What Causes Sexual Problems in Men?



Problems maintaining an erection and loss of sexual desire can be caused by a number of factors - medical issues, medications, stress, performance anxiety and relationship issues, to name a few. That's why it's important for men who have difficulty maintaining an erection see a doctor to make sure they're in good health. Are there supplements that can help men with this problem?

Yohimbe comes from the bark of an evergreen tree. Yohimbe bark extract has been used for years as an aphrodisiac to increase sexual desire and as a supplement to help men more easily get and hold an erection. Small studies show yohimbe may be beneficial for this purpose but, as experts point out, larger studies are needed. Yohimbe appears to work by increasing blood flow to the penis. It can have side effects including an increased heart rate and blood pressure. Therefore, supplements that contain yohimbe may not be appropriate for men who have heart disease or high blood pressure. It can also have psychological side effects. Speak to your doctor first before taking this supplement. He or she can give you guidance as to whether yohimbe is right for you. Natural yohimbe bark extract is available as a standalone supplement and as an ingredient in some male enhancement supplements.

L-arginine is another ingredient in some male enhancement supplements. L-arginine is a naturally-occurring amino acid (building block of protein) found in foods that may help men get and hold an erection. It may work by improving blood flow to the penis. Some studies are supportive but more research is needed. L-arginine can interact with some medications. Talk to your doctor before using it, especially if you have a history of medical problems.

A supplement called horny goat weed contains a natural compound that may act similarly to Viagra, a prescription medication used to treat male erection problems. Like Viagra, it appears to increase blood flow to the penis so men can get and maintain an erection longer. Preliminary research looks promising although more human studies are needed. Like other supplements, horny goat weed can interact with other medications and may have side effects. Talk to your doctor before using it or any other sexual well being supplement.
