When it comes to sex, you definitely want to get as rock as you can in no time at all.
However, you just find your ability to rise up to the occasion rather weak these days. Besides not getting as hard as usual, it also takes longer for you to do the same.
Before you get your hands on medicines, creams and other artificial stuff that claim to supposedly bolster your erections almost immediately (but will have side effects sooner or later that will be bad for you), make sure you check out the following reasons first that may be causing the problem:
You are not taking good care of your teeth and gums.
Now while this may sound surprising, not keeping your oral health up to par can easily lead to problems when things are getting extra steamy between the sheets.
This is because oral health problems like plaque, tartar and cavities, including gum disease, result to the development of lesions inside the mouth that can easily allow bacteria to get inside the blood vessels.
When this happens, the flow of blood needed by the erectile tissues in the penis to get a stable erection going will be disrupted. And if not given the right attention, it will even become even more serious and can set off cardiovascular issues in the long run.
If you’re anything like most guys, you may sometimes think that brushing and flossing regularly can be a lot of work. However, if you’d like to get hard on demand when you and your partner get frisky in the bedroom, make it a daily habit.
You are not exercising regularly.
Keeping your circulatory system healthy is a must if you’d like to get strong erections every time you need to get in action in bed with your lover. And unlike what a lot of men mistakenly think, you don’t have to spend a lot of bucks to do the same.
You simply have to make exercise a regular in your schedule. I’m not suggesting you immediately take on extreme exercises. Simply kicking things off with brisk walking and slow jogging already gets you on the right track.
You are a habitual smoker.
Sure puffing on a cigarette supposedly gives a calming feeling especially when you’re feeling stressed, but nicotine and the other chemicals in it have a very horrible side effect: they set off a condition called vasoconstriction.
Vasoconstriction is when the blood vessels tighten and make it really tricky for blood to flow to where it is needed. And if the erectile tissues don’t get the right amount of blood they need to get an erection going…then you know what happens next.
