Sexual health for men? 

Sexual activity is a major concern for men with paralysis.

Men are eager to know whether they are still "equally capable" or whether sexual pleasure is a thing of the past. They are worried that they will no longer be the father of the children, their partners will find them unattractive, that the life-partner will tie his bag and leave him. It is true that men often face changes in their relationships and sexual activity after illness or injury. Of course, emotional changes do occur and these changes can affect a person's sexuality.

It is important to look into.

That healthy sexuality involves not only contact with the genitalia but also passion, affection and love. Nonetheless, advanced penis and orgasm are issues of top importance after paralysis. Generally, there are two types of erections in men. Psychogenic erectile arising from prurient visuals or thoughts depends on the level and extent of paralysis. Men with complete paralysis often do not have psychogenic erections. Reflex erection occurs reluctantly by direct contact with the penis or other aphrodisiac zones (ears, nipples, neck). Most men with paralysis are able to have reluctant erections provided that the sacral spinal cord (S2 – S4) is not damaged.

Ejaculation after paralysis is possible for some men.

But it is not as it is often defined. It can become less somatic, less focused on the genitals and more of a state of mind. It is important to know that stimulation does not make loss of sexuality impossible.

While many men with paralysis still "ejaculate," erectile dysfunction is not sufficiently rigid or long-lasting. Innumerable treatments (pills, tablets, needles and seedlings) are available to treat penile erection (ED).

The best clinical treatment for ED is Viagra (sildenafil),

It improves erectile quality and sexual activity in many paraplegic men. There is some clinical evidence that men with MS benefit from Viagra. Men with blood pressure problems (high or low) or vascular disease should avoid this medicine. Other new drugs that claim to be more than Viagra's effectiveness include Cialis and Levitra. It may be a panacea for paralyzed men, but no clinical data is available. Another option for erectile dysfunction involves injecting the drug (papavarine or alprostadil) into the stem of the penis. This causes rigid erections that can last for an hour or more. Warning: These drugs can cause preeclampsia, long-lasting erectile dysfunction, which can damage the penis. In addition, injections can also cause erectile scratches, scaring or causing infection and may not be the best option for a person with limited hand movements.

Medicated urethral suppository is another option.

The drug pellet (alprostadil) is placed in the urethra, causing the blood vessels to loosen and fill the penis with blood. This can be an option for men with 30 to 40 percent of whom Viagra does not affect.

Vacuum pumps are a non-rip-off, non-medicated method of erection.

 The penis is placed in a plastic cylinder, when air is taken out the blood enters the penis. Tightening is maintained by placing an elastic band around the base of the penis. This produces a bluish-looking erectile that can look cold when touched. Don't forget to remove the band after 30 minutes to avoid skin strain. Medicare and insurance companies often pay for these devices, including the best battery-powered models for people with limited hand movements (although you'll need prescriptions).
