To obtain an erection blood flow must increase to the penis, unfortunately if this doesn’t/cannot occur then your will not get an erection. This is the most common cause. This situation is likely to be linked to people suffering cardiovascular disease, heart problems, diabetes and high blood pressure.
Less commonly you might have hormonal issues for example a lack of testosterone.
If you are just starting to suffer from EDS / ED have you considered lifestyle changes?
• Are you overweight? Try lose a few pounds it might make a significant difference,
• Do you smoke? Quit smoking, smoking is associated with EDS and low fertility
• Do you have a balanced diet? You should consider what you eat, do you eat 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day?
• Do you exercise? The NHS recommends those between 19 and 64 should be active daily and for at least 150 minutes a week. Exercise doesn’t need to be a trip to the gym though, it could be as simple as a brisk walk, anything that lifts your heart rate.
• Are you stressed? Stress and anxiety are not good for our bodies. Look to reduce stress, start breathing exercises and perhaps even yoga or meditation and make sure you get a good nights sleep.
• Do you drink alcohol? Try and reduce your intake in line with NHS and government guidelines. The NHS suggests not more than 14 units per week for those who are suffering from EDS / ED.
Sometimes you might find it difficult to get an erection, but know that you are able, ie erections in the morning on waking. It is likely in these situations that whilst there may be some physical issues there is probably an emotional component as well.
Anxiety and depression are often linked with erectile dysfunction and sometimes past failures will make obtaining erections in future situations more difficult. Do not be put of by this. Seek specialist advice from your doctor. You may find that ED treatments are useful.
