There are a few things to understand before you think that erectile dysfunction can be cured: it cannot. The reason why erectile dysfunction is incurable is because it is a symptom, the result of some other medical or psychological issue that needs to be addressed in order to stop the side effects – namely, erectile dysfunction. The reality of erectile dysfunction is the limited to nonexistent blood flow into the lower extremities that do not allow enough blood to flow through the penis blood vessels in order to achieve an erection that is normal for sexual activities.

Erectile dysfunction is not a normal part of the aging process in men. While many men report to having an isolated event where they were unable to achieve an erection for various reasons, erectile dysfunction is a symptom that is associated with the vascular system and is a constant after a trigger event happens.

It is important to know while some doctors can prescribe these medications, one must be upfront with the doctor and explain other factors that led to the impotence. Often men will not address the problem because they feel emasculated or embarrassed by the inability to achieve an erect. It is important to understand that certain health problems will present themselves in various ways, and erectile dysfunction is an effect of something more extreme going on inside the body.
