Lymphedema - Vascularized Lymph Node Transfer Surgery!

Lymphedema - Vascularized Lymph Node Transfer Surgery!

Lymphedema is a condition that typically affects the arms and legs. The most common cause of this condition is damage to the lymph nodes or their removal as part of a cancer treatment program. There is no known cure for this condition. However, surgeries such as Vascularized lymph node transfer surgery may help deal with it better.

Vascularized lymph node transfer surgery involves replacing the affected lymph nodes with healthy lymph nodes from other parts of the body. This allows blood to flow more easily and restores or augments the lymphatic drainage system. In most cases, the healthy lymph nodes are harvested from the patient’s groin. This procedure is relatively new, and its limits are still being explored by doctors. In cases of breast cancer that causes lymphedema in the upper limbs, this procedure may be performed along with breast reconstruction.

To be a viable candidate for this procedure the patient must have maximized control over lymphedema through other forms of lymphedema therapy. This therapy will need to be restarted after the surgery to ensure good results. The lymphedema diagnosis should also be less than 5 years old such that the patient’s lymphedema is in its early stages.

As with any other surgical procedure, there are certain risks associated with this procedure. These can include

  1. Reaction to anesthesia
  2. Bleeding
  3. Infection
  4. Scarring at the site and poor healing
  5. Damage to adjacent blood vessels
  6. Nerve damage that can cause a temporary loss of sensation
  7. Muscle weakness
  8. Numbness ta the sites from where healthy lymph nodes were harvested
  9. Risk of Lymphedema in the area where the lymph nodes were harvested from

After the surgery, the patient will need to keep pressure off the site where the lymph nodes have been transferred. The surgery site may be bandaged but compression garments will not need to be worn. On being discharged the patient may resume normal activities such as driving and work. High-intensity exercises that involve the use of the operated limb should be avoided for at least a month after the surgery. Compression garments should not be used until recommended by the doctor or a minimum of 2 weeks post-surgery. They will also need to schedule review consultations with the doctor. The schedule followed usually involves check-ups after 2 weeks, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 1 year. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Addiction - How Homeopathy Is Beneficial In Treating It?

Addiction - How Homeopathy Is Beneficial In Treating It?

Addiction not only includes physical things we consume, such as drugs or alcohol, but also includes virtually anything, such abstract things as gambling to seemingly harmless products, such as chocolate, etc. In other words, addiction may refer to a substance dependence (e.g. drug addiction) or behavioral addiction (e.g. gambling addiction).

Causes: There is a link between the repeated uses of an addictive substance and how the human brain experience pleasure, its use has a nice reward, leading to further and more frequent use. The addictive substance, be it nicotine, alcohol or some drug actually causes physical changes in some nerve cells in the brain. After a while, the user of the potentially addictive substance does not get the same pleasure and has to increase the dose, as his/her body's tolerance to it increases. Eventually, the user no longer experiences pleasure from the substance and takes it simply to prevent withdrawal symptoms taking the substance just makes them feel normal. When tolerance increases, the risk of addiction is much greater.

Signs and Symptoms: A person starts to show symptoms when a person takes the substance, such as nicotine , alcohol etc. and has given a serious attempt to stop, but is unable to do so because of the withdrawal symptoms. The body of an addict will go in withdrawal state when once the level of the substance abused is below a certain level. When a person goes in withdrawal state it will show signs, such as craving, bouts of moodiness, bad temper, poor focus, extreme temperament, poor focus, continuous feeling of depression, emptiness, frustration, anger, bitterness and resentment. Apart from these the addict will also display symptoms such as increased appetite, insomnia, constipation,and diarrhea. Withdrawal caused by some substances can also trigger signs like violence, seizures, hallucination, sweating and trembling, etc. However, the addiction continues despite health problem awareness. An addicted person commonly feels they need their drug in order to deal with their problems.

Investigation of Addiction: Blood test is advised to determine whether the substance is still in the blood (whether the substance has been taken recently). DSM criteria for substance dependence that is a patient diagnosed with substance dependence (an addiction) must meet criteria laid out in the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), a manual published by the American Psychiatric Association.

What you can do?: Acknowledge the problem and consult for help from an expert. Family members must be supportive in creating a congenial environment for the addicted person.

Role of Homeopathy in Management of Addiction: The first step for the addicted person is to acknowledge that there is a substance dependency problem (addiction problem). The next step is to get help. In most of the world there are several support groups and professional services available. Treatment options for addiction depend on several factors, including what type of substance it is and how it affects the patients. Typically, treatment includes a combination of inpatient and outpatient programs, counselling (psychotherapy), self-help groups, pairing with individual sponsors, and medication.

