According to the latest medical study, erectile dysfunction will effect 50% of men over the age of 45. Erectile dysfunction is not something immediate, it is a gradual decline in a man’s ability to get and or maintain an erection. The signs and symptoms are as follows:
Stage One: Loss Of Firmness
Can start as early as the mid 30’s. A man and his partner will notice his erections are not as firm as in the past. A good solid erection is right at 95% firmness. Over time, the firmness can reduce 1-3 % points per year. Leaving a man with a diminished ability to satisfy his partner.
Stage Two: Inability To Maintain
Along with the loss of firmness a man will be able to get erect, but unable to maintain his erection to reach climax for himself or his partner. This is not due to your lack of attraction to the other person. On the contrary, it is the second leading sign of impending chronic erectile dysfunction.
Stage Three: Full Blown Erectile Dysfunction
Can be as drastic as no response to any sexual stimulation or unable to reach higher than a 50% erection. Men who are experiencing this kind of result need more than the little blue pill. They need a medical solution that will open the blood vessels medically to allow blood to flow into the penis.
Changing diet, increasing testosterone levels, use of herbs or over the counter remedies will have little to no positive impact, just more frustration on the part of the man and his partner.
Reduction in testosterone levels does contribute to erectile dysfunction. However, the bigger culprits are the medications we take for: High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol or Diabetes. Our food supply contributes over time to the signs and symptoms. The solution is to meet with a medical profession who specializes in erectile dysfunction and men’s sexual health.
