When You Have Problems Maintaining an Erection
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the persistent inability to attain and/or maintain an erection sufficient for sexual performance. It has a significant impact on the quality of life for patients and their partners. A large UK study of men between 18-75 showed a rate of 39% for lifetime ED. That means more than 1 in 17 men in the UK are suffering from erectile dysfunction.
Penile erection is a complex neurovascular phenomenon. It includes arterial dilatation, trabecular smooth muscle relaxation and activation of the corporeal veno-occlusive mechanism. It is influenced by psychological factors such as stress, anxiety and depression as well as lifestyle choices such as smoking, drinking and illicit medication. Only about 10-20% of patients with ED have a solely psychogenic cause. A high proportion of men with ED often have an underlying organic cause such as high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus or a heart condition. Other possible causes include vascular diseases, neurological disorders and low testosterone levels.
Improving Your Sexual Health
It is our job to understand the possible causes and give you real solutions to improve your potency. No matter what the cause of the problem, erectile dysfunction treatment is effective in most cases. When there is no hormonal cause found, patients receive a comprehensive management plan with non-hormonal treatment options. By the end of the consultation you get the most suitable method to restore your virility. Medication in the form of oral tablets, intra-urethral applications or intra-carvenosal injection is available directly from the clinic. This saves you the potential embarrassment of visiting your local pharmacy.
