Male impotency can be a distressing condition for any man regardless of his age or physical condition. But male impotency can be treated and cured so long as the man discusses his condition with his doctor. There are many reasons why men experience male impotency. Some of those reasons are often out of the man’s control but still treatable, while other causes are the result of lifestyle choices that can be altered to reverse the negative results. To help men understand this condition, it is a good idea to develop an understanding of some of the common causes and how they can be treated.
The lifestyle choices that can cause male impotency include smoking, drinking and an unhealthy diet. Cigarette or cigar smoking and drinking alcohol affect a man’s blood pressure which can lead to male impotency. Taking illegal drugs will also have a negative effect on several parts of a man’s circulatory system that will lead to male impotency. Overeating or eating unhealthy foods can result in high blood pressure which can cause erectile dysfunction. Reversing all of these unhealthy lifestyle choices will eventually help to improve a man’s virility and reduce the chances of erectile dysfunction.
In some cases, male impotency may be a temporary condition caused by a surgical procedure of a series of medications prescribed by a doctor. While a man is recovering from a minor or major surgery, he may experience male impotency as a side effect. The doctor will let the man know when the side effects will wear off and when sexual activity can be resumed. Some medications, such as high blood pressure medication, tend to cause male impotency. If prescribed medication is causing the problem, then the doctor will need to determine if erectile dysfunction medication is appropriate or if the medication would cause further complications.
Other potential causes of male impotency include hormonal imbalances or psychological problems. A doctor can diagnose whether or not male impotency is being cause by a lack of testosterone or some other chemical problem, and he can prescribe medication to remedy the situation. If male impotency is being cause by psychological problems such as low self-esteem or depression, then a doctor may be able to offer advice or treatment that can help restore a man’s confidence and energy. With some of these conditions, it can just be a matter of time that helps to restore a man’s confidence or one positive event that can suddenly improve a man’s outlook on life and his sexual virility.
