Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a medical condition that affects many men in the United States. Engaging in sexual activity can already be an anxious and unnerving experience for many men, and not being able to perform certainly doesn’t help. If you feel that you’re alone in dealing with this issue, you aren’t. Uptown Medical Wellness & Anti-Aging center is happy to say that we now have Erectile Dysfunction Medication (EDM) available. Let’s talk about what these medications entail and how they can help you reignite that important spark in your and your significant other’s life.
What Causes ED?
There are many factors that contribute to Erectile Dysfunction (ED); stress being one of the primary ones. When you experience stress, two things happen. First, the desire and interest in sex quickly diminishes. Secondly, it affects a man’s ability to perform in the bedroom. However, stress isn’t the only factor to blame. Diabetes, neurological and hormonal imbalances, and cardiovascular diseases can also play a role in ED. Also, low self-confidence and performance anxiety are known to contribute. Remember, each man’s reason for experiencing ED is different, but the way to treat it is similar.
When Does EDM Kick In?
Most men on EDMs can achieve an erection within the first 30 to 60 minutes after taking a tablet and when sexually aroused. EDM has been known to take a while longer when taken after a meal. The point here is that EDMs give you the support when needed most.
How Long Does it Last?
Depending on the prescription, an EDM can last up to four hours. Now, this doesn’t mean that an erection will be present and sustained for those consecutive four hours. This simply means that an erection can be achieved during this timeframe if sexually stimulated. With EDMs, there is no rush either; you’ve got time and confidence on your side.
Easy and Discrete
One of the great things about EDMs is that taking one is easy, convenient and discreet. Whether you’re at home, on vacation or out of town, it’s easy to just take a small pill when you need it without anyone having to know what it is.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Every drug has side effects and EDMs are no different, yet, EDM prescriptions are generally well-tolerated. Years of research have shown EDMs to be safe with moderate and mild side effects for a small portion of users. In fact, only 1% of men experience side effects after taking an EDM. One of the most common is muscle pain. This, of course, varies from the amount of EDM prescribed to the user taking it. We encourage you to contact us if you have any questions regarding EDMs and side effects.
