Try This, Not That for Your ED

The Internet has a lot to say about a lot of things, and you can find yourself overwhelmed and confused by all of the information you find on things like erectile definition. For starters, you may read through the list of symptoms and self-diagnose yourself with the condition. You may also dive deep into the topic of treatments, only to get frustrated at your options and the feeling that solutions are too expensive or too invasive. Rather than continue to labor over medical journals and websites, this article will give a simple to understand but comprehensive overview of ED and a highly recommended treatment program that can change your sex life.

Know Your Condition

It is completely normal for men to have sexual highs and lows. New relationships often carry a bit pf pressure concerning performance, and maybe a rough day at the office affects your ability to concentrate. Struggling to get and keep an erection isn’t a problem until it becomes a problem. An occasional off-night can generally be chalked up to some influencing factor, such as too much alcohol, mental stress, or physical tiredness. However, repeated experiences where your erection isn’t hard enough for satisfaction could indicate that there is a more serious condition at fault. Erections problems that indicate ED is your problem usually start once a man reaches the age of 40 and grow more common as a man ages. Older men with other health problems are also are a greater risk for impotence. When over half of your sexual encounters leave you with an erection that is limp or you experience premature ejaculations, it is time to seek medical help.

Be Prepared for the Diagnosis

Heading to the doctor to talk about your sex life isn’t the most comfortable experience, but it is important if you are going to find answers for your performance troubles. When speaking to a physician, you need to be honest with the details of your condition. You will need to share how long you have been experiencing erection problems and any other information that will help your doctor make the best decision for treatment. However, you need to be prepared for the possibility that your struggle with ED is related to another health concern. There are several physical causes of impotence.

  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Clogged blood vessels
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Sleep disorders
  • Low testosterone
  • Scar tissue or nerve damage from surgery or trauma

If your condition is connected to a physical condition, your treatment for ED may also include a plan to address the underlying cause. The most concerning physical causes relate to vascular conditions, obesity, and heart disease. Avascular disease affects the blood vessels, with high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and atherosclerosis making up about 70% of the physically-related causes of impotence. These conditions restrict blood flow to the brain and heart, but they also impact the blood flow to the penis. The penis has tiny chambers that fill up with blood when arousal occurs, but without a strong enough blood flow, the chambers don’t get the blood supply needed to sustain the erection.  In men over the age of 60, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) is to blame for between 50%-60% of ED cases. With obesity, the increased risk of developing diabetes and high cholesterol becomes an issue. Diabetes creates artery and nerve damage that affects your ability to achieve an erection, and nearly 35% to 50% of men with diabetes also have erectile dysfunction. Heart disease is the other serious concern for men that are diagnosed with ED, though research indicates that conditions of ED are generally forerunners to later problems with the heart. The evidence seems to link dysfunction in the inner lining of the blood vessels and smooth muscle. These dysfunctions lead to an inadequate blood supply to the heart, which creates a reduced and sluggish flow of blood into the penis. Diet and exercise may help, but ED treatment is still important.

Realize the Non-physical Causes of Impotence

There are other causes of ED beyond just physical health conditions. Prescription medications, particularly those for mental health disorders like depression and anxiety, as well as cholesterol medications, can interfere with your sex life. The medication could alter your hormone balance, your nerves, or your blood circulation. The use of illicit drugs, alcohol, and tobacco also have a negative impact on your performance. Many men think that a beer or a few shots with help calm their nerves and enable them to bring their A-game on a date, but any kind of drug substance will actually inhibit performance. Performance anxiety is a condition that also plagues a lot of men, and the fear and worry over size, experience, and performance make it harder to be aroused and focus on the elements of pleasure and satisfaction. Mental health disorders and stress also crowd out your mind’s ability to have a good time in bed. Though these conditions could be temporary, the impact on the sex life is still the same and needs to be addressed. The brain has a leading role in arousal, desire, and excitement, and uncovering the inhibitions increases the potential for reversing conditions of ED.

Challenges with erectile dysfunction is a two-edged sword, since poor performance typically contributes to a poor psychological state. An unsatisfactory sex life can lead to increased feelings of loneliness, rejection, or embarrassment. Despite a physical condition potentially sparking the inability to perform in bed, men are often plagued with emotional complications. Low self-esteem, relationship problems, and increased anxiety are common results, which only compound the problems with erections and performance. The toll it can take on a relationship is devastating, so it is important that treatment is always sought, no matter how embarrassed you may feel. Some couples, in addition to the man seeking medical help for ED, try sex therapy or couples counseling to move past relationship issues that may continue to hold back sexual progress.

Purchase a Solution

Treatment for erectile dysfunction is widely available, though the Mt Everest ED medication is highly recommended for men who struggle with their erections. You may be familiar with the little blue pill that has been on the market for decades, but Mt. Everest exceeds what Viagra can offer you. This formula can help you develop a hard erection that lasts until satisfaction, increases your sexual desire and libido, and it can reduce occurrences of premature ejaculation. The medication is a compound of three elements, each addressing a different part of a man’s sexual process. It contains tadalafil, oxytocin, and PT-141. Tadalafil relaxes the body while increasing the rush of blood into the penis. Oxytocin makes it easier for you to focus on pleasure and stimulation, creating excitement and intense orgasms. PT-141 is a peptide compound that stirs up your libido and stimulates your nervous system toward sex. Mt. Everest is also FDA-approved, and many men have found that it works in as little as five minutes.

At the end of the day, your search for answers on erectile dysfunction can stop here. You know the symptoms, but more importantly, you know of a solution. You should still speak to a healthcare provider concerning your erections, especially since other health conditions could be the underlying cause of your struggle. However, you should make sure your provider knows you want to try Mt. Everest to restore hard, satisfying erections.
