Signs, Symptoms and Treatment of Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction (also known as ED or impotence) is a health condition that chronically impacts sexual performance in men.

ED typically affects men aged 40 or older, and nearly 7 out of 10 men will experience ED by the time they are 70. However, some studies show that nearly half of young men have struggled with erection issues before the age of 35.

ED is defined as trouble getting an erection, difficulty maintaining an erection, and/or a reduced sexual drive. While it can be related to medications, heart disease, or alcohol, ED can also be caused by lifestyle factors, such as smoking, high stress, lack of sleep, and even excessive bike riding.

Sometimes ED can also be related to your mental state. Anxiety (especially performance anxiety), negative self-image, unrealistic expectations, and porn addiction can all contribute to difficulty with sexual performance. It’s important to understand if your ED is caused by psychological issues or physiological issues so that you can find the right treatment or medication for you.

A few common medical conditions that can cause or contribute to ED include: Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, coronary artery disease, and injury or surgery in the pelvic area.

Fortunately Erectile Dysfunction is often very treatable once you’ve identified the root cause. Popular medications like Sildenafil (Viagra),Tadalafil (Cialis), or Vardenafil (Levitra) can be quickly and privately obtained from reputable and discrete providers, such as hims.

There are also more comprehensive treatment options, such as penile implants, pumps, injection therapy, and even sex therapy / psychotherapy.

ED affects millions of men, and it can sometimes be a warning sign for other health issues or lifestyle factors you need to address. If you’ve been experiencing impotence or ED-like symptoms, it can also be a good idea to see if any of the following apply:

  • Are you experiencing relationship difficulties?
  • Are you drinking a lot of alcohol or taking drugs?
  • Are you under a lot of stress?
  • Have you been sleeping poorly lately?

If you answered yes to any of the above, you might be experiencing a temporary issue due to lifestyle factors. However, even if you don’t have ED, you deserve a satisfying and rewarding sex life, and it’s important to treat and resolve any issues.
