1. Primary impotence

This is usually caused by a trapped nerve and may be said as a physical abnormality in the penis. In this condition, a man has never had a sexual erection in his life at all. However, the man will experience morning erections.

2. Secondary impotence

This is when a person was able to have erections in the past but is no longer able to. In some cases, it may also be such that the man is able to have proper erections at the moment as well, but there was a point in the past he was unable to do so.

3. Partial impotence

This is a condition where the penis becomes erect for a while but does not remain so long enough to sustain a sexual intercourse.

4. Situational impotence

This is a situation where some men are able to achieve full erections only in certain situations but not in others. It may be such that the person concerned is able to have proper erections during masturbation but not during actual sexual activity.

5. Total impotence

This is the condition when there is absolute absence of erections in the male. This includes early morning erections as well.

Symptoms Of Erectile Dysfunction:

It is obvious from its nature, erectile dysfunction is a very intimate sexual issue and is usually self-diagnosable. In some cases, a person may notice that his penis is slightly curved. This condition (known as Peyronie’s disease) is one of the first symptoms of erectile dysfunction. However, everyone suffering from erectile dysfunction need not have this particular attribute. Some people, particularly those suffering from diabetes, note a narrowing of the penile artery. This is another symptom of erectile dysfunction. However, a decreased sex drive that stretches for a prolonged period of time is one of the most common symptoms of this condition.

Ways To Treat This Condition:

Erectile dysfunction may be caused due to the consumption of some medications (this would include the medication for things like epilepsy, depression, anxiety, thyroid issues among others). Stopping the medicinal intake usually takes care of this problem. Often people resort to taking erectile pills in order to deal with this condition. Direct injection of the medication into the penis is also known to help many. However, it is possible to treat erectile dysfunction even without the consumption of medicines. 

How To Treat ED Without Medication:

It is obvious that the consumption of any form of medication is bound to have certain side effects on your body. Thus it will be wise on your part to try to treat this condition without thriving on artificial medication. Luckily for you, there are a number of effective ways to be able to do so.

Daily consumption of green and leafy vegetables will also help.
