10 Erectile Dysfunction Treatments For Men Of A Certain Age

Looking for erectile dysfunction treatments? Do you fail to rise to the occasion sometimes? I know it's an embarrassing topic for some, but the problem is more common than most people think.

Now I know I said "men of a certain age" in the title of this article, but ED can effect a man at ANY age, it's just more common in older men.

How common? Well it is estimated that more than 30 million men in the United States suffer from at least occasional erectile dysfunction or impotence.

What Is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) or impotence is the inability of a man to achieve and maintain an erection long enough for normal sex.

Erections are the result of erotic excitement, nerve functions, hormonal actions, and blood flowing to the right area. Anything that interferes with any one of these components can cause ED or loss of sexual power.

In my opinion, good ole sex is considered to be a basic instinct like hunger.

Sexual activity demands that a man not only have  complete concentration, but also relaxation. A man cannot perform under conditions where there is haste and tension.

What Causes ED Or Impotence?

There are numerous factors that cause impotence in men. some of the factors include chronic illnesses like diabetes or high blood pressure.

Hormonal disturbances such as diminished levels of testosterone or elevated prolactin production, over- or underproduction of thyroid hormone.

Diabetes, which often leads to atherosclerosis and impaired circulation, is probably the most common physical cause of impotence.

Impotence can be chronic or recurring, or it may occur as a single isolated incident. (I'll have to tell you about some of my embarrassing encounters  in another article, so stay tuned!)

Other Factors That Contribute To ED

In the past it was thought that erectile dysfunction was just a psychological problem, but know physicians and therapists have found that at least 85% of all known cases of ED are of some physical nature.

The Association for Male Sexual Dysfunction has identified over 200 drugs that may cause impotence.

The most common are alcohol, antidepressants, antihistamines, anti hypertensives, diuretics, narcotics, nicotine, sedatives, stomach acid inhibitors, and ulcer medications.
