Erectile Dysfunction: Psychological Complexities and Physical Difficulties as Causes
Early last year, a co-worker of mine finally decided to have that trip to a friend he had long planned. Quite sheepishly, he asked me if I could accompany him, to which I readily agreed. You see, he confided to me that he can't get an erection anymore whenever he and his wife want to have sex. That, of course, is a very abashing situation to any man; the condition is likewise a potential wrecker of any marriage.
Embarrassing as his condition was, my co-worker had no choice then but to see his friend and consult him about his worsening problem. He explained to me that this friend of his used to have the same problem - erectile dysfunction - which has long been cured by some natural remedies. He wanted to get as much information as he could about this condition from his friend, and, of course, to find out exactly how his friend's particular condition was cured.
It was as if I was suffering from erectile dysfunction myself as I carefully listened and even took down notes while my co-worker's friend was sharing with us his equally pitiful experience. He began by saying that an expert he consulted confirmed that indeed he was suffering from a case of erectile dysfunction (the general term used to describe this condition is impotence), which is a very common condition in men. As a matter of fact, most men have probably gone through this problem at one time or another.
Though it seems to be a relatively simple act, having sex can actually be very complex psychologically. Various sorts of stress and attitudes can interfere with one's ability to have an erection or to keep it up long enough to have gratifying relations with his partner. These may include having a negative state of mind toward one's job and finances, his own self, his partner, or sex itself. Factors such as these constitute a cluster of psychological complexities that may be the cause of one's having erectile dysfunction.
Physical difficulties can likewise cause erectile dysfunction. For example, certain conditions involving the nervous system can affect sexual capabilities. This is so since besides signaling what the body is feeling, the nerves also tell the body how to respond. A diminishing of either of these functions may result to some problems. Problems in the circulatory system can similarly cause erectile dysfunction. This is because in the process of trying to have an erection, the circulatory system pumps more blood into the penis than it allows to escape. Another system that may be involved is the endocrine system, the system that produces hormones. Hormones are known as chemical messengers; sexual behavior or craving can be affected directly by many of the messages that are carried by these hormones.
As to my co-worker's question on what can affect these systems and cause erectile dysfunction, his friend provided some specific examples: Smoking, alcoholism, diabetes, or a spinal cord injury can affect the nervous system; hypertension and certain lung diseases can affect the circulatory system; and abnormal changes in the glands that produce hormones can affect the endocrine system. All of these conditions can lead to erectile dysfunction.
My co-worker got his friend's reassurance that, whatever the cause, the condition can be helped, as was proven in the latter's case. In fact, hundreds of men have already benefited from the cure used by my co-worker's friend, enabling them to gain their desired lasting power. Today, my co-worker flaunts the fact that he and his wife have never been as happy as they are now.
