As everybody knows you can't get pregnant and have kids if your husband is impotent. A friend of mine has a husband who has trouble getting an erection and I thought I would look into some of the cause s of this condition for her.
Although impotency is often thought of as a condition caused by old age, it is in fact something that can be caused by a wide range of conditions, so much so that it is estimated that around 20 million men in the USA alone will suffer from impotency at some time in their life.
The condition (which is also more medically correctly known as Erectile Dysfunction or ED) is defined as the inability to achieve or maintain an erection of the penis in order to enjoy satisfactory sexual intercourse.
There are many reasons why such a condition might exist, but every cause can be classified under one of two headings. On the one hand you have psychogenic impotence which is caused by mental or emotional factors, whilst on the other hand you have organic impotence which is due to some physical cause, condition or bodily malfunction.
Obviously, one of the most common reasons for impotence is the natural advance of the years which clearly represents an organic impotence problem, because no-one has (as yet) found a way to successfully prevent ageing.
However, impotency can also be a result of the effects of stress (either physical or mental), excessive tiredness, depression (sometimes brought on by an inability to perform sexually) or overconsumption of either alcohol or tobacco. Recreational drugs can be another potential cause.
It is also widely acknowledged that some men will suffer impotency as a result of the side-effects of pharmaceutical drugs that they are taking as a treatment for entirely unrelated medical conditions.
The basic fact is, there are many poor health or lifestyle choices that we all make which can eventually increase the chances of suffering Erectile Dysfunction. These poor choices will adversely affect your overall body condition and deteriorating sexual performance is often the result. For example, if you are seriously overweight, the chances of suffering ED are significantly increased and too much smoking or drinking is certainly not going to help. This is all exactly the kind of information your medical practitioner needs.
The good news is, all of these causes tend to be of a temporary nature because in all these situations, the cause of the condition can be isolated and that means it can be treated as appropriate.
Of course the usual treatment for the condition is Viagara or Cialis which I highly recommend as the sex associated with this type of cure can be quite exciting!
