Erectile DysfunctionWhat is erectile dysfunction (ED)?

Erectile dysfunction occurs when men consistently have problems getting and maintaining erections. Most men have occasionally experienced difficulty with erections, but when it occurs often, it can be a sign of ED.

What causes ED?

There are many causes of male impotence (or erectile dysfunction). These can be physical, psychological, or lifestyle factors. According to a study by the University of Maryland Medical Center, the most common reasons for ED are physical factors. 

Physical Factors: Health issues that might lead to ED include heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, neurological disorders, side effects of medication, and other health conditions. 

Psychological Factors: Anxiety, stress, depression, and relationship problems can lead to ED. Seeing a therapist can help work through any underlying issues that may be affecting your sexual performance. 

Lifestyle Factors: Smoking, alcohol use, and other substance abuse can lead to ED.

What can I do to help with my ED?

The study from the University of Maryland recommends several lifestyle changes that can help rectify ED. 

Diet: Having a heart-healthy diet is important in preventing ED because it might be related to circulation problems. Some foods are also claimed to be aphrodisiacs, but there is no evidence for these claims. 

Weight Control: If you are overweight or obese, you are at greater risk for developing ED. Try to maintain a healthy weight.

Exercise: Exercising regularly helps lower stress, increase heart health, and maintain a healthy weight. 

Quit Smoking: Smoking may lead to ED and has no positive health benefits. Talk to your doctor about how you can kick the habit for good.

Monitor Alcohol Consumption: Excessive drinking can lead to ED. Make sure you are drinking in moderation. 

Stay Sexually Active: Frequent erections help stimulate blood flow to the penis. 

Change Medications: Some medications might cause ED. Talk to your doctor about changing medications or reducing your dosage.

• Psychotherapy: Therapy is often helpful for patients and their partners.
