Erectile Dysfunction and Angina

Angina is chest pain that happens because there isn’t enough blood going to part of your heart and restricted blood flow can also mean having problems getting, maintaining, or only having partial erections because the arteries in the penis are narrow and may become clogged.

What’s more, clogged arteries in the penis may be a warning sign of undiagnosed heart disease since if penile arteries are clogged, there’s an increased chance that there are clogged arteries in other parts of the body.

Clogged arteries, known in the medical profession as atherosclerosis, occur when fatty deposits build up along the artery walls impacting blood circulation to the heart and elsewhere in the body.

Men suffering from clogged arteries not only face an increased risk of poor heart health but are also more likely to experience Erectile Dysfunction (ED). And research has shown that there is a strong connection between ED and heart disease.

A man achieves an erection when blood travels to the penile arteries. During an erection these arteries widen and allow blood to travel and stay in the penis. When arteries are blocked by plaque or fatty deposits, it can make it impossible for blood to travel to the penis.

A man achieves an erection when blood travels to the penile arteries. During an erection these arteries widen and allow blood to travel and stay in the penis. When arteries are blocked by plaque or fatty deposits, it can make it impossible for blood to travel to the penis and hence the onset of ED,

A huge number of men who suffer from ED experience early signs of heart disease. The chances of suffering from cardiac issues are significantly higher in ED patients than others who don’t have erection problems. Usually, the symptoms of heart related issues start to appear within two to three years of the appearance of ED symptoms.  

In a paper published by a major heart journal, the authors noted that, “Patients should be systematically screened for ED as a part of periodic examination programs.” (1)

For men, ED can not only ruin their confidence, it’s also a tell-tale sign that they may be suffering from a serious underlying health condition, not only impacting their sexual function, but also greatly increasing the risk of a fatal heart attack or stroke.

Research into this was reported in an Australian population-based study linking questionnaire data from 2006–2009 with hospitalisation and death data to June 2010 for 95,038 men aged 45 years or over, researchers found that more severe erectile dysfunction was associated with higher risk of cardiovascular disease. (2)

Recent studies have indicated that erectile dysfunction preceding heart problems is often due to the dysfunction of the inner lining of the blood vessels (endothelium) and smooth muscle.

Some of the common medicines that are used to treat chronic angina are beta blockers and calcium channel blockers. These medications can also have adverse effects on the erectile function of men. Non-selective beta blockers and calcium channel blockers can reduce the blood flow within penile tissues, decrease sexual urge and reduce erectile rigidity in some men. You always need to be aware of the potential negative side-effects of the medicines that you are taking and discuss these issues with your doctor.

It’s important that any underlying medical condition, such as angina is detected and investigated by your doctor or GP. They will examine you to try to establish the cause of the problem and may refer you for further tests. You shouldn’t take any medicine for ED without first discussing this with your doctor.

We offer much more effective solutions for ED in the form of shockwave therapy and Extracorporeal MagnetoTransduction Therapy (EMTT). Our combined shockwave therapy and EMTT program is extremely effective in treating ED.

Focused shockwave therapy utilises special shockwaves to improve the blood flow within penile tissues and to promote the growth of new blood vessels. This therapy can also break down the plaques inside the blood vessels which can free up the blood pathways and enable better blood flow.

EMTT  improves the blood flow inside the penis, heals the endothelial cells present in the blood vessels and generates new cells through the use of an intense magnetic field. The intensity of this magnetic field can also be adjusted according to the necessity of the condition of the patients.

If you have been taking pills to achieve an erection and are worried that they may be affecting other medical conditions or are no longer working – you should contact us for an online consultation so that we can discuss your condition and recommend a course of focused shockwave therapy that will enable you to achieve an erection without having to revert to them – please take a moment to complete the contact form below and we will get back to you quickly.

Erectile Dysfunction and Angina FAQ's

Angina is chest pain which is caused by a lack of blood flow to the heart. Angina itself is not a life-threatening issue but it can be a major warning sign of potential severe heart issues like stroke or heart attack. If you are experiencing such chest pain, then you need to consult a doctor as soon as you can.

Angina itself is not a cause of ED. But these two issues are associated with each other. Angina is an issue which develops due to a lack of blood flow to the heart and the decreased blood flow in the penile tissues can be responsible for ED. Lack of blood supply in the penile tissues can be a warning sign of potential heart related issues.

Angina and ED are highly associated with each other as ED can be a warning sign that the blood circulation is not at its adequate level and that the muscles of the heart are not getting a proper blood supply. So, ED can act as a potential warning sign of future major heart conditions such as heart attack of stroke.

There is a strong possibility that if you suffer from angina, then you may also struggle to achieve and maintain strong erections. As angina usually indicates a lack of proper blood supply in the heart, there is a strong possibility that your penile tissues may also not get enough blood supply in that scenario.

Yes. ED is identified as a warning sign of potential cardiovascular issues. A number of men who suffered from ED reported that they experienced symptoms of major cardiovascular issues in the 2-3 years after the onset of ED symptoms. Moreover, the time period between the onset of ED symptoms and the occurrence of heart disease is predicted to be 3-5 years.

As ED can be a predictor of a potential future heart attack or stroke, it’s better to consult an experienced cardiologist and check your cardiovascular health. It is important to diagnose cardiovascular issues early as then it becomes easier to prevent such life-threatening issues.

Yes. ED can definitely be treated even if you have angina. But if you are suffering from angina, then do not take any ED medications without discussing this with an experienced medical professional. We do not recommend you take any ED medications in this situation, rather we recommend you try such ED treatments that are risk free, such as shockwave therapy.

Yes, over the last 10-years, dozens of men have come to us for the treatment of ED, who also happened to have angina.
