4 signs you have erectile dysfunction

Worried about erectile dysfunction? Here are some signs to find out if you’ve got problems in the erection department.

No, having erectile dysfunction (ED) doesn’t mean you’re less manly – it’s linked to specific physical and psychological causes. Every man has erection problems at some point in his life, but if the problem persists over a longer period of time then it may be a sign that you have erection troubles.

Watch out for these signs:

  1. You can’t get a hard-on
    It’s not unusual for a man’s penis to not function from time to time, but a frequent inability to get an erection could be a sign of ED, or other more serious medical problems. If you get an erection in some situations (while you’re masturbating, for example) but not in others (when naked in front of your partner), then the problem is probably psychological. If you are unable to get an erection under any circumstances, then it’s likely the result of a physical issue.

  2. The inability to maintain an erection 
    Okay, say you can get an erection during foreplay with your partner, and your performance is great for the first half of the game, but as you go along, your erection begins to deflate. We’re not talking about coming too soon – that’s an ejaculation problem. We’re talking about being unable to keep an erect penis until you orgasm. If you can’t, then something is going wrong during the process of your penis filling up with blood and hardening. Bad news – you may have ED.

  3. Painful hard-on for over four hours
    These erections, called a “priapism,” are usually painful and can happen even when you don’t want to have sex. Priapisms happen when too much blood flows into the penis, or the blood in the penis is not able to effectively drain out. Such unwanted erections could result in you not having erections in the future because of permanent tissue damage. So get medical treatment as soon as possible. 

  4. Curved or painful erection that makes sex difficult
    Of course, penises come in different shapes and sizes and it’s not uncommon to have a curved erection. But some men get erections so bent that it causes them pain or makes sex impossible. Such a curved erection may be a sign of Peyronie's disease, which is caused by scar tissue forming along the length of the penis and results in warped, painful erections. Although the condition usually goes away on its own, if it is causing you anxiety or preventing successful sexual intercourse, you should see a doctor.

Watch out for next week’s article about what you could do to treat erectile dysfunction. However, please make sure that you use the signs mentioned above as a guide to seek medical attention. Only a trained doctor can provide clarity about the best steps ahead.

बेटा कही आप किसी tension, pressure में तो नहीं है ना? ये समझ लिजिए कि किसी भी sexual activity या लिंग में तनाव के लिए बिल्कुल तनाव मुक्त होना ज़रूरी है. और body को अपना काम करने दीजिए बेटे यदि कोई बीमारी ना हो तो ये ठीक हो जाना चाहिए. जिस बारे में और यहा पढ़ लो: https://lovematters.in/hi/news/4-signs-you-have-erectile-dysfunction https://lovematters.in/hi/making-love/sex-problems-how-to-overcome-them/i-have-erection-problems-what-are-your-tips-auntyji यदि इस मुद्दे पर आप और गहरी चर्चा में जुड़ना चाहते हैं, तो हमारे डिस्कशन बोर्ड, " जस्ट पूछो" में ज़रूर शामिल हों. https://lovematters.in/en/forum
Rahul hastmaithun se aisa nahi ho sakta hai bete, iska anya karan ho sakta hai, jiske liye kisi panjikrit doctor se mil lena behtar hoga. Ye jaan lijiye ki hastmaithun ek safe /surakshit tareeka hai apni santushti karne ka. Isse koi nuksaan ya beemari nahi hota.

Ling ke sakt bne rahen me preshani h. Shuruaat me toh mera ling puri tarah se khada ho jata h pr fir kuch hi second me, pura tarah baith jata h, kosish krne pr bhi nhi khada hota fir se. Mujhe samjh nhi aa rha kya kru. Maine Viagra medicine try Kiya toh usse problem solve ho jati h. Pr humesha lena toh sahi nhi h uske bhi toh kuch side effects ho sakte h. Mai kya kru meri age 31 year h aur meri shaadi hone wali hai.
Ankit bete kya aapne Viagra lene se pahle kisi panjikrit doctor se salah liya tha?? Ye toh aap jaantey hee hain na ki yeh bahut hee dangerous hai aur iske kai side effects ho skate hain. Aur saath hee is par ek baar yadi nirbahr ho gaye, so iske bina kar nahin payenge. Jab koi beemari ya kami ho toh baat bhi hai – wo bhi doctor ki salaah se varna nahin. Sex mein aur apne partner mein ruchi badhaiye aur sex ko enjoy kijiye, safe rahiye. Aur ye samjh lijiye ki sex karney ke liye ya ling me tanav aane ke liye bilkul tanav mukt hona zaruri hai bête. Body ko apna kaam karne dijiye bête - aur yadi koi bimaari na ho to - ye thik ho jana chahiye.
