Understanding Erectile Dysfunction and Orgasm

Unlike in the past, the number of men with sexual problems continues to rise. The rise in numbers can be attributed to several factors including physical injury to the pelvic region, poor diet lacking in vital minerals, long-term use of certain medications, disease/health conditions and poor lifestyle among other factors. While some men with erectile dysfunction gather the courage to consult their doctors, there are those who keep their sexual problems to themselves for fear of stigmatization and rejection.

Apart from those men that consult their doctors, the increase in the number of men with erectile dysfunction problems is evident in the number of sex enhancing medications sold in the market. Sales volume of such medications as Viagra and Cialis has and continues to rise as men who fail to consult their doctors resort to using the same to improve on their poor sex life. These are the men who have to contend with such ED problems as weak penile erection, lack of erection, prolonged erection, delayed ejaculation or premature ejaculation.

One critical issue that doctors treating men with erectile dysfunction problems have failed to address is anorgasmia. This is the inability for a man to reach orgasm in the course of sexual performance. Doctors have largely focused in treating ED without appreciating the fact that men who present themselves with the problem may be suffering anorgasmia. Simply put, orgasm is the intense feeling of pleasure a man experiences during sexual performance. Characterized by rapid body muscle movements, it is the attainment of orgasm that results in ejaculation.

Because erectile dysfunction manifests itself in many ways, it is not surprising to find a man capable of achieving strong penile erection necessary for sexual performance but fail to attain to reach climax. Although such a man’s sexual partner may sexually be satisfied at the end of performance, the man is left unsatisfied because of his inability to reach climax.

From the foregoing, it becomes clear that ED impacts negatively on a man’s ability to reach climax during sexual performance. A man who fails to reach climax during sexual performance may not only suffer from such inability. It can be worse in case of a married man because it is from attainment of orgasm and ejaculation that a man is able to plant is seed in a woman for pregnancy to occur. It is therefore very important that men with ED problems open up when they visit their doctors.

All is however not lost for men incapable of reaching sexual climax. Doctors have now made it a standard practice to delve deeper to understand any other sexual problems men presenting ED problems suffer. It is therefore upon men with ED problems to indicate to their doctors such other problems as inability to attain orgasm even when they attain penile erection in order to receive the necessary treatment.

Medical researchers have not been left out either. In a study report presented at American Urological Association in Atlanta, researchers from Baylor College of Medicine have established that men who suffer anorgasmia can benefit from use of Cabergoline, a drug that is capable of restoring attainment of normal orgasm. The drug acts on the basis that the level of prolactin hormone in the bloodstream increases once a man attains orgasm and ejaculates. The drug therefore lowers level of the hormone in the bloodstream. The drug can therefore provide men suffering from anorgasmia some relief.
