When erectile dysfunction affects a male, their relationship and their life are affected greatly by this condition. If left untreated, erectile dysfunctions can even lead to the loss of a partner through death or suicide. Fortunately there are many treatment options available, but before we look at the different treatments, let’s first look at what is causing the dysfunction in the first place.
The most common cause of erectile dysfunction is vascular disease. When the blood flow to the penis becomes blocked, it can lead to the inability to get or maintain an erection. Typically the blockage is caused by a buildup of fat or cholesterol inside the arteries that supply blood to the penis. This can lead to atherosclerosis and/or hardening of the arteries, which can lead to atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, or coronary artery disease. Most cases of erectile dysfunction that are treated using medication only require treatment for the cardiovascular complications, which is not advised.
Another possible cause of this condition is psychological factors. Often times, a person with erectile dysfunction has problems with their confidence and their sexuality because they don’t understand why they aren’t able to achieve or maintain an erection when they think they should be able to. Many doctors recommend drug treatments for these patients, but this can pose serious health risks.
Treating erectile dysfunction cases with pharmaceuticals such as Viagra or Cialis can lead to several side effects such as headaches, nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, and sleep disturbances. On top of these side effects, Viagra and Cialis also contain other chemicals that can alter your sexual health even more. There are a number of herbal supplements on the market today that are used to treat these types of issues. Many of these herbal supplements are very effective and can provide quick relief from erectile dysfunction. In fact, many patients report that these herbal remedies are preferable to prescription drugs.
