Impotence Causes

There are many things that contribute to impotence or erectile dysfunction. Impotence or erectile dysfunction is the inability of a male to begin or keep an erection for any period of time. Impotence or erectile dysfunction is caused by many different things including but not limited to high or low blood pressure, diabetes, atherosclerosis, obesity, smoking and heart disease or stroke.

Impotence can be treated depending on the cause. The most common treatments for impotence is penis pumps or ED pumps. Penis pumps or ED pumps are a simple contraption that is made of a plastic tube, a pump and a few constriction bands. The penis is inserted into the pump and bands, then the pump is used to make the inside of the tube’s pressure less than that outside the tube by releasing air from the tube. An erection is caused due to the engorging of the penis with blood, thereby allowing an erection naturally without drugs.

Impotence causes such as heart disease can be treated with medication and exercise as well as a healthy lifestyle. For impotence or erectile dysfunction, ED pumps or penis pumps have no side effects, thus being the most favored by doctors. As with any medication treatments that will be used to control blood pressure, stroke, diabetes or heart disease, side effects are common; even if they are minute. The most common causes highlighted above are mostly preventable. A healthy lifestyle and diet as well as regular annual exams with a physician are recommended to keep the possibility lower for impotence. ED pumps or penis pumps do not require a prescription like medications, and will help to treat regardless of the causes of the impotence. Causes of impotence will depend on your personal health history and record as well as other important factors a physician can diagnose.
