Can Erectile Dysfunction Be Reversed?

What is Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?

It can be either a dysfunction that is rarely suffered or one that is a constant problem. Getting and maintaining an erection involves blood vessels, nerves, muscles, brain messaging, and psychology.

Know The Do’s and Don’ts Of Penis Enlargement Surgery

Penis enlargement (or male enhancement) surgery is also known as penoplasty. It refers to a variety of techniques intended to increase the girth and length of the penis. The surgery itself involves dividing the ligament to connect the penis to the pubic bone. Doing this allows the penis shaft to become more visible.

Effective Use Of Shockwave Therapy To Treat Erectile Dysfunction

Reproductive and sexual health in men are not discussed as often as it should be due to the stigma attached to it in society. However, with modern, high-functioning lifestyles and increasing stress levels, many men face mild to moderate issues when it comes to their reproductive health.

Risk Factors For Erectile Dysfunction In Young Men

Reproductive health is a very sensitive topic among young men. While they don’t regard it as part of their general health, even issues that need attention are overlooked due to embarrassment or other emotional judgements surrounding the matter.
