What is impotence?

Impotence is a kind of sexual disorder, consisting of the inability to have intercourse as a result of physical or mental problems. The two most common ailments in the context of impotence concern erectile dysfunction or lack of erection and ejaculation problems, i.e. ejaculation. On the other hand, temporary and short-term erectile dysfunction is something very common and natural, often occurring in the face of high stress or fatigue. However, they are not qualified as impotence, which is a disorder lasting for a longer period of time.

What is impotence - definition

Impotence is usually associated with poor blood flow. Means no full erection or inability to maintain it during the sexual act. A significant proportion of cases affect men between the ages of 40 and 70. This disorder also leads to many psychological problems. Potency is identified with masculinity, so in the face of permanent erection problems, men lose confidence and struggle with shame. Therefore, they completely give up physical activity, often in order to avoid situations that compromise their perspective.

Where do potency problems come from?

Most frequently this problem is encountered in men around the age of fifty. However, this is not a rule, as this disorder also affects younger men. All the more so, according to research, the highest sexual activity in men is between 25 and 27 years of age, and in many cases after crossing this limit, the appetite for sex decreases. It also involves external factors, changing the value system, transforming the physical drive into other emotions and a greater sexual awareness that allows for a better use of physical energy. In the case of impotence, we can also talk about primary and secondary impotence. In many cases the reason is bad blood circulation, which leads to an improper blood supply to the penis, which makes it impossible to maintain an erection. Unfortunately, men often treat this problem as a natural turn of events related to age and give up sexual activity.

Two impotence substrates

Due to the background of impotence, we can talk about psychological and biological factors. The first one is mainly due to anxiety or excessive stress. Then the main reasons for impotence are complexes, fear of conception, sinfulness, and trauma from childhood or earlier stages of adult life. Biologically, diabetes, heart disease, cardiovascular disease, age, alcohol or drug abuse can most often lead to impotence. Other causes include hormonal problems, including insufficient testosterone levels, which can lead to a reduction in sexual desire. Also, taking some drugs, including antidepressants or neuroleptics, may cause temporary disturbances with potency.
