Debunking the myths 

The exact cause of erectile dysfunction is still being debated, and every case is unique. Our understanding of this condition has come a long way, but many myths still persist: 

Myth: ED is a natural part of aging; it’s harmless. 

Erectile dysfunction and premature ejactulation are two common issues among men. The statistics vary, but around one third of men will experience erectile dysfunction at some point in their lives. While erectile dysfunction is more common among men as they grow older, it’s not a natural part of aging. 

In fact, this misconception leads younger men to feel isolated, while older men resign themselves to the issue. Erectile dysfunction is never natural and can actually be a symptom of a number of medical conditions, including: 

If you’re struggling with erectile dysfunction, seeking help is the first step to finding a solution. You don’t have to live with ED, and getting a professional diagnosis can help you locate the root of your condition and begin treatment. 

Myth: Pills are your only treatment option for ED. 

Many men are hesitant to seek treatment for ED because they don’t want to become reliant on pills, or they feel embarrassed about taking medication before intimate encounters. This doesn’t have to be the case. There are many alternative treatments, such as: 

Myth: ED can be treated using herbal/natural remedies. 

Taking supplements and herbal remedies without the approval of your doctor is risky, and there’s no research that shows that this has a notable effect on ED. While there’s nothing stopping you from treating erectile dysfunction yourself, you’ll get better results with the help of a medical professional. 

There might also be underlying issues causing your ED, from PTSD to high blood pressure. Treating these root problems with other medications, treatments, or therapy can also improve your erectile dysfunction.
