Are you or your partner having trouble between the sheets?
In Australia, One in Five men, over the age of 40 deal with erectile dysfunction. One out ten Australian men over 40, can not achieve an erection at all. Taking an E.D. medication achieves an erection sufficient enough to have sex, in 70% of otherwise healthy men.
Often the price of the medication and whether or not your insurance plan covers it, hinders easy access to E.D. medication. Erectile dysfunction medications work, by improving the penis’ blood supply. With sexual stimulation, an E.D. drug dose produces an erection that can cover a full cycle of intercourse, from erection onset, to climax.
If your insurance does not cover erectile dysfunction medications, then each dose of E.D. medication can cost between $19 AUS to $26 AUS. In a fair number of situations, insurance will only cover a few doses per month, additional doses then require that payment is paid out of pocket.
Some men, that have other health issues, such as, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and damaged arteries, may not respond to E.D. drugs.
Erectile dysfunction, can impact a male psychologically and emotionally, regarding his sexual performance, even when it is a physical problem beyond his control.
80% of the men affected by E.D. have a physical problem, only 20% face a psychological issue. If you are looking for an answer to erectile dysfunction, you and your partner should try Levitra, which is also known as vardenafil. Levitra is one of the top 4 medications prescribed, when a patient is dealing with erectile dysfunction. When using Levitra, an erection can be achieved within 30-40 minutes after taking the medication and it has a duration of 4-5 hours. When taking Levitra, you must make sure it is taken on an empty stomach. Eating before taking Levitra will block the absorption of the drug, and the medication will not work
Some side effects of Levitra (listed from more frequently reported, to less frequently reported) are: headache, flushing, upset stomach, nasal congestion, urinary tract infections, vision problems, diarrhea, dizziness, and rash. Some patients have described having a blue tint to their vision after taking Levitra. If you take nitrates, you should not take Levitra, since both medications combined can create a dangerous drop in blood pressure. Urinary tract medications, called alpha-blockers can also cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure, and if you are taking this kind of medication, you should make sure that you wait 4 hours after taking an alpha-blocker, before taking Levitra.
Often E.D. is a signal your body is sending out, that you may have an underlying heart condition.
E.D. can put a large strain on a relationship. Often an E.D. patient’s partners may believe that they are no longer physically attracted to them, are having an affair or think that they no longer enjoy sex with them. Only 10% of Australian men with erectile dysfunction, seek treatment for the problem.
Restoring intimacy with a partner, leads to a happy and healthy sex life. Seeking treatment for E.D. and maintaining physical intimacy with your partner, is key to a successful relationship.
