Analysing the Determinants of Male Coital Difficulties among Attendees of the Gynae Clinic at a Tertiary Health Center in North-Central Nigeria

Background: Male sexual or coital problems are one of the factors that contribute to infertility in couples seeking fertility, as low coital frequency can result. Poor sexual experience or attitudes, low self-esteem, emotional problems, or sexual harassment may all contribute to coital or sexual difficulties.

Aims/Objectives: Over a two-year span, assess the causes of male sexual or coital difficulties among couples attending the BSUTH infertility clinic in Makurdi.

Methodology: This was a cross-sectional analysis involving all males who consented to participate in the infertility clinic at Benue State University Teaching Hospital (BSUTH). The findings were presented in simple proportions after a pretested standardised questionnaire was administered and evaluated with the statistical kit for social sciences (version 23.0).

Male coital problems were caused by a number of causes, according to the findings. Male erectile dysfunction was the most common, accounting for 33 (32.4%), vaginismus 11 (10.8%), penile pain 14 (13.7%), weak female partner answer 8 (7.8%), and extreme dyspareunia 18%. (17.1 percent ).

Conclusion: Coital problems as a result of infrequent sexual exposure are a major cause of infertility among males attending the BSUTH Makurdi infertility clinic. As a result, when evaluating infertility couples, attempts should be made to analyse these factors in order to minimise the impact.
