According to a men’s health survey, only in America, 30 million men suffer from erectile dysfunction and many of them are over the age of 75 years. The disease is also known as impotence. It is a condition where a man is unable to maintain his erection or can’t produce enough to satisfy his partner. Major symptoms of erectile dysfunction include the lack of sexual desire. The condition seriously interferes with one’s life so erectile dysfunction treatment is necessary and it should be treated as soon as possible.
Mostly medicines used to treat this problem aim at increasing blood flow towards penis but there may be some potentially serious side effects of these medicines. The patient may experience nasal congestion, dizziness, sleeplessness, headache, backache, and hot and cold flashes. Those who are already diagnosed with high or low BP, diabetes, or uncontrolled hepatitis should not take medicines recommended for erectile dysfunction. Other methods to treat the condition include erection inducing injections and testosterone implants but there are many side effects associated with these methods of treating the disease. These injections may cause painful acne, swollen gums, pain in penis, or breast enlargement. Mainly injections are known as Intracavernous drugs and suppositories are called Intraurethral medicines. Drugs prescribed for this purpose are usually taken a few minutes before intercourse and one is not allowed to use the drug more than once per day although the dosage depends on the type of the drug.
Besides medication, erectile dysfunction is treated with life style changes made to the patient’s everyday life. Your doctor may ask to maintain a healthy exercise routine focused on weight loss, quit smoking, and reducing alcohol intake. Then there are other methods besides drugs such as the use of penile vacuum pumps and surgery of blood vessels in and around the penis area.
Penile pumps and other vacuum devices are not very result oriented since most men using this stuff complain that they get an erection that is hard enough to discontinue their intercourse and these devices are pretty useless. There is a higher risk of infections associated with this kind of surgery so it is necessary to consult an authentic and experienced sexologist for this purpose. Doctor Sablok can help you achieve desired results since he is a qualified and knowledgeable sexologist and has been dealing such cases for years.
Remember that this erectile dysfunction treatment is possible at any age so if you have crossed 70, don’t worry you can still be treated as good as a 20 years old guy. There are cases of erectile dysfunction that need some sort of psychological treatment besides medicines. Some patients are so stressed out that they are unable to maintain an erection for longer or at least as long as it is required to please their partners.
Then there are relationship problems, job stress, and financial worries that interfere with one’s performance at night. When the patient talks about his stressors and woes to a certified specialist, his sexual anxiety is released. The psychologist may help the patient to learn the strategies to boost his confidence and improve his intimacy.
