Many people confuse libido and arousal. A libido problem is the lack of interest in sex while an arousal problem is the physical difficulty with performing sexually. For example, a man can have strong libido but, if he suffers from erectile dysfunction, he may not be able to become aroused enough to enjoy sex.
Although we seek to help both men and women achieve greater sexual satisfaction, Absorption Pharmaceuticals is currently focused on male sexual dysfunction.
Male Sexual Dysfunction
Male sexual dysfunction is dominated by three conditions: erectile dysfunction, low libido, and ejaculation disorders, most commonly premature ejaculation.
Erectile dysfunction is now a well-understood and treatable sexual dysfunction for most men. The success of PDE-5 inhibitors such as Viagra, Cialis and Levitra, have proven that the cause of ED for most men has biological origins.
Low Libido in men can have a variety of sources including stress, depression, lack of sleep, and excessive alcohol or drug use. With men over 40, it can often be caused by low testosterone levels. Visit our page on Low T where you can learn if a treatment regimen may be right for you.
There are three primary ejaculatory dysfunctions: delayed ejaculation, retrograde ejaculation and premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation is not only the most common ejaculation dysfuncton, it is the most common sexual dysfunction overal, affecting approximately 30% of men.
Peyronie's disease is a disorder of the penis involving the growth of scar tissue in the penis affecting approximately 5-10% of men. This scar tissue often causes pain, erect shape change, erectile dysfunction, indentation, loss of girth and shortening.
