Achieving and maintaining maximum erectile capacity
The natural way…
We’re all well-aware of the term “erection” and “erectile dysfunction”. However, not many of have ever heard of “erectile capacity”. In fact both terms “erection” and “erectile capacity” while interrelated, are indeed different from one another.
Understanding the difference between erection & erectile capacity
Erection: Erection is the state or condition of enlargement and hardening of the penis caused by increased blood flow into the penis and decreased blood flow out of it as a result of sexual excitement.
Erectile capacity: The erectile capacity of the penis is its ability and extent to achieve and maintain sufficiently firm, hard and consistent erection until the time of ejaculation.
The mechanism of erection
An erection usually occurs as a result of sensory or mental sexual stimulation, but it may also occur spontaneously, often at night during erotic dreams. When a man is sexually stimulated, nerve signals trigger the flow of blood from the arteries into the spongy tissue of the penis.
The blood creates pressure, causing the penis to expand and become erect. When the penis muscles contract to stop the inflow of blood and open outflow channels, the erection subsides. If there is any interference with the nerve signals or blood flow responsible for activating erections, impotence may occur.
Medical drugs for weak or absent erectile capacity
Medications such as Viagra (Sildenafil) increase blood flow to the penis, which enhances sexual performance. Although these drugs can help to treat the problem, they have some adverse side effects which include headache, upset stomach, flushing and vision problems, and even cardiovascular problems. More serious conditions such as low blood pressure and heart attacks may occur as a result of these side effects. Men may also choose to have drugs injected or inserted into the penis, which widen the arteries that supply blood to the penis.
Surgery for erectile capacity
In more severe cases when impotence does not respond to treatments, surgery may be required. A device that simulates an erection (prosthesis) can be surgically implanted in the penis.
