The prostate is a compound tubuloalveolar exocrine gland of the male reproductive system. The function of the prostate is to secrete a slightly alkaline fluid, milky or white in appearance, that usually constitutes roughly 30% of the volume of the semen, along with spermatozoa and seminal vesicle fluid. There can be complications with your prostate due to enlargement of the organ, cancer, or an infection.
- Enlarged prostate
- Prostate cancer

If you are at an age or point in life where you feel like children aren’t in the cards for you, a vasectomy can be a good procedure to prevent accidental pregnancies from happening.

Erectile dysfunction is a condition that can happen to any man. It is the consistent inability to get or maintain an erection. Inability to do so is considered abnormal and different to other problems, like lack of sexual desire and issues with ejaculation or orgasm. Because erectile dysfunction can cause emotional and relationship problems, many men are afraid to seek help, as it leads to diminished self-esteem. However, this condition is mostly treatable.
Pelvic prolapse is a condition where the muscles, ligaments, and skin around the vagina break down and weaken, which can cause the pelvic organs (such as the uterus, rectum, bladder, urethra, small bowel, or vagina) to fall outside of their normal positions. This condition is mostly associated with old age, especially in women who have muscle and tissue weakened from gravity, loss of estrogen, and the strain of childbirth or surgery.
