MALE SEXUAL PROBLEMS

Problems getting or maintaining an erection are common as men age. Although the reasons vary somewhat from person to person, it is not unusual for men with diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease to suffer from erectile problems. While exercise and diet can help with these conditions and improve your overall health, there are specific medical and surgical treatments available for men who have difficulty with sexual performance.

FEMALE SEXUAL PROBLEMS

Women also suffer from problems of sexual dysfunction, including loss of interest in sex and pain during intercourse. These problems are also treatable. Many of the treatments available for female sexual problems are medical and do not require surgical procedures.

PROBLEMS HAVING CHILDREN

Approximately 40 percent of couples facing problems with getting pregnant will find that it’s due to the male partner. Hormones and various conditions can contribute to male infertility, and many causes of male infertility can be successfully treated by either medicine, surgery or a combination of therapies.
