To quote " I understand what you are saying about ED could be leading to other isssues but I dont seem to have any other problems. So yes, those of us in my category do ask, is there a male supplement that we can take that would give us virility and and help with ED???"
I think looking into acupuncture may help. This may be slightly off topic but it's related somewhat - I know a woman who is infertile and she went through ever test and there is no problem with her body at all. It's an unknown occurrence.
I really see the same thing happening to men wot ED, having it for unexplained reasons. This proves we as humans don't know as much about or bodies as we think! Acupuncture is one of those mysterious solutions that really work for some people.
I know some friends who had it for arthritis and it really worked. I don't see why it can't help with erectile dysfunction. In conjunction with penile pumps and vacuum therapy I wonder if this mix would work.
If you ever try this, please come back on here with an update I'd love to hear if your erectile dysfunction is under control.View Thread
I like your impression of sex like riding a bike, well put my friend! I also experienced the same thing as you. I found that for the first while having to hide in the bathroom using a pump was silly, I felt like the woman hiding away in the powder room before sex, it was weird but now it's part of the routine, it's what I do.
As for rings hurting, yes I agree,. The old style ribber is quite tight and uncomfortable but if you refer back to the store I suggested few months back they have new rings in stock I discovered when I went back to purchase a replacement sleeve for my pump. Try these new rings under http://penispumpwarehouse.com/cock-rings.php that is called "Steel Support", also consider the Adonis ring. I called the customer service line asking for softer rings (figured if I am going to pay shipping again then I might as well get a few new rings) and they suggested the Steel Support.
It is super thick and very soft but offers the same hard protection for the erection as the regular rubber rings. Try it and let me know what you think!View Thread
Injections and pumps are 2 good options however injections may sound good in theory until you hold a needle up to your penis... I don't want to think how much that would hurt! Caverject is the most popular doctor recommended injection, here are the basics http://www.caverject.com/Stepbystep.aspx
It's natural for the diameter to be larger when you're using the pump. This is where the term "penis enlargement" comes from (yes you will get a bigger penis - only while you're using the pump).
As for pain, it's not supposed to hurt but from my conversations I know that it's possible to feel like a strong pressure especially on the head. Maybe Dr. Sheldon Marks can elaborate this but my knowledge is that it's normal and you'll get accustomed to it. Also pumping slower will help. Alternatively you can try switching out your sleeve for a better one that is more loose and allows all your penis to experience the vacuum more evenly.View Thread
Thank you Mr. Marks, Your reply is very insgitful. I never looked further into it then just a blood flow problem. I understand how more problems can underlie this seemly simple male sexual health issue. Perhaps a talk with my doctor to make sure every else is flowing fine, not just to the "bottom" half of me but everywhere else too!View Thread
I can offer my opinion on a natural cure but it's not anything you consume, the penile pump is a good way to help with ED. My doctor actually recommended it to me as Viagra gave me bad headaches the next morning.
The electric ones in the doc's office are very expensive so he gave me the phone number for this place http://penispumpwarehouse.com and they set me up with a good pump that's easy to grip. Stay away from the hand bulbs as they are less effective, especially if your ED is from diabetes. Mine works perfectly well and it's all I need to do to enjoy sex with my wife.View Thread
