Erectile Dysfunction Men’s Diseases

Erectile dysfunction, the same as impotence, is one of the most common sexual problems commonly found in men of all ages.

Erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men is defined as the inability to achieve and maintain the erection needed to perform sexual intercourse. Erectile dysfunction for men often becomes a great ordeal, as it is not only a physiological but also a psychological problem. According to statistics, virtually all men, starting from the age of 20, have been affected by the problem of erectile dysfunction at least once. It should be noted that this problem is the most common sexual disorder in men. Hundreds of millions of men on earth suffer from erectile dysfunction. That is why the question of when to seek erectile dysfunction treatment in Delhi does not lose its urgency.

What can cause erectile dysfunction?

Different forms of the disease are distinguished based on the underlying causes. If we divide the reasons into a main group, we can distinguish between them:

Psychogenic:

  • Depression, depressed state;
  • Chronic neurosis, psychosis;
  • Stressful situations, family conflicts;
  • Drug addiction, alcoholism;
  • Fear of failure and sexual impotence.

Neurogenic:

  • Diseases of the head and spinal cord, various types of trauma (including caused by surgery);
  • Circulatory disorders of the brain;
  • multiple sclerosis;
  • Parkinson’s disease;
  • Peripheral innervation disorders (neuropathies – alcohol, drug, diabetes, etc.)

Organic:

  • Injuries;
  • Peyronie’s disease;
  • Cavernous fibrosis.

Endocrine:

  • Diabetes mellitus;
  • Prolactinoma;
  • Adrenal and thyroid dysfunction.

Vascular:

  • Combined damage to the vascular system of the genitals;
  • Disorders of microcirculation in the genitals;
  • Hypertensive disease;
  • Abnormal venous drainage of cavernous bodies.

Medicinal:

  • May occur on the background of taking psychotropic, hormonal and antidepressants.

Traumatic:

  • It is possible to develop as a result of various traumas in the genital area and the soft tissues between the genitals

What does the diagnosis of erectile dysfunction include?

Diagnosis for a variety of possible causes of the problem may include the following:

  • Ultrasound examination

– is performed to examine the blood circulation in the cavernous bodies. Revealed venous blood volume, signs of vascular atherosclerosis, erectile tissue healing, and calcinosis are also seen. After the introduction of prostaglandin (a hormone-like stimulant that is produced in the body and causes an erection), an ultrasound of the genitals is performed to determine the level of vasodilation and the pressure in the blood vessels of the genitals. The results obtained are compared with the results obtained while the penis was in an unadjusted position.

  • Neurological studies

(nerve conduction, biothesiometry).

  • Endocrinological tests

– determination of total testosterone levels (morning test) as well as free testosterone testing.

  • Specialized psychodiagnostic examination;
  • Laboratory tests

(determination of blood glucose levels and lipids);

  • Using a rigid device

, determine the volume and rigidity of the penis during sleep.

What are the methods for erectile dysfunction treatment in Delhi?

Men find it difficult to admit their own sexual problems. Due to the shy nature and delicacy of the problem, the patient often locks himself in, does not want to discuss the issue and share the feelings of failure in personal life with others, therefore, does not turn to a sexologist in Delhi at all. Such an attitude towards the problem is medically wrong and often leads to a worsening problem.

Modern medicine possesses many methods to help a patient with erectile dysfunction. In some cases of erectile dysfunction (including organic forms) it is impossible to completely cure the patient. However, even in this case, specialists can conduct symptomatic treatment to maximize the elimination of this pathology.

Consider some modern methods of erectile dysfunction treatment in Delhi:

  • There are three potentially selective phosphodiesterase inhibitors (PDE5) on the market today whose efficacy and safety in the treatment of erectile dysfunction have been demonstrated in practice. They are not the initiators of an erection, therefore treatment requires sexual stimulation to achieve an erection. Their effectiveness is defined as sufficient strength of the penis for vaginal penetration. These drugs are: sildenafil, vardenafil and tadalafil. All of these drugs have a characteristic feature that may be important for this or that patient.
  • Herbal preparations – in most cases their effectiveness in the treatment of erectile dysfunction has not been proven specifically, but taking them may improve the overall condition of the patient.
  • In case the above-mentioned drugs, in the form of pills, do not achieve the desired effect, an alternative may be to use intra-cavernous injection. Alprostadil, phentolamine and papaverine are very effective in various combinations and monotherapy. It is essential to take these medications under the supervision of a physician as incorrect treatment will most likely lead to dangerous side effects.
  • There is also an alternative to the drug – urethral administration of alprostadil. Using a special system, a small capsule containing alprostadil is inserted into the urethra. Such treatment is quite effective and acceptable for many patients.
  • Vacuum device – used in relatively elderly patients. It traps venous blood in the genitals, after which a clamping ring is fixed at the base of the penis. This approach is a very effective and safe method of treatment in elderly patients.
  • Physiotherapy
  • Surgical intervention – In case other methods of treatment do not bring the desired result, the most effective and efficient treatment approach is male prosthesis prosthesis. There are two types of prostheses: soft (semi-rigid) and inflatable (two or three-chambered). Most patients prefer a three-chamber prosthesis because the erection is more ‘natural’ during such a prosthesis.

It is extremely important to follow these simple rules to prevent erectile dysfunction or to slow its progression:

  1. Pay attention to nutrition. Fatty foods increase the risk of erectile dysfunction and vascular disease. Baked and sweet foods cause obesity and diabetes which also increases the risk of erectile dysfunction. Follow a well-balanced diet that includes the right proportions of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. In addition, the diet should contain vitamins and minerals that are essential for the body.
  2. Control blood pressure. If your blood pressure is high, be sure to seek medical help, your doctor will prescribe medication to regulate your blood pressure. Chronic hypertension and atherosclerosis increase the risk of developing erectile dysfunction.
  3. Quit using tobacco, alcohol, and drugs. It should be noted that cigarette smoking leads to the development of systemic diseases, which leads to a decrease in potency. It is almost impossible to have a healthy sex life without giving up bad habits.
  4. Do not self-medicate or take medication without your doctor’s supervision. Often the cause of erectile dysfunction is the incorrect or excessive use of medications, vitamins, biologically active supplements and similar remedies. Before taking any medication, it is necessary to consult an appropriate doctor-specialist.
  5. Try to move a lot. Lack of regular physical activity is a prerequisite for weight gain. At such times the body is less fed with oxygen, the elasticity of tissues and blood vessels decreases, and all this leads to a decrease in potency. Find time to go for a walk, jog, swim and walk to the fitness club.
  6. Learn to control the psychological load. Depression, stress and the presence of complexes can provoke sexual problems. For the most part, cases of erectile dysfunction are psychological in nature. Avoid acute conflict situations, try to fully relax.

Finally, despite the delicacy of the problem, consult Dr P K Gupta at the first signs of the problem. Erectile dysfunction treatment in Delhi at an early stage will most likely yield better results than delayed intervention.
