There is a significant portion of the male population that is suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED) and is not getting treated for it. This condition may not be life threatening but it does have a negative impact on an individual’s overall quality of life so it is something that should be addressed.
Potential Causes of Erectile Dysfunction
This list is not all inclusive but it will touch on some of the most common causes of ED. One of the most common causes of ED is physical trauma to the groin. If the man was active in sports and didn’t wear the right protective equipment they could have sustained injuries that would restrict the flow of blood into the groin, this restricted blood flow is the primary cause of the ED but may be corrected with surgery.
Another potential cause of ED is atherosclerosis which is caused by hardening of the arteries. Men who are smokers are at a greater risk of developing this condition which reduces the duration and rigidness of an erection. It has been documented that smoking is bad for the health and this is another reason for a person to quit.
We have covered some of the physical causes of ED, however, another cause that often goes left untreated is the psychological causes of ED. If the male has had bad experiences in the bedroom with women/men then that could make it hard for them to have an erection while being intimate with someone. The only effective way to deal with this is by seeking out a qualified medical professional who is trained in the proper ways to treat erectile dysfunction.
For the majority of men out there, they can get their ED treated and enjoy a more fulfilling life but they need to take the first step and reach out for professional help.
