Title: Male Organ Function and Spinal Cord Injury: 3 Types of Problems

Male Organ Function and Spinal Cord Injury 3
Types of Problems
By John Dugan
  • As many readers know, male organ health can
    be a bit complicated. Some of it is easy and
    directly involves the male organ, such as caring
    for dry male organ skin or checking for signs of
    partner-transmitted infections. Other times, male
    organ care may relate to parts of the body beyond
    the organ itself. Such is the case with spinal
    cord injuries, which have the potential to impact
    male organ health, sometimes significantly.
The spinal cord
  • The spinal cord is a long, thin, tubular
    bundle of nervous tissue and support cells that
    extends from the medulla oblongata in the
    brainstem to the lumbar region of the vertebral
    column. The brain and spinal cord together make
    up the central nervous system (CNS). Its
    primary function is the transmission of nerve
    signals throughout the body, as well as helping
    to coordinate the bodys reflexes.
  • Sensual response depends upon the bodys ability
    to transmit messages along the spinal cord. So,
    if the spinal cord gets injured, it can
    potentially bring about male organ issues for a
Reproductive problems
  • Most often, the male organ issues that can
    result from a spinal cord injury are reproductive
    dysfunction or problems with emissions.
  • Tumescence tend to be classified in three
  • - Psychogenic. This is the kind of tumescence
    that comes about from thinking sensually
    stimulating thoughts or viewing adult imagery.
  • - Reflexogenic. This tumescence occurs when the
    member is physically stimulated, as when it is
    stroked by someone.
  • - Spontaneous. This tumescence generally occurs
    due to some internal stimuli, such as having a
    bladder that is full of urine.
  • Exactly which part of the spinal cord is
    damaged and how badly the injury is will
    determine which type of tumescence is affected
    and to what degree. In some cases, tumescence is
    not affected, while in others, it is impeded but
    still possible. In other cases, it is unlikely a
    man will have tumescence at all.
  • In some very rare cases, a spinal cord injury
    may result in priapism, a situation in which a
    man experiences a very painful hardness that will
    not deflate.
  • Some spinal cord injuries bring about a
    situation in which a man is unable to come.
    Another possible side effect is retrograde
    emission, in which semen is diverted into the
    bladder rather than leaving through the urethra.
  • Spinal cord injuries can be very serious and
    affect many parts of the body. Treatments for
    reproductive issues related to spinal cord injury
    vary in their effectiveness, depending upon the
    specifics of the injury. However, here are some
    of the typical treatment options
  • - Oral medication, which is frequently used in
    treating reproductive dysfunction in men. In men
    with spinal cord injuries, there is a good
    success rate.
  • - Injections. Some men respond to having
    medication injected directly into the member in
    order to achieve tumescence.
  • - Vacuum pumps. These devices fit snugly around
    the member and then create a vacuum, which draws
    blood into the organ.
  • - Implants. Prostheses replace parts of the
    member with artificial elements which can be
    easily triggered to expand.
  • Spinal cord injuries can bring about
    significant challenges for a man. However, no
    matter the degree to which reproductive function
    may be altered, a man still needs to regularly
    use a superior male organ health crème (health
    professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is
    clinically proven mild and safe for skin) to help
    maintain his overall male organ health. The best
    crèmes will contain ingredients such as Shea
    butter and vitamin E, which can help keep the
    skin hydrated and less prone to flakiness. The
    crème should also contain vitamin A, which has
    specific antibacterial properties that fight the
    bacteria responsible for unwanted persistent odor.
