You should know that erectile dysfunction means not achieving an erection or partially achieving an erection as this will make a man unable to have sexual intercourse. Here are some of the potential courses of erectile dysfunction that you should know.
The first one is medication. You find that medication is good but it comes with some side effects which can cause erectile dysfunction. Here we have medicines such as antidepressants, antipsychotic and blood pressure medication. If you believe that your medication is causing erectile dysfunction, you should discuss additional treatment with your doctor. Because of that your doctor will be in a position to prescribe an additional medication to help you achieve your medication.
In addition, erectile dysfunction can also be caused by high blood pressure. It has been confirmed that two-thirds of men with high blood pressure experience erectile dysfunction. This is because it damages the blood vessels that deliver blood to the male genitals. One thing with this is that it will also prevent ejaculation and general sexual desire.
Besides, we also have insecurity. You find that your brain needs stimulation for it to send signals to increase the amount of blood to your genitals. But if you feel insecure around your partner your brain will not send off the signals.
Apart from that, we have anti-baldness drugs. One thing that you should know with many anti-baldness drugs is that they contain finasteride which interferes with testosterone production. Remember that not all anti-baldness drugs can result in erectile problems.
The other cause of erectile dysfunction is Peyronie’s disease. It is essential to note that these disease cause overproduction of scar tissue as this will produce a bending sensation during erection which results in the loss of sexual desire.
Steroids is another thing that causes erectile dysfunction. It is essential to note that steroids always give you a muscular physique being that it has artificial testosterone. One bad thing with this is that it will make your natural testosterone levels to fluctuate from high to low. One thing that you need to know is that your body needs healthy testosterone balance to achieve an erection.
Last but not least, let us look at cycling. One good thing with exercise is that it can effectively treat erectile dysfunction but you should not opt for cycling. This is because it puts weight on the perineum which is the skin between the anus and testicle. You find that this skin is essential because it is the channel that supplies the blood to the genitals which will result into erectile issues since there is an insufficient supply of blood.
