What every Man needs to know about Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the current medical terminology used to describe the horrible (and often unnecessary), nightmarish inability for a man to get and or maintain his erection at a strength, intensity, and potency sufficient to engage in sexual intercourse. Back in the dark ages of the 20th century, medicine referred to this unnecessary situation as impotence.
Studies indicate that occasional ED can be commonly experienced at some point in a man’s life time. A lot of guy’s experience ED during times of extreme stress, personal or professional. However, regular and repeated bouts of ED may indicate some deeper health problems that need treatment.
It’s true, not all of the cornucopia of a man’s sexual challenges are caused by ED & there does exist other equally horrible (and likely also equally unnecessary) types of male sexual dysfunction that include:
- premature ejaculation
- delayed or absent ejaculation
- lack of enjoyment in sex
- lack of interest in sex
- inability to have sex more than even once per session and severe psychological ramifications to a man’s self-psyche.
How Common Is Erectile Dysfunction in America?
The literature indicates that at any given time as many as 30 million American men are affected by ED and according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). In America as well as other western nations, the incidence and prevalence of ED seem to be increasing in men as they age. And actually, a large portion of the literature suggest that sexual dysfunction in general and an increase in ED (which is happening) itself isn’t even supposed to happen at the rate and velocity that it is happening to guys just like you.
Although diminished male performance may increase with age, ED is not an inevitable consequence of aging nor is it supposed to be a forgone conclusion of your existence. Although it may be more difficult to get an erection as a man traverses the level of time, it does not necessarily mean you will develop ED. In general, the healthier a man is using nutritional modulation, vitamin and mineral strategies and possibly Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), the better his sexual function.
How Do Erections Even Happen?
An erection is the result of a complex synergy of systems including increased blood flow to the penis. This enhanced blood flow is usually stimulated by either sexual thoughts or direct contact. As a man becomes sexually excited, muscles in the penis relax. This relaxation allows for increased blood flow through the penile arteries. This blood fills two chambers inside the penis called the corpora cavernosa and as those chambers fill with blood, the penis grows rigid. Erection ends when the muscles contract and the accumulated blood can flow out through the penile veins.
ED can occur because of problems at any stage of the erection process. For example, the penile arteries may be too damaged to open properly and allow blood in.
The potential causes of ED are numerous. They include:
- cardiovascular disease
- abnormal blood sugar
- insulin resistance
- leptin resistance
- relationship problems
- drug use
- alcohol use
These factors can work in isolation or combination.
