Why a Penile Implant Can Do More Than Restore a Man’s Sex Life
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a common men’s health issue. Penile implants are the only permanent cure for ED. There are numerous secondary effects a man may experience as a result of ED, and the restoration of his normal sex life with the help of a penile implant can have a ripple effect to other areas.
More than 30 million men in America have ED, which is the inability to maintain an erection long enough to have sexual intercourse. Causes of ED, or impotence, range from stress or anxiety and physiological causes to more serious physical health concerns. Whether involved in a committed sexual relationship or not, ED has psychological effects on the man experiencing it.
The first step in treatment is usually medication. And there are others that may help, including injections, pellets, and vacuum-assisted devices. But for men who have tried these treatments without success, there is hope through a surgical penile implant. The procedure has a high success and satisfaction rate, and allows the man to have a natural-feeling and lasting erection.
Restoring the ability to have sexual intercourse can affect all areas of life.
· Increases confidence – no matter how frequent or infrequent you have sex, ED can make you feel incapable of accomplishing other things.
· Reduces stress – Knowing you are able to have sex whenever and wherever you want alleviates stress.
· Improves relationships – ED can have a devastating effect on relationships. Your partner may subconsciously take the blame for ED, or feel unattractive because of your condition. You may feel angry or neglected by their response. Removing ED from the equation can improve your relationship and restore intimacy.
· Raises self-esteem – along with confidence, self-esteem can suffer when you have ED. Sex is an integral part of human life and relationships.
