The Psychological Effects of Erectile Dysfunction
Many men associate their sexuality with their identity. So if a man can’t perform in the bedroom, it can impact their feelings of self-worth. Erectile Dysfunction Effects
The ability to get an erection is connected a man’s masculinity. When erectile dysfunction (ED) happens, a man will lose confidence in himself and in his ability to please his partner. If not addressed, men with ED can develop depression and/or anxiety. Along with further impacting the man’s sexual relationship, these conditions will also social activities and job performance as well.
Effective ED treatment can boost self-esteem. A 2012 study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that men with ED experienced increased self-esteem within three months of starting medication. Researchers surveyed about 500 men, asking them to complete a Self-Esteem and Relationship (SEARS) questionnaire twice. Survey participants completed the questionnaire once before they started ED medication and again three months later. Men with ED increased their scores by nearly 30 points on the two surveys.
This study shows the importance of finding effective ED treatment. While little blue pills do work, they require a certain amount of preplanning. Spontaneity suffers.

If you’re like most people, you probably think age is the primary cause of erectile dysfunction. While older men do sometimes experience ED or impotence, it’s not their age that prevents their body from responding. In reality, a lack of adequate blood flow is the root cause of most cases of ED.
What is ED?
Erectile dysfunction occurs when a man cannot maintain an erection long enough and firm enough to engage in sexual intercourse. Many men will experience ED from time to time, but if the problem occurs over an extended time frame, medical intervention may be necessary.
What causes ED?
While ED can result for a variety of reasons, including heavy drinking, obesity, stress, diabetes, poor dental health and conditions like Peyronie’s disease, poor circulation is the problem in 80 percent of cases. The cause is physiological. The penis includes two corpora cavernosa. If blood flow to these chambers is restricted for whatever reason, the man could have difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection.
Medications like Viagra or Cyalis are the most common solution for ED. These meds are quite effective at helping men overcome ED, but they only offer a temporary solution. Men must anticipate a sexual encounter so that they can take a pill in time to be ready. The requirement to take medication eliminates any spontaneity. Plus, unwanted side effects often accompany oral medications. Headache, flushing, back pain and dizziness are common. And some men can’t take ED medications due to high blood pressure, heart disease or diabetes.
