No comments

Inability to sustain an erection or erectile dysfunction? What's the difference anyway? If you are sexually active,then you most likely have experienced an episode or more of the above mentioned;especially as you grow older. You however wish it will never occur again and you were burning on top cylinders whenever called to action **😊. I know some men will deny it and you don't need to say;yes it can be embarrassing but breeze through these 10 facts below to quell your curiosity and improve function as the case may be.

1. You must understand that a penile erection is the hydraulic effect of extra blood entering and being maintained in the penis- must not always last as long as you want.

2. Inability to sustain is not an issue until occurrence becomes regular or intermittently recurrent- at which point it can be referred to as erectile dysfunction.

3. The most important organic/disease related causes are associated with problems from the heart or blood vessels e.g. Hypertension; problems with blood sugar processing e.g Diabetes mellitus;past surgeries especially:brain,prostatic or scrotal. other causes may include hormonal insufficiencies and drug side effects e.g. tobacco/nicotine in cigarette or alcohol overUSE.

Obesity has also been implicated. Excessive cycling is also a suspected associated risk factor 😏.  Majority of the time however,cause is psychological 😩- where erection and thus penetration fails due to anxiety/negative thoughts or feelings. A good way to differentiate is the presence/absence of erection during arousal from sleep early in the morning.

4. The occurrence is said to be 4 times or more higher amongst men in their 60's,compared to those in their 40's and below.

5. In the absence of uncontrolled or permanent organic/disease causes, experts have identified exercise,especially aerobic and certain fruits to be an effective treatment.

6. Carelessly using medications for self treatment can lead to priapism- a potentially painful condition in which,the erect penis does not return to it's flaccid (relaxed) state, despite absence of stimulation within 4 hours. SEE YOUR HEALTHCARE PROVIDER IF YOU HAVE CONCERNS.

7. There are purpose designed external vacuum pumps that can be used to attain an erection for those who must use it- these help to draw blood into the penis by applying negative pressure.

8. As a last resort,a prostatic implant or artificial erectile rod can be inserted by a Urologist/ genitourinary Surgeon but not without it's own risk.

9. FDA(The U.S. Food & Drug Agency) does not recommend alternative/herbal therapies for treatment of the condition. I don't think NAFDAC(The Nigerian National Agency For Food & Drugs Administration & control) does either.

10. During the late 16th and 17th centuries in France, erectile dysfunction was considered a crime as well as legal grounds for divorce- practice involved inspection of complaints by court experts**😀😅. Was declared obscene and abolished in 1677.

Now you know how serious the matter can get. Unfortunately, I learn the condition is still a risk factor for divorce in todays society. You however know better so educate your spouses/partners or get them to read as well. For more information, consult references below.
