Erectile dysfunction is a very common type of sexual dysfunction for men. Almost one in every three men develop erectile dysfunction at some point in their life. There are two forms of erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and rapid ejaculation.
Premature ejaculation occurs when a person ejaculates too quickly. Basically premature ejaculation will cause the guy to ejaculate from just a small amount of sexual stimulation. In some cases it may not be early ejaculation but rather ejaculating immediately after penetration begins.
The Cause of Erectile Dysfunction
Premature ejaculation and rapid ejaculation are just side effects of having erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction itself is caused from having sexual anxiety. If you are too anxious during sexual stimulation and get worried about staying hard then it could cause you to ejaculate prematurely. Although the condition is not always caused by your mentality during sexual interaction and it can be a physical condition as well.
From the research that has been done on the subject up until this point it is possible that rapid ejaculation occurs as a result of your penis being too sensitive. If this is the case then it would cause you to ejaculate rapidly just from small and usual sexual sensations where for most people it would be just a mere turn on.
There are of course the psychological causes to the condition as well. Premature ejaculation, as already mentioned, is generally psychologically caused by having sexual anxiety. This is a common problem as many men feel they are unable to stay hard or satisfy their partner so it ends up being an ultimate let down for them and they ejaculate too quickly.
Treating Erectile Dysfunction
While treating the condition may be changing your mentality and becoming more focused on enjoying yourself during sex, there are some possibly erectile dysfunction treatments that you could consider. If you are having trouble getting your mind in the right state during sexual activities then you may want to visit a psychologist to get counseling.
Usually the best results come from this if you and your partner go to the sessions together and are completely open with each other. You may also be recommended to do certain exercises that will focus on enjoyment of the activities and not the actual performance. In certain situations you may also be suggested to complete some stress exercises as well.
Erectile dysfunction treatments for those that developed the condition due to hormone problems would include adding or removing medication from your daily routine. There are some medications that can cause erectile dysfunction but you should not remove them without your doctor’s permission.
If you are suffering from diabetes, it is absolutely vital that you get the proper medication, diet plan, and exercise frequently in order to maintain proper blood sugar control. If you avoid this it will cause the erectile dysfunction to become more severe.
It is also possible that you have caused irreversible damage to the blood vessels or nerves associated with your penis. If this is the case then some possible erectile dysfunction treatments for you would include using a vacuum device, injection therapy, medication, vascular surgery, or getting penile implants.
Instead of going into detail on each of these erectile dysfunction treatments you can do further research on them later. Your doctor will also be able to determine which is the best treatment method for you.
