Impotence (or erectile dysfunction) is the lack of a man’s full or partial ability to perform sexual intercourse. The cause of this condition can be both age-related factors and physiological, neuropsychiatric diseases.
It is very important to identify the disease at an early stage of its development in order to start preventive treatment in time. More than 30% of the male population aged 18 to 59 years have problems with the sexual function of the body. Achievements of modern urology make it possible to recognize erectile dysfunction in the embryonic stage of its development, which means that it is possible to prevent the spread of this disease and completely restore sexual potency.
What are the symptoms of erectile dysfunction?
The main symptoms of impotence:
- Complete or partial lack of erection. An erection can be spontaneous and adequate. Spontaneous (morning or night erection) usually occurs involuntarily. If a man has spontaneous erections but has no adequate erections, this indicates either a psychological disorder or physical overwork. The absence of a spontaneous and adequate erection at the same time is evidence that there are more serious organic diseases;
- Weakened erection. If the frequency of an erection decreases or the penis does not have enough hardness to perform sexual intercourse, this is a sign that the blood does not receive enough into the genitals. This may be caused by vascular diseases, hormonal disorders and other diseases of organic nature. Less commonly, this is a consequence of psychological disorders;
- Premature ejaculation. When the release of seminal fluid occurs at the earliest stage of sexual intercourse or even before it, there is an inability to maintain an erection and, as a result, the impossibility of full sexual intercourse. The reason for this state of affairs is organic diseases of the vascular system. With psychogenic impotence, this disorder is observed quite rarely.
Currently, there are many modern medical clinics in which you can receive quality medical care. And if you find one or more signs of erectile dysfunction, you should immediately contact one of the medical institutions.
The disease is caused by serious somatic disorders in only one out of ten cases. In most cases, the disease develops against the background of a psychological disorder or physical overwork. It is easy enough to get rid of these problems, sometimes even without the use of medications. Nevertheless, if you notice something is wrong, you should immediately seek help from a doctor.
