Let’s get to how to take care of your penis.
The penis is one of the most important organs for men. It is like our eyes, heart and other organs. It needs maintenance and care to perform its best performance. So do you know any way to make the penis healthy?
Here are some tips for improving penis health.
Regular exercise encourages the circulation of the fluid in the body. When a man is sexually stimulated, his penis fills with blood and also increases its hardness. If there is not enough blood flow, erection problems may occur such as the erection is weak.
Exercise reduces your risk of heart diseases, makes it easier to maintain a healthy body weight, and lowers your risk for developing several commonly occurring cancers. Getting at least 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity can put you at a lower risk for heart disease and stroke.
Enough sleep time
It is generally recommended that adults get 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night. Insufficient sleep can have serious consequences for your body and even interfere with your sex life. Because lack of sleep is related to sexual problems such as erectile dysfunction, infertility, low libido, and other hormonal imbalances.
Alcohol has many effects on health, especially if you’ve had a few drinks too many. Heavy drinking can make it difficult to get or maintain an erection. This is called erectile dysfunction (ED). To prevent this, limit your alcohol intake or the amount of it to a healthy level.
As we all know, smoking damages blood vessels and obstructs normal blood flow, which can also affect erectile function. A study published in the journal BJU International showed that smokers had a higher percentage of sperm DNA damage compared to non-smokers.
If you smoke, try hard to quit it. Although this is definitely not something that can be done tomorrow, quitting smoking is a long-term battle and requires determination and persistence to complete. But the positive effects of quitting smoking go far beyond your penis health and sexual performance and extend to other aspects of your life, such as improving your heart health.
Minimize the impact of stress
Stress is a state of tension. The most common external sources of stress are the needs of the economy, work, and interpersonal relationships. The internal source of stress comes from our hearts and the pressure we put on ourselves. Whether it is internal or external pressure, it will have a negative impact on your penis health and sexual function, leading to ED.
Use some stress management techniques to minimize the negative impact of stress on your life, such as: give yourself some relaxation, spending time with people who make you smile, meditating, etc.
Wash your penis properly
Cleaning your penis properly helps to prevent smegma. If you do not pay attention to cleaning it, the defense function of the local skin tissue will be reduced and you will be susceptible to infection by infectious pathogens. Therefore, it is very important for men to develop the habit of washing the external genitalia.
Since the inner board of the foreskin is thinner than the outer board and is more sensitive to chemical detergents, so you can use warm water and odorless mild soap to clean your genitals. Do not use harsh soaps or scrub the area too hard, as the sensitive skin in the area can be irritated.
Get HPV vaccinated
On average each year in the U.S., 5,700 males are infected with HPV-related head and neck cancers, while one out of every 100 sexually active males has genital warts.
When we learned that HPV causes more than just cervical cancer, such as penile cancer and many heads and neck cancers, it is believed that HPV vaccines can also reduce men’s risk of these cancers.
If you’re age 26 or younger, consider the HPV vaccine to help prevent cancers associated with the virus.
Diagnosis and Treatment
If you have erectile dysfunction, you may have multiple treatment options depending on the cause and severity of the erectile dysfunction. From treatment to medication, several science-based methods can improve your penis health and treat common problems. But if you may be involved in other underlying diseases, you might need further tests or a consultation with a specialist. You doctor will help you with the explanation the risk and the benefits of each treatment and will consider your preferences.
Penis problems will not only affect your sexual and reproductive health but also affect your physical and mental health.
The most effective way to keep the penis healthy and functioning normally is through regular exercise, adequate sleep time, and other healthy habits.
If you have other related problems, make an appointment with a doctor for a series of health consultations and examinations. Take good care of your penis and good luck.
