... acupuncture for the premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, and loss of libido in young men ... (life coach, counselor, psychotherapist, psychologist, psychiatrist, quezon city, manila, philippines)

the tv5 crew drops by for an interview on the common sexual dysfunctions experienced by young men.  

in my clinical practice, young men in their late teens and early 20s have been consulting me for acupuncture for their sexual problems, not unlike a decade ago when my patients would mostly be middle-aged men.  

i would consider the main culprit of sexual dysfunction in young men to unhealthy lifestyles, which create more stress, fatigue, depression, anxiety, and medical conditions.  

well, young men or not, the 4 most common dysfunctions are:

* erectile dysfunction:  this is the inability to develop or maintain an erection during sexual performance.  

* premature ejaculation:  also known as rapid or early ejaculation, this is a condition wherein a man ejaculates earlier than he would want to,

* loss of libido:  this refers to the waning or absence of sexual interest or sex drive.  

* penile dysmorphia:  this refers to a preoccupation and insecurity about one's penis size.

besides acupuncture, the treatment for sexual dysfunctions i use is a combination of medication,  psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, sex therapy, and exercises.
