If you’re like most people, you probably think age is the primary cause of erectile dysfunction. While older men do sometimes experience ED or impotence, it’s not their age that prevents their body from responding. In reality, a lack of adequate blood flow is the root cause of most cases of ED.
What is ED?
Erectile dysfunction occurs when a man cannot maintain an erection long enough and firm enough to engage in sexual intercourse. Many men will experience ED from time to time, but if the problem occurs over an extended time frame, medical intervention may be necessary.
What causes ED?
While ED can result for a variety of reasons, including heavy drinking, obesity, stress, diabetes, poor dental health and conditions like Peyronie’s disease, poor circulation is the problem in 80 percent of cases. The cause is physiological. The penis includes two corpora cavernosa. If blood flow to these chambers is restricted for whatever reason, the man could have difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection.
Medications like Viagra or Cyalis are the most common solution for ED. These meds are quite effective at helping men overcome ED, but they only offer a temporary solution. Men must anticipate a sexual encounter so that they can take a pill in time to be ready. The requirement to take medication eliminates any spontaneity. Plus, unwanted side effects often accompany oral medications. Headache, flushing, back pain and dizziness are common. And some men can’t take ED medications due to high blood pressure, heart disease or diabetes.
