Sexual performance can be affected by many things. Erection problems or erectile dysfunction is triggered by both psychological and physical factors. It is supposed that in most cases there is a physical factor involved. Psychological factors that contribute to or bring on erection problems are tension and anxiety, conflicts and dissatisfaction with a sexual partner, depression. Men with erection problems often have the fear of poor performance in bed. Males who have suffered from erection problems in the past are worried about their sexual performance. This distracts from getting sexually stimulated, thereby causing erection problems. Among physical factors leading to erectile dysfunction are diabetes, insufficient blood flow to the genital area, penile nerve damage, endocrine imbalances, alcohol and drug abuse, such as heavy smoking, high cholesterol level and vascular problems. Still, whatever the causes are, it is common for males who suffer from erectile dysfunction to have feelings of guilt, anxiety and low self-esteem and confidence. There are only 3 oral therapies approved by the U.S. FDA to treat ED: Cialis, Levitra, and Viagra. The medicines relax and widen the penile walls allowing more blood to flow to the organ, so that when a male is sexually stimulated, he can attain an erection. The medications work by a similar mechanism to cause an erection. There are insignificant differences in how long and how promptly the medication takes effect. Levitra works a little longer than Viagra. They both take effect in about 30 minutes. With Levitra, the effects last for about 5 hours, whereas the effects of Viagra for 4 hours. Cialis works a little quicker (in about 15 minutes after administration), and the effects last much longer - up to 36 hours in some cases. But while each drug has proven powerful, none is cure-all. And they can cause health problems if taken with other drugs, especially with nitrate or nitroglycerin cardiac medicines, as well as lead to more general side effects, such as bad headaches and - in the case of Viagra - blurred vision. Apart from drugs, there are other methods, such as vacuum therapy, penile injections, urethral pellets and penile implants for severe cases of erectile dysfunction. The kind of therapy, so, depends upon the severity of ED.
