Erectile Dysfunction

Commonly referred to as Impotence, erectile dysfunction refers to a man's inability to achieve or maintain an erection during intercourse. Though this condition more commonly appears in older men, all men of any age may experience this problem.

While short periods of erectile dysfunction are not a cause of worry, one must consult a doctor if the period extends over a few weeks. Men experiencing this problem for over a month should for no reason delay visiting their doctor; since not only does this condition cause severe stress in relationships, it also can be an indication of several other underlying medical conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart problems.

Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

This medical condition may arise on account of physical as well as physiological reasons. Some of the most commonly known causes behind erectile dysfunction include:

Heart Disease
Low Testosterone
Parkinson's Disease
High Blood Pressure
Hormonal Problems
Kidney Disease
Pelvic surgery
Lifestyle Habits like smoking, alcohol abuse and use of drugs
Anxiety, Stress and Depression


Some of the most common symptoms of erectile dysfunction are as follows:

Inability to achieve or sustain an erection
Extremely Short Erections
Reduced Sexual desire


Upon a patient's visit, the doctor discusses his problems, lifestyle habits, mental state and several other factors that may affect the condition. After physically examining the patient, the doctor may then advise him to go through a few tests in order to determine the exact cause of erectile dysfunction.
These may include blood test, nocturnal penile tumescence and rigidity, intracavernous injection test, duplex ultrasound scan, Arteriography and dynamic infusion cavernosometry etc. Once the doctor is able to determine the cause for the erectile dysfunction, treatment is offered accordingly.

Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction

The treatment methods may include:

Oral Medication: Many a times this condition may be cured simply with the help of oral medications. These pills help the penis relax and thereby, increase blood flow, which in turn leads to erection on sexual stimulation.
Testosterone Replacement: Men suffering from low levels of the hormone – testosterone, may be advised Testosterone Replacement therapy.
Surgery: In cases where an erectile dysfunction is being caused by damaged blood vessels, surgery to repair the same may be advised. Penile Implants may also be surgically placed in order to enable patients to have erections.
Psychological Counseling: In cases where the cause of erectile dysfunction is psychological, patients may be advised to visit counselors for the same.

Patients are advised not to try any treatment without proper medical guidance, as unsupervised treatments could lead to several side-effects.

Lifestyle Changes

Apart from treatment, bringing about some lifestyle changes can greatly contribute in curing the erectile dysfunction condition. Some of the changes should include:

Following a regular exercise schedule. Regular exercise can help keep all body ailments at bay. In case of erectile dysfunction, aerobic exercises are most beneficial.
