The penis is an organ that a man would want to keep safe and healthy. But remember if you have been too careless with your health it can take a toll on your penis and affect your performance in bed. Here are few health problems that can lead to problems with your organ.
Heart diseases: The risk factors of cardiovascular health and erectile dysfunction are similar. Restricted blood flow to the penis, due to a weak heart can lead to a weak penis and having problems getting an erection. So if you don’t want your sex life to suffer, take care of your heart .
Diabetes: Diabetes and sexual problems go hand-in-hand. In fact people suffering from type II diabetes are more at risk of facing performance issues in bed due to erectile dysfunction as there is less blood flowing to the organ .
Depression: You can’t ignore the fact that mental health and sexual health are very closely related. In fact, men suffering from depression face sexual issues too. A study showed that such men fail to achieve the natural morning erection and their penis seems slightly curved from the tip and is less rigid .
Neurological problems: Suffering from stroke, neck or back injuries also have a similar effect on the penis as reduced circulation and restricted blood flow interfere with most of its normal functioning.
Age: This is something you don’t have total control on. But however, as you age your penis starts to function less effectively – enlarge prostate, erectile dysfunction, problems in urination are just a few things to name.
