What are the Signs and Symptoms of ED?
Many men become hugely concerned and stressed because they think they are suffering from ED or erectile dysfunction. This is a common condition in men, particularly those that are over the age of around 40 years. However, it is important to remember that failing to achieve an erection now and again does not mean you have ED, which is what some men start to worry about. If you are unsure as to whether you may be suffering from erectile dysfunction, it is worth familiarizing yourself with the signs and symptoms, as this can give you a better idea of whether your erection issue is a short-term one or a one-off or whether it may be a longer term problem.
Some of the signs to look out for
It is important not to panic and assume you have ED if you fail to achieve an erection now and again. However, it is also important not to bury your head in the sand if you feel you may have erectile dysfunction. Many men simply refuse to get treatment or advice because they feel embarrassed or even ashamed in some cases. However, this condition is not a cause for embarrassment and shame. In fact, it is a very common condition. Some of the common signs to look out for include:
- Trouble achieving an erection even when sexually aroused
- An erection that is very weak
- Difficulties when it comes to maintaining an erection long enough to have sex
- A reduction in libido
- Problems when it comes to ejaculating
It is also worth noting that there are various conditions that can increase the risk of developing erectile dysfunction, although it can simply result from getting older and hormonal changes. Certain medications can also have an impact when it comes to the development of erectile dysfunction.
Some men may experience some of the above symptoms on occasion or for a short period of time but this does not necessarily mean that you have erectile dysfunction. However, if the problem persists over a longer period, it is important to seek advice from an expert so that checks can be carried out to determine whether it is ED.
