Hello- As the body ages, it experiences a multitude of changes, some good, others, not so much. Aging slows down your reaction time. It stymies the immune system. And it even minimizes the production of essential sex hormones. Andropause, known as Male Menopause, slows the production of testosterone. Low testosterone levels cause males to feel moody, depressed, and experience weakened erections. To counteract the effects of aging, you can take supplements that help regain your sexual function. Ayurvedic aphrodisiac herbs and some simple lifestyle and dietary changes can help boost your testosterone level naturally and can cure your ED permanently.

Common Causes Of Erectile Dysfunction

Common Causes Of Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is a serious matter. It can hit any man, of any age, but of course, is much more prevalent among older men. Once you hit forty, you’re increasingly likely to suffer from ed. It’s important to understand, however, that not every case of sexual dysfunction is an ed problem.

Common causes of erectile dysfunction:

Bad lifestyle:

  • The sad truth is that in a significant number of cases, erectile dysfunction is a condition we bring upon ourselves. Even when these things aren’t the outright cause of ed, they’re almost certain to be contributing factors that make your condition worse.
  • This is a big, expansive category that covers a lot of ground, but in a nutshell, here’s what you need to know.
  • Eating lots of leafy greens, whole grains, oysters, watermelon, and blueberries all fruits will help you give your body all that it needs to improve the quality of your erections, while cutting out processed foods, cigarettes and alcohol will provide further benefits.
  • Add in a healthy dose of exercise at least three times per week, and you’re well on your way to better sexual health!

Your mind:

  • Many of the causes of erectile dysfunction are actually psychological. Understand that this is not the same as saying that it’s all in your head, because it’s not.
  • Psychological issues can easily lead to a variety of very real physical ailments. If that surprises you, it shouldn’t.
  • Stress can lead to heart disease, so also other psychological issues can lead to ed. It’s a pretty common, fairly well understood phenomenon.
  • Stress is, in fact, one of the leading causes of ed, which makes it a particularly nasty condition. It also can lead to heart troubles, so it hits you twice.
  • Long before stress kills you though, it will impact your sex life in a major, and entirely negative way.
  • Our modern society is filled to the point of overflowing with stress triggers. We work too many hours. We don’t take enough vacations, and even when we do, we tend to bring our work with us, thanks to the advent of the smart phone, which is both a blessing and a curse.
  • Yes, it lets us keep in touch with friends and families no matter where we are in the world, but it also means that we have the tendency to never unplug. We need that. We need time to decompress and relax. Sure, you can run at top speed for a while, but if you do it too long, you’ll burn yourself out.
  • If you keep going much beyond that, your problems will only worsen with time. Why would you want to do that to yourself? it simply makes no sense.

Depression:

  • Depression is another common cause of ed, and let’s face it. When you’re depressed, sex is about the last thing you’re thinking of.
  • Stress is a particularly nasty cause of ed, because most of the antidepressant medicines available only make ed worse.
  • Depression is insidious on another front as well, because it’s easy to get caught in a negative, self-reinforcing feedback loop trap.
  • What we mean by that is that when you’re depressed, your self-esteem is low. If you try to have sex, your low self-esteem may lead to performance issues. Then, when you fail to perform, sexually, it lowers your self-esteem further, which makes future sexual performance issues even more likely.
  • Once you’re caught in that trap, it can be notoriously difficult to get out of it.
  • One thing you’ll note that isn’t on the list is" performance anxiety" that’s because while performance anxiety can lead to a lack of sexual performance in certain specific situations, these are generally isolated, one-off events.
  • The risk, however, is that a failure to perform sexually can sometimes lead to depression, which can cause ed.

Thus you have to take steps to reduce stress by yourself. Here are some of the ways by which you can save yourself from the parasite of stress.

  3. For most people work seems to engulf their entire life. Do not allow this to happen at any cost. Maintain a healthy balance between your office and your personal commitments. Make time for the people you love.

  4. Take short breaks in between your work to rejuvenate your energy level.

  5. Try out methods of relaxation, for instance a long walk, a hot bath, yoga or meditation.

  6. Assess your work at the end of the day as well as set a schedule plan for the tasks to be completed on the following day.

  7. Engage in hobbies like drawing, painting, dancing and gardening or music to disconnect from the pressures of the corporate world.

  8. Pay a visit to a psychologist or a stress management workshop to de-stress yourself. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

How to Save Yourself From Stroke?

Is There Any Relation Between Stress And Erectile Dysfunction?

BHMS
Sexologist, Lucknow
Is There Any Relation Between Stress And Erectile Dysfunction?

Yes. Stress definitely can cause erectile dysfunction (ed). It may become an issue with a new relationship or when challenges at work become overwhelming. These issues can interfere with “erotic focus” or “awareness of sensory experience.” basically, it can take someone out of “the moment” making maintaining an erection a challenge.

In fact, while stress is a common cause of erectile dysfunction in those under the age of 40, it can be responsible for ed at any age.

Also, while younger men are more likely to have a psychological reason for their ed, physical reasons cannot be excluded. Nevertheless, in younger men the causes are often related to stress, depression, extreme anxiety, or some other disruption in their emotional state. Young men may have physical reasons that cause ed, including issues like abnormal hormone production, trauma that affects the blood vessels of the penis, peyronie’s disease that causes a bend in the penis, neurological conditions that affect the transmission of signals that result in erections, drug or alcohol use, or the use of medications as simple as antihistamines. 

Also, in men under the age of 40, ed can be an early sign that vascular disease is beginning to affect them. An erection is an indicator of a man’s general health. It is always worth exploring the possible physical issues that could be at work. 

Nevertheless, in the younger population stress and depression are not uncommon causes of ed.

Psychological causes of ed

  • Depression: depression is recognized as having effects far beyond mood. It can compromise someone’s immune system or even increase the likelihood of having a heart attack. Erectile dysfunction can affect someone with depression even when he is in a stable and loving relationship. Unfortunately, the drugs used to treat depression can cause erectile dysfunction, as well. The good news is that erectile dysfunction medications work whether the difficulty is from the depression itself or from the medications.
  • Anxiety: people think of performance anxiety (worry about “performing” sexually) but anxiety over any issue that is distracting can lead to erectile dysfunction.
  • Stress: stress can be job-related, money-related, or the result of marital problems, among other factors.
  • Loss of desire: this is called loss of libido by doctors. It means that a person no longer desires sexual intimacy as they once had. Hormone changes as in low testosterone can cause erectile dysfunction, but so can so can neurological or psychological conditions, medications, or relationship issues. The reason should be investigated to resolve the issue. Erectile dysfunction (ed) drugs will not work for many of these patients. A person must feel a desire for sex to kick off the process that allows the medications to function properly.
  • Sense of inadequacy: feeling bad about oneself (low self esteem) can stem from a man being unable to fulfill the role he believes gives him value as a man. It can be a failure to provide as he hoped for his family, an inability to gain acceptance in a peer group, or being unable to engage in sexual intimacy with a spouse or partner.
  • Guilt: guilt over having an affair, losing the family’s money, having a hidden compulsion like gambling or drug use, or being unable to satisfy a partner, as examples, can all interfere with being able to get aroused or engage in sex.
