Difficulty Getting an Erection

For some men, their ED problem is expressed in their inability to keep their erection. Others have issues regarding their ejaculatory response. For many others, the more common problem is achieving any erection at all. Too many men experience a lack of erectile response in the excitement phase, and find the prospect of sex is over before they can even get started.

There are effective treatments for men who experience trouble getting an erection, who have a weak erection, as well as men having trouble to keep an erection long enough to please themselves and their partners. ED has been an all too common affliction, so there has been a considerable interest in effective cures. Traditional natural supplements, like ginseng and yohimbe can be useful and are still prescribed in some cases, but the advent of PDE5 Inhibitors such as Vardenafil (Viagra), Sildenafil (Levitra), and Tadalafil (Cialis) have effectively revolutionized the treatment of ED. Psychological issues can sometimes be overcome with a short-term regimen of these drugs, and many have found them to be the first line treatment for men with chronic ED looking to get hard and to stay hard.

Alprostadil is another drug used to treat ED. Classified as a vasodilator, it works by relaxing the muscles and blood vessels in the penis. Alprostadil does not cure erectile dysfunction or increase sexual desire, but it does keep enough blood in the penis so that an erection can occur.

Men who do not respond to PDE5 drugs, or who are looking for a non-drug option, can elect to use surgical procedures, or most recently, acoustic wave therapy for ED, with products such as Shockwave or GAINSwave. Shockwave treatment works by applying soundwaves to stimulate a mechanical and chemical response in the body. The soundwaves break up micro-plaque in the arteries that feed the penis. Over time, new blood vessels are formed, and more blood can be directed to the penis. Shockwave has proven to aid in nerve regeneration as well, with Increased sensitivity, and firmer, longer lasting erections. Shockwave therapy provides an alternative to Viagra and other potency drugs, with more than a short term effect. These attributes make the Shockwave treatment longer lasting, more restorative, and more convenient. The effect of the treatment can last up to two years.
