Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction or impotence is a common condition. A man who is impotent is persistently unable to achieve or maintain an erection for satisfactory sexual intercourse.  Millions of men have erectile dysfunction or ED. Most men experience ED during their sexual life. Professional help is needed when ED becomes a persistent problem.  It can be caused by many factors including medication, psychological and physical factors.

Age: At age 40, approximately 40% of men are affected. The rate increases to nearly 70% in men aged 70 years. The prevalence of complete ED increases from 5% to 15% as age increases from 40 to 70 years. Age is the variable most strongly associated with ED.

Weight: Excess weight, particularly if it is concentrated in the abdomen (the spare tire), interferes with erectile function. Estimates of the total number of American men who suffer from ED range from 15-30 million, according to the National Institutes of Health. If you look down at your belly and you can't see your penis. That's a huge problem.

Blood Flow: A decrease in the blood flow to the penis will affect the quality of erections. The erections will be weak and/or short lasting. Decreased blood flow can be caused by clogged arteries, high blood pressure or pelvic trauma. Men who have clogged arteries in their heart often have the same problem with the arteries that supply the penis with blood.

Medications: Are the leading cause of ED including some that treat depression or high blood pressure.

Psychological: A man's failure to achieve an erection could have originated from alcohol, cigarettes or recreational drugs. If a man continues to fear not being able to have an erection, he may develop persistent psychological impotence.  

Stress:  Marital or job stress, financial worries and other factors can all play a role in starting, maintaining or worsening erectile dysfunction.  

Physical: Can be caused by a disease, injury or an operation and may include: Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Cholesterol deposits in the blood vessels, Nephritis, Liver Disease
