Five surprising reasons why you’re unable to have, sustain erection



Nothing probably depresses a man like his inability to get it up when he desires!

Erectile dysfunction, which is defined as a man’s inability to achieve an erection at least 50 per cent of the time, is something that needs urgent visit to the hospital!

Men need to know the reasons for erectile dysfunction and how to prevent it…



Excessively demanding job. Professionals such as health care workers, firefighters, police officers, bankers who have to meet certain financial targets, etc., are said to be prone to depression because they work in environments that are prone to depression and anxiety. Consequently, they may be taking antidepressants, while others may adopt a coping strategy that include smoking and drinking. All of these coping mechanisms can trigger off erectile dysfunction, says, a professor in the Centre for Human Sexuality Studies at Widener University in Chester, Dr. Justin Sitron.

Excessive pornography. Excessively watching porn can lead to psychological problems, says erectile dysfunction specialist, Dr. Muhammad A. Mirza. “Porn is often skewed from reality, and there’s a research suggesting that the human brain organically changes when you watch too much of it,” he says. “It becomes almost like an addiction and could make it so you can’t get aroused without that kind of stimulation.”

Teeth problems. And you’d better believe this! Israeli researchers found that more than 15 percent of men with erectile dysfunction also suffer from periodontitis — a severe form of gum disease. Also, a study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine suggests that oral inflammation can lead to a decrease in eNOS, an enzyme that produces the nitric acid that works to regulate blood flow. Without proper flow, a man will struggle to get aroused.

Too much salt, resulting in hypertension and cholesterol — symptomatic of heart disease —restrict blood flow and harden the arteries, allowing plaque to build up. These two conditions can cause a stroke, which can then damage the nerves running through the body, including the ones to the penis.

Improve your diet. This is an easy way to reduce risk of erectile dysfunction. Research shows that the Mediterranean diet specifically is the healthiest for men with erection problems. Focus on natural foods with healthy fats, such as nuts and olive oil, which help to clear blood vessels of dangerous plaque and boosts production of nitric oxide, a compound that facilitates erections by dilating blood vessels in the penis.


The bottom line: Avoid self-medication such as taking libido-boosting drugs like Viagra. And don’t be ashamed of talking to your doctor!
