Three Misconceptions about Impotence Demystified


You may think it is embarrassing, you may feel isolated and alone, you may even deny what you are experiencing, but it is time to be honest with yourself and your body; you are experiencing impotence, or more what it is more commonly referred to as, erectile dysfunction.

Did you know that 1 in 4 men experience low levels of testosterone, and that between 15-25% of men experience erectile dysfunction at some point in their lives?

However, because it seems to be taboo to talk openly about erectile dysfunction, many misconceptions and fallacies have circulated about this disorder and its main causes. Here are three mistaken beliefs that cause unnecessary stress for so many men.

  1. AGE = IMPOTENCE. Although the older you get the chances of experiencing ED does increase (i.e-hardening of arteries, weak veins, etc.), just because you get older does not mean you will have trouble in bed. In fact, many times younger men, due to high levels of pressure at work and home life, will experience increased levels of impotence. So young or old, try not to stress, enjoy your partner, and love your life!
  2. UNHAPPY SEX LIFE.  Many men and their partners often associate ED symptoms with dissatisfaction and lack of attraction in the sack. Although external factors, like a relationship can cause heightened levels of stress and anxiety which may affect performance in bed, just because someone is suffering from ED doesn’t mean they are unhappy with their partner or their sex life.
  3. SUPPLEMENTS DO NOT HELP. Supplements should be a go-to natural alternative before an individual tries synthetic pharmaceuticals. Many times these prescription drugs have harmful side effects and contain chemicals that can be very dangerous to consume. HRL’s iCariin50 is an example of a supplement comprised of Horny Goat Weed extract that, when taken in 500 mg daily doses supports against ED and its underlying symptoms.

In reality, ED occurs when a disease that affects blood flow, nerve disease, chronic illness, psychological factors: stress, anxiety, depression, and/or injury to the penis occurs. If you are experiencing ED more than 50% of the time, you should talk to your physician about the most appropriate course of treatment.
