You don’t have E.D. if you can get an erection.
FACT: Just because you can sometimes get fully or partially erect does not exclude E.D. as a possible condition.
Erectile dysfunction, or E.D., is defined as the inability to get or keep an erection firm enough to have sexual intercourse. So, you may have an erection, but if it’s not firm enough, it can still be a form of E.D. Having trouble “finishing”, or finishing too soon, are also possible symptoms of E.D.
FACT: Too many men are hard on themselves for having E.D. and they feel ashamed to talk to anyone about it. But, E.D. is so common that it affects more than 30 million men in the US alone.
Studies found that a whopping 52% of men experience some form of E.D. in their lifetime. That’s about one in every two men.
If you’re worried about what your partner or others might say, rest assured, the common perception is really not as harsh as comedians and media may lead us to believe.
There is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of with E.D. However, if you find this fact hard to internalize, you may consider seeing a professional to help identify the root cause of this feeling.
It only affects senior citizens.
FACT: E.D. does NOT affect only senior citizens. While it’s true that E.D. tends to be more prevalent amongst older men, it can affect just about any adult male regardless of age.
Underlying emotional issues, stress, physical issues (like diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure), or psychological issues like performance anxiety can all cause E.D. — it’s not just an age thing and is more common in younger men than you may think.
It can be cured by getting a “hotter” partner.
FACT: E.D. can NOT be cured by getting a hotter partner. It’s not that simple, and that might not even be an issue in the first place. There are many people living with E.D. who are fiercely attracted to their partners. Treating the many underlying causes of E.D. mentioned above are likely your best bet, not ditching your partner.
If you’re in a relationship with someone and it feels like the formerly strong spark is fading, you might want to talk it over with them. If it’s more than a matter of communication in the bedroom, you can look into pharmaceutical treatment like Rugiet Ready. Rugiet Ready contains APO, which is a dopamine promoter that primes the brain for sexual arousal. In fact, marriages have been saved by this customized intervention.
Pills, chewable tablets, and injections are the only ways to treat E.D.
FACT: This may have been true a few years back, but things are different now.
Rugiet Ready is not a pill, chewable tablet, or injection (ouch). It’s a sublingual. That’s what makes Rugiet Ready 5X faster to onset than pills & chewable tablets. Not only is it fast, but the medicine stays in your system for up to 36-hours, which means you can enjoy spontaneous performances and faster rebound times between rounds in the bedroom. Regaining confidence in your abilities can be life changing.
If you have E.D., or you think you have E.D., don’t let the misinformation hold you back from getting treatment and living your best life.
There is a long list of medications that cause sexual dysfunction as an unwanted side effect. Find out which ones might be causing your symptoms so that you can talk with your medical provider about available solutions.
