What is ED and how to treat it?

His Clinic · November 22, 2018

Most men will experience erection problems (impotence) from time to time. It’s not something to worry about, as our bodies react to things like stress, tiredness, and anxiety in different ways. But if it happens often, it’s possible you might be experiencing erectile dysfunction (ED).

The good news is that if you’re experiencing symptoms of ED you don’t need to worry. According to a 2016 study, ED is surprisingly common, with at least 12 million men in the U.S being affected. So, what’s the best way to treat ED?

While what causes ED varies from man to man, there are proven medications that can help sufferers get their sex life back to normal. If you’re dealing with erectile dysfunction, don’t worry, we’re here to help.

What causes ED?

Cardiac-related problems

Erectile dysfunction can be caused if a man’s heart can’t effectively pump enough blood to the penis. Issues such as the narrowing of penis blood vessels, clogged blood vessels, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol are common causes.

Hormonal imbalances

The body’s endocrine system is responsible for producing hormones that regulate metabolism, mood, and sexual function, among many other things. Hormonal imbalances can result in erectile dysfunction.


Some prescribed medication can lead to men experiencing erectile dysfunction. There’s a wide range of potential causes, but some examples of medication that can cause ED include:

  • Beta-blockers
  • Anxiety relief drugs
  • Synthetic hormones
  • Chemotherapy drugs
  • Alpha-adrenergic blockers

Neurological disorders

Neurological disorders tend to be severe for suffers and ED can result as a complication. Some neurological disorders that can cause erectile dysfunctions include:

  • Strokes
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Brain or spinal tumours

Lifestyle and Emotional Issues

In order to achieve an erection, a man will go through what is called the ‘excitement phase’. This phase charges sexual arousal and produces an erection. But, emotional disorders such as depression or anxiety can affect a man’s ability to become sexually aroused. Additionally, ED can strike if a man uses amphetamine-based drugs or drinks excessive amounts of alcohol.
