A potent fear for many men is that they may eventually develop erectile dysfunction. This problem does affect millions of men every year, but it is not necessarily something with which you must live if you ever experience it. Today, there are many ways to work around it, to treat it and even to rid yourself of it through lifestyle changes or psychological help. If you believe that you may be afflicted with this condition, we offer several different treatment options, and we strive to help you understand this condition.
What Is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction is another name for impotence and is the problem that occurs when a man fails to get an erection or is unable to have sexual intercourse due to his inability to get or maintain a full erection. If you have this problem, you may find it difficult or impossible to get an erection. You may also notice that while you can get an erection, you cannot keep it long enough to have satisfying intercourse. You may also have less sexual pleasure than you once did. Erectile dysfunction, also called ED, is diagnosed when any of these problems happen routinely but is not seen to be a problem when these problems occur only rarely.
What Causes It?
ED may have many different causes depending on your personal health and concerns. Sometimes, psychological concerns may be the main source of problems. Excessive stress or worry may make it impossible for you to achieve an erection. However, this can also be tied to physical issues, such as with problems in getting enough blood into the penis or with nerve problems when there are not proper internal signals during sexual arousal.
How Can It Be Treated?
It is important to see a doctor who specializes in treating erectile dysfunction so that you can get quick and thorough help. When more in-depth treatments are needed, your practitioner may turn to a medication to help you feel arousal at the proper times. There are several other options you can try before needing to turn to surgery. Our goal is to help you overcome ED without the need for surgery.
Erectile dysfunction afflicts nearly every man at some point in his life either for a physical or a psychological reason.
