My name is Lilith Maclin and if you suffer from a digestive disorder, you can find a wealth of information about this type of medical condition in my blog. Three years ago, my husband was having severe stomach cramps and his doctor told him that he had a digestive disorder called ulcerative colitis. After my husband was diagnosed, I did thorough research to learn how to control and manage this disorder. We kept track of everything that my husband ate and when a certain food caused a flare-up of his condition, he eliminated that food from his diet. By learning all we could about this digestive disorder, my husband has been able to live pain free. If you want more information about this disorder and how to manage it, you can find it here by reading my blog.
Even though it affects 40% of men sometime during their lifetime, erectile dysfunction is generally a hard topic to address, as it can be embarrassing to those who have it and distasteful to think about for those who don't. Fortunately, as technology marches on, more and more cures for erectile dysfunction are being tried and tested, which is a good thing for both those who suffer from it and those who worry they might in the long run. So if you're looking for some assurance that efforts are being made towards putting the "fun" back in "dysfunction," then here's what you need to know.
Here Comes the Spiderman
One of the effects of being bitten by the Brazilian wandering spider (the most venomous spider in the world) is an oddly long-lasting erection. But scientists are choosing to see the good in this odd side effect and are modifying it to act as an erectile dysfunction medication. Already showing good results in animal trials, this fix promises all the benefits of oral erectile dysfunction drugs without the unpleasant side effects.
If spider venom is a little too wild for your sensibilities, then how about considering dynamite? That's only partly an exaggeration; scientists are already on human trials with a gel containing nitroglycerin, the same ingredient that give dynamite its explosive results. The gel is said to work much faster than traditional erectile dysfunction medicine like Viagra, because it is applied directly the penis and absorbs quickly. Best of all, the dosage is a dab of the gel around the size of a pea, giving you the right amount of bang for your buck.
When talking about what's in your jeans, it's important to first consider what's in your genes and how it can affect your performance. Scientists are looking into the benefits of a transfer gene (a potassium channel that is sensitive to calcium) into men who suffer from erectile dysfunction. This gene injection can last for up to 6 months, rather than an hour or so, and has the distinct benefit of only being in play during sexual stimulation. Because it doesn't flush out of your system like oral erectile dysfunction medications, it allows for sex to be more spontaneous, rather than a planned event.
These treatments are still in the testing stage, so it may be a bit before you see them on supermarket shelves. But knowing that there's progress and hope for the future can make your current state a little less hard to bear.
