When it comes to making money as a writer, “You gotta do what you gotta do.” If it means being a woman and writing about erectile dysfunction (ED) for several hours each week, then so be it. This is exactly what I’ve been doing for the past couple of months. I have a client who requests 20 orders a week on ED to post on a blog so now, needless to say, I have learned more than my fair share about ED.
What Exactly Is Erectile Dysfunction?
This unfortunate condition affects more men than most people think. In fact, 40 percent of men who are at least 40 years old have ED, with a whopping 70 percent of men who are at least 70.
When a male suffers from ED, blood cannot properly flow to his penis, thus resulting in the inability to sustain an erection. For some men, they can get somewhat of an erection, but not to the degree or long enough to have intercourse.
What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?
Although there is no primary cause, there are several conditions that physicians and researchers believe contribute to the development of ED, including the following:
- High blood pressure
- Nerve disorders; Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis
- Low testosterone
- Structural problems with the penis and the areas around it
Two Common Disorders That Go Hand in Hand With ED
- Hypersexuality: When a man has such intense urges to satisfy his sexual desires that he will go to almost any length to fulfill them, this is known as hypersexuality. Many times, a man who has this condition will also have ED, which only worsens each illness. He will feel like he has to achieve a release, but he can’t due to having ED.
- Porn-Induced ED: When a man watches too much porn, this can lead to his libido levels being lowered, which ends up decreasing his chances of being able to get an erection.
Both of these disorders can cause mania because a male will have intense urges to have an orgasm, but due to ED, he simply can’t. He will usually become very aggravated, increasing his level of stress, thus worsening both conditions at the same time.
Is There Hope?
As with almost any medical condition, there is hope. From getting a better night’s rest to turning to an experienced ED physician, help comes in many forms.
Being a Medical Writer Is Very Profitable
This same client for whom I write 20 articles a week about ED has also requested that I regularly write articles on palliative care, medical marijuana, and pain management. It has become very obvious to me that there is a high demand for medical writers. If you’re looking for ways to land private clients, consider seeking out local doctors and health care facilities to see whether you can write for their blogs. This is an excellent way to expand your writing endeavors, while at the same time put a little more jingle in your pocket.
