Causes of ED Q&A
Organic ED is the most prevalent cause of ED, especially in older men, and involves abnormalities in the penile arteries, veins, or both. When there is an arterial problem, it is usually caused by arteriosclerosis, or artery hardening, though trauma to the arteries may also be the reason. If you want to learn more about ED (erectile dysfunction), come to American Male Medical or read our Q&A about it. Here are some of the most common questions we get about ED and its causes!

ED is when a man isn’t able to get or keep an erection. This can make sexual activity difficult or even impossible, as well as affect a man’s confidence. The truth, though, is that ED can be natural and is quite common.
Another fact is that male sexual arousal is a pretty complex process, as it involves hormones, the brain, emotions, nerves, muscles, and blood vessels. An issue with any one of those things can cause ED, and a mental health problem or stress can complicate it further. It could be that a combination of physical and psychological factors are causing your case of ED, like a physical condition combined with anxiety about sexual performance.
Age can be a cause, as with age, a man’s testosterone levels drop naturally. It’s common for ED to be caused by a chronic health condition like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, a heart condition, obesity, or diabetes. It’s also very common for the cause to be restricted blood flow in the area. Also, there are times when ED doesn’t have a natural cause, like when it’s a symptom of a medication. On top of all that, stress, relationship problems, anxiety, and other psychological problems can cause or contribute to ED.
Because there are so many potential causes, as well as many possible factors involved, it’s always best to see a professional about ED and its cause. Just because ED can happen naturally, it doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be addressed!
By addressing the causes and factors involved in a man’s case of ED, it’s possible to cure the condition or at least relieve the symptoms! In fact, in many cases, the symptoms can be relieved greatly, and in many other cases, the condition can be cured entirely. At American Male Medical, we’re able to help determine what could be causing your case of ED and treat that cause, relieving your symptoms or even curing the condition.
Remember, because there are so many factors involved in ED and so many possible causes, professional diagnosis, and professional treatment are necessary. If you try to address ED yourself, you’ll only be addressing the symptom of an underlying problem, and you might harm yourself.
Sometimes professional treatment involves medication, while other times treatment can be wave therapy which uses energy pulses to stimulate the production of new blood vessels! When low testosterone is the cause of a man’s ED, testosterone replacement therapy may be the best treatment for him. We offer these treatments here at our clinic along with other options. There are lots of options for you here at American Male Medical!
