Common Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

The Common Causes of Erectile Dysfunction can be best tracked by first examining any physical conditions that may be contributing to the problem. The issue is adequate blood flow needed to engorge the penis. During the erection, the blood flow should be fast, steady, and strong. When a man has slow, weak blood flow to the penis, that means the enough blood will not be stored in the penis to help him achieve a satisfactory erection.

The Venous Leak is what experts call this condition. Most men with ED symptoms may not be able to procure and maintain an erection. When the condition becomes more severe, as time goes by, the erection will no longer be attainable. In the worst cases, men don’t respond to oral medications such as Phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitor, Phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitor, and Phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitor. Let’s have a look at the Common Causes of Erectile Dysfunction.

Peyronie’s Disease

It is a condition which the penis is bent or curved. This condition is caused by inflammation of the penis body. Unfortunately, oral medications are mostly ineffective to handle ED resulting from Peyronie‘s disease.

Physical or Nerve Traumas

Men who have a history of injury wherein the spinal cord was affected are quite often exposed to Erectile Dysfunctions. Both physical and nerve traumas are the most Common Causes of Erectile Dysfunction.

Side Effects of Prescribed Medications

Taking prescribed medications for a long period of time can cause Erectile Dysfunction. If you have been using medicines prescribed by your doctor, you might want to ask if ED is a common side effect of any of the medications you are taking. Some medicines which have been known to trigger ED are beta blockers, blood pressure medications, antidepressants, and hair growth products. Discuss it with your doctor and allow your physician to assess the condition and find options for you.

Too Much Alcohol Intake

Drinking too much alcohol, over a long period of time, can cause nerve damage. The nerve damage can cause impotence because your penis will no longer be sensitive to stimulation.

Smoking

Smoking is one of the habits which can affect the ability to achieve an erection in most significant ways. Not only causing vascular disease, it also causes chains of health problems that will deteriorate your overall health. Tobacco is a major cause of Erectile Dysfunction. Research has shown that approximately 68% of men who smoke regularly have experienced on or more episode of Erectile Dysfunction.

Aging

Men who age are more likely to experience ED. As time goes by, the condition may worsen if not treated properly.

Psychological Factors

Anxiety, stress, pressure from work or family problems can trigger Erectile Dysfunction.

Hormone Imbalance

Hormone levels decrease as men age. Usually, the hormones lost are not replaced. Certain diseases like kidney failure, liver disease, stroke, prostate enlargement, and other sexual organ problem can lead to Erectile Dysfunction.

Obesity

Obesity can cause abnormalities in testosterone, the most important commodity for erection. Testosterone, when in adequate supply, is a major factor in achieving an erection. People who are overweight should consider this as one of the Common Causes of Erectile Dysfunction.
