Treatments for Erectile Concerns

Posted On: August 2, 2009

Treatments for erectile concerns usually proceed from least to most invasive. For some men, making a few healthy lifestyle changes may solve the problem. Quitting smoking, losing excess weight, and increasing physical activity may help some men regain sexual function. Cutting back on any drugs with harmful side effects is considered next.

Other treatments include psychotherapy and behavior modifications in selected patients. There is also oral or locally injected drugs, vacuum devices, and surgically implanted devices being most invasive. In rare cases, surgery involving veins or arteries may be considered.

There is an assumption is that the man’s penis is central to a woman’s sexual satisfaction. In reality, orgasms are a very individualistic thing — there is no one correct pattern of sexual response. Whatever works, feels good, and makes you feel more alive and connected with your partner is what counts.

Besides penetrative sex, there are ways to improve love making which men can still participate in with their partner. For instance the man can stimulate the woman manually either during, prior to, or after intercourse. She can stimulate herself manually during intercourse, or he can try out alternatives to their love making including oral sex or manual stimulation or a vibrator. Generally a combination and variation of the above methods allow couples to have intercourse and also allows the woman to have the release of an orgasm.
