What is an Erectile Dysfunction Condition?
A problem that affects more than 40 million men in the United States, Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a condition where a man fails to achieve and keep an erection firm enough to have intercourse. ED may also be called impotence, but the term is rarely used these days. Three key symptoms characterize Erectile Dysfunction: difficulty getting an erection, trouble keeping an erection, and a reduced sexual desire.
If you’re having occasional erection trouble, you shouldn’t be alarmed. It happens. That said, ongoing Erectile Dysfunction (ED) might be a sign of a more significant medical issue. Living with ED can be very disappointing; it can cause stress, affect your self-confidence, and also cause relationship issues.
Taking steps to improve testosterone levels may have a significant impact on erectile health. Natural approaches that can positively impact your levels of testosterone include losing weight, reducing stress, exercising, and improving your diet.
If your Erectile Dysfunction doctor identifies low testosterone levels may be the cause of your ED, he or she may recommend testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). TRT is a hormone replacement treatment that restores testosterone hormone levels. In most men, TRT has a significant impact on their sex drive, in addition to other benefits. In some cases, however, TRT may not address ED and, hence, address other causes.
