How A Doctor Will Discover The Solution To Your Impotency

Jul 1, 2008
For any man who is unfortunate to suffer from impotency, it is important to understand that the effects can not only be physical but can create difficult psychological problems as well. It is estimated that over 10 million American men suffer from impotency and so this is a problem that many of us will suffer from at some point in our lives.

Doctors refer to the condition as Erectile Dysfunction and this is basically the inability to form an erection for sexual function. The condition can affect men of any age but the causes for the different age groups can often vary. For males in the 20-35 age group the cause is often psychological and can be linked to relationship problems. For older men the cause is usually related to a physical condition or disease.

It is recognized that erectile dysfunction can be a very embarrassing condition and many men do not want to discuss the problem with their partners or the doctor. This is a mistake as you should not suffer the problem alone. In fact discussing impotency can certainly help to resolve it. This article seeks to explain some of the methods that a doctor will use in order to identify some of the common causes of impotency and so hopefully if you suffer from the condition you will be able to address it as quickly as possible.

When speaking to the doctor about your impotence, the first thing that they will assess is your medical history. By doing this the doctor can eliminate possible environmental factors from your past and past activities such as drug use, smoking, etc.

The doctor will also need to carry out a physical examination in order to fully understand the problem. Depending upon the symptoms displayed the root of the impotency can be ascertained. Some example causes that can be discovered here include a lack of response when the penis is touched. This can indicate a nervous system problem. If the penis bends when erect this can indicate Peyronie's disease.

Afterwards you can expect the doctor to carry out a series of laboratory tests. There are likely to be blood and urine tests and possibly others. These tests will help to determine the cause of the impotency. For example a test to determine the level of testosterone can indicate problems with the endocrine system. Some doctors, though not all will suggest that you ask your partner to check if involuntary erections occur during sleep. This can help to rule out any physical causes of impotence.

Following on from this, if the source of the problem has not been identified then you can expect the doctor to look for psychology factors. Counseling sessions are recommended and can include your partner. By analyzing what each person's expectations in the relationship are and addressing subsequent pressures can help to identify the cause. Emotional stress can be a key and frequent cause of impotency in men. Feelings of guilt, anxiety, nervousness and low self-esteem are major contributions to the condition.

With this in mind, it is very important to consider professional help if you recognize that you have a problem with impotency. It is nothing to be ashamed of and if you should seek the correct advice and hopefully the solution may not require all that much time or effort.
