Treatment of Sexual Disorders
Treatment of Sexual Disorders

more about Treatment of Sexual Disorders


Sexual impotence, which may disrupt normal sexual activity in the middle and latter part of life, needs prompt diagnosis and treatment. The cause may be disease-related or may be a result of the physiological changes occurring during middle age. Diabetes, hardening of the arteries, radical prostatectomy and other surgical procedures within the pelvis, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, high blood pressure, sedatives, drugs for high blood pressure, antidepressants, anti-psychogenic drugs, alcohol and other ingested drugs all are possible causes of sexual impotence. Fear of intercourse, anxiety, anger, depression, and other psychological disorders occurring in middle age may be other factors. Therefore, it is important to be able to pinpoint the exact cause of the problem for proper treatment. A trained professional should make the diagnosis. If the impotence is caused by psychological factors, psychiatric treatment is delivered. If the impotence is due to physical causes-with the exception of hormonal treatments and direct blood vessel surgery-all possible methods of treatment are explained to the patient, and he is allowed to choose the method her prefers.

Oral medications

Viagra has been in the market for some time now. This drug prolongs erection by increasing the level of c-GMP, a substance in the penis that regulates erections. According to recent clinical studies, 40%-80% of Viagra recipients have benefited from Viagra, making it the number one choice by patients as a preliminary cure. Because it is convenient to use (taken orally 1 hour before intercourse), Viagra is likely to be used increasingly by the public. Unfortunately, however, people suffering from heart diseases are prohibited from the use of Viagra, and a doctor's verification of such eligibility is required in its use. Unauthorized use of the drug without proper diagnosis and a prescription can be very dangerous and should be avoided at all cost. However, with proper supervision and care, Viagra can be a very safe and effective measure against impotence.

Blood vessel agonist injections

The most common method of treatment for impotence, agonist injections have few side effects due to localized application directly in the penis (corpus cavernosum) and they can be used regardless of the cause of impotence. If erection occurs after injection, there are no bodily side effects. Finally, the advantages of agonist injections are its ability to preserve the constitution of the penis and the induced erection's similarity to a natural one.

Penal insertion surgery

Insertion surgery is an alternative that can be considered for those who do not have much success with the above technique or find it inconvenient to practice. However, since this surgery precludes further impotence treatments, the patient is advised to weigh the possible outcomes and complications before making a decision. In most cases after surgery, the erect penis is smaller than its natural counterpart. And, if complications, such as inflammation occur, the penile insertion device will have to be removed. The patient satisfaction rate is 90% and is the highest among all available techniques. Depending on the patient's selection, the penile insertion can be one of three types: bending type, inflatable, and automatic inflatable types.

Blood vessel reconstructive surgery

This surgery corrects impotence caused by insufficient blood being supplied to the penis, because the relevant artery is blocked or the outgoing vein is deformed and subject to leakage.
