Erectile Dysfunction, or impotence, may feel like an embarrassing problem for some men, however, it is known to affect more than half of all men aged between 40 - 70. If you feel you are unable to achieve or maintain an erection when sexually excited, then you may be suffering from Erectile Dysfunction.
Erectile Dysfunction problems occur more regular in men with high blood pressure or men that suffer heart problems, as Erectile Dysfunction is caused by insufficient blood flow to the penis. ED is also associated with men with high cholesterol levels or diabetes, men with hormone problems, or after a serious injury or surgery. Even though a large number of men suffer from Erectile Dysfunction, 90% of men refuse to seek treatment.
Most common cases of Erectile Dysfunction are due to the narrowing of the small arteries within the penis. These arteries in the penis are considerably smaller so the blood flow can become more of a problem quicker than with blood flow to the heart, or legs, which is why it is important to seek medical treatment if you feel you are suffering from Erectile Dysfunction, as it may be linked to other medical problems.
