A List of Reasons of What Causes Impotence

As much as eighty-five percent of all male impotence has a purely physical cause. If the cause can be eliminated, the Impotence can, too. Determining the cause, however, can be a complicated, even expensive, process. A thorough physical exam, including blood work, can be a vital starting point. Finding out that there is a medical origin to the problem of chronic erectile dysfunction can forestall months of soul-searching and frustration.

A major cause of Impotence is malfunction of the circulatory system. This can be a result of a number of different disease states. One of the most prevalent is diabetes. It is reported that as many as sixty percent of diabetic men experience Impotence because of the damage done to their blood vessels and nerves by their disease. Another condition that affects blood circulation is atherosclerosis. Because blood movement is hindered by clogged and/or hardened vessels, engorgement of the penis becomes difficult, if not impossible.

Impotence resulting from circulatory malfunction can also be the unfortunate consequence of physical damage to pertinent nerves or blood vessels. Surgery performed in a manís pelvic region can have dire consequences if it includes working too close to the nerves that control the blood flow and retention to the penis. Prostate surgery is one such procedure that involves direct contact with this set of nerves.

Certain prescription drugs can make achieving or maintaining an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse difficult. Smoking and heavy alcohol consumption have also been noted as contributing to Erectile dysfunction (ED). Consumption of unfermented soy products has been reported to have an emasculating effect on men. Poor physical condition, obesity, and lack of exercise can also be factors in Impotence.

Certainly the first thing to consider when dealing with Impotence or chronic Erectile dysfunction is the overall health of the individual. A healthy lifestyle which includes a nutritious diet and moderate exercise will have the most long-lasting, beneficial effect on sexual performance. A man who is facing serious health challenges will not benefit from devices such as penis pumps (ED pumps). His sex life will only be enhanced by improved health.
