A recent study proved that there is an association between lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and the degree of impotence in men with symptoms of enlarged prostate or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Impotence an unpleasant and serious condition to manage can sometimes be linked to an enlarged prostate (BPH) condition. Still it does not mean that a man’s ED is linked to his prostate enlargement. There are lots of potential causes of impotence including physical or psychological or both at once. Sexual activity demands the brain and different organs of the body cooperate if emotional or relationship difficulties can cause or worsen impotence.
Among physical causes of ED stays prostate surgery or treatment after this manipulation. Some prostate cancer treatments may affect the nerves or arteries responsible for erections; others may affect sex desire.
Men often do not feel easy talking about the prostate, because it has a significant role in sex and urination. But the enlargement of the prostate is a typical part of ageing. BPH symptoms include the sudden urge to urinate, increased urination especially at night, weak stream, this happens because of the obstruction process in the urethra and progressive loss of bladder function. Sometimes impotence can also be a sign of BPH but it may be either caused by a psychological or other physical problem.
