Yeast infection. Yes, men can get yeast infections too. Untreated, male yeast infections can affect reproductive organs and sexual performance.
To be honest, I didn’t really know about this. I have always thought that yeast was mainly a woman’s problem. I guess I was wrong!
Biological clock. Men’s fertility has long been touted as an ageless concept. Studies now show that a man’s ability to reproduce actually goes down after age 35. Additionally, the genetic disorders linked to a woman’s age at time of conception now also applies to men. After age 40, men’s sperm shows more than twice the DNA problems than that of a 20 year old.
So it’s not just women who have to watch the clock. Then again, we have heard of countless men aged over 50 becoming fathers all over again, haven’t we? Still, the potential DNA problems are not something that we should brush off.
“Broken” penis. A man’s erect penis can actually be injured similarly to a broken bone. If while erect, the penis is pushed too forcefully into an object harder than the penis, the result can be a penile fracture that requires immediate medical attention.
Another thing that should not be disregarded. Though I don’t suppose we talk about this as much (I mean, who would want to talk about broken things?), since it is possible, we better watch out.
There, I hope you enjoyed this two-part post on sexual health. 🙂
