If you have ED or think that you may be suffering from a similar condition to erectile dysfunction or impotency, you may be surprised to be affected, particularly if your health is otherwise good.
However, it is a fallacy that healthy men cannot suffer from ED. Erectile dysfunction can strike at any time, no matter your age, state of health or general body condition. Even if you go to the gym every week, eat a good diet and keep yourself in prime physical form, ED can still affect you.
What are the symptoms of ED?
ED can strike suddenly with symptoms appearing out of the blue, or you may notice a slight decline in your sexual ability over a period of time. When sexually aroused, your body will normally respond by providing you with an erection, long enough to last until you can complete full sexual intercourse. However, with ED, even though you feel turned on, the erection may not appear. In more severe cases, you may find yourself not even feeling sexually stimulated. This can play havoc with your relationship and your self-esteem. Many men feel at a total loss and have no idea where to turn to for help.
Where can I get my ED treated?
The best advice is don’t feel embarrassed or shy and go straight to your doctor. Tell him exactly how you are feeling and the symptoms you are experiencing. He will then carry out some tests if needed and take a full medical history from you. The doctor’s job is to find out what is causing your ED. It could be a physical illness, stress, emotional problems, tiredness or a combination of several things. Once he gets to the root of the problem, he can prescribe treatment to get your body operating fully again.
But what if I am completely healthy?
Very often, men with no other health problems are affected by erectile dysfunction. If the problem is not being exacerbated by stress or emotional difficulties, your G.P. may prescribe you with Viagra, Cialis or Levitra. These are drugs that will work on your body to enable you to achieve a full erection and to take part in normal sexual intercourse.
You may find that after you have used the tablets for a few occasions, gradually your body will return to normal and you may not need to use the drugs for too long.
Before you know it, your ED will be a thing of the past.
