Male sexual dysfunction could be a sign of other medical problems

Male sexual health
Urologist Dr. Craig Mamitele looks at male sexual health and other concerns related to the subject.

Male sexual health is often a topic that many men are hesitant to engage in.

Urologist Dr. Craig Mamitele speaks to CapeTalk's Refilwe Moloto and says exploring this topic is important because issues like erectile dysfunction could be a warning sign of other medical problems.

If the blood vessels that are inside your genitalia are starting to get blocked, you won't get a rigid erection that you used to.

Because of the connection of the blood vessels in your brain, eyes, heart and eyes, it is usually an indication that you will either have a stroke, a heart attack, go blind or kidney failure.

Dr. Mamitele explains that a man's sexual function is usually at its peak from the teenage years until age 30. From there it slowly starts to decrease, depending on one's health.

If you continue with unhealthy behaviour like smoking, drinking, uncontrolled high blood pressure and diabetes - the rate of sexual function decline will be much quicker.

Dr Craig Mamitele, Urologist - The Urology Hospital in Pretoria

Mamitele took a couple of questions from listeners who wanted to know more about male sexual health.

He advises that because of the sensitivity of the topic people should be careful when dealing with a person who has sexual issues.

When a man is already having sexual problems the self-esteem goes down. They will basically shy away.
