Impotence is something that men would shame of. Google is not the best way to solve your problem unless you seek a doctor for impotence test.
Before any further test required to check for your impotence, few uncomfortable questions will be asked by your doctor. When did it start? How long has it been worrying you? Do you get morning erections? Do you get erections at night? Do you masturbate? Do you get erections with other women but not your wife?
Your treatment will be vary according to what you tell the doctor, and what they find after examining you.
Your doctor will examine you thoroughly. Instead of examine your general health, certain important parts should be checked to get the clue to the cause of your impotence.
If you have Peyronie’s disease (abnormal bend in the penis that occurs during erection), then you may have small lumps or bumps which feel a bit like cartilage along the shaft of the penis.
Soft or small testicles suggest a hormonal problem.
Your prostate gland sits at the base of your bladder, but it can only be felt through your anus. If it is enlarged and/or hard, it could be a sign of a condition called benign prostatic hypertrophy, in which the prostate gradually and painlessly enlarges, or of prostate cancer or of prostatitis, an infection of the prostate. It can cause premature ejaculation, although not impotence.
- Blood pressure
High blood pressure suggests your arteries might not be in prime condition. If the arteries to your penis are affected by the hardening that affect others, then blood flow to your penis might suffer. High blood pressure can also suggest that you are taking blood pressure tablets, even you forgotten to say so.
If your pulses are strong in your groin and legs, then it is unlikely that your arteries are causing you any problem. But if your pulses are weak or even missing, it gives a clue as to what may be causing your impotence.
If your reflexes are normal, then the nerves to your penis are probably normal. If they are not, there may be a problem.
Your skin can be quite revealing as to what is going on inside. For example, many signs of liver disease show up in the skin, such as broken blood vessels and liver spot.
Although there is a lot of variation between individuals, men’s body hair follows a certain pattern which is different to that of women. For example, a man’s pubic hair peaks a little higher in the middle at the top, while a woman’s pubic hair goes flat along the top. A man’s looks slightly like a diamond, while a woman’s looks like a inverted triangle. As well, a man’s hair tends to recede a little (or a lot) over the temples, while a woman’s hair does not. If you have a female pattern of body hair rather than a male pattern, it can be a sign of either hormonal problem or of severe liver disease.
Doctors approach impotence differently, and while some will want to test everything, others believe that a couple of simple tests is sufficient. As well, what tests you have depends on what seems to be the problem.
