Is Your Sexual Life Fine?

Is Your Sexual Life Fine?

Is your sexual life fine? Are you enjoying the act of love with your partner? I don’t think you have answered these questions many times. Have you? Has even your doctor ever asked you about your sexual health? Answer for most men would be NO, because many physicians do not take sexual histories from their patients, unless of course you go to them for infertility related check-up. However, sexual health is not only about infertility or preventing sexually transmitted diseases. It is also about having satisfactory sexual life. Good sex is vital for happy life and successful relationship.

Unfortunately, we do not talk much about our sexual life, not even to our partners. There are many factors that affect our sex life, which includes work pressures, long working hours, frequent travels and family responsibilities. Moreover, there are various medical reasons as well that might keep you away from experiencing sexual pleasures. These factors can be physical or psychological. You need to know these reasons and the cause behind them to treat the problems that affect your sexual life.


Some of the common sexual health issues in men are:

  • Reduced sexual desire
  • Difficulty getting or maintaining an erection (erectile dysfunction)
  • Difficulty with ejaculation or small volumes of fluid ejaculated
  • Pain, swelling or a lump in the testes area
  • Reproductive system disorders
  • Lower than normal sperm count, the condition known as oligospermia (fewer than 15 million sperms per millilitre of semen or a total sperm count of less than 39 million per ejaculate)
  • Sexually transmitted diseases

All these can also be the reasons for inability to conceive.

Next, let us know what can be the cause of these. To know the cause is important because sometimes sexual problems are an indication of an underlying medical disorder. For example, low sexual desire can be an indication of thyroid, depression, low self-esteem, and other problems.


As discussed above, sexual health can be affected by many physical as well as psychological causes. 

Physical causes of overall sexual dysfunction may be:

  • Low testosterone levels, which is the male sexual hormone
  • Prescription drugs like antidepressants and high blood pressure medicine
  • Blood vessel disorders such as atherosclerosis, which means hardening of the arteries; and high blood pressure
  • Stroke or nerve damage due to ailments like diabetes or surgery
  • Smoking
  • Alcoholism and drug abuse
  • Any injury to male reproductive system.

Psychological causes might include:

  • Concern & anxiety about sexual performance
  • Marital or relationship problems affecting sexual life
  • Depression, feelings of guilt
  • Effects of past sexual trauma
  • Work-related stress and anxiety

It is very important to diagnose the cause and treat it appropriately. The problem with most men is that they shy away from discussing sexual problems, even with doctors, especially something like erectile dysfunction or sexually transmitted diseases. This leads to either delay in the treatment leading to further complications that can also affect your relationship with your partner or irreversible damage to your health. So please seek medical opinion and treatment for your sexual health issues.        


Conventional medication for sexual problems in men recommends psychotherapy, and exercise to help increase blood flow and also release of hormones, which act as mood elevators, besides oral drugs and hormonal treatments to correct male sexual disorders. These methods often fail to take care of the cause, the origin of the disorder - besides; they carry the risk of side-effects.

Homeopathy, a natural form of mind/body medicine, is ideally geared to treat and correct many of the underlying predispositions for male sexual disorders. Homeopathic treatment for sexual disorders in men depends upon the manifestation of the disease, along with personality or distinctive characteristics of the individual. It takes into consideration actual symptoms of the disorder along with individual personality traits like lifestyle, body build up, mental makeup and temperament. That is how the homeopathic medicines are able to treat the root cause of the problem and address the problem in its entirety. An added benefit of homeopathic treatment is that it has no side-effects at all.

Besides taking medical help, it is imperative to make certain lifestyle changes to enjoy a happy and healthy sex life. If you’re physically active and do some sort of exercise daily, your chances of recovery are better. Those men who have the habit of smoking or drinking should quit these habits. Eating a natural and balanced diet also helps in maintaining good sexual health.
