The potency level is influenced by various factors. According to sexologists, it is dependent on self-esteem and even a sense of well-being. People with reduced mood and depression more often complain about problems related to sexual functions. Sexual desire should be considered differently from gender. Women and men talk about a complex problem. What contributes to the decrease in potency? Where is the source of the potency problem?
Erectile dysfunction is particularly affected by physical conditions. Studies show that only 10% of cases are due to psychological factors. In some cases, physical and psychological factors can be found in the origin of the potency disorder. Potency problems in a man are talked about when he is unable to have sexual intercourse for sexual satisfaction. When it comes to the sexual desire of women, much depends on age. The highest level is observed at the moment of libido development.
Factors responsible for potency weakening
The physical factors responsible for potency problems are mentioned most often:
- hormonal imbalance,
- metabolic disorders,
- cardiovascular and myocardial diseases,
- neurological disorders.
In addition, stimulants and some medicines are important factors.
Weakening of potency and diseases of the organism
Hormones rule the functions of the sexual system, through at least the smallest perturbations in the endocrine economy affect the potency. There is mainly talk of testosterone, a male hormone affecting excitability in erogenous zones. Due to too low a level of testosterone, impotence develops. In such cases, the hormonal balance should be normalized by supplementing the hormone.
Among metabolic disorders, diabetes is an important threat to potency. Studies show that 75% of men with diabetes suffer from erectile dysfunction. This disease manifests itself in sexual disorders, impairment of sexual functions, including loss of libido and spermatogenesis. Over time, it leads to the development of vascular impotence and autonomous neuropathy with damage to the reproductive system.
The decrease in libido is mainly caused by cardiovascular diseases and heart disease. This is particularly true of chronic diseases such as hypertension, atherosclerosis, hypotension of the heart muscle or elevated cholesterol. Vascular diseases are most often mentioned as the cause of physical erectile dysfunction. Impotence increases as a result of blood vessel obstruction.
Compassionate diseases within the autonomic nervous system can also adversely affect the behaviour of sexual functions. Usually we're dealing with a reduction in sexual desire.
Medical devices and stimulants
The use of drugs, especially psychotropic and steroid drugs, but not only in side effects, may cause erectile dysfunction. Steroid drugs have such consequences because they affect the development of pathological changes in blood vessels. In this case, we are talking about vascular impotence.
Addiction to alcohol, drugs and nicotine is a common problem that affects erection problems. The risk of sexual disorders due to addictions is much higher for men than for women. As a result of alcohol dependence, up to 85% of men struggle with libido disorders. Meanwhile, nicotine can have a negative impact on the volume and quality of semen.
