Erections depend on proper blood flow to the penis. Natural erection process depends on many things in the human organism (brain, blood vessels, nerves, etc) which should work properly. When a male is sexually aroused, the brain sends an impulse or message to the arteries in the penis to widen. The blood flows to the penis and fills it. The penis expands, gets rigid, and becomes erect. If anything in the erection process goes wrong the blood flow can be restricted or stopped. This results in erectile problems. Erectile dysfunction symptoms include:
- Trouble in achieving an erection.
- Trouble in maintaining an erection hard enough for sex.
- Trouble in maintaining an erection before or during sex.
If these problems persist a person is likely to have erectile dysfunction and should consult a doctor to cope with this condition. ED may be mild, moderate or severe. Some men have difficulty in getting an erection every time they try to have sex. Others may have erectile problems periodically or on occasion. Still ED is a health condition that can be treated and should be treated as soon as possible. ED can be treated with different methods, but most safe and effective treatment option nowadays is PDE5 inhibitors. The most popular PDE5 inhibitor is Viagra
– a prescription medication used to treat ED in men.
