Sex and the ageing process

copy from http://www.mydr.com.au/seniors-health/sex-and-the-ageing-process

Most older people want and are able to enjoy an active, satisfying sex life. However, over time, you may notice a slowing of sexual response. This is part of the normal ageing process.

What changes do women experience?

Women may notice changes in the shape and flexibility of the vagina. These changes may not cause a serious loss in the ability to enjoy sex. After menopause, many women will have a decrease in vaginal lubrication that can affect sexual pleasure. Simple lubricants (such as KY Jelly or Replens) can help.

What changes do men experience?

Men often notice more distinct changes. It may take longer to get an erection or the erection may not be as firm as in earlier years. The feeling that an ejaculation is about to happen may be shorter. The loss of erection after orgasm may be more rapid or it may take longer before an erection is again possible. Some men may find they need more stimulation to become aroused.

Older men and impotence

As men get older, impotence — the loss of ability to achieve and maintain an erection hard enough for sexual intercourse (also called erectile dysfunction) — seems to increase, especially in men with heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetic complications. For many men, impotence can be managed and perhaps even reversed.

Effects of illness or disability

Although illness or disability can affect sexuality, even the most serious conditions shouldn't stop you from having a satisfying sex life.
  • Heart disease. Many people who have had a heart attack are afraid that having sex will cause another attack. The risk of this is very low. Follow your doctor's advice. Most people can start having sex again 12 to 16 weeks after an attack.
  • Diabetic complications. Most men with diabetic complications do not have problems, but it is one of the few conditions that can cause impotence. In most cases medical treatment can help.
  • Stroke. Sexual function is rarely damaged by a stroke and it is unlikely that sexual exertion will cause another stroke.
  • Arthritis. Joint pain due to arthritis can limit sexual activity. Surgery and some medicines may relieve this pain.
  • Surgery. Most people worry about having any kind of surgery, especially when the sex organs are involved. The good news is that most people do return to the kind of sex life they enjoyed before having surgery.
  • Hysterectomy. This is the surgical removal of the womb. A hysterectomy should not affect sexual functioning. If a hysterectomy seems to take away your ability to enjoy sex, seek advice.
  • Mastectomy. This is the surgical removal of all or part of a woman's breast. Although her body is as capable of sexual response as ever, a woman may lose her sexual desire or her sense of being desired. Sometimes it is useful to talk with other women who have had a mastectomy.
  • Prostatectomy. This is the surgical removal of all or part of the prostate. This procedure can cause impotence in some cases. If a radical prostatectomy (removal of the entire gland) is needed, surgical techniques can save the nerves going to the penis and an erection may still be possible.

Other issues

  • Alcohol. Too much alcohol can reduce potency in men and delay orgasm in women.
  • Medicines. Antidepressants, tranquillisers and certain high blood pressure medicines can cause impotence. Some medicines can make it difficult for men to ejaculate. Some medicines reduce a woman's sexual desire. Check with your doctor. They can often prescribe a medicine without this side effect.

Emotional concerns

Sexuality is often a delicate balance of emotional and physical issues. How we feel may affect what we are able to do. For example, worrying about impotence can create enough stress to cause it.
As a woman ages, she may become more anxious about her appearance. This emphasis on youthful physical beauty can interfere with a woman's ability to enjoy sex.
Older couples may have the same problems that affect people of any age. They may also have the added concerns of age, retirement and other lifestyle changes, and illness. These problems can cause sexual difficulties. Talk openly with your doctor about this. The important thing is for both members of a couple to find what makes them both happy.



Male menopause

copy from: http://www.mydr.com.au/seniors-health/male-menopause

As they age, many men worry about what they might expect and whether there is such a thing as the male menopause.
Strictly speaking, and when compared with the changes that happen at the time of the female menopause, there is no such thing as a male menopause.
In women, the menopause is a sign of rapid reduction in female hormone production, which can produce a variety of symptoms, both physical and psychological. As men age, the production of male hormones also declines, but the decline in testosterone is generally regarded as being very gradual — usually less than one per cent a year after the age of about 30.
However, many men in their 40s and 50s do report symptoms such as:
  • reduced physical strength;
  • a degree of muscle loss;
  • mood swings and irritability;
  • loss of libido;
  • erectile dysfunction;
  • changes in sleep patterns;
  • reduced energy;
  • depressed mood; and
  • lack of motivation.
These problems may be the result of ageing or gradually reducing testosterone levels. They may also be caused by other problems, such as an underlying medical problem, medication side effect, lack of exercise or excessive alcohol use.
Having a check-up with your doctor is a good idea if you are experiencing any of these problems. Your doctor can determine the most likely cause and whether treatment is required. In many cases, lifestyle adjustments — such as a healthy diet and regular physical activity — may help.
Men with these problems also need support from family and friends. They may need help to accept a new stage in their lives and to be reminded of what they have achieved, rather than what they haven’t.

Testosterone deficiency

Many older men will have testosterone levels similar to those of men in their 30s. Only about one in 200 men under 60 and one in 10 men over 60 have abnormally low testosterone levels.
Fatigue, muscle weakness, low mood and loss of sex drive can indicate low testosterone, but these symptoms can be also caused by other conditions. Your doctor can check your testosterone level if you have these symptoms.
Even if your testosterone level is mildly reduced, the cause may be another condition such as depression or obesity. If so, treating the underlying condition may return testosterone levels to normal.
Testosterone therapy does help men with severe testosterone deficiency, but the evidence isn’t clear regarding whether it helps other men. Bear in mind that testosterone therapy does have potential risks, including enlargement of the prostate, growth of prostate cancer or breast cancer that is already present, breathing problems during sleep and acne.

"求缺斋"的悟


近日读《曾国藩家书》,字字珠玑,如饮醇酒。业能有专,方有所成。既立志为医,必终生以行医为念,悬壶济世。

书中多劝慰曾家兄弟学习须以“有恒”为学中之贵,终必有所得。

凡事不可强求完美,过度追求,则是“吝”。曾府宅中书房称为“求缺斋”,守得一缺,也顾得大全,凡事有得有失,不可事事周全,家中所有预备都有一缺。故自家学习处也 效仿曾前辈,挂“求缺斋”,时刻警醒。
