The Importance Of Good Erectile Health
Good erectile health is important for all men. Firm erection is of course needed for satisfying sexual intercourse. It also reduces the risk of penis injury, which can cause Peyronie's disease. It is also important for men that already have Peyronie's disease, as erectile problems can aggravate the Peyronie's condition.
In 80-90% of cases erectile dysfunction is believed to have physical causes, i.e. be the result of underlying health problems or lifestyle choices.
The risk of erectile dysfunction therefore increases as men get older.
You need to take responsibility for your penis. So learn how to look after him. He is worth it.
How To Improve Erection Quality
There are number of things that men can, and should, do to improve their erectile health and erection quality.
Know Your Penis – Penis Examination
All health problems are easiest to deal with in the early stages. Regularly examining your penis will help you to discover any potential penis problems early on.
It is good idea to establish a monthly routine for penis examination . For example, do it on certain days, like the first or last day of any month. Take a warm bath or a shower and not only check the penis, carefully exam the whole genital area.
Don't know what you are looking for? It's easy, you are looking for anything out of the ordinary.
If You Notice Any Penis Problems – See A Doctor
No matter how insignificant it may seem, if there is anything that is causing you concern see a doctor a.s.a.p.
Your physician / general practitioner (GP) may be able to put your mind at rest, or else refer you to the relevant specialist. The sooner you react, the easier it is to deal with any potential penis problems.
Avoid Penis Injury
As all men with Peyronie's disease know, avoiding penis injury is very important. Following these tips will help you to minimize the risk of penis injury:
- Don't attempt to have sexual intercourse without a firm erection
- Take care when manually handling your penis, e.g. when masturbating, or if you are doing any manual penis exercises
- Avoid sexual positions that put awkward pressure or strain on your penis
- Always keep your genitals protected when playing contact sports
Monitor Your Erectile Health
Good erectile health is not only important for having sex. Your penile health is also one of the best indicators of your overall health. Firm erections indicate good blood circulation. While poor quality erections can be the first sign of various health problems, like high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol level.
Monitoring your erection quality on a regular basis allows you to detect various health problems early on. Using Erectile Health Monitor is an easy way to keep track of your erection health.
Improve Your Penis Fitness
I sometimes joke that all men should get penis vacuum pump on their 50th birthday. Joking aside, penis pumps are excellent way to "exercise the penis".
Young men tend to have erections more frequently than older men do. And like with most things, the more you do it, the better you are at it. Frequent erections strengthen the penile tissues and improve the blood flow to the penis, resulting in better erection quality.
Erection may begin in the brain but it is the regulation of blood flow into, and out of, the penis that makes the erection physically possible.
The penis is a cylindrical organ with two erection chambers (corpus cavernosa). When there is an increased blood flow into the corpus cavernosa, the tissues muscles contract to store the blood.
As the tunica stretches, it blocks the veins that take blood away from the corpora cavernosa, meaning the blood is trapped within the penis. This increased blood flow causes the penis to enlarge and stiffen… the penis is erect.
Men with erectile dysfunction have problems stimulating blood to the penis for long durations, or for some reason cannot have an erection at all. Prolonged erection problem can cause the penile tissues to shrink and reduce the penis blood circulation.
This is where penis vacuum pumps can help. Penile vacuum therapy is sometimes called "penis gym", as regular usage improves the "penis fitness".
Few weeks' regular use of Penis Vacuum Pump can help to stretch penis tissues back to their normal size, as well as improve the penile blood circulation.
Your Lifestyle Affects Your Health – And Your Penis
We all know that our lifestyle can affect our health, including our penis. Good balanced diet and regular exercise is good for our overall health, including our penile health.
Smoking is especially bad for penis health. Studies have shown that smoking can decrease sexual desire and satisfaction, damage the smooth muscle inside the penis, and even affect your penis size.
Stop smoking may be the best thing that smokers can do for their penile health.
Take Responsibility For Your Penis
During your lifetime, you take lot of decisions that affect your penis. Make sure those decisions are good ones.
You decide whom you sleep with and how (safe sex). You decide if and how you take care of your penis (regular examinations, check-ups, etc).
And you may need some penis treatments at some point in your life, e.g. to treat Peyronie's, erectile dysfunction, STD, etc. You may even choose to have some optional penile treatment, like genital piercings, vasectomy, penis enlargement therapy, genital tattoo, etc.
Make sure you do your homework carefully before starting any treatment that can affect your penile and erectile health.
Penile and erectile health problems are very sensitive topics for most men. This makes it easy for unscrupulous people to take advantage of them.
Always take everything you read or hear about penile health with a pinch of salt in the beginning. Double check all information, look for confirmations, and seek professional advice.
