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
  • Diabetes
  • Damage from cancer or surgery
  • Injuries
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship problems
  • Drug use
  • Alcohol use
  • Smoking

These factors can work singly or in combination.

How Do Men Get an Erection?

As men age, testosterone levels naturally decline. Unlike menopause in women, which occurs at a specific point in time, after her last menstrual period, andropause in men occurs more slowly over time. If not addressed, age-related low testosterone can lead to the following:

  • Increased risk of heart attack and stroke
  • Increased risk of Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Osteoporosis – poor bone density and increased risk for fracture
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Stiffness in muscles and joints
  • Decreased libido
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Poor exercise performance
  • Cognitive decline
  • Depression
  • Increased fatigue and irritability
  • Decreased zest for life

However, testosterone therapy has proven to reduce, and in many cases, eliminate the debilitating symptoms of male menopause.

Common Questions About Erectile Dysfunction

The medical dictionaries will define erectile dysfunction as “the persistent inability to achieve or maintain an erection that is satisfactory for sexual intercourse…” Technically speaking, the condition needs to be “persistent” or chronic to be officially diagnosed as ED. But, from a practical standpoint, the definition is not so simple. Male sexual wellness is more a matter of degrees, ranging from occasional difficulty in obtaining an erection to a complete inability for the penis to become erect. Some men can live just fine with an occasional performance issue. For others, even one bout of ED can be devastating.
No. ED doesn't have to be a part of getting older. While it is true that older men may need more stimulation (such as stroking and touching) to achieve an erection, they should still be able to get an erection and enjoy sex.
Thanks to the introduction of the popular oral ED medications such as Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra, ED treatment has come out of the shadows, and many more men than ever are enjoying a healthy active sex life. But, not every man can take these drugs, and there are alternative treatments available. Alternative treatments include:
  • Penis pumps and vacuum devices
  • Penile surgery
  • Penile injections, such as Trimix
  • Platelet Rice Plasm treatments –the P-shot
  • Acoustical wave therapies
  • Hormonal replacement therapies
Each of these treatments have their particular benefits and drawbacks. A complete medical history, and lifestyle evaluation, will help determine which is right for anyone particular patient.
Yes, because ED is usually caused by impaired blood flow, it could be a sign of a more serious underlying health condition such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol. This is why despite maybe feeling embarrassed, it is critical to see a doctor if you have persistent ED.
While ED is more common in older men, the truth is men of any age can have erectile difficulties. In younger men, ED more likely stems from some kind of stress-related event--changing jobs, starting a new relationship, moving--that’s affecting them mentally and emotionally. A younger man’s ED could also be caused by a prescription medication they are taking for something else, like an anti-anxiety drug.
