Erectile dysfunction or ED has become a common male sexual dysfunction in the current scenario. Many people visit Dr. P K Gupta for erectile dysfunction treatment in Delhi, India. All men can suffer from erection disorder throughout their lives. However, they must learn to distinguish between what is a trigger, which can happen to everyone, and what can already be a more serious problem with a varied origin.

  • 90%

men with erectile dysfunction do not talk to their loved ones.

  • 75%

Men with sexual problems do not consult a doctor and do not go to a pharmacy.

  • 90%

Sexology treatments are counterfeit. Dr. P K Gupta only prescribes the best medicines.

The Erectile Dysfunction is the inability to get and maintain an erection for satisfactory sexual intercourse. This symptomatology must persist for six months to be considered a pathology. In addition, there must be a failure every four sex so that the man begins to suspect that he has a problem beyond a simple trigger.

Signs of Erectile Dysfunctions

Specifically, the signs that make suspect the existence of Erectile Dysfunction are, in addition to those mentioned:

  • spontaneous erections in the morning less frequent and with less stiffness;
  • if the climax is reached faster, in less time or with an incomplete erection;
  • in case of loss of erection when changing posture; or when an erection is not achieved at all.

The problem in obtaining or keeping an erection can also be a symptom of an underlying health condition that requires erectile dysfunction treatment in Delhi and a risk issue for cardiovascular disease down the road.

Causes of Erectile Dysfunction (Impotency)

It is always worth consulting a sexologist in Delhi regarding persistent erection issues because the reason for erectile dysfunction might be any one of a variety of serious medical conditions.

Erection is defined as a vascular and nervous mechanism in which hormonal factors intervene. Those responsible for erection are the corpora cavernosa of the penis that are responsible for carrying blood to it. The causes that will cause problems for the erection to take place are divided into organic, which happens in 90% of cases, and psychic or nervous, in the remaining 10%.

Among the organic causes include:

Circulatory disorders – an erection occurs when blood fills the penis and a valve at the base of the organ blocks it. Diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, clots and atherosclerosis “hardening of the arteries” can hinder this process. These circulatory problems are the main cause of erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction is often the first visible symptom related to cardiovascular disease;

Peyronie’s disease – the condition that causes the appearance of fibrous nodules and plaques in the genitals, and an interruption in blood flow;

Cancer – cancer can attack nerves or arteries essential for erection;

Surgery – surgery in the pelvic area, and especially on the prostate due to cancer, can damage the nerves and arteries necessary to get and maintain an erection;

Pelvic or spinal cord injury – sometimes an injury cuts through the nerves that stimulate an erection;

Hormonal disorders – a lack of testosterone (the male sex hormone) can result from testicular failure, a pituitary gland disorder or the use of certain medications;

Alcoholism – chronic alcoholism can cause erectile dysfunction, even if there is no alcohol in the blood at the time of sexual intercourse;

Smoking – smoking cigarettes constricts blood vessels. This can reduce blood flow to the penis and cause erectile dysfunction;

Medications – the following are some of the drugs that can cause erectile dysfunction:

  • the alcohol;
  • antidepressants (e.g. citalopram, paroxetine, sertraline, amitriptyline)
  • anticancer drugs;
  • anxiolytic drugs and sedatives (e.g. diazepam).
  • cocaine;
  • estrogens;
  • opioids;
  • diuretics (e.g. spironolactone, chlorthalidone)

Depression – this disorder is a common cause of erectile dysfunction. Depression is both a physical and mental disorder, which can have physical repercussions even if the person is comfortable in a sexual situation;

Performance anxiety – most men have had erectile dysfunction at some point due to their fear of sexual failure. If this phenomenon occurs often, the apprehension felt with regard to sexual intercourse can trigger a nervous reaction which prevents erection and a vicious circle is likely to be established;

Situational psychological disorders – some men experience difficulties only in certain situations or with certain people. In a tormented relationship, men are sometimes unable to get an erection with their partner, but have no problem getting it the rest of the time;