Talking of medication, Homoeopathy definitely has a major role to play in the de-addiction journey of a 'patient'. Over the years it has been seen that homeopathy has produced tremendous results in such cases. People have approached for quitting alcohol, smoking, drugs, etc. and majority of them have been wonderfully helped by Homoeopathy. Those who haven't achieved desirable results have either lacked willingness or conviction on their own part, or have had a non-congenial and non-co-operative environment at home and work place. For any de-addiction plan to be successful for a patient these 2 factors are the most important. A willing person with a co-operative and supportive environment is much more receptive and responsive to the medical treatment.

The commonest attacking area for any addictive substance is the Central Nervous System (CNS). The substance inhibits the release of neurotransmitters, which are responsible for carrying nerve impulses. Once these neurotransmitters are inhibited in their normal functioning, a person develops delayed nervous responses and irregular nerve impulses leading to addiction. It is a vicious circle. So, as the centre of attack is the CNS, a medical system that boosts and strengthens the CNS would automatically prove beneficial in such dreadful cases. Homoeopathy is that very medical science! The homoeopathic medicines are absorbed through the nerve root endings of the tongue and directly hit the CNS. There are some very powerful Homoeopathic medicines, which have the ability to shake up the CNS and work in a normal manner as it is used to be. These Homoeopathic medicines, thus have the ability to develop control and also the power to abstain from the substance in later stages of the treatment.

But the first and foremost attempt is made to manage the withdrawal symptoms. It is the fear of the withdrawal symptoms only that a patient may lose conviction and confidence in him and give in to the indulgence once again. This is where the role of family and friends also comes in. when the struggle of 1 man becomes fight for the whole team; chances are very high of coming out victorious. There are brilliant medicines in Homoeopathic science, which can help the person in managing and fighting with the withdrawal symptoms with ease. Medicines like Nux vomica, Kali phos., Arsenic Album, Coffea cruda, Aconite, Gelsemium, Argentum nitricum, Ipecac, Acid sulphurosum, Caladium, Daphna indica, Quercus, etc. have proved to be extremely effective in helping a person wean off completely of the addictive substances.

Mind the Mind: Over the past two issues, we took up the burning problem of addiction as a mental illness, explored its, nature and probable causes that go into the making of an addict. The current issue is aimed at spreading awareness about the available evidence based psychological treatments for de-addiction.

  1. Psychotherapy: Also called as 'talk therapy', is aimed at helping the patient to understand the link between their thoughts, feelings and behaviour so that the maladaptive ones can be replaced with more adaptive and productive processes. Interventions in terms of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Motivation Enhancement Therapy (MET) and Behaviour Therapy are efficient in the treatment of addiction behaviour.
  2. Craving control: Use of certain medicines and behavioural techniques can help a person deal with the intense feelings of craving when it seems too much to bear. It gives a sense of greater control to the person over the substance, which in turn motivates him/her to stay away from using the substance. Many people report that they tend to continue the abuse the substance since they are unable to handle the period of intense craving, which can come all of a sudden.
  3. Relapse prevention: Arguably it is the most important component of de-addiction program. Leaving the substance is not that hard, but staying away from it is the most difficult part as reported by many patients with addiction. To ensure that the person stays clean and healthy without the substance, they are taught some techniques like asking for help whenever they feel the need to do the substance or staying away from potentially, dangerous situations, like going to party where alcohol is available. With therapy, the individual gains more confidence in his/her own abilities rather than depending on the substance for facing life situations. In addition to this, they also start enjoying their life without the substance. Both the patient and his/her family play an important part in this process hence they are educated about it and are advised regarding appropriate ways of ensuring sobriety for the patient.
  4. Alcoholics Anonymous (AA): It is a self-hellp group in which ex-alcoholics come together and share their experiences, for instance how they got into drinking, how it affected their life and now how they are maintaining their sobriety. These are mostly weekly sessions and have been found to be very effective in supporting the recovery of alcoholics to stay motivated and be clean without the use of alcohol. Similar to AA, there is NA (Narcotics Anonymous for drug addicts) and Al-Anon (for the family members and friends of problem drinkers).
  5. Yoga and exercise: A healthy daily routine with yoga or regular exercise promotes feelings of general well-being and ensures healthy mind and body. It detoxifies the body faster and even helps in recovering from the damage caused due to excessive substance use.
  6. Social skill training: An important aspect for being away from drugs/alcohol is the ability to say NO to such offers from others. Assertive behaviour, healthy communication pattern and good problem solving ability are skills that are taught to assist the person to stay healthy without feeling the need to take the substance.

