ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION INFORMATION
What it means To Suffer from Erectile dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get or keep an erection firm enough to have sexual intercourse. Some people call this impotence.
Many men experience it during times of stress or fatigue, or a sign of a underlying health problems that needs to be addressed. Perhaps you have had a nasty accident or impact to your package, emotional or relationship difficulties can also be a cause of short term Ed.
What To Look For
Firstly Not all male sexual problems are caused by ED. Some other forms of a drop in sexual performance are:
*Premature ejaculation, Delayed or absent ejaculation and a lack of interest in sex these are separate issues and need to be addressed on their own merit by a health professional.
If you regularly have one or more of the following signs, There’s a higher chance of Ed being Present
*Trouble getting an erection, Difficulty maintaining an erection during sexual activities, Reduced interest in sex, and anorgasmia, more commonly know as desentization.
So now we understand a little about what it is and the signs to look for.
What causes ED
Truly there are many causes for ED, be it a short or a long term affliction.
Not all causes are physical, some are mental/emotional based, however lifestyle is one of the biggest impacting factors.
Heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, increased age being overweight stress and anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), relationship problems, drug use ,medications, alcohol use and lastly smoking.
You can suffer by one or many issues making it a more complex issue
Personally after almost 20yrs in the adult industry, I feel the statistics are around
12% for men around 40+ ,25 % of men 50-60yrs, 30%of men over 60, 50 % of men 70+
The biggest trigger I see for sudden unexpected Ed is you may have started taking a medicine for another issue that is causing you stress in the bedroom.
So here’s a hot tip medications used to treat other conditions may cause ED.
Talk to your doctor about medications you’re taking and whether they could be causing your symptoms. There may be other medications you can take instead. don’t just stop taking your prescribed medication please talk to your doctor first.
How to Seek treatment
First and foremost go to your family / local Gp
Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. You may need to use a combination of treatments, including medication, lifestyle changes, and or therapy to get back to your best.
Solutions that work Medications vs Natural
Your doctor may prescribe medication to help manage your ED. These medications do have side effects so please take your doctors advice.
He or she may also send you to a Adult Shop like My Fantasy Dreams to buy a product called a Cock Ring or Penile Pump both these options are inexpensive and can be a great alternative to a overly medicated world that we live in.
