Conditions and Topics

Anejaculation

Anejaculation is defined as the inability to ejaculate semen; the word itself means “no ejaculation.” With this condition, a man can produce sperm but cannot expel them during normal ejaculation even though he may have normal orgasm sensation.

BPH

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) – an enlarged prostate – is a common condition for older men. According to the American Urological Association, more than half of men have an enlarged prostate by the time they’re 60 years old.

Delayed Ejaculation

Delayed orgasm and delayed ejaculation (also historically referred to as retarded ejaculation) refer to difficulty reaching orgasm (climax) and/or ejaculating even with a firm erection and sufficient sexual arousal and stimulation. 

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) occurs when a consistent inability to get or maintain an erection prevents you from having satisfying sex. A man with ED either loses his erection before intercourse, gets only a partial erection, or gets no erection.

Female Genital Arousal Disorder

Female sexual arousal disorders affect an individual’s mental or genital arousal response. Sometimes, a woman with a sexual arousal disorder may feel mentally turned on, but her body and genitals cannot respond to sexual stimulation

HSDD

Hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) refers to person’s chronic or ongoing lack of interest in sex, to the point of personal or relationship distress. HSDD affects both men and women, however it is most common in women.

Low Testosterone

Testosterone is a hormone made mostly by the testicles in men. It plays an important role in making new red blood cells, increasing muscle mass and strength, enhancing sex drive, maintaining sperm production, and improving bone density.

Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder/Genito-Pelvic Dysesthesia

Persistent genital arousal disorder/genito-pelvic dysesthesia (PGAD/GPD), originally described as persistent sexual arousal syndrome (PSAS).

Peyronie's Disease

Peyronie’s Disease is a condition resulting from scar tissue formation on the penis. The scar, which is often referred to as a “plaque,” develops on the sheath surrounding the vascular erectile tissue within the penile shaft.

Premature Ejaculation

Sexual stimulation (physical) causes nerves in the penis to send chemical messages to the spinal cord and the brain. Similarly, the brain releases chemicals with mental stimulation. 

Prostate Cancer

The prostate is a small, walnut-sized, gland located below your bladder that surrounds your urethra. It produces some of the fluid that makes up semen, the fluid that comes out at the time of ejaculation.

Retrograde Ejaculation

Retrograde ejaculation occurs when semen goes into the bladder instead of leaving the penis during ejaculation. Retrograde ejaculation isn't harmful but it can impair fertility.

Sex After Cancer

Cancer treatment has the potential to drastically affect sexual function. This can occur in a number of ways depending on the type of cancer and method of treatment undertaken.

Spinal Cord Injury

A spinal cord injury (SCI) can have profound effects on a person’s quality of life including fertility and sexual function. Sexuality is an important part of a person’s identity.
