Experiencing Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction not only inhibits your biological health but also causes mental and emotional distress as well. The inability to sustain an erection long enough to have sexual intercourse can cause problems within a relationship and lead to anxiety and depression. Being that erections begin in the brain, ED can reciprocally result from stress and anxiety already experience by the person. Psychological ED is likely to appear when you are capable of sustaining an erection during masturbation but NOT during intercourse with your partner. A more serious form of erectile dysfunction is when you are unable to sustain an erection while masturbating AND during sexual intercourse with your partner. In this case, medical attention by an El Paso urology clinic should be sought immediately. Priapism is another form of erectile dysfunction, which occurs when the penis remains upward in an erection lasting up to 4 hours without any prior sexual stimulation. This can occur at any age from newborn to old age. Priapism should be treated immediately to prevent permanent ED and scarring. Misuse of certain medication can be a cause of priapism. However, visiting an El Paso urology clinic can differentiate the source of the problem and guide you towards correct treatment. Finally, another common type of ED is known as Peyronie’s disease. This is typically caused by scar tissue that is formed along the penis. Depending on how severe the scarring is to the penis, it can cause a painful and even uncomfortable sexual experience. Past trauma to the groin area, causing internal bleeding of the penis may cause peyronie’s disease.
Professional urological specialists should be contacted immediately when treating any form of erectile dysfunction to prevent long- term damage and enable a healthier sexual lifestyle for you and your partner.
