How Can Swiss men Handle Erectile Dysfunction

Problems down under, down under? You’re not alone. , an estimated one million men in Switzerland are affected by erectile dysfunction.

But what is erectile dysfunction, what causes it, and how can it be treated?

Erectile dysfunction (ED), or impotence, means not being able to get or keep an erection that is sufficient of firm enough for sexual intercourse. It is the most common sex problem that men report to their doctor and many men have it at some point in their lives. ED can occur because of problems at any stage of the erection process. An erection is the result of increased blood flow into the penis due to stimulation by sexual thoughts or direct physical contact. When a man is sexually aroused, muscles in the penis relax, thus allowing increased blood flow through the penile arteries. As the penis fills with blood, it becomes stiff and rigid and is prepared for penetration in sexual intercourse.

What can cause ED

There are many different causes of erectile dysfunction, which can include both physical and emotional/psychological conditions.

Physical factors of erectile dysfunction include general aging, low testosterone levels, high cholesterol, health problems that affect your nerves, spinal cord injuries, a surgery that affects the pelvic area or spinal cord, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, treatments for prostate cancer or an enlarged prostate, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, obesity, alcohol, some medications, smoking, and substance abuse. Emotional and psychological factors of erectile dysfunction include unresolved problems, conflicts, or issues within a sexual and emotional relationship, high levels of stress, and problems with mental health such as depression.

The most common cause of Erectile Dysfunction

Probably the most common of all the causes of ED is anxiety about sexual performance, especially at the beginning of a new romantic or physical relationship. Many men believe they must perform at a certain level in order to please their partner, but end up causing more of a problem due to anxiety. It is important to remember that sexual interaction is supposed to be fun and low-pressure for all parties involved and that it is not a competition.

Why ED is so devastating

It is common for a man who is impotent to be affected by a combination of physical and psychological causes. There are so many things that could be contributing to ED that the best case of action is to speak to a doctor openly and honestly about the problem. There is no need to be embarrassed or insecure about the issue because it is so extremely common. In fact, erectile dysfunction affects approximately ten percent of men per decade of life, which means that about fifty percent of men in their 50s, sixty percent of men in their 60s, seventy percent of men in their 70s, and so on.

After consulting with a doctor about any concerns related to ED, he/she will first treat any and all health concerns that may be the root of the problem. Men with erectile dysfunction may need treatment for both physical and psychological causes. Despite the fact that ED can not usually be totally cured, there are many treatment options available that allow a man to be capable of having and maintaining an erection in order to have sex. For physical causes, the doctor will usually suggest medication, such as Viagra, Cialis, Kamagra jelly and Levitra, which are the most common erectile dysfunction pills in Switzerland.

Various treatments available

There are other options available as well, including a penis pump, implants, injections, or surgery. Treatment for ED that is caused by psychological factors could involve counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, or sex therapy, which would be undertaken with a partner. The psychological reasons that lead to erectile dysfunction are not as concrete and easy to understand as the physical contributions, but they are just as important and professionals are just as willing to solve them.

It is important to be sure that medicines for erection problems should be obtained only from an authorized Swiss prescriber like Viagrasuisse, such as your doctor, specialist nurse, or erectile specialist.

There are many off-brand medicines advertised and sold online that may be of poor quality and may contain ingredients that are not safe when taken in combination with other medicines you are on. They may also be unsafe due to other health problems you have. Plus, acquiring these drugs online without a prescription can also be against the law and would lead to serious legal ramifications
