According to sexologists, potency is largely dependent on mood and self-esteem. People with depression are more likely to experience sexual dysfunctions. The drive for women and men is based on various factors and issues, both of which are very complex. What factors contribute to the weakening of the potency? What determines their appearance?
Research has shown that almost 85% of all erectile dysfunctions have their origin in physical conditions, while only 10% of cases concern psychological ailments. It happens, of course, that the problem is so complex that it has both physical and psychological causes. In men, the weakening of potency is manifested by the lack of ability to have sexual intercourse for pleasure. Sexual desire in women changes with age. During its development, libido reaches its highest level.
The physical causes of the weakening of the potency are..:
- Diabetes mellitus - a metabolic disease that can manifest itself in the form of various disorders, including sexual disorders. Diabetes in men results in the development of vascular impotence and autonomic neuropathy type. Nearly 75% of diabetics have erectile dysfunction. Diabetes can also lead to other sexual impairments such as spermatogenesis, loss of libido and so on.
- Hormonal disorders - the hormonal system plays a significant role in the proper functioning of the sexual system. It is also responsible for the proper production of testosterone. It is the most important male hormone, which affects the sensitization of sexual centers, which are located in the nervous system. They condition proper excitability of erogenous zones. Insufficient testosterone contributes to the development of impotence. In this case, it is possible to treat by balancing the hormonal balance of the body by administering appropriate doses of hormone.
- Heart and circulatory system diseases - one of the most common disorders that affect the weakening of the libido. Chronic diseases, i.e.: increased blood pressure, high cholesterol level, atherosclerosis, hypothyroidism of the heart muscle, affect erectile dysfunction. The obstruction of some blood vessels leads to a gradual impotence. It is estimated that vascular disease is the most common physical cause of erectile dysfunction.
- Neurological diseases - any damage to the sympathetic system of the nervous system may result in a lack of proper sexual drive. Neurological diseases are also those of neurogenic character, i.e.: spinal cord tumors, heavy metal poisoning, alcoholism, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, etc.
- Addictions - all kinds of drugs, such as alcohol, drugs and nicotine, are very common causes of sexual disorders. The risk of morbidity is much higher in men than in women. It is estimated that 50-85% of men addicted to alcohol have libido disorders. In the case of drugs, sexual disorders occur in 90% of people. Nicotine, which can lead to a decrease in semen volume, sperm count, density and morphological changes, has a similar effect.
- Use of drugs - many drugs, not only psychotropic, addictive or steroidal, may cause erectile dysfunction. Their influence is visible through reduced libido and noticeable pain. The use of steroid drugs has a strong influence on the formation of pathological changes in blood vessels. These changes contribute to vascular impotence.
