Erectile Dysfunction (ED) refers to the inability to have and maintain an erection firm enough to have sexual intercourse. Having erectile dysfunction from time to time is not necessarily a signal that all is not well. However, if erectile dysfunction has been an issue for a long time, it may be a problem worth addressing. There are several causes of erectile dysfunction. Some of them are stress, diet, certain medications, and injury to the penis or testicles.Learn more about us at Gig Harbor Erectile Dysfunction Association
Stress is considered the most common causes of erectile dysfunction in men. Some of the more obvious signs of stress include having problems falling asleep, staying asleep or staying awake through the night. It has also been found that men who are suffering from stress have smaller sex organs than those who are not stressed out. There are some physical causes of ED that may not be so obvious. One of these physical causes is blockage of blood vessels in the penis. Since the primary goal of sex for men is to increase the amount of blood flowing to the penis, this could potentially lead to an erection problem.
Another possible cause of erectile dysfunction may be due to damage to the penis or the testicles as a result of injury. Surgery is one way to treat this type of situation. A penis or scrotum implant is one surgical option that may help you overcome erectile dysfunction. Another surgical treatment is to replace the erectile organ with a penile prosthesis, such as a penis sleeve or artificial hand. However, before opting for surgery, you should be sure that the extent of your damage or loss is substantial enough that a surgery will be effective.
