last, a miracle cure
for impotence. Talking.
It's true. Just talk about
it. To your doctor. To your partner. To, if possible,
your friend. Because impotence, or erectile dysfunction,
is so common, one man in ten is affected. And
the cure begins with your being open about it.
It needs understanding, and it's a actually treatable.
And often, the causes are neither frightening
Performance anxiety is the most common. Causes
can be medical, surgical or physiological. Diabetes
(up to 50% of diabetic men suffer from impotence).
Ageing (sexual activity decline after 50). Hereditary,
neurological or endocrinal conditions. Fractured
pelvis, ruptured urethra, genital malformations.
Depression, alcoholism, schizophrenia, drug abuse,
tranquilizers, antidepressants, anti-hypertensives.
Overcome embarrassment and meet your doctor.
Specific treatment depends on the diagnosis. Pills,
penile medication, hormone replacement. Surgical
implants. Vascular surgery. Counseling, both marital
and sexual, is important, since an emotional or
relationship problem can contribute to the problems.
The first and most important step is, of course
to begin to talk to your doctor. Do it today.
