Maybe this has already happened to you. No need to worry, this is a common problem in men. If you have not talked to your doctor, it is time to do so. If you want to know more about penis health, your doctor will give you “instructions”.
But first here are some things to know. Erection is a physiological phenomenon in men with a complex relationship of physiological, nervous, vascular, and endocrine factors. There are three types of erections. The first is caused by sexual stimulation or an erection caused by physical contact.
The second is caused by sexual arousal such as visual or sound, often a simple imagination. The third is the so-called night erection that comes when you are asleep and when you are in a deep REM phase. Interestingly, although this type can be a source of shame for some, morning glory is often a sign of a healthy and “happy” penis.
In addition to the three types of erections, there are three stages. The first stage is the stimulus, the second is when the parasympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system occurs on stage causing an increase in the level of nitric oxide which acts as a dilator of blood vessels, here the arteries dilate while simultaneously compressing the muscles and the last stage when the penis returns to normal size.
The most common causes of erectile dysfunction are stress, anxiety, and depression. After these psychological states, the next cause of dysfunction is a problem with the anatomy of the organ itself. Lifestyle can greatly help or harm the function of the organ.
For example, smoking harms the body because cigarette toxins damage the blood vessels in the penis. A modest amount of alcohol can help relax and loosen inhibitions, while too much alcohol is associated with difficulty getting an erection. Also, aerobics that helps maintain vascular health helps improve erections. But do not forget that you will get the best help if you go to a professional doctor.
