Do you know what’s going on below your belt? Do you REALLY know?

There’s a lot of information out there about erectile dysfunction (ED), the problem is, good information has become mixed up with junk information, and many men think they have the answers they need, when instead they have nothing more than a handful of myths.

We’d like to put some of the most common of these myths to bed, if you’ll excuse the pun.

ED Myth #1: If You Can Get an Erection – You Don’t Have ED

The actual definition of erectile dysfunction is: “The inability to achieve penile erection or to maintain an erection until ejaculation.” So, in other words, the real question to ask is, “Can you get and keep an erection that’s satisfying enough for sex?”

So, some men may have an inability to get an erection, and others may be able to get one, but have difficulty maintaining it for any length of time. And still other men may get an erection and keep it, but it won’t be hard enough to allow penetration.

ED Myth #2: ED Only Affects Older Men

This is probably the biggest ED myth out there. While it’s true that your risk for developing ED increases with age, younger men are by no means immune to it.

In fact, according to a study in the American Journal of Medicine, 85% of men ages 20 to 39 say they “always” or “almost always” can get and maintain an erection good enough for sex. This translates to roughly 15% of young men having some difficulty with erections always or at least sometimes.

ED Myth #3: If You Have Performance Issues Once, You Have ED

While most men may boast about being an animal in the bedroom, the reality is, most also don’t bat a thousand. And that’s to be expected. There are many things that can throw a man’s performance off:

  • Lack of sleep
  • Stress
  • Medications
  • Too much drinking
  • Fighting with your partner

If once in a while you have trouble, that is not ED. But if you find you are having a hard time achieving or maintaining an erection for three or more months, that does suggest a chronic issue is at play and you will want to make an appointment with your doctor.

ED Myth #4: ED Means You Have Something Wrong with Just Your Penis

The truth is, ED can be a symptom that indicates an underlying medical problem. For instance, ED can suggest type 2 diabetes or even a heart condition. ED can also indicate low testosterone or depression.

If you are experiencing ED, it’s important that you see your doctor to get checked out.

ED Myth #5: You’ll Need the Help of a Specialist to Fix Your Problem

Not necessarily. If you’ve gotten a clean bill of health from your doctor, as in you don’t have diabetes or a heart condition, then there are things you can do for yourself that may get your erections up and working again.

For instance, it may be that you need to lose weight and drink less. You may need to find healthy ways to destress and deal with any depression.

In many instances, there are natural supplements that can help. Our Golden Royal Honey is packed with all-natural ingredients that have been scientifically proven to help men achieve and maintain erections. This could be just what you’ve been looking for.
