The Male Sexual Organ

March 19, 2016

The male sexual organ also happens to be part of the male reproductive system because it sort of acts as the delivery system for the sperm that fertilizes the egg of the female.  The male sexual organ when viewed from the outside, you will see the penis and the testes which is covered sac-like skin called the scrotum.  The penis is the primary sexual organ as it used for vaginal penetration and the testes is the primary reproductive organ where sperm and testosterone are produced.

The penis can both expand and contract.  This is because it is made from soft and spongy tissue.  When men become sexually stimulated, their penis becomes hard and erect because blood is being pumped inside two cavities of the penis called corpora cavernosum.  The erect state of the penis is necessary for vaginal penetration which is important in sexual intercourse.  Without an erection, the penis will not be able to break through the opening of the vagina.

The Two Types of Finasteride Dosage

March 2, 2016

Finasteride is a drug that was originally developed to help men fight against benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) which is basically an abnormal enlargement of the prostate.  Although the condition is not necessarily malignant, it does however create discomfort to those who have the disorder.  The original finasteride dosage was 5mg.  This finasteride dosage was given to participants during the testing of the drug.  Those who took part in the clinical testing reported having encountered a side effect.  However, instead of a negative type of consequences from using the 5mg finasteride dosage given to them, they reported of one that is more positive than negative.  The side effect certain participants got from using the 5mg finasteride dosage was the improvement in the hair loss status of those who had male pattern baldness.

The cure for hair loss has always been beyond reach.  After all, there is really no cure for this particular condition, but simply more of like a treatment.  In treating hair loss, a 1mg finasteride dosage is used instead of the 5mg finasteride dosage.  The creators of the drug took notice of the reports given during the drug’s testing phase which is why they did their research not only to learn what is in their drug that contributes to such hair loss treatment, but also to determine the proper finasteride dosage needed for treating this particular condition.
