What is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile Dysfunction also known as ED or “male impotence” is a sexual dysfunction characterized by the inability to get to develop or maintain an erection of the penis firm enough for sexual intercourse. ED can be a total inability to achieve an erection, an inconsistent ability to do so, or a tendency to sustain only brief erections.

What are the causes of Erectile Dysfunction?
ED usually has a physical cause. The most important causes are cardiovascular disease, diabetes, injury, neurological problems, hormonal insufficiencies, or side effects of drugs. Any disorder that causes injury to the nerves or impairs blood flow in the penis has the potential to cause Erectile Dysfunction.

Damage to nerves, arteries, smooth muscles, and fibrous tissues, often as a result of diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, nerve disease or nerve damage, multiple sclerosis, atherosclerosis, and heart diseases account for the majority of ED cases.

Lifestyle choices most notably Smoking, drinking alcohol excessively, being overweight, and not exercising contribute to heart disease and vascular problems also raise the risk of ED. Surgery-especially radical prostate and bladder surgery for cancer-can also injure nerves and arteries near the penis, causing ED.In addition, ED can be a side effect of many common medicines such as blood pressure drugs, antihistamines, antidepressants, tranquilizers, appetite suppressants, and cimetidine, an ulcer drug.

Psychological factors such as stress, anxiety, guilt, depression, low self-esteem, and fear of sexual failure can also cause Erectile Dysfunction. Even when ED has a physical cause, psychological factors have the potential to make the condition worse. Hormonal abnormalities, such as low levels of testosterone, are a less frequent cause of ED.

Diagnosis for Erectile Dysfunction

Patient History
Firstly the person’s medical and sexual history is examined. This is done as use of certain prescription or illegal drugs can suggest a chemical cause.

Physical Examination
If the penis is not sensitive to physical touch, then a problem in the nervous system may be the cause.
Any unusual characteristics of the penis itself could suggest the source of the problem.

Laboratory Tests
Tests for systemic diseases include blood counts, urinalysis, lipid profile, and measurements of creatinine and liver enzymes. Measuring the amount of available testosterone in the blood can yield information about problems with the endocrine system and may provide explaination why a patient has decreased sexual desire.

Other Tests
As healthy men have involuntary erections during sleep, monitoring erections that occur during sleep i.e. nocturnal erections, can help rule out certain psychological causes of ED.

Psychosocial Examination
A psychosocial examination, using an interview and a questionnaire, can reveal psychological factors. A man’s sexual partner may also be interviewed.

Treatments for Erectile Dysfunction
Treament for ED depends on the cause. Making a few healthy lifestyle changes may solve the problem. Quitting smoking, reducing alcohol consumption, losing excess weight, and increasing physical activity may help some men regain sexual function.

Testosterone supplements may be used for cases due to hormonal deficiency. Most of the treatments enable an erection to be attained and sustained long enough for sexual intercourse, but do not permanently rectify the underlying condition. Among the tretments for ED are Psychotherapy, Drug Therapy (Oral Medications as well as Injectable Medications), Vacuum Devices and Surgery.

Oral Drug Therapy For Erectile Dysfunction
The Oral Medications used for treating Erectile Dysfunction all belong to a class of drugs called phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitors. These drugs work by enhancing the effects of nitric oxide, a chemical that relaxes smooth muscles in the penis during sexual stimulation and allows increased blood flow. None of these PDE inhibitors should be used more than once a day.The ground breaking Sildenafil (Kamagra) are competitive and selective inhibitors of Phosphodiesterase type 5, an intracellular enzyme.

Kamagra relaxes the cavernal smooth muscle of the penis flooding it and compressing the adjacent subtunical veins leading to erection of the organ.

Side Effects of Kamagra
Whether it is Kamagra, Levitra or Megalis, they must never be combined together and should be taken within an hour prior to coitus.Kamagra and the others should be taken only once in 24 hours.
This once a day safety margin is needed to avoid potential cardiovascular adverse events namely Low Blood Pressure hypotension, angina and myocardial infarction.
Headache, flushing, nasal congestion, dyspepsia and blue-green tingeing of vision are other notable side effects.
