How to self-test whether your erectile function is normal

The quality of erectile function not only affects a man’s physiology and psychology, but also affects the couple’s feelings and family stability.

As a result, men usually care about their sexual abilities, and even some men with asexual experience worry about their erectile function. So when this erection problem occurs, how should we judge our erectile ability?

You can self-test whether your sexual function is normal through the “three look” .

See if I have morning erection

See if you have morning erection (the penis usually gets erect in the morning), nocturnal erection (the erection of the penis when you wake up in the middle of the night), or full erection (the bladder is filled with urine, urinary urges and penile erection appear). If the penis has an erection, then go to the second move.

Second, look at the direction of the head of the penis

When the penis is erect, the head of the penis is pointed. The direction of the head of the penis is related to the hardness of the erection of the penis. If you are in a standing position, supine position, side lying position, or end sitting position, when the penis is in an erect state, the head of the penis is pointing or biased toward your head, then the erection hardness of the penis is very good; if the erection hardness of the penis is perpendicular to the body torso , The erection hardness of the penis is also normal; if the head of the penis is biased toward the direction of your feet, then the hardness is relatively poor.

Third look at the maintenance time of penile erection

Duration of penile erection maintenance. Generally speaking, the erection of the penis can be maintained for three to five minutes, or even longer. The longer the erection time is, the better. In particular, it should be noted that if you can achieve long-term erections after using drugs, this situation should be another matter.

Through the above-mentioned “three-view” self-test, if one’s sexual function is within the normal range, there is no need to worry about temporary “weakness”. If it is abnormal, you should seek medical treatment as soon as possible.

Four common causes of a weak erection

When an erection problem occurs, the cause of the erection problem should be judged, which is often the most concerned by patients.

Generally speaking, the etiological factors of erectile dysfunction are divided into two categories, one is psychological factors, and the other is organic disease.

A neuropathy

Nervous system disease is one of the most important factors that cause penile erection, so it is necessary for male friends to understand more about hypothalamic-pituitary tumors or tumors in other parts of the brain, local brain damage, such as localized epilepsy, encephalitis, cerebral hemorrhage Compression, etc., spinal cord injury, spinal cord tumors, chronic alcoholism, multiple sclerosis, pelvic surgery, damage to peripheral autonomic nerves, etc. can produce nothing.

Diseases of the secondary urogenital organs

Male friends are easily troubled by genitourinary diseases, which also brings great trouble to male friends. Common urogenital diseases such as prostatitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia, epididymitis, varicocele, etc. can often lead to non-examination. Some middle-aged and elderly patients are not lifted because of prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia.

Three endocrine lesions

Endocrine diseases are also one of the factors that cause penile erection, which persecutes the physical and mental health of men. Endocrine diseases such as diabetes, pituitary insufficiency, testicular damage or hypofunction, or hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, and insufficient adrenal function can lead to it. Do not lift.

Four energy and nerve factors

Due to the excessive pressure in life and work in recent years, the energy pressure of male friends is excessive, such as the trauma of sexual psychology in childhood, or lack of sexual knowledge in newlyweds, nervous and anxious psychology, or the emotional discord between husband and wife, and the family relationship is not harmonious. .

In fact, for the situation of weak erection, easy soft foreplay, and weak erection, I hope everyone can treat it correctly and take it seriously, because this is a precursor to impotence. We should find out in time and actively seek solutions. The premise of finding a solution is It is necessary to find out why this is the case so that we can prescribe the right medicine and recover as soon as possible. In fact, most of the reasons why most people are like this are mostly caused by their physical conditions, so we still hope that parents can take their bodies seriously.
