Lifestyle modification

Sexual function is influenced by your overall wellbeing. Erection problems can be a sign that you are not giving enough attention to a healthy lifestyle. It can also be the first symptom of more serious conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and prostate cancer. Below are some things you could do that can be a great erection help, and at the same time lower your risk of many other serious conditions.

Stop smoking. Smoking hardens the arteries, including those that supply blood to the penis. This can limit the flow of blood and cause your failures in bed. Stop smoking if you want your erections back.

Increase the amount you exercise. Exercise improves blood circulation, builds strength and stamina, lifts mood and relieves stress. This will benefit your sex life, as well as your overall health and wellbeing.

Improve your diet. Food is your body’s fuel. You can’t expect your body to function properly if you don’t supply it with the foods it needs.

Moderate alcohol consumption. Alcohol can cause and worsen erection problems.

Manage stress. Stress and overwork are culprits of many problems. Erection treatments can’t do much if you are constantly exhausted, don’t get enough sleep etc – especially if these issues cause tension in your relationship.

Psychological treatments for erection problems

Psychological problems need to be addressed if they are the predominant cause of erection problems. If not, drugs are unlikely to restore enjoyable and satisfying sexual intimacy to your relationship. You should learn how to manage stress. This can be a perfect erection help list.

Physical treatments

The most known drugs are Viagra, Levitra and Cialis. But they come with numerous side effects. Because the chemical they act on is only produced when you are aroused, the tablets only give an erection in response to sexual stimulation. We will review these side effects later. For example, it is forbidden to take more than one tablet once a day. They may start working in 2 hours after taking – no immediate effects.

Mechanical aids

Vacuum pump. Plastic chamber that is placed over the penis. Air is extracted using a pump, which allows blood to be drawn more effectively into the penis. After the pump is removed for sex, the erection can be maintained with a constriction ring. Erections should not be maintained for more than 30 minutes.

Semi-rigid penile prosthesis. Surgery to insert flexible rods into the shaft of the penis. The rods are firm enough to allow intercourse. The penis can be bent up for penetration and bent down at other times.

Inflatable penile prosthesis. Surgery to place two cylinders inside the penis, with a pump and fluid reservoir in the scrotum. During intercourse, the pump is activated by squeezing a device in the scrotum. This draws fluid from the reservoir into the cylinders, making the penis hard. After sex a valve is pressed to allow the fluid to drain back into the reservoir.

Erection oils

There is a MUCH MORE simple erection help. If you need an instant erection, you should take a look at the topical erection oils. Targeted delivery has been recently identified as an emerging alternative to orally administered products mainly due to the current concerns of the side effects that may occur from taking prescription drugs. You can find these oils in our Erection Help review.
