Low Libido- Low sexual desire causes disinterest in sexual activities, which is due to loss of libido. This happens due to the psychological issue that includes depression, anxiety, prolonged stress and some physical factors like heavy medications or chronic illness.

Premature Ejaculation- Premature Ejaculation is a prevalent sexual disorder that can be treated. In this men ejaculate early and lose pleasure while intercourse. This is caused due to performance anxiety or pressure.

Erectile Dysfunction- Erectile Dysfunction is the most common problem, prevalent in men. This is a problem with getting an erection during intercourse. This is caused primarily due to psychological factors. It is highly advisable to consult a doctor in such cases to maximize sexual life. Erectile dysfunction can be caused due to performance pressure or anxiety, depression, nervous disorders, chronic illness, stress and diseases that affect the blood flow.

Other ejaculation disorders include retrograde ejaculation and inhibited ejaculation. In retrograde ejaculation, the semen instead of coming out goes back to the bladder, whereas, in inhibited ejaculation, the process is extremely slow. This can be caused due to post-traumatic stress disorder and men with diabetic neuropathy are more inclined to suffer from retrograde ejaculation.

Most of these problems require psychological aid and can also be cured with supplementing hormones or mechanical aids.

World Oral Health Day 2021: Importance and significance https://www.healthsamachar.in/world-oral-health-day-2021-importance-and-significance/ Fri, 12 Mar 2021 15:26:55 +0000 https://www.healthsamachar.in/?p=511 oral health day 2021

World Oral Health Day is celebrated every year on 20 March and is organised by FDI World Dental Federation. It highlights the importance of optimal oral health and recognises the significance of good oral hygiene practice amongst children and adults. On this day many campaigns and events are organised to celebrate the day, backed with a theme that sends out a substantial public message regarding oral health.

The World Oral Health Day was first originally declared in 2017, on 12 September, marking the birthday of FDI founder Dr Charles Godon, but the campaign was not fully activated until 2013 after which the date was changed to 20 March.

World Oral Health Day Importance

People around the world suffer from all sorts of oral diseases, which can be avoided by educating or creating awareness by offering the right knowledge. FDI encourages all government and non-government organisations, along with media to participate in national and global activities that would help in improving the overall oral health.

World Oral Health Day Theme

Last year, the World Oral Health Day theme was “Unite for Mouth Health” which focused on how one should take care of the oral health and body. This year, the World Oral Health Day 2021 theme for the next three years sends out a simple message “Be Proud Of Your Mouth”, which in other words means to take good care and value your oral hygiene.

Oral diseases are the most common non-communicable disease that affects people throughout their life, which causes discomfort, pain, disfigurement and sometimes death. Oral cancer happens to be one of the top three of all cancers in some Asian-Pacific countries and in most of the low and middle-income countries, the demand for oral health care is beyond the capacities of health care systems.

All in all, oral health can’t be ignored and is one of the key indicators of overall wellbeing, health and quality of life.
