Erectile Dysfunction (Istirkha-e- Qazeeb)


Erectile Dysfunction (Istirkha-e- Qazeeb) a persistent failure or a repeated inability to achieve or sustain an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse in which a man cannot achieve or maintain an erection well enough to have satisfying sex  resultigng in loss of interest and desire for sexual activity (libido) and even reaching an Ejaculation and orgasm.

Despite growing awareness, many people, particularly in India, are still unclear about erectile dysfunction. It is a widespread and very common problem particularly in India. Erectile dysfunction (performance anxiety) is not about sexual pleasure, it is about shame.

It is also a very emotional and sensitive topic to discuss. Most men may not openly talk about their distressing erection problems. Experiencing ED can be upsetting. But the more you know, the better off you will be.

Erectile Dysfunction (Istirkha-e- Qazeeb) can hit any man, of any age, but of course, is much more prevalent among older men. Once you hit forty, you’re increasingly likely to suffer from ED. It’s important to understand, however, that not every case of sexual dysfunction is an ED problem.

Achieving a sustained erection is a complex process involving the brain, nerves, hormones, muscles and even blood circulation. Getting and maintaining an erection requires a surprising amount of things to go right. You have to get aroused, and then pass that signal from your brain, through your nerves and hormones, to your blood vessels and muscles before an erection can even happen. If something interferes with this process, it may result in Erectile Dysfunction.

Relationship problems often complicate erectile dysfunction. Improving your relationship may be part of the solution. It may be a good idea to get counselling together from a sex therapist or a medical specialist.
