Impotence or erectile dysfunction was once dreaded as man’s worst nightmare. Given the advances in medicine and nutrition research, however, it no longer has to be a scary thing, it can be treated.
What is impotence?
Impotence is defined as the inability to achieve or maintain an erection to perform intercourse or ejaculation.
There are two forms: primary and secondary. Men with primary impotence have never had sufficient erection for satisfactory intercourse. This form is rare and is often caused by extreme psychological conditions, such as intense fear of intimacy, extreme feelings of guilt, and severe anxiety.
Secondary impotence, defined as the loss of erectile function after a period of normal function, is more common. Men with secondary erection are typically able to engage in intercourse only 25% of the time. This form of erection typically comes on gradually and is usually more easily treated than primary one.
What causes impotence?
The major cause can be any disease. It is estimated that over 70% of all serious cases are the result of diabetes, kidney diseases, multiple sclerosis, endocrine disorders, vascular diseases and high blood pressure, as well as neurological diseases. It is estimated that between 50% and 60% of diabetic men are impotent.
