Erectile Dysfunction: Understanding Your Treatment Options

A lengthy explanation of erectile dysfunction (ED) is unnecessary given that the name is a giveaway and that every guy who understands what Viagra is for will surely know what this condition is all about. Now this isn’t to say that you shouldn’t go ahead and read up on ED – what causes it, how many are affected by it, why there are different treatment options for it, and so on. In fact, if there is one thing that male enhancement experts would recommend it’s the continuous study or research about the ED treatment options available to consumers. And if you just want to beat this problem the soonest, then you should be prepared to try the option that you feel is the most effective and poses the least amount of risk to your health.

PDE-5 Inhibitors

Viagra has already been mentioned but no discussion of PDE-5 inhibitors is considered complete without mentioning Cialis and Levitra. The three may not have the same generic names but they all work by increasing the flow of blood into the penis. Viagra (sildenafil) and Levitra (vardenafil) are “on demand” meds, while Cialis (tadalafil) is said to last for up to 36 hours. It is better if you take a PDE-5 inhibitor on an empty stomach and remember not to take more than one tablet within a 24-hour period.

Alprostadil

In cases where Viagra et al do not improve erectile function, a hormone such as alprostadil may be given to help stimulate blood flow to the penis. The problem, however, with alprostadil is the drug delivery system which could be in the form of an injection (to the penis) or a urethral application (placing a small pellet inside the urethra). Needless to say, it’s not as convenient as just taking a pill before intercourse and it takes some training before you can correctly inject or insert alprostadil by yourself.

Male Enhancement Products

Something that you may not immediately consider as an erectile dysfunction treatment option would be penis supplements. And it’s not because these products are not advertised aggressively, quite the opposite as a matter of fact if you happen to notice the amount of internet ads pushing these solutions. The main advantage of male enhancers over prescription drugs is that you can buy these from online stores and you don’t really need to go through all that hassle of seeing a doctor and lining up at a pharmacy. Of course, some would see this as a problem, considering a doctor’s advice is often believed to be worth its weight in gold. If you are keen on trying sex enhancement products, only do so if you don’t have a serious medical condition like a heart problem or diabetes. Also, make sure that you buy only from reputable merchants and those that have received positive reviews from other consumers.

Lifestyle Modifications

Beyond penis pills and doctor-prescribed medications, there are practical tips that you should keep in mind if you want to improve your sexual health. Losing weight, quitting cigarettes and moderating your alcohol intake are just some of those things that can do wonders for your sex life. You can also try reducing stress, eating right, and exercising regularly to get on the fitness track. Remember that anything you do to improve circulation is also good for boosting erectile function.
