Erectile Dysfunction

Briefly about Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (impotence) is inability to achieve or maintain adequate erection, which in turn limits or makes impossible satisfactory sexual intercourse conduct. Erectile dysfunction is a widespread disease. According to World Health Organization, one in ten men over age of 21 years notice erectile dysfunction.

Erectile Dysfunction Causes

Currently, there are five main groups of causes leading to erectile dysfunction:

  • psychological disorders (depression, drug addiction, alcoholism, specific psychopathological disorders – fear of sexual impotence, etc.);
  • endocrine disorders (decreased sex glands function (hypogonadism), diabetes, prolactinoma);
  • vascular system disorders (arterial sclerotic disease of penile blood vessels, arteries blockage of small pelvis, violation of blood circulation in penile vessels, penile venous system disorders);
  • organic (anatomical) changes in penis (Peyronie’s disease, fibrosis and sclerosis of cavernous tissue);
  • neurological disorders (cerebral circulatory disorders, spinal cord diseases, multiple sclerosis, etc.).Erectile Dysfunction

How Erection Appear?

During the last century, polls conducted among population showed that list of stress related to marriage is headed by money. Sociologists simply did not ask people about sex, and respondents themselves did not give such information. When list began to include sexual issues, monetary problems have receded into the background. Even among happily married couples, about 50% of men mentioned any sexual difficulties (among women, even less satisfied – about 25%).

Indeed, being one of pleasures of life, high-grade sex contributes to good emotional state. Sexual disorders often cause people a lot of unnecessary sufferings – unnecessary because there are many good ways to adjust them.

Penis in Normal Condition

For most of its length, penis consists of two cylindrical bodies closely adjacent to each other, called cavernous bodies. Under them spongy body passes, inside which there is the urethra. The names “spongy” and “cavernous” quite accurately characterize them, since cylinders are permeated with large veins, almost empty until erection onset.

To penis base paired sciatic-cavernous muscles are attached. Cutting and blocking veins, they contribute to erection appearance, stopping blood outflow from penis. However, these muscles in themselves do not produce erection – erection comes when penis is filled with blood. For this, it requires healthy blood vessels and nerves.Erection
