Problems related to sexual health are probably far more common than you think. In fact, there are an infinite number of causes, but the most important thing is that the vast majority of them always have a solution.
Erectile dysfunction (ED), incorrectly called “impotence”, is the repeated inability to achieve or maintain an erection that is firm enough for satisfactory sexual relations. But this term also includes less obvious symptoms such as a lack of sexual desire (libido) and problems with ejaculation or orgasm. If you suffer from any of these disorders you should know that although 80-90% of these dysfunctions are caused by psychological problems, it has been proved that a physiological base does exist.
The first thing you need to find out is what is causing your sexual dysfunction as the treatment that will be most useful for you depends on the reason for the disorder. Age, for example, is an important factor that can affect your sexual confidence but, at the same time, bear in mind that any problem can be exacerbated by poor diet, smoking and a sedentary lifestyle. You have to remember that one of the key points of the problem is blood flow because if your body does not get the amount of blood needed, you can’t achieve a satisfactory erection. Therefore, if you want to improve your sexual response it is important to stimulate the blood flow to the genital area.
Some solutions within reach to improve your sexual health include making changes to your lifestyle habits, such as taking up exercise, stopping smoking, and taking better care of your diet; finding out if you are taking any medication that causes this problem; going for psychotherapy or behavioural therapy; trying hormonal treatments or medication that enhance the natural erection mechanisms. There are also some dietary supplements that can help to intervene in the natural erection process and thereby achieve a much more satisfying sex life.
