Every man, at some point in his life, faces a problem with penile erectile dysfunction. In many cases, the problem cures itself on its own and only occurs for a short period of time. Other men experience problems with penile erectile dysfunction at different periods in their lives, but learn how to conquer the problem on their own. The medical term for the condition is impotence, which some refer to as ED or penile erectile dysfunction.
Penile erectile dysfunction causes a man to experience problems having an erection. The problem might occur prior to sexual intercourse, or self-gratification. In some cases, the man loses an erection in the middle of intercourse. Problems with penile erectile dysfunction often cause a combination of problems and occur in many situations. The condition can cause problems in the man’s personal life, including causing stress in his relationship or depression. Many men feel embarrassed about the penile erectile dysfunction problems and do not seek medical help, simply because the men are embarrassed about discussing the condition with their doctor.
In truth though, some of the leading causes of penile erectile dysfunction are causes relating to the man’s life. Some studies found a link between stress and ED. Stress causes an imbalance in the body, which makes it harder to achieve an erection. A man that feels stressed about his personal life or suffers from stress at work is more likely to suffer from penile erectile dysfunction than a man that lives a relatively stress-free life. A man in a new relationship might also feel stressed or nervous about performing and having intercourse with his new partner, which in turn leads to penile erectile dysfunction.
Some men suffer a problem with penile erectile dysfunction because of certain medical conditions. Diabetes and high blood pressure affect the male body by stopping the proper flow of blood through the body. When proper blood flow cannot reach the penis, the man suffers from penile erectile dysfunction. Men that recently underwent some types of surgeries, or suffered a heart attack may also have impotence problems. Certain herbal supplements and nutritional supplements can help with the problems by reducing stress and making the man feel more relaxed. Every man suffers from impotence at some point in his life and often, penile erectile dysfunction is a short-term problem that the man can conquer, leading to an active and healthy sexual life.
