Loss of Sexual Desire in Men: Three Ways to Get Back on Track; Dr. Daniel Watter Examines Varied Causes of Loss of Sexual Desire and Offers Tips for Action


Parsippany, NJ (PRWEB) June 26, 2013

Loss of sexual desire is less common in men than it is in women. It occurs in about 15% of men compared to about 30% of women. But for those men who do have low libido it often bothers them more than it does women. Men’s feelings about themselves and their masculinity are very closely tied to their sexuality, says Dr. Daniel Watter, a specialist in treating sexual dysfunction and marital/relationship issues with The Morris Psychological Group in Parsippany, NJ, and decreased sex drive can be deeply unsettling. In one study, 46% of women with low libido reported overall satisfaction with their lives. Only half as many men 23% were happy with their lives in general when their interest in sex declined.

What constitutes low sex drive?

As with many human traits, sex drive varies widely. And even within successful committed relationships, there are times when there is a mismatch in interest between partners. The assessment of low sex drive is not based solely on frequency of sexual intimacy but on how the individual feels about it both before and after. If over a period of weeks or months a man does not look forward to and fantasize about sex with his partner, if the act does not foster feelings of closeness and intimacy and, most important, if either he or his partner is unhappy about his lack of interest, it is time to recognize and address the problem before it does serious damage to the relationship.

What can be done about loss of sexual desire? Tips for Action.

There is no single remedy for low libido, says Dr. Watter, but men don’t have to live with it. The first step toward a solution is to identify the cause of the problem for a given individual. Causes fall into three general categories: biological, emotional and relationship-based. Dr. Watter recommends these approaches:

1. See your doctor: A wide range of medical conditions and medications can adversely affect libido. Any serious illness is likely to reduce interest in sex and conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and hypertension can reduce blood flow throughout the body, impeding arousal. Disorders of the thyroid and pituitary glands, which control hormone production, can also diminish libido. The drugs known as SSRIs, commonly prescribed for depression, affect sex drive as do some tranquilizers and blood pressure medications. Excessive use of alcohol and illicit drugs also dampen interest.

Testosterone is the hormone most closely linked to libido and low testosterone levels usually correlate to diminished sexual desire. Testosterone levels drop with age and some young men have low testosterone as well. But Dr. Watter is wary of widespread use of testosterone replacement. Some studies have shown an increased risk of heart disease with testosterone therapy, he says. It is important for men to discuss testosterone replacement with their medical doctors.

2. Reduce stress: Everyday worries about a job, finances, children and relationships can cause anxiety and diminished self-esteem, which can wreak havoc with the libido, says Dr. Watter. An honest effort by both partners to face the issue and make lifestyle adjustments may be all that’s needed. For more serious psychological disturbances, such as depressive disorders or a history of sexual abuse or a dysfunctional family environment, professional help may be needed.

3. Rekindle the relationship: Problems in the bedroom may or may not be indicative of larger problems in the relationship. If an honest assessment concludes that both partners are happy overall, says Dr. Watter, there is no shortage of advice on how to regain the feelings of emotional closeness that lead to heightened intimacy and sexual satisfaction. Consultation with a mental health professional is often necessary to unblock the obstacles that interfere with connecting.

It’s important to recognize that loss of libido and erectile dysfunction are not the same thing, says Dr, Watter, but they are often linked. Men with ED generally have normal sex drive but impaired ability to get or maintain an erection due to psychological, circulatory or nerve problems. Men with loss of libido have no erectile difficulty once aroused but their interest is diminished. However, experiencing repeated instances of ED can cause anxiety that may cause a man to shut down his libido to avoid the problem. Many cases of ED can be treated with medications such as Viagra and Cialis, says Dr. Watter, which can restore a man’s confidence and his libido with it. However, many times the psychological causes of ED will need to be addressed in addition to adding medication.

The myth about men’s sexuality that they are ready to have sex at any time in any circumstances just isn’t true for most men, Dr. Watter concludes. But it is almost always the case that the root cause of loss of sexual desire can be identified and overcome. Sometimes the best solution is to seek professional help. If medical issues have been eliminated as the cause, psychological counseling or sex therapy, either for the individual or the couple, can restore the emotional connectedness needed for a successful physical relationship.

BPH Drugs Can Cause Different Problems: Impotence, Dizziness, Breast Growth, While Dr. Allens Device Treats Prostate Naturally, Reports Fine Treatment


London, Great Britain (PRWEB) July 14, 2013

Medication used to treat prostate enlargement may lead to enlarged breasts, highlights a recent article Causes and treatment of male breasts published in Business Daily on June 27, 2013. Different complications arising from mainstream prostate enlargement treatment options, such as medications and surgeries, can be avoided by using natural Dr. Allens Device for Prostate Care which treats prostate gland locally by improving blood circulation at the capillary level, Fine Treatment reveals.

