Mens health of often overlooked until an obvious problem occurs such as prostatitis or ED (erectile dysfunction). According to the Cleveland Clinic, by age 40, 40% of men are affected by ED and by at 70, 70% are affected by ED. Prostatitis is one of the most common urological diseases and can be caused by inflammation or infections. Prostatitis can lead to infertility, erectile dysfunction and difficult urination. Signs and symptoms of men’s health may not appear directly related to reproductive organs, however even high blood pressure, low libido, depression and lack of motivation have been associated with low testosterone.
Male infertility has risen over the last 50 years as researchers have found that sperm counts and sperm quality are on the decline. Sperm quality and DNA integrity has been correlated with more than simply fertilization rates, but with factors such as the development of the embryo, miscarriage prevention and the health of the child.
