It would seem that if the increased potency in men, which is good. As there are drugs that are created to enhance the male power, and perhaps soon, even if they include an iron, he will tell about the miraculous capabilities of the pen from the tail of the Arctic owls to improve erection.
Let's understand that is the norm, and where pathology.
Priapism is not an indicator of a strong potency
The term "persistent erection" is sometimes perceived as increased potency. Again, there are nuances. If after taking any stimulant drugs you have developed a painful persistent prolonged (40 min.) an erection which persists after the Commission of a sexual act is priapism, a condition that requires urgent access to medical care.
Increased potency, due to pathological changes in the male body, able to cause a lot of trouble.
Increased potency: norm or pathology
For the behavior of men, including sexual, is responsible hormone testosterone. It is in the blood in the bound and free state (2%). Some young healthy representatives of a strong half testosterone in the blood increased without any diseases.
The reasons for increased potency
The increase in testosterone during pubertal period
This usually happens to boys in puberty that is not indicative of a pathology, provided that the hormonal changes are not started too early.
Nature prepares the transformation of a boy into a man, take a few years, testosterone in young men perform their work with a young man the following will happen:

Usually at this age, the young man begins to lead a regular sex life and any problems, with high libido and good potency, does not occur. Behavioral problems peculiar to adolescence, are also left in the past.
When increased potency in adult men normal
Reasons increase potency in adult men quite diverse. It's time to talk about the sexual Constitution.
A high level of testosterone does not mean "pathologically elevated" and does not require any correction.
All men it is different, it depends on the content of testosterone in the blood. Is "princeps testosterone" men, they are characterized by the following features:

These qualities are inherited from male ancestors, which is a feature of the development and pathology.
It is quite another thing when an adult established man suddenly appeared spontaneous erections of place and out of place, changed character, appeared emotional instability, aggression, impulsiveness, the desire for sexual contacts with different partners, the desire to use drugs and alcohol, gambling, etc. don't be surprised, but this is the reason for the examination.
What pathological causes contribute to an increase in testosterone in boys and men
- Adrenogenital syndrome – a congenital disorder caused by dysfunction of the adrenal diagnosed in a young age.
- The disease and syndrome Itsenko–Kushinga, the reason of tumor formation in the pituitary gland.
- A tumor of the adrenal cortex.
- Hormone resistentia to androgens.
- Prostate cancer.
- Malignant tumors of testicles.
- The use of steroid hormones for muscle building.
A congenital condition resulting in the increase of testosterone in the blood, is diagnosed by the characteristic signs of early puberty at an early age, pediatric endocrinologists and geneticists.
Tumor pathology in an adult male long-term can not be shown.
What tests may be required
The first thing to perform instrumental diagnosis, it is necessary to take a blood level of testosterone in the blood. To take the analysis to obtain reliable results, it is necessary to approach competently.
How to donate blood

First, the question is asked, and whether you are taking any dietary Supplements or drugs that stimulate the production of testosterone. If the answer is positive, in the best case, the abolition of the means over time, testosterone levels will drop to normal. In the worst case, long-term uncontrolled administration of steroid hormones, male sex gland atrophy (testicular atrophy after a cycle of steroids), and you will need lifelong hormone replacement therapy, that's just the right dosage already calculate doctor to achieve normal levels of testosterone in the blood.

The young man hyperandrogenism may develop due to poor lifestyle, prolonged stressful situations, a small sleep duration.
It is noteworthy that the same conditions at the age of representative of a strong half will provoke, on the contrary, a decrease in the level of testosterone.
How to decrease high potency
If high potency is a consequence of the youth games of the hormones or the condition from the lack of regular sex life in an adult male, no tumours pathology and laboratory not detected, let us give you a few tips to sexual desire bothered less.

Sport and learning – that's priority areas in the fight against teenage hypersexuality, and the realization that soon it was all gone.
What to feed an adult male, to reduce the potency
- Oil (especially linen).
- Coffee and tea
- Pomegranates, apples, grapes.

All the above foods are rich in phytoestrogens, which can neutralize the overabundance of testosterone and reduce the potency. Sweets, pastries, potatoes (rich in starch), meat for 2-3 weeks severely limit or remove entirely.
A little about the beer. It is believed that the drink is rich in phytoestrogens, so 1-2 times a week 1-2 mug you can drink. Note that the abuse of beer to reduce the potency of the unknown, which will develop forward: chronic alcoholism or impotence.
Increased potency after drinking and hangover
Very often the question arises why the potency is increased after drinking alcohol. Actually, it's all very individual and depends on a number of factors:
- how much is consumed,
- the strength of an alcoholic beverage,
- how often are drinking,
- original condition and well-being of men.
In small doses alcohol enhances sexual desire, emancipation and improvement in potency. If drunk large amounts of alcohol beverages, except alcohol intoxication, talking about something other conduct will not, because a sober mind, then a drunk will never be.
The hangover, on the background of poisoning with products of disintegration of alcohol, triggered mechanisms of survival. Due to increased production of neurotransmitters, which are the provokers of sexual desire, in men and increased libido.
Draw your attention to one of vegetable broth, drink it to reduce the potency, and also has a detoxication effect.

Why not leave it as it is
In fact, we are not talking about how to degrade the potency of the man, for which its status is normal. Pathologically elevated (!) the level of androgens in the blood leads to the development of adverse health conditions:

- changes in the skin – the emergence of "teenage" acne,
- psychoemotional instability, loss of the ability of concentration.
- an increased risk of developing diabetes.
If the increased potency is caused by a pathological process, there are medications for treatment, or performing surgery to eliminate the tumor pathology.
The most important thing in this situation – not to lose time.
