Erectile Dysfunction and Why You Should get Treatment for it.
Erectile dysfunction (ED), more commonly called impotence, is a condition in which a man can’t achieve or maintain an erection for sexual intercourse. ED affects over 30 million men in the United States and is typically a common occurrence as men age.
Many men feel embarrassed to mention their problem with ED. Some men think that ED is untreatable while others believe it can go untreated. Truth is that it’s a treatable condition and may be a sign of additional health problems. With help, most men are able to find a treatment that works for them.
What causes erectile dysfunction?
A number of causes can increase the risk of ED. In order to achieve and maintain an erection,
the brain, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, and hormones must work together. A problem with any one of those factors can disrupt the normal function of the penis. Most commonly, ED causes include but are not limited to heart disease, anxiety, diabetes, obesity or an enlarged prostate gland.
For those who experience ED infrequently, it’s likely the cause may be a result from stress, fatigue, medication side affects, or even emotional distress.
Why should you get treatments for erectile dysfunction?
In nearly 75 percent of ED cases, there’s a physical cause. It’s important that you check with your doctor if you are experiencing ED. Here are two reasons why:
- It’s Treatable – There are multiple ways to treat ED. From improving your lifestyle to taking a prescribed medication, injections, surgery and special devices to boost blood flow, there are many options to consider. Be wary of any medications for sale online as you do not know the sourcing, and it may not be the right medication or dosage for you.
- Linked to Other Health Conditions – It’s possible that your ED is related to serious health conditions like heart disease, diabetes, or high blood pressure. The sooner your doctor discovers the cause, the quicker it can be treated, which will ultimately benefit your sex life.
