What Causes Delayed Orgasm In Men?
What are the Causes of Delayed Orgasm In Men?
Delayed orgasm in men is caused by several possible medical or psychological conditions. Delayed orgasmic response causes the inability to achieve release, but without male erectile dysfunction issues.
Here is a list of factors related to delayed orgasms in men.
Congenital Defects Related to the Male Reproductive System
Congenital anomalies causing abnormalities in the male genitalia can impact the ability to achieve orgasm. Congenital defects could include curvature of the penis, undescended testicles, an abnormally positioned urinary opening, and unusually large or small penis development.
Injury to the Pelvic or Spinal Nerves
Blunt force injuries to either the lower back or pelvic regions can cause problems with delayed orgasm in males. Sometimes the injuries cause permanent damage to the lower body nervous system, but sometimes there are psychological factors that are similar to post-traumatic stress.
Infections, Including Prostate and Urethral Infection
Much like the aforementioned accidental injuries to the pelvic or spinal regions, similar problems can arise from infections of the prostate and urethral area. The system shock that occurs with such infections can cause males to have post-traumatic reactions after the infection is gone. Often the stress caused by chronic infections makes delayed orgasm manifest.
Prostate Surgery or Prostate Removal
In extreme cases like prostate cancer, surgical removal of the cancerous prostate may be necessary. This kind of surgery may cause physiological shock to the entire lower extremities. Also, the healing process of such surgery can be painful, thus impacting all lower body activities and manifest itself in orgasm response problems.
Hormone Issues Such As Low Thyroid Hormone (Hypothyroidism) or Low Testosterone
Hormonal imbalances always are important factors to consider, relating to delayed orgasms in men. Hypothyroidism is usually a lifetime condition so it may affect the developmental growth of the male organs. Low testosterone impacts the entire muscular system and blood flow of the body, so it also needs to be factored in.
Stress, Anxiety and/or Depression
High levels of tension build up in the body, manifesting as stress, anxiety and sometimes depression. Learning to release stress is the key to combating the physical symptoms caused by it. Relaxation techniques and certain medications may be helpful, but these should be done under the supervision of a counselor or trained physician.
Cultural or Religious Factors That Cause Feelings of Intense Guilt Related to Sex
Society feeds men dogmas and stereotypes that psychologically disable them sexually. Delayed orgasmic response can be related to emotional guilt that is tied to religious upbringing or current belief systems. These cultural factors are important to consider.
Stress from arguments, personal problems, and physical violence will directly affect sexual performance. In men, this often manifests as the inability to reach orgasm or get an erection. Try to work on the issues in your relationship with counseling.
Lack of Attraction to a Partner
Honesty is always the best policy when it comes to sex. If you aren’t attracted to someone, this is usually apparent before both of you are naked and ready to engage in sex. Delayed orgasm might give you great sexual stamina, but isn’t recommended for enjoyment sexually.
Since most anti-depressants are prescribed for conditions that are related to the seasonal affective disorder, they may impact sexual functionality. Because low testosterone and certain sexual dysfunctions are also related to seasonal changes.
Some Antipsychotic Medications
Like anti-depressants, these type pharmaceuticals can have erratic effects on sexual performance. This should be addressed with the doctor prescribing them to the individual patient.
Blood Pressure Medications
All blood pressure medications are designed to affect blood flow. Thus, they often have dramatic impacts on the ability to achieve erections and reach orgasm in males.
These type of medications are sometimes prescribed for edema and glaucoma. Cause the kidneys to infuse more sodium into an individual’s urine. Because they extract water from the blood vessels, it reduces blood pressure. Lower blood flow impacts the ability to achieve an orgasm directly.
Alcohol, Especially Excessive Drinking and Alcoholism
Essentially, all forms of intoxicants, drugs, and alcohol complicate sexual performance problems. High proof alcohols like whiskey and stimulant drugs are known for delayed orgasmic side effects. Avoiding intoxicants before and during sex is the best recommendation.
