ED and premature ejaculation are commonly confused with each other- but one proven treatment can help you address both issues. 

ED Treatment Phoenix AZPremature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction are two commonly used terms that men use to describe sexual dysfunction they may be experiencing. Premature ejaculation, most commonly, involves more psychological factors such as anxiety and chronic masturbation, while ED has more physiologic causes. 

While these conditions both involve difficulty having intercourse, they both have separate meanings.

It is important to understand the difference in order to address the problems you are experiencing properly.

Sexual dysfunction will affect one in every three men at some point in their lives. In order to 

properly address the problem, it is important to understand the difference between having a medically-induced case of erectile dysfunction or a more common case of premature ejaculation. 

While the difference is slight, one may be cured by simple means while the other may require a more thorough diagnosis and treatment such as GAINSWave from a specialist in the Phoenix area. 

Premature ejaculation may be a result of anxiety, nerves, or other underlying psychological causes. Erectile dysfunction, on the other hand, maybe remedied through revolutionary new treatments such as GAINSWave soundwave therapy. In order to better understand this difference, it is easier to first understand what common issues cause sexual dysfunction for most men in Phoenix. 

What Causes Sexual Dysfunction?

Sexual dysfunction can have many different faces, both from a physical and mental standpoint. One of the most common causes of sexual dysfunction is anxiety and other psychological barriers that may be preventing you from engaging in intercourse. 

Normal erections occur due to the activation of the sympathetic nervous system, triggering chemicals throughout the body that increase blood pressure and heart rate. This process increases the amount of available blood to support your erection. 

When sexual anxiety is present, the parasympathetic nervous system is also activated. This action is supposed to suppress the various stimulations that the sympathetic nervous system is supposed to be activating. This includes decreased heart rate and diversion of blood flow to the stomach rather than peripheral organs. 

All forms of sexual dysfunction involve hindering the body’s ability to provide blood flow to the penis. 

Erectile Dysfunction vs. Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is hard to differentiate from ED. Erectile dysfunction is a broader condition that is caused by a combination of poor health factors that are leading to restricted blood flow – and often. Premature ejaculation is considered to be a form of erectile dysfunction

Premature ejaculation, on the other hand, is simply the inability to last longer than a few minutes during sex. PE is commonly diagnosed as a psychological condition as a result of either overly frequent masturbation or a tight pelvic floor. Talking to a sex therapist as well as engaging in pelvic floor exercises are some of the most efficient ways of handling PE. 

Erectile dysfunction, on the other hand, can have much more complex causes. While similar to PE, ED can be characterized as both being unable to have normal sexual stamina as well as being unable to achieve an erection in the first place.

Any health factor that contributes to decreased blood flow or neural stimulation can cause ED. Diabetes, heart diseases, atherosclerosis, and other conditions in combination with a naturally decreasing amount of hormones as we age can all contribute to having more difficulty achieving an erection. 

If you are a man over the age of 30, chances are you are not performing as well sexually as you did in your 20s. To help you feel better, over 50% of men experience some degree of erectile dysfunction in their lifetime due to stress, diet, or medical concerns related to aging.

Aging and Sexual Health

Erections are an important part of a man’s sexual health. Most men in Phoenix suffering from decreased erectile performance, or ED, have clogged or hardened blood vessels in the penis, resulting in restricted blood flow. 
ED Treatment 202These clogged arteries are unable to supply the tissues of the penis with the blood necessary to activate a full, healthy erection. Men may also notice symptoms such as decreased hardness, sensitivity, and the ability to perform when experiencing these difficulties. 

50% of men ages 40 to 70 are suffering from symptoms of erectile dysfunction, and even men in their 30s are reporting decreased erectile function or troubles in the bedroom of some kind.

The leading cause of erectile dysfunction is poor blood flow to the penis due to plaque, stress, or hardened arteries. 

These factors cause softer erections, decreased sensitivity, an inability to achieve an erection and even unsustained blood flow that can lead to men prematurely losing their erections during sex.