The symptoms of prostate enlargement usually worsen the quality of life of men in their 60s and 70s. Men can pretty much self-diagnose prostate enlargement, says Dr. John Burgers, a Riverside Methodist Hospital urologist, quoted in a recent article, 1 in 4 men affected by benign prostate problem in The Columbus Dispatch, dated June 30, 2013. He adds, Theyll know the bathroom stops on common routes. Theyll have to urinate the minute they finish a cup of coffee.

Regarding the side effects of BPH medication, Dr. Burgers explains, Alpha blockers sometimes cause dizziness, a stuffy nose and retrograde ejaculation. Another class of drugs called 5 alpha reductase inhibitors (Avodart is one) work more slowly, over months, shrinking the prostate by preventing hormonal changes. Men who take these might have sexual side effects, including impotence and a lower libido. For that reason, patients typically start with the alpha blockers.

Treatment of chronic diseases through Dr. Allens Device: An interview with Professor Ivan G. Aghajanyan published by Panorama.am reviews the effectiveness of the Thermobalancing therapy with regards to urological problems: When there are no malignant processes or other deficiencies, the use of Dr. Allens Device may well be appropriate. We have already started testing the efficacy of Dr. Allens device on 10 of our patients. I should note Im using it myself, says a leading urologist Professor of Medicine Aghajanyan.

A short informative video on the treatment with Dr. Allens Device can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5xidswhxJM.

Surgical prostate treatment options can break a mans life. Mens-Health Forum on Retrograde Ejaculation after Prostate Surgery is full of devastating experiences. For example, a post of 25 June 2011 says, Do not get laser prostate surgery if you still enjoy having sex, you will not afterwards they dont tell you everything!

A mans well-being can be impaired by inevitable complications arising from long-term BPH medications and surgeries, comments Dr. Simon Allen. The side-effects-free Dr. Allens therapeutic device is able to terminate BPH, helping men to avoid complications from pills and prostate surgery.

About Dr. Simon Allen and Fine Treatment:

Dr. Simon Allen, MD, PhD, is a highly experienced medical professional. His specialty is in the internal medicine. He has treated a wide range of chronic diseases, including patients after a heart attack, with kidneys problems, including kidney stones disease, prostate and spine conditions, as well as metabolic disorders.

Clockwise, from left: my favorite Fossil purse; a pile of receipts from the grocery store; underpants, shorts and wipes for my recently potty-trained son; a ribbon of unknown origin; Dramamine; my husband's necktie, my sunglasses and a wiper thing; a pouch with personal items; lipsticks; chapsticks; eyedrops (it gets dusty here); a pen that I can NEVER find when I need; a handful of photos of family; a tiny green truck; my phone (ok, that's just the case, I used the phone to take this photo); a bundle of business cards from the doctor's office, my husband's office and my eldest son's school; the brown and purple wallet that I don't really love but haven't gotten around to replacing; several photo id cards (civil identity card, Kuwait driver's license, Idaho Driver's license (with an AWESOME picture), private medical insurance card, government medical insurance card);  Kuwaiti fils (the coins) and dinars (the notes). In the center you can see two sets of keys with my Ron Weasley Lego keychain (Weasley is our king!); a small piece of beach glass for my collection; a black bat ring from Halloween and a pink plastic ring from my daughter's bling collection; an inordinate amount of sanitzing hand wipes and hand sanitizer; two packs of TERRIBLE chewing gum that a cashier recently gave me as change when he didn't have any small coins; and a string of prize coupons from a local fun place and the cards from the same.
Not pictured: several handfuls of sand and crumbs, a wad of chewing gum in a piece of tissue, twenty-thousand smaller receipts, twenty-two thousand identity cards for the children and tissue (because no matter how many packs of tissue I put in, there is never any in my purse when my kids have got drippy noses.)

Nighttime - soap opera

Name: Audrey
Location: Curitiba, Brazil

                Carrossel is a mexican soap opera I watched (dubbed in Portuguese) when I was a kid in 1991 and that has been rewritten and retaped (with Brazilian actors now) by a Brazilian TV channel since last year. Now my daugther watches it every night and she loves it. It is about a loving teacher (professora Helena) that goes way beyond the classroom to teach good virtues to her kids in the most different, dramatic, fiction filled ways. Don't tell anyone but we cried when professora Helena left the school for a better paying job. Of course she returned to her old job about 10 chapters later...
                It really can be cute and I must admit I have learned to enjoy wathcing it again. It is on every night at 8:30 pm and she (we) can´t miss it. So, like every good Brazilian, our nighttimes include soap opera watching. But at least this is a 'good', decent one.

Something that is consistent around our house at nighttime is reading. We always read before bedtime. Regular trips to the library to get large stacks of books keeps it new and fun!
