Considered to be a medical condition, impotence or erectile dysfunction is characterized by the inability of the male organ to become fully erect. About 50 percent of the entire male population has experienced it. Often embarrassing, this condition can be treated if the cause is determined. Generally, there are two causes of impotence: physiological and psychological.

Since the male organ becomes engorged when erect, impotence may possibly caused by a blockage in the blood flow. A qualified medical practitioner would probably subject you to numerous diagnostic tests to pinpoint exactly where the blockage is. There are also instances when the impotence is caused by a more serious health problem like diabetes or even an undetected injury. It is known that illnesses like alcoholism and multiple sclerosis can cause impotence. Possible treatments include medication or surgery.

When a male has low self-esteem or anxiety, it could manifest as impotence. Other possible causes include being stressed, pressured or frustrated in either personal or work life. Because the body feels tired or tensed, the sexual performance becomes affected. Some males would take this lightly while some consider it humiliating and thus, worsen the condition.

Impotence caused by psychological reasons can be treated effectively by either psychotherapy or hypnotherapy. Psychotherapy would involve counseling to unearth the reason behind the inability to perform sexually. If the man becomes depressed because of this condition, he would be given anti-depressants as well. This treatment is effective if the patient would really be committed to attending each session. Understandably, psychotherapy can be a bit pricier.

Hypnotherapy, although relatively a new method, has been found to be effective in treating anxiety, phobias and addictions. Basically a person would be hypnotized t gain access to his subconscious. The hypnotist would then make suggestions that target the anxiety. It is possible that after one session, you could regain your erection. On the average, it takes about three to five sessions for the therapy to be effective.

Impotence is not something you should be embarrassed about. It is normal especially if you are very tired or have been thinking of a lot of things. Some men are harsh on themselves and lose interest in sex altogether to avoid repeating such situation. This is even unhealthier than ignoring the problem. Neither of these would help you regain a normal life and it could even lead you to depression. You should take responsibility and seek help at once.
