Understanding the Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

There are both physical and psychological factors that can contribute to the ability to achieve and maintain an erection. Diseases and imbalances in the body commonly lead to nerve damage or interference that can cause Erectile Dysfunction. Common vascular diseases leading to ED include Arteriosclerosis, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

Neurological diseases such as Multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's Diabetes are also known to have an impact. Other common conditions linked to ED are hormonal imbalance, kidney failure, dialysis, pelvic surgeries and spinal injuries. The ingredients of some prescription drugs are shown to produce side effects that result in erectile problems. Substance abuse can also play a large role. Psychological factors include traumatic sexual experiences from the past, stress, depression and anxiety.

Treatment Options

There are several treatment options that are considered when evaluating a patient's particular condition including oral medications, intraurethral suppositories, injectable medications, implants, and vacuum devices. Sometimes adjusting current medications or making lifestyle improvements is also part of the treatment plan. Medical research continues to shed new light on the treatment of ED and Dr. Kaplan's recommendations for treatment are unique to each patient based on his particular condition and medical history.
