Erectile dysfunction (ED) can be a distressing condition, but it’s much more common than you may realize. It’s thought that as many as half of all men aged between 40 and 70 have this problem to some extent, and it can affect much younger men too. Whether you have ED now or you’re worried about developing this problem in the future, it helps to ensure you’re clued up on the facts. With this in mind, here are three things that every man should know about the condition.

1) It can be a sign of an underlying health problem

Often when people suffer from ED, a sense of embarrassment or even shame means they try to keep the problem hidden and simply hope it will go away by itself. This can be a big mistake though. It’s important to realize that ED can be a sign of a more serious underlying health issue – so ignoring it can put your wellbeing at risk. In some cases, the inability to get an erection is caused by high cholesterol, high blood pressure or diabetes. This is why it’s so important to find out what is triggering ED. To do this, you can book an appointment with your GP. Bear in mind that other causes of ED can include relationship problems, depression, anxiety, hormonal imbalances, surgery, and injury.

2) Viagra isn’t the only treatment

Everyone knows about the little blue pill, but Viagra isn’t the only targeted medicine available for the treatment of ED.  Another option is shockwave treatment.  An effective course of treatment with focused shockwave will allow you to get a better raise and become more independent of pills when you feel like it and without unpleasant side effects. You can find out more about the differences between these medicines and shockwave therapy by speaking to your GP or visiting websites such as https://www.msinsight.dk/erektil-dysfunktion-impotens/.

3) Most men can overcome ED

Developing ED can be traumatic and it often leaves men feeling insecure and emasculated. However, there’s no need to despair if you experience this problem. Treatments for ED have improved greatly over recent decades and now most men who experience the problem are able to have sex again once they have found a suitable solution. As well as targeted medicines like the ones mentioned above, there is a range of other treatment options available. Doctors can recommend medical interventions or lifestyle changes to address underlying health issues and, for cases caused by psychological problems, specialist counseling services are available. Other options include vacuum pumps, hormone therapy, surgery, and penile implants.

Getting the facts on ED can reduce the fears you may have about the condition and it helps ensure you’re best placed to tackle the problem.
