The concern about sexual life is as important as the concern about health. Whether for those who are beginning to have relations or for those who are more experienced, it’s necessary to be aware of some signs to ensure a safe and satisfying sexual relation.
Both physical and psychological aspects can give signs that something isn’t right and needs a solution. Get to know seven signs that your sexual life needs more attention and keep your happiness in first place.
1) When you start avoiding sex with your partner
There are men who are terrified when they are with their partner and realize that the moment is getting more intimate. Usually they suffer from low self-esteem caused by some problems down there, such as penile curvature, erectile dysfunction or insecurity with the size and shape of the penis. Making up excuses for insecurities is not healthy and can jeopardize your life in the long term. In that case, be sure to seek medical help to make a complete assessment and identify where the problem is, if that clearly is not the lack of your desire.
2) Lack of libido
Unlike the situation above, some men avoid having sex because of lack of libido. This is a delicate matter and demands an honest evaluation, without self-deceit. First, consider whether the decrease of the libido has nothing to do with your current relationship with your partner. In this case, my recommendation is the frank and open dialogue between the two parties. But if there is nothing wrong with that, try to do a hormonal assessment to see if everything is in order. The use of some medications, such as antidepressants, can also mess up with the hormones and directly affect your sex life.
3) Painful sexual intercourse
If you feel pain during the sexual act you may have some physical issues in the penis due to young age congenital curvature or even an inflammatory phase of Peyronie’s Disease. In this case, you can start by doing self-examination to check if all goes well with your buddy. Be aware of checking if its curvature doesn’t disturb you, or if there has been any change in size or even if the penis has become thinner. Any problem or alteration in penile anatomy can directly reflect in the quality of sexual intercourse, so it is important to seek medical help when you notice something wrong.
4) When the penis often escapes
It’s not normal for the penis to escape frequently during penetration. This can be a clear symptom of penile curvature problem, which may has been like this since young age or acquired over time. In these situations it’s important not to feel ashamed and seek medical help for a more accurate assessment and diagnosis. Whatever the situation, there is a treatment for it. The faster it is identified, the better and more agile the healing process will be.
5) The penis folds during sexual intercourse
If your penis bends at the time of penetration, it indicates that you may be experiencing some erectile dysfunction problem. In addition to the discomfort caused to both the man and his partner, the lack of stiffness in the penis can develop more serious problems, such as Peyronie’s disease. There are clinical treatments and penile prosthesis implants that solve this problem, however, it is only possible to identify the best form of treatment after an accurate medical evaluation. The patient’s health history should always be taken into account to be sure when a penile prosthesis is indicated.
6) Feeling frustrated after the sexual act
Keep in mind that sexual intercourse should be pleasant, and at the end, the couple should feel satisfied. But if, on the contrary, you end up with a sense of frustration, that’s a negative sign. Besides dialogue between the couple, moments of intimacy and erotization, it is very important to assess whether everything is okay with physical and emotional health. This can directly interfere with your body functioning and sexual performance.
7) Blaming the age
Some people think that older people do not want to or should not have sex. This is a prejudice that must be eliminated right away. Everyone has the right to have a healthy sex life. It is clear that age can present some challenges that must be observed and taken care of. In the case of men, it is more common that problems of erection appear between 40 and 70 years old. But that does not mean that you have become powerless and can no longer have fun with your buddy. Erectile dysfunction can have several causes and there are many forms of treatment that can help you to put your sex life back on the track. It is also important to talk to your partner about women’s problems, such as difficulty maintaining hormonal balance and the reduction of natural lubrication.
So, are you fully satisfied with your sex life? To make sure everything is okay, it is important to check with an urologist on a regular basis.
