Fertility – the inability to conceive a child after one year of regular, unprotected intercourse – affects about 20% of couples, with 30% to 50% of cases stemming from male-related problems.


However, a diagnosis of infertility is not necessarily a verdict of sterility: only 1% to 2 % of infertile couples are actually sterile, and half of those who seek help can eventually bear a child.

Types of Sexual Dysfunction Include:

  • Erectile dysfunction (when one has difficulty in getting an erection to initiate sexual activity or maintaining an erection to fulfill sexual activity)

  • Premature ejaculation (when a male reaches an orgasm earlier during intercourse than he or his partner would like)

  • Delayed ejaculation (when the orgasm is too slow or not achievable)

  • Retrograde ejaculation (when the ejaculate flows into the bladder rather than through the tip of the penis). This affects men who have had prostate surgery or are on medications to improve urination.
