Common Questions about Erectile Dysfunction

1. What causes Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction can have many causes, both mental and physical. Sexual arousal in men, is a complex process that involves the brain, hormones, blood vessels, nerves, muscles, emotions, etc. If there is a problem in any of these areas, it can result in erectile dysfunction.

2. Is erectile dysfunction normal?

While erectile dysfunction is common, it is NOT normal, and it is not something you have to accept. It is also not something you should be ashamed of. I truly care about helping restore this important aspect of your life. 

3. What medical conditions can lead to erectile dysfunction?

Increasing age, medical conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure, spinal cord injury, pelvic surgery, cancer treatment, etc. can all lead to erectile dysfunction. There are two cylinders of a sponge-like tissue that fill with blood during an erection, each called a Corpus Cavernosum. These cylinders get very hard and stiff during a normal erection. If the blood flow into the Corpus is poor or if the valves that are supposed to keep the blood in the Corpus are defective, the penis will not get fully hard.
