Men are prone to bragging when talking about their sexual prowess, but there are those who shy away from the topic because of embarrassing experiences. Most of these men suffer quietly from erectile dysfunction or ED.
Due to the Filipino’s ‘macho’ culture that spurns anything that exhibits weakness, men suffering from ED do not reveal their condition. But they should realize their relationship with their partner also suffers because they lack sexual energy.
ED is the inability of a man to initiate or maintain an adequate erection to complete sexual intercourse. Majority of ED cases are caused by psychological factors and lifestyle factors such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, obesity, lack of exercise and poor sleep.
Certain drugs and diseases such as diabetes and hypertension can also lead to ED. However, the most common cause of ED is the constriction or narrowing of arteries in the penis.
Constricted arteries prevent pressurized blood from entering the penis’ corpora cavernosa, making the penis limp. The corpora cavernosa are two sponge-like regions in the penis that becomes rigid when filled by blood.
Arteries are made of smooth muscles that allow blood flow only when relaxed. To loosen up these muscles, one of the most common treatments urologists prescribe is sildenafil citrate.
Sildenafil citrate is an ethical drug that allows the build up of cyclic guanosine monophosphate or cGMP, a chemical that relaxes the arteries in the penis when aroused.
This allows the patient to have a full erection during sexual intercourse for 4 hours.
Middle aged men who cannot maintain or sustain an erection because of reasons other than illness also use sildenafil nitrate to enhance their capabilities to consummate sexual intercourse.
To help Filipino men deal with ED, New Marketlink Pharmaceutical Corporation (NMPC), one of the country’s leading healthcare solutions providers, is now offering effective and affordable sildenafil citrate products.
For ED prevention and treatment, ask your doctor about NMPC products.
