Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction, commonly referred to as ED, is your inability to maintain an erection suitable for sexual 
intercourse. According to studies, about 1 out of 10 males suffer from ED at some point during their lifetime.

ED occurs because of problems in the erection process. An erection is the result of increased blood flow to your 
penis, which is usually stimulated by sexual thoughts or direct contact with the penis. 
With ED, getting or keeping an erection is hard. When this becomes a routine and becomes bothersome, consult 
your medical provider or a urologist. 
Many men experience occasional malfunctions in the erection department, which happens due to various reasons 
such as stress, drinking too much alcohol, or extreme tiredness. 
It is also important to note that in most cases, erectile dysfunction is a symptom of another medical problem that 
you may have.  
Other sexual disorders related to erectile dysfunction may include: 
Premature ejaculation 
Delayed ejaculation 
Anorgasmia, also known as the inability to achieve orgasm 
Erectile dysfunction may be caused by several factors, which may include: 
Vascular disease – This happens when the blood supply to your penis becomes blocked or narrowed due to 
vascular diseases such as atherosclerosis 
Neurological disorders – This happens when the nerves that send signals to your penis are damaged from 
stroke, diabetes, or other medical conditions 
Psychological – This can include stress, depression, or relationship problems 
Physical causes – erectile dysfunction may also be caused by something physical, which can include: 
1. Obesity  
2. Tobacco use or smoking 
3. Alcoholism or any form of substance abuse 
4. Sleep disorders 
The first step in treating ED starts with taking care of your heart and vascular health. You may also be asked to 
change some food habits, stop smoking, or increase your physical activities and stop using drugs and alcohol. 
Treatments for ED will depend on the underlying cause. Although non-invasive procedure is often tried before 
opting for surgery, such as: 
Oral drugs or pills are most often prescribed by medical providers 
Testosterone therapy 
Penile injections 
Intraurethral medication 
Vacuum erection devices 
Penile implants 
Surgery to bypass penile artery damage 
Don’t buy supplements as a treatment for erectile dysfunction without talking to your doctor or if it is not prescribed 
by your doctor. Many supplements are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, which may mean that 
they contain illegal ingredients that are more harmful to your health.
