Male Erection Problems and How To Overcome Them
There comes a time in every man's life when he must come to grips
with the fact that his penis is sometimes reluctant to respond. This is the time
where a man’s self-esteem is most vulnerable.

Erection problems are extremely common among adult men. In truth, nearly
all men experience occasional difficulty getting it hard or maintaining
it. In several cases, it is a temporary condition that will go away with
little or no treatment at all.
However, in other cases, it may be an ongoing
problem that may eventually damage a man's self esteem and harm his
relationship with his partner. In such cases, immediate treatment is required.
So just how would you know if you have a problem? Well if you have
difficulty either having or keeping an erection for over 25% of the
time, then it is a problem. When the
problem is not temporary or does not go away on its own, physical factors
are often the cause.
First Ever Scientific Clinical Study of Herbal Erection Enhancement
Erection problems, commonly known as erectile dysfunction or impotence,
refers to a man’s inability to achieve satisfactory erections suitable
for sexual intercourse. This is common to about 25% of the male
population. Men who are experiencing repeated impotence tend to be
middle aged men, mostly at or over the age of 60.. The problem may derive
from a variety of causes, but aging is the most common factor in
erectile dysfunction associated with the decrease in male hormones. For
about 20% of sufferers the problem is psychological. While one third is
due to physically related diseases and the remainder is the combination
of both causes.
In the past few
years, the medical community has been committed to enhancing
treatments for erectile dysfunction through a wide range of
Various solutions have emerged from these research efforts
ranging from the prescription drugs,
Viagra, Cialis, Levitra
herbal, non-prescription alternatives that are free of
any side effects.
Just like in any other ailment, when a person begins having this problem
continually, physical examination is the first step in the treatment
process. This is done to rule out injury, side effects from medicine or
diseases and disorders such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high
cholesterol, kidney disease, alcoholism, or multiple sclerosis.
A considerable part of the evaluation includes a detailed patient
history that can give the doctor virtual clues regarding the patient's
condition and the severity of the condition. Treatments should be
tailored to the individual, with the severity and cause taken into
In the past, treatments would possibly include penile injections, vacuum devices
surgery. These days, there are much better treatments. The new Erectile
or Cialis, are commonly prescribed. These are effective but
can sometimes have unpleasant side effects.
Therefore, these need to
be used with caution. In recent times,
products have been developed specifically for
enhancement - these are natural products with no side effects and
have become increasingly popular and gained acceptance in many medical
circles. They have the advantage of being free of side effects and not
requiring prescriptions and are generally effective.
Vacuum pumps are non-drug options. This is a device which creates a vacuum
around the penis that draws blood into the penis and allows it to
engorge, thus causing an erection. However, much care has to be
exercised in the use of pumps, as excessive vacuum can cause serious
damage. Also, having to apply a vacuum pump on the penis just prior to
intercourse is obviously less than satisfactory.
Surgery can be performed in order to restore blood flow to the penile
area if the vasculature (blood vessels) to the area is compromised.
However surgeries have fallen out of favor in recent years because of
the possible risk of infection and other potential complications in such invasive procedures.
Occasionally, there may be some instances when patients are advised to receive some form
of psychotherapy to help alleviate their condition, when it is
determined that the erection difficulties are due to psychological
rather than physiological problems.
