Erectile Dysfunction, Mental Health & Wellbeing | Kati Morton | Kati Morton


– Hey everybody! Happy Thursday. Now today, I’m gonna talk with you
about erectile dysfunction and your mental health. It’s a topic that we don’t
discuss often enough. So, let’s talk about it. (upbeat music) This video’s brought to
you by Canada Pharmacy. I know that prescription
medication can be super expensive. I heard from many of you that the cost of your
medications is prohibitive, meaning that you either, can’t pick up the prescription because it doesn’t fit your budget, or it really limits what
else you can do in your life, because the cost is so high. And so, Canada Pharmacy offers
a cost-effective alternative. Canada Pharmacy is a
fully-licensed pharmacy, and they are accredited by the CIPA, which really just means
that you have to have a valid prescription in order
to get it filled through them. Let’s start off this video by
defining erectile dysfunction. I feel like people talk about it, but no one really defines it. Erectile dysfunction is, technically, the inability to get or keep an erection that’s firm enough for sex. And this can also mean that we have an extremely lowered sex drive. And erectile dysfunction can be caused by a lot of different things. I made a whole list. Could be heart disease, high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood
pressure, weight gain, even a clogged blood vessel. So, it’s really important, that if you’re struggling with this, if you used to be able to
get an erection and keep it, and have a healthy, happy sex life, and now you’re really struggling, it’s really important that
you talk to your doctor, because this could be a
symptom of something bigger. And I also want to address the fact that erectile dysfunction
can be a side effect of medication. So if that’s something
you’re experiencing, let’s say you’ve changed medication, or you’ve gone to a, from a branded to a generic, talk to your doctor. Let them know. There’s nothing to be ashamed of. Erectile dysfunction can also be a symptom of a mental illness. I’ve heard from many of you who struggle with depression and anxiety, or even have had a sexual trauma, or abuse in your past, any of those can cause us to struggle to get and keep an erection. The most important component
to erectile dysfunction, to me, is that people don’t
feel safe to talk about it. There’s a lot of embarrassment and shame associated with it. Many of my male viewers have said that it makes them feel
like, maybe, less of a man, or like, they can’t please their mate, and then they’re worried
they’re gonna leave them. And so it’s so important that
we start talking about it. Because, like I said, it’s really common, and there are a million different causes. And so that’s why it’s important that we talk with our doctor, figure out where it’s coming from, what else we can do to help it, and make sure that we keep our partner in the loop all the time, so they know what’s going on, and they don’t maybe think that
you’re just not interested, or that you’re not
attracted to them anymore. We wanna make sure they’re
part of our overall process. That’s why I would encourage you, if you have the ability, to go to see a counselor or
a therapist in your area, with your loved one, because that way, it offers a safe space for
you to have the conversation, that maybe we’re too
embarrassed to have at home. And the tricky thing about
erectile dysfunction is it can be caused by a mental illness, meaning that our depression or anxiety’s making it
really difficult for us, or, in turn, it can
cause a mental illness. I read a ton of blogs, doing
research for this video, where people talked about how horribly things have gone for them since they’ve been struggling
with erectile dysfunction. How their relationship took a turn, and now they’re in therapy
because they are so depressed. And so it’s so important
that we just communicate. We talk to people in our
lives who this affects, and we talk to our medical and
mental health professionals. Once we’ve had that
appointment with our doctor, and we figure out where
our erectile dysfunction is coming from, there are many medications, ask your doctor which one’s right for you, but there are many medications
that can help with it. I’m sure you’ve heard of them, like Viagra, Cialis, all of those. That’s why I partnered
with Canada Pharmacy. You wanna click the

you’re struggling with, know that you’re not alone. And know that we’re all professionals. If you’re gonna see a doctor, a therapist, or even a dietician, anybody in your area, know that this isn’t anything
to be embarrassed about. We hear about it all the time, and we’re hear to help, to listen, to understand your situation, so that we can offer you the best support. One of the main reasons why I wanted to partner with Canada
Pharmacy on this video, is because it offers anonymity. You can be at home, on your computer, and place your order, and it comes to your door. You don’t have to go into a pharmacy and wait for them to call your name, and hope that no one
sees what you’re getting, or talking to the pharmacist about it. This allows another
level of confidentiality, and just helping you feel, maybe, a little more at ease about it. I hope you found this video helpful. If this is something that
you’re struggling with, I hope you’ll take my advice, and you’ll make an appointment
to see your doctor, as well as a therapist, so you can figure out
where it’s coming from, and you can get the help
that you need and deserve. And thank you again to Canada Pharmacy. Click the link in the description, and use the coupon code kati50 for $50 off your first order. Thank you so much for watching, and I will see you next time! Bye!

  1. First!

    Hi Kati, great video!

    I was wondering if you could talk about preparing for the loss of a loved one? I'm currently taking care of my father who is suffering from pancreatic cancer and going to pass soon, probably before Christmas. It's physically and mentally draining. I feel like I should prepare for the inevitable, but I don't know where to begin and I still have a tendency to avoid thinking about it. How do I do this?

