Further information on Erectile Dysfunction

The post I wrote a week or so ago has had a lot of comments from our group and I wanted to follow up with some more information on this topic as there have been a lot of private conversations with ladies who’s partners or husbands have been suffering, but who never talk about this.

When I decided to do some research I was surprised at the number of treatments available globally. The most helpful article came from the WebMD website.

The thing that impressed me about this article or collection of pages on this website WebMD was that it covered what ED is, what the symptoms are and so on which is all great information and it seems like it is all collated by medical people (I assume because of the name of the website and all).

But the thing I liked most was the information on caring for your partner and talking about this issue which as I said is one of the hardest things for many of the ladies in our group.

The top treatments were:

  1. Lifestyle Change
  2. Erectile Dysfunction Vacuums
  3. Penile prostheses
  4. Surgery
  5. Natural Remedies
  6. Yohimbe Bark Supplements
  7. Alprostadil
  8. Drugs
  9. Hormonal Therapy for Erection Problems
  10. Testosterone Replacement Therapy

This was a long list of treatments and coincidentally I got an email because I was registered with the clinic I am having my fat treatments with. They have just come out with a new Consumer Guide to ED which I thought was very interesting. The thing I like about this is that it is not a sales brochure for themselves. It covers many of the other available treatments on the market in Australia and not just in the US. They also seem to downplay a lot of the side benefits of this treatment.

So I downloaded this free piece of information, I hope that they don’t mind I printed it off and gave it to about 30 of the ladies who had talked about this. They were ever so grateful and it will give them a very good piece of information that they can either leave for their partner/ husband or they can sit down and talk about it which is again one of the best pieces of advice the first article on web md said.

Hope this helps

This is something I thought I would never do

Sooo I had my consultation this week for my fat freezing and booked in the treatment for next week. They said I was a very good candidate for the cool tech treatment. They gave me all the information I need on that which was fine.

But I also talked to the doctor when I was in Sydney on anti wrinkle injections which I said to my self I would never ever get… but I did. I am feeling a bit like a kid in a candy shop at the moment.

I had looked into these injections but was put off from what I now know to be miss information. What I was told was that it would only last for 1 month but if I am not a super active person, that is I am not young and I am not a personal trainer or athlete or professional sports person then the toxin will not be removed from my body so quickly. So 3-4 months is what I was told.

I looked up the Botox website and here is a screenshot

The other thing I had while I was at the clinic was some skin needling, they had a great skin needling picture up for their christmas promotion that I took a picture of looked great.

Ha isn’t it a great image, love her eyes and Christmas feel. Can’t believe that Christmas is only 7 more weeks away!!

So now that I have my wrinkle injections I actually can’t frown. It is the weirdest feeling I have probably ever had. I can’t stop saying to my friends “look this is me frowning, I am trying to frown as much as I can”. Driving my friends up the wall. haha

I have always had a big problem with the the frown line that down the middle of my foreward and I have always looked in the mirror every day and said that is something that I want to get fixed.

So I wanted to have this done forever but have not got the courage up to actually get into a clinic and do it. I am that scared of needles that I could not bring myself to even give a clinic a call.

So when I was in the consultation with the doctor (who was a lovely man), he was talking about the needles and that I would not really even feel it, I had to stop him and tell him to just do it as I didn’t want to talk about it and I didn’t want to look at the needle. At the end I did appologise to the lovely young man and explained to him that I was very scared of needles.

But, I got through it and am very proud of myself to have had this done, another thing to strike off my bucket list!

Have a great day ladies!
