If you have ED, you will notice these symptoms –

  • Low levels of libido or loss of sexual interest
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Inability to achieve an orgasm
  • Heart problems
  • Blocked blood vessels
  • High levels of bad cholesterol or LDL
  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes 
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Sleep disorders
  • Multiple sclerosis

What raises your risk of getting ED?

Here are a few factors that make erectile dysfunction more likely-

  • Tobacco use- Tobacco narrows your blood vessels and reduces the supply of blood to your penis (an erection is only possible when a large volume of blood travels to the penis).
  • Obesity also reduces blood flow to the penis.
  • Prostate cancer surgery or radiation therapy.
  • An injury that causes damage to the nerves or arteries connected to the penis.
  • A surgery that affects the spinal cord or the nerves.
  • Drinking too much or consuming drugs.
