guarantee that they’re telling the truth. Many men believe that good lovers last 20-60 minutes.

The truth is that the average man lasts 3-4 minutes once inserted. According to Kinsey’s findings 17.6% of men last less than 2 minutes and 47.6% last between 2 and 5 minutes once inserted.

Impotence – What Is It?

Impotence is the consistent inability to sustain an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse. The term “erectile dysfunction” is often used by health care professionals to describe this disorder and to differentiate it from other problems that interfere with sexual intercourse, such as lack of sexual desire. Every man at some point in his life displays symptoms of impotence in varying degrees.

Health care professionals agree, that cases of impotence are often linked to psychological issues. No man is, in principal, impotent. However, embarrassment, fear, anxiety, ignorance and a lack of information may cause a man to feel inadequate and a non-performer. The couple may experience serious emotional reactions and difficulties which may have the unfortunate consequences of withdrawal and isolation from each other.

Alcoholism and Impotence

Be honest with yourself – do you know or even suspect that you have a problem with alcohol? If so, you’re certainly not alone. Affecting millions of people worldwide, the health, social and economic ramifications of alcoholism are staggering. While it goes beyond our scope here to examine these ramifications in depth, you should be aware that excessive drinking could have serious consequences on your sex life.

Alcoholism is a chronic illness marked by the uncontrolled consumption of alcohol, which is essentially a depressant that reduces tension, anxiety, inhibitions and overall body activity. A type of drug dependence, alcoholism causes physical and psychological problems that often lead to impotence. So if you are experiencing erectile dysfunction (ED), you need to ask yourself whether or not alcohol may be the root of the problem. If it is, then you can kill two birds with one stone – get rid of the drinking and there is a great chance you’ll get back your sexual vitality.

Diabetes and Erectile Dysfunction

Diabetes with erectile dysfunction is a chronic diseases associated with aging. More than 25 million Americans may have this very serious disease. Many do not know they affected because they have not yet had symptoms. In most cases, there are no obvious feelings or signs until the blood glucose gradually increases to become high enough to cause fatigue, increased thirst and urination, blurred vision, weight loss, and eventually serious illness.

The actual cause of diabetes (the body fails to produce sufficient insulin to metabolize food properly) is not known. Excellent treatment that can control the symptoms is nowadays available. The best way to prevent diabetes and its complications is a yearly blood glucose control in persons over age 45. A simple blood test for glucose can tell if you are diabetic. The diagnosis of diabetes is made when blood glucose is greater than 126 mg/dl on two rate testing .

Impotence Treatment

How is Impotence Treated

Most physicians suggest that treatments for impotence proceed along a path moving from least invasive to most invasive. This means cutting back on any harmful drugs is considered first. Psychotherapy and behavior modifications are considered next, followed by vacuum devices, oral drugs, locally injected drugs, and surgically implanted devices (and, in rare cases, surgery involving veins or arteries).

Psychotherapy

Experts often treat psychologically based impotence using techniques that decrease anxiety associated with intercourse. The patient’s partner can help apply the techniques, which include gradual development of intimacy and stimulation. Such techniques also can help relieve anxiety when physical impotence is being treated.
