Sexual Health – How To Get And Maintain Erection

 

 

 

 

It is one of those embarrassing moments men face at times in their sex lives. Why I can’t get it up? Why I can’t get hard?

 

There are many reasons why a man may experience erection problems. Although lack of sexual attraction to one’s partner may be one of them, it is actually far more likely to be something else. These problems can be psychological, physical, or a combination of the two.

 

Erectile dysfunction (ED) or problem in achieving erection is often one of the earliest warning signs of other underlying health conditions that can be quite serious. One of the most common underlying health conditions is diabetes. About 35% to 50% of men with diabetes experience erection problems.

 

Erection difficulties can also be a symptom of heart problems such as hypertension (high blood pressure) or atherosclerosis, as well as hormone imbalances and neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. ED can also be caused by certain types of prostrate and bladder surgery.

 

Some prescription drugs, including medications for blood pressure, anxiety and depression can affect sexual performance. For others who are healthy, the difficulty of getting it up can happen to them when they may have emotional problems such as stress, anxiety and depression, or they have unhealthy lifestyle habits such as smoking and drinking alcohol.

 

When erection problem happens, many men make the mistake of trying to buy erectile dysfunction drugs online. By some estimates, more than half of the ED drugs sold online are fakes. Even if a drug contains the right medicine, it may not be the right dosage. When samples of 100-milligram Viagra tablets purchased online were tested, only 10% were even closed to the advertised strength.

 

Some drugs that masquerade as herbal remedies can be dangerous or even life-threatening. Take the drug sildenafil (an active ingredient in Viagra) which is hidden in some natural ED treatments; if you are already using nitrates for heart disease, sildenafil can lead to a dangerous drop in blood pressure.

 

Erection dysfunction drugs such as Cialis, Levitra, Staxyn and Viagra work by increasing blood flow to the penis. Just like any other medicine, these drugs can have side effects. They can be especially dangerous for people with certain conditions, especially heart disease. They can also cause side effects or interact with other medicine you are taking, such as blood thinness and some alpha blockers, which are used to treat high blood pressure and prostrate conditions.

 

Before going for any ED drugs, get a thorough health checkup to find out exactly what is causing your problem. It may turn out that you do not need to take any drugs at all. Health conditions that contribute to ED, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, can be treated. If ED is a side effect of a medicine you are taking, discuss this problem with your doctor.

 

One way to improve bedroom performance is to make some simple lifestyle changes. Kicking the smoking habit, exercising regularly and reducing stress may be all that is needed for some men to cope with ED. For those who require more intensive treatment, adopting these lifestyle changes in addition to other treatments can further help.

 

Talk to your doctor to see if you should try nicotine replacement therapy or if a non-nicotine prescription treatment is right for you. Choose a comprehensive smoking cessation program that does not rely on a single technique. Your doctor can point you in the right direction.

 

To get the most benefit from exercise, you should exercise at least 20 to 30 minutes, preferably at least 5 times a week. Choose an activity that you enjoy, easy to follow and stick with and include this into your daily routine. To prevent boredom, you can add a variety of exercises or join scheduled exercise classes at your local community center.

 

If you avoid having sex for fear of not getting an erection, your partner may feel hurt thinking that she is no longer attractive. Tell her about your problem and reassure her that she is still attractive is essential to both emotional and physical intimacy.

 

For couples who have sexual problems, focus on building emotional intimacy by taking walks together, going out for dinner at a favorite eating outlet, or spending a quiet evening just talking. Once you and your partner feel more intimate on an emotional level, you may find that your sex drive and your erections perk up.

 

When you are in the mood for having sex again, get creative by experimenting with some sex positions or try role playing. When having sex, do not rush because in trying to get an erection quickly it will make you more stressful, increasing the likelihood of not getting it up.

 

It is normal for older men to need more stimulation to help get them aroused than they did when they were younger. Oral sex helps. Vibrating toys can also be used to help a man achieve erection when they are held against his shaft, gland’s head or testicles.

 

Websites and books such as Hot Sex and Get Hard Erection offer valuable advice on how to overcome erection problems and enjoy better sex.
