Signs of Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction Boca Raton, FL

Although the inability to sustain an erection at one time may not be a reason to be concerned, recurrent events of erectile dysfunction (ED) can have detrimental effects on your sexual wellness. Do not hesitate to visit the wellness center about what is going on. The doctor will consider the signs that you are experiencing and recommend the appropriate action to take.

Signs of erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is a prevalent issue, and the signs may vary from one person to another. While one person may be able to hold an erection for short periods, another might be unable to achieve an erection at all. Nevertheless, the key to treating ED successfully is to identify the early warning signs and get help promptly. Signs include the following. 

Problem achieving an erection

The main symptom of ED is the inability to get enough erection when desired. ED may be a temporary problem or a long-term issue for some people. However, it can persist to the extent where it can interfere with personal relationships.

An erratic issue with getting an erection may be regarded as normal. However, if a person’s inability to get an erection becomes unpredictable, meaning that it is hard to get one when desired, it might be a case of ED, even if the person can still get an erection occasionally.

Difficulty sustaining an erection

Maybe it is possible to get an erection, but it does not last long enough to finish or truly enjoy the activity. Note that erectile dysfunction can be related to factors like stress, hormones, the nervous system, emotional wellbeing, muscle tone, medications and circulation.

Although being unable to sustain an erection may be situational, sexual arousal is a complex body function, so it is in one’s best interest to visit the wellness center for a consultation if sustaining an erection and having pleasurable sexual activity becomes a hassle.

Inability to get an erection

Some people may not be able to get an erection at all, which may cause distress, guilt, shame, embarrassment and other unpleasant emotions. In this situation, the person may also feel that their inability to engage in sexual activity has a significant impact on their relationship, affects their self-esteem and lowers their sense of health and sexual wellness.

Other signs to watch

A combination of psychological and physical factors may contribute to erectile dysfunction. For instance, a physical condition could limit the body’s ability to get an erection. This may lead to anxiety and further complicate the issue of ED. Other symptoms associated with ED include:

  • Premature ejaculation
  • Inability to ejaculate
  • Delayed ejaculation
  • Reduced libido or sex drive
  • A dysfunction in the muscles of the pelvic floor
  • Low levels of the hormone testosterone
  • Inability to get aroused after enough stimulation (known as anorgasmia)
  • Injury to the pelvis, such as pelvic fractures

Final note

The wellness center has professionals with training and experience to discuss and treat erectile dysfunction. Although ED is more prevalent in aging adults, it is completely possible to achieve sexual wellness well into your older years.
