Are You At Risk Of Erectile Dysfunction?

Are You At Risk Of Erectile Dysfunction?

If you’re noticing that it is taking much longer for you to get rock hard when you and your lover get frisky in bed these days, you just might need to ease up on work.

See, while checking out a medical journal the other day, I discovered that work-related stress is fast becoming one of the most common causes of erectile dysfunction among men. Sure this may sound surprising, but you’ll find out more when you follow along…

Unlike what a lot of guys mistakenly think, not getting an erection doesn’t already mean that there’s something wrong with your penis or perhaps you’re going through sudden physiological changes due to aging.

Although certain health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, atherosclerosis as well as other forms of cardiovascular disease can also cause complications in the body that prevent you from achieving a stable erection during sexual arousal, a new study reports that prolonged stress from work is currently one of the most common causes of erectile dysfunction among men.

According to a research conducted by the Oxfordshire Institute of Reproductive Health, guys who habitually stay too late at work experience hormonal changes that eventually makes it difficult for them to get rock hard when things get hot in the bedroom.

Based from the data gathered by scientists, men who spend more than 12 hours in the office daily experience a surge in cortisol and adrenaline, hormones that are usually released by the brain during stressful situations.

Instead of only releasing these stress hormones during instances that the brain projects as stressful, they tend to be given off by the endocrine system almost all the time. This makes a man feel easily anxious, even to the point of being vulnerable to panic attacks.

Now while having minimal amounts of adrenaline and cortisol in the body actually helps you become more alert and think more clearly, having excessive amounts of it at once can already disrupt a number of key bodily functions like getting an erection during sexual arousal.

This is because besides narrowing the arteries that direct more blood to the erectile tissues in the penis to firm it up, these stress hormones also lessen the amount of testosterone in the body, which not only makes you feel rather lethargic most of the time, but also takes your mind off sexual desire.

And just to make things even scarier, being exposed to excessive levels of cortisol and adrenaline frequently is also linked to depression, which is also considered as a major cause of erectile dysfunction among adult men.

So if you’re noticing that you don’t get rock hard on demand as easily nowadays, there’s no need to feel worried just yet. It is perhaps a signal that you should take it easy at the office.

(And here’s a trick that will amaze your date easily.)
