is Erectile dysfunction (ED) ?
A good sex is an instantaneous
rejuvenator but what if little Johnny doesn't support you. In medical
terms the problem is christened as erectile dysfunction.
It is defined as the inability to
achieve or sustain an erection necessary for sexual gratification;
it is entirely different from other factors that hamper sexual
intercourse, like lack of sexual desire,
problems in ejaculation or orgasm. Erectile dysfunction has several
categories; some men suffer from permanent Erectile Dysfunction,
others from inconsistent Erectile Dysfunction, and still others
from brief erection. This variation complicates the process of defining
ED and estimating its incidence difficult. This hazardous disorder
hampers the sexual life of around 15 million to
30 million people around the world.
Factors Responsible for Erectile
Erection is a precise sequence of events which involves nerve impulses in the brain, spinal column, and area around the penis, and response in muscles, fibrous tissues, veins, and arteries in and near the corpora cavernosa. Disruption in any of these sequences can lead to erectile dysfunction.
According to Experts 80 percent to
90 percent of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) cases are related to a physical
or medical condition, such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases,
and prostate cancer treatment, while 10 percent to 20 percent are
due to psychological causes. In many cases, however, both psychological
and physical factors contribute to the condition.
The most prominent cause of
erectile dysfunction is aging; it is assumed that over
50% of the men suffering from Erectile Dysfunction (ED) are aged
above 40. This has created a myth that Erectile Dysfunction is a
disorder associated with age but that's wrong, age has nothing to
do with ED and it is treatable at any age.
Damage to nerves, arteries, smooth
muscles, and fibrous tissues, often as a result of disease, is the
most common cause of Erectile Dysfunction. Diseases-such as diabetes,
kidney disease, chronic alcoholism, multiple sclerosis, atherosclerosis,
vascular disease, and neurologic disease-account for about 70 percent
of Erectile Dysfunction cases. Between 35 and 50 percent of men
with diabetes experience Erectile Dysfunction.
Also, surgery (especially radical
prostate and bladder surgery for cancer) can injure nerves and arteries
near the penis, causing Erectile Dysfunction. Injury to the penis,
spinal cord, prostate, bladder, and pelvis can lead to Erectile
Dysfunction by harming nerves, smooth muscles, arteries, and fibrous
tissues of the corpora cavernosa.
In addition, many common medicines-blood
pressure drugs, antihistamines, antidepressants,
tranquilizers, appetite suppressants, and cimetidine can produce
ED as a side effect.
Psychological factors such as stress,
anxiety, guilt, depression, low self-esteem, and fear of sexual
failure cause 10 to 20 percent of Erectile Dysfunction cases. Men
with a physical cause for ED frequently experience the same sort
of psychological reactions.
Excessive intake of alcohol or smoking
can also lead to erectile dysfunction. Smoking increases the chance
of atherosclerosis developing and smokers have an increased risk
of developing Erectile Dysfunction (ED).
Thanks to modern sciences that has
provided easy ways to rid your self from this hap- hazardous disorder.
Believe me, Erectile Dysfunction (ED) can be treated at any stage
and age, so what are you waiting for, kill Erectile Dysfunction
and sexcite your life once again.
