Erectile Dysfunction – Causes and Treatment
Around half of all UK men aged between 40 and 70 years old experience at least one episode of erectile dysfunction, meaning that they are unable to sustain an erection sufficient for intercourse.
Psychologically, the effect of erectile dysfunction can be very powerful. Patients may experience anxiety or depression, withdrawing themselves from their partners causing further anxiety. Many men avoid admitting they are experiencing a problem and begin to feel isolated as a result of this. There are treatments available online in the UK which help men to achieve and maintain an erection. Click the link at the bottom of the page for more help.
What are the causes?
Erectile dysfunction is often experienced by people with hypertension, hyperlipidaemia, endothelial dysfunction and diabetes. These conditions are very common.
It may also be caused by psychological problems such as stress or fatigue. However, very often it is caused by something that you cannot control, as it is due to a physical problem that affects your blood flow.
Cycling may be associated with erectile dysfunction and cyclists who spend more than three hours a week in the saddle may be advised to avoid using their bicycles, to see if it improves.
Erectile dysfunction usually responds to a combination of lifestyle changes and treatment. Patients are often recommended to lose weight, stop smoking, reduce alcohol consumption and increase exercise, if appropriate.
However, erectile dysfunction is a medical condition and most cases will not improve without treatment.
