Erections That Don't Last Long Enough

ED problems express themselves in a number of ways; no erection, a weak erection, or erections that don’t last long enough for normal intercourse. How long do erections typically last? A normal erection time usually lasts from 5-35 minutes. If erection loss occurs after only a short time, or recurs in the course of sexual activity, it can be a particularly frustrating experience. Fortunately, ED specialists offer men help with ED, and can improve their average erection time with a range of different ED treatments.

Traditional natural supplements like ginseng and yohimbe have proven successful in many cases and are sometimes recommended, but the success of ED medications such as Vardenafil (Viagra), Sildenafil (Levitra), and Tadalafil (Cialis) have transformed ED treatments, enabling many men to improve their average erection time. Many men have found these ED medications to be reliably effective, and the easiest way to increase their normal erection time. Alprostadil is another drug used to treat ED. Alprostadil is in a class of medications called vasodilators, and it works by relaxing the muscles and blood vessels in the penis.

Those men who do not respond to ED medications, or who are looking for ED treatments without drugs, can opt for surgical methods such as penile implant procedures, or acoustic wave therapy for ED. With products such as Shockwave or GAINSwave, acoustic wave therapy for ED is proving to be the most effective ED treatment for many men. By using soundwaves to stimulate a mechanical and chemical response in the body, acoustic wave therapy induces new blood vessel formation over time, so more blood can be directed to the penis. Shockwave also aids in nerve regeneration, helping those men whose ED is caused by nerve problems, and provides increased sensitivity that results in firmer, longer lasting erections. As an important alternative to Viagra and other potency drugs, Shockwave has a longer lasting effect, with more than short term results.The effect of the treatment can last up to two years.The recommended treatment includes 6 sessions, one every other day for two weeks, or twice a week for three weeks.

ED specialists have found that patients receiving Shockwave treatment experience an increased average erection time and improved sexual function.

If you experience erections that don’t last long enough, get help with ED from skilled specialists who can offer the latest ED treatments and return to a normal erection time.
