Erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence, is one of the most common sexual dysfunctions among men, and affects around half of men ages 40-70. The chances of suffering from impotence increase as you get older. It is characterised by once or repeatedly failing to get an erection. Although it is a very common illness, very few men speak to their doctor about it. Remember that your doctor or GP is trained to deal with this kind of problem and there is nothing to be embarrassed about. It may be caused by either physical problems, like blockages in the blood vessels around the penis, or emotional difficulties such as relationship problems, depression or anxiety. The cause of your impotence will affect how you should be treated for it. You may choose to see a couple’s therapist, or take a medication to work around the issue. You should make lifestyle changes first, such as drinking less, losing weight and giving up smoking before taking medication. Viagra is the best known drug to manage erectile dysfunction, but there are newer and cheaper brands available too. You can buy these online from a doctor such as iMeds.
Erectile dysfunction is a common illness that affects around half of men between the ages of 40 and 70. It gets more likely as you get older, and you should make changes to your lifestyle before seeking medical help. However, it is still worth speaking to your doctor about as it may be a symptom of an underlying condition. There are many types of medication you can take, more than just Viagra. These drugs are called PDE-5 inhibitors, and increase the flow of blood to the penis, which makes it easier for you to get an erection.
