How to Keep an Erection? How to Get a Boner? How to Stay Hard Without Pills?

No matter how you ask it, erectile dysfunction is one of the most searched topics on the internet today.

The good news is that if you are one of the estimated 30 million men within the United States affected by regularly occurring ED there are a myriad of treatments available to you, including the revolutionary, non-invasive GAINSWave therapy which has helped hundreds of thousands of men regain their sexual function quickly, painlessly and naturally.

Erectile dysfunction is a treatable medical condition that is typically diagnosed by a medical professional and is identifiable by regularly occurring difficulty getting and maintaining erections sustainable enough for sex and orgasm.

Lab testing can often diagnose the root causes of this dysfunction, but for those affected, the questions then become

What can I do about my loss of erection and how can I maintain longer erections?

To really understand and address ED, it is worth investing in some time discussing how erections occur, what are some of the underlying causes of erectile dysfunction, and what are some of the ED therapy options currently available.

What Causes an Erection?

To understand how erections occur, it’s important to understand the anatomy of the penis and the six important regions that directly affect erections and orgasms:

Of these, the corpora cavernosa is the most significantly responsible for achieving erections.

Erections occur when the blood vessels within the corpora cavernosa open and begins to fill with blood. As the amount of blood within the corpora cavernosa increases, so too does the pressure. A special membrane called the tunica albuginea within the shaft that traps the blood within the penis. This process engorges the penile shaft with blood which then creates and sustains an erection.

Erections are not just achieved by physical sensation alone. They typically also require some form of physical and/or mental stimulation to be successful.

Physical Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction currently affects over 30 million men in the United States, which following a diagnosis, begin to ask the same question: how did this happen to me?

Generally speaking, the underlying cause of a failed erection can be pinpointed to one of two reasons:

1. Lack of Blood Flow to the Penis

Vasculogenic issues are the most common culprit behind erectile dysfunction. ED stemming from vasculogenic causes are typically impacted by several factors such as diabetes, anxiety, obesity, and depression. This is why your physician may prescribe maintaining a healthy lifestyle as one of the first steps toward restoring penile blood flow and optimizing sexual health.

2. Arterial and Venous Plaque Buildup (Atherosclerosis)

Atherosclerosis is normally associated with lifestyle and can be caused by a variety of factors including high blood pressure, smoking, and high cholesterol. Additionally, aging, diet, exercise and other conditions can contribute to atherosclerosis.

Among the contributors to this condition, diet ranks as one of the primary influences for the development of atherosclerosis. Factors such as high sugar concentration in the blood can create a microbiome that is hostile to and may damage the nerves and blood vessels within the penis.

Treating Erectile Dysfunction

Traditionally, there are three ways to alleviate ED in men: medication (oral or injectable), surgery (reconstructive and implant), and GAINSWave therapy.

For men seeking a safe, all-natural solution for their ED, shockwave therapy is fast becoming the preferred choice over medications and surgery, which may have unwanted side effects or painful recovery.

Medications

For many men, medications simply do not offer the simplicity or spontaneity normally associated with an erection. With pills, one often has to premeditate or plan sexual activity and even if this does not become an obstacle to regular sexual activity, the risk of building up a tolerance to the medicine is a real problem. Couple that with unintentional side effects and sometimes painful injections and it’s not difficult to understand why some men seek out a safer, less painful treatment for their ED. It is also from this desire that many men choose the one-time discomfort of a surgery over medication when addressing their impotence.

Surgeries

Two major obstacles for treating ED with surgery include the high cost and potential side effects of treatment. For many, the side effects of male enhancement surgery can include the loss of sensitivity within the penis, temporary and long-term nerve damage, and worsening erectile dysfunction. The last symptom might sound confusing for someone undergoing surgery in order to achieve erectile function, but as no surgical procedure is ever guaranteed, corrective surgery sometimes may cause more harm than good.

GAINSWave Therapy

A revolutionary treatment for ED and sexual optimization, interest in GAINSWave continues to grow. As the non-invasive alternative to painful surgeries and costly medications, GAINSWave has become the preferred treatment for thousands of men across the country. Beloved for its lack of side effects, pain and recovery, men across the country are increasingly choosing GAINSWave over other available treatments.

FAQs for GAINSWave Therapy

How Does GAINSWave Therapy Treatment Work?

GAINSWave works by utilizing clinically proven acoustic therapy to optimize erections and sexual performance by increasing the blood flow to the penis.

GAINSWave therapy remedies erectile dysfunction by addressing its underlying causes: plaque buildup (atherosclerosis) and lack of blood flow within the penis. GAINSWave achieves this by first breaking up residual plaque deposits and then instigating the release of growth factors which creates new blood vessels and nerve bundles within the penis.

Is Shockwave Therapy Painful?

No. Shockwave therapy is not painful. The administration of these low-intensity pulses is similar to being tapped energetically. Although not painful, those who prefer to feel nothing at all may opt to use a numbing cream during treatment.

Do I Need to Take Medication with GAINSWave?

No. One of the most compelling reasons many choose GAINSWave over other, more invasive treatments is that being treated doesn’t have to affect other parts of your life. There are no medications to remember, no side effects or recovery to account for, and with treatments that can be administered in less than thirty minutes, you can be treated on your lunch break and still have enough time to grab something on your way back to the office.

How Can I Keep an Erection with GAINSWave Shockwave Therapy?

Perhaps one of the most important questions is how GAINSWave shockwave therapy helps men to optimize their sexual health and overcome erectile dysfunction. This is achieved in two ways.

First, when administered, the device sends out low-intensity sound waves that break up plaque that has been building up within the penis. The removal of these deposits allows for the immediate restoration of blood flow to the area, which is why so many men experience positive results directly following their first treatment.

Second, the application of these sound waves also instigates the release of the body’s natural growth factors within the penis. These growth factors are used by the body to grow new nerve bundles and blood vessels, which over the course of treatment results in improved erections and more satisfying orgasms.
