ED & Impotence
Erectile dysfunction or impotence is the repeated inability to get and maintain an erection for intercourse. Erectile dysfunction is not a disease and usually happens to most men at some point in their lives. Contrary to popular belief, erectile dysfunction or impotence is not uncommon and men should not feel ashamed if they are suffering from erectile problems.
There are several causes to erectile dysfunction. Common everyday life habits such as smoking and drinking have also been known to cause erectile dysfunction to a certain degree.
Occasionally men might even suffer from erectile dysfunction or impotence due to the medication that they are taking for their blood pressure or ulcer. Side effects from anti-depressants, appetite suppressants and anti-histamines have been known to result in erectile dysfunction.
More often than not, erectile dysfunction is caused by physiological reasons such as work stress, anxiety, low self-esteem or even the basic pressure to perform.
