Little Blue Pill Alternatives

Excuse me sir, do you have an equipment malfunction? Don’t worry, there are plenty of effective treatments. We have pills, pellets, shots, and there’s also surgery. They are all nearly 100 percent effective in total so don’t be so hesitant to ask for a hand in this area.

Besides Viagra there are several other alternatives to getting your much needed care below the belt. If it isn’t working for you, don’t assume the worst. Talk to your doctor about the other alternatives. Your special someone will thank you, unless you’re thanking yourself.

Prostaglandin E1 injections

I know the words “injection” and “penis” bring about a sort of terror for many men, but this helps you become erect within 10 to 15 minutes. There is no waiting around for two to three hours for the right moment to strike. Plus, this is effective in 90 percent of men with erectile dysfunction. The needle is so small, most guys don’t find it difficult pricking themselves, so this might be worth a shot (pun intended).

Prostaglandin E1 pellets

If you are lacking the cojones to deliver the needle there is no need to fear. There is another way to deliver the prostaglandis. By inserting the pellets as a suppository into the tip of the penis you can receive results, but it will take about 20 minutes to a half hour longer to kick in. Also, it might give a menstrual-like pain from the dramatic increase of blood flow to the pelvis. However, it is an option if you are needle-phobic.

Vacuum Erection Device

For an inexpensive option (about $300-$400) a vacuum device works relatively well. You attach a pump to the end of the penis, then you place a ring (similar to a rubber band) around the base of your shaft to trap the blood. The downside to the vacuum devise is you may still experience a little bit more flop than you were hoping for. However, the plus side is if anyone finds this in your nightstand drawer, you can pass it off as a gag gift.

L-arginine

This amino acid can boost blood flow below the belt by boosting the production of nitric oxide, a chemical that dilates your vessels. One gram a day is normally recommended but ask your practitioner what is right for you. Exceeding the recommended amount L-arginine can reactivate the herpes virus. Let’s keep the problems to a minimum.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Very rarely is a shortage of testosterone the reason your penis jumps ship. This is only the instance 5 percent of the time and is normally combined with a loss of libido and lethargy. A test from your doctor can determine if this is the reason your erections are less than solid. There are several modes of delivery for testosterone; shots, gels, and implants. They all increase nitric oxide to dilate your vessels, so they are very likely to be responsive, but on overdoes of testosterone can cause your testicles to shrink. Therefore many practitioners prefer topical, since is easy to ensure there is a normal level of the hormone delivered.

Only 75% of males with erectile dysfunction seek help. Now you know there are options to help you pitch a tent this weekend and enjoy one of the perks of life.
