As a man, you should know that it is normal to be unable to get or sustain an erection (erectile dysfunction (ED)) on occasion. If this happens to you, it should cause unnecessary worry or stress because it doesn’t mean you have ED. But if over 4 or more weeks, you have observed the issue for several days, you may have ED
Many men chase after herbal remedies, medications, and supplements even from unverified sources. Sometimes, certain habits you engage in ignorantly can cause ED and if you don’t stop them, the remedies you seek may be ineffective.
In this article, according to Healthline, I’ll like to enlighten you on habits that cause ED:
1. Excessive alcohol intake. Men who drink alcohol excessively to manage ED symptoms need to know that that remedy is not just only temporal but also ends up increasing the risk of having erectile issues. If you keep drinking alcohol and alcoholic beverages in excess, you may experience ED more frequently
2. Cycling and biking. Physical activity plays a very important role in managing ED symptoms. However, cycling has been researched to put pressure on the blood vessels and nerves in your pelvic area which could result in ED. If you love to cycle for longer periods, you should try seats that put lesser pressure on you
3. Not keeping weight In check. Various research has discovered that having excess weight or obesity can affect your performance as a man. It also increases your risk of having medical conditions like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol which may result in erectile problems. A balanced diet and regular exercise can manage your weight
