Title: Scleroderma May Cause Male Organ Problems

Scleroderma May Cause Male Organ Problems
By John Dugan
  • Some chronic health conditions have been known to
    contribute to or cause a variety of male organ
    problems so men need to be aware that caring
    for their male organ health may involve thinking
    outside of the mid-section on occasion. For
    example, some men with a condition known as
    scleroderma may find that it brings with it some
    male organ problems that require attention.
Understanding scleroderma
  • Also known as systemic sclerosis, scleroderma is
    a chronic disease that affects connective tissue.
    The name comes from two Greek words which
    together describe a hardening of the skin, one of
    the common hallmarks of scleroderma. Its an
    autoimmune disease, which means that it arises
    when the bodys defense system makes a mistake
    and starts misrecognizing a normal body function
    or element as foreign and so takes steps to
    attack it.
  • The severity of scleroderma varies widely in
    some cases it is very, very mild while in others
    it can be quite serious. About 300,000 people in
    the United States have it, and it is much more
    common among women than men. Most of the time it
    appears in a person between the ages of 25 and
  • When scleroderma occurs, it can cause changes to
    various body parts, including the skin, muscles,
    blood vessels and sometimes internal organs.
    Common symptoms include hardened skin, poor blood
    flow (especially to extremities), fatigue, and
    stiffness. In some instances, a person may have
    esophagus issues.
Male organ problems
  • As mentioned, scleroderma is a connective tissue
    disorder. An affected person may find they have
    an excess growth of connective tissue, which
    results in the hardening. Peyronies disease, in
    which the member bends at an abnormal angle, is
    often a result of problems with connective
    tissue. In many cases, the excess curvature is
    accompanied by pain during tumescences. In some
    cases, the curvature is so severe that it
    precludes partner penetration.
  • Even in the absence of excess curvature, some men
    with scleroderma experience pain or tenderness in
    the manhood that may also contribute to male
    organ problems.
  • Since fatigue is a common symptom of the
    disorder, a man with this condition may find that
    he lacks the stamina to have extended sensual
    engagement. He may start out strong but find that
    he winds down earlier than he would like due to
    lack of energy.
  • Poor blood flow, which is often caused by
    cardiovascular issue associated with scleroderma,
    can also affect the member. The manhood becomes
    firm when a rush of blood enters the organ,
    becomes trapped, and causes the member to swell.
    Scleroderma can impede this process, resulting in
    tumescence dysfunction of varying significance.
  • Scleroderma does not have a cure, so doctors tend
    to treat the symptoms of the disorder. General
    treatments may attempt to redirect the immune
    system. Male organ problems will usually be dealt
    with by addressing the related cause. For
    example, developing strategies to cure fatigue or
    to strengthen blood flow may be recommended.
    Couples may find that there are particular times
    of day or positions that can help them counteract
    the practical effects of the disorder.
  • Treating male organ problems related to
    scleroderma will be easier if the overall health
    of the member is good. One way to help properly
    maintain that health is via the daily application
    of a first rate male organ health crème (health
    professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is
    clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Men
    should search out a crème that contains an
    ingredient called L-arginine. This is an amino
    acid which plays a role in developing nitric
    oxide, which in turn helps male organ blood
    vessels expand when there is a rush of blood to
    the organ. The crème should also include vitamin
    C, which is a key component of collagen which
    contributes to manhood skin elasticity and tone
    and which also aids in male member blood flow.
