Male Impotence Symptoms


Many times, men suffering from impotence do not seek medical help. This is because of the embarrassment or because of the denial. However, if you are one of these men you should know that consulting a doctor is the best solution for treating impotence. He will advise you on the solutions and he will prescribe the proper treatment for the condition.

Being embarrassed should not be a problem as many men all over the world suffer from this condition. It is said that 10 % of the male population suffers a form or another of impotence.

Doctors require a physical examination and some tests to be performed in order to establish the cause and the gravity of the impotence. This way they will give you the proper treatment and advices. Many times the doctor will observe problems even from the physical examination. You may have a hormonal impotence and this type of impotence manifests with abnormal hair patterns or growth patterns.

If the impotence is due to a circulatory problem, this can be also seen at a physical examination. For example, the blood may be blocked by an aneurysm in the penile area. The Peyronie’s disease can be also observed at an examination. However, this disease is a rare one.

Besides physical examinations, doctor may rely on laboratory tests when diagnosing impotence. The laboratory tests are great at revealing the causes that led to impotence. Knowing the cause or causes is the first step to treating the condition.

Sometimes, impotence hides other more serious conditions and the doctor will observe if it is the case. The measurement of liver enzymes, blood count tests and urine analysis are all laboratory tests in an impotence case. If the patient lacks the sex desire, a testosterone test will also be performed.

Unfortunately, in some cases both laboratory tests and physical examinations do not reveal the cause of the impotence. If that is the case, doctors usually suggest other tests to be performed. Also, monitoring the patient over night might be required. This is because healthy men usually have erections during sleep. They are called night erections and they are very important in establishing whether a man suffers from impotence or not.

If the patient does not experience nocturnal erections, chances are that he suffers from a physical impotence. In this case the doctor is sure that the psychological factors have no importance as the physical impotence is the one that should be treated.

In conclusion, there are many ways that a doctor can establish the causes of your impotence. However, without consulting a doctor you will not know them and the impotence may aggravate over time.
