Erectile dysfunction, or ED, is a medical term that medical professionals use to describe a condition that makes it difficult or impossible to get an erection. Any man can get ED, and many in the Laguna Niguel, CA area have experienced it at least once. Approximately two-thirds of all men over the age of 50 have ED, and there are some causes.

Causes of ED

There are several things that can cause erectile dysfunction. They range from the very simple, such as too much alcohol consumption, to a more serious cause, such as cancer. In many cases, a man finds that his ED is caused by more than one factor.

Generally, causes fall into three categories: organic, psychogenic, and a mix of the two. Examples of an organic cause of ED include cancer, diabetes, renal failure, hypertension, or neurological injuries. Many men also have psychological causes. Often these causes lead to the delayed release, painful intercourse, and in severe cases, total impotence. Depression, anxiety, or feelings like guilt can also cause ED. Men who might have had bad sexual experiences also might have ED due to remembering these incidents.


There are some ED therapy options. Some men might consider pills for their erectile dysfunction. Though pills work well for many men, they are not very convenient. For instance, you have to take them when you want to get an erection and then might have to wait for them to work. There are other therapies that do more, however, such as shockwave therapy. This drug-free treatment method can permanently improve a man’s ED and can be done in just a couple of short sessions.