One of the simplest, yet very powerful principles of staying healthy is 'ONE DAY AT A TIME'! Instead of making any long-term plans for staying sober, which might seem over-whelming and extremely difficult, just plan for that very day and DECIDE to be clean without the substance. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

7 Tips To Help You Recover from Hemorrhoids Surgery!

7 Tips To Help You Recover from Hemorrhoids Surgery!

Hemmorroids can be really uncomfortable and keep you in pain all through the day. One of the best and fastest way to get relief from this condition is to get them removed for good which can be easily done with the help of the surgery. The recovery period after a hemorrhoid surgery typically varies from one to two weeks depending on a host of aspects such as severity of hemorrhoids, the number of hemorrhoids as well as the type of treatment. During this span, a certain level of pain and discomfort is expected, but with some useful care tips, you can get some relief within a few days after the surgery.

  1. Making lifestyle changes: After the surgical intervention, the patient must be on bed rest for a week or so. This is because, during this time, the surgical wounds can reopen at any time if caution is not exercised. If you have excessive body weight, it is recommended that you should lose weight after this surgery. This must be done healthily so that the stress is reduced in the rectum area while an individual squat or sits down. This could lead to the recurrence of hemorrhoids in the long run. After the first few weeks, the patient must take a 10-minute brisk walk regularly.
  2. Take painkillers: In case the pain from hemorrhoids worsens after the surgery, you may consider taking painkillers. Many patients tend to use these medications to recover from hemorrhoids surgery, and you should take only prescription drugs only.
  3. Keep up with a healthy diet: You should make it a habit of eating a high-fiber diet and taking adequate amounts of fluid every day. This will not just accelerate the recovery process but prevent the recurrence of hemorrhoids. For best results, this should be practiced a few weeks before and after the surgery.
  4. Try different home remedies: In addition to the common methods of easing pain and discomfort after hemorrhoids surgery, you may also try different types of home remedies. Make sure that the wound is always clean and you can also use gels and creams for minimizing irritation.
  5. Alleviate itchiness: During the hemorrhoid surgery recovery, you are likely to experience itchiness which is a characteristic of a recovery period. This is a common symptom of external hemorrhoids, and to reduce it, you can take a sitz bath. Your doctor may also prescribe a topical medication depending on the location and severity of the problem.
  6. Educate yourself about the surgery and post-operative care: This is presumably the most important aspect of caring for hemorrhoids surgery. You should learn about the common complications of this surgery and how you can overcome them.
  7. Know when you can call a doctor: During the recovery process, it is critical to follow the instructions as given by the doctor. You should maintain the follow-up treatment with your doctor so that you can report him of any health problems and discomfort to take required steps.

With care and caution, you may recover easily from hemorrhoid surgery and return to normal life soon. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Common Cold & Cough - Ayurvedic Remedies For It!

Common Cold & Cough - Ayurvedic Remedies For It!

No matter how well you take care of yourself, everyone catches a cold and flu at some time or the other. That’s probably the reason why it is popularly known as a ‘common’ cold. A cold on its own does not harm the body much but it leaves you feeling weakened and suppresses the immune system. Cold is a viral infection and hence is usually unresponsive to antibiotics and other medication. However, Ayurveda can help manage a cold better and speed up the recovery process.

Cough and cold can be triggered by a number of factors including a sudden drop in temperature, exposure to dust or pollen or staying in rooms with poor ventilation. Additionally, aggravating the Kapha dosha can also cause a cold or cough. When the food we eat is not digested properly, its turns into ‘ama’ that triggers cold or cough when it reaches the respiratory system. Some common ayurvedic remedies for coughs and colds are:

  1. Enhance your body heat: Keeping the body warm, especially the head, throat, chest and feet, is the first step to recovering from a cold. Drinking a cup of hot spiced tea or a glass of warm water mixed with 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, a few times a day, can also help. Spices like cumin, coriander and black pepper are considered heat generating spices and hence should be used liberally when preparing food.
  2. Vapour therapy: To recover from a cough that is accompanied by congestion, try inhaling the hot vapours of water mixed with a little eucalyptus oil. This helps dilate the bronchial tubes and unblocks the nostrils. Inhaling the vapours of water mixed with rock salt can help relieve heaviness in the head and a mild cold. Simple hot water vapours itself can even be inhaled to relieve sinusitis pain. To benefit from vapour therapy, it is essential to sit in a room without the fan on and to cover your head and the vapour source while inhaling the steam.
  3. Dhooma Paan: Inhaling turmeric smoke is said to have an antiseptic effect on the lungs and respiratory tract. To benefit from this therapy burn a dried root of turmeric and inhale the smoke a few times. If you do not have access to the dried root of turmeric, place a red hot piece of charcoal with a few dried leaves in a clay pot, add a heaped spoon of turmeric powder to this and blow gently till it catches fire before inhaling the smoke.

