Men's sexual health

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Sexual health is important for a man's well-being, whether you're trying to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections or you're worried about erectile dysfunction or other problems related to men's sexual health.

For some men, worries about penis size top the list of their sexual health concerns. However, you're probably more normal than you think — and penis-enlargement products and procedures aren't likely to be effective and may have risks.

As you get older, understand common changes in men's sexual health — and how to maintain a healthy and enjoyable sex life at any age.
