Erection Dysfunction


Most men have had some problems in getting up an erection at some point of time, but this is not a reason to worry. If a person is unable to get an erection  repeatedly then this is a problem and is known as erectile dysfunction. This is curable and the treatment depends on the causing factor.


Almost everyone has had experiences where they wanted and were ready to have sex, but then, to their dismay, they could not get an erection. If this happens at random intervals and not very often, there is no reason to worry. However, if you or your partner is repeatedly having problems getting an erection, you should consider seeing a doctor.

Many men are too embarrassed to visit a doctor with this problem. First of all, it is important to rid yourself of this embarrassment because problems with erections are actually almost always curable. Just because you are unable to get it up does not make you any less of a man or does not question your manhood. Be willing and able to discuss your problem openly with your medical advisor. Don't worry about whether embarrassing questions will be brought to the forefront. The first thing you may need to undergo is a physical examination, which just involves a blood test, blood pressure and perhaps a urine test. It is only after health problems are ruled out, that you may need to go in for psychological counseling. Once again, most cases of erectile dysfunction are easily treated, and so it is advisable to seek medical help at the outset.


Causes

Health Issues

High blood pressure, diabetes and high levels of cholesterol are associated with erection dysfunction. Similarly, heart diseases, surgery, pelvic trauma and hormonal or neurological conditions can lead to an inability to get or sustain an erection.


Lifestyle

There is a strong, established link between smoking and impotence. Heavy smokers are likely to suffer from erection problems in time. Excessive consumption of alcohol is also a cause.


Medication

Certain forms of medication such as heart medication, anti-depressants, sedatives, and regular, long-term use of some over-the-counter drugs can also lead to erection problems.


Ageing

Although it is believed that the older a man gets, the harder it is for him to sustain an erection, this is not true. Men may start losing their ability to sustain orgasms at the age of around 60, but this is not always the case. Many men go on to have active sex lives well past the age of 60, if they take good care of their health and have a healthy lifestyle. Erectile dysfunction is not a natural part of the ageing process.


Psychological Issues

Naturally if your inability to have an erection is related to your health, the relevant issue needs to be tackled before you can expect regular erections. But if the problem is psychological, you may need to go in for counseling.

Many men often experience what is called 'performance anxiety.' If a man experiences a problem with getting it up, the next time he is with his partner he may be anxious with regard to whether he can get it up this time. This worry causes an inability to get it up yet again, leading to further stress and anxiety. A vicious circle is formed, and this may even result in impotence. Other psychological factors include work-related stress, previous bad sexual incidences and so on.


Viagra

Viagra has been found to severely improve penile performance, and has negligible side effects. You should check with your doctor before taking Viagra, especially if you are on some other medication. Viagra should be take an hour before intercourse. The penis does not get hard by itself, and sexual stimulation is still required - which is why Viagra is a more natural therapy.

I am rahul 35 years merried male, Natural medicines are far better than these artificial things. I had similar problem a couple years back. I also tried Viagra and various other medicines but didn’t get a permanent solution. I tried various herbal medicines also but they were not actually herbal and had impact similar to that of Viagra. Then once searching on internet I came across Shivalik Gold capsules. I did not believe it but still decided to give it a try. I felt very little effect after one week of usage and got discouraged. I called the company and complained. They said that Herbal medicines take longer to cure but it will be permanent. On their advice I continued with Shivalik Gold and after 15 days I felt substantial difference and I gained confidence. I took this medicine for 40 days as recommended and today…
