Herpes Combat Kit Erectile Dysfunction: Modern Mans Result of Aging

by James Walterson

Erectile dysfunction is the inability in men to maintain a solid erection during intercourse. This problem reduces the level of pleasure between partners and can increasingly hinder the willingnes of partners to attempt sexual intercourse. Today there are many types of methods available on the market to help with erectile dysfunction or male impotency.

As if it wasn't difficult enough to establish new relationships or maintain existing long-term ones, having difficulty with sexual function can add considerable stress to the relationship.

This can result in men shying away from women just because of having to cope with erectile dysfunction. It can reduce the confindence level of men whether trying to get into a new relationship or having already been in an existing relationship for a long period of time.

Erectile dysfunction goes back sometime in history. It has become more open in discussion and increased understanding in recent times from more information being available to men, particularly from the internet where people can find detailed information on any subject much more readily.

Male impotence can be more of an emotional experience rather than a physical one. Erectile dysfunction, more commonly referred to as e.d., consists mostly of the ineffective attempt for men to achieve an erection and maintain it throughout the sexual act.

Erectile dysfunction can be the result of one of the several delicate functions of the body to work less than perfectly to bring about undesired results. Unhealthy lifestyles can contribute to the physical malfunction including drinking, smoking, and lack or proper diet and exercise.

Sensory or mental stimulus or both initiates erection. The brain and local nerves send impulses which lead the muscles of the corpora cavernosa to loosen up, permitting blood to flow in and seal the spaces. The blood generates pressure in the corpora cavernosa, in turn expanding the penis. The tunica albuginea helps lock in blood in the corpora cavernosa, thus sustaining erection.

Erectile dysfunction symptoms can be enumerated as: - Inability to have erections while masturbating or while having sex with your partner - Inability to maintain erection firm enough for sexual intercourse - Inability to maintain an erection long enough for sexual intercourse.

Physiological factors such as vascular disease, diabetes and many more can be causes for erectile dysfunction. Apart from physiological factors, psychological factors such as stress, anxiety, guilt can also lead to erectile dysfunction. In fact psychological factors amplify the physical factors. As per the studies done, ED generally occurs among men above or in the age group of 40-65. Nevertheless, it should not be considered as an inevitable part of aging.

ED can be treated at any age. With the advancement of medical science, medications have evolved in order to treat erectile dysfunction effectively. Though, these medications may vary from individual to individual.

The market is flooded with a variety of erectile dysfunction drugs. These drugs work on the same principle, to increase the blood flow into the penis and thus sexually stimulate men and causing an erection. However these drugs often have several types of side effects which may not be desirable to the user.

There are also other types of products including natural supplements that help to produce similar results and increase in sexual performance, but without the added undesirable side effects.
