What is the potential in men: why problems arise and how to prevent them?

It is important for everyone to have good sexual health. Men are very concerned about this factor, because the body's ability to perform sexual intercourse greatly affects their self-esteem and self-confidence. When men have problems in their sex life, they become insecure and irritated.

What is the potential?

Male potential is the ability of the male body to perform sexual intercourse, which will bring pleasure to both sexual partners. A satisfying sex life is essential to a man's development. Many people equate the word "potency" with the term "erection". However, potency is affected not only by erection. For a good sex life, attraction to the opposite sex, the quality and duration of sexual intercourse are important.

Symptoms of low potency in the stronger sex are expressed:

  • weak erection or its complete absence;
  • premature ejaculation;
  • lack of sexual desire;
  • male lethargy.
Impotence is a pathological condition in which the ability of the penis to have an erection is impaired.

Factors that affect male power

Problems with potency may indicate stress, male psychological problems or health problems.

In addition, the following factors negatively affect male power:

  • smoking and alcohol;
  • age;
  • prostatitis and diseases of the cardiovascular system;
  • overweight;
  • some drugs;
  • too much physical activity or lack thereof;
  • relationship with partner.

With age, male sexual power changes. Potency in men aged 60 years and older often declines, this is due to a decrease in testosterone production, atherosclerotic vascular changes and diseases of the endocrine system.

Many men at this age suffer from prostatitis due to a sedentary lifestyle. Decreased potency with prostatitis occurs quite often.

Some men show weak potential even at a young age. A young man has a potential problem as a result of an unhealthy lifestyle, inflammation of the pelvic organs and excessive alcohol consumption. Various hormonal disorders can slow blood flow to the penis.

Men with erectile dysfunction try their best to hide their sexual inadequacy
