Men all hope to perform better during their sexual life, but if they suffer from impotence, this hope will be dashed. So what better way to stay away from impotence? Below is an introduction to the causes of impotence for everyone to understand.
Age is an indirect high risk factor closely related to impotence. As age increases, men are more likely to develop erectile dysfunction. According to foreign reports, the prevalence of erectile dysfunction in men aged 20 to 30 years is 7%, and the prevalence of erectile dysfunction in men aged 70 to 79 years is 57%.
Caused by some diseases
"Mainly diseases of the prostate and penis, such as prostatitis, balanitis, gonococcal prostatitis, non gonorrhea, and other infectious diseases. These diseases cause dysfunction, resulting in a probability of male impotence of over 40%.". In addition, cardiovascular disease, endocrine disease, chronic renal insufficiency, diabetes, ulcer disease and other diseases may also cause impotence.
Endocrine system lesions
Endocrine system diseases are another cause of impotence. Endocrine diseases have a wide range of names, including pituitary damage, hypophysis, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, Cushing's syndrome and other common diseases that cause impotence. In addition, there are also hypothyroidism, craniopharyngioma, orchioidosis, infantile disease, hyperprolactinemia, oral estrogen, and feminized stromal cell testicular tumors.
Such as smoking, alcohol abuse, and drug abuse, these three unhealthy lifestyles seriously affect male sexual function. Some studies have shown that the prevalence of erectile dysfunction among heroin addicts is as high as 32.2%. In addition, emotional disharmony between couples can also cause impotence, as most male impotence manifests as mental impotence, which is directly related to marital disharmony. "If a husband and wife appear to be apart from each other, share different dreams, lack emotional communication, distrust each other, and create a sense of disgust, it is bound to lead to emotional discord, which affects the erection of the penis, leading to impotence.".
Due to urogenital diseases
Diseases of the male urinary and reproductive organs are closely related to impotence, such as cystectomy, perineal prostatectomy, cavernous sclerosis of the penis, phimosis, prostatitis, urethritis, cryptorchidism, and cryptorchidism, which can also cause impotence. Secondly, brain and spinal cord diseases such as lateral sclerosis, muscle atrophy, myasthenia gravis, Parkinson's disease, spinal cord tumors, multiple myelosclerosis, and peripheral neuritis can also lead to impotence to varying degrees.
