There are numerous causes of erectile dysfunction (ED), cites Cedars Sinai Hospital. Among them are stress, depression, weakened blood flow, hardened arteries, diabetes, nerve damage, medication, low testosterone, weight gain, and immobility. There are also various forms of ED, each of which can have its own underlying cause.
If ED is preventing you from having a satisfying sex life, there is hope and help available. Knowing what causes erectile dysfunction is the first step to getting effective treatment. When our health and wellness team treats you for ED, we start by identifying its cause, identifying treatment options for any underlying conditions, and prescribing appropriate treatment to restore your sex life.
What Are the Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction?
The primary symptom of ED can be distressing for many men. According to Cleveland Clinic research, if you are struggling with ED, you are not alone — it affects one in ten men during their lifetime. Its primary symptom is being unable to get an erection when you want one. Additional symptoms include:
- Being unable to get a hard, firm erection
- Inconsistent or unproductively short erections
- Absence of erections at night
- Absence of erections when waking
- Numbness in the penis and buttocks
- Leg cramps readily relieved with exercise
You do not have to live with erectile dysfunction or give up on the idea of a pleasurable sex life. By reviewing your symptoms with a member of our staff, we can work with you to find the best available treatment option for the specific cause of your ED.
