Does Orchitis Cause Impotence and Premature Ejaculation?
Many men do not know much about orchitis. As a matter of fact, orchitis can bring a lot of pain to men. Additionally, untimely treatment will leave sequelae, affecting patients' normal life and mental health.
Most cases of orchitis are caused by retrograde infections, such as urinary tract infections, prostatitis, urethral surgery, and prolonged catheterization, while external stimuli can cause traumatic orchitis.
When the condition of orchitis is more serious, it can cause testicular necrosis, causing a decrease in estrogen levels, leading to erectile dysfunction and, therefore, impotence.
Premature ejaculation is also a relatively common clinical male sexual dysfunction, mainly in the control of ejaculation, which in turn involves the sensitivity of the central and peripheral nerves. Although premature ejaculation patients can not control the time of ejaculation, they can have normal erections.
The causes of premature ejaculation are mostly related to psychological, genetic, mental, and endocrine factors and are not directly related to testosterone. Therefore, this kind of inflammatory disease generally does not cause premature ejaculation.
However, the human body is a complex system, especially the diseases occurring in the reproductive system, which may bring about local neurohumoral changes. The patient will generate changes in the psychological state due to the long-term symptoms of the disease. With the impact of inflammation, the patient will likely experience impotence and premature ejaculation clinical symptoms.
Therefore, if the patient has orchitis and does not actively carry out the treatment, the aggravation of the condition is likely to lead to sexual dysfunction, causing the patient to have impotence and premature ejaculation. So, patients must pay attention to the disease, timely detection, and timely treatment.
The main treatments for orchitis include:
General treatment: for mild acute orchitis, mainly bed rest, local hot compresses, and elevation of the scrotum and other physical therapy methods, experts said that such treatment is simple and effective for patients and can prevent the abuse of antibiotics.
Drug Treatment: the main application of antibacterial drug therapy, commonly used drugs, including aminoglycosides, benzylpenicillin, cephalosporins, quinolones, etc. In the experience of medication, different infection pathways caused by orchitis preferred antibacterial drugs are different; the specific type of drugs, usage, and dosage need to comply with the doctor's instructions.
Patients can choose the traditional Chinese medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill to prevent recurrence and completely treat the disease. It is formulated with various herbs, which can comprehensively regulate the patient's genitourinary system, relieve pain, eliminate inflammation, and completely cure the disease.
Surgery Treatment: Acute orchitis can also be treated surgically. If an abscess has formed in the testicle, it should be incised and drained. Testicular atrophy can be treated with orchiectomy if the testicle is severely damaged.
Other treatment: subcutaneous circumscribed spermatic cord closure therapy is suitable for acute nonspecific orchitis. Lidocaine alone or a mixture of lidocaine with a combination of dexamethasone and ceftriaxone sodium is injected subcutaneously around the circumscribed spermatic cord on the affected side. Blocking the nerves distributed along the spermatic cord with local anesthetics reduces the local swelling and pain in the testicles, improves blood circulation, and is conducive to the subsidence of inflammation and relief of symptoms.
Orchitis is very harmful; in addition to causing male sexual dysfunction, it may cause scrotal pain, endocrine disorders, mental abnormalities, and even infertility. Therefore, patients should actively treat this disease. At the same time, the diet should be light and easy to digest, maintain a good mood, and pay attention to appropriate rest and exercise to enhance physical fitness.
