Impotence Cures and Treatments for Impotence

by Nick Swanson

Impotence or erectile dysfunction is a common complaint among middle-aged men and this leads to the search for impotence cures. While there are many ways to successfully treat the condition, there are not any miracle impotence cures that will magically give a man an erection. Instead of searching the internet looking for impotence cures and products that promise instant results, you need to make an appointment with your doctor to have a complete physical exam to help him determine the cause of your problem. While the doctor will not be able to offer you impotence cures, he will be able to recommend a course and action and treatment options.

Medications may not be impotence cures, but are available treatments for men suffering with erectile dysfunction. For men with erectile dysfunction, a doctor may prescribe medications such as Viagra, Levitra or Cialis to help men improve blood flow to achieve and maintain an erection. There are side effects associated with these drugs. While they are not impotence cures the medications do work to increase blood flow to the penis during sexual arousal. The medications work well and may seem like impotence cures to many men, but these impotence cures come with side effects ranging from headache and heartburn to more serious side effects, such as chest pain, breathing difficulties and dizziness that warrant emergency medical attention.

There are a variety of herbal products that claim to be impotence cures, but you must be careful when choosing among these self-proclaimed impotence cures, as they are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, so the success is not guaranteed. Some herbal impotence cures include supplements that contain L-arginine, ginkgo, zinc, horny goat weed and ginseng to name a few. Men should only use herbal impotence cures under a doctor’s supervision to ensure the supplements will not interact with other medications. Sometimes men can benefit from combining impotence cures, such as the mechanical device along with medications. If ever in doubt consult a physician for help.

There are also mechanical products that claim to be impotence cures. Men can order and use these products discreetly. The vacuum pumps are probably the most popular products. While not impotence cures, the vacuums do works to bring blood flow to the penis to form an erection by using suction. For some, penis rings may also be types of impotence cures. This rings slip over the base of the penis to prevent blood loss. Sometimes the vacuum and the penis ring are used in combination as impotence cures to help the erection last long enough to have intercourse.
