Erectile

Dysfunction Treatment

Resulting in challenges in engaging in sexual activity, erectile dysfunction stands as a prevalent issue in the United States, impacting more than 30 million men. Often abbreviated as ED, this condition is characterized by the inability to achieve or maintain an erection of sufficient rigidity for satisfactory sexual intercourse. While it's a common misconception that ED solely stems from aging, the condition is more often a sign of an underlying condition. 

Isolated specifically to the penis and the inclination towards sexual activity, erectile dysfunction significantly impacts your sexual health through the following symptoms: 

medical care

Difficulty achieving an erection, even when sexually aroused. 

medical care

Trouble maintaining an erection long enough for sexual activity.

Even in cases of achieving an erection, having one that is not rigid enough for sexual activity.

medical care

Reduced sexual desire or libido, even when sex is possible.

Erectile dysfunction can be just as physical as it can be psychological, with some cases including both. Physically, it can be linked to underlying health conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, and hormonal imbalances, particularly low testosterone. Neurological disorders, such as multiple sclerosis or nerve damage due to injury or surgery, can also play a role. Lifestyle choices, including smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and lack of physical activity, can contribute to ED. Psychological factors like anxiety, stress, depression, and relationship issues can further exacerbate the condition.

 

Alongside medication, the treatment for erectile dysfunction will typically include a focus on surrounding conditions. Added to that, lifestyle changes and more advanced options include: 

medical care

Changing your lifestyle by getting regular exercise and establishing a healthy diet will often be the focus, while the limitation of alcohol, tobacco, and stress are encouraged. 

medical care

Psychotherapy will be encouraged for those with conditions that affect both mental and sexual health.

Due to low testosterone being one of the top reasons for ED, testosterone replacement therapy can be explored as a potential treatment.

As a condition that is most often linked to psychological or chronic conditions, long-term management of erectile dysfunction will have to do with getting its source under control. This may include adjusting your lifestyle to best improve your chances of achieving a regular erection and taking assertive steps in treating the underlying condition. While not every case of ED features a cause, those that do will be managed through psychotherapy or medical interventions. 

Preventing erectile dysfunction will require adopting proactive steps toward a health-conscious lifestyle. Due to it being a symptom of so many treatable conditions, the essential tact to avoid it is to get regular exercise and enjoy a highly nutritious diet that keeps your body running at maximum efficiency. This will mean minimizing the consumption of processed foods, excessive sugars, and alcohol, to name a few, while steering clear of tobacco and weed. Additionally, learning to manage stress can contribute to a healthy emotional state and reduce the likelihood of ED due to a psychological condition.
