How many times during the last four weeks did you have the feeling that your bladder wasn't completely emptied after urination? This article will be extremely helpful to many men.
Men fear the thought of having erectile dysfunction at any point in their lives. This is because it literally makes them feel useless, even to themselves!
Experts say if a man has an occasional problem achieving an erection, it is really nothing to worry about. However, if he is having a problem more than half of the time when trying to have sexual intercourse, he should make an appointment with his doctor.
Many things can make a man experience erectile dysfunction, and they include lack of sleep, illness, diabetes, heart conditions or emotional stress.
Contrary to what many — including men — think, the penis doesn’t just rise up to the occasion immediately a man thinks of s*x or even when he sees a stimulating sight, such as a woman’s naked body.
