My name is Mark and I am a 53-year-old male that suffered from erectile dysfunction (ED) for over 15 years, a problem that started in my late 30s.
My first introduction to treating ED was penile injections, which proved to not work in the doctor's office. However, I was told by the doctor to go home and keep trying for the next couple of months. Not only did the injections continue to not to work for me but they were also painful and the least spontaneous of any type of treatment.
When Viagra came to the market it was phenomenal. It worked quite well in the beginning until I developed a tolerance to the medication as a majority of men do. Under medical advice I increased the Viagra dosages, which resulted in better reliability, but also worsening headaches and other complications due to its side effects. I tried other prescribed ED medications - some worked occasionally and others with no results at all. Eventually Viagra simply became ineffective and if anything the side effects became more reliable than the intended "cure".
I tried every herbal medication that even remotely might help male libido and erections. These included things like Ginkgo, L-Arginine, Tribulus Terrestris, Zinc, Maca, Yohimbe and Horny Goat Weed (probably only works if you're a goat). Most of these did absolutely nothing. Yohimbe was even extremely dangerous and caused sudden blood pressure changes - almost made me stiff in the wrong way! Unfortunately I found out that some of the big-name, nonprescription medicines contain a combination of these herbal ingredients and ultimately they were all a huge waste of money with disappointing results!
Despite the ineffectiveness of the pills and herbs I had no intention of giving up my sexual activity with my wife. I felt it was paramount to my health and well being to find a solution that was based on science and technology rather than Internet hype and unreliable voodoo medicine.
My research led me to a penile implant as being the correct solution to my problems. I wanted to have spontaneous intercourse without the side effects associated with commercially available medications and herbal remedies. This led me to Dr. Eid and his surgical expertise with penile implants. In particular I was impressed with his “No-Touch Surgical Technique,” which vastly reduces the chances of post-operative infections along with the high quality penile implant devices that he uses.
While my wife was skeptical at first she now loves the implant! I feel that it has not only restored my ability to have an erection whenever I want, but also my overall confidence and closeness with my wife that had dissipated over the years. Now I'm no longer hearing from my wife "maybe next time it will be better..." She now says, “Our sexual intimacy feels natural, along with being pleasurable.”
