What is Erectile Dysfunction?Erectile Dysfunction (ED) has been defined as the inability to obtain and/or maintain an erection hard enough for satisfactory sexual intercourse. It can occur occasionally or frequently, and men are able to self-recognise the condition, which can vary in severity from mild (a soft erection) to severe (no erection at all).
What causes Erectile Dysfunction?It can be caused by several different factors, both physical and psychological, which in turn can cause issues with confidence, self-esteem and depression.
The main physical factors are; Diabetes. Around a quarter of diabetic men aged between 30-34 are affected by occasional ED. This increases to around 75% in the 60-64 age group. Inadequate blood flow. For example, constricted blood vessels or furred up arteries. Issues that affect the heart often affect ED, e.g. smoking.
Heavy drinking. The side effects of prescribed drugs. This includes drugs that are used to treat high blood pressure or heart disease.
The main psychological factors are stress, anxiety, depression, sexual boredom and relationship conflicts.
