Question: I'm 20 and in the last few months I have had erectile dysfunction! I don't know what could be causing it either. I have stopped masturbating for a long period of time and that didn't really help! What are some causes of erectile dysfunction? And is there any way to fix it?

Treatment depends on the cause. Testosterone supplements may be used for cases due to hormonal deficiency. However, the cause is more usually lack of adequate penile blood supply as a result of damage to inner walls of blood vessels. This damage is more frequent in older men, and often associated with disease, in particular diabetes. Treatments (with the exception of testosterone supplementation, where effective) work on a temporary basis: they enable an erection to be attained and maintained long enough for intercourse, but do not permanently improve the underlying condition. There are different treatments available Oral Treatment 3 different tablets are currently available from the doctor and these work when there is sexual stimulation. Depending on the treatment, it will need to be taken 20 minutes to 1 hour before sex and the period of time over which it works can vary between 3 hours and up to 36 hours. Alprostadil This can be injected into the penis or inserted using a special applicator - usually just before sexual intercourse. Alprostadil has also bcome available in some countries as a topical cream (under the brand name Befar), and preliminary studies have shown a clinical efficacy of up to 83%. It has an onset of action of 10-15 minutes and its effects can last over 4 hours.[citation needed] Vacuum device These work by placing the penis in a vacuum cylinder device. The device helps draw blood into the penis. A ring at the base of the penis help maintain the erection. This type of device is sometimes referred to as penis pump and may be used just prior to sexual intercourse. Hormone treatment It is rare, but some men receive hormones for their erection problem. This does depend on the cause of the problem as well as other factors. Surgery Often, as a last resort if other treatments have failed, the most common procedure is prosthetic implants which involves the insertion of artificial rods into the penis.[26] Counselling Counselling is often a consideration, both where a psychological cause is suspected or must be ruled out, or to assist in management of any distress. ED can in many cases be treated by drugs taken orally, injected, or as penile suppositories. These drugs increase the efficacy of NO, which dilates the blood vessels of corpora cavernosa. When oral drugs or suppositories fail, injections into the erectile tissue of the penile shaft are extremely effective but occasionally cause priapism. When pharmacological methods fail, a purpose-designed external vacuum pump can be used to attain erection, with a separate compression ring fitted to the penis to maintain it. These pumps should be distinguished from other "penis pumps" (supplied without compression rings) which, rather than being used for temporary treatment of impotence, are claimed to increase penis length if used frequently, or vibrate as an aid to masturbation. More drastically, inflatable or rigid penile implants may be fitted surgically. Implants are irreversible and costly. All these mechanical methods are based on simple principles of hydraulics and mechanics and are quite reliable, but have their disadvantages. In a few cases there is a vascular problem which can be treated surgically. In any case, good luck on getting your erections back.

Zelophehad Originally Answered: Anxiety at night causing me to loose sleep. What can I do to alleviate this?
Difficult one this Certain foods might help to calm you down in the evenings e.g. a milky chocolate drink and a banana, or perhaps dietary supplements such as passiflora & fish oils. But in the end you have to learn a discipline of what to fix your mind upon. It sounds as if you're trying too hard with your learning & this could be causing the problem, If you get anxiety symptoms in class, try to make it through the class if you can, if not explain that you don't feel well & need to go outside. as soon as you're outdoors run as if your life depended on it & keep going till you're exhausted & then some more. By doing this you'll be using the anxiety chemicals (adrenaline & cortisol) for what they were meant for & so they won't still be hanging round in your system when you want to go to bed. In any case, about 2-3 hours before you go to bed, go out for a run or do some sort of serious exercise for an hour. Then shower & have your relaxation foods as supper & spend at least the last hour or two before you try go to sleep just winding down and thinking about something other than your studies. Some people suggest imagining your best holiday ever or thinking back to a time you felt really warm & secure, or even just reading the Bible till you find yourself falling asleep. Any or all of these may help.

Muy buenas. Sé lo que es tener problemas de erección. Hace tan sólo unos meses yo tenía muchas complicaciones para levantar la bandera, y me hacía poca gracia estar a media asta (o directamente de capa caída). Lo primero, no es una razón para sentirse mal consigo mismo. La disfunción eréctil es un problema ampliamente reconocido por médicos (y, sobre todo, por sus pacientes jajajajaja) que afecta a una gran parte de la población. Si quieres unos consejos, te voy a pasar una web con un vídeo muy interesante. Espero que te sirva. http://ereccion.youtips.info

I'd like to point out that antarctic's comment about "no increase since the 40's is deceptive- the 40's was another warm period.Right after the "dust bowl" , the warmest year on record, 1938, and a time of such low arctic ice, that the northwwst passage was repeatedly navigated. This is like the comparison of arctic ice now, to arctic ice in the 1970's. The 70's were a cold period, so of course there was more ice then. Remember the "coming ice age" scare of that time? It's an example of data selection to make their case.
