Do you have problems having or maintaining an erection? If so, you may have erectile dysfunction. It turns out, you’re not alone. ED is a lot more common than you’d probably guess. As many as 52% of men experience erectile dysfunction -many of which go untreated, according to the Cleveland Clinic.
And, you don’t have to be an elderly person to experience it either. One in four guys under the age of 40 reports moderate to severe erectile dysfunction. Previously, experts believed ED was psychological-based. However, recent research has shown that erectile dysfunction is more often than not caused by cardiovascular malfunction.
Erectile dysfunction can cause various problems that decrease sexual performance. You may have ED if you regularly have a low-libido, trouble getting an erection, problems maintaining an erection during sexual activities, or have a reduced interest in sex.
Take the following survey to find out if you are experiencing symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction.
You should talk to your doctor if you’ve experienced any of the above issues for 2 or more months on-going. Some of these problems can be a result of a larger issue.
Your healthcare provider will have you fill out a questionnaire to help evaluate the extent of your ED. Once premature ejaculation (another common sexual dysfunction) is ruled out, he’ll talk to you about your treatment options.
The most common options are oral treatments such as Sildenafil, Vardenafil, or Tadalafil. Your doctor will explain the benefits of each so that you can make an informed decision about the best route for treating your erectile dysfunction.
ED is easily treated and doesn’t have to be an end-all to your sex life. With proper diagnosis and treatment, you’ll be back to having and maintaining erections in no time!
