Impotence is a pathological condition that can occur at any age. What are the main causes of erectile dysfunction? Experts in the field of medicine and sexology over a long period revealed several main phenomena that entail the emergence of this problematic. Consider further some of the main causes of impotence, as well as features characteristic of this problem. How to treat selective impotence? What folk remedies can be used for this? This will also be discussed further.
Speaking in very simple language, impotence is a state of the male body in which he is unable to perform his sexual functions due to the fact that the member cannot accept the state of erection. This concept also applies to cases where a member can not maintain his eregirovannom state throughout the sexual act.
In modern medicine, the concept of "impotence" is increasingly being replaced by the phrase "erectile dysfunction", since it is the one that most clearly describes the situation that occurs in the body of a man during the course of symptoms of the disease. In the common people impotence is called nothing other than sexual impotence.
It is advisable to deal with impotence in the very early stages of dysfunction symptoms, because if the disease is in an advanced stage, it will be quite difficult for a specialist to bring his patient back to normal. The main problem of the lack of timeliness of treatment is the sensitivity of the disease, as well as the fact that many men try by any means to convince themselves of the absence of any problems with erection or by any means try to hide them, engaging in exaggeration of information about their sexual health.
Types of impotence
In medical practice, it is customary to distinguish between three types of impotence: psychogenic, organic and mixed.
Organic impotence occurs when a violation of the process of sexual arousal occurs in the man’s body, as well as its realization.This means that the representative of the stronger sex is able to experience sexual attraction, but its realization in the form of an erection is not observed. In the case of psychogenic impotence, the cause of the problem is a violation in the area in which the stimulating impulse is formed. The erection process in this case does not occur, since it has been established that the very impulse is the primary stage in the formation of erectile ability.
As for the mixed type of impotence, it combines both psychogenic and organic mechanisms. It should be noted that the procedure for the treatment of this type of disease is the most complex and meaningful. Unfortunately, this type of problem in the modern world is most common, because the above two types of diseases tend to cause each other.
Depending on when the disease occurred, it can be divided into two types: primary erectile dysfunction and secondary. Primary is the one that is present in young guys who have never had an erection. Medical practice shows that the disease in the absence of treatment can occur throughout life.
Secondary impotence is called if a man has previously experienced sexual desire, accompanied by an erection, but later, due to any reason, such functionality of the genitals disappeared.
Before you understand the methods of treatment of impotence, you should understand what are the main causes of the development of this disease. The most common of these are stress, fatigue and overstrain. As a rule, such reasons may entail a temporary loss of the ability to maintain the normal erect state of the penis. Often this problem is observed in those people who do not observe the established culture of natural sex and regularly use its substitutes - in this case, sooner or later, the person stops being excited from the usual sexual objects and cannot contact them in the normal way.
Certain diseases can also be attributed to a number of causes of impotence. This is due to the fact that the erection process is a whole mechanism in which not only visual perception and the center of excitation in the central nervous system, but also some organ systems are involved.Thus, the cause of the problem in question may be disorders in the endocrine or cardiovascular system, hypertension, liver disease, as well as obesity (or, conversely, exhaustion) and diabetes.
In some cases, specialists in the field of medicine and sexology determine that the cause of the disease is damage to the nervous system or directly to the genital organs.
In the modern world, impotence is very often observed, which is caused by harmful habits (drug addiction, alcoholism, smoking addiction) affecting the human body. Infrequent but real cases are manifestations of erectile dysfunction caused by frequent use of certain types of drugs.
Erectile dysfunction is often observed in those individuals whose body lacks vitamin D. It should be noted that this component, like testosterone, is involved in the processes that result in calcium exchange. In that case, if vitamin D is not enough for such a function, testosterone is used for the normal implementation of the process, which, as a result, remains very little for performing sexual functions.That is why in order to maintain normal male health, men are recommended to use vitamin D in its pure form. Chewable tablets "Ultra-D", which contain the necessary daily amount of this substance, are recognized as the best options for drugs. You can take these pills without drinking water.
Main signs and symptoms
