Erectile Dysfunction (ED is an inability to gain or maintain a healthy erection in the penis. This problem can be found in every 1 out of 5 men, who are between the age group of 40 to 65. Usually, this disturbing medical problem is caused by various underlying medical conditions including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular problems and low level of testosterone. There can other factors like psychological issues, nerve damage and improper secretion of hormones, which contribute to the main cause of Erectile Dysfunction (ED).
Generally, people resort to the first-line therapy i.e. oral drugs, to treat erectile dysfunction. Although the oral medications like Kamagra Tablets and Levitra can give some relief to the individual ailing with ED on a temporary basis, these ED drugs aren’t meant to cure the impotence completely.
Kamagra tablets are formulated using sildenafil as the prime ingredient which is an FDA approved medical compound to treat the dead erectile tissues of the reproductive organ. The efficacy of this drug on ED is proven and it has a half-life of 4 hours. Levitra is another efficacious ED drug whose effect has been scientifically proven on the impotence. It contains Vardanafil and has a longer half-life than sildenafil based drugs. Although these oral compounds can help in getting a quick and healthy erection with each dose, but if someone aims to improve the sexual health naturally, then there are some proven exercises which can significantly improve the erectile function of the penis.
A University from the West of United Kingdom conducted a study on the subject and found that certain pelvic exercises helped more than 35 percent of men with weak or damaged erectile function. These people followed the instructed exercises and they were able to regain their normal erectile function. Also, another 40 percent of the people who were instructed the pelvic exercises informed that although not fully, but they felt a significant improvement in their erectile abilities.
The scientific study bolstered the fact that pelvic floor exercises can improve the erectile disability of a man. More commonly known as Kegel exercises, women perform such exercises in order to regain muscle tone after childbirth. The same exercises can actually help a man who is facing deterioration in sexual health. Kegel exercises, if properly done help to strengthen bulbocavernosus muscles. This is a very important muscle which allows the transfer of blood into the penis and it helps during ejaculation as well.
The Right Ways To perform Kegel Exercises
People, who don’t understand where is the pelvic muscles, for them, the best way to locate the pelvic muscles is by stopping the stream of urination in the middle. The muscles you clench to perform such act is the lower pelvis (pelvic muscle). To exercise such muscles, one shall repeat the act of holding the stream of urine for 10 to 15 times. Squeezing those muscles for up to 5 seconds, and repeating it for as many times as possible strengthen the lower pelvis of the body, which can result in the great improvement of the erectile ability.
The Alternate way to Exercise the Pelvic Muscles
Squeezing the muscles and repeating the Kegel for more than 10 times might be a tough ask for many people. Those who find it difficult can use an alternate way to strengthen their pelvic muscles. You can squeeze the muscles of your anus, just like you hold the bowel movements. Squeeze the muscles and hold it for 5 to 10 seconds, once you start feeling the contraction, slowly release your breath and relax the muscles.
