Say the word ‘Viagra’ and immediately most people will assume that you are having problems in the bedroom department. This is often true as Viagra can be used to overcome problems with obtaining an erection when you are sexually aroused.
Many men find themselves in this predicament and start to lose confidence, thinking that maybe Viagra is just for wimps and that if they need it, then they are lacking in male prowess.
However, this is not the case. Any man of any age can be struck down with erectile dysfunction (ED) and at any time, no matter his state of health or fitness. There is absolutely no reason to think that because you have a temporary problem with impotency that your virility is at risk. ED can be triggered by so many things:
• Chronic sickness
• Overwork and tiredness
• Emotional problems
• Relationship issues
Even a mixture of all of these things can cause ED to kick in.
How can I get help with my ED?
First of all, you must realise that it is not your fault that you are suffering. Make an appointment to see your doctor or G.P and give them a full list of your symptoms and possible related conditions. Your doctor will then take a medical history and if necessary, carry out some basic tests. He may check your blood pressure, heart condition and cholesterol levels as all of these can also be linked to ED. He will then decide what the best treatment for you is.
What treatment may he prescribe?
Viagra or generic Viagra ( Sildenafil) may be offered on prescription. Depending upon the cause of your ED, similar drugs or treatments like acupuncture or hypnosis or stress remedies may be offered. It very much depends on what is causing your ED. If it is linked to an illness or disease, the doctor will treat that at the same time.
Before you know it, your confidence will be restored and your sexual problems will be a thing of the past.
