There’s a problem that many couples deal with and are often too ashamed to talk about. It’s often called impotence, the inability to “get it up”, or Erectile Dysfunction (ED). No matter how you refer to it, these terms are used to describe when a man has trouble getting or keeping an erection long enough to complete sexual intercourse through orgasm.
Unfortunately, there’s often a stigma attached to issues involving a man’s sexual performance. Most couples who deal with this issue don’t talk about it. That’s why you probably didn’t know that about 30 million men struggle with ED, and it’s one of the most common problems men report to their doctor.
In fact, ED and orgasmic dysfunction is on the rise in younger generations with an estimate of one in four millennial men facing erectile issues. Many men are able to orgasm when on their own, but not necessarily when a partner is present. This can and often does place stress on a relationship, sometimes resulting in a loss of intimacy.
Why Does ED occur?
To understand why an erection may not happen - let’s first talk about how an erection does happen. When a man is sexually aroused, an increased amount of blood flows into the penis. The sponge-like tissues inside the penis trap blood – making it nice and firm. After an orgasm, the blood is released back into circulation, and the firmness (the erection) dissipates.
So why is it that some men find it a challenge to keep an erection? The most common causes for Erectile Dysfunction are often stress, poor health, or side effects from prescription medicines.
Lifestyle choices can also have an impact on sexual health. For example, smoking, recreational drugs, alcohol, lack of exercise, excessive porn consumption, and being extremely overweight can all contribute to ED – and some can potentially even have a negative effect on sperm health.
Regardless of what is causing your ED, for some, the emotional impact can be serious. Many men get depressed, or lose their self-esteem. It can also put a lot of stress on their partner and relationship.
How Can Mosie Help with ED?
The pressure of trying to conceive can be a factor in ED. For example, needing to have sex during that short fertile window – whether or not it’s a good time – or you’re in the mood – can cause performance anxiety. The pressure to “do it” at a specific time is stress inducing for some men. Even for couples that aren’t dealing with ED, trying to conceive month after month on a certain date and time is so not sexy!
That’s where Mosie can help.

Mosie has helped many couples who struggled with performance anxiety and erectile issues get pregnant – take a look at a success story from a brave couple in Mosie community who wanted to share their story to help others.
For some men, ED is only a temporary or sporadic condition and is completely normal. But, if it becomes more of a regular issue, or gets worse over time, it’s important to see your doctor.
ED could also be a symptom of a more serious health issue - like heart disease, or high blood pressure. Your doctor can help you figure out if your ED is being caused by a medical condition or an emotional one.
