Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis during sexual intercourse. Normally, in the absence of dysfunction, an erection is the result of increased blood flow to the penis. This increased blood flow is usually the result of sexual arousal causing the brain to send signals to the nerves in the penis.
In the case of ED this process does not occur or occurs weakly or sporadically. Thus an erection may not be achieved or only sometimes achieved. Often it does not last and is not strong.
Causes can be divided into physical and psychological categories.
Common physical causes of ED are high blood pressure, diabetes and also low levels of the testosterone hormone. ED is sometimes caused by the side effects of other drugs such as anti-depressants. It can also be caused by unhealthy lifestyle factors such as smoking, excessive consumption of alcohol, bad diet and lack of exercise.
In many cases the causes are not physical or medical but psychological.
Stress, either at the workplace or in the home, has been found to be a major cause of ED. This can create a vicious cycle as failure to satisfy one’s partner creates further relationship stresses and also in many cases damage to the sufferer’s masculine self-image.
In most cases ED is curable. A healthier lifestyle including exercise and proper diet have been found to help, especially for sufferers over the age of 40. Treatment of any underlying medical causes such as diabetes or high blood pressure will also help.
Very effective treatments have been discovered in the form of either prescription or herbal medication. The problem with prescription drugs such as Viagra, Levitra and Cialis is that in many cases men taking these drugs experience serious and unpleasant side effects. These include headache, flushing, blurred vision and nausea.
In contrast, herbal treatments have been found to have far fewer unwanted side effects.
