What is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction (often called impotence) is when a man is regularly unable to maintain a strong enough erection to perform sexually. The word ‘regularly’ is key here; all men will experience occasional problems in the bedroom. Requiring treatment for erectile dysfunction means you repeatedly face this issue without any apparent reason.
The underlying cause of impotence can be physical, psychological or a combination of both. Factors that can contribute to erectile dysfunction include:
- High blood pressure
- Alcohol, drugs and some medications
- Relationship issues
- Sexual anxiety
- Stress and depression.
Keep in mind that erectile discrimination is unpredictable and does not discriminate; it can affect men of all ages and lifestyles, and it can occur during multiple stages of your life as your health and habits change.
How can this be treated?
Your personalised treatment program will depend largely on the causes that you and your doctor identify. For example, if a health condition or alcohol abuse are leading to your impotence, addressing this will be a major component of your treatment. Similarly, if the cause of your erectile dysfunction is psychological, your doctor will likely recommend some form of counselling or even relationship therapy for you and your sexual partner.
When it comes to impotence drugs, stay safe by only taking the medication prescribed to you by a professional. Tablets online might tempt you with cheap prices and big promises, but these can be unvalidated or even dangerous.
What results can I expect?
With the right treatment, your erections should become stronger and you should be able to maintain them long enough to achieve satisfaction for both you and your sexual partner. This will enable you to enjoy more fulfilling sexual experiences.
