Where is the prostate?
The prostate is a small gland situated between the bladder and the urethra. The urethra is a tube in the penis through which you urinate. The urine has to pass through the prostate after it leaves the bladder. Under normal circumstances, the urine passes easily through the prostate, into the urethra, and exits the body.
The prostate is part of the male reproductive system, and its most important function is the production of a fluid, that together with sperm cells from the testicles, makes up semen.
The muscles of a healthy prostate forces the semen into the urethra so that it can be expelled during ejaculation.
How prostate disease may result in erectile dysfunction
Unfortunately, there are circumstances that may cause the prostate to enlarge, narrowing the urethra pipe, slowing the flow of urine, and often not allowing the bladder to empty properly. You may be left with a perpetual feeling that you still need to urinate.
This is known as benign growth of the prostate, or BPH, and has the potential to compromise erections, and affect fertility.
An infection of the prostate, called prostatitis, which is usually caused by a sexually transmitted disease, can also cause erectile dysfunction. This condition results in severe burning when urinating, more frequent urination, painful ejaculation, fever and chills.
Prostatitis can certainly interfere with sexual pleasure, because of painful ejaculation, and the constant feeling of wanting to urinate.
These unpleasant sensations can lead directly to ED, as a sexual encounter with such issues hanging over your head, can leave you embarrassed with no anticipation of enjoyable sex.
Treatment from the doctor to will undoubtedly include a lengthy period of antibiotic medications to deal with the infected prostate gland.
Studies have shown that it can take several weeks for the infection to clear up, and eliminate a blockage in the urethra, so that the feeling of wanting to urinate is eased.
Medications which may help prostate-related ED
Research has indicated that certain medications such as Viagra and Cialis, which treat erectile dysfunction, may help to improve a benign prostate growth (BPH), and help combat the ED symptoms.
These meds promote the blood flow to the genital area, and particularly the penis. The theory is that the increased blood flow to the bladder and the prostate, may allow the muscles to relax, which will lead to a greater urinary flow. When there is less pressure on the urethra, and more blood in the penile area, ED symptoms may be successfully reduced.
The study results also indicated that positive improvement was noted in men who had both BPH and ED conditions.
A definite link
According to new research, there is a definite link between prostate disease and ED. The conclusion is that men who have prostate problems, as well as ED or other sexual difficulties, are not imagining the issues. The two are undoubtedly related.
A new analysis has now revealed, that sexual function can be negatively affected by prostatitis, even in men who do not have the usual urinary difficulties.
Your first action if your suspect prostate issues, must be to visit your health professional for a thorough examination.
