You Do Not Have To Suffer The Distress And Embarrassment Of Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile Dysfunction, sometimes called “impotence,” is the repeated inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse.
Statically speaking, 50% of all men, have experienced erectile dysfunction at some time or another. After age 40, nearly 40% have to deal with the condition, and by the age of 70, about 70% of men experience some form of ED, usually accompanied by a loss of libido or sex drive.
In the last few decades, the number of men suffering from ED has been increasing. Statistics aside, the truth is, every man probably has had trouble achieving an erection at one time or another. Any disorder that causes injury to the nerves or impairs blood flow in the penis has the potential to cause ED. Many common everyday issues, from stress and anxiety to alcohol consumption, could contribute to your ability to achieve or maintain an erection.
Incidence increases with age but it is not an inevitable part of aging. Erectile Dysfunction is treatable at any age. Thanks to the introduction of well-known oral ED medication, and other treatment, ED no longer has the stigma it once had, and more men are seeking treatment, and enjoying a healthy sex life at almost any age!
How Do We Treat Erectile Dysfunction?
Today, we have many ways to treat ED. For some men, making a few healthy lifestyle changes is all that is needed to solve the problem. Quitting smoking, losing excess weight, and increasing physical activity may help some men regain sexual function.
Cutting back on any drugs with harmful side effects is considered next. Psychotherapy and behavior modifications in selected patients has been helpful. In rare cases, surgery involving veins or arteries may be considered. However, most men can be treated with a simple medication that relaxes muscles and increases blood flow to the penis.
How Do Men Get an Erection?
To understand how to best treat ED, let’s look at how erections are achieved in the first place. An erection is the result of increased blood flow into the penis. Blood flow is usually stimulated by either sexual thoughts or intimate contact.
When a man becomes sexually excited, muscles in the penis relax. This relaxation allows for increased blood flow through the penile arteries. This blood fills two chambers inside the penis called the corpora cavernosa. As the chambers fill with blood, the penis grows rigid. Erection ends when the muscles contract and the accumulated blood can flow out through the penile veins.
ED can occur because of problems at any stage of the erection process.
What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?
Blood flow through the arteries and veins of the penis is essential to achieving and maintaining an erection. It stands to reason then, that any disease or disorder that impairs blood flow, can influence ED. Poor blood flow can occur because of the normal breakdown of blood vessels that occur as men age. ED can also be caused by:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Damage from cancer or surgery
- Relationship problems
- Drug use
- Alcohol use
These factors can work singly or in combination.
