Sexual Weakness: Treatment, Procedure, Cost and Side Effects

What is the treatment?

Characterized by the inability to have or maintain an erection, sexual weakness or erectile dysfunction (ED) is fairly common in men. There are plenty of treatment options available that men can employ in order to cure themselves of this condition. Treatment options vary from simple methods such as oral medications and injections to more complex ones such as surgeries, implants and pumps. However, before a treatment option can be zeroed in on, a doctor will conduct diagnostic tests to find out exactly what's causing the problem. After an analysis of the cause, the most suitable treatment option will be chosen by the doctor with the consent of the patient. That said, the chosen treatment option wil not only vary on the basis of the cause but also the severity of the condition. Patients will be explained the risks and benefits of each of the treatment options so that they can make the best choice with the help of the doctor and know what they are getting into.

How is the treatment done?

A number of oral medications are prescribed for sexual weakness in men. These include sildenafil (viagra), vardenafil and more. They help in increase the blood flow to the penis so that an erection can be maintained in response to sexual stimulation. Some of the other medications prescribed though need to be injected instead of taking orally such as alprostadil, which is injected into the base of the penis with the help of a needle. Another treatment method, known as alprostadil urethral suppository, works by placing a suppository inside the man's penis in the penile urethra with the help of a special applicator. Apart from the above, penis pumps and surgeries are also an option. Penis pumps work by placing the tube of the pump on the penis and using the pump given to suck out air that is present in the tube. The vaccuum created increases blood flow to the penis, thereby helping in gettng an erection. Once the man gets the erection, he is supposed to slip a tension ring on the base of his penis and keep it there to maintain the erection. Lastly, penile implants involves the process of surgically attaching devices on either side of the man's penis. These implants are made up of malleable or inflatable rods. These rods help in controlling the length and duration of an erection. The operation is performed with the help of general or local anethesia.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

Men who suffer from sexual weakness and do not have heart diseases are eligible for medications used to treat sexual weakness. Potential candidates for surgery and penis pumps include those on whom medications did not prove to be effective.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

For example, side effects of oral medications include nasal congestion, blurry vision, flushing, stomach upset and backache. Side effects of injections urethral suppository include prolonged erection and mild bleeding as well as pain and formation of fibrous tissues in the penis. The side effects of penile implants include infection, formation of scar tissue, uncontrolled bleeding etc.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

Men who take oral medications or those in the form of injections or urethral suppositories need to follow any post treatment guidelines as such although they should consult with their doctors about that. Those who go through penile implants must rest for a couple of days after the operation and should not lift anything heavy either until their doctor allows them to.

How long does it take to recover?

Once a man gets an erection with the help of medications (oral or otherwise), they may last for about half an hour after which the penis will go back to its normal flaccid state. Recovery from a penile implant surgery takes about 6 weeks.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

Sexual Weakness & Night Fall - How Homeopathy Can Be Of Help?

Nightfall is a quite common issue among males especially those who are in adolescence or young adulthood. Nightfall seems a very embarrassing medical condition for adolescents as they are not aware of what is happening to them and they are not even comfortable for discussing this with their family members or friends. Nightfall is referred to as a condition where the male ejaculate unknowingly or without any desire during the sleeping or in the dreaming state. This condition can prevail for the whole life and may get resolved if one starts taking the medication.

It is considered a sexual problem only if it continues to exist even after young adulthood. Also, it is a reason for concern if the nightfall is occurring quite frequently. Also, the frequency of nightfall varies from individual to individual as one person may get it once in two-three weeks, or someone can experience this condition every week. Nightfall is also called wet dreams or nocturnal pollution. These can also be said as the spontaneous orgasmic state which occurs involuntarily.

Causes of Nightfall

There can be various causes of having a nightfall which are mentioned below:

  • When a person is engaged in watching excess porn videos, nude pictures, practicing masturbation, adult talks, there are higher chances to suffer from nightfall.
  • When the person is consuming medicines such as sleep controlling tranquillisers, blood pressure controlling medicines etc., then it may cause wet dreams. The nightfall can also occur as a result of sitting idle for long hours, obesity etc.
  • As soon as a male person reaches the age of puberty, then the testicles start producing sperms and if a person does not involve in any sexual activity, then the nightfall occurs so that the old sperms can get removed from the body.
  • When a person engages in the constant rubbing of their reproductive organs by the bed sheet or mattresses, then also chances of nightfall increases.
  • Nocturnal emissions can occur as a result of sexual weakness in the nerves of the male reproductive system.

During the nightfall, a person may experience symptoms such as weakness in memory, lethargy or tiredness in the body thereby decreasing the efficiency of the reproductive system, sad mood, lack of happiness, racing heartbeat, anemia, and so on.

Homeopathy does not only treat the physical symptoms of any disease or a disorder but also helps in gaining an insight about the person’s mental state and help him to cope with the circumstances. When the immune system of the individual is made strong, then the disease gets eliminated from the body.

Therefore, one can always rely upon the homeopathic treatment for problems such as nightfall and sexual illness. It is because the homeopathic medicine is made up of natural substances.

High Blood Pressure Treatment and Sexual Weakness


Most people who are suffering from high blood pressure have no signs while few of them experience headache, nosebleeds or shortness of breath. You can even have hypertension for years without any symptoms of it. It should be controlled as uncontrolled high blood pressure increases the risk of developing serious health problems such as heart attack and stroke, retinopathy, renal problem etc.

In Ayurveda, hypertension is known as "Raktvat'/ or 'Raktagat Vat' (means where 'vata dosh' has entered 'Rakta dhatu'). The vitiation of Vata and Pitta doshas are the main cause of this disease. Hypertension, according to Ayurveda, is an abnormality of Rakta dhatu (blood) which is popularly known as Shonita dushti (vitiated blood).

Herbal preparations (homemade remedies) which are highly effective in hypertension:

  • Arjuna Ksheerapaka – Milk processed with Arjuna (Terminalia arjuna).
  • Lashuna Ksheerapaka – Milk processed with garlic.

Herbs used solo or combo:

Ashwagandha, Sarpagandha
Amalki, Bala, Brahmi, Shankhpushpi, Ash gourd, Jatamansi, Giloy, Gotu kola

Other herbs which have been proved to have antihypertensive property by research works are:

Celery, Bishop’s weed, Ajawain, Carrot, Flaxseed / Linseed, Tomato – Drumstick – Moringa (Shigru),
Tulsi – Bhumi Amla – Pome granate –
Seasame, Wheat bran, – Black plum,
Ginger etc.

READYMADE AYURVEDIC MED made of above and others are commonly Sarpagandha Ghan vati, Giloy satv, Arjunarishta, Ashwagandharisht , Brahmi vati, Hridyarnav Ras etc (Pl do not take yourself but discuss with ayurvedic doctor first)

Many of above medicines may be taken concurrently with your allopathic medicine. People who are hypertensive for long and on modern anti hypertensive, usually lose sexual power sooner (Both male n female). On the contrary many of the above herbs are Rejuvenating in nature and if u start using ayurvedic antihypertensives either parallel to your current modern regime or switch to pure ayurveda in phased manner, you will notice how Rejuvenation of sex comes back. However it's not overnight action but is conquered gradually - but definately. 

Anybody can do away dependency on modern antihypertensives and switch easily to safe herbals.
