What leads to a decrease in the male drive?

Exercising Can Tackle Decreased Male DriveThere are numerous factors that might increase your chances of a decreased male drive. It is influenced by your brain, hormones, blood vessels, and other factors. Your “normal” functioning can be affected by any of the above components. During an erection, the corpora and cavernosa of your penis are filled with blood causing it to expand and stiffen.

The process of erection is initiated when the impulses are received from your brain and genitals. Erectile dysfunction occurs when your penis is restricted from these impulses or blood flow. Research indicates that people who are diabetic are prone to ED than those who aren’t diabetic.

Most people tend to confuse poor libido and ejaculation problems with erectile dysfunction. If you’re suffering from ED, it’s a whole different scenario; your body fails to respond even with a healthy libido. Erectile dysfunction is common with diabetics, smokers, and obese people.

Some doctors would suggest medications, such as Viagra, Levitra, or Cialis to increase the blood flow to your penis.

Nature remains to be the best medicine for most dysfunction.

Rising to the occasion with physical exercise

Walking is all you need to do to avoid and recover from most diseases; sometimes, the simplest of ways works the best. Having a healthy diet and walking for at least 2 miles a day can reduce your waistline. If you have a 42-inch waistline or more, then you’re 50% prone to erectile dysfunction than those with a 32-inch waist.

Kegel exercise or pelvic exercise enhances your sexual health and urinary continence. These exercises reinforce your bulbocavernosus muscle to do just the right thing you need for a healthy sexual life. Allowing your penis to pump during an ejaculation, engorge with blood during an erection, and emptying your urethra after urination.

Your lifestyle can impair blood circulation resulting in erectile dysfunction. However, your blood vessels will suffer gravely if you’re a heavy smoker and indulge in alcohol and drug abuse. This in turn is going to reduce the blood flow to your penis. Research indicates that 70% of men with alcohol dependence syndrome suffer from sexual dysfunction, such as erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.

Advanced Kegel exercises

You’ll probably find it hard to finish a complete series of 10 Kegel cycles on your first try; that’s absolutely fine. Work as hard as you can, and eventually try to work up to 10 to 20 Kegels, at least three times a day. Avoid holding your breath for a long time, or pushing up with your stomach, buttocks, or thigh muscles. Always remember to relax after every 5 counts.

You can also challenge yourselves by alternating between short and long-duration exercises.
