What is Erectile Dysfunction?
ED or Impotence is a common condition that affects a man’s ability to initiate, achieve or maintain an erection. Approximately, 40% of men experience this and other sexual performance issues by age 40. This percentage increases by 10% every decade.
What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?
Diseases that could affect and cause ED are heart disease, kidney disease, vascular disease, diabetes, cancer of the prostate, depression, and others. Remember, ED by itself is not considered dangerous.
ED manifests and can occur at any age but is more typical in men over the age of 40. There are many factors that affect arousal which is why most if not all men can experience and have experienced ED at least once. The body’s hormones, brain, heart, nervous system, and emotions must work together for male arousal during sexual situations.
Why Get Treated?
A man suffering from ED can experience some or all of the following:
• Difficulty or trouble initiating or getting an erection
• Difficulty or trouble maintaining or keeping an erection
• Reduced or lack of sexual desire
Because ED can manifest due to a number of factors ranging from the basic (one glass of wine too many) to the complex (heart disease or systematic vascular disease), experts recommend that men suffering with ED consult with a physician that specializes in men’s sexual health for a diagnosis and treatment.
