It is often that there is a mental or psychological aspect to erectile dysfunction. But the contributing cause can be physical as well with lifestyle changes bringing about changes to the persons stricken state. That to a large extent the main cause of the dysfunction is physical and it is confounded by the mental state of the person to a large extent. The two are interconnected to a large extent and often the situation is made more severe or serious by the lack of awareness than anything else.
The main physical aspects to erectile dysfunction
Vascular diseases: This is nothing but conditions that occur due to the heart and its malfunction. The very physical nature of having an erection does make the condition of the heart and its proper functioning important as well as crucial to getting a complete and proper erection at all times. Thus in forming a treatment program for the diseased heart, a contingency plan is made for the betterment of the male organ as well.
Diabetes: It is usual for most people that do have diabetes to have damaged nerves and nerve system. This leads to improper sensory feeling and in an area that particularly stresses the use of the different senses, the lack of sufficient prompting can lead to a poor performance in men particularly in achieving an erection.
Neurological conditions: When the nerve endings are damaged or not performing in proper order, it is natural that such people experience a lack of stimulation. This could be still compounded by the additional complications that arise due to other conditions as diabetes and even high blood pressure. Thus when a person first has trouble getting the member erect a proper mapping is done to the nervous system to ascertain its functioning.
Trauma: By trauma it is referred to the physical damage to the body that is sustained due to external injury and shock. There is a prime cause of trauma as being physical but it need not be so always. The very delicate functioning and positioning of the various organs in the body and their interconnection makes it particularly vulnerable so.
Medications: It is common for most medications to have some sort of side effect and this can adversely affect a man’s ability to have an erection. Usually this effect is set right once the particular medication is discontinued and should not be a more permanent feature to a formulation. But the increasingly powerful drugs in use and the nature of the more potent ones to have an effect that is simply not localized causes particular concern on this front.
The secret to better relations
Often a better marital relation is established outside the bedroom than within. So it pays to have a good understanding of each other than to try and find fault if something goes wrong between a couple. It is easy to look for scapegoats and the most convenient solution imposed on people that have issues between them.
