The main causes of weak potency

Experts say that only a doctor can find out and correctly eliminate the cause of a decrease in potency after communicating with the patient and conducting a thorough examination. In some cases, it may be necessary to consult several doctors at once, for example, a cardiologist, endocrinologist, andrologist, neurologist, urologist and others.

Among the main reasons for weak potency in men, experts identify the following factors:

  • chronic diseases, for example, high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, prostatitis, diabetes mellitus and others;
  • taking certain medications, including antidepressants, hormones, pills to lower blood pressure;
  • harmful working conditions and poor environmental conditions;
  • a sedentary lifestyle and stagnant processes in the small pelvis;
  • physical, mental, psycho-emotional overwork;
  • an unfavorable environment at home and at work;
  • frequent stress and anxiety, increased anxiety, depression, apathy;
  • excess weight;
  • bad habits;
  • unbalanced diet;
  • lack of self-confidence, fear and intense excitement before sexual intercourse;
  • not getting enough rest;
  • congenital and acquired pathologies of the genital organs.

Another reason for a decrease in potency is irregular sex life, masturbation, replacing full-fledged sex, or frequent change of partners.

Some other factors can also negatively affect potency. For example, many experts argue that frequent riding a motorcycle, horse, bicycle can lead to a deterioration in the blood supply to the penis and cause problems with potency. Also, doctors have identified a link between periodontitis (gum disease) and "male weakness. "

Signs of weak potency

As we have already found out, the reasons for the decrease in potency can be different. The first signs of such a phenomenon are usually a decrease in the desire for intimacy with a woman. A decrease in potency is manifested in a different way:

  • the desire for sex occurs rarely or does not appear at all;
  • there is no morning erection - the reasons for this may lie in banal fatigue, age-related changes or diseases;
  • lack of erection during foreplay to sex;
  • incomplete or sluggish erection, which can fall off at the most inopportune moment;
  • the impossibility of performing long-term and high-quality sexual intercourse;
  • problems with ejaculation;
  • decreased sensitivity of the penis and blurred sensations during orgasm.

If one or more of these signs appear for the first time or are very rare, then you should not sound the alarm. Often, such a short-term decrease in potency is caused by overwork, stress or an unfavorable environment and does not require treatment.

General recommendations for increasing potency

Erection is a very complex mechanism, which is influenced by a variety of external and internal factors. Any problems in the body can cause a man to lose potency for several days or forever. Indeed, without timely diagnosis and treatment, some diseases can lead to irreversible changes in tissues, which leads to impotence and infertility.

If within a week there is no improvement in health or, in addition to a decrease in potency, you notice other disturbing symptoms, for example, frequent and painful urination, difficulty with ejaculation, a feeling of heaviness in the lower abdomen, blood or pus in urine or semen, then you should consult a doctor. . .

Usually, to eliminate the causes of sluggish potency and normalize the sexual life of a man, after the examination, specialists select a complex therapy. This takes into account the individual characteristics of a person, his health status, age and other factors. With a slight deterioration in potency, the doctor prescribes to drink a vitamin-mineral complex, selects fortifying and tonic preparations.

What can help with weak potency?

For problems with erection caused by stress and anxiety, it is recommended to resort to sedatives, decoctions of lemon balm and mint, as well as some other herbs. Some experts recommend using homeopathic remedies, folk recipes and dietary supplements to improve potency.

But such methods do not always have proven clinical efficacy. In addition, they do not help everyone, although they have a minimum of contraindications and possible side effects.

In some especially serious cases, when it is not possible to improve potency in a natural way, the doctor selects an erection stimulator for the man.

Unfortunately, they have a lot of contraindications and possible side effects; they are not suitable for everyone. It is impossible to use such funds as a prophylaxis for erectile dysfunction.

If problems with erection have arisen due to any disease, then, first of all, its treatment is carried out, and only then measures are taken to restore potency. For example, if the cause of a sluggish erection is prostatitis, then therapy is performed to eliminate inflammation.

Also, if the cause of erectile dysfunction are specific drugs used on an ongoing basis, including antidepressants and drugs to lower blood pressure, then the specialist can choose another medication that has the same therapeutic effect, but less dangerous for potency.


Remember, if your potency is weak, the causes and treatments for this condition can be very different. It is difficult to find out exactly what negatively affected the erection on your own. And the treatment chosen by you may turn out to be not only useless, but also hazardous to health.

Therefore, at the first symptoms of erectile dysfunction, you should discard all doubts and shyness and go to a good specialist. With this approach, the chances of a full return of potency at any age, even at 60, are significantly increased.
