Correlation Between Smoking and Erectile Dysfunction in Men

MD - General Medicine

Correlation Between Smoking and Erectile Dysfunction in Men

There are many factors such as physical and psychological factors in their wide rages that can cause erectile dysfunction in men. One of the causes is known to be smoking because smoking has the capability to destroy blood vessels and arteries not to open well enough to allow free flow of blood. The World Health Organization always warn that smokers are liable to die young because of many health risks they exposing themselves to. Among many such diseases include heart disease, stroke, cardiovascular diseases, and pulmonary disease.

Do not let it cross your mind that Viagra will be of help. Recent findings had revealed that, for a rigid, stronger and quicker erection in men, smoking must be stopped.

This writes up tends to do justice to the correlation between smoking and erectile dysfunction in men and as well shed light on many reasons why you need to quit smoking because smoking can damage blood vessels and impede regular blood flow that can cause erectile dysfunction.

Signs and Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

There are many signs and causes of erectile dysfunction in men. There is a great need to seek medical help for any of the signs that will later be listed here, most especially if it has been re-occurring.

This will enable your medical doctor to examine the fundamental cause and what are needed to be treated. Recent findings have shown that there is a strong correlation between smoking and erectile dysfunction and males who completely quit smoking can have stronger, more rigid erections when compared to those who do not quit.

Signs of Erectile Dysfunction

Below are the signs and symptoms of erectile dysfunction:

  • Dropped interest in sex
  • Difficulty in having rigid erection
  • Inability to sustain an erection while having sex
  • Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

As it was mentioned earlier, there are many causes of erectile dysfunction. Listed below are the major causes of ED:

How is Erection Possible?
Erection occurs when there is an increase in blood flow to the penis which is always stirred by sexual imaginations or physical touch with the penis. When stirred, the penis becomes relax and make way for increases blood flow via the penile arteries into the two chambers in the penis which is referred to as the corpora cavernosa.

As soon as the chambers become filled up, the penis becomes rigid. When the muscles contract and the accrued blood flow out via the penile veins, then erection become placid.

Consequent upon the above, erectile dysfunction happens when there is an issue at any stage of the process.

However, the chemicals present in cigarette have the capacity to destroy the blood vessels in men's penis and affect its rigidity. The chemicals not only have adverse effects on the penis but also injure the kidneys, lung, brain, heart and many tissues in the entire body.

Revelation from Researches

Studies have shown that men who smoke cause more harm to their sperm than those who do not smoke. Smokers' testes and accessory glands were observed to have inflammation which results in damaged sperm. This smoking habit negatively affects the health movement in the sperm that leads to increased DNA fragmentation in the sperm.

Erectile dysfunction is known to develop at any adult stage. But it tends to be common as men advance in age. Researchers have discovered that the fundamental problem of erectile dysfunction in younger men is most likely caused by inhalation from a cigarette.

People who smoke are at much higher risk of having erectile dysfunction compared to non-smokers. The level of damages done to your erectile function, your age and damage to other parts of the body can affect the level of erectile function reversibility when you quit smoking.

Impacts of Smoking on the Sexual Health

Active smoking and in some instances passive smoking can cause erectile dysfunction. Smoking has the capacity to destroy healthy muscles in the penis which in-turn affect erectile functioning. This also can lead to a lesser libido.

Cigarette smoking has an adverse effect on the sex life of both men and women and brings about infertility. Also, there is this problem of having a reduction in the size of the penis. Now, imagine the psychological effects it will have on someone who is used to having a larger size of a penis. There is the problem of infertility too.

Coping and Managing Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction has a demonstrative impact on the affected man and his partner. Men with this condition usually feel frustrated, sad, little or no confidence and furious let alone a partner who is being denied sexual pleasure. The good news is that erectile dysfunction or impotence can be treated.

Some of the steps in alleviating this issue include being honest, opening up to both your partner and the doctor. Communication is an essential tool in the analysis and management of the state of your health. There is a great need to always let your partner know how you are feeling for adequate support and assistance.

Also, note that you will require patience with self in your treatment and recovery process, having it in mind that individual response to treatment is relative.

Dear lybrate-user, You seem to be having many symptoms of a serious mental disorder. Of course it will be treatable if diagnosed properly. Please don't get married without treatment. It will add to your burden. With treatment you can find a job and you will not feel others are exploiting you. Please take your mother along to a psychiatrist to give further information to diagnose you. She may help you to co operate with treatment.

