Erectile dysfunction (ED) can be caused by a number of different fcators. Whether or not it can be cured depends on what exactly is causing ED. If ED cannot be permanently cured, ED medication - Viagra, Levitra, Cialis and Spedra - can be used to treat your ED, allowing you to get and maintain an erection.
It may be possible to permanently cure ED if you experience ED due to:
Lifestyle factors such as smoking, being overweight, drinking alcohol and drug use can lead to ED. You may be able to reverse your ED by making changes in these areas. Exercising regularly and eating a healthy diet can help you reverse ED, but it is also important to stop smoking, drinking or taking drugs.
Stress and anxiety can reduce your libido and cause ED. Getting an erection and enjoying sex depends a lot upon different chemicals in your body being in sync. Many men suffer from performance anxiety, which can be specifically related to sex. This can be caused by worries surrounding your own ability to perform, satisfying your partner, poor body-image, and low self esteem. Whatever the cause of your stress or anxiety, a counsellor, sex therapist or cognitive behavioural therapist may be able to help you. You may also find that you can make small changes to reduce your stress or anxiety levels. Self-help methods related to cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness or meditation may produce positive results.
Every medication has potential side effects. For some medications, this includes ED. ED is a common side effect of blood pressure meications for example, which can work to regulate blood flow. If you are experiencing ED as a side effect of medication, you should speak to your doctor to see if there may be an alternative. Often times, your sexual function will return to normal within a few days after stopping the offending drug.
The risk of underlying medical conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes increases with age. So too does the risk of ED. High blood pressure can interfere with the blood supply to your penis, and diabetes can affect both the nerves and blood vessels that you need to get aroused. Depending on the condition and how far along you are, you may be able to reverse or ameliorate ED associated with these conditions. The best option is to speak to your doctor for specific advice. They may tell you to make lifestyle changes, such as improved diet and more exercise. However, often times, individuals with underlying medical conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure, will need medical treatment regardless.
Injury can come in many forms. A common cause of ED is excessive cycling. Cycling can put pressure on the perineum (the area between the testicles and anus). Nerves and blood vessels that are important for an erection, such as the pudendal nerve, run through the perineum. Putting prolonged pressure on this nerve, which is important in erectile functioncan, can result in ED. The damage may be minor and reversible, and people often recover after finding a better bicycle saddle, taking more frequent breaks from cycling or reducing their cycling altogether. If you think cycling or any other injury is the cause of your ED, it may be worth speaking to a doctor, especially a urologist, to help maximize your chance of a full recovery.
