7 Factors That Can Affect Erections

An erection is a complex process that includes hormones, nerves, and your psychological and physical health. An imbalance anywhere could lead to erectile problems, including Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Below is a list of factors we at Preferred Men’s Medical Group have found to impact men’s ability to gain and maintain an erection.

Alcohol

Too much alcohol leads to damage to your liver, brain, and testicles – the producer of testosterone. The heavier the drinking and the longer the period, the more significant the impact on your sexual health.

Blood Pressure and the Medication That Treats it

Higher blood pressure damages your body’s blood vessels, including those necessary for an erection. What is worse, some medication used to treat elevated blood pressure can cause additional problems for experiencing and maintaining an erection.

Body Weight

Extra weight can contribute to many risk factors that impact erections. Additional weight can strain your heart and contribute to high blood pressure, diabetes, and hormonal shifts.

Depression and the Medications That Treat it

Depression and other mood effective complications lead to issues with erections. As with blood pressure, the medications most often used to treat depression impact erections and libido.

Exercise

All forms of exercise are important for overall health, blood flow, heart maintenance, and decrease the chance of erectile dysfunction (ED).

Nutrition

The more antioxidant-rich foods, including fresh fruits and vegetables, the better. Animal fats in beef and dairy increase the chance for ED complications.

Sleep Apnea

Researchers have correlated sleep disorders such as sleep apnea with ED. Check with a medical professional about having a sleep study.
