The Symptoms of erectile dysfunction

Monday, 4 August 2014 07:30 by Leo March

The main symptom of erectile dysfunction is the inability to get and maintain an erection for satisfactory intercourse.

Erectile dysfunction should not be confused with ejaculation problems such as premature ejaculation, which is a condition where the process of arousal, orgasm and ejaculation occurs very rapidly.

Sometimes Erectile dysfunction only occurs in certain situations where for example, you may be able to get an erection during masturbation or you may find that you sometimes wake up with an erection but you are unable to get an erection with your sexual partner.

In these circumstances, it is likely that the underlying cause of Erectile dysfunction is primarily psychological or stress related.

Psychological issues tend to affect younger men, such as first night nerves and so on. In some cases there can be more serious psychological problems about sex that need the help of a psychosexual therapist.


Male sexual problems


It’s estimated that one man in 10 has a problem related to having sex, such as premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction.

Sexual dysfunction in a man  is when he can’t get, or keep, an erection and premature ejaculation is when his  ejaculation occurs very rapidly.

Being unable to get an erection is much more common than people realise. In the 20-40 age group it affects around 7-8% of men, in the 40-50 age group it affects 11%. In the over 60s it affects 40% and more than half of men over 70.

Sexual dysfunction and premature ejaculation can affect any man whether he is straight, gay, bisexual or transgender.


Medical conditions that can cause erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction can be an important signal to other issues.  It is associated with raised cholesterol, diabetes, low testosterone and raised blood pressure. Any of these can be a warning of future heart disease.

Some drugs can also cause erectile dysfunction, medicines such as beta-blockers used to treat raised blood pressure, antidepressants, antipsychotic drugs and anticonvulsant drugs. Alcohol, recreational drugs, smoking affects the blood supply to the areas of the penis that cause erections.
