Impotency or Erectile Dysfunction is fairly common in men. Especially men after the age of 50 are more prone to suffer from erectile dysfunction.

But before getting into the treatment, do you know what exactly impotency is?
Impotency is a condition that consistently affects a person’s ability to achieve or maintain an erection, or ability to achieve ejaculation. It’s a form of erectile dysfunction (ED). Simply put, impotency is a man’s inability to achieve an erection and reach orgasm.

The risk of impotency increases with age, but several factors contribute to impotency and most of them are lifestyle-related.

Depression, Anxiety, Stress play a major role in increasing the risk of impotency in men. Loss of hope and other emotional disorders will affect a man’s ability to reach the excitement level needed for sex.

Performance anxiety can also be a cause of impotency. Fear does things to people. If a man had a bad time achieving an erection in the past, his fear of not being able to achieve an erection in the future can greatly affect his sex life.

Also, alcohol and drug abuse seriously affect your performance and potency. Alcohol is widely known to cause erectile dysfunction in men since it affects the ability to reach an erection.

But these days medical science is so ahead that everything is possible, science has different branches and among them, Andrology is the one and an andrologist is a key to solve your all problem efficiently.

So, in this case, you must consult a doctor, such as a urologist, diagnoses erectile dysfunction (ED) with a medical and sexual history, and mental health and physical exam. You may find it difficult to talk with a health care professional about ED. However, remember that a healthy sex life is part of a healthy life. The more your doctor knows about you, the more likely he or she can help treat your condition.

Given below are the treatments by the Andrologist:

Medical and sexual history
Taking a medical and sexual history is one of the first things a doctor will do to help diagnose ED. He or she will ask you to provide information, such as
• how you would rate your confidence that you can get and keep an erection
• how often your penis is firm enough for intercourse when you have erections from sexual stimulation
• how often you can maintain an erection during sexual intercourse
• how often you find sexual intercourse satisfying
• if you have an erection when you wake up in the morning
• how you would rate your level of sexual desire
• how often you’re able to climax, or orgasm, and ejaculate
• any surgeries or treatments that may have damaged your nerves or blood vessels near the penis
• any prescription or over-the-counter medicines you take
• if you use illegal drugs, drink alcohol, or smoke

This information will help the urologist understand your ED problem. The medical history can reveal diseases and treatments that lead to ED. Reviewing your sexual activity can help your doctor diagnose problems with sexual desire, erection, climax, or ejaculation.
