What Is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction, also known as E.D. or impotence, is the inability to attain or maintain an erection of the penis adequate for the sexual satisfaction of both partners. It can be devastating to the self-esteem of a man and of his partner. As many as 20 million American men are afflicted on a continuing basis, and transient episodes affect nearly all adult males. But nearly all men who seek treatment find some measure of relief.

What Causes It?

As recently as two decades ago, physicians tended to blame erectile dysfunction on psychological problems or, with older men, on the normal aging process. Today, the pendulum of medical opinion has swung away from both notions. While arousal takes longer as a man ages, chronic erectile dysfunction warrants medical attention. Moreover, the difficulty is often not psychological in origin. Today, urologists believe that physical factors underlie perhaps 90% of cases of persistent erectile dysfunction in men over age 50.

Because erection is primarily a vascular event, it is not surprising that the most common causes in this age group are conditions that block blood flow to the penis, such as atherosclerosis or diabetes. Another vascular cause may be a faulty vein, which lets blood drain too quickly from the penis. Other physical disorders, as well as hormonal imbalances and certain operations, may also result in erectile dysfunction.

The vascular processes that produce an erection are controlled by the nervous system, and certain prescription medications may have the side effect of interfering with necessary nerve signals. Among the possible culprits are a variety of stimulants, sedatives, diuretics, antihistamines, and agents to treat high blood pressure, cancer, or depression. In addition, alcohol, tobacco, and illegal drugs, such as marijuana, may contribute to the dysfunction.

With younger men, psychological problems are the likeliest reason for erectile dysfunction. Tension and anxiety may arise from poor communication with the sexual partner or a difference in sexual preferences. The sexual difficulties may also be linked to depression, fatigue, stress, feelings of inadequacy, personal sexual fears, rejection by parents or peers or sexual abuse in childhood.

unless you're pushing too hard or your girlfriend likes her finger in yo butty..seriously i don't think so.don't strain yourself and i think you'll be fine :-)
well, think about that. if you are in so much pain, and there is a bunch of blood filled skin hanging out of your ***, do you think that you are going to feel in the mood? I bet there are plenty of men that experience this, same as women
yes, it can make you very incomfortable and make going to the bathroom painful, but I do NOT think it would effect your erection at all
hemorrhoids should not cause erectile difficulty.
only if your only turn on was sitting on your partners face,
or else if you were homosexual!
If you're having erection problems, Its not from hemorrhoids. True
it is difficult getting and maintaining an erection while your hemorrhoids are actively burning and throbbing. When they are
not active, You should be good to go. There may be something
else going on there. Consult your doctor.
I didn't even know there was a men's health forum. Who would have thunk it! Kudos to you "guys". *thumbs up*
Yes.It is an abnormality and health risk.Please see doctor urgently.Detailed investigation is a must.
