drooping statueHaving problems getting an erection is something that many adult men experience. In fact, nearly all men at some point in their lives have difficulty getting an erection or maintaining it.

In some cases, this is a temporary condition that will go away with little or no treatment whatsoever. Other times however, it may be an ongoing problem that can eventually damage a man's self esteem and effect the relationship he has with his partner.

Commonly known as erectile dysfunction or impotence, erection problems refer to a man's inability to achieve satisfactory erections suitable for sexual intercourse. This condition is common in about 25% of the male population. Men who most often experience repeated impotence tend to be of middle age.

Thought once to be purely psychological in nature, doctors now agree that frequent erection problems are often the result of certain physical factors. Aging is the most common cause as the decrease in male hormones plays a significant role in erectile dysfunction. A percentage of men also experience this type of problem due to disease or from a combination of psychological and physical conditions.

Over the last few years, the medical community has been committed to finding solutions to erectile dysfunction problems through a wide range of mechanical, surgical and medicinal treatments.

When erection problems occur frequently, the first step in treatment is of course physical examination. This is done to rule out injury, side effects from medicine or diseases and disorders such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, kidney disease, alcoholism, or multiple sclerosis.

A considerable part of this evaluation includes a detailed patient history which gives the doctor important insight into the patient's health and the severity of the condition. Treatments are tailored to the individual, with the severity and cause taken into consideration. Some common treatments include medications, vacuum pump devices and surgery.

Some commonly prescribed medications to treat erectile dysfunction include Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis. For men wishing to go the natural route, non-prescription herbal enlargement supplements are often substituted.

Vacuum pumps fall under the category of "mechanical" treatments. These devices are cylinders worn over the penis and air is pumped from the chamber to create a vacuum space around it. This causes blood to be drawn into the penis, thereby engorging it and causing an erection.

Surgery is sometimes performed in order to restore blood flow to the penile area if the blood vessels are damaged. Surgery is a risky business however, due to the possibility of infection during the procedure.

Psychotherapy and behavior alteration are also sometimes prescribed to help alleviate erectile dysfunction. These types of treatments work to target the psychological factors that may be causing the disorder.

So how do you know if it's a real problem for you? If you have difficulty getting an erection and keeping it for over 25% of the time, then it is a problem. Luckily there are many types of treatments available, including those outlined above, that can help in the treatment of erection problems. Always be sure to consult your physician first.

I am sleeping with a man 32 who is having this difficulty and he tries and tries then gets an erection for short time but in the meantime I am so sore from him trying I bleed.

Hi Cathy,

Erectile dysfunction is typically referred to as a male problem but as you have seen it does often have an effect on both partners. While there are certain methods that can greatly improve sexual functioning (specific exercises, natural supplements etc.), your partner would need to make the commitment himself to pursue a remedy.

In terms of things that you yourself can do to help improve the situation, you may wish to try a topical enhancement gel. This would serve a dual purpose: 1) it would help improve blood flow to his penis thereby increasing erection hardness and response and 2) it would serve as a lubricant to keep you moist and prevent discomfort.

There are many brands available which can be purchased discretely online (see the link above). From personal experience I feel that Prosolution Gel is the most effective. I especially like that it doesn't contain a numbing agent which I find reduces sensation and subsequently the amount of pleasure you experience during sex.

The good thing is that if he is sensitive about his performance problem then you can just tell him it's a "sex lube" and he'll never need to know what it's really for. Although he may be pleasantly surprised when his erections are more responsive and stronger! I hope you find this information helpful Cathy!
