Erectile Dysfunction (ED, or impotence) is a kind of sexual dysfunction that is characterized by the inability of men to reach or develop an erected penis during sexual interaction.
What is erection?
An erection in the penis is the hydraulic effect achieved when blood enters and is retained in sponge-like tissues within the penis. The process of erection is initiated as a result of sexual arousal.
The most important causes of erectile dysfunction of organic nature are diabetes, cardiovascular disease, problems of neurological nature (prostatectomy surgery trauma), side effects from drugs, and hypogonadism.
There is also psychological impotence—when erection or even penetration fails due to psychological reasons (different feelings or thoughts). It is less frequent than physical impotence, and in most cases, it can be helped. Psychological impotence is often treated with a placebo effect.
ED can easily lead to severe psychological consequences and can be tied to difficulties in relationships and also to masculine self-image.
First line treatment of ED
The first line of treatment for ED consists of taking PDE5 inhibitor drugs (you can buy sildenafil-containing medications like Viagra, Silagra, etc.). Erectile dysfunction treatment can also involve inserting Prostaglandin polls in the urethra, injections into the penis, a penis pump, a penile prosthesis, and vascular reconstructive surgery.
