Ayurveda definition of Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction on 31 May , 2015

Erectile dysfunction or ED is the inability of a man to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for his sexual needs or the needs of his partner. This means the  penis does not get or stay hard enough to perform sexual intercourse. The person’s sex drive may be normal. But he may not be able to start or finish intercourse.

Ayurveda defines Erectile dysfunction or ED as follows.

Sankalpapravano nityam priyaam vashyaamapi sthreeyam ||
na yaathi lingashaithilyaath kadaachidyaathi vaa yadi |
Shwaasaarthaha swinnagaatrshcha moghasankalpacheshtitaha ||
mlaanashishnashcha nirbeejaha syodetat klaibyalaxanam |

This means even though a man has a strong desire to perform sexual act with a cooperative partner , he can not perform sexual act because of looseness (absence of erection ) of his phallus or penis. Even if he performs sexual act with his determined efforts he does not get erection and gets afflicted with tiredness , perspiration and frustrations to perform sex
