A diminished desire for sexual activity as well as erectile dysfunction
Diabetes causes males to have difficulties that are unique to their sexuality and urogenital system. Diabetes can cause a variety of common and early urogenital symptoms, including a decrease in sexual drive, impotence, erectile dysfunction (ED), or the inability to either get or sustain an erection long enough to engage in pleasurable sexual activity. When compared to males who do not have diabetes, diabetic men experience these symptoms at younger ages and more frequently overall.
The reason for this is that diabetes leads to a decrease in the production of testosterone, which is the male sex hormone responsible for libido, erection, and other functions associated with sexuality in men. Diabetes can cause men to feel lethargic and depressed, both of which can have a negative impact on their mental health.
Retrograde ejaculation could be a sign of diabetes
Another typical diabetes-related sexual symptom in men is called retrograde ejaculation, which may also be described as the generation of a diminished amount of seminal fluid. It is a condition in which seminal fluid flows backward into the bladder rather than exiting the body through the urethra as it normally would. This condition is referred to as retrograde seminal flow.
This issue arises because high amounts of sugar in the blood cause damage to the nerves and blood vessels that regulate the muscles of the urethra and bladder, which in turn causes this issue.
