What to do About Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to obtain or maintain an erection sufficient for normal intercourse. An erection is achieved through a combination of blood vessel, nerve, and hormonal functions, usually triggered by some form of stimulation to the brain. There are many things that can interfere with this process. A few are psychological, most of them are physical.

In determining the cause of erectile dysfunction in a man’s life, many considerations should be taken into account. The psychological aspect should not be ignored, though it can often be ruled out through observation. Fear, or lack of confidence, is certainly an issue for some men. Guilt or memories of past abuse may also short-circuit the process. If psychological issues are the culprit in a man’s Erectile dysfunction, prayer, counseling, or self-help books are valid avenues toward finding a solution.

The occasional episode of erectile failure is considered normal. However, if Erectile dysfunction becomes the norm, it is considered true impotence. Although some men may be able to benefit from a mechanical solution (i.e., penis pumps, “cock rings”) a sober investigation into the physical health of a man under 50 would be recommended, as Impotence in this age range is often a symptom of serious health issues. Men who suffer from diseases that affect circulation such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases often suffer from Erectile dysfunction. Prostate surgery can cause Impotence by damaging nerves that control blood flow to the penis. Many prescription medications list Erectile dysfunction as a side-effect.

Erectile dysfunction is often a side effect of the process of aging. As they age, men experience a decline in the frequency of interest in sexual activity. They also generally note that it takes longer to achieve full arousal and satisfaction than in their younger days. This is, perhaps, due to the decrease in testosterone circulating through their bodies. Supplements like DHEA may be useful in helping the body produce testosterone as well as other important adrenal hormones. Older men would probably not do well to attempt to use ED pumps as this may accidentally drain the already dwindling sexual energy.
