While low libido is the most common female sexual problem, erectile difficulties are the most common male one.
Many men experience erectile difficulties at some point or other. This does not necessarily mean you will need a prescription for Viagra. Lifestyle issues, such as stress or drinking, or other health problems may be the cause.
Like low libido, lifestyle issues such as alcohol, drugs, poor diet and a lack of exercise can all affect your erection. And in a similar vein, problems such as work or money worries do too. This means that lifestyle changes can fix the problem, but it it still wisest to see your doctor.
Although it may be embarrassing, it is important to consult your doctor so that he or she can rule out any underlying health issues. Older men in particular may assume that age is the problem. However, it is entirely possible that erectile problems are caused by an undiagnosed illness. For the sake of your health, we strongly urge you to see your doctor.
It can be dangerous to diagnose yourself. Furthermore, trying to treat the problem by buying drugs such as Viagra over the Internet is a terrible idea. You have no idea if you are getting the real thing, or at least a decent generic equivalent. That means that these may not work, or worse still, they could contain harmful substances.
A man who has recurrent erectile problems may draw away from his partner. He may be ashamed or fear that he will be unable to perform. This in turn may cause him to withdraw emotionally as well as sexually. A committed partner can weather the storms of erectile problems a lot easier than being frozen out.
