Sexual Problems in Men

(continued)

Can Sexual Problems Be Prevented?

While sexual problems cannot be prevented, dealing with the underlying causes of the dysfunction can help you better understand and cope with the problem when it occurs. There are some things you can do to help maintain good sexual function:

  • Follow your doctor's treatment plan for any medical/health conditions.
  • Limit your alcohol intake.
  • Quit smoking.
  • Deal with any emotional or psychological issues such as stress, depression, and anxiety. Get treatment as needed.
  • Increase communication with your partner.

When Should I Call My Doctor About Sexual Dysfunction?

Many men experience a problem with sexual function from time to time. However, when the problems are persistent, they can cause distress for the man and his partner and have a negative impact on their relationship. If you consistently experience sexual function problems, see your doctor for evaluation and treatment.
