For men whose erections don’t last long enough, ED treatments can be used to extend one’s average erection time, and employ techniques to achieve normal erection time and a return to a satisfying sexual experience.

ED problems can express themselves in a number of ways; no erection, a weak erection, or erections that don’t last long enough for normal intercourse. How long do erections last? A normal erection time typically lasts from 5-35 minutes, and if erection loss occurs after only a short time, or recurs in the course of sexual activity, it can be a particularly frustrating experience. Fortunately, urology specialists can offer men help with ED and improve their average erection time through a range of different ED treatments.

Existing Methods for Getting an Erection and How Shockwave Therapy is Different

While traditional natural supplements, like ginseng and yohimbe have proven successful in many cases and are sometimes recommended, the success of medications for ED such as Vardenafil (Viagra), Sildenafil (Levitra), and Tadalafil (Cialis) have transformed ED treatments, and enable many men to improve their average erection time. Many men have found these ED medications highly effective, and find it the easiest way to increase their normal erection time.

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.

Men who do not respond to medications for ED, or who are looking for ED treatments without drugs, can opt for surgical methods such as penile implant procedures, or acoustic wave therapy for ED, with products such as Shockwave or Gainswave. Although relatively new acoustic wave therapy for ED is proving to be the most effective ED treatment for many men. By using soundwaves to stimulate a mechanical and chemical response in the body, shockwave treatment induces new blood vessel formation over time, so more blood can be directed to the penis. Shockwave also aids in nerve regeneration, which, in turn, will provide the increased sensitivity that results in firmer, longer lasting erections. As an important alternative to Viagra and other potency drugs, Shockwave therapy provides a longer lasting effect, with more than short term results. The recommended treatment includes 6 treatments, one every other day for two weeks, or twice a week for three weeks.

Specialists have found that the patients receiving Shockwave treatment experience an increased average erection time and more normal sexual function. The treatment can last up to two years.
