Weak Erections: Causes and Treatments

Weak erection is just what it says it is: The inability to maintain a strong enough erection for intercourse. In worst-case scenarios, this could also be classified as erectile dysfunction.

Causes of Weak Erections

There are many things that can cause men to have weak erections, from various conditions such as kidney disease, prostate cancer, or diabetes. There are many other things that can cause this problem that are not diseases, however, such as alcohol, tobacco, drugs, and even some prescription drugs.

Conditions such as these are not the only things that can cause weak erections. Sadly, age plays a large factor in this as well. As men get older, their bodies start to go through changes – and it becomes harder to achieve things such as strong erections.

There are actually many psychological reasons that can cause weak erection problems; the most common is actually performance anxiety – which means just what it says: many men have a fear of not being able to perform up to the standards that they expect – perhaps once they had a problem with their partner, and that’s forever plagued them – then again, they may have never had any problems, but just start expecting things to go south one day.

Life also gets in the way, and over time, stress, anxiety, and depression can start to hinder a mans body. Various things such as money problems, or maybe problems with the family, stress at work – all of these play a part.

Bad eating habits and poor exercise habits play a part as well!

Treatments for Weak Erections

Many men think that they have to turn to strong prescription drugs or questionable products that give very wild claims, but this may not be the case. Before spending a lot of money on various products, the best thing to do first is for a man to look at himself and check some very simple things.

1. Diet: A vast majority of men have poor eating habits, and they may or may not know about it. Sadly, proper diet isn’t something that’s normally taught to us in schools, so we grow up learning what we can as we go along. The first order of business is to look at our diets and determine just how well we’re eating.

Fine tune this first: Start by cutting out all of the extra sweet foods, fatty foods, sugary sodas, and any other junk food. More often than not, these simple changes make all the difference in the world in our diets.

2. Exercise: The next thing a man should look at is how much (or how little) he exercises. This is another area that most of us could use some improvement in. You don’t have to join a gym and start a crazy exercise routine to make changes to your body. Anything at all helps – you can start by walking around the block at home, or doing sit-ups and pushups in your living room.

Anything that will get your body moving and sweating some will make positive changes.

3.Stress: This point can be a little harder to change sometimes, depending on what’s going on. But once a man tunes his diet and starts to exercise regularly, the next thing to focus on is our stress level. Take a long hard look at what’s going on in life. What sort of things are stressing you out? Again, it could be anything – but the usual suspects are work, bill, or family related. We can’t help it, life is tough at times! Find out what’s stressing you out and work on fixing it. Of course, this makes it sound very simple – but sometimes we can’t change these things by ourselves. Rely on your family, your friends, and talk to your doctor about how to turn things around.

Our Last word…

Believe it or not, by just changing your eating habit, increasing your physical activity and reducing stress can make all the difference in the world and turn your weak erection into something strong – without the use of expensive products! Sure, we summarized these points into a few paragraphs, so take it upon yourself to research these in greater detail – you want to make sure that you do things right. This is your body, your life, and you only get one of them.