Sexual aversion – it is rare for someone to feel repulsion for sex. This is more common among those who were sexually abused as children and those who were raised on strict religious principles. This aversion sometimes exists in homosexual or bisexual individuals who seek to lead a heterosexual life against their natural inclinations;

Complications

Complications ensuing from erectile dysfunction will include:

  • A dissatisfactory sex life
  • Stress or anxiety
  • Embarrassment or low vanity
  • Relationship issues
  • The inability to induce your partner pregnant

Diagnostic

It is important to talk to your sexologist in Delhi about your erection problems, as they can be a symptom of another condition such as cardiovascular disease.

In order to determine the cause of erection problems, a sexologist in Delhi will initiate a questioning about the presence of other medical conditions, the drugs used, when erection problems occur and how they manifest themselves.

Standard questionnaires or surveys on erectile function and sexual satisfaction could be used to establish the nature of erectile dysfunction. Blood pressure and blood level measurements are part of the basic tests.

A certain number of devices, notably ultrasound, make it possible to follow the ebb and flow of blood in the penis, in order to detect circulatory disorders.

Erectile Dysfunction Treatment & Prevention

There is a wide variety of option for impotence treatment in Delhi, including tablets, injections or devices to be used immediately before intercourse. Others resort to surgery.

Lifestyle changes

such as quitting smoking, maintaining a healthy weight and diet, and exercising regularly are important things to improve erectile dysfunction. Staying in control of certain underlying conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure will help decrease the frequency of erectile dysfunction.

Medicines for erectile dysfunction include phosphodiesterase inhibitors, prostaglandins, yohimbine and testosterone.

Phosphodiesterase inhibitors

This class of drugs includes sildenafil, tadalafil, and vardenafil. They work by blocking an enzyme called phosphodiesterase type 5, allowing a greater supply of blood to the penis and facilitating erection. These drugs are usually taken before sex and are only effective if the man is sexually stimulated.

The time of use and the duration of the effects depend on the medicine used. The most common side effects are headache. However, there are potential dangers of interaction with other drugs. Anyone taking this medication should tell the sexologist about other medications they are taking, especially nitrates taken because of a heart condition (e.g. nitroglycerin spray, pills, or patches).

Prostaglandins (alprostadil)

Alprostadil is either injected into the penis or inserted into the urethra as a pellet. It causes an erection without sexual stimulation, which usually lasts about 60 minutes. The danger with this method is that too high a dose may cause priapism, that is, a persistent erection. This condition requires immediate medical attention as it can result in severe bruising, hemorrhage, severe pain, and permanent damage to the penis. When the sexologist has determined the appropriate dose, the man can administer the injection himself at home.

To make the medication more effective, some doctors recommend combining alprostadil with other ingredients such as phentolamine. This mixture is prepared in pharmacies according to the doctor’s prescription. It is injected into the penis before intercourse.

Testosterone

These hormones are only useful in men who suffer from a particular disorder, including hypogonadism  (smallness of the testicles), which has the effect of lowering the normal level of testosterone in the blood. In this case, a testosterone supplement may be recommended in order to increase interest in sexual activities as well as erections.

Common non-drug methods of erectile dysfunction treatment in Delhi include vacuum devices and penile implants.

Vacuum devices

These devices have a tube which is placed on the penis and ensures tight contact with its base. By pumping air from the tube, blood is drawn into the penis. A ring installed at the base of the penis helps maintain the erection;

Penile implants

This treatment requires the permanent implantation of flexible rods or similar devices in the penis. Simple versions have the disadvantage of causing a permanent erection. The most recent devices (and the most expensive) include inflatable rods activated by a small pump and controlled by a switch placed in the scrotum. Compression of the scrotum leads to erection of the penis, without there necessarily being sexual stimulation. The penis itself, however, remains flaccid, so its diameter and length are generally less than during a natural erection. Its rigidity is also reduced, even if it is sufficient to allow sexual intercourse.
