Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the most common male sexual dysfunction, which refers to the penis can not achieve or maintain enough erection to complete a satisfactory sexual life. The course of the disease is more than three months. Mental factors mostly cause the etiology of erectile dysfunction, but other diseases cause a considerable part of erectile dysfunction.

The common conditions that can lead to male erectile dysfunction are as follows:

1. Nervous system diseases: generally, the nerve center controls the brain activity, and the occurrence of nervous system diseases can cause erectile dysfunction. It exists spinal cord injury, tumor, etc., and there is a failure in conductive excitation. For example, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, Parkinson's disease, spinal cord tumor, multiple myelosclerosis, electric shock therapy, tuberculosis of the spinal cord, temporal lobe disease, spina bifida and other brain and spinal cord diseases, tetrahedral neuritis can lead to erectile dysfunction in varying degrees.

2. Internal chronic diseases: studies have shown that about 40% to 60% of diabetic patients are prone to erectile dysfunction, hypertension, and heart disease patients have a high probability of erectile dysfunction. The incidence rate of these "rich diseases" is very high among young white-collar workers and shows a younger trend. These diseases are eroding the health of white-collar workers, and they also quietly affect male sex life.

3. Reproductive system diseases: there are many diseases in the male reproductive organs, which can cause erectile dysfunction, such as orchitis, epididymitis, and prostatitis. These reproductive system diseases can lead to the decline of androgen level in the body, dysplasia, or external genitalia dysplasia, and the sexual function will gradually decline or disappear.

For erectile dysfunction caused by these reproductive system diseases, especially orchitis, epididymitis, and prostatitis, herbal medicine's treatment effect is pronounced, such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. Its main advantage is to treat people as a whole, eliminate symptoms, and eliminate the cause. Besides, it can treat the affected area, prevent the disease's further spread, and affect the entire reproductive system.

4. Endocrine system diseases: some diseases, such as diabetes, pituitary tumor, hypercortisolism, hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism, insufficiency of the adrenal cortex, etc., can interfere with the physiological balance of the hypothalamic pituitary gonadal axis.

Many men in the emergence of erectile dysfunction, taking into account the face problem, most will choose to take medicine, making the disease more and more serious. Therefore, if the occurrence of symptoms, it is recommended that men should go to the hospital for examination, clear reasons, and then active treatment.

Besides treatment, the prevention of ED is also essential.

Keep a good attitude

It is the most important thing. Men must keep the right attitude. If they have problems in the sexual relationship, don't keep trying. They can rest for a few days and try again when they are in a good mood. Otherwise, constant trying may cause many problems, such as anxiety, fear, and other pressures.

Strengthen exercise

A healthy body is the strong backing of our country. Men usually can exercise pelvic muscles and sphincters to enhance the strength of erection and prolonging erection time. They can also do more aerobic exercise, such as jogging, swimming, supine ups, push-ups, and strength exercise.

Have a reasonable diet

Whether a couple can live a happy life depends mainly on men. Therefore, men should pay attention to dietary balance and ensure the regular intake of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and correct malnutrition or excess. It is one of the necessities for men to maintain hardness and thoroughly enjoy sex life.

Combining work with rest

Working day and night will lead to memory loss, muscle soreness, dizziness, headache, sleep disorders, irritability, irritability, neurasthenia, seriously affect sex quality.

Erectile dysfunction patients do not need to worry too much. As long as they actively cooperate with the treatment, straighten out the mentality, they will recover. At the same time, prevention is also essential, such as diet, rest, and exercise should be regular.
