Many women who seek medical attention due to dysmenorrhea, vaginal spasms, and frigidity experience varying degrees of constipation; This phenomenon is also present in men with painful ejaculation, premature ejaculation, and non ejaculation. Interestingly, when chronic constipation alleviates or disappears, sexual disorders also decrease or disappear. According to research, there is indeed a certain connection between chronic constipation and sexual dysfunction. Because chronic constipation not only affects the rectum for a long time, causing unstable anal pressure and tight perianal contraction, but also affects the function of pelvic tissues and organs such as the bladder and uterus.
Pelvic muscles are stimulated by chronic constipation, and anal muscles, deep transverse muscles of the perineum, urethrovaginal sphincter, etc. can have spasticity. Over time, these muscle groups may experience malnutrition and excessive relaxation. These muscle groups are closely related to the normal functioning of penile erection, ejaculation, and vaginal function. Especially the pubococcygeal muscle, some people call it a sexual muscle. It is a broad ligament, such as a tense hammock, that supports the organs in the pelvis and vaginal muscles. The pubococcygeal muscle often relaxes or becomes abnormally tense, resulting in decreased vaginal sensitivity and decreased sexual pleasure. Sometimes it can cause urinary incontinence. Therefore, when sexual desire decreases or dysfunction occurs, please pay attention to whether there is chronic constipation. Develop a habit of eating more fresh vegetables and regularly defecating to prevent chronic constipation.
