What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is when a man has difficulty getting or keep an erection suitable for sexual relations or any other sexual activity.

ED becomes more common as you get older. Only about 5% of men age 40 have it. But the number rises to 15% of men age 70. This doesn’t mean growing older is the end of your sex life. Doctors can treat ED no matter your age.

Erectile dysfunction causes

-Psychological causes: A number of things can interfere with sexual feelings and cause erectile dysfunction. These include depression, anxiety, or other mental health conditions – stress- relationship problems due to stress, poor communication, or other concerns.

Treatment

To treat erection problems, the patient should first visit the doctor to find out the cause; if the cause is an underlying disease or a hormonal disorder; it must first be treated.

The doctor frequently uses Viagra, Cialis to treat erectile dysfunction (those medications help blood flow into the penis by inhibiting an enzyme phosphodiesterase E5, often called PDE5). PDE5 breaks down one of the molecules that relaxes the smooth muscles of the penis and the blood flow necessary for an erection.

If the cause is psychological, the patient should also consult a sexologist to treat the erectile dysfunction.

The best way to prevent erectile dysfunction is to make healthy lifestyle choices and to manage any existing health conditions:

– Treat your chronic health conditions.

– Lose weight if you’re overweight.

– Stop smoking.

– Eat healthily.

– Try to reduce stress and anxiety.

– Decrease alcohol and tobacco abuse.

 

What is Premature Ejaculation?

This is when a man ejaculates sooner than he wants to during sexual intercourse, and it is annoying for the two partners.

There is no set time when a man should ejaculate during intercourse, but when ejaculation is premature and the erection ends quickly, you and your partner may feel there’s not enough time to enjoy it.

 

Premature ejaculation causes

-Psychological causes: traumatic sexual experience from childhood, sexual abuse, depression, anxiety, worrying about premature ejaculation, relationship problems…

-Erectile dysfunction can cause premature ejaculation:  Men who are anxious about obtaining or maintaining an erection during sexual intercourse might form a pattern of rushing to ejaculate, which can be difficult to change.

-Biological causes: abnormal hormone levels, abnormal levels of neurotransmitters, infection of the prostate or urethra

 

Premature ejaculation treatment

Psychosexual counseling, behavioral therapy ( a treatment that aims to improve self-confidence and relieve anxiety and depression by continuously training men to master certain sexual skills to delay ejaculation time; including psychotherapy and physical techniques.), anesthetic creams, and gels, and medications.

You can try some measures to treat premature ejaculation: masturbate an hour or 2 before having sex, use a thick condom, take breaks during sex and think about something boring…

You might be at increased risk of premature ejaculation if you occasionally or consistently have trouble getting or maintaining an erection; fear of losing your erection might cause you to consciously or unconsciously hurry through sexual encounters.

Premature ejaculation can occasionally make fertilization difficult for couples who are trying to have a baby if ejaculation doesn’t occur intravaginally.
