There has been no other topic which has been more sensitive and more secretive than erectile dysfunction. This is often a huge blow to the male ego, and pretty much a big problem for women, too, if their partners have the issue. While most men are extremely uncomfortable talking about it, yet, if ignored, it has the potential to ruin people’s mental health also.
Erection, on the other hand, is not just about the male organ or penis. There is a more complicated process of body and mind, and many other bodily departments in play and the penis is only a small component of the erection process. Simply put, if this process fails to occur in a man, he certainly has an erectile dysfunction problem.
But what is erectile dysfunction?
If a man is suffering from an erectile dysfunction problem, he might be unable to either have a proper erection or is unable to hold on to the available construction long enough to have sex, In general, ED is more of an individual problem, a condition rather, so that rules out blaming either partners as the reason, as there undoubtedly is arousal.
There are, however, many medical conditions that are known to cause ED in men. Many of these problems are known to reduce blood flow and nerve functioning, thus giving men problems having an erection.
What are the types of erectile dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction is not that uncommon as one might want to think. The problem has social consequences, and that being said becomes one of the most secretly kept topics. But Erectile dysfunction can be caused by the following reasons.
In general, there are only two leading causes for someone having an erectile dysfunction – Psychological and Physical Reasons
Psychological ED –
Mental conditions like depression, anxiety and other states can affect the person’s libido, making it difficult to have a proper erection. Because the brain is a fundamental factor in the process of having a construction, and when there is a lot of stress on that part, it causes a particular dysfunction. Psychological factors contribute to 10% to 20% of ED cases.
Physical ED –
Physical Erectile Dysfunction is a more common problem that earlier thought, compared to that of Psychological ED. As it turns out there are many more people suffering from the physical type than the psychological kind. Physical causes could be natural or due to another medical condition affecting the nervous system, heart (blood flow) or any of those factors that lead to an erection. The big issue with Physical ED is that in people it causes more problem because they keep thinking about their inability to get an erection, thus complicating the already existing physical problem and subsequently, both difficulties now co-existing.
What are the most commonly suggested or initial treatments for ED?
There are several options when it comes to treating ED due to psychological reasons –
- Erectile Dysfunction Medication –

For Physical ED, consult your Andrologist for a complete evaluation of the situation. At times, there could be so many complexities that there could be no treatments available to solve the cause. On the other hand, there have been therapies and medications that seems to have helped many get over the problem of erectile dysfunction.
