Some sexual disorders are related to ED and may cause similar symptoms to ED, such as: .
The penis is composed of three cylinders, two on the top and one on the underside of the penis. The top two cylinders are involved in the erectile process. The urethra, the tube that urine and semen pass through, is on the underside of the penis. The top two penile cylinders, the corpora cavernosa, are composed of tissue that is analogous to a sponge, containing spaces that can fill with blood and expand. These two cylinders are surrounding by a strong layer of tissue, like Saran wrap, the tunica albuginea. For an erection to occur, there must be properly functioning nerves, arteries, veins, and normal penile tissues. Share Your Story
Stability ball is one of the most versatile exercise equipment out there. You can use it to stretch and strengthen any part of your body. Vidyut, for instance, has incorporated it into his kalari sutra workout. He has placed his feet atop it while being in a plank position and pushed his hips upward and downward in an alternate motion, so as to stretch and strengthen the joints. When you do this exercise, make sure you maintain proper balance and stop your legs from falling off the stability ball. Go down on all fours. Place your palms on the floor in line with your shoulders. Lift your legs off the floor and place them on a stability ball. Keep your elbows and knees straight. Raise your hips to make a mountain with your body. Lower your hips and bring them as close to the floor as possible without touching it. Repeat in a seamless motion.

Surgery is also an option for some men with ED. During this procedure, doctors place penile implants in the penis. There are different types of procedures, depending on your goals and preferences.
The U.S. FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has a list of 29 OTC products that claim to treat erectile dysfunction. Patients should avoid these because many contain harmful ingredients. Other natural or herbal remedies such as DHEA, L-arginine, ginseng, and yohimbe are supplements that have been used but have not been proven safe and effective according to some researchers. Before using such compounds, individuals should consult their doctor. According to some experts, acupuncture does not effectively treat erectile dysfunction. Other home remedies for reducing ED symptoms include diet changes such as eating blueberries and citrus fruits and drinking red wine.
If medications do not work, we would discuss either penis injections or the vacuum pump. There is also something called MUSE, which is basically a small medication pellet that gets inserted inside the urethra (the tube that transports urine) and releases medication directly into the penis. Some men prefer it, as it may be a bit more effective than oral medications, but some will complain of pain and burning with insertion.
Another second-line therapy is the use of alprostadil, either intracavernosal or intraurethral. Two products are available for direct injection, Caverject (Pfizer) or Edex (Actient). A small needle is used to inject the medication into the lateral aspect of the penis through a small-gauge needle.
In order that erectile dysfunction may be diagnosed, you have to "bring it up". Talk with your physician – your erectile dysfunction is not obvious to anyone outside of your sexual partner(s). Once addressed, your physician will likely conduct a detailed history and physical examination in an attempt to elucidate the potential causes of your ED.

Erectile dysfunction is also known as impotence. It means you can't maintain an erect enough penis for satisfactory sexual intercourse. Many men have erection problems at times and the chance of this happening increases with age. Key points about erectile dysfunction Erectile dysfunction is not a disease, but a symptom of some other problem, either physical or psychological or a mixture of both. It can be distressing and may cause loss of confidence and self-esteem or depression, as well as relationship problems. There are several solutions, but recognising the problem and talking about it with your doctor are the key first steps. You can help yourself by cutting down on alcohol, stopping smoking and reducing the stress in your life. How does an erection happen?