  2. You are amazing! You simplify everything and make people feel okay…normal…when they hear you talk about something that might be happening in their life.
    Lots of love and keep up the great work 😀 <3

  3. I'm 6'1" an 280lbs
    My Dr. Told me to lose weight that was my problem I do have low testosterone I had to check with the doctor
    VA Doctor

  4. I love the way you professionally explain any topic in a very open way. ♡
    It would be great if you could make a video about asexuality or especially sex-repulsion.
    I've never had any sexual experiences but the thought of a human (no matter the gender) seeing me naked, kissing me or even touching my naked skin makes me want to vomit. Is that simply asexuality or could this be part of mental problems?

  5. Hi Kati, I'm so sorry to comment here as it has nothing to do with this video. But I just watched a YTer who lives in Houston and vlogged about her experience and I realized how many people are going to be suffering from PTSD from #hurricaneharvey. I've already made donations for people and animals, but I would like to donate to something reputable specifically regarding mental health services for people who have been impacted by Harvey. After watching her video this video popped up, and I thought maybe you might have resources to find out. ? I will do my own research as well but in the spur of the moment I saw this video and I was compelled to reach out and at least ask. Thank you regardless!

  6. I'm glad you made this video. I would've never seen a doctor about this because of true embarrassment. It's a touchy subject but im glad you made it feel normal.

  7. Here's what I've noticed about erectile dysfunction with the men who confided me about it:
    Most times it isn't a dysfunction, guy just doesn't want to have sex right then, maybe the woman pissed him off, or he's depressed, stressed, tired and he's trying to brave off those things and failed, and they are used to brave those things off, they are trained to brave those things off, but as one gets older (or if the situation is less serious) the willingness to overcome something one is not supposed to overcome dies off.
    Same thing with delayed ejaculation, god, even premature ejaculation is usually nothing but the guy over compensating for the fact that he's not in the mood.

    And the reality is, yeah, it affects negatively womens perspective on a man saying no even once to a woman, but what's overblown is how important that negative perspective is.
    And part of the fault is on the men, as they love to lie about how they want it all the time because they love the positive attention from women they get from telling that lie, and certainly love to partake in passive aggressive pissing contests against each other.
    A problem both sexes, any gender suffers from.
    Now, I understand how important it's to overcome sometimes, but guys over do it and girls under do it, there's a healthy medium.

  8. (I'm not an expert) I know that stress reduces testosterone levels, and low testosterone is one cause of erectile dysfunction and low libido. I'm not sure of the exact way stress reduces testosterone levels, but it could be similar to the way testosterone levels reduce in men who take steroids to enhance performance and build muscles: when we are stressed the pituatory gland triggers the adrenal glands of the kidneys to release cortisol (a stress hormone). Cortisol also acts as a steroid hormone with similar effects to testosterone – this can be seen in women who have cushings disease as they have hairy bodies and male fat distribution – so it could be that the body reacts by reducing testosterone production to keep overall steroid levels stable – the side effect from chronic stress (and certainly chronic steroid use) is that testosterone levels become normalised to a lower level. From what I've seen things that reduce stress and raise oxytocin levels like exercise (in men) can lower cortisol levels. I think in a resting state a man's oxytocin levels are lower than a female's but I don't know if that is related to stress levels? I've seen studies on rats that have shown male rats who exercise more have higher oxytocin levels and that they are more likely to mate. That's just my amateur assessment anyway. I left another comment yay!

  9. Hi Kati
    I have questions, is it weird to not want to fix your "problems" because you feel like you will lose a part of you? I feel like if I get better i won't need to go to therapy and then I'll have no one, no one to be there and actually help me.
    Also when I feel myself having fun I suddenly feel a wave of sad come over me and I feel the need to be sad. Why does this happen? Should I be worried?

    Keep up the great work.-skye❤️

  10. This channel is such a great resource and it's been incredibly helpful to me over the years. Nowadays I'm more here for my intellectual curiosity and interest in psychology but when I have friends who are struggling I often refer them to one or another of your videos to provide explanations that I'm not necessarily qualified to provide. Out of curiosity, would you ever refer your own clients to your channel or is it something you keep separate? And if so how do you find a balance between having an online personality/following and keeping healthy relationships with clients? There was a time when I wanted to share things that I've learned from experience in order to help people, but as I've studied more and done voluntary work I've been warned a lot about maintaining privacy and not sharing anything online so that I can be more effective, which I of course understand and I know you don't really share details of your private life but it's something that interests me a lot. Like how do you know what is and isn't okay to put on the internet given that a client might have access to it?

  11. I would love for there to be more talk about the sexual dysfunction of women and mental/ emotional issues. I feel as though the sexuality of women is highly ignored in healthcare.

