What are the causes of loss of erection?
There are many different underlying causes of loss of erection which might explain why it can affect me of all ages:-

  • High blood pressure or hypertension
  • Diabetes Mellitus
  • Anxiety
  • Depression and low mood
  • Stress
  • Drinking too much alcohol

The symptoms of erectile problems are the inability to either create or maintain an erection.  From that point of view, diagnosis is obvious but it is important to find out the underlying cause as this can impact on treatment.  Fortunately, there are medicines available for erectile dysfunction but they can impact on other health issues or medication you may be on for other conditions which it is why it is always important to consult your doctor or healthcare professional first.

Treatment for weak erection
Treatments can involve medicines like Viagra for erectile dysfunction but lifestyle changes can be important as well.  Cutting down on alcohol, getting fit, losing weight – these are all things which will boost your libido and improve men's sexual health as well as their overall health.  Mental and psychological problems can be tackled with couples’ counselling, wellbeing and sometimes supportive drug intervention.

Medicines to treat erectile dysfunction include Sildenafil also sold as Viagra, Tadalfil known by the brand name, Cialis and Vardenafil which is sold under the moniker, Levitra.  It is important to have a health evaluation before taking any of these medicines as there can be serious implications if you use ED medicines in combination with other drugs and/or certain medical conditions.  Your GP can also recommend which medicine is likely to suit best and appropriate dosage.
