WHY DO PEOPLE EXPERIENCE ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION?
There’s many reasons that people experience erectile dysfunction and it can be caused by a combination of things. Most commonly, people experience trouble getting an erection:
- After drinking or taking drugs
- Prescribed medication
- Mood – feeling low, anxious or stressed can have a huge impact
- Medical conditions like diabetes
If you’re experiencing erectile dysfunction and you’re not sure why, make an appointment with your GP. They won’t judge you, but will probably ask some questions about your lifestyle and carry out some tests to find out more.
Once you’ve chatted to a doctor, they’ll be able to help you find a solution to your erectile dysfunction – this could be medication, meditation or changes to your lifestyle. Over the counter options are also available, but before you take these you should ensure there is not a medical issue that needs to be investigated.