Yes lybrate-user, tobacco increases anxiety since it alerts the brain directly within seconds of its use. Moreover you may need to use tobacco often and repeatedly. There are many other health hazards due to tobacco. Aatif, you are young. Stopping tobacco at this age is comparatively less difficult than at later age. Motivate yourself not to use tobacco. If you are still anxious, take relaxation therapy or anxiolytic tablets from a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist.

Some of the "typical" responses to frustration include anger, quitting (burn out or giving up), loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, stress and depression. Anger management: 10 tips to tame your temper ANGER: There is a saying "Frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression." Direct anger, is expressed toward the object perceived as the cause of the frustration. If a machine does not work, you might hit it or kick it. If someone gets in your way, you could verbally threaten them or push them aside. If the source of the frustration is too powerful or threatening for direct aggression, displaced aggression is often used. The aggression is redirected toward a less threatening and more available object. An angry person often acts without thinking. The person has given in to the frustration and they have given up restraint. Anger can be a healthy response if it motivates us to positive action but all too often the actions we engage in when angry are destructive. Indeed, if we could see a videotape of ourselves getting angry, the humiliation might well help cure us of anger. When you feel frustration building, you have to practice learned responses that lead to healthy actions instead of destructive ones. GIVING UP: Giving up on a goal can be productive if the goal is truly out of reach. However, more often giving up (quitting or being apathetic) is another form of giving in to frustration. When repeatedly frustrated, people can drop out of school, quit jobs, or move away. Apathy is giving up all of your goals, so you cannot be frustrated by trying to reach them. We live in difficult time and we have to be persistent in order to accomplish. Consider how many projects you began, and then gave up, because you became frustrated and lost patience. Make a list of things you started and quit because they seemed too difficult. Now calculate the disappointment and loss you suffered by not dealing with the frustration in a more healthy way. Try to remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit. Losing your temper means you're a quitter. LOSS OF CONFIDENCE: is a terrible frequent side effect of giving up and not fulfilling your goal. A loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, means that If we quit once, then the next time we plan a goal, we may not be able to accurately assess our ability to carry it out and we stop trusting ourselves and our own abilities. This became a self-fulfilling and self-destructive attitude. You need to be able to learn that when the going gets tough, you say to yourself "It is worth it!" and by following through, it not only gets the job done, but it builds self-confidence. STRESS: is the "wear and tear" our body and mind experiences as we adjust to the frustrations our continually changing environment. Too frequently, extreme, or prolonged frustration and stress strains us and generates distress signals. Our body experiences distress signals in a variety of ways, often in the form of: irritability, anger, fatigue anxiety, headache, depression, stomach aches, hypertension, migraines, ulcers, heart attacks, or colitis. DEPRESSION: Depression can affect almost every aspect of your life. It affects people of all ages, income, race, and cultures. Depression can affect the way you eat and sleep the way you feel about yourself, the way one think about things, and the way you interact with others. While we all feel depression at various appropriate times in our lives, excess or inappropriate depression cannot be easily dismissed or wished away. OTHER REACTIONS: abuse of drugs & alcohol is self-destructive and usually futile attempt at dealing with frustration, as are many eating and weight problems and addictions Whenever the immediate effects of the addictive behaviour wear off, users find themselves back in the same, or even worse, frustrating situation. Learning To Deal With Frustration It is unrealistic to believe you can rid yourself of frustration forever, but you can learn to do things to minimize your frustrations and to make sure you do not engage in unhealthy responses to frustration. You will need to learn to distinguish between what you hope will happen, what will probably happen, and what actually happened. Life inevitably has its ups and downs -- its moments of relaxation and times of tension. When you learn to truly accept this reality, you come one step closer to being able to deal with frustration in a healthy way. There are several types of problems that we encounter in everyday living: those which you know can be solved, those which you are not sure if they can be solved or not, those you know are totally out of your control, and those you are so confused about that you do not even know what the problem is. You need to be able to accurately assess your abilities to alter situations that prevent you from solving your problems and reaching your goal. Then you will be able to assess which of the types of problems you have encountered, and you will then be able to develop a realistic plan. Learning to take things in stride will also help you to be more content and happy which, in turn, will help you to more easily overcome anger and frustration. If you are upset, sad, anxious, or depressed you will have less patience and tolerance for everything and everybody.

Sounds to me like you are into an anger related depression. If you have not been on medication and you want to remain so, you will have to work very hard to recover from this condition. You must first of all seek the help of a counselor, ideally. If that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor you will need to do so and cooperate right through. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back, if you are not already married. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.
