Women and Erectile Dysfunction
Do you know that communication when it comes to sex could be awkward most especially prior your ED experience and the denial that follows it? Erectile dysfunction can result from different factors and often surface when there are underlying problems in the life of a man according to Megan Fleming, a certified a sex and relationship therapist and clinical instructor of psychology at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University. Stresses at work or concern about job stability are enough to throw a man off balance. After one or two occurrence, erectile dysfunction can become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Fleming said that “the anxiety and tension men feel about what will or won’t happen unfortunately hijacks their arousal response. The foundation of arousal is relaxation. Men who experience erectile dysfunctions are almost always feeling anything but relaxed, so focused on what they want to have happen and fear won’t happen both for themselves and their partners.” In conclusion, it is very likely that a medical condition could be the brain behind the erectile dysfunction. If it becomes a recurring problem, then a check-up is needed.
