Erectile Dysfunction

Impotence, otherwise called erectile dysfunction, refers to problems with getting an erection or maintaining one throughout the act of sexual intercourse. The term impotence is often associated with other aspects of sexual dysfunction, including lack of a sex drive, ejaculation problems and orgasm issues. Erectile dysfunction, however, refers solely to erection issues.

The Prevalence of ED

Erectile dysfunction can refer to any level of erection problems, including a complete inability to obtain an erection, intermittent issues or experiencing erections that don’t last. Because of the various problems that make up ED, it can often be difficult to obtain a proper diagnosis and treatment. In general terms, between 15 and 30 million men suffer from this condition, though it depends on the definition used. The National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey indicates around 7 out of every 1,000 doctor visits by men in 1985 were due to ED issues. The rate tripled by 1999 to around 22 out of every 1,000. This increase is partially due to the greater number of treatment options, as well as the increased comfort level of talking about these issues. With the introduction of Viagra, ED became more widely discussed, particularly in doctors’ offices.

When you are dealing with older men, the cause of ED is often physical. Diseases, injuries and drug side effects can all cause this condition. If the nerves are damaged or blood flow is restricted due to an injury, ED can result. As a man ages, his risk of experiencing ED increases, with a roughly 40 percent chance at age 40 to a roughly 70 percent chance at age 70. However, aging doesn’t mean you are doomed to suffer from ED.

The good news is you don’t have to accept ED in your life. With the increase in the number of natural ED remedies, more men are reaching out for assistance and enjoying a healthier sex life once again.

The Process of an Erection

The penis is made up of two corpora cavernosa chambers that exist through the entire length of the penis. The chambers are filled with a spongy tissue, which is made up of blood vessels, smooth muscles, empty spaces and fibrous tissue. The tunica albuginea surrounds these chambers. The urethra, which carries urine and semen, runs along the bottom of the two chambers and is surrounded by the corpus spongiosum.

When men are stimulated mentally or physically, the brain and nervous system sends messages to the corpora cavernosa. These messages encourage relaxation, which allows more blood to flow into the area. This creates pressure that causes the penis to expand. The blood is trapped in the penis by the tunica albuginea, maintaining the erection. As the muscles contract back, blood flow is reduced and the erection ends.
