Erectile Dysfunction treatment- exercises that may help

Many men experience Erectile Dysfunction (E.D) occasionally- for example if they are under stress. However, for some, the inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse can be a more frequent and distressing problem- these men may wish to explore erectile dysfunction treatment options.

It’s well known that there are medicines available to treat E.D. However men with this condition may be unaware that there are specific exercises which may offer effective Erectile Dysfunction treatment, and could make all the difference in the bedroom. Kegel exercises for men can help to improve sexual function, as well as urinary and bowel incontinence, by strengthening the pelvic floor.

 Erectile Dysfunction treatment with Kegel Exercises:

  • Find the right muscles by stopping urination midstream, or tightening the muscles which stop you from passing wind
  • Perform some reps – hold the muscles for 5 seconds then relax. Slowly build up the number of reps until you can repeat this 10 or 20 times, 2 to 3 times per day.
  • Start by doing them lying down, and then progress to doing while sitting, standing or walking

Aerobic exercise may also improve your ED by increasing blood flow to the penis, and by combating obesity, diabetes and high cholesterol.

  • Brisk walking for 30 minutes, 3-4 times per week may be enough to improve erectile dysfunction.

So, whilst  Erectile Dysfunction treatment with medication may be helpful, it’s important to remember that staying fit and active, and performing Kegel Exercises can be natural ways to improve symptoms.
