Are you experiencing unexpected or unusual sudden impotence? Not sure why you’re dealing with sudden erectile dysfunction? Fear not, we’re here to outline some common reasons why you may be experiencing this issue and some ways in which you can address the problem so you can get your sexual health back on track.
What is Erectile Dysfunction
In its simplest terms, erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get and maintain an erection during sex. While not being able to get an erection sometimes isn’t a huge issue; it can be a problem if it’s an ongoing problem. This issue can cause stress, lower your self-confidence, and even create problems in your romantic relationships.
ED is a very common issue. In fact, more than 3 million cases of it are reported every year. It’s most common for men who are 40 or older. Here are the general symptoms of ED:
- Difficulty getting an erection
- Difficulty maintaining one during sexual activity
- Decreased interest in sex
If you are experiencing these symptoms and they’ve lasted longer than 2 months you should talk to a doctor about the issue.
5 Reasons You’re Dealing with Sudden Erectile Dysfunction
Sudden ED can be scary, but it can be easily addressed depending on what’s causing it. Here are 5 reasons why you could be experiencing this issue, and how you can deal with them to solve the problem.
You have an Endocrine Disease
Your body’s endocrine system is responsible for regulating things like your metabolism and sexual function. If you have an endocrine disease like diabetes this can affect your body’s ability to utilize your hormone insulin, which can lead to impotence. It can also lead to nerve damage, which affects penis sensation, and interferes with blood flow and overall hormone levels.
You Have a Neurological or Nerve Disorder
Did you know that neurological conditions increase your risk for impotence? This is because your nerve conditions affect your brain’s ability to communicate with your reproductive system, which can lead to the inability to maintain an erection. Here are some common neurological disorders that can potentially lead to impotence:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Multiple sclerosis
If you have any of these neurological disorders and are experiencing impotence, you should talk to your doctor about new and experimental treatments for ED.
Many medications can impact your blood flow, which will lead to impotence. Here are some types of medication that are known to cause impotence:
- Beta-blocks (like Correg and Lopressor)
- Cancer chemotherapy medications
- Central nervous system stimulants
- Central nervous system depressants
- Synthetic hormones
It’s important to note, however, that you should not just stop taking your medication if signs of impotence pop up. Instead, consult your doctor about potentially switching to a medication that won’t create this issue.
Many common issues like depression and anxiety have been linked to an increased risk for impotence. Every day stress from work and relationship issues can also result in erectile dysfunction, as can fatigue. If you’re experiencing these issues, you can try to address them first, try different ways to start your sex drive, and then see if that solves your impotence issues.
Final Thoughts on Erectile Dysfunction
ED can be an unpleasant thing, but there are ways to manage this issue and solve it entirely. By knowing the potential causes of sudden erectile dysfunction, and recognizing the signs of impotence in men, you can find the best solution for you.
