Q:I am 72 years of age and pass urine frequently. I don’t have sugar and still have sex potency. I participate in sex every 4-5 days but whenever I do, I have to go to urine another 2-3 times more. My friend told that due to weakness in sex nerves I am suffering and he already stopped having sex to be free from troubles. Should I stop having sex?
Ans: Even if one have sex in old age they will not suffer from any diseases or nerve weakness. If one has sex potency, they can continue sex at any age. Urine problem is due to increase in prostate glands size. This is known as BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia) and 60-60 year aged people will suffer from this problem. BPH in initial stage can be controlled through medicines. People having BPH problem when participate in sex may go to urine more as prostate gland gets congested but there won’t be any problem in sex. Your friend’s advice is wrong. You can consult doctor regarding BPS.
