Erectile Dysfunction [ED], this term scares most people off their bones. To be honest it is not a condition anyone would wish to be into. We know how men are egoistic and this is among the things that can kill their egos. To those who do not know what ED is I would just give a brief description to make everyone be at par.
Some people call it impotence. Is that a little familiar? Well, the term describes the inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Sometimes the other problems that would normally interfere with intercourse or reproduction like lack of sexual urge or even ejaculation and orgasm problems are entailed here.
That having been said, we now have some knowledge of what is involved. This should not make us fear or rather seclude those whom we loved before. You need to keep in mind that this problem is not self inflicted. No one would wish to have ED. The other thing is that those who have ED can improve if they are encouraged. You need to keep encouraging those who are in this problem.
All is not lost for those with ED. There are efforts being made to try and ensure that things are working for them. For instance, there are treatments like the vacuum devices and some injectables that are now being used to try and curb the problem. There has also been Viagra that is also used since 1998. These things work! You need not die of psychological trauma yet there’s help somewhere. If you are suffering from ED, you need to get one of these cures to help you.
As already mentioned, no one wishes to have ED. Some aged men have ED because of an injury, disease or side effects of drugs. These people also never knew that they would end up with ED. You must not blame them. The secret with ED is that the people affected need a lot of encouragement and empathy. If it is your spouse or even a friend, genuine empathy will really help them in the healing process. Most ED problems are psychological. Psychology is more of what someone else perceives me to be. If I know that you don’t take me to be any less, I will be fine. That is what these people need from us.
I want to assure you that I know of people who have been able to successfully battle ED. Even the improved ED treatments and counseling has helped so many people regain their normal sexual activity. You may also need to see urologist just to be sure that your problem is not originating from the urinary tract. However, if it does, there is some help these specialists can offer you. What you need to ensure is that the person who has ED gets enough support and explores all the options there are in regaining sexual activity.
In summary, those who suspect they may be suffering ED must ensure that they undergo the following diagnostic checks:
* Patient History
* Physical Examination
* Laboratory Tests
* Psychosocial Examination
If any of the above proves positive, then any of these three options should be sought.
* Drug treatment
* Vacuum devices
This means that ED should not be the end of the road. Together we can battle it and live normally again.
