Common Questions & Answers About Erectile Dysfunction
What is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile Dysfunction, or ED, is a condition affecting a man’s ability to achieve and sustain or maintain an erection or arousal during sexual intercourse. Though the condition itself is not considered dangerous during current times, ED is associated with systemic vascular disease, heart conditions, renal failure, prostate cancer, depression, and other more serious conditions. Therefore, experts generally recommend that men suffering from Erectile Dysfunction consult with a medical professional for treatment.
What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?
Though the rate of men experiencing ED increases with age, Erectile Dysfunction can affect men of every age. Like your favorite muscle car, male arousal depends on many systems operating together: the brain, nervous system, cardiovascular system, hormones, and even emotions all play a role in stimulating and exciting men in sexual situations. This means there are many contributing factors and causes, meaning the condition can and often does affect every man at one time or another.
How Common is ED?
ED is common, affecting as many as 50% of all men age 40 and above and this percentage increases as men get older. If you believe you are suffering from ED, you are not alone and should not be nervous to discuss it. Always remember that there are millions of other men who are in the same position and that treatment options are available.
What are the Signs and Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction?
Signs and symptoms of ED include:
- Trouble getting an erection
- Trouble maintaining an erection
- Lack of or reduced sexual desire
Because these symptoms can be caused by a range of circumstances, from the basic (too much wine at a party) to the complex (heart disease or systemic vascular disease), it is generally recommended that any man experiencing recurrent Erectile Dysfunction seek the advice of a qualified medical professional.
What Treatment Options Exist for ED?
Since the situations and conditions vary pertaining to the cause of ED, there are also a wide range of treatment options. Some treatments are simple and direct, including medications or stress relief; others require more serious conditions to be managed as part of a more comprehensive health plan administered by a general practitioner.
