    Enquiry Form

    How embarrassing it is for the male whose wife has just become horny wanting her to be given sexual pleasure, but after several tries, the male is finding it difficult to get erected.

    According to the experts of the fertility clinic in Ludhiana, “Males, do not be too harsh on yourselves if you are failing to get the penis erected. It is a remediable thing. Consult the doctors at the earliest. If, owing to the embarrassment of the prevailing social myths, you did not go to the sexologist, then soon you’ll need to visit an IVF centre in Punjab ( as aggravation of this condition will make you infertile).”

    Facts About Erectile Dysfunctioning

    • It’s common among males. 6 in 10 males suffer from this.
    • It can be caused by a poor lifestyle and chronic illness.
    • In 90% of the cases, it is temporary.

    Let us discuss this concept in detail

    For better understanding, we have summarised this issue in the two categories namely: Short term ED and Long term ED

    Short Term ED – Occasional Problems With Erection

    Not always, but if sometimes (like once in a month or two months), if you are not able to get erected despite the several seductive attempts of your wife or the mating partner, then it is a completely normal thing that can not be deemed as a subject of concern.

    Factors responsible for this:

    • Situational ED

    In situational ED, the males find it difficult to maintain an erection during sexual intercourse and both during masturbation.


    • Performance Pressure
    • Nervousness
    • Discomfort
    • Temporary ED

    When certain factors of the lifestyle are responsible for disturbing you to have a pleasurable sexual life, then it will be termed as the temporary ED.


    • Smoking
    • Poor Diet
    • Chronic Stress
    • Physical inactivity
    • Metabolic Syndrome

    Long Term ED – Irreversible Dysfunctioning

    When ED comes out to be difficult to get reversed, then it gets enlisted itself in the long term ED. There are many conditions which can be held responsible for this thing as:

    • Diabetes
    • Multiple Sclerosis
    • Spinal Cord Injuries
    • Blockage in the arteries
    • Damage to the nerves or the penile tissues
    • Peyronie’s Disease
    • Parkinson’s Disease
    • Prescribe medications ( for High BP and Depression)


    Here we are only talking about the treatment of the temporary ED

    Based on your medical condition and the potential cause of the ED, the doctor may opt up from the following treatment options:

    • Intake of the medications

    This is considered as the first-line treatment and in 80% of the cases, it shows its positive effects and there is no need to switch to the other treatment options.

    • Quitting Smoking

    Smoking is known for doing a great deal of damage to the blood vessels. With this, it is quite natural that the blood flow towards the penis will get interfered with. So it is very important to quit smoking. If you find it difficult to quit it, then consult the doctors.

    • Proper diet and exercise

    These two things are the crucial elements of the well-being of the people. If these are paid thorough attention to, then the man will never face any ED kind of issue.
