Alcohol and Erectile Dysfunction

You might consider having a few drinks to get in the mood, but overindulging could make it harder for your Dick to access the resources he needs to get erect. Alcohol may give you the confidence for a Turn On, especially in younger years, but, in sufficient quantities will definitely induce ED. Here is a summary of research findings on alcohol consumption and ED buy Viagra Sydney for the general population:

* Acute, Low Dose use: Increased desire for sex; Delayed ejaculation; Decreased erection hardness (tumescence).
* Acute, High Dose use: ED problems; Delayed ejaculations; Decreased orgasm intensity.
* Chronic use: ED problems; Decreased sex drive.
* In Withdrawal mode: ED problems; Decreased sex drive; Fewer nocturnal erections.
* Post Withdrawal phase: Return to normal sexual functioning for most but, erection and sex drive may be permanent from severe alcoholism.

Unless you have permanent damage, the good news is that with adequate withdrawal, normal sexual function can return. Although alcohol does not directly affect the production of Nitric Oxide in your Dick’s cells, it affects ED in two ways:

Firstly, it directly affects your brain and nervous system and produces the results for Acute and Chronic use as noted above. As you are unique the quantities vary but some men are susceptible to even small quantities and it’s worth noting that not all drinking men suffer from alcohol-induced ED. In fact, in low doses it helps the sexual function of some men.

Continued excessive alcohol consumption can cause damage to a variety of body systems: nerve damage, liver damage and hormone imbalances and permanently contribute to an ED condition.

Relate this to yourself and realistically assess whether alcohol had any role in your last 3-5 ED events. To quote Shakespeare from Macbeth,: “Drink provokes the desire but taketh away the performance.”

If you do use alcohol, especially in the Acute categories, try experimenting to see if it affects your ED. Try stopping for at least two weeks and see if your ED condition improves and by how much. Alcohol could be only one of the contributing factors to your ED condition. If you notice a consistent improvement you will have very easily treated this source. If it’s only somewhat improved, we will have to find the other contributory causes.

Finally, research has also confirmed that moderate drinking of anti oxidant rich drinks such as red wine has health benefits such as reducing heart disease risks. And that has to be good for ED.
