The Role of Sex in Prostate Health

Many men believe that the prostate gland has little or nothing to with sexual performance or they are not sure what the role of this very important gland is. Its main role is to produce enough liquid to carry the sperm to its correct destination. A reporter recently asked men about their prostates in the street and the answers were somewhat vague if not downright inaccurate ! Many of the men questioned had a rather vague idea of where the gland actually was.

Once the gland is affected by enlargement (BPH) or infections (prostatitis) then its function will be compromised and can lead to loss of libido and/or impotence. In the case of an enlarged prostate, the increased size can interfere with erection and can lead to erectile dysfunction if not treated or looked after.
