Erectile Dysfunction is considered as a common concern when it becomes impossible to get a  satisfactory sexual performance. This will remain the same on a number of occasions for some time.

But don’t worry. Erectile dysfunction is a treatable medical condition. However, the majority of men fail to consult a urologist because of embarrassment whereas others stop from proceeding with the surgery after diagnosis. There are plenty of causes which leads to this condition. Some of the organic causes for erectile dysfunction are usually the result of an underlying medical condition affecting the blood vessels or nerves supplying the penis.

Prescription Drugs:
While consuming tablets, many of them fail to go through the side effects and the problems that might cause you once you start a pattern. The lack of knowledge and carelessness can lead to ED. It is always advisable to read the side effects, and also ask the doctor if it is safe enough for you to consume these tablets. Next time when you get prescribed to certain drugs, make sure to understand it’s implication before taking them.

Psychological Issues:
It is said that although ED is caused by medical issues, it is equally possible to face it due to psychological issues. Some issues are mentally stressful, which leads to overthinking, hence gradually leading to ED.

If you’re worried about how well you’re gonna perform sexually or being able to satisfy your partner, it can pave the way to ED. This is termed as performance anxiety which is common among young men, who often gets worried about if they’ll be good enough for their partner.

Another cause is stress, which is common among people above 40 where they tend to face problems in their work life or any other issue, which in turn affects their sexual life. Men who are subjects to mental disorders such as schizophrenia can make them incapable to perform sexually.

When one is mentally drained or are having personal issues with their partner, it’ll create a huge impact on your sexual life. It is recommended to consult a psychologist for marriage counselling, or pre-marital counselling to help you overcome personal issues with your partner. Talk to your partner about these changes and about how you’re feeling. Such counselling sessions will help you perform better sexually and also help your partner understand your concern better.

Lifestyle Habits:
Living a healthy life will help you lead a disease-free and happy life. Men who are frequent drinkers or smokers may also face erectile dysfunction. This unhealthy lifestyle is one key risk factor which gives rise to this condition for which men often shut their eye.

Ageing normally brings physical changes in both men and women. And so these changes often affect one’s ability to enjoy and perform sexually. Normally as men grow older, erectile dysfunction becomes more common among them. Though this condition is common for people over the age of 40, it is four times more common for men over the age of 60. Some of the illness, disabilities and surgeries can also be an added factor to cause ED.

Erectile Dysfunction is usually not a problem if it happens now and then, but if this occurs often, consult a urologist today. Call us now to book an appointment.
