The following are some of the conditions that are believed to be the biggest culprit in creating sexual problems.

Penile anatomy and radiation therapy for men

Penile anatomy and radiation therapy for men: Erectile Dysfunction

Doses greater than 20 Gy (2000 rads) are frequently associated with large vessel injury meaning that, patients being treated with radiation for prostate cancer are receiving in excess of 70Gy. The wider the field of radiation, the less likely are blood vessels to recover. Given that the erection (cavernosal) artery is the only artery giving rise to erection, radiation exposure to this system may severely limit blood flow into the penis. It is therefore necessary that when you have been taken through this treatment procedure, you will need to seek medical help from the erectile dysfunction experts. And that is where doctor Dalal Akoury an experienced medical professional in this line for more than two decades now comes in. Calling her for appointment will be the starting point and upon evaluating your condition in private and confidence she will administer the correct treatment which will leave you well, comfortable and full of fulfilled sex life again. You may have not known and so it is essential to understand the penile anatomy and how it relates to the prostate gland even as you consider this type of treatment “radiation therapy”.

  • The prostate gland sits above a band of muscle (urogenital diaphragm) and it is separated from the back portion of the erectile body (crus) only by a distance of less than one centimeter.
  • The urethra (urine channel) passes between the two erectile bodies into the bladder and as it does this it is known as the bulb of the penis.
  • It is important to understand that the bulb plays little if any role in the development of or maintaining erectile firmness and it is the tissue within the true erectile bodies (corpora cavernosa), which when damaged leads to erectile dysfunction.

Penile anatomy and radiation therapy for men: Radiation in the pelvis area

Various studies have established that during 3D conformal x-ray therapy a significant dose of radiation is delivered to the back portion of the erectile bodies that is about 30% of the entire dose of radiation received by the prostate. Radiation therapy in the pelvis area of men can cause ED in 3 possible ways:

  • Arterial damage may block blood flow or damage the lining of the blood vessels that carry blood to the penis
  • Nerves in the pelvic area may become permanently damaged
  • Erectile tissue may be damaged, reducing blood flow to the penis or causing leakage of blood from erectile tissue (venous leak) during an erection

Some of the sexual side effects after radiation therapy may include the following:

  • Inability to achieve or maintain an erection (erectile dysfunction)
  • Weaker, less satisfying orgasms
  • Pain during ejaculation (although this usually goes away within weeks)
  • Dry orgasm or retrograde ejaculation (orgasm without the discharge of semen)
  • Less semen ejaculated

The technicalities and emotional pains involved when one is suffering from erectile dysfunctions must not be allowed to frustrate your relationship or your sex life. That is why doctor Dalal Akoury an expert in this discipline founded AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center to help you redeem your sex life. All your concerns will be address in confidence and with utmost professionalism if only you can schedule an appointment with doctor Akoury today.

Sighting obesity as one cause of erectile dysfunction: What should you do when it happens?

The epidemic of obesity has been linked to erectile dysfunction by medics the world over, a condition which decreases the quality of life of more than 30 million middle-aged men in the United States alone. This connection has been shown in many epidemiological studies where obese people often register a high frequency of difficulty with sexual activities. Such studies have established that men with increased Body Mass Index have a higher risk of erectile dysfunction (ED) than men with normal weight hence the reasons for sighting obesity as one of the causes of ED. Besides that, and quite interestingly, 4 out of 5 people who report symptoms of ED are also overweight or obese. It is estimated that the sexual dysfunction of a morbidly obese man is the same as a normal weight man 20 years older. The pertinent question is, why is obesity a risk factor for erectile dysfunction? Despite the increasing evidence that obesity is connected to impotence, it is still not well understood how exactly carrying extra weight leads to decreased sexual performance. However, scientists and medical experts have suggested that the following mechanisms mediate obesity’s negative effects on sexual function.

Sighting obesity as one cause of erectile dysfunction: Psychologically Distressed

Obese men usually feel uncomfortable with their body. Many men dealing with obesity have a lower self-esteem. Obese people are also encountered with discrimination and prejudice in social situations. This combination of negative body image and social stigmatization may indirectly pose social and psychological barriers to having sexual functions performed satisfactorily. Anxiety, emotional distress, and depression are common feelings among obese people with depression being a risk factor for erectile dysfunction, therefore, depression can cause ED, which may increase the severity of depressive symptoms. Meanwhile, the social and psychological obstacles that obese men face are not the only factors causing sexual problems. Studies have shown that erectile dysfunction in obese men has a direct biological origin.

  • Obesity Taxes the Penile Vascular System
  • Obesity Damages the Penile Endothelium
  • Obesity Blocks the Penile Artery
  • Obesity Causes Hypogonadism

Sighting obesity as one cause of erectile dysfunction: Obesity taxes the penile vascular system

The relationship between obesity and erectile dysfunction becomes apparent if one understands two things;

  • How important blood flow is for normal sexual function and
  • How obesity affects the vascular system.

Penile erection is the result of increased blood flow. The increase in blood flow required for erection is comparable to the quantity your entire body would need from your heart when you engage in a rigorous physical activity. This, therefore, makes the ability of a man to develop and maintain the penile erection to depend on the health of his circulatory system i.e. the vessels that carry our blood. In other words, the inability of the penis to get erected has to do with how healthy the penile vasculature is. Any condition like blocked vessels, etc. that disturbs blood flow interferes with normal erectile function. If for whatever reason this is your problem, you can schedule an appointment with doctor Dalal Akoury today for the correction of all these professionally.
