Sexual impotence or erectile dysfunction is the persistent inability to get or maintain an erection that allows you to have a satisfying sexual relationship. It must differ from other problems of the sexual sphere such as lack of desire, alterations of ejaculation (premature ejaculation, delayed ejaculation, absence of ejaculation) or orgasm disorders. Impotence or erectile dysfunction is a very common disease that can affect the relationships of the sufferer with his partner, with the family, as well as with the working and social environment. There are a number of risk factors that may favor impotence or erectile dysfunction: diabetes and high blood pressure smoking and alcohol consumption, high cholesterol levels taking certain drugs and depression
That can cause:
- Psychological causes: the penis has no physical alteration, but psychological problems such as anxiety (often caused by fear of not getting an erection or letting the woman down), depression, problems with the partner and even stress can affect the sexual act. Too much concern about work, social or family problems means that the necessary attention is not devoted to the sexual act. Fatigue, lack of appetite, lack of exercise, insomnia, or failure to work also unbalance sexual reflexes.
- Vascular causes: they are very common. The penis cannot accumulate the blood needed for an erection to be given, usually because it does not come in sufficient amount.
- Neurological causes: in these cases there is an interruption in the transfer of messages from the brain to the penis because there is an injury to the nerves involved. This occurs with spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, or surgical interventions in the pelvis.
- Hormonal causes: they are rare. Usually due to a lack of male sex hormones.
People suffering from it
Impotence or erectile dysfunction occurs most often in men over 40 years of age. Between the ages of 40 and 70, it has been proven that 30 out of 100 men in Kenya suffer from some kind of impotence, which can be more or less severe. A number of factors also influence their appearance:
- Being a smoker.
- Being diabetic.
- Have high blood pressure or heart disease.
- Have cholesterol levels altered.
- Suffer depressions.
- Take certain medications to fight depression and high blood pressure.
It should be noted that not only men can suffer from sexual impotence, but women can also suffer from it.
Some women may feel lack of desire at certain times in their lives, for example during pregnancy and childbirth, breastfeeding and menopause, and during periods of crisis or illness. For others, this situation may become chronic. The symptoms are lack of interest in initiating or participating in sexual acts, lack of receptivity to sexual activity, and absence of sexual thoughts or fantasies.
Causes of loss of desire:
- Physical: surgical interventions, hormonal breakdown and certain diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and diabetes.
- Other factors: changes in contraceptive methods, tiredness, stress, mood swings, obesity, relationship with a partner, traumatic sexual episodes, and excessive use of alcohol and drugs. Lack of time can also lead to a loss of sexual desire. It may also be due to sexual routine or something in the partner that causes rejection.
The role of man:
Instead of falling into the discouragement, the person to be diagnosed with impotence or erectile dysfunction should take measures to contribute to successfully overcome the condition:
Prepare psychologically and be aware that from that moment on he will cease to be impotent.
Dialogue with your partner about emotional problems.
- Keep in good physical condition and normal weight.
- Make sure impotence is not a consequence of a disease: diabetes, multiple sclerosis, or atherosclerosis
- Do not consume alcohol or tobacco, sleeping pills, tranquilizers, painkillers, etc
- Try intercourse even if the penis is not erect (intercourse is the most powerful sexual stimulant).
- Test with some stimulating mechanical device.
- Always consult with specialists.
The role of women:
Women whose partners suffer from erectile dysfunction should also collaborate in the process of overcoming them. Among other things, it is advisable to act as follows::
- Massages and soft contacts on your partner’s genitals, which help the man get enough stimulation.
- To positively qualify the sexual behavior of the man if he achieves penetration, even if it is short, to increase his self-esteem.
- Passionate foreplay almost always provokes an erectile response in the male’s penis.
Mention aside also deserves impotence disorder or erectile dysfunction in the elderly, as there are many misunderstandings. As a result of the aging process, there is usually a longer refractory period (time needed for a new erection after an orgasm). Age also seems to affect the time needed to get excited, for erection and ejaculation. All this is considered completely normal.
It is recommended that if you have erectile dysfunction you ask for help, medical and/or psychological.
If you are one of those people who at a certain age take those products called VIAGRA, which can harm your health, I recommend a 100% natural product. A dietary supplement that uses a balanced mixture of natural herbs to improve the sexual potency of men and women, desire and duration.
Which only works with sexual stimulation, does not cause unwanted erection (there will be no embarrassing moments), free of chemicals, which a capsule lasts up to 3 days.
