8. Blood circulation: Erectile dysfunction
Blood is the reason why most of our organs work the way they do. When there is poor blood circulation, many things will stop working or will work from time to time. This includes the reproductive organs. Poor blood circulation can cause erectile dysfunction in men. This issue is represented by consistent problems in sustaining and even achieving an erection even though the subject feels aroused.
Erectile dysfunction (also known as ED) is also frequently associated with atherosclerosis. This is another very important reason to leave any embarrassment behind and to contact your doctor as soon as this becomes a recurrent problem. Due to erectile dysfunction being caused by physical and not emotional issues, it can be treated if diagnosed correctly.
Whenever visiting your doctor, make sure to take with you not only a list of your current medications and illnesses. But also a detailed list of the dates and times erectile dysfunction has happened to you. This will help the doctor diagnose the reasons behind erectile dysfunction and help you correct it as soon as possible. Once the issue is solved, either blood circulation or atherosclerosis, you will be able to achieve and sustain proper erections, thus returning to a satisfactory sexual life with your partner.
Do not feel ashamed or afraid to talk about this. Many men suffer from erectile dysfunction and the only way to solve the issue is to talk to a physician. Keeping it a secret will only add to your stress and anxiety and make the problem not only physical but also psychological. Leading to more complicated treatment. Make sure to talk about it with your physician and also with your partner to get the proper support and treatment, you will soon be happy again!
