Dr Kirti Says

Thank you for your enquiry.

High blood pressure is a major cause of erection problems.

A study has reviled that 49% of men age 40 to 79 with high blood pressure had erectile dysfunction.

Moreover a recent study of men with high blood pressure, found that 68% of them had some degree of erectile dysfunction and in 45% it was considered a severe problem.

When you think of the anatomy of erection you will understand how blood pressure affects erection.

There are 2 spongy tissue chambers in the shaft of the penis called as corpora cavernosa and they are responsible for erection.

This corpora cavernosa is made up of small arteries and veins, smooth muscle fiber and empty chamber.

When there is erection, nerve signals from the brain cause the smooth muscles of the chamber to relax and the arteries dilate and open wide.

This allows a rush of blood to fill the empty spaces. As more blood flows in, the penis expands and stiffens, and you have an erection.

When the excitement ends, the smooth muscle contract, take the pressure off the veins and allow the blood to flow back out of the penis and the penis returns to a flaccid state.

High Blood pressure does not allow the arteries to dilate the way they are supposed to dilate.
Moreover it makes the penis lose its ability to relax. Thus there is not enough blood flow in the penis.
It has been demonstrated that men with high blood pressure have low levels of testosterone. Testosterone plays a very important role in sexual arousal.
Furthermore the drugs used for treating high blood pressure can be the cause of erectile dysfunction as well.
In a routine practice it is seen that smoking increases blood pressure, damages blood vessels and reduces blood flow all around the body.
However the power to control your blood pressure and your sexual health is in your hands. 
By flowing a healthy diet and lifestyle and consuming good herbal supplements can help to have a normal sexual function.
