5 Tips For Coping With Erection Problems
Erectile dysfunction is to my personal opinion one of the men’s most feared issue. What a man doesn’t want to befall him is to pursue a woman for a long period of time and then finally land her only for his erection to fail him at the most important moment. I don’t know a man that can calmly handle that type of situation’ Even thought this may seem to be an extreme and rare case, yet it does happen. I myself have experienced such a thing and that is why I am sharing it here in this blog post. Maybe you too can learn something out of it. Let’s get started on how you can cope when your erections fail you before or duting a sexual intercourse.
Men often struggle with erection problems, particularly when they can’t get and maintain a penile erection. This condition, which is most common in older men or those with health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes or high blood pressure, can have significant effects on a man’s sex life.
While a physical health issue can be the cause of erectile dysfunction, it’s not uncommon for mental and emotional factors to contribute to ED symptoms as well. Here are 5 tips by which you can cope and address your sexual performance problems especially when you can’t get and maintain a penile or ejaculatory erection:
1. Talk About Your Erection Problems
This is a psychological form of therapy. Talking with someone you trust about your problems lifts a huge burden off your chest. Talking about your sexual performance problems is an important step to dealing with ED. It can help you get relief from stress, anxiety or depression that might be causing your problems and may give you new tools to use when you’re intimate. Furthermore, the person you revealed your sexual secret to may even be in a position to suggest possible remedies. One never knows.
When I was young, my grandfather used to say that “if you have a problem and you keep quiet about it even from your closest loved ones, that problem will also be quiet to your loved ones. If you speak out, the problem will also speak out and those who love you will see and understand your problem and rally around you to find a solution.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get or keep a penile erection that’s firm enough for sex. It happens in tens of millions of men in the US alone, and hundreds of millions worldwide.
ED often occurs in conjunction with other health issues, such as diabetes or heart disease. It might also be a sign of a medication you’re taking that isn’t working well.
If your ED is linked to a medical problem, it’s a good idea to see your doctor as soon as possible. They might suggest lifestyle changes, medication or other treatments to relieve your symptoms.
You might want to consider therapy if you have problems with your sexual performance that are impacting your life and affecting your partner’s relationship. During therapy, a trained professional can teach you to manage your concerns and overcome any anxiety you might be feeling about your performance.
Many men feel self-conscious and self-critical while they are intimate. This “performance” mindset can lead to anxiety and heightened tension, which in turn can make it difficult for them to get or maintain an erection.
When you’re talking about ED with your partner, it’s important to remember that this is an issue that’s common and doesn’t have to be a secret. By bringing it up in an open way, you can avoid any awkward moments and help your partner learn about this common ailment. It will also help them understand that you don’t take it personally, and you’re willing to work together to solve your erection problems.
2. Perform Exercises On A Regular Basis
One of the best ways to cope with erectile dysfunction problems is by exercising. Exercise can help you build muscle, strengthen your heart and improve your blood flow.
It also reduces your risk of erectile dysfunction and helps you feel better. It can even help you lose weight and control your blood pressure.
Men with ED should get moderate-to-vigorous-intensity physical activity for at least 150 to 160 minutes per week. This can be done by going to the gym, doing a variety of exercises at home, or taking part in activities that require movement, such as walking, running, swimming and cycling.
Kegel exercises, or pelvic floor exercises, are effective in addressing ED because they target the bulbocavernosus muscles that surround your penis. These muscles keep the penis from engorged with blood during an erection, pump during ejaculation and empty the urethra after urinating.
To perform the exercise, lie on your back with your knees comfortably bent and your feet flat on the floor. Draw your penis inwards towards your body and hold for five seconds, then release it. Squeeze your anus muscles as if you are trying to stop a bowel movement, hold for five seconds, then release it. Repeat the exercise, eight to 10 times, and do three to five sets.
