Learning to Cope with Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common problem among men of all age groups. Some studies have suggested that up to a third of men will experience some form of erectile dysfunction. In younger men, this is often temporary; drinking too much or high-stress levels can cause individual cases of erectile dysfunction. In older men, this becomes more frequent and can be a result of many different factors. 

Psychological factors, such as stress and depression, can cause ED, and in some cases, ED can cause these conditions to worsen. Physiological factors, such as low blood pressure and injury, can also contribute to both temporary and long-term ED.

It is perfectly natural to feel stressed, upset or frustrated when facing erectile dysfunction. However, it is also important to note what can be done and to see how best to help treat your symptoms.

Living With ED

When it comes to living with ED, you have a few options which will not only help reduce the severity of ED symptoms but might also be beneficial for your sex life and general health!

Speaking to your doctor about your sexual health may seem like a stressful endeavour, but it can be worth it, particularly if you are a younger man suffering from ED. In many cases, there will be a reason for this occurrence. By speaking to a medical professional, you can rule out any serious issues, or figure out the root cause of your issues with ED. In most cases, this will just be a discussion with your GP; physical examinations may occur if you are referred to a specialist.

Avoiding stress can be easier said than done. However, stress is one of the major contributors to ED in our daily lives; if left untreated and unexamined, stress can become anxiety, causing further health problems down the line. 

These sorts of longer-term mental health issues can contribute to ED, meaning that without treatment these issues can compound on each other. Mindfulness and meditation can help to reduce the physiological effects of stress, while medications and therapies such as CBT can help to treat anxiety longer-term. 

Getting more exercise can help you to lose or keep weight off, as well as improving blood flow and blood pressure. Regular exercise can also lower your chances of cardiovascular disease. 

A healthy diet can help with a wide variety of medical conditions, but there is evidence that it can help with ED as well. A healthy diet will help with blood flow and blood pressure, both of which are potential factors in ED. 

High cholesterol can lead to high blood pressure, which in turn can create issues with achieving or maintaining an erection. It can also help to reduce your weight, which is another ED factor (both physiological and psychological). Similarly, avoiding alcohol can help your general health and prevent another trigger for temporary ED.

Medical Treatments

When it comes to medicinal treatments for ED, Simple Online Pharmacy has you covered. Each of these medicines treats ED by allowing the smooth muscle around blood vessels to relax, allowing greater blood flow to your penis. We currently have a wide selection of ED treatment options you can choose from, including;

  • Viagra (Sildenafil), designed to work 30-60 minutes after taking the tablet, and last up to 4-6 hours This allows you to guarantee a time that you wll be able to have sex. Available as both branded Viagra and generic Sildenafil – chemically identical, the only difference being the price.
  • Cialis (Tadalifil), works over a longer period than Viagra, allowing you to achieve erections across an 18-hour period. Because it lasts longer, it is also possible to take a much lower dose of Cialis on a daily basis, which allows you more flexibility as to when you want to have sex. Available as both branded Cialis and generic Tadalafil.
  • Spedra (Avanafil), the fastest-acting ED medication on the market. Spedra takes effect in 15-30 minutes, meaning it can still be used more flexibly than Viagra, but not quite as flexible as Cialis. 

If you aren’t sure which type of ED medication might be right for you, we also stock an ED Trial Pack – 4 tablets each of Sildenafil, Tadalafil and Vardenafil. This allows men with ED to try out each treatment and see what works best for them. It also allows you to see if you will experience any side effects from these treatments, and how they may interact with any other health conditions you may have.

Please note, these medications are not recommended for those who have a history of heart disease. Our pharmacists will discuss your medical history if you place an order through us.

Dealing with ED can be stressful, but here at Simple Online Pharmacy, we aim to offer support to make your treatment as easy as we can.
