ED

Some people have the wildest ideas about erectile dysfunction (ED) and some of its treatments. Some of these ideas may be true but most of them are way off! So we decided to create a list of common questions we get asked and we debunk the myths about ED. Here they are.

 

Myth: ED is untreatable

Fact: Not true at all! ED is generally very treatable but it just needs to be diagnosed properly. ED is often caused by psychological issues which can be helped with counseling. Best to see your doctor and they will point you in the right direction.

Myth: Because I don’t suffer from ED now, I never will

Fact: Again, untrue (unfortunately). It is actually more common for people to begin to suffer from ED as they get older. So just because you don’t suffer from ED now, doesn’t mean you never will. It can also be caused by lifestyle factors such as stress, putting on weight, drinking too much and more.

Myth: Using ED medication such as Viagra can cause stretchmarks on your penis.

Fact: ED medications such as Viagra don’t make the size of your penis increase, they simply help you get an erection. This means that you should not suffer from any stretchmarks while using these products.

Myth: Everyone gets ED when they get older, it’s just a part of life.

Fact: Ed is far more common for older men, but it does not have to be normal. You may need to be more sexual aroused than when you were younger, but you should still be able to remain sexually active.

Myth: ED is not dangerous so I don’t have no need to worry about it.

Fact: Ok, well ED itself is not dangerous but it can be an early sign of worse things to come such as diabetes, heart problems, high blood pressure and more. This is why it is so important to see your doctor if you are suffering from ED. It can often be more than just that.
