Erectile dysfunction can be caused by a myriad of factors, from physiological factors (such as weight, blood pressure, heart conditions, and medications) to psychological factors (such as stress and performance anxiety) to even lifestyle factors.
The best approach is often an integrative approach to dealing with the issue. Here are some things that can help you resolve erection issues:
1. Check for Physiological Causes/Medications
If you experience erectile dysfunction, your first point of call should be to check for physiological causes. Heart conditions, high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol levels, among others, are health conditions that can impact your erections. Certain medications can also impact your erections. See your doctor for a proper diagnosis and treatment, or to rule out any medical causes while you look into other interventions.
2. Healthy Lifestyle
A healthy lifestyle never goes out of fashion. Some lifestyle changes that can help improve your health and also impact your erection include maintaining healthy body weight, managing your blood pressure, daily exercise (even if it’s simply taking a walk), following a healthy diet, and reducing alcohol intake, among others.
3. Try a Cock Ring
Cock rings are not a long-term solution but can help you in the shorter term. They work by delaying the flow of blood out of the penis so you can stay erect for longer. For a better experience during intercourse, get a Vibrating Cockring. It increases sensation for both the man and woman, making intercourse more pleasurable. Check out our cock rings HERE.
4. Medical Surgery
In some cases, surgery may be necessary to treat ED. Surgery can involve implanting a device into the penis or repairing blood vessels to improve blood flow. While surgery can be effective, it’s typically reserved for severe cases of ED that have not responded to other treatment options.
5. Sex Therapy
Sex therapy is also highly useful in helping clients deal with erectile dysfunctions. In sex therapy for ED, a therapist works with the individual or couple to identify the root causes of the problem. The therapist may also help the individual or couple develop strategies for managing anxiety, stress, or other emotional issues that may be contributing to the ED.
