Erectile dysfunction, also known as ED, can affect a couple’s intimacy and quality of life. According to the Urology Care Foundation, it’s estimated that in the United States, about 30 million men are affected by ED. If you are having trouble getting or maintaining an erection, you may find yourself wondering why this is and what types of ED treatment may be available to you. Here’s some information you should know.

Physical Causes of ED

ED can be caused by either physical issues or mental issues. Some of the physical causes of erectile dysfunction are related to being overweight or being unhealthy. Having heart disease, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure can all lead to you having ED. Additionally, smoking can also cause these symptoms. Get regular exercise, eat a healthy diet, and get your cholesterol, blood pressure, or diabetes in a healthy range to help treat the symptoms you’re experiencing.

Mental Causes of ED

Mental issues can also cause ED. If you are dealing with anxiety, stress, relationship issues, depression, or issues surrounding your sexual feelings, you may develop erectile dysfunction. If you’re suffering from ED due to mental causes, you will want to work with a therapist or a psychiatrist to overcome the mental causes of your ED. If you’re having relationship issues that are causing the symptoms, work on addressing your relationship issues or building a closer bond with your partner.

Treatments For ED

When it comes to ED treatment, there are many options available. Some of the options include oral pills, such as Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, and Stendra. Testosterone therapy may be another option for those who have low testosterone. Lastly, we offer Botox and Dysport. Botox and Dysport are well-known for their ability to relax muscles and have shown promise in treating ED. When injected into specific muscles around the pelvic area, these treatments can help relax blood vessels and improve blood flow. Enhanced blood circulation is a key factor in achieving and maintaining an erection.
