What Is Erectile Dysfunction?

Posted By John Michell | June 12, 2022 | Health

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get or keep an erection firm enough to have sexual intercourse. It’s sometimes referred to as impotence, although this term is now used less often.

Occasional ED isn’t uncommon. Many people experience it during times of stress. Frequent ED, however, can be a sign of health problems that need treatment. It can also be a sign of emotional or relationship difficulties that you may want to address with a professional.

In the past, erectile dysfunction was commonly believed to be caused by psychological problems. It is now known that, for most men, erectile dysfunction is caused by physical problems, usually related to the blood supply of the penis. Many advances have occurred in both diagnosis and treatment of erectile dysfunction.

Medical treatments:

Sildenafil. A prescription medication is taken orally for the treatment of ED. This drug works best when taken on an empty stomach and many men can get an erection 30 to 60 minutes after taking the medication. Sexual stimulation is required for sildenafil citrate to have the best efficacy. Cenforce 200mg is very effective treatment of ed.

Vardenafil

This drug has a similar chemical structure to sildenafil citrate and works in a similar manner.

Tadalafil

Studies have indicated that tadalafil citrate stays in the body longer than other medications in its class. Most men who take this medication find that an erection occurs within 4 to 5 hours after taking the pill (slow absorption) and the effects of the medication may last up to 24 to 36 hours.

Avanafil

The FDA recommends that men follow general precautions before taking a medication for ED. Men who are taking medications that contain nitrates, such as nitroglycerin, should NOT use these medications. Taking nitrates with one of these medications can lower blood pressure too much. In addition, men who take tadalafil or vardenafil should use alpha-blockers with care and only as instructed by their physician, as they could result in hypotension (abnormally low blood pressure). Experts recommend that men have a complete medical history and physical examination to determine the cause of ED. Men should tell their doctor about all the medications they are taking, including over-the-counter medications.
