EMSELLA FOR MENS HEALTH
Erectile Dysfunction Treatment
What Is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence is the inability to get or keep an erection that allows sexual activity. ED is due to a physical or psychological problem or a mixture of both. It is common in older men but can affect younger men from 18 onwards and can be a precursor to cardiovascular disease and mental health issues not to mention the personal impact. The occasional failure to get or keep an erection is normal, however if this is persistent this can be a major cause of stress affecting both your wellbeing and relationship with your partner.
Underlying Causes of Erectile Dysfunction
The causes of ED can be many, including aging, hypertension, overweight, stress, vascular diseases and excessive consumption of smoking and alcohol. ED can also be a result of a weak pelvic floor or nerve damage. If you have an enlarged prostate or your prostate partially or fully removed you may begin to suffer from ED due to trauma to the muscles and nerves around the prostate and pelvic floor muscle.
Treatments for Erectile Dysfunction
There are very common treatments to solve or improve erectile dysfunction. These treatments can be painful and invasive.
The p-shot – do you want to give an injection into your penis? In addition, it can have side effects.
Surgery – painful, expensive and not guaranteed to function as a treatment option.
Taking medications – which have potential side effects, headaches, facial hot flashes, low blood pressure, congestion, dizziness, chest pain, not to mention cardiovascular risk.
One of the most common and beneficial erectile dysfunction exercises are Kegels (pelvic floor contractions). To combat the effects of erectile dysfunction, it is necessary to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. In men, Kegels target and strengthen the bulbocavernosus muscle (one of the superficial muscles of the perineum). This muscle allows the penis to fill up with blood during an erection, pump during ejaculation and empty the urethra after urination.