  12. I'm really glad you're a female talking about this issue, because I feel like a lot of women dismiss erectile dysfunction as not really a big deal, but it totally is. There is nothing wrong with wanting a healthy sex life, and if you have an issue that prohibits from having one, you should definitely get treatment for it.

  13. Years ago I talked to one guy that I was studying chemistry when both of us went to the University of California Santa Cruz, or UCSC. This one guy told me years ago that he used to smoke marijuana to deal with his depression. Then he go married and started using antidepressants. He told me that antidepressants caused Erectile dysfunctio. He told me that he wanted an antidepressant that did not cause erectile dysfunction. I do not blame him for telling me.

  14. I think the only thing that turns me on is space and the great unknown. Yet, apart from my brother and my dad, I don't think I have had a single conversation about it with anybody in nearly 40 years! (I don't get sexually aroused by it – I mean mentally stimulated :P). It's as though beyond our atmosphere doesn't exist! Does our atmosphere even exist!? – the nearest I have gotten to talking about that was at high altitude asking a friend to move their hand about to see if they could still feel the air they were breathing..

  15. Hi Kati,
    Can you answer how to deal with being married to a recovering alcoholic? My husband is recovering and it's been really difficult for me to deal with. He's only been sober for 2 months and he's slipped once but he won't go to AA meetings. Can you answer how to deal with the alcoholism?

  16. Wow the quality of the image and the sleek black background ! 🙂 It's so beautiful ! Also thank you for always explaining things so clearly

  17. Hi Kati, I just found your channel yesterday and it has inspired me to make an appointment with a therapist Friday for the first time to get through what I know was an extremely emotionally abusive relationship with my stepmother.

    I know you say we should distance ourselves if we know a relationship would hurt us more, which I have for the last five years, however, I have younger half siblings and as they grow older I am faced with the dilemma of having to see her when they make milestones in their life like graduating high school.

    My question is what advice do you (or anyone else in the comments section) have when you have to be in a situation where you would see the person that had emotionally abused you in a public setting without making it uncomfortable for my younger siblings.

    Thank you

  18. I know my comment isn't relevant to this video but I don't really care because this community is awesome! I think that self diagnosing is a bit pointless because it can only make someone assume that they have a problem when they really don't. Anyways I genuinely think that I have some serious Issues and that I am potentially a danger to family, friends and others around me (Doesn't really matter who they are). I intend to tell my mom that I would like to get some professional help but my only concern is that if I talk to a Therapist, will they tell me that the only thing wrong with me is that I simply have bad thoughts when I do believe that there is a greater reason behind the way that I am? I don't want to be told this and then continue to know that there is a deeper problem. I also don't want to Diagnose myself because I'm no therapist. I dont really know what im trying to ask but if anyone can respond with anything helpful, that would be great.
    I could give my life story and how things have progressed but its kind of a long story as it starts when I was about 5.
    Also I love the videos! they've been helpful so far to me.

  19. I have an psychotherapy assessment coming up soon, could you explain what this is and how this could help. Thank you

  20. Limp dick. Many men who have been circumcised suffer vastly more from this. Do not circumcise its barbaric. Don't think so? Watch one being done on a baby and you will change your mind.

  21. I just noticed that I left my comment on the wrong page. The first time I called Canada Pharmacy, they told me that your code: Kati50/fifty(?) was not on the list. Today when I called they said I would need your Customer ID number to look up the discount. I was told this would not impinge on your private account. What's going on Kati, this isn't funny. Thanks, Gale M. Green [email protected]

  22. Interesting techniques, very interesting, and yeah there are many ways to fix erectile dysfunction and get hard at will. It's about cascading your body with those male hormones that stimulate your true virility. This way you can get gigantic pulsating erections, like it should be. Everything is explained in Mario Volpstein's website.

  23. I suffer from Major Depressive Disorder and take a laundry list of meds that have resulted in ED and it's killing me mentally because I need the meds to function 🙁

  24. people constantly telling you not to be embarrassed about something makes you feel embarrassed about it if you weren't before

  25. Nope, not helpful. I've battled with ED for most of my adult life, and it is debilitating to the point where I'm terrified to even start a relationship with a woman, while also massively lowering my self-esteem as a man. It adds to my existing depression & anxiety, as well. Women never understand ED, and you're obviously no exception because it is mostly mental unless you have some underlying condition. It's way more harmful to the male psyche than women realize.

  26. So as to accomplish a far more spicy action in the bedroom, I suggest you utilize this erectile dysfunction treatment plan “Tubοbο Weebly” (Google it). My girlfriend could not ask for more satisfaction than what I`m providing her. According to her, I`ve pleased here more than what she`s anticipating. The manual I`m using now truly helped me a lot. Excellent product with absolutely awesome results…

  27. Oral phentolamine mesylate (brand names Vasomax, Vigamed) and sublingual apomorphine hydrochloride (brand names Uprima, Zyprima) are two excellent drugs that should be more easily available in the west. They are both approved ED treatments in several countries and there are studies that show their efficacy and safety. Let's hope Canada Pharmacy will market them soon!
