"How can I solve the problem of Erectile Dysfunction?" This is a very common question in our enquiry segment. Here's how to start looking into it.....
What is Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?
Men will generally refer to any problem affecting their ability to experience adequate sexual performance as erectile dysfunction.
It could be problems with achieving an erection, maintaining an erection or lacking interest in sex.
Other forms of sexual difficulty in men like premature ejaculation or delayed ejaculation can also happen along with ED.
Erectile Dysfunction has many different causes.
Therefore, it's important to discuss this condition in detail with your doctor.
The doctor will need to take some details from you about the problem.
For instance - when it started; whether the problem is achieving or maintaining an erection; problems with ejaculation and if you have other health problems or symptoms.
Possible Causes of Erectile Dysfunction
- Performance Anxiety
- Male hormone problems (for example lack of testosterone)
- Medical conditions like High Blood Pressure or Diabetes
- Drugs - many types of drugs including some used to treat Diabetes and High Blood Pressure
- Mood problems - conditions like Anxiety or Depression.
As you can see, these are some of the issues the doctor will need to consider so they can arrange the appropriate tests and identify the cause and offer the right treatment.
There is NEVER one tonic or drug that cures erectile dysfunction - you must be properly examined to identify the cure.
Please see the doctor, have a discussion on the available solutions.
