Improve Your Sexual Health Naturally
Erectile dysfunction is a topic that a lot of men don’t like to talk about. Men who suffer with this condition end up taking a variety of pills and natural supplements in the hopes that this issue can be resolved. However, the problem is that sometimes these medications don’t work as well as the men hope, or men end up suffering from a variety of negative side effects that can impact their lives. This means that you need to find a natural solution that can help you resolve the erectile dysfunction that you are suffering from. By reading on, you can learn all about erections and erectile dysfunction, as well as what you can do about this problem.
What is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction, which is often just simply known as ED, is when you have an inability to either get or keep an erection firm enough for you to have sexual intercourse. Sometimes this is also referred to as impotence, but people are starting to stray away from using this term to describe this condition. What’s important to know is that it is normal for men to suffer from occasional erectile dysfunction, particularly during times when they are stressed out. The issue becomes when you suffer from frequent erectile dysfunction, which may signal a more serious problem or requires treatment.
There are a few different reasons why a man may suffer from erectile dysfunction, including:
- If the nerves in the penis are harmed or there is limited blood flow to the penis.
- Emotional reasons or stress
- Warning signs of potentially more serious conditions including heart disease, high blood sugar from diabetes, high blood pressure, or atherosclerosis (hardening/blocked arteries).
The process for arousal in men is highly complicated involving the various aspects of the body. Erectile function could be as a result of any number of these moving parts not working together. Or it could be as the result of a combination of various physical and psychological issues. These matters can be made worse by anxiety caused by erectile dysfunction, which can lead to even more issues with your ability to have an erection.
There are many causes that can contribute to your erectile dysfunction, such as:
- Increased age
- High blood pressure (hypertension)
- Sleep disorders
- Relationship problems
- Peyronie’s disease, a disease that causes the development of scar tissue in the penis
- Damage to the pelvic area
There are risk factors that can potentially contribute to having erectile dysfunction, including:
- Certain medical conditions, such as heart conditions or diabetes.
- Using tobacco products, as these products can restrict the blood flow to the arteries and veins, as well as potentially lead to chronic conditions that could cause erectile dysfunction.
- If you are overweight, especially if you are obese.
- Medical treatments such as radiation treatment or prostate surgery.
- Certain injuries, especially ones that damage the arteries or nerves that control erections.
- Certain medications such as medications to treat high blood pressure or prostate conditions, antihistamines, and antidepressants.
- Certain psychological conditions including depression, anxiety, and stress.
- Drug and alcohol use, especially if you abuse these substances.
When should you see a doctor? You should see a doctor as soon as you are concerned about suffering from frequent erectile dysfunction. You should see a doctor if:
- You have concerned about the frequency of your erectile dysfunction issues, or you notice other sexual problems such as premature or delayed ejaculation.
- Have a health condition that may cause erectile dysfunction
- You notice other symptoms in addition to the erectile disfunction.
Medical professionals are here to help you if you are concerned about your erectile dysfunction.
What Causes an Erection?
What causes an erection? How do erections work? This is a highly complicated process that takes place in the body. When sexual arousal occurs, the nerves end up releasing chemicals that will start to increase the blood flow to the penis. This blood will flow into two different erection chambers within the penis, known as the corpus cavernosum and is a spongy muscle tissue. These chambers are not hollow.
When the erection occurs, the spongy muscle tissues in the penis will relax and start to trap blood. As the blood pressure in these chambers rise, these chambers make the penis firm and causes the erection. Once a man orgasms, there is a second set of nerve signals which will reach the penis and then cause the muscle tissues in the penis contract and release the blood back into circulation. This leads to the erection going down.
When Will I See Results?
There are at-home tools that you can use that can help to resolve your sexual health issues in a natural way, without using medications that offer negative side effects. For instance, an at-home acoustic device that works by using acoustic soundwaves. These devices can be used on the various parts of the penis in order to optimize performance in a natural manner.
What’s unique about these acoustic soundwaves is not only the technology used by them but also the fact that the protocols are specifically tailored to the individual patient using the device. These protocols ensure that you get optimized results for your specific needs.
The technology for these devices uses the acoustic soundwave technology to increase the blood flow to the penis, activates the growth of new nerve tissue in the penis, and stimulates the growth of new blood vessels in the treated areas. These are all things that can help improve your sexual performance in a natural way.
A common question that people often have when using these products is how long it will take before they see results. There is no definitive answer to this question. If you have milder symptoms, you will start seeing the results sooner than you would if you had a more serious case. For the most part, users of these devices will start to see results within the first 90 days of using these products.
Erectile Dysfunction Symptoms
Erectile dysfunction causes a man to be unable to get or keep an erection that will be firm enough to have sex. As the erectile dysfunction becomes more frequent, this means that it’s time to take this problem serious and seek out medical attention.
Occasional erectile dysfunction should not be something that really concerns you, but if you notice this problem frequently, you should seek out a medical professional. Frequent erectile dysfunction could be a major warning sign that you are suffering from cardiovascular disease as this can indicate that there are blockages developing within the man’s vascular system. Men who have erectile dysfunction are at a higher and more significant risk of having a stroke, heart attack, or suffer from circulatory problems in the legs. Erectile dysfunction can cause other problems, such as:
- Distress for both the man and their partner
- Low self-esteem
Men who suffer from regular erectile dysfunction may suffer from the following symptoms:
- Trouble getting an erection
- Having difficulties maintaining an erection during sexual intercourse and other sexual activities with their partner.
- Reduction in the interest of having sex/participating in sexual activities
In addition to suffering from erectile dysfunction, men may also suffer from other sexual disorders that may be related to ED, such as:
- Premature ejaculation
- Inability to achieve an orgasm even after ample stimulation, also known as anorgasmia.
- Delayed ejaculation
If you are suffering from any of these conditions, particularly if you’ve been experiencing them for 3 or more months, you should speak to a doctor. The doctor will help you determine whether or not your symptoms are due to some underlying medical condition that will require treatment to improve your sexual function.
To determine whether or not you have ED and if there are underlying conditions causing this problem, the doctor will go through several steps to find out the cause of your problem. The doctor will start with a physical exam, where the doctor will check your blood pressure, examine your heart and lungs, and then examine your testicles and penis. They may even perform a prostate exam.
The doctor will also perform a psychosocial history, where they provide you with a questionnaire to answer to help determine whether or not you have ED and how severe the problem is. Then they will perform a variety of diagnostic tests including an ultrasound and NPT (Nocturnal Penile Tumescence) test.
These tests are important in helping the doctor determine if there are any underlying conditions causing this problem and to figure out the best treatment approach for you.
Men’s bedroom performance has a significant impact on their confidence and self-esteem. By getting the help that you need to overcome this problem, you can not only get it up but also strengthen your erections.
