Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is one of the most common sexual disorders for men to experience. One of the most common myths about ED is that an older man wakes up one day and suddenly he cannot get an erection. For the majority of men, this is not the case. ED is usually a progressive process and occurs slowly over time. Our dedicated team at Corewave™ wants you to know the warning signs so that we can assist you and get your sex life back on track.

Difficulty getting an erection

The first and most obvious symptom of this disorder is a man slowly losing his ability to start an erection. In the beginning, a man might find it takes longer than usual to get a full erection. This may progress to a point when erections have to be initiated with more and more stimulation.

Trouble maintaining an erection

While ED is famous for preventing men from getting erections, it also prevents them from maintaining one. It’s not uncommon for a man with ED to find himself becoming less hard during sex. This can result in some embarrassing situations in the middle of sex. If you find yourself having trouble maintaining an erection even when engaging in sexual activity, you might be in the early stages of developing ED.

Reduced Sexual Desire

Reduced sexual desire is not uncommon for men that have ED. This can be caused by biological or emotional issues. An imbalance of hormones in the body, like testosterone, may lower the ability of your erections functioning properly. Men with ED may feel inadequate and embarrassed about their condition. These negative emotions, which often manifest as anxiety, shame, and depression lower a man’s desire to have sex. Recognizing this issue is essential to beginning your process of finding a solution.

Loss of Sensitivity in the Penis

One of the lesser-known aspects of ED is a loss of sensitivity in the penis. Many men, as they grow older, may notice it takes more stimulation to obtain an erection. This could be due to hormonal levels, medical problems or problems with the receptors or nerves in the penis as one ages. Lastly, sensitivity problems for some men can be due to the lack of rigidity to the penis. If you are noticing any changes in the feeling of your penis, let us know so that we can assist you.
