About 4 men aged 50 years experiencing erectile dysfunction, while nearly half of men aged 75 years and over experiencing similar symptoms. But the sluggish condition of the penis may also occur at younger ages due to these factors.
Here are seven confounding variables that may increase the risk of sluggish Mr. P
1. Mengongumsi drug used to treat hair loss or prostate enlargement
Drugs such as finasteride and dutasteride are used to treat hair loss and prostate enlargement in men.
Unfortunately, these drugs can produce side effects such as erectile dysfunction and loss of libido in men. According to research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
“This drug works by reducing the amount of dihydrotestosterone in the blood flowing,” said Dr. Andrew Kramer, surgeons and ED at the University of Maryland Medical Center. Dihydrotestosterone is the male sex hormone that helps maintain sex drive.

“Gum disease can be caused by a problem with blood flow in the gums. There is a possibility that the person also has blood flow problems in other parts of her body like a penis,” said Dr. Bruce Kava, chairman of urology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
3. More Familiar With Friends Wife than Husband Husband Alone
Psychological factors are important in sexual performance. But the surprising thing was the wife who spends more time with male friends of the husband than by her own husband can lead to increased risk of erectile dysfunction.
According to research published in the American Journal of Sociology.
The researchers surveyed more than 3,000 men aged 57-85 years and found that men with their female partner is too close to his friends as much as 92 percent more have difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection.
According to the researchers, this might be due to social perception in young and middle-aged men are considered masculine if you have lots of friends.
But for men in their 70s and 80s, this presumption disappears. The old man would rather spend time with fewer people and a wife who was more familiar with my friends husband husband threatened masculinity.
The Scythians or armored horsemen in Iran already know the relationship between horse riding and impotence since the 9th century BC. It turns out that a similar modern activities such as cycling over long distances, can also increase the risk of erectile dysfunction.
A review of the article published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine in 2005 found that 4 percent of male cyclists who spent a minimum of three hours per week in the saddle will experience erectile dysfunction from moderate to severe degree. Meanwhile, only about 1 percent of runners at the same age who experience erectile dysfunction.
“When sitting on a bicycle saddle, pegowes weight resting on the nerves and blood vessels carrying blood to the penis. Over time, these vessels can become damaged, causing decreased blood flow to the penis and the risk of erectile dysfunction,” Kava said.
Men with diabetes are two to three times more likely to experience erectile dysfunction than healthy men, according to the National Institutes of Health in the U.S.. Setting a poor blood sugar can damage nerves and small blood vessels that control erections and blood flow to the penis.
6. High Blood Pressure
Blood vessels and healthy blood flow is important to achieve and maintain an erection. Uncontrolled hypertension can damage blood vessels, making it less elastic and less able to transport the blood quickly.
Unfortunately, some medications used to treat high blood pressure, such as beta blockers and diuretics, may also increase the risk of erectile dysfunction.

Around 61 percent of people with major depression experience sexual problems, according to the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. Depression not only reduce the interest to engage in sex.
“There is a biochemical components in patients with depression that can make sufferers difficult to achieve and maintain an erection. These chemicals help brain cells communicate to stimulate blood flow to the penis. And it is not able to perform and enjoy sex can aggravate symptoms of depression,” says Kava.
Some antidepressants such as reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) can cause sexual problems as well. Nearly half of men and women who use SSRIs experience sexual dysfunction, according to the National Institute of Mental Health.
In men, this could mean experiencing erectile dysfunction, loss of libido, and ejaculation is delayed.
