Chronic Erectile Dysfunction Causes
Chronic ED is almost always due to insufficient blood flow.
Treatment options can work permanently to correct erectile dysfunction.
Unclog the correct pipe?
Repair the right faulty valve?
Common Causes of Erectile Dysfunction:
- Complications that affect the flow of blood into the groin area in order to achieve an erection
- Complications that affect the flow of blood within the penis in order to achieve an erection
- Complications that affect the flow of blood within the penis in order to retain sufficient blood to maintain an erection
- Problems affecting the nervous system that serves the penis ( i.e. Diabetes)
- Hormone insufficiency to fuel an erection: (low testosterone)
- Severe penile area injury or trauma: resulting in Peyronie’s Disease
Maintaining Penis Function with Age
Your Penis isn’t “designed” to quit working, even after age 90!
If it malfunctions, there is an underlying vascular issue.
Approximately 30 million men in the US alone (half between ages 40 & 70) suffer from ED symptoms. ED is not in itself a diagnosis! More commonly, it is a symptom of another health issue. It’s often the earliest indicator of an impending heart problem. Most people don’t realize, ED is not “supposed” to happen at any age. Our penis doesn’t “quit working” as we age. Rather, over time, aspects of the erection process need repair & maintenance over time. The body is designed to achieve & maintain erections until death.
Vascular Health, Not Virility
If you looked at your penis as most guys view the functionality of their car, you would feel better. The mechanisms share a lot in common. Like the oil that flows through your car engine, blood supply to your penis starts in your heart and flows through arteries in the belly to even smaller arteries that branch off to carry blood into the penis. Sexual stimulation causes your blood vessels to increase blood flow rapidly. If blood vessels are blocked (atherosclerosis) by coronary artery disease, you may not be able to achieve or maintain an erection. . . Kind of like a clogged fuel line!
Erectile Dysfunction Symptoms
Your ED symptoms may just save your engine!
Doctors understand it’s challenging to get men to stay on schedule with annual check-ups. About the only condition that will motivate a guy to see his doctor is failure with sexual performance.
Relationship Between Erectile Dysfunction and Heart Disease
ED and heart disease are considered two signs of the same disease process. The smaller arteries in the penis are affected by atherosclerosis sooner, perhaps three or more years before they cause heart disease symptoms. This clogged fuel line that first affects the penis, can later, if not repaired, shut down the engine known as your heart. According to the Mayo Clinic, erectile dysfunction may be a precursor to heart issues in men.
Research now shows that the reason erectile dysfunction precedes issues with the heart in men is related to the inner lining of blood vessels and their inability to supply the heart and the penis with proper blood flow.
A large international study found that men with erection issues were more likely to die from heart causes (i.e.: heart attack, stroke or be admitted to the hospital with heart failure) than men without.
Your Sexual Heath Can Improve Permanently
When first facing ED symptoms few men are comfortable talking about it: male sexual prowess is a rite of passage many guys embrace from early childhood. You may reduce your risk of erectile dysfunction by improving your heart health. Healthy lifestyle choices encourage you to stop smoking, lose weight & increase physical activity. If erectile dysfunction persists, oral medications are a common first treatment for ED. If oral medications don’t work for you, the penile implant may be an option. The implant is concealed inside the body. It offers support for an erection whenever desired.
