Premature Ejaculation 

This is when a man ejaculates (or “Cum’s”) sooner than he wants to during sex. It’s only a problem if it bothers him or his partner. There are many factors that can cause this that include stress, anxiety or sometimes depression.

More often than not it will not continue for long but if you are concerned then you can speak to your GP or a sexual health practitioner at HORIZON LGB&T who may refer you to a psychosexual therapist for more help.

Erectile Dysfunction (Impotence) 

Erectile dysfunction is when a man cannot obtain or keep an erection (a hard penis). Most men experience this at some time in their life and sometimes on more than one occasion. The causes of this can be either physical or psychological. Physical causes can include diabetes, raised blood pressure and sometimes heart disease. 

Factors such as Alcohol, Drug use, Smoking and some prescription medication can also cause erectile dysfunction.
Psychological factors usually boil down to worry, be it financial, relationships, and family or work all these can contribute. Sometime even worrying about not getting hard can cause erectile dysfunction.

If you are concerned in any way about anything that we have or maybe haven’t mentioned here then you can speak to your GP, the team at your local sexual health clinic or a practitioner at HORIZON LGB&T in confidence.
