Sexual Dysfunction

The Sexual Dysfunction

Sexual dysfunction is in causes of physical and psychological sexual behaviors. It is painful experience for a man when he has difficulty having or maintaining an erection. This would adversely affect a healthy sex life and could potentially damage a good love relationship with a partner. Men and women of different ages may also suffer from these problems. Impotence alone, they affect around 10% of males. Other issues such as lack of sexual desires, it also affects up to 10-30% of females.



Impotence is also known as Erectile Dysfunction (ED) and is defined as the inability to achieve an erection or maintain an erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual intercourse. This physical problem, in fact, is mainly due to insufficient blood flow to the penis. Erectile dysfunction seems is a very common medical condition with significant consequences. The average age of disease onset is 50 years and the prevalence increases with age. However, any man at any age can also be affected by erectile dysfunction as young as 18-year old have been recorded.


Premature ejaculation

Premature ejaculation (PE) is also known as rapid ejaculation, premature climax, or early ejaculation. PE is a very common male sexual disorder. On average, it affects about one in three men aged 18 to 59 years. It is characterized by a lack of voluntary control over ejaculation. Many men occasionally ejaculate sooner than they or their partner would like during sexual activities. They may ejaculate with minimal sexual stimulation before, on or shortly after penetration. PE can be a very disturbing problem in   sexual life and will affect his partner and their sexual relationship.




Vaginismus is a condition which affects a woman's ability to engage in any form of vaginal penetration, including sexual penetration and insertion of tampons. This is the result of a conditioned reflex of the pubococcygeus muscle, which is sometimes referred to as the 'PC muscle'. The reflex causes the muscles in the vagina to tense suddenly, which makes any kind of vaginal penetration - including sexual penetration - either painful or impossible. Women suffering from severe vaginismus will often describe the feeling as the penis "hitting a wall" when they attempt intercourse.


Inhibited Sexual Desire

Inhibited Sexual Desire (ISD) refers to a low level of sexual desire and interest manifested by a failure to initiate or be responsive to a partner's initiation of sexual activity. The most common cause of ISD seems to be relationship problems wherein one partner does not feel emotionally intimate or close to their mate. Communication problems, lack of affection that is not associated with continuing into sexual; intercourse, power struggles and conflicts, and a lack of time alone together are common factors



CAUSE Sexual dysfunction may be attributed to psychological factors and more in earlier. But in recent years scientific research has proven erectile dysfunction (ED) is caused by physiological or psychological factors, or both and about 80-90% of cases of ED are caused by physiological origin. Stimulation of penile shaft by the nervous system leads to the secretion of nitric oxide (NO), which causes the relaxation of smooth muscles of corpora cavernosa (the main erectile tissue of penis), and subsequently penile erection. Therefore, impotence may develop due to hormonal deficiency, disorders of the neural system, lack of adequate penile blood supply or psychological problems. In addition, regarding to premature ejaculation, most men have learned to masturbate at a young age, but sometimes afraid of being seen, so they will try to settle in rush which will cause rapid ejaculation. Some men are affecting by psychological factors and caused premature ejaculation, such as high expectations on sexuality, anxiety, depression, too excited, too nervous or lack of skills. In conclusion, the cause of most sexual dysfunctions is due to many factors. 


TREATMENTS there are various methods of sexual dysfunction treatments available, but there is no best treatment methods, perhaps a combination of the methods may be prescribed for the best result in according to individual conditions. Non-drug treatment for the cases of premature ejaculation and vaginismus has shown significant effect. Most erectile dysfunction (ED) cases have a physical cause, but counseling can be help couples deal with the emotional effects. Some couples may benefit from joint counseling to address interpersonal issues and communication styles by strengthening relationship. Sometimes, lifestyle of any individuals should be assessed for any potential risk for ED. Doing more exercises, quit smoking, losing weight, and cutting back on alcohol help solve erection problems. In addition, study found that about 80-90% of cases of ED are caused by physiological origin and adequate levels of testosterone (produced by the testes) and an intact pituitary gland are also required for the development of a healthy erectile system. Tongkat Ali can increase the serum level of testosterone tremendously. This has been proven through years of medical studies.
