Most men are embarrassed to go to the doctor with such an intimate problem as impotence – the inability to achieve and also maintain an erection. It should be remembered that if you have a weak erection, you must definitely consult a doctor, as this may be the first sign of the disease. At the age of 35-40 years, 40 percent of patients have erectile dysfunction (impotence).
There are a large number of reasons that can cause such a disease, since it is a type of inflammatory disease of the pelvic organs and the genitourinary system, hormonal failure occurs, and there is insufficient blood flow in the vessels.
Impotence can occur as a result of disorders of the nervous, endocrine, and cardiovascular systems. There are cases when the disease occurs due to the psychoneurological characteristics of a man. Doctors are sure that one of the most important values is played by the psychological component. It happens that after the elimination of physiological problems, an erection does not occur due to a psychological barrier. That is why it is also necessary to seek help from a professional psychologist.
Specialists identify several main types of impotence, namely, a disease that occurs as a result of depression, frequent stress and overwork is called psychogenic. Neurogenic impotence occurs due to spinal cord injury or spinal hernia. The venogenic form of the disease occurs due to vascular disorders. Men who have diabetes may suffer from a hormonal type of disease. With the defeat of the penile and coronary vessels, an arteriogenic form of the disease occurs. There is also age-related impotence, which occurs due to the development of systemic diseases that are caused by the age of a man.
Impotence is treated using modern medical technologies. Treatment is aimed at eliminating the immediate cause that caused the development of this disease. After determining the form of the disease and the general health of the patient, the doctor individually prescribes medication. After the course of treatment, the body tone increases, the body is saturated with microelements and vitamins, which leads to an increase in blood flow in the penis.