It is important to find an exercise program that you enjoy doing and stick with it. If you do, you are more likely to continue it and make positive life changes. Some good options are karate, ballet, gymnastics, and yoga. If you need more motivation, consider joining a gym or an exercise club with other members who are also working on a healthy lifestyle.
3. Change Your Diet And Eat Healthy Foods
The food you eat or the kind of beverage you drink may be either a make or break situation for your sex life as a man. Eat healthy, you live healthy. That’s about the whole situation. Let’s move forward. Men who experience ED should try to treat these conditions and improve their overall health by eating healthy, exercising regularly, and managing stress. They should also avoid smoking and alcohol.
A man should eat a balanced diet that includes foods that increase his body’s production of nitric oxide, which helps blood flow to the penis and arteries. Foods like salmon, spinach and watermelon contain this nutrient.
Nitric oxide is a precursor to another hormone called nitric acid, which increases blood flow and makes it easier for the body to achieve a hard erection. It’s best to eat these foods after sexual stimulation to get the maximum benefits, but you can also enjoy them before you go on a date to make sure your erections are stronger.
A Mediterranean diet, which includes fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, olive oil and fish, is also a popular choice for those who have trouble getting an erection. In addition to improving a man’s sexual performance, a diet like this can also lower his risk of heart disease and other health issues.
4. Take Erection Enhancement Medications And/Or Supplements
If you’ve tried changing your diet and exercise habits but are still not able to get or keep a firm erection, you may want to consider taking medications. Medications can help you improve your sexual performance and alleviate symptoms of ED.
Medicines for ED can be taken by mouth, by injection or as a pellet that is placed in the urethra (the tube that carries urine out of your body). The medicines relax the blood vessels so that they can flow into your penis.
These medicines are usually prescribed by your doctor to be used in conjunction with sex stimulation. Some men are unable to take the medicines or have side effects from them, such as a prolonged erection called priapism.
Injection therapy, also called ICI, involves injecting a medicine directly into the erection chambers of your penis. This method has been effective in treating many different erection problems caused by blood vessel, nerve or psychological conditions.
Another treatment for erection problems is using a vacuum device or ED ring that uses suction to bring blood into your penis and then constriction to hold an erection. These devices are available online or at your local pharmacy.
There are other ED medications that you can take by mouth, by injection or as a pill. These drugs increase chemicals in your body that make the penis erect and stay erect. There is a claim that certain male adult movie actors use the so called pornstar pills to improve their erections while on the set.They are not used to boost your sexual desire but to improve your response to sex.
Other medications for erectile dysfunction are phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors, which open the blood vessels in the penis so that more blood flow comes in. These drugs need to be taken with sexual stimulation to produce an erection. Call your health care provider if the erection lasts more than four hours or if you have any other problems after taking these medications.
5. Seek Help
Erection problems can cause stress and affect your self-confidence. They may also affect your relationship with your partner. If you or your partner have erection problems regularly, it’s a good idea to seek help.
Your doctor can test for an underlying health problem that’s causing your erection problems and recommend the best treatment to help you overcome them. ED can be caused by physical conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease, as well as mental health issues, including depression and anxiety.
You and your doctor can also try changing some of the medications you take. You might be able to stop taking the medication that is causing your erection problems or change it to another medicine.
The most important step is to talk about your sexual performance problems with your doctor. He or she will do an exam and ask you some questions about your sex life.
During the exam, your doctor will ask you about the medicines you take and other factors that might be affecting your erections. It’s important that you tell your doctor everything about the medicines you are taking, including dosages, side effects and interactions.
It’s also important to tell your doctor about any other medical conditions or health issues you have. If you have diabetes or heart disease, your doctor will need to know these details so he can treat any underlying problems.
You can help yourself by making sure you have a healthy lifestyle, eating healthy foods, staying active and not smoking or drinking too much alcohol. You should also get regular checkups and screening tests. Managing your health can reduce your risk of erectile dysfunction and other problems with sex.
