Erectile dysfunction, also known as ED or impotence is a disorder in which a man is not able to attain or maintain penis erection during sexual intercourse thus making the process difficult and most of the times completely impossible. Erection is the basic prerequisite for a full and satisfactory sexual experience. Some men are able to complete the intercourse but it’s for a very modest duration. Continuous supply of blood into penis keeps it hard and erect, so it’s due to lack of blood supply to penis that a man suffering from erectile dysfunction is not able to keep his penis erect. In most of the cases, psychological reasons like stress, performance anxiety, guilt for not being able to satisfy the partner, depression, low self esteem and indifference among partners are major factors for causing erectile dysfunction. This disease has multiple personal and psychological repercussions beside the physical ones.
Physical causes which can lead to the disease are-
- High blood pressure
- Excessive drinking
- Vascular disease(common cause among elderly and middle aged man)
- Nerve damage either due to pelvic surgery or some injury.
- Draining of penis by abnormal veins
- Penile deformation
- Neurogenic disorders like Multiple sclerosis, Transverse Myelitis etc.
Besides a continuous failure to maintain or obtain desired penis erection, this disorder can be accompanied with several other symptoms as well –
- Spermatorrhoea and premature ejaculation are found under penile dysfunction.
- This disease in most of the cases is coupled with depression.
- Erection of penis when the person is asleep a condition called Priapism.
