Men's Sexual Health

Men have special considerations when being treated for sexual health, such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, delayed ejaculation and inhibited sexual desire.  The conditions can be caused by physical factors, psychological issues, or some combination of both and ALL are treatable.

Erectile Dysfunction

Delayed Ejaculation

Premature Ejaculation

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a disorder or problem involving difficulty obtaining or maintaining an erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual experiences.

While more common in older adults, ED can happen to anyone at any age and is treatable.

Delayed Ejaculation (DE) is when a male can get an erection and have intercourse for a long time, but can’t ejaculate or has persistent difficulty in achieving orgasm despite the presence of normal sexual desire and sexual stimulation.

Premature Ejaculation (PE) is ejaculation that occurs before both partners would like in a majority of sexual encounters, leading to worry, stress, or concern. Premature ejaculation is the most common instance of sexual dysfunction for men under 40 years of age, and recent estimates conclude that up to 1 in 3 sexually active men are affected by the problem to some degree.

The key objectives to seek out sex therapy as it relates to erectile dysfunction, delayed ejaculation and premature ejaculation are to explain ED fully to you in order to reduce your worry related to a lack of knowledge; reassure you that your problems are not unique and that you can overcome them and finally to propose positive action steps that you and your partner can take to help work through the problems.

Some types of problems may include:

• Inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual encounters.
• Anxiety about having sex.
• Reduced sexual arousal and desire

Treatment Depends on the Cause

• Communication is one of the major underlying causes of ED — a thorough review of current patterns of relating will be explored to determine areas needed for improvements.

• Anxiety plays a major role in the development of the problems associated with erectile dysfunction (ED). Psychological and behavioral responses to ED can lead to a vicious cycle of increased uneasiness, distance and conflicts. This in turn leads to a lower frequency of sexual encounters, less time spent together and lack of communication between partners in a relationship. Early childhood experiences can be the root cause of adult sexual dysfunction — sexual history is taken to determine early family patterns of dysfunctional forms of relating.

• Poor physical health and lifestyle choices can inhibit sexual activity — a collaborative assessment will be made to determine needed changes in exercise and nutrition.

Considerations when seeking treatment

• Do you feel a diminished sex drive?
• Do you obtain an erection while sleeping, but not during sexual activity?
• Do you suffer from guilt or performance anxiety such that fear of not

   having an erection becomes distracting or self-fulfilling?
• Are you able to masturbate to sexual satisfaction?
• Is the quality of your relationship impacting your ability to sexually

   connect with your spouse/partner?
• Are you feeling sexually inadequate?
• Do you avoid initiating sexual activity due to shame or embarrassment?
• Has a thorough medical examination ruled out physical issues?
• Are you able to share your performance anxieties with your
