4 signs you have erectile dysfunction

By David Joshua Jennings Friday, October 10, 2014 - 18:22
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.

Sir jab me sex karne jata hoon to me ling yoni me parvesh karne ke discharge ho jata hoon or long me pura kathorta nhi aata hai kabhi jishse Hume yoni me ling parvesh karne me kaphi diktat hoti plz solution bataiye sir
Deepak bete, yadi shareer mein uttejna adhik ho, sex ki bhavna zyada hogi toh sheegra hi patan hone ki sambhavna bhi adhik ho sakti hai. Aisi stithi mein, partner par focus badhana, foreplay, yaani bete ki pravesh karne se pehle bahut se alag alag kriyaen karna , jinse dono ko anand mile, apne partner ki uttejna badhana, yeh sab activities sabse zaroori hain. Iske ilava, partner ke saath sex karne se pehle, ek baar hast maithun kar saktey hain, utne samay pehle jitne mein ling mein tanaav aa jaaye. Condom ka istemaal bhi jaldi discharge kum karne mein madadgaar saabit ho sakta hai. https://lovematters.in/hi/news/premature-ejaculation-top-five-facts Yadi aapke man mein koi bhee aur sawaal hain aur aap is mudde par humse aur gehri charcha mein judna chahte hain toh hamare discussion board ‘Just Poocho’ mein zaroor shamil hon! https://lovematters.in/en/forum

Beta ho sakta hai ki veh jab chhota ho raha hai toh aapko lag raha hai ki veh pet mein ja raha hai- yes? Lekin yeh sach nahi bhi ho sakta hai. Yadi tanav (Sakht hone) ke samay ling 21/2 inch tak hai toh wo theek hai- sex bhi ho sakta hai- lekin isse kum ho toh, aapko ek specialist doctor se milna hoga- endocrinologist- yani hormone se sambandhit vishesagya se. Chahe toh abhi bhi mill leejiye. Yadi aap is mudde par humse aur gehri charcha mein judna chahte hain toh hamare disccsion board “Just Poocho” mein zaroor shamil ho! https://lovematters.in/en/forum
