Erectile Dysfunction Symptoms, Causes & Treatment
The most notable symptom of erectile dysfunction is the prolonged inability to get or maintain an erection firm enough for sex. This can potentially lead to other issues, including:
- Loss of sexual desire
- Relationship stress
While occasional erection troubles are not usually a cause for concern, it’s important to speak with a doctor if you frequently have trouble getting or keeping an erection.
Erectile dysfunction is associated with a wide array of underlying medical conditions, mental health problems and behaviors, including but not limited to:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Hormone imbalances, including low testosterone levels
- Kidney disease
- Advanced age
- Sleep disorders
- Anxiety and depression
- Drug use
- Excessive alcohol consumption
- Tobacco use
Erectile dysfunction may be caused by one or a combination of these factors. Certain medications also can increase the risk of erectile dysfunction.
Optimal erectile dysfunction treatment will depend on its underlying cause. Some men are able to improve their condition by losing excess weight, exercising more and finding healthy ways to cope with or reduce stress. For others, medicines created to treat erection problems are successful in restoring sexual function. A doctor will determine the root of your erectile dysfunction, detail treatment options and help you make an educated decision about your care.
