Guy Fawkes night is one of the most popular days for celebration in the country and, undeniably, it serves up a very useful metaphor for today’s topic of discussion. So ahead of the 5th of November we’re talking about erectile dysfunction and the best ways to avoid misfiring when it matters most.
Whether you are in a long-term relationship or starting out on a new one, we all know that sex is both something men look forward to, but also approach with an element of apprehension and uncertainty. Of course, every man wants to make a good impression with their partner and serve up a memorable experience for all the right reasons.
Some men, however, can be left feeling let down by their body. Erectile dysfunction (ED) can swiftly bring a halt to any fireworks in the bedroom, be a cause for embarrassment and lead some gentlemen to swear off sex altogether.
But in reality this need not be the case. ED is something that can be managed and treated with the right help. It is also important for men to understand that struggling to perform in the bedroom is a common occurrence, experienced by most males at some point in their lives – and that worrying about it too much can actually exacerbate the problem.
But what is ED and how can it be treated?
What is erectile dysfunction?Erectile dysfunction or impotence is one of the most frustrating problems men face. And contrary to popular belief it rarely has anything to do with how attracted a man is to a sexual partner.
Erectile dysfunction is typically caused by a narrowing of the arteries that take blood to the penis. In some cases it is due to the build up of deposits of fat in these blood vessels, a problem which can be treated both through erectile dysfunction medication (a tablet taken before sex) and also through lifestyle changes.
What areas of my lifestyle do I need to change in order to prevent erectile dysfunction?While erectile dysfunction can affect any male, it is more common in those with weight problems, poor diet or heavy alcohol drinkers. Erectile dysfunction is also more often found in older males. There are also links between erectile dysfunction and psychological issues such as stress, depression and anxiety.

Making lifestyle changes to improve general health and wellbeing can have a marked impact on the ability to achieve and maintain an erection. Through healthy eating and regular exercise, the body is more likely to react as a man would wish during sex.
Not only that but feeling healthier can improve confidence and self-esteem, aspects that also have a bearing on a man’s ability to achieve and maintain an erection.

However you choose to handle the issue of erectile dysfunction it is important to stay calm about the issue and not allow the problem to impact on your relationship. Remember that you are not alone and that help is on hand to ensure that the spark in your relationship blossoms the way you wish it to.
