The most common causes of impotence in men
Find out what causes this incredibly common issue, and how to solve it
In the past, erectile dysfunction (ED) was often seen as something caused by performance anxiety or some kind of mental block. While this can sometimes be the case, the most recent medical research suggests that as many as 70% of cases of ED are caused by physical conditions that restrict blood flow. There are a number of straightforward physical sources of this sensitive issue that many men find difficult to talk about, but, luckily, most are easily solved with medication or lifestyle changes. The first step is letting go of shame and speaking openly and honestly to a doctor. Approximately 50% of men have dealt with ED, a prevalence that increases with age, so no doctor will be shocked or judgmental! It's estimated that 30 million men in the US alone suffer from this form of sexual dysfunction.
If you go to the doctor with complaints of ED, you will likely discover that the cause is something manageable and treatable. Curious? Click through the gallery to learn about the most common causes of impotence.
