In this article, we will be talking about the management of erectile dysfunction (ED). To begin with, erectile dysfunction is the inability to achieve an erection for sexual intercourse. This may be a complex physiological and biological condition. Men of all ages are affected by this condition that ultimately changes their lives. This may be psychological, neurological or hormonal,. It can also be a symptom for cardiovascular diseases.
This table presents different categories and causes of erectile dysfunction.
Visit your doctor for accurate analysis of such condition. Your doctors usually have initial assessment. They would ask you about your sexual history, present medical condition, physiological health as well as surgical health. Some clinics would also use questionnaires to assess the gravity and causes of the condition. Afterwards, a physical examination is recommended as well as rectal examination of the prostate. Doctors would also give laboratory testing to check fluids from the person.
How do we prevent this condition? It should be noted that men should always maintain a healthy lifestyle, which includes avoid smoking and drinking alcohol, sensible eating and maintaining good physical health.
While men usually have short-term erectile dysfunction, that may be caused by short-term anxiety or stress, these dysfunctions can also be short-term. Once anxiety and stress disappear, it also disappears with it. However, when it persists, it is better to consult a doctor immediately to avoid long-term progression of the condition.
