Physiology of Erection
Penile erection is mediated by the nervous system, which when stimulated causes vasodilation and relaxation of the cavernosal smooth muscle, which ultimately leads to penile erection. Nitric oxide is released from nerve endings by activating guanylate cyclase, which converts guanosine triphosphate to cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP). cGMP becomes the secondary messenger that causes smooth muscle relaxation, resulting in venous engorgement and penile tumescence.
Testosterone and Sex Drive
As men turn 40, only about 2% of testosterone are free and 98% of testosterone are bound by Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG). Free testosterone is responsible for providing the body with energy, and sex drive. Normal men should have 800 in Free testosterone. Men with <350 in free testosterone will experince erectile dysfunction.
