Erectile dysfunction is also known as male impotence. This issue is a sexual health problem men face, where they are either unable to get an erection or keep an erection long enough to enjoy satisfactory sexual intercourse. In fact, both they and their partners are not satisfied and this is one of the major reasons for women cheating on their husbands/bf, increased number of divorce cases and several breakups. The main cause of ED is still unknown, however, it is known that the poor flow of blood to the penis is one of the major contributing factor towards men suffering from ED. Also, it is said that most cases of depression in men are linked to ED.
ED is most common in men who are above the age of 40 years. The prevalence of which is around 55-60% compared to 25% among men below the age of 40. The only explanation why ED is more common among men who are older might be because older men tend to suffer from various underlying health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, high levels of cholesterol, etc. Also, older men tend to have greater ill-effects, in case they have been smoking or drinking. Also, the physical fitness for men who are above 40 is poor when compared to men below the age of 40. All these contribute in some or the other way in causing poor flow of blood to the penis which leads to ED, eventually.
In case of young men, to some extent, they can make certain changes to their habits and lifestyle which could help them to gain control over their ED problems. But, for older men, it isn’t that easy. Older men need to go in for various treatment options, if they want to enjoy sexual intercourse. The various treatment options for ED, although it can never be completely cured are penile injections, oral ED medicines, muses, penile pumps, penile inserts, etc.
