There are all sorts of health problems which affect people the world over. Many of the most common ones are easy
to talk about, and people have no trouble visiting a doctor about the condition. However, with some types of health
issues, there may be more embarrassment involved. One main area of potentially embarrassing health problems is sexual health. Unfortunately, many people find that it
is difficult to talk about sexual health. This can be the case for people of all ages, although it may apply in
particular to teenagers and young adults. Data suggests that men, in particular, have more trouble talking about
such issues. However, in truth there is nothing to be embarrassed about. These problems affect people the world
over. Let’s have a look at some of the most common ones, as well as their underlying causes.

This is a common experience for men worldwide. Premature ejaculation is when a man ejaculates earlier than expected during sex. A lot of
mixed messages are put out there about premature ejaculation - the fact is, it is a real medical condition which
affects men of all ages. There are many potential causes of premature ejaculation. Some of those causes are
physical, such as particularly sensitive nerve endings on the head of the penis. Otherwise, it might be caused
by one or more of various psychological factors. For example, if a man is anxious about their ‘performance’ in
bed, then this might cause them to ejaculate prematurely. Nonetheless, there are solutions to this problem. One
common one is to have sex again soon after ejaculation - the second time around, it is likely to take much
longer. Alternatively, asking your doctor for help can provide you with numerous options for the future.
Erectile dysfunction is when a man cannot get, or retain, an erection for a length of time. Despite what you may
have heard about it, erectile dysfunction can affect men of all ages. It is, however, slightly more common in men
over the age of fifty. There are numerous possible erectile dysfunction causes, along a huge range of issues. As with premature ejaculation,
causes can be both physical and psychological. Some of the physical causes might include the penis not receiving
messages from the brain. The psychological causes are known to be more common among younger men, as one might
expect. Experiences such as so-called ‘first-night nerves’ can cause any man to experience erectile dysfunction.
Sometimes, enacting simple lifestyle changes can improve the condition, such as stopping smoking. However, it
can also be more complex.

Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome
Finally, we come onto one of the lesser known sexual health problems. However, while being lesser known, it is
nonetheless still very common. This condition, also known as hypogonadism, can have a significantly negative effect on a person’s life. It can affect one’s
sex drive, as well as their energy level and even their mood. Having a deficiency of testosterone can cause
other sexual problems such as those discussed above. This is a serious syndrome which requires medical
assistance. However, sometimes low testosterone levels doesn’t affect a man’s life too much, in which case it
may be best left alone.
