Erectile Problems: Two Major Types
Eastern Eye Staff
Whether erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, or both, these issues hinder the natural course of sexual intercourse. They may even leave you frustrated and anxious about coitus itself and can lower self-confidence, as it does so in many cases. So, here’s what you need to understand about these conditions and how you can get help with erectile problems.
Erectile Problems: Premature Ejaculation
Premature ejaculation occurs when you ejaculate and orgasm unintentionally, and too early-on in sexual intercourse. According to studies, there’s no specific timeframe regarding PE but often, it happens within only a minute of coitus itself, or less.
When this takes place, you lose your erection too soon and may leave your coitus unsatisfying. On a personal level, you’ll feel disgruntled, to the point of letting your self-esteem be affected by this condition.
Premature Ejaculation Causes
Based on research, it has been revealed that at least 40% of men experience premature ejaculation, the reason being that PE is largely related to instances of low levels of serotonin. For the latter, this brings about anxiety, or in extreme cases, depression.
These variables affect premature ejaculation in that anxiety, depression, even worries about PE while in the midst of coitus, lead to tension and distress. And when your body isn’t in its calm mode as it should be, you’ll have less control over ejaculation. That, or you may be indirectly motioning your body to not ejaculate at all.
In contrast, there are several possible symptoms you should take note of. This list includes biological complications that have to do with heart health or diseases and/or infections in your prostate.
Erectile Problems: Erectile Dysfunction
Very closely related to premature ejaculation is erectile dysfunction. Impotence, as it’s also termed, is the inability to have an erection for the duration you desire in coitus, or the inability to achieve “stiffness” altogether.
Erectile Dysfunction Causes
Though a large percentage of men experience erectile dysfunction as they age, similar to premature ejaculation, this condition also has to do with a slow transference of neurotransmitters from your nervous system towards the channels in your body that regulate blood flow.
Over-fatigue and constant worrying and/or stress (as you may already know, are more often than not, closely linked together) shake the balance of your hormones, as well as the balance of neurotransmitter transmission from your brain to the rest of your body. Such imbalances affect the natural stream of blood to your penis, which is what’s responsible for causing an erection.
If you go through ED not-too-frequently, and that you’re able to distinguish how it occurs most especially when you’re anxious or stressed, then you can calm down a bit. However, if you’re bothered by the frequency of erectile dysfunction despite the absence of the emotional/ mental factors mentioned, then have it diagnosed.
Nerve disorders, endocrine ailments, and cardiovascular diseases may be the reasons why the occurrence of erectile dysfunction is repeated almost regularly. Remember that neurologic functions relate to the reproductive system in that it determines the proper or improper transmission of messages from the brain to the latter, so that erection happens normally and without delays. The same is true with cardiac-related states regarding correct blood passage in and around the penile area.
