sex medicine in india
Sex has always been an issue of dichotomy. An integral part of our lives and essential for the continuation of the species, it is far more than just a technical necessity. While social structures in India are quite strict on this, the study of sex – from both its physical and psychological perspectives – has been practiced here from ancient times. Unlike in the west, where this is a fairly recent phenomenon and they are yet to find the proper line of distinction between sex in general and pornography in particular.
Sexual health and well-being are important!Sexual problems may cause considerable personal suffering and embarrassment, and also affect your relationships and partner sexual well-being, too.Herbs from many parts of the world are formulated into a blend that enlarges the penis erectile tissues when aroused. On either side of your penis, you have two spongy areas, called the corpora cavernosa. An erection happens when you become excited and the natural flow of blood fills these erectile tissues.
How can medicines affect sexual function?
The mechanism of sexual function is not fully understood.
It involves a complex coordination of hormones, chemical messengers in the brain (neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin) and the sexual organs. In general:
- dopamine increases sexual function
- serotonin inhibits sexual function
- the hormone testosterone is important, as are the blood vessels involved in producing an erection.
A medicine can therefore affect sexual function in several ways.
Libido or sex drive
Sex drive is influenced by reproductive hormones, particularly testosterone, which is required for sexual arousal.
Medicines that reduce the testosterone level or block its effects are likely to reduce sex drive.
Libido is also affected by your general emotional and physical health. Medicines that affect any of these aspects, even indirectly by causing drowsiness, lethargy, weight gain or confusion, have the potential to reduce your sex drive.
