What is erection?
Erection is when your penis gets bigger in size, filled with blood and rigid because of being expanded. For a male it is natural to get an erection after being sexually stimulated. It is healthy for a man to get erections easily and each time he needs it. Besides, there are erections which can be called uncontrollable, they occur in the night or early morning period.
This rigid state of the penis is achieved with the help of the increased amount of blood filling it for the time necessary for sexual contact. The blood remains within the penis because of the special mechanism involving blood vessels trapping and keeping the blood inside.
The penis consists of the two separated parts called:corpora cavernosa and the corpus spongiosum. These parts have a complex system of cells, blood vessels, nerves and tissues.
When the blood comes to the penis, the small penile blood vessels get compressed and keep the blood in the penis and making it remain rigid for the necessary time.
With sexual stimulation the blood stream to the penile organ is increased and the penis becomes larger due to this increased amount of the blood. After the climax the extra blood comes out of the penis and the organ becomes flaccid again.
Any problem getting on the way of the normal erectile process – and a male starts experiencing erectile issues. So, ED happens more than in 25 % of all the efforts to have an erection, a male should consult a doctor.
