Erectile dysfunction is the biggest sexual issue that ruins the whole sexual happiness of a couple. In this issue, a person cannot gain hard erections and maintain the erection they have. These symptoms of erectile dysfunction are known as softer erections and premature ejaculation. Along with these symptoms, erectile dysfunction causes psychological problems like lower libido and sexual dissatisfaction in both couples. It happens because a person is unable to have satisfactory sex anymore.
Everyone knows that common reasons behind erectile dysfunction are bad habits, low testosterone, injuries, psychological issues, etc. In this blog, we will be discussing some tried and effective ways that will provide you relief from the issue of erectile dysfunction. Some of the methods are temporary ways that help a person suppress the problem so that a person can have satisfactory intercourse. So, let’s get started with the ways and discuss them in detail.
PDE Type5 Inhibitors
The first and the most adopted way to suppress the problem of erectile dysfunction is PDE type 5 inhibitor medicine. These are a temporary solution that suppresses the symptoms of erectile dysfunction in your body for a few hours. In those few hours, a person can have an extraordinary sexual experience that they might be missing for a more extended period. Some of the medicines in the category are Cenforce 100 mg, Fildena 100 mg, Tadalista 20, etc.
The medicine will perform the main task of blocking all the activities performed by the PDE type5 after dissolving in your body. It is a chemical compound that binds with the blood vessels and inhibits the action of cGMP. Due to this, the blood vessels start contracting, which obstructs the blood flow toward the penis. It will cause softer erections and premature ejaculation also. Now, most people have thought: why don’t we permanently remove PDE from our bodies?
The answer is that we should never do it because PDE is activated in our body to protect our vital organs. That is why we only suppress the activity of PDE for some hours so that we can have an amazing sexual experience. When the medicine enters your body, the salt dissolves and enters your blood vessels. It blocks PDE from taking any action, giving rise to cGMP, a natural vasodilator. The cGMP also helps blood to stay for a long inside your penis. You can have an amazing sexual life without worrying about softer erections and premature ejaculation.
If we talk about medicine, there are four basic salts: Sildenafil citrate, Tadalafil, Vardenafil, and Avanafil. These are prescription-based salt that the FDA approved for erectile dysfunction.
Along with PDE type 5 inhibitors, the FDA has also approved an injection that helps trigger an automatic erection in your body. The name of that injection/drug is Alprostadil. After oral medications are the fastest and most effective way, with around an 85% success rate. There are some cases like heart issues in which a person can not take oral medicine. Such people can get some aid from this injection. A person must use the injection every time before sexual activity, making it a bit difficult to use.
You will see blood vessels expand as you inject Alprostadil into your body. It happens because the injection belongs to the category of vasodilators. The response time of the injection is around 5-20 minutes, depending on your body. The erection you will gain from this medicine will last one to two hours. Unlike PDE type5 inhibitors, there is a limitation of injection. You can not use the injection more than thrice a week. If you do so, your body will show severe side effects related to the drug.
A few people are not willing to consume any kind of sexual wellness chemical drugs but want a good sexual life. Such people can take the help of vacuum pumps. It is also a very common choice of people and has 75% effectiveness which is a great number. The pump works on a vacuum mechanism to cause an erection in your body. This equipment will get a plastic cylindrical pump and a ring. You should place the cylindrical pump on your penis and bring the air out.
It will create a vacuum that will force blood to enter the penile muscles. It will cause an erection which you will hold with the help of the elastic ring. You should slide it on the base of your penis, which will block blood inside your penis. When using the pump and ring, a precaution you should take is to remove the ring every half an hour. Also, you should remove the ring if you notice numbness and bruising.
Sometimes erectile dysfunction in a person’s body is nothing but some kind of few in their mind. It might be due to performance pressure, past activity, low self-confidence, etc., kind of problems. In a few cases, some personal fights and poor relationships also cause erectile dysfunction because a person is unwilling to have sex in that environment and partner.
In such cases, the best suggestion is to visit a sexual health professional for therapy and the ED drugs discussed above. If you need the therapy individually, you choose it, and if you need it as a couple, you can go for it too. The physician will slowly help you resolve any underlying issues so that you can perform well sexually once again.
Sometimes low testosterone can also be a reason for erectile dysfunction. In this case, a person has to find what is causing low-T levels in their body. In some cases, gland dysfunction causes it, which can only be treated without any major therapy with medicines. But in some cases, the problem is serious, and a person needs testosterone therapy. It will help you maintain testosterone levels in your body according to requirements. There are six different ways through which a person can take testosterone therapy. Those ways are-
- The first way is nasal therapy, in which you must intake testosterone through a nasal passage through inhalers. A person must use the inhaler 2-3 times per day depending on the testosterone levels in their body.
- The next way is applying gel that contains free testosterone in it. You have to rub the testosterone on your shoulder or thighs based on the brand your physician is suggesting to you. After applying the gel, you should not apply water to that place for some hours so that it gets absorbed properly.
- The next method of testosterone therapy is injection. An injection is either given under the skin if you use Testosterone cypionate or intramuscular if you use Testosterone undecanoate. The effect of the injection will last for a few weeks based on your T-levels.
- The next way is using a testosterone patch every night before sleeping. You should apply the Anoderm patch on your thighs so that it gets easily absorbed and start working.
- You can also opt for buccal cavity testosterone therapy if you want. In this, you have to put a small substance between the gum and the cheeks. Your saliva will start dissolving the testosterone, entering your blood vessels through a natural depression in your mouth. A person has to use this product 2-3 times each day.
- The final way is using implants which are surgically placed under your skin with the help of an incision. A pallet like Tentpole is placed under your skin which will last for 3-6 months in your body based on the testosterone levels.
