Male sexual dysfunction-Impotence
Male sexual dysfunction can be devastating not only for the mental and physical health of any man, but also for the overall relationship with his spouse. Male sexual dysfunction could be of following types:
- Inability to achieve erections( Hardness of Penis) Erectile dysfunction ( ED)
- Rapid ejaculation (Premature Ejaculation)
- Inability to ejaculate ( Retarted or Anejaculation)
- Reduced desire to have sexual activity ( Loss of Libido)
Management of Erectile dysfunction (ED) is primarily by using medications like “VIAGRA” (Sildenafil Citrate). However medicines are not a sure shot treatment and a set of patients almost one third to one fourth of all newly diagnosed patients with erectile dysfunction may not respond to the medical treatment alone. This happens particularly in men who have undergone a pelvic surgery (e.g. prostate removal, cancer surgery)and men with Diabetes.
To help men who do not achieve adequate response by the medical management, surgical implantation of silicone devices can be done.
