Due to the high number of sexual problems in different countries and the high number of sexual problems, we decided to address the common sexual problems and discomforts between men and women. In this section, we take a brief look at the types of disabilities in women and men and its statistics in Iranian society. So if you want to know the causes of impotence and its treatment methods, do not miss our next articles.
Do not leave impotence untreated
I have been working in a government office in the field of family psychology and counseling for some time. I recently shared an article on how to prevent and treat impotence at work. As usual, I sent the article in hierarchy to the training group so that it could be shared with my colleagues, but before noon, the training group called me and said, “Unfortunately, Mr. Darbani, this article cannot be shared in the office.”
But we need to know that inability to do anything can lead to inferiority complex, low self-esteem and low self-esteem, and the sooner we prevent it, the less harm we will suffer, and in this regard, we must inform and educate.
Put the embarrassment aside!
Some time ago, I had clients who called me from time to time and said, “My sister is depressed and does not come to the office for treatment because she is embarrassed. How many solutions can you give?” Two days ago, he came to the counseling center and said, “I am the one who occasionally asked for counseling for my sister; “I have a problem myself, but I was ashamed to say it.” I replied, “Have you ever had the flu or the common cold?” He said, “Yes, very much!” I said, “Were you ashamed to go to the doctor then?” “No,” he replied. I said, “This is a kind of disease and he is not ashamed!”
3 million Iranian couples have impotence ?!
Impotence exists in both men and women, but manifests itself differently in men and women. It is said that the most common untreated problem in different societies is impotence and only one percent of people with impotence are treated. The most common reason for not treating impotence is not having enough information about safe and secure treatments. It is estimated that more than 10% of the population (about 3 million couples in Iran) have impotence; So you are not alone.
Treatment is easier today
In the 1950s, a theory was put forward that said that more than 90% of erectile dysfunction was psychological and that patients should be focused on psychological issues. But today, advances in medical knowledge and modern urological methods show that more than 50% of impotence has organic causes (disorders of the nervous, biochemical and vascular systems). This makes it clear that this disorder can be treated more easily. However, physicians believe that the imbalance of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems is the basis for the development of impotence due to psychological problems. Many mentally ill people, such as those with depression, are bipolar, albeit in the depressive phase, and are among those who are most affected by the disorder.
Types of impotence
Impotence is a common problem that affects the patient and his or her spouse. Treatment also requires the help of couples during treatment. There are two types of impotence: primary and secondary. Men with primary impotence have never had the ability to have sex properly. This type of disability is very rare and usually has deep psychological reasons such as fear of intimacy, guilt and anxiety. In secondary impotence, the patient loses the ability to activate his or her genitals after a while. This type of disability is more common, and men with it are only able to perform about 25 percent of their sexual activity. Secondary disability usually develops gradually and is easier to treat than the first type.
Who is at risk?
Millions of couples around the world suffer from impotence. With increasing age from 50 to 70 years, the prevalence of this problem increases from about 5 to 15 percent. Studies show that 60% of men in the fifth decade of life are able to have sex, but by the seventh decade of life this ability is present in only 33% of them. 60% of men who have had a previous stroke also suffer from impotence, and 50% of people with diabetes have this problem. It should be noted that impotence exists even in 5% of people under 40 with varying degrees.
If left untreated, it becomes chronic!
Although impotence is a common problem for a couple, it can be treated. Disability in many men is seen as an incomplete erection or other forms of it, but it can remain permanent and chronic. Simply put, the inability to create and maintain a proper erection for successful intercourse is called male impotence. This disability not only has a huge impact on the quality of life, but is a common problem that affects the person and his spouse and causes anxiety, depression and reduced personal satisfaction with married life and loss of self-confidence, each of which Problems alone increase the psychological and social complications associated with this disease, so the treatment of impotence has a special priority.
Diseases that cause impotence
In general, in 15% of cases, the cause of impotence is mental problems (usually in young people) and in 85% of cases, it is due to physiological dysfunction, the most common causes in 40% of cases of vascular diseases (such as atherosclerosis), 30% of diabetes, 10% of neurological disorders (such as spinal cord amputation, Parkinson’s, OMAS, etc.), 9% of pelvic surgeries and injuries, 8% of various drugs and narcotics (such as cigarettes, antihypertensive drugs and antidepressants) and 3 Percentage of hormonal disorders.
The first step is to accept the existence of disability
The first step, and perhaps the most difficult issue in these patients, is to accept the existence of a problem, because then a way to treat it can be easily found. In order for a penis to get an erection, different parts of the body must be coordinated with each other. A man can not easily get an erection just because he wants to. To create an erection, coordination between the human psyche, brain and central and peripheral nervous system, blood hormones, blood vessels including arteries and veins is necessary for blood flow to enter the organ and not leave it. Impotence occurs when there is a disorder in any of the organs and devices involved in erection.
You can use this simple test to see if your impotence is due to physical or psychological factors. Men often experience sexual arousal at night while sleeping and in the morning. If you also have these stimuli and your genitals are activated several times during sleep, it is clear that they are normal and all the nerves, muscles and arteries that are used in this area are working properly. This shows that the cause of impotence is elsewhere than physical defects. To find out, you can simply go to sleep by wetting your limb and sticking a sticker. After waking up during the day, if the label is not in place, it means that you are irritated at night and you are completely healthy.
