Erectile Dysfunction is sexual disorder in men in which man is unable to attain or maintain erections for satisfactory intercourse. It may result from psychological or physical causes. There are many possible causes of erectile dysfunction, including stress and emotional problems, such as anxiety or depression; physical problems, such as injury or prescription medications side effects; and medical conditions, such as diabetes or low testosterone. If you have erectile dysfunction, you may not be able to get or keep an erection long enough to have satisfactory sex.
The most common physical causes of erectile dysfunction are related to circulation and blood pressure. These conditions include atherosclerosis, hypertension, and high cholesterol. These conditions narrow the blood vessels and reduce blood flow to the penis. In addition, men with low levels of testosterone often experience erectile dysfunction.
The primary symptom of erectile dysfunction is the inability to develop or maintain an erection during sexual performance. A man with erectile dysfunction may also experience other symptoms, such as diminished sexual desire or libido.
Erectile dysfunction can be treated with a number of prescription medications, such as Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra. These drugs work by increasing blood flow to the penis, which allows men to develop and maintain an erection. In addition, there are a number of non-prescription treatments, such as vacuum devices and penile injections, which can be effective in treating erectile dysfunction.
