About Erectile Dysfunction

What Is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction has many possible causes and can be the first symptom of an undiagnosed condition. Erections are caused by the balance of blood flow into and out of the penis. Conditions that result in changes in the penis’ blood flow are common causes of ED. The 2 most common medical problems that may cause ED are atherosclerosis and diabetes. Obesity is also associated with both blood vessel changes and hormone changes that negatively affect erections. Another cause of ED is damage to the nerves involved in getting erections. This can happen with diseases of the nervous system (eg, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson disease) or with surgery (eg, for prostate cancer). Hormone problems, like low testosterone, and side effects of medications, like those used to treat high blood pressure, can also cause ED.

Erectile dysfunction, also referred to as impotence, is a problem getting or keeping an erection hard enough for satisfactory sexual performance. Erectile dysfunction is present in 1 of 2 men older than 40 years. Other types of male sexual dysfunction can include problems with libido (sexual interest), orgasm, or ejaculation.

Treatments for Erectile Dysfunction

A wide range of treatment options are available and allow physicians to tailor treatment to a patient’s specific goals. Erectile dysfunction should always be evaluated by a medical professional. Many products available on the Internet or in stores claim to help ED but are not proven to be safe or effective. The first step in treating ED is often making lifestyle changes. Losing weight by dieting and exercising may be all that is needed to improve erections. You should also reduce alcohol intake and avoid smoking and illicit drug use. If ED is the result of a medication side effect, your physician may recommend alternative medications. Psychosocial therapy is effective when emotional or psychological factors contribute to ED. Medications are commonly used to treat ED. All ED medications work by increasing the blood flow to the penis. These pills are safe and effective when used under the supervision of a physician.
