Erectile problems are something that men have gone through since the beginning of time.
Unfortunately, despite the major medical advances, men in our modern day are more likely to develop erectile issues.
So what exactly made erectile dysfunction less likely in the past?
What did we stop doing that almost guarantees every man on the planet a date with the impotence fairy? Today we are going to find out and in addition, we are going to cover things you should be doing to prevent erectile dysfunction.
So what has happened over the past hundred years that made us so susceptible to erectile issues?
To be blunt. Laziness. We live in an era that our physical bodies just aren’t required to operate at their full potential. If you’ve noticed most jobs require men to be more inactive than anything else. We sit in front of screens on a daily basis for hours at a time. Which means we’ve stopped getting a decent amount of exercise. While at the same time ingesting some of the most unhealthy foods imaginable. This lifestyle is damaging our reproductive capabilities. In fact, as you read this, it is being damaged.
Over a million men living in South Africa are living with erectile problems and less than a quarter of those men are doing anything about it.
I don’t think anyone should be surprised by these numbers because most men don’t want to talk about their inability to function in the bedroom.
So what can we do right now to ward off impotence?
Great question. The answer is simple. Go talk to your doctor to get an evaluation. Specifically, you want to check your blood pressure and circulation. These are two major contributing factors to erectile dysfunction in men and you will start to develop symptoms that can be easily missed.
The most obvious symptom of erectile dysfunction is soft erections.
Now soft erections come in many different ranges. So let’s clarify a bit. Any full erection that you have that you can bend is a soft erection. These kinds of erections are easily considered a fluke by being tired. This is absolutely not the case. Studies have shown that even when dead tired, men can form strong erections with no problems. If you’ve noticed this before and you have not gone to see a physician, then now you should. Like any condition, if erectile dysfunction is left unchecked it will become permanent!
Now there are a number of medications on the market that you can take to treat erectile issues.
Obviously the most popular being Viagra. Viagra has a 15-year track record for treating even the most severe cases of erectile dysfunction. Viagra currently holds a success rate of 85% in all cases of impotence. A small daily dose of this medication has even been proven to be a great way to protect men who don’t have any erection problems. If possible I’d recommend you speak to your doctor about the advantages of a small dose of Viagra for supplemental use. I think you will be amazed at what you can achieve when using Viagra. So don’t wait any longer. If erection problems are something you are worried about then take action today.
