Myths about Erectile Dysfunction

Myths about Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is the inability for a man to get and maintain an erection that’s firm enough to have penetrative sex. Many men have erectile dysfunction at some time in their lives. It can come and go.

Erectile dysfunction can have a range of causes, both physical and psychological. It is usually a combination of both. Sometimes there is no clear cause.

Erectile dysfunction symptoms might include persistent:

  • Trouble getting an erection
  • Trouble keeping an erection
  • Reduced sexual desire

Let us bust some common myths and misconceptions about the cause and treatment of erectile dysfunction and learn why it’s important to seek professional help for effective Erectile Dysfunction Treatment.

  1. It only happens in Older Men

Yes, it is a more common problem in older men, but that doesn’t mean if you’re middle-aged or a senior that you have to live with ED. Erectile dysfunction does not discriminate – it can happen to men at any age. While erectile dysfunction is not as common in younger men, it still happens; and more often than younger guys will admit.

  1. There is No Cure

Erectile dysfunction can most often be treated safely and effectively both through natural remedies and with medication. Oral medications are a successful erectile dysfunction treatment for many men.

Your doctor will consider your particular situation to determine which medication might work best. If medications aren’t effective or appropriate in your case, your doctor might recommend a different treatment. 

  1. Erectile Dysfunction is not a serious problem

Although ED itself isn’t dangerous, it can be an early warning sign of a serious health condition, such as diabetes or heart problems. Men with underlying diseases, such as prostate problems, high blood pressure, vascular disease, high cholesterol, Peyronie disease and kidney failure are also more likely to develop ED.

4.   Erectile dysfunction is largely psychological

ED often stems from physical problems, and more than one of these could combine. There’s typically a problem with blood flow in your penis when erections fail, and there are many factors that contribute to poor blood flow, such as medication, smoking, or alcohol use, as well as disorders including high blood pressure and diabetes.

5.   Men with ED Have No Sexual Desire

This is another myth that needs to be put to bed. A man could have sexual hormones raging through his body and still struggle to get or maintain an erection due to other underlying issues. ED doesn’t have a direct association with a lack of sexual desire in many instances. If a man is suffering from ED, he may shy away from having sexual liaisons for fear of not being able to perform, not because he has no desire.

ED is highly treatable, and getting expert help early can help you to identify its cause and work out the most effective. By taking action early and talking to your healthcare provider, you can treat erectile dysfunction and enjoy a fulfilling, satisfying sex life.
