10 Surprising Facts About Erectile Dysfunction

Here are 10 shocking facts regarding erectile dysfunction that you probably didn't know.

  1. It's not just about achieving an erection. ED isn't simply about not being able to get an erection, however that is a defining feature of the disorder. The truth is that there are many degrees of ED that affect your ability to obtain and sustain an erection. This means that men with ED may be able to get an erection, but it won't sustain long enough to engage in sexual activity.

  2. In terms of numbers If you think you're alone in your struggle, the reality that ED affects 52 percent of men in the United States may provide some comfort. ED is more common as people get older. For example, 40% of men in their 40s have ED, while 70% of men in their 70s have it. However, age isn't always a factor.

  3. It's not always about your age. When it comes to the young and robust, ED does not discriminate. According to studies, 25% of men under the age of 40 have erection problems, while just 5% have full-blown ED.

  4. Erectile dissatisfaction (ED) is a term used to describe erectile dysfunction. In technical terms, ED is a problem that prevents you from obtaining or sustaining an erection due to a mental or physical issue. However, many men associate a lack of sex satisfaction with ED. If your sex life isn't what it used to be and you're losing interest, it could be a case of discontent rather than erectile dysfunction.

  5. It's in your blood Many occurrences of ED are associated with vascular issues. Blood fills the vessels in your penis when you have an erection. If you have a cardiovascular problem that causes your blood arteries to become clogged or impaired, it can make it difficult to get an erection. Circulatory difficulties in every region of your body, including your penis, are caused by conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, and diabetes.

  6. It's all about how you live. Your sexual health, as well as your overall health, is greatly influenced by your lifestyle patterns. Tobacco smoking and alcohol consumption are undeniably associated to ED. Obesity, or carrying too much weight, can also cause erection problems. On these fronts, the good news is that you can take control of your health by reducing alcohol consumption, quitting smoking, and losing weight.

  7. In your head Because getting an erection is as much a mental as it is a physical process, ED may become a problem if you've been through a traumatic event or are under a lot of stress. Men who suffer from melancholy, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder frequently express their dissatisfaction with their ED.

  8. Hormonal imbalance Your testosterone levels influence your sexual health in a variety of ways, the most important of which is how they affect your libido. Low testosterone levels can contribute to a lack of sex drive, which can lead to ED.

  9. Breaking up While it is uncommon, men's penises can "crack," causing major difficulties in obtaining an erection. The break is essentially a bursting of your blood vessels, which can be quite painful and cause swelling.

  10. There's more to life than pills There are a number of natural options available to you if you have ED that you may not be aware of. To restore your sexual health, we can utilize healing of the trauma, Karsai Nei Tsang genital bodywork, and lifestyle adjustments once we've identified the underlying problem.
