Impotence in men can happen at any age

Impotence or erectile dysfunction is considered the inability to get or keep any erection for a period of time. Impotence and erectile dysfunction are caused by a number of factors including high or low blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, atherosclerosis and stroke. Impotence or erectile dysfunction symptoms can be treated with ED pumps or penis pumps. ED pumps or penis pumps are the only noninvasive and drug free way approved by the FDA to treat impotence. ED pumps and penis pumps are made the same way and work in the same way. The pumps are made of a plastic tube, pump and constriction bands inside the tube. The penis is inserted into the tube and the pump is used to remove any air from the inside of the tube. This creates an internal pressure, causing the blood vessels to allow blood through and then constricts them when fully pumped up to close the vessels so an erection takes place.

Impotence causes can be treated with medication. There is no age limit for impotence to begin or end. Younger men generally are seen with impotence due to high stress levels and depression, while older men have impotence due to factors such as age and atherosclerosis and heart disease. Many of the causes of impotence can be controlled with a healthy lifestyle and diet as well as medication so that the impotence goes away and normal penis functioning for sex is resumed. Impotence affects one out of every 7 men under the age of 30, and 2 in every 8 men over the age of 50. Only a doctor can diagnose impotence, but fortunately penis pumps can be purchased without a prescription. Impotence can be a symptom of more serious health conditions such as heart disease, stroke and enlarged prostate disorders.
