Erectile Dysfunction is a sexual condition in man in which he has trouble in maintaining or keeping erection. It is a common sexual dysfunction in man that becomes more common as you get older. But, it is not a part of ageing. Several reasons are there for this problem which we will discuss later.
Generally, the process of an erection starts in the brain. And Physical and mental stimulation are required for the beginning of the erection. The mental stimulation causes nerves present in the brain to send chemical messages to nerves present in the penis. This in turn leads to the free flow of blood into the penis. Due to this, high pressure in the penis gets set up and then traps the blood within both corpora cavernosa and results in the expansion of the penis. This helps the penis to keep an erection.
On the other hand, when the inflow of blood is stopped, then it opens outflow channels which in turn make the penis soft. And then this erection is said to be reversed.
In general, erection is a complex process that includes the involvement of hormones, brain, emotions, muscles, nerves and blood vessels as well.
