Erectile Dysfunction is the inability to accomplish or maintain and sustain an erection for satisfactory sexual activity. Getting older is not the main reason for this problem, it may happen at any age. It is recommended that you consult a medical practitioner if the symptoms continue for more than three months.
The two chambers of penis (corpora cavernosa,) which run through the organ are filled with spongy tissue. The corpora cavernosa are surrounded by a membrane, called the tunica albuginea. The spongy tissue contains smooth muscles, fibrous tissues, spaces, veins, and arteries. The urethra, which is the channel for urine and semen runs along underside of the corpora cavernosa.
Due to sensory or mental stimulation, or both, the erection begins. Due to impulses from brain and local nerves the muscles of corpora cavernosa relax and allow blood to flow in and fill the spaces of spongy tissue.
The flow of blood creates pressure in the corpora cavernosa, making the penis expand. The tunica albuginea helps trap the blood in the chambers, thereby sustaining erection. When muscles in the penis contract to stop the inflow of blood and open outflow channels, the erection recedes.
Thus an erection in men is a equation of six types of organs -located in the testicles, urinary bladder, phallus, umbilicus, thighs and groin. Its functions are Ejaculation of semen.
