What causes ED?

For generations ED was seen by many as a psychological problem in men or just thenormal process of aging with no solutions. It was a taboo subject that guys would keep to themselves as it was a cause of embarrassment. With more recent advancements in science, social policies and research, we have new knowledge about impotence. We know that there is more than just aging and psychology to blame. Even though, as men get older it will take themslightly longer to get an erection, ED is not an age problem. The truth is that typically, erectile dysfunction  in menover the age of fifty, there may be physical conditions that cause the problem.

A few of  of the main causes of ED in men who are older might involve the vascularsystem. Issues with the blood supply to the penis is a major contributor to ED. 

Also, its proven that smokingcauses constructions within the capillarity, and that means many smokers will start to eventually experience symptoms of ED. Chronic medical conditions like obesity, Diabetes and atherosclerosis are causes. It's known that as much as one out of every three diabetics experience some form of ED. 

Another major cause is hormonal imbalances. In men, low testosterone levels cause a disruption in a man’s abilities to physically engage in sexual activity so getting tested and starting TRT may be a viable option that has additional benefits to health and quality of life as well.

Drugs and alcohol will also contribute. Sometimes men will be unable to perform because of intoxication, or  Because theprocesses which control the flow of blood going in and out of the penis is through our nervous system, certain medications may interfere with thesignals and may be another huge contributor to ED in men of all ages. Somepotential medications could include several types of prescription stimulant and antihistamines as well as blood pressure meds and diuretics. Also it's possible that sedatives and medication for cancers and anti-depressants can cause erectile dysfunction.. It’s important to let your doctor know about all  the various side effects you are experiencing with any medications, so that they could  offer alternatives when possible and find alternative treatments if suitable.

With younger guys, Erectile dysfunction can be even more difficult, as it's not expected, normal and  traditionally had been seen as a weakness and deficiency in their manhood which was causing this. caused by a variety of reasons. Interestingly, one of the major factors for ED in young men is going to be psychological in nature. Occurrences of past sexual abuse, an individual's  fear of intimacy, personal  feeling of inadequacy, depressionand fatigue as well as stress, may all contribute. Unfortunately, when ED does happen for men in their 20's, 30's or 40's, it only exacerbates the psychological pressure that's placed on a man and itbecomes increasingly likely that the condition will continue and the situation often worsens as sex is associated with anxiety.
