Erectile dysfunction (ED) can be caused by a variety of sources. Diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular lesions, medication, diet and hormonal issues can all be a factor or the sole reason for ED.
The most common cause for ED is weak flow of blood to the penis or from the penis. With weak flow an erection may be achieved with great difficulty but the quality is poor. In addition to medical issues environmental issues can cause ED such as irregular work hours, an unbalanced diet, a sedentary lifestyle, or an abundance of stress. Medications can cause erectile dysfunction. A variety of drugs including antihistamines and antihypertensive drugs may also cause ED.
Rather than seeing a doctor men generally go to a friend that has had a similar issue. However, you should see a doctor. Many men suffering from ED are helped with compound medication therapy.
