Erectile Dysfunction in Japan – Causes and Therapy

What causes Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction in men can be caused due to psychological factors such as stress or physical aspects like problems with hormones, nerves and blood vessels associated with arousal. Lifestyle related factors such as smoking or physical inactivity can also lead to ED. In a majority of the cases, ED occurs due to other conditions such as high blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, cardiac disease, obesity, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and sleep disorders.

Common ED treatments

The nature of ED treatment recommended for patients depends on the underlying cause. There are numerous oral medications used to treat ED, which help relax the penile muscles thereby encouraging an erection via stimulation. These medications should not be taken without consulting a doctor, as the dosage and potency varies from one person to the other. There are also injectables suggested for the same purpose to treat erectile dysfunction in Japan. In cases where ED is caused due to low levels of testosterone, a testosterone replacement therapy may be suggested to the patient. Japanese medical practitioners may use herbal and natural remedies that use plants, fungi and roots to treat impotence. For instance, Japanese research studies revealed that impotence can be treated with a 64 percent success rate by using substances like Cordyceps.

In cases where oral or injectable medications prove to be ineffective or inappropriate, the doctor may suggest other treatment options such as a penis pump or implants. The vacuum device is powered by a battery and can be used to draw blood into the penis by creating a vacuum. This again should be used only following a doctor’s consultation. Implants are another option for patients with erectile dysfunction in Japan. They are surgically placed in the individual, following which the patient can control erections through the implanted inflatable devices as and when desired. Patients with ED due to emotional and psychological issues are generally suggested to partake in counseling to address the issue.
