Christmas is one of the most special times of the year for many of us. It's an opportunity to spend more hours with our loved ones; a break in which we can celebrate the year gone by, take stock and often just cosy up by the hearth.
But for many men, the chance to spend some important and well-deserved intimate time with their partners while the office is closed can be just another cause for worry.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a condition which can lead to feelings of low self-esteem in men and consequently strong feelings of unhappiness. But at Express Pharmacy we are always keen to dispel some of the stigma surrounding ED and encourage even those most nervous of men to take a more balanced approach to this important but manageable issue.
The first point to be made about ED is that itis an extremely common condition, and one that only appears rare because so few men are prepared to talk about their difficulties. In fact, most men will have some form of erectile dysfunction at some point in their life.
Why is this not common knowledge? Because men are nervous about sharing their health concerns and particularly one that they may consider to make them appear to be less of a man - another unnecessary and false belief.
What exactly is erectile dysfunction
ED is a condition caused by the restriction of blood flow to the penis as a result of the narrowing of arteries. This can be caused by a variety of things such as the build-up of fat in these arteries.
Medications for ED treat this through the dilation or widening of these blood vessels, consequently increasing blood flow to the penis, leading to a sustained erection. It is important to note that this only occurs when you’re sexually aroused.
Treatment for erectile dysfunction
In 2013 the world's most famous treatment for erectile dysfunction, Viagra, came off patent. This has subsequently opened the door for a number of other pharmaceutical companies to come out with their own drugs, based around the same active ingredient - Sildenafil.
With competition has come a price war for the various manufacturers. For erectile dysfunction sufferers the result of this has resulted in treatments becoming more affordable than ever before - something particularly important for gents feeling the financial pinch this winter.
At Express Pharmacy we offer a variety of erectile dysfunction medications,including:
Levitra (recommended for diabetics).
