Three Signs You May Have Erectile Dysfunction

Featured Image

When you think of erectile dysfunction (ED), you may imagine the complete inability to get an erection. While that is certainly one symptom of ED, there are many other potential signs and symptoms that could point to ED that may not be quite as obvious. No matter what level of ED you may be experiencing, our caring team at Kasraeian Urology is here to help you understand your options for restoring or improving your sexual function. Here, Drs. Ahmad and Ali Kasraeian outline three common male sexual health concerns that may be signs of ED in Jacksonville, FL.

How do I know if I have ED?

In some cases, men may begin to have trouble achieving an erection across the board — meaning in all situations, while other men may only experience difficulty with erections at certain times. Not only that, but erectile dysfunction may cause some men to be unable to get an erection, though other men may achieve partial erections. In all these cases, ED may be the cause of the man's symptoms. Three ED signs and symptoms to keep an eye out for include:

1. Weak erections

Even if you can still achieve an erection, you may find that your erections are not as firm as they used to be and/or not adequate for sexual activity, including vaginal penetration.

2. Loss of erections

In some cases, ED may cause a man to lose his ability to achieve an erection.

3. Inconsistent ability to achieve or maintain an erection

ED can also lead to difficulty with spontaneous erections occasionally, though not all the time, as well as the early loss of an erection.

Oftentimes, men with ED experience additional sexual dysfunction problems as well, including difficulty reaching orgasm, penile curvature, and others.

What causes ED?

There are a variety of factors that can contribute to ED, including:

  • Age
  • Previous urologic surgery or procedure
  • Trauma or injury
  • Certain medical conditions, including cardiovascular disease
  • Dietary and lifestyle factors
  • Psychological stress

For many men, ED is a multi-factorial condition, meaning there are several factors that may be simultaneously contributing to the person's symptoms.

How is ED treated?
