Hormone imbalance, particularly low testosterone, can also play a role in ED. Men can naturally increase testosterone levels by routinely engaging in weight training exercises. For aging men whose testosterone levels have dipped, hormone therapy is a safe and effective treatment option.

Nikola (NKLA) investors finally have something to cheer about.

Clinical studies suggest 10% to 20% of SARS-CoV-2-infected men have symptoms related to male genital tract dysfunction. This suggests tens of millions of men who have been infected with SARS-CoV-2, especially those who had severe COVID-19, should evaluate their sexual health and fertility to determine if additional therapies could prevent or diminish future problems, Hope said.
Erectile dysfunction or ED (also known as impotence) is when a man cannot achieve or sustain an erection for sexual intercourse. This can be: a total inability, inconsistent ability, or a tendency to sustain only brief erections.

Men, let’s cut to the chase. Do you still get morning wood? As men get older, their ability to get and maintain an erection diminishes – as well as the sensation and fulfillment of an orgasm. This is a serious matter that most don’t talk about with their friends – let alone their doctors. It is our manhood, after all. The result is unnecessary, self-inflicted shame.
Where erectile dysfunction is predominantly due to a physical cause, patients may describe a gradual onset of symptoms, which may occur across a variety of settings and different stimuli. Where the psychological component is the main factor, patients may describe a sudden onset in symptoms with erectile dysfunction varying dependent on the situation.
This book will explore alternative and much healthier methods to deal with the sensitive issue of erectile dysfunction. It’s time for men to realize that there is life beyond the pharmacy counter, beyond what our contemporary culture tells us is acceptable, and it’s time to delve into centuries-old remedies that build up, not tear down our system.
Depending on the cause of impotence, there may be other signs and symptoms present. For example, where hypogonadism (low testosterone) is the cause, patients may additionally describe reduced sex-drive (low libido), reduced need to shave facial hair and reduced muscle mass. If diabetes has caused damage to the nerve or blood supply to the penis, patients may also describe other symptoms suggestive of damage to other blood vessels or nerves, such as numbness and tingling of the feet.
Erectile dysfunction is a type of sexual dysfunction that’s characterized by the inability to develop or sustain a penile erection. Normally, an erection occurs when blood vessels in the penis relax and open up, allowing blood to rush through and fill the area. The blood is then trapped because of the added pressure, which causes an erection. An erection is reversed when the muscles in the penis begin to contract, which stops the inflow of blood and pressure.
“This is really going to make a difference for guys who need [Viagra],” says Nachum Katlowitz, MD, the director of urology at Staten Island University Hospital in Staten Island, New York. “Right now, the biggest barriers for treatment are that the pills are expensive and that insurance companies don’t want to pay for them.”
Erectile dysfunction is the inability to either achieve or maintain an erection. This may happen either occasionally or regularly, but may occur only in certain situations depending on the cause (i.e. patients may still have early morning erections).
A pre-print, non-peer-reviewed study in the journal Northwestern Medicine reveals that "multiple tissues of the male genital tract can be infected with SARS-CoV-2," and the finding is based on PET scans of COVID-infected rhesus macaques. (The primates have been found to have similar disease progression to humans when infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and are therefore used as study subjects.) Researchers say they expected mostly to find the virus present in the upper nose and brain area — which would be the reason that COVID patients often lose their sense of taste or smell. But they found it also present in 10 to 20 percent of male subjects' genitals — specifically in the prostate, the vasculature of testicles, the penis and the testicles.

How common is impotence? According to findings from several studies, including “The Massachusetts Male Aging Study,” overall prevalence for men between 40–70 years old is around 52 percent (or around 30 percent of all men between 18–60 years old). That’s right — nearly half of all men over 40 experience erectile dysfunction symptoms at some point. Not surprisingly, research demonstrates that impotence is increasingly prevalent with age. Around 40 percent of men in their 40s experience sexual dysfunction. Up to 70 percent of men in their 70s experience ED. (1) Every year more than 617,000 new cases of impotence occur in the United States alone.
