A study published in the journal of European Urology reported that men who ejaculated more were less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer. There is no way to unequivocally say how many times a week a man should ejaculate, but a research of this kind affirms that men should consider speaking to a doctor if they are having difficulty ejaculating or maintaining an erection.
No two men are the same, but all men deserve to be in their most healthy condition.
Two Important Components of Sexual Health for Men
Sex plays an important part in the life of most men. The desire to engage in active sex with a partner can turn into frustration with ED gets in the way. Harvard Health Publishing reports that “optimal male sexual health” involves the ability to experience desire and maintain an erection.
For a man to experience peak sexual health and enjoyment, the activity of sex must be functional and pleasurable. When it becomes difficult to reach a full erection, satisfactory sex can be difficult. While ED can be frustrating to experience and difficult to talk about, it also might be a precursor to other health concerns.
Many of the treatments available today can allow men to reinvigorate their sex lives. A man should not be afraid to discuss his sexual health concerns with a health care provider who can recommend effective treatments.
Men Can Have Quality Sex as They Age
Men and women are capable of enjoying healthy, active sex lives for as long as they want. While age can play a role in sexual function, it does not have to prevent any man from having sex. As men age, their ability to have an erection that lasts might be diminished by illness and physical and emotional stress.
One of the keys to having the amount of sex one desires is to maintain optimal physical health as much as possible. Another key to a happy sex life is a willingness to seek professional guidance as soon as possible if a man experiences any level of sexual dysfunction.
For men, erectile dysfunction that makes it difficult to have a firm erection can be a problem that would require working with medical professionals to solve. ED is treatable in many cases. Help is available in the form of many treatment options that can reawaken men’s sex lives.

What Men Need to Know About Shockwave Therapy to Treat ED
Along with the more traditional methods of ED treatment men may already be familiar with, there are new treatments available that can help. One of these methods, shockwave therapy for ED, uses mild acoustic waves to encourage blood flow. Because a full and firm erection relies on blood flow to the penis, this therapy is beneficial (as affirmed by research published in Therapeutic Advances in Urology).
Men can speak to their health care provider about their overall health and the ED they are experiencing. Shockwave therapy is a completely painless, noninvasive treatment method for reawakening inactive stem cells. It may allow a man to achieve the erection he wants and return to an exciting and thriving sex life.
Men should discuss their treatment options with their partners and decide which choice will best fit their sexual desire and current lifestyle.
Treating ED with Oral Medications
Some men may prefer the ease and discretion of treating ED with a medication in the pill form. Following a thorough health examination, men may opt for a prescription medication such as Viagra. However, some men may not be able to take ED medications safely. Any man who:
- Takes nitrates for chest pain
- Has low blood pressure or uncontrolled blood pressure
- Has severe liver disease
- Has a kidney disease that requires dialysis
Men should talk to a healthcare professional about their specific case of ED and the treatment option that will work best with them. A man’s sex life should be his decision. Even with ED, a man can still enjoy a happy, fulfilling sex life. Seeking help is an important part of enjoying the sexual frequency a man prefers.
