What is an Erectile Dysfunction diagnosis?
When a man is unable to attain or maintain an erection during sex, it is often diagnosed as an Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Around 50% of men over the age of 40 struggled with ED, making it a fairly common sexual health issue. While ED itself is not known to be physically harmful or threatening, it can be linked to other issues such as vascular disease, renal failure, prostate cancer, emotional health, and a variety of heart conditions. Because of this link, health professionals often recommend that men suffering from ED seek professional help. You can learn more about the Southwest’s premier ED specialists here.
Who is most likely to experience Erectile Dysfunction?
Although Erectile Dysfunction is most common in men over the age of 40, it can affect men of every age and background. In the same way a car or computer works, a healthy erection requires many internal systems working together. Male arousal can be affected by issues involving the networking on the brain, nervous system, cardiovascular system, hormones, and even emotions. Each of these internal systems contribute to the success of a male erection. With this many factors at play, the likelihood of any man experiencing ED in his lifetime is very high.
What symptoms point to an Erectile Dysfunction?
You may be suffering from ED if you have experienced trouble with:
- Achieving an erection.
- Sustaining an erection.
- Sexual desire.
As mentioned before, sexual arousal can be affected by a variety of factors — from the less concerning (too much alcohol in your system) to the more serious (heart condition or disease). Because of this, we deeply advice every man experiencing ED to schedule an appointment with a sexual health professional.
