Erectile dysfunction is a condition in which it’s not possible to achieve an erection, or the erection is not rigid enough for intercourse. ED is also present if the erection does not remain rigid enough to continue engaging in intercourse. While every male is likely to experience an issue once in a while, there are signs indicating the need for ED treatment. Here are some of the indicators that should motivate you to see our team.
You Notice a Trend
Some doctors counsel their patients to apply what’s known as the 25% rule. Simply put, if you experience a problem achieving or maintaining an erection long enough to have intercourse once out of every four attempts, it’s time to seek treatment. Along with tests to determine if there is a physical reason for the ED, the doctor can also arrange for counseling to see if there’s an emotional or psychological cause behind your experience. The results will make it easier to focus on the type of ED treatment that’s right for you.
Your Personality Changes around the Same Time
Many men will attribute an increase in irritation or sudden anger to the inability to achieve an erection. In fact, the change in demeanor may be connected with the same cause that’s affecting the ability to perform. Did you know that mood changes can be a sign of a hormonal imbalance? The same is true with ED. The only way to know for sure is to see a doctor and undergo tests to determine if your hormones, particularly your testosterone, is within the normal range. The proper approach to ED treatment could yield results in a matter of weeks.
The Soft or Missing Erections Are Causing Relationship Problems
While there are other ways to please a partner, the presence of the ED often affects the feelings of a spouse or significant other. In spite or reassurances, it’s not unusual for the partner to begin to feel that the root cause is a lack of attraction on your part or a sign that you are in some way unhappy in the relationship. Even if you’ve resisted seeking medical help up to this point, it’s time to seek some sort of ED treatment under the care of a medical professional.
