What is ED? First and foremost, ED (erectile dysfunction) is a serious issue that people tend to overlook. Not many men are willing to open up about it, due to the sensitive nature of the issue.
At its core, ED is the inability to keep an erection long enough to have sexual contact. There are many types of ED, including situational/occasional ED – up to 90% suffered from it once or twice in their lives. It can happen due to stress, heavy drinking, to give you a couple of common examples. If ED happens more often, it’s a serious cause for concern, no matter how embarrassing it might seem – people should seek out the treatment immediately.
Here are the most common symptoms of ED. Let’s list off the most popular ones first:
• Trouble getting an erection;
• Trouble keeping an erection;
• Lessened interest in sex.
There are many other sex-related issues that also correlate with ED, including premature/delayed/painful ejaculation and inability to achieve an orgasm. While these don’t seem all that serious, we will repeat once again, for your own’s sake – please go visit a doctor, ED is no joke, you should seek erectile dysfunction treatment. It could be caused by an underlying condition that might turn out quite severe.
Here are the most common conditions that cause ED.
• Psychological issues;
• Heart problems;
• Drug abuse;
• Substance abuse;
• Being overweight.
And that’s just a few of them, the list goes on and on. It could be any combination of the two, three or more causes. If any of these apply to you, you shouldn’t delay your visit to the doctor’s.
The selection of treatments is pretty good, the prognosis is also good if the doctor manages to find the root of your problem. Obviously, the treatments vary based on the main cause, but there are some medications that have become a mainstay of ED treatment, including tadalafil, sildenafil, testosterone, and vardenafil.
Many people turn to natural remedies and herbs, but that’s a whole another topic for an article. To put it bluntly, these are not as effective. There are many numbers out there to back that statement up, so we strongly suggest you avoid this kind of treatment altogether.
