In this blog article, we are going to look at the topic of Erectile Dysfunction; the causes, the symptoms to look for and how it is treated.
Erectile Dysfunction is a condition where the man experiences difficulty in getting or maintaining an erection. It can be a very frustrating and embarrassing condition for the man to deal with, and can often cause problems in relationships.
There can be a number of different causes for erectile dysfunction, including physical and psychological factors. Some of the most common physical causes include:
– Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries)
– High blood pressure
– Neurological conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease
– Certain medications, including antidepressants, antihistamines and blood pressure medications
There can also be a number of psychological factors that can contribute to erectile dysfunction, such as:
– Low self esteem
The symptoms of erectile dysfunction can vary from man to man, but typically include difficulty in getting or maintaining an erection, a decrease in libido and problems with ejaculation.
There are a number of treatments for erectile dysfunction available, including medication, surgery and counselling. It is important to discuss the best treatment options with your doctor, who will be able to advise you on the most appropriate treatment for you.