Tulsi, Vasaka, Guduchi etc. are some Ayurvedic herbs which work as wonders in building immunity of the body.  In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Things You Should Know About Sexually Transmitted Diseases!

It is always better to ensure caution and stay protected against possible infections, which are caused by intimate contact amongst partners. Sexually Transmitted Diseases or STDs are common occurrences for many people all over the world. These many range in intensity and type, and may also happen due to various causes. These are also known as venereal diseases. The most common way for this kind of infection or disease to spread, is through unprotected sex with an infected partner. The problem is that many of these diseases do not cause any obvious symptoms which make them even more difficult to detect and spot. So some of the prevailing STD's:

  • Bacterial Infections: These are by far the most common type of STDs which can spread quickly and easily when the bacteria are passed on through sexual activity. The symptoms may include pain and even bleeding in the vaginal area. The different types of bacterial infections include Chancroid, Chlamydia, Syphilis, Gonorrhoea, Granuloma Inguinale and others. This bacteria usually manifests due to poor hygiene of the genitals. In case of many of these conditions, if proper diagnosis and treatment does not take place on time, the result may be infertility too.
  • Fungal InfectionsFungal infections like Candidiasis usually occur due to the production of excess yeast. This yeast infection can spread and become painful and is usually characterised by a thick white discharge.
  • Viral Infections: There are a number of viral infections like Viral Hepatitis, HIV, Herpes Simplex and many more, that can transmitted through a virus which can also be found in food, blood, yeast and in rare cases, breast milk. Pain and sores in the genital area can be some of the most common symptoms of these kinds of infections, which can prove to be fatal if not treated on time.
  • Parasites: Crab Louse and Scabies are some common parasites that can also thrive on sexual contact with an infected partner, which leads to transmission and spread of the infection. The instant symptoms include skin problems and other changes that may be painful.
  • Anal Conditions: Sometimes, many STDs can be caused due to anal sex which may be in insertive or receptive mode. These include HIV, Hepatitis, Gonorrhoea, Herpes and more. The initial symptoms may include pain and sores.

There are a number of unscreened bacteria and viruses that may cause such conditions and one must be careful to practice only protected sex with a known partner. Also, care must be taken to indulge in sexual intercourse with only partner at a time so as to prevent the spread of any infection or STD. 

The treatment of any kinds of these STD infections should be treated at the right time before it makes condition worse and the proper medication can be prescribed by the sexologist or even surgery and other such procedures for particularly serious cases. so any case of unprotected sex should be monitored for any STD symptoms and get treated by a sexologist. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

3 Clever Tricks to Avoid Premature Ejaculation and Last Long in Bed

3 Clever Tricks to Avoid Premature Ejaculation and Last Long in Bed

Here are 3 clever tricks to avoid premature ejaculation so you can last long in bed. They do not require any pills, lotions or exercises.

3 tricks to avoid premature ejaculation:

1. Extend Foreplay. This works great and it is very easy to implement. If you stimulate your partner enough during foreplay then they will be very close to ejaculation. This means that when actual sex is to occur they will likely ejaculate even before you. In other words you can actually get away with premature ejaculating, and it will appear as if you have lasted long enough in bed. One of the best foreplay techniques is finger play. If you stimulate her g-spot with your finger (by curling your finger forward and finding the semi-rough patch) this will bring on excitement very quickly, and allow you to follow up with insertion without having to worry about quick ejaculation since she will be very close to orgasm.

2. Teasing Technique. The teasing technique works great. Here's how you do it. While you are about to have sex, rather than fully inserting your penis (where you then run the risk of ejaculating too quickly) instead just insert the head, or do rubbing motions around the outside and then gently insert the head. Then you pull out and repeat. What this does is build up major sexual excitement, to the point where when you do insert fully, she is very much ready to orgasm!

