My sister suffered from bronchiectasis condition two years back and she had undergone a cardiothoracic (Key-Hole) surgery one year back. For the last four months, she has been suffering from cold (runny nose) and breathing difficulties. Is there anything serious to worry about this condition? Is there any further treatment necessary to cure this condition?
Knowing Erectile Dysfunction. Part 1: Don't Get Carried Away By Misconceptions
What is Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?
A person having erectile dysfunction (ED) is not able to achieve and/or maintain an erection of the penis sufficient for sexual activity. So, penis do not get hard at all or not enough for doing sex.
ED is responsible for great deal of stress and anxiety as well as low self-confidence in men. Mostly its occasional, when you cannot get an erection and it is only temporary. Normally after emotional or physical stimulation there is an increased filling of blood in sponge like tissue of penis and decreased blood flow out of penis, so blood remain trapped in penis and it becomes hard and erect.
Your ability to have erection is dependent of multiple factors like our emotions, hormones, nerves, blood vessels and cells of penis itself. A problem with any of these elements can cause ed. It can occur at any age, but becomes more common with increasing age. In the older adult male, it is a major problem affecting more than 75% of men.
Common Causes of ED
Physical causes indicate you have problems with penile structure itself or any bodily disease affecting it. Diseases include less blood flow to the penis or injury of the nerves going to the penis (for example, multiple sclerosis, a stroke, parkinson's disease, spinal injury etc.).
Also lack of male sexual hormone called testosterone, alcohol and drug abuse, clogged blood vessels (atherosclerosis) and side effects of some medications causes ed. Sometimes psychological issues like anxiety, stress due to work or home environment, depression, relationship difficulties leads to ed.
Myths Associated with ED
Myth 1: ED is part and parcel of your body's aging process
Contrary to popular belief, ED is not a normal part of the aging process. If you're having difficulty in getting an erection, the underlying cause can be medical in nature such as undiagnosed or diagnosed cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure or diabetes.
Myth 2: ED can't be reversed
Through the right treatment and certain lifestyle changes, most of the cases of ED can be reversed to almost normal. It is said that sexual health and erectile performance can be enhanced when you improve the health of your heart. Exercising to bring about weight loss and quitting smoking are ways that experts advocate for improving the health of your heart.
Myth 3: You are the only person to suffer from this problem
The common belief that ed affects only a few men is not true. Scientific studies show that ed strikes about 5% of men aged 40 years and between 15-25% of men aged 65 years.
Myth 4: It's completely in your head
This isn't true at all. The source of the problem could be certain parts of your body. In most cases, the cause is usually certain physiological problems such as heart disease, clogged arteries, high cholesterol, and parkinson's diseases etc
Myth 5: Only drugs and surgery can help you remove the problem
ED can be treated using a number of treatment options. Apart from pills and surgery, simple lifestyle changes can help to provide respite from the problem. Decreasing the consumption of alcohol, losing weight and even quitting smoking can improve your sexual health. Moreover, since the problem can also be due to an underlying medical condition such as high blood pressure; treating the underlying cause can help in easing your erection problems.
