Men...don't be shy!! | Blog

There seems to be such a stigma about talking about sexual issues. From the good old lights on or lights off argument to more serious things like low libido and erectile dysfunction. We seem to be too ''British'' to talk openly about sex and all the stuff that goes with it which is such a shame. Why are we so embarrassed? Majority of people do it/have done it so why the stigma...especially when it comes to talk about problems in that department.

It is estimated that one in ten men suffer erectile dysfunction and according to new research men who have diabetes are very likely to develop problems in this area. In a recent study involving 88, 577 men discovered that more than half of the men included with diabetes suffered with impotence. This shocking study has called for more attention to be paid to what can be done to help.
Why am I writing about this?? Well if there is anyone out there who wants help or thinks that a loved one may need help then here is what you can do:

1. Lifestyle changes
According to the NHS one of the causes of ED (erectile dysfunction) is the narrowing of arteries in the mans bits. To help this men can try to loose weight, lower their cholesterol and/or improve their cardio fitness.

2. Therapy
It may not be a physical problem that is causing ED. It could well be a physiological one and therapy can help with that. It may not need to be a professional as even opening up to a loved one can help but if more help is needed then ask you GP.

3. Medication.
There are hundreds of different creams, lotions and medications that can be found to assist with ED. If you husband or partner is too shy to speak to their GP about it then you can buy ED tablets online but I would always suggest making sure you know what your buying and you do your research first.

So there you have it. This may seem like a bit of an odd thing to write about on here but ED can effect anyone at any time BUT especially after bring a baby home and/or throwing children into the mix. So if this post helps just one person out there then I will be happy as I've made a difference.
