Surprising Facts About Erectile Dysfunction Or Impotence

Erectile dysfunction, as taboo as you might assume it to be, is actually a much more prevalent and recurring disorder in the male population. That, whether of old, or of today. From, understand the basic facts from fiction of what ED truly is, and isn’t.

Common Erectile Dysfunction Yes’s And No’s

  1. Is Erectile Dysfunction Really Dangerous? 

As it is, the answer is “no”. Erectile dysfunction is not a severe kind of ailment. In fact, most cases show that it is a very common (albeit frustrating) disorder that a majority of the male population experiences, at least once in each one’s lifetime. 

To look at this through the lenses of practicality, erectile dysfunction transpires in 50 of men who are 50 years of age. 70% for those who are 60 years of age. And 80% for those who are beyond 70 years of age. It is also important to note that men as young as 25 to 40 may go through ED as well.

In the aspect of “danger” in terms of a health hazard, most erectile dysfunction cases are the contrary. They are disturbances, annoyances, to say the least, during coitus. But as long as you have been diagnosed and are declared “healthy” (i.e. clear of cardiovascular and/or nervous system diseases), then you will probably be able to trace ED back to simpler causes such as stress, lack of sleep, and the like. 

  1. Is Erectile Dysfunction Permanent? 

No, it is not. At least, with erectile dysfunction that is linked to environmental causes instead of to physical ailments and/or reasons rooted to ageing. ED is generally tied into how stressed or stress-free your bodily systems are. 

The adrenal glands ramp up the production of cortisol whenever your central nervous system’s stress sensors are on the alert. One would think that this would revert to ramping up the reproductive system’s capacity to maintain an erection. Ironically, this isn’t so. 

Instead, your body will go into a kind of slump post the cortisol-secretion. Almost immediately, in fact. Translated, it equates to a weaker prowess in achieving an erection in sexual intercourse. Cortisol narrows and tightens arteries, which is a direct impedance of blood flow towards the penile region. 

Going back to the question proposed, ED will not be permanent. That is, provided you see to following-through with work-life balance, physical and mental health balance, as well as regular visits to your ED treatment medical practitioner. 

  1. Is Erectile Dysfunction Treatable?

Yes. It is. This is where going for a diagnosis will be advantageous to you. As early as now (if you have gone through erectile dysfunction as of recent), you can ask your doctor about its possible causes, in parallel to your current health status. 

Through a proper diagnosis, a series of bodily disorders can be ruled out, and it will be easier for your doctor to identify the major cause of ED. Afterwards, you can inquire about erectile dysfunction treatments. 

Besides the medication itself which you are to partake of on a regular basis (and never beyond the recommended dosage, might we add), your doctor will provide you with a schedule and a fixed period for taking said medication. 

First, for observing how your bodily systems will respond to the ED medication. And second, for observing how often and how long you may need to stay on the ED treatment.
