What Is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is often a symptom of poor circulation for men. ED refers to the consistent inability to achieve or maintain an erection. For an erection to occur, a specific sequence of event needs to take place, allowing blood to enter the penis while restricting the outflow of blood. The pressure created by this “trapped” blood is what maintains an erection. If there is a consistent breakdown in any steps in the sequence, erectile dysfunction is the result. Erectile dysfunction may occur at any age, however, the occurrence of ED is increasingly common as men age. However, it should not be considered a natural part of aging.
What Causes Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?
In older men, there may be physical or medical conditions that contribute to erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction may be caused by a combination of medical, physical, hormonal, and psychological factors including:
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
- Physical injury
- Side effects from prescription medications
- Drug or alcohol use
- Low Testosterone
- Anxiety and stress
- Guilt and fear of poor sexual performance
We will help you zero in on the problem and assist to design a corrective treatment plan.