3. Masturbate First. The masturbate first method is probably the best, and the one that is closest to having actual sex without having to tease or extend foreplay. What you do is essentially masturbate an hour or so before actual sex. You may want to experiment with the timing, but the key is finding that window where you are able to become sexually excited after masturbation. What you will find is that after you masturbate and then have actual sex, you will be able to last much longer than ever before. It's as if you are getting rid of premature ejaculating by getting it over with from the start. Your second time around (which will be actual sex) will naturally last much longer. Every guy knows the second time around for having sex is an extremely longer session than the first time. So this way, you are essentially getting rid of that first time by masturbating, and going straight into second time around sex which is the naturally occurring longer session.

Penis Enlargement Exercises - 3 Easy Ways to Get a Bigger Penis

Penis Enlargement Exercises - 3 Easy Ways to Get a Bigger Penis

Men who want a bigger penis usually worry about the safety and ease of the penis enlargement exercises available in today's day and age. Well, truth be told, each different methods has its own set of pros and cons. The easiest and safest penis enlargement exercises to do are listed in this article.

  • The two main penis enlargement exercises that you should focus on include stretching and flexing. Stretching basically involves stretching the shaft of your manhood to let more blood flow into its tissue and promote cell multiplication. This is what will make your penis thicker and longer in the long run. One basic stretch technique that you can turn to is the jelq. As basic as it is, though, it is known to be a highly effective exercise that can truly get the job done on all counts.
  • To do the jelq, simply massage your penis until you get a semi-erection. It is important not to get a full erection here because a full erection is generally hard to work what with the muscles being so hard in it. A semi-erection, on the other hand, will make your penis easier to bend.
  • Once you have a semi-erection, place some lubrication in your hands and on your penis. It doesn't really matter what kind of lubrication you use as long as you don't use soap. Then, firmly hold the base of your penis with your forefinger and thumb. You shouldn't feel any pain whatsoever at this point - remember that.
  • After that, run your fingers along your penile shaft up towards the tip while making sure that you are pushing blood into the tip by doing so. To know if you are doing this right, pay attention to the tip of your penis. If it swells, then you are on the right track. After that, do the exact same thing with your other hand and then do around 30 repetitions of this to complete the set. After about a week, feel free to do more jelqs.
  • When it comes to penis enlargement exercises, flexing basically involves strengthening the PC muscles to get a bigger erection and improved ejaculation control at the same time. One basic flex technique that you can turn to is the kegel.
  • To do the kegel, simply tense your PC muscles, which are the muscles located between your anus and scrotum. Just tense them for about a second and then release them. Do around 30 repetitions of this before resting.
  • What is great about the kegel is that it is one of the easiest penis enlargement exercises you could possibly do. In fact, once you master it, it won't feel like work at all. Plus, you can do this exercise anytime that you want, whether you are in the bathroom or are in bed getting ready to go to sleep.
  • While all of the penis enlargement exercises mentioned above may seem simple, they truly are some of the most powerful ways to increase the girth and length of your manhood. How long it will take before you see any positive results, though, will depend on different factors, like your diet and how much rest your penis gets after each exercise.
  • In some cases, it could take weeks or even months before positive results start to show up in a significant manner. However, at the end of the day, all of the gains that you get from following these exercises will be permanent and will stay with you for life. Therefore, they are definitely well worth your time and effort if you have been dreaming of getting a bigger penis for a while now.

Penis Health Awareness - Essential Men's Checkups According to Age

Penis Health Awareness - Essential Men's Checkups According to Age

Unfortunately, most men take better care of their cars than they do of their own bodies. Just as no man would skip an oil change or 50,000-mile tune-up, he shouldn't skip out on important annual physical exams and health screenings. Physical health is very closely tied to penis health, making these check-ups vital to a healthy sex life, as well. Learn what health screenings every man needs throughout each decade of his life in order to keep everything under the hood running smoothly.

In the 20s

Though men are hopefully at the pinnacle of health at this age, it's still important to make time for an annual visit with the doctor. Here's a list of everything the doc should check regularly during this decade:

  • Annual physical with blood pressure check
  • In-office screening for testicular cancer
  • Cholesterol testing every 5 years
  • Yearly skin cancer screening
  • Depending on family history, screening for other conditions such as thyroid, diabetes, heart conditions, liver conditions, or anemia
  • Screening for sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, every 3-6 months for men who are not in monogamous relationships

At home:

Monthly testicular self-exams to monitor for changes
Monthly skin cancer self-exam to check for changes

In the 30s

Not much changes between these two decades; all of same in-office and at-home screenings from the 20s would be carried on in the 30s, with these add-ons:

