Erectile dysfunction is emotionally devastating for men. Most sufferers find the condition embarrassing. In addition, it can severely impact relationships. Figuring out the cause of ED is imperative to solving the problem. In this article, we will explore possible causes of erectile dysfunction in men.
The Anxiety and Depression Association of America states that over 40 million people suffer from depression. It can impact all areas of life, even your performance in the bedroom. The brain acts as an erogenous zone. Sexual excitement builds in the mind and then flows out to the rest of the body.
Depression causes a lack of desire and often leads to erectile dysfunction. Sadly, many medications that are used to treat depression also suppress the sex drive, which makes it even harder to achieve an orgasm or can delay the orgasm substantially, so the man loses his erection mid-performance.
Having a few drinks lowers your inhibitions and might increase your sexual desire. Sadly, overindulging in booze also makes it harder to achieve orgasm, and heavy drinking impacts potency. Luckily, the effects are temporary and once you sober up then your ability to achieve an erection will return.
Moderate drinking does not impact your sex life. In fact, having one or two drinks a day might even prove beneficial to your heart.
