To maintain good potency to a ripe old age is quite difficult, since the male body have an impact:
- stress at work,
- a sedentary lifestyle,
- errors in diet,
- chronic diseases of internal organs
- and much more.
To avoid these effects is impossible, but it is possible to carry out prevention of diseases of male sexual function, knowing the mechanisms of their development.
That affect the potency: the main factors
The main enemy of erectile function – age men.
After 35-40 years the synthesis of testosterone by the testes decreases by 1-2% per year.
Man gradually enters the "in andropause," which is characterized by a partial androgen deficiency. In this period of life changes in the male body, including erectile dysfunction occurs.
Closer to 70-80 years in the blood of men circulates only 40% of testosterone from the level which was 20 years.
However, there are instances when a man in old age has no problems with potency. The explanation is that the impact of comorbidity, sports, lifestyle, bad habits, genetic predisposition.
Also important is the fact that with age, many are overweight, which is a site of aromatization of androgens into estrogens.
Simply put, the ratio of estrogens/androgens are leaning toward the female hormones. Female hormones by a feedback mechanism inhibits the synthesis of gonadotropins in the pituitary gland, and this further reduces the testosterone production by the testicles.
In addition, with age, decreases spermatogenesis, the level of motile sperm decreases as well as the amount of ejaculate. All this testifies to the extinction of sexual function.
With age increases the risk of impairments due to chronic diseases of the heart and blood vessels, which also adversely affect potency. Atherosclerosis of the pelvic vessels – the main cause of erectile dysfunction.
Hypertension, diabetes, conditions after myocardial infarction and stroke brain pathology in the elderly is found in every second men.
There is a legend about how, allegedly, the man was given the power to satisfy 15 women. Perhaps the most men exhausts the limit of youth or, on the contrary neglect this opportunity, but to 40-50 years more than 50% of men experiencing problems with potency.
Was conducted research on the impact of activity of sexual life erection. It turned out that long-term abstinence reduces the potential for men and active sex life, on the contrary increases the potency.
Regular sexual life normalizes the semen, makes the erection more stable, orgasm bright.
All this is due to the fact that sexual intercourse stimulates the production of testosterone.
Regular production of sperm and synthesis of male hormone gives tissues of testicles be replaced by connective tissue. Periodic blood filling of the penis prevents the development of sclerosis in the cavernous bodies.
However, everything is good in moderation. Diseases that are transmitted sexually, contribute to significant reduction of potency. Syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia – causes the formation of infertility in men and women, the development of adhesions and sclerosing processes in the pelvic organs, often develop into chronic forms. So sexually active is recommended with a reliable partner.
Physical form directly affects the potency.
A particular danger to male power is overweight. People with obesity can suffer from syndrome of sleep apnea, pain in muscles and joints, increasing the pressure, glucosum resistentia, up to diabetes.
Impotence may seem like a harmless result, which threatens the man with obesity. Erectile dysfunction develops when abdominal obesity – waist circumference more than 94 cm
If besides the man is abusing bad habits and is over the age of 45 years, that's a very high risk of myocardial infarction and stroke brain.
Therefore, to normalize the health of the whole body, including the and enhance potency, is sufficient to normalize the weight.
While in the blood restores balance of the male and female sex hormones. Adipose tissue has the ability to aromatize male hormones – androgens to the estrogens – female hormones.
At absolute hyperestrogenemia in men decreases libido, and occur erectile dysfunction, can be formed gynecomastia – enlarged Breasts, the semen will contain no motile forms of sperm.
There will be changes in the psyche of a man under the influence of estrogen becomes tearful, labile, can fall into depression.
All these problems can be avoided by just dropping the extra pounds. Men can do it using:
- Balanced diet;
- Limit the use of beer.
Regular exercise in the blood increases testosterone levels and improves sexual potency.
"The most useful men's sports -- swimming, yoga, Jogging, moderate fitness classes." — advise members of the National Association of urology.

Prostatitis, prostatic hyperplasia causes chronic urinary retention, cystitis (bladder inflammation), pyelonephritis (inflammation of the renal pelvis), kidney stones.
Urethritis (inflammation of urethra) causes the development of prostatitis. Different flora can cause inflammation.
Specific pathogens: gonococcus, Trichomonas, chlamydia, Ureaplasma, leaving serious consequences for men's health.
Chlamydia can spread upward from the urethra in the prostate, epididymis. By the end of the diseases are infertility and potency disorders.
Diseases of the cardiovascular system occupy the first place in morbidity in the world.
Hypertension at a later stage leads to irreversible changes in major vessels and capillaries. Vascular network in the penis are also affected.
In the early stages of increasing pressure there is a narrowing of the blood vessels to channel blood circulation in the genital organs slows down.
If a man receives adequate treatment, maintains the pressure in the normal range – not above 139/89 mm Hg, the blood flow is restored.
Diseases of the nervous system and mental disorders lead to psychogenic impotence. In men lost sexual attraction, no desire to engage in sexual intercourse. Antidepressant treatment has side effects – low potency.
Alcohol and drug addiction in 100% of cases leads to any problems with potency. Starting from the reduction of libido to lack of erection.