More intensive visual health screenings
Screenings for coronary heart disease - particularly in men with a strong family history of heart problems

In the 40s

  • While the 40s used to be considered "over the hill," it is far from it these days. Still, make sure the doc is continuing all of the above health screenings as well as adding on a few more. Keep up on those monthly self-exams, too:
  • Screenings for prostate cancer
  • Possible screenings for colon cancer, depending on risk factors and family history
  • Diabetes screening every 3 years once a man has reached age 45

In the 50s

Whether a man is considering early retirement or still going strong in his career, his health is as important as ever. A doc will keep all the previous health screenings going, as well as the following:

  • Yearly blood draw screening for Type II diabetes
  • Yearly electrocardiogram
  • Vision and hearing screenings
  • Screening for lipid disorders
  • Colon cancer screening, including blood testing and colonoscopy starting at age 50
  • Evaluation for depression

In the 60s

  • Reaching the 60s is reason to celebrate, not to slow down; so maintain an active lifestyle and make sure the doc continues all the essential exams while adding the following. If those monthly self-exams are getting more difficult, feel free to enlist a partner for help:
  • Screenings for coronary heart disease, as well as preventative screenings or ultrasounds for carotid artery and abdominal aortic aneurysm, especially for men with other existing cardiovascular conditions
  • Osteoporosis screening
  • Lung cancer screening - depending on risk factors and family history
  • Screening for dementia and Alzheimer's disease in addition to depression or anxiety issues

In the 70s and beyond

By this time the doc has probably run about every preventative screening there is. Depending on previous results and personal health history, the doc may increase or decrease the frequency of certain studies and screenings. A thorough discussion with a doctor who is familiar with one's entire history is important to determine what health exams should be conducted both in-office and at home.

Maintaining Sexual Health

In order to stay sexually active - and healthy - into the 70's and beyond, men need to be taking care of their bodies their entire life. In addition to getting plenty of exercise, maintaining regular physicals and other health screenings, men should always use a condom to reduce their chance of transmitting sexual infections. Regular screenings of one's sexual health is imperative to keep the penis healthy.

Weak or soft erections are a result of poor blood flow to the penis. A lot of factors can reduce blood flow to the penis. Excess body fat and clogging of arteries is one of the most basic factors affecting blood circulation to the penis.

Here are some proven ways to ensure rock solid erections:

1. Exercise

Exercise is the best way to reduce your body fat and increase rigidity of your erections. Exercise not only helps increase blood circulation in your body but also helps burn excess fat. This can help clear your arteries so that more blood can flow into your penis when you get sexually excited.

Just 20-25 minutes of exercise 3-4 days a week can be a big help in improving your erection hardness.

2. Stop Smoking

Smoking can just destroy your sex life. Here are three reasons for which you must stop smoking:

First of all, smoking can destroy penile tissue and can shrink your penis size
Secondly, it can impair valve mechanism that stores blood inside penis when you get an erection. What is worse is that this damage is permanent and cannot be repaired.
Finally, smoking can lower your testosterone levels. This can lead to poor libido, erectile dysfunction, reduced semen production and sperm count.
Thus, it is a great idea to quit smoking.

3. Consider Vasectomy

If you are done with producing offsprings, then you must consider vasectomy. Risk of contraceptive failure can be a big source of anxiety for some men. This is specially true in case of men who have experienced a birth control disaster.

Anxiety is one of the major reasons of erectile dysfunction in men. If your are worried about contraceptive failure, then its time to opt for vasectomy. This can help reduce stress and anxiety and eliminate cause of weak erections.

4. Stop Having Extra Marital Affairs

Cheating your partner can make you feel guilty and stressed. This can hamper your ability to have harder and stiffer erections. Doctors often ask men with erectile dysfunction if they are cheating on their partners.

You need a proper brain and body connect to get a solid erection. Guilt is one of the emotional factors that can take a toll on your libido. Thus, staying faithful to your partner can help a great deal in improving your penis health.

5. Yawn More

You might find this a bit amusing but yawing can help improve strength of your erections. This is because yawning is caused by the same chemical in your body that causes erections. Nitric oxide is released by your brain and it can travel either to the neurons that control mouth opening or breathing or it can travel down your spine to the blood vessels that supply blood to the penis.

In case of a big yawn, nitric oxide can travel to both the places and can cause a solid erection too.

6. Try a Natural Erection Gel

Last, but not the least, you can also try an erection gel that can ensure quick and hard erections. Such a gel releases ingredients directly into the bloodstream through skin pores in your penis.
