However, due to social stigma, it isn’t often discussed, leaving many men wondering how to deal with this problem.

Luckily, there are many treatments out there for ED, so if you are dealing with this condition, you don’t have to suffer through it or feel alone.

Treatments are constantly improving, and nowadays there is increased awareness of the problems of erectile dysfunction among the general population.

Negative Side Effects of Erectile Dysfunction

The biggest and most obvious negative side effect of erectile dysfunction is an inability to perform in the bedroom. While this can be treated with pills, they don’t always work comfortably or address any of the other challenges of ED. These pills can also cause side effects of their own.

While ED doesn’t normally lead to other major health complications on its own, some problems may arise, such as stress that leads to anxiety and depression. ED can also be a symptom of other larger problems, so it is important to get it checked out. Getting treatment for erectile dysfunction will help your sex life tremendously and boost your confidence in your relationships and in your body.

Common Myths About Erectile Dysfunction

There are many common myths about erectile dysfunction that lead many men to hide the problem or avoid seeking treatment. One of the biggest myths about ED is that you can only get it if you are older. This leads many younger men to avoid seeking treatment for their erectile dysfunction.

Another major myth about ED is that it is always caused by major physical conditions such as diabetes or heart disease. This isn’t true either. While many instances of ED are caused by these conditions, there are also many instances of ED that are not caused by any underlying physical condition.

Finally, many people believe that if you can get an erection, you must not have ED. Surprisingly, this is not true. Many men with erectile dysfunction can get an erection; however, they can’t maintain it, or the erection is not strong enough to sustain sexual intercourse.

How to Treat Erectile Dysfunction

These treatments tend to be more effective than taking ED medication, and they don’t come with the same side effects.

One of the treatments for ED is the P-Shot, which uses Platelet-Rich Plasma.

PRP is made by separating the plasma from your own blood, and this treatment works by increasing blood flow to the penis and breaking up blockages.

Another innovative treatment is stem cell therapy, which has been shown to regenerate tissue and improve erection quality. As a bonus, many men report an increase of girth in their penises after the P-Shot or stem cell therapy. Finally, there is a new pulsed energy wave treatment that can also improve ED called Shockwave therapy. This helps stimulate blood flow to the penis, which minimizes erectile dysfunction.
