5 Causes Of Impotence
If you're planning on having children, you should know these 5 causes of impotence. Knowing some typical causes of impotence means that you can troubleshoot why an erectile disfunction (ED) episode occurs. There are many causes of impotence so the following causes are only a starting point to figuring out why you couldn't get or maintain an erection.
- One of the top causes of impotence in men is drinking too much alcohol. It might sound counterintuitive as drinking may get you in the mood, but it may also rob you of your ability to get or maintain an erection. One or two beers is probably fine, but if you're hoping to score after that drunken rave, you might as well just go to bed alone. ED is probably going to be a visitor that night.
- Another top cause of impotence is the desire to perform well. Putting too much pressure on yourself before having sex could well keep you from, well, having sex. Instead, slow down a bit and spend more time with some involved foreplay, including oral stimulation. Having a willing oral partner may well get you shooting fireworks again.
- Daily stress can also be a popular cause of male impotence. The pressure of keeping up with school work or trying to climb to the top of the management heap at work may well affect your sex life and give you a battle with the dreaded ED monster. Find ways to relax in your off hours. Additional exercise is a great way to work out stress and frustrations.
- And, then, of course, there are the physiological causes of male impotence which can be detected by a doctor. A restriction in blood flow to the penis will hamper any hopes of an erection so you might want to get checked out by your doctor. If you do wake up periodically with an erection though and only have problems getting or maintaining an erection during sex, it's not a physical problem so a therapist may be the way to go instead of a medical doctor.
