It’s natural to put money in the bank, perhaps jewels in a safe deposit box; these are normal ways to protect valuable assets. But a man can’t remove his manhood, one of his very most valuable personal assets, and put it away somewhere. No, he has to practice good male organ protection in a more direct, hands-on way. Of course, maintaining male organ health is one of the biggest male organ protection strategies, and to do that properly, it pays to know some of the enemies from which one is protecting the member.
And in the world of male organ protection, many of the enemies belong to that group known as social diseases. Here are some of the more common ones from which to protect the precious member.
– Gonorrhea. One of the most common social diseases, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports an estimated 1.14 million new cases of gonorrhea per year. In men, gonorrhea can cause infertility and serious infection. As with many social diseases, many people experience no symptoms and so do not know that they have gonorrhea until complications set in. Among the symptoms that CAN (but do not always) occur are pain when urinating, pus at the tip of the manhood, soreness and swelling in the sacks, posterior itching and/or bleeding, swollen lymph nodes in the throat, eye soreness, and joint pain.
– Syphilis. This bacterial infection is another common social disease – one that is usually cured through the use of penicillin, fortunately, but that needs to be caught early to improve the chances of a cure. Syphilis can cause significant damage to the brain, the heart, and other organs and can in some cases lead to death. Symptoms vary but usually begin with a sore where the infection entered the body – the mouth, the posterior, the midsection area.
– Chlamydia. According to the CDC, chlamydia is the most commonly reported social disease in the United States. It is one that often goes undetected because it may not produce symptoms. When symptoms are present, they can include pain when urinating, a discharge of pus from the member, and pain in the sacks. There may also be pain or a discharge in the posterior if a man was infected through posterior sensual activity. In some cases, complications may include infection of the sacks and/or prostate gland, as well as development of a form of arthritis known as Reiter’s syndrome.
– HIV. The human immunodeficiency virus can lead to developing AIDS, a potentially life-threatening condition that seriously affects one’s immune system. Common symptoms, usually appearing 2 to 4 weeks after infection, include those often associated with the flu, such as fever, aches, headaches, joint pains, sore throat, and swollen glands.
With most social diseases, the best way for a sensually active man to avoid infection is through the use of latex protection. While they cannot provide 100 percent protection, they do cut down significantly on the risk of getting many social diseases. People who are at risk of acquiring HIV/AIDS should consult with a doctor about PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis), which, when used properly, can significantly decrease the risk of HIV. Also crucial for a sensually active person is to be tested on a regular basis; many sensual health professionals recommend testing every 3 months so that the chances of detecting a social disease in its early stages is greatly increased.
Knowing one’s enemies helps with male organ protection, as does maintaining regular male organ health. This is aided by regular use of an excellent male organ health oil (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Find an oil that includes a wide range of vitamins, such as A, B5, C, D, and E. Then be sure that the oil also includes alpha lipoic acid, a powerful antioxidant that strengthens manhood skin by fighting unwanted free radicals.
