Miami Center for Prostate Health-a center of academic excellence
Recently it seems that in the world of advertising, television, and movies that we are constantly bombarded by a world filled with sex. The messages may leave us with the continual pressure to perform well in bed. However, having a satisfying sex life is not always as simple as it seems. While most people often think of love, affection, and physical intimacy when thinking about good sexual health, if the body is not able to function normally, both partners in the relationship are affected. Understanding sexual health, it’s problems and being aware of sexual function is vital to achieving a fulfilling sex life. Talking openly about sexual issues may be uncomfortable at first, but one should be open, honest and forthcoming with both their doctor and their partner about any concerns they are having.
Certain physical changes such as aging, weight gain, and underlying illnesses such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or depression can affect your ability to perform. Taking certain medications can also be detrimental to sexual well being. Other issues which may affect sexual performance include low desire, low testosterone, or poor blood flow or circulation.
The benefits of a healthy, happy, sex life are many including increased endurance, increased energy level and overall feelings of an improvement in the quality of life. If you or someone you know is interested in improving their sexual health and performance, contact Miami Center for Prostate Health for a consultation. Our experienced physicians can help customize a helpful treatment plan for you.
