Can Male Enhancement Pills Cause Erectile Dysfunction?

Male enhancement pills are not typically associated with causing erectile dysfunction, as most people take them because they already experience some level of erectile dysfunction. However, male enhancement pills are known to cause a number of side effects ranging from mild to life-threatening.

According to Mayo Clinic, possible side effects from taking male enhancement pills may include:

  • Indigestion
  • Blurred vision
  • Headaches
  • A blue tinge to your vision
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Congestion or a runny nose
  • Back pain

These side effects, depending on the severity, hardly seem worth the benefits of achieving an erection, and they are considered the “mild” ones. More serious effects may arise from taking male enhancement pills. Healthline writes that side effects may include:

  • Loss of vision
  • An erection that lasts over four hours, also known as priapism
  • Sudden changes in your hearing

Again, these risks hardly seem worth the benefits. Fortunately for you, there are proven, non-invasive treatments for erectile dysfunction that do not come with the threat of these adverse side effects.

Do Not Settle for Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction can completely disrupt your love life, and has been known to lead to serious side effects, according to Cleveland Clinic. One symptom linked to erectile dysfunction is depression, which may cause:

  • Fatigue
  • Low self-esteem
  • Loss of pleasure and interest in activities you once enjoyed
  • Changes in appetite
  • Apathy

This shows how deeply erectile dysfunction can affect your life if you leave it untreated. You do not have to risk suffering the side effects that may come from using male enhancement pills either, as there are natural treatments for ED that come with little to no known side effects.

Natural Treatments For ED

Two of the natural therapies that you can receive for treatment of ED are:

  • GAINSWave® Therapy, a form of shockwave for erectile dysfunction
  • The Priapus Shot, also known as the P-Shot

As you will see, these methods are supported by proven results and do not come with the potential for side effects that are known to arise from male enhancement pills.

Explaining The P-Shot

The P-Shot is short for Priapus Shot, and it is a treatment that involves injecting your own plasma-enriched blood into various spots on your penis. The P-Shot may have a number of desired effects due to an increase in blood flow to your penis. These effects may counteract the effects of your erectile dysfunction, and may include improvement in the girth of your penis, the intensity and stamina of your erections, and your overall sexual health.

The P-Shot Is Supported by Science

A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine concluded that the use of platelet-enriched plasma (PRP) was instrumental in improving erectile function in the subjects of the study. PRP is the basis for the P-Shot, and it is fair to view these results as supportive of the P-Shot’s efficacy.

GAINSWave® Therapy May Reduce the Effects of Your Peyronie’s Disease

It is important to speak with your doctor if you know or suspect that you are experiencing the symptoms of Peyronie’s disease. He or she may be able to determine through X-rays and other diagnostic procedures whether a buildup of plaque in your penis is causing or contributing to your Peyronie’s disease.

Your doctor can advise you on your options for improving your condition, and one of those options may be GAINSWave® Therapy. This therapy involves the use of low-intensity sound waves, which course through penile tissue, removing plaque and stimulating blood flow in the penis.

Cleveland Clinic has written that low-intensity sound wave therapy promotes blood flow to the penis as well as the recruitment of stem cells in the area and, over time, “improvement in the ability to get erections.” This treatment and its effects may ultimately address some or all of the effects of your Peyronie’s disease.

GAINSWave® Therapy Uses Sound Waves to Improve Erectile Health

The buildup of plaque in the body can cause various health problems. When plaque builds up in the penis, it can cause erectile dysfunction. You should first ensure that the plaque buildup is not a sign of an underlying health problem, such as heart disease, as erectile dysfunction can signal problems with your heart. Next, consider the value of GAINSWave® shockwave therapy to reduce the plaque plaguing your penis.

Clearing plaque from the penis could be effective in treating various conditions that cause erectile dysfunction, such as Peyronie’s disease.
