Erectile dysfunction (ED) – the inability to achieve and/or maintain an erection sufficient for intercourse – remains an important social and medical problem throughout the world. According to modern ideas, with sexual stimulation, the parasympathetic nervous system is activated.
Violations of potency are divided into two main varieties: erectile dysfunction and early ejaculation. Erection occurs as follows. In response to a sexual stimulus, the walls of the blood vessels that supply the penis to the blood are relaxed. As a result, the penis, or rather, its cavernous bodies, is filled with blood. However, if, for some reason, a spasm occurs, then there is no erection, or it is too weak.
Sometimes the erection weakens once and is quickly restored – in this case, the cause of the erectile dysfunction is not terrible (for example, the patient is tired after work, or quarreled with his wife, perenervnichal). To improve the erection, do not run to a specialist – just calm down, relax or use a mild natural stimulant.
In other cases, erectile dysfunction can occur regularly. It is very important to establish the cause – if this is a disease, then we must immediately start treatment. It can be a serious disease – diabetes, CNS diseases, prostate inflammation, adenoma or swelling in the prostate, testis, hormonal failures, trauma to the genitourinary system and other health problems.
Potency regulators are a group of drugs, including various drugs used to treat erectile dysfunction.
