Difficulty in getting an erection is one of the primary problems for men facing ED. Learn more about the methods used to overcome this difficulty.

For some men, their ED is expressed in their inability to keep their erection, or issues regarding their ejaculatory response. For many others, the more common problem is achieving an erection at all. Too many men experience a lack of erectile response in the excitement phase, and opportunities are foreclosed before they can even get started.

For the men who have a frequent problem getting an erection, who can only maintain a weak erection, for men having trouble to keep an erection long enough to please themselves and their partners, there are effective treatments out there, ways for men to get hard and to stay hard. ED has historically been an all too common affliction, and there has been considerable interest in effective cures. Some traditional natural supplements, like ginseng and yohimbe can be useful, but the advent of PDE5 Inhibitors such as Vardenafil (Viagra), Sildenafil (Levitra), and Tadalafil (Cialis) have effectively revolutionized the treatment of ED. Myriad psychological issues can be overcome with a temporary regimen of these drugs, and many have found them to be effective for chronic ED also.

Alprostadil is another drug used to treat ED. Alprostadil is in a class of medications called vasodilators, and it works by relaxing the muscles and blood vessels in the penis. While Alprostadil does not cure erectile dysfunction or increase sexual desire, it is used to keep enough blood in the penis so that an erection can occur.

Men who are unresponsive to PDE5 drugs, or who are looking for another treatment option to drugs, can opt for surgical procedures. The advent of acoustic wave therapy for ED, with products such as Shockwave or Gainswave, as the most effective ED treatment has opened up even more options. Shockwave treatment applies soundwaves to stimulate a mechanical and chemical response in the body. The soundwaves break up micro-plaque in the arteries that feed the penis, and will, over time, induce new blood vessel formation so more blood can be directed to the penis. Shockwave has proven to aid in nerve regeneration, provide Increased sensitivity, and firmer, longer lasting erections. As an alternative to Viagra and other potency drugs shockwave therapy provides more than a short term effect.

These attributes make the shockwave treatment much longer lasting and more restorative, and the effect of the treatment can last up to two years.

Specialists offer a wide selection of available options for men suffering from the effects of ED. If you are experiencing a problem getting an erection, keeping an erection, or have a weak erection, consult with urology specialists with the latest methods to get hard and enjoy life.
