What Causes My Impotence
If you are one of the many men suffering (often in silence) from impotence, it is important to determine exactly what is causing the problem, once this has been established, a treatment method can be determined.
A wide range of causes have been attributed to causing Impotence, these can range from physical problems, psychological causes and lifestyle.
Physical Causes Of Impotence
The medical profession used to dismiss physical causes, stating that impotence was purely psychological, but the opinion has changed with research and it is widely acknowledged that around 70% of all cases of Impotence are caused by physical reasons. Some of the more common causes include:
Reduced testosterone levels – in particular as we age the levels of this hormone can deplete, this can lead to a reduced capability to get a proper erection.
Medications – drugs commonly prescribed for conditions such as high blood pressure, depression and angina can cause erection problems, as can some antihistamines, anti depressants and some appetite suppressants.
Injury – injuries to the general pelvic area including nerve damage can restrict ability to become aroused
Reduced Blood Flow – the most common cause (and quite often the one most easily treated) of impotence, smoking and drinking could cause narrowing or hardening of the arteries.
Illness – any disease that affects the heart, kidneys or liver could cause Erection problems, raised cholesterol, diabetes, stress and Peyronies disease can cause impotence.
Psychological Causes Of Impotence
The single main psychological cause of impotence is stress, worries at work, pressure at home from bills, partner and the kids can all cause the sufferer to fail to achieve satisfactory erections, Anger, guilt and fear are all classic impotence problems.
“Drink provides The Desire, But Takes Away The Performance” – William Shakespeare
Smoking, Drugs and alcohol have all been proved to have a detrimental effect on libido and impotence, being overweight and physically inactive will also bring on the problem.
So How Can We Cure Impotence
Once we have determined the possible root cause of the problem, then we can address it. Some physical causes may need medical help.
Try and relieve the stress in your life, also do not be afraid to discuss the problem with your partner, hiding it from them can only cause problems in the long run, they are either going to get frustrated or if you try and avoid sexual contact, they may well think that you are not attracted to them. Try and relax and take your time when attempting sex.
If you smoke or drink heavily, then cut down, if you are overweight, try and lose some weight.
