Myths About Men’s Health and Dignity

Men don’t care about their health
Myths about men’s health and dignity. In fact, men rarely talk about their illnesses, or allow themselves to drink tablets in front of everyone. However, this doesn’t mean that they don’t care about their health. By his nature, man is always trying to solve the problem himself, without sharing it with others. If a man would constantly complain to others, as the result he could lose authority among his friends, and fairer sex can doubt about his masculinity.
Male menopause
Another common myth is andropause. So far there is no scientific evidence regarding male menopause, however, the topic is popular even among medical professionals. Andropause is not identical with the menopause in women and men’s sexuality is not determined only by the level of the hormone testosterone in the blood. In older men, the sexual activity changes due to many other factors, such as the deterioration of cardiovascular activity, meteosensitivity and others. Also, do not ignore the lifestyle. If a man smoked a lot for decades, drank alcohol and didn’t move much, the notorious “andropause” has nothing to do with it.
Men can be conquered with a help of food
If a girl wants to conquer a man, then she must learn to cook. Is it really so? Surveys conducted among men suggest that first of all they appreciate the sensuality in women, care and understanding. But the ability to cook is an outsider in terms of male preference.

Our ancestors believed that a man should eat a lot. If he eats little, he is either sick or weak. Indeed, a man spends more energy than a woman, respectively, he needs more food to eat. Unfortunately, in our understanding of this situation takes on an entirely unhealthy frame. The man is eating too much, and an overabundance of calories over time transforms into the fatty tissue in the abdomen and thighs, which ultimately negatively affect potency.
Myths about prostate
A huge amount of commercial involuntarily formed the view that, after 40 years a man will certainly have problems with the prostate gland. Moreover, prostatitis necessarily reduces the potency and even cause prostate cancer! In fact, everything is not so sad. Poor potency is often a psychological problem, and has nothing to do with the prostate, and the risk of tumors in prostate is just an unconfirmed speculation.

To date, prostatitis can be successfully treated, especially when it comes to the initial stage of the disease. But even in advanced cases, modern medicine allows to achieve a significant improvement.
Size of manhood
The dimensions of the penis are a sore subject, which concerns men more than women. Viewing pornography and conversations with friends about sex often form the male inadequate self-esteem. In this regard, some of them are even embarrassed to use urinals or visit the shared showers. In fact, the length of the soft penis does not say anything about its length in erection. The most impressive penis can slightly change its length during erection, while a small penis can significantly increase in size. The length of the erect penis can range from 7 to 26 centimeters, and its average length is considered to be 13-17 centimeters.

 Myths about masturbation
The dangers of male masturbation for health were mentioned in the 18th century, when doctors began to study the phenomenon from a medical point of view. In particular, in the book of the Swiss physician Tissot SA states that masturbation is nearly always leads to blindness. In addition, some reputable doctors claimed that masturbation can lead to a change in orientation. For this reason, teenagers and young people at that time were forbidden to masturbate.

Today, the experience of masturbation have about 96% of men, and modern doctors know that this does not lead to blindness or affects orientation. Moreover, it is even useful in some cases. For example, during a long period of abstinence, especially among adolescents, masturbation can help relieve sexual tension, and prevents the occurrence of stagnation in the prostate.
