Impotence a.k.a. Erectile Dysfunction

man with impotence
Impotence a.k.a. Erectile Dysfunction means that you are incapable to achieve and sustain an erection. Unlike many people think, this condition is not normal for any age. Even if you are 90, having an erectile dysfunction is not just the normal course of life. Many people also mistake impotence with the lack of sexual desire, problems with orgasm and ejaculation. Once again it is nothing less and nothing more than a incapability to sustain and achieve an erection!

Is erectile dysfunction common?

A recent study shows that 18,4% of the men over 20 suffer from impotence, 70% of the men over 70 and 5% of the guys between 20 to 40.
Being a common problem doesn't make it one that you should ignore, it can surely make a mess of your personal life and confidence.

What causes impotence?

If you are to achieve an erection three things must happen
  1. The nerves to the penis must be functioning correctly
  2. The blood circulation to the penis must be adequate
  3. The brain must provide a stimulus

If there is something interfering with any or all of these 3 conditions, a full erection will not be reached.
Diseases such as atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), psychological factors such as stress, depression and performance anxiety, nerve diseases and penis injury are the common causes for impotence.

Chronic illness, certain medications and a condition called Peyronie's disease (scar tissue in the penis) can also cause erectile dysfunction. And of course lifestyle can also be a reason for this condition. Things like smoking, alcohol drinking and not enough exercising could prove fatal for your erection.

Can erectile dysfunction be prevented?

Yes a healthy lifestyle can prevent impotence! Studies show that simple changes like eating healthy and exercising regularly may ease the problem for most guys. Working out 2-3 times per week isn't that bad now is it?

How can impotence be treated?

You can read all about the treatment of erectile dysfunction in my post - top impotence aids.

Just to summarize it there are 2 most commonly used impotence aids - chemical drugs and herbal supplements.

The most popular chemical drugs are viagra, cialis and levitra. They are very effective but also have a lot of negative side effects and are even life threatening.

On the other hand you have the herbal supplements, which take some more time but do not have any negative side effects, in fact they actually have some positive side effects on your general health as well since the herbs used in them are good for more than one reason. Such supplement is VigRX plus. It contains Damiana, Puncture Vine, Horny goat weed, Ginkgo leaf, Asian red ginseng, Saw palmetto berry and more.

Some of the benefits VigRx offers are increased erection size in both width and length, increased stamina and sex drive through increased cardiovascular power and improved Circulation, and a few more!
