Are Problems with Sexual Performance as You Age Inevitable?
Age is not necessarily a determining factor for having some “trouble in the bedroom.”
You can experience a problem with sexual performance at almost any age. So called “performance anxiety,” or stress, can find even the most young and virile of men in need of a bedroom boost when it comes time to get intimate.
However, it is true that as you get older, your ability to obtain and maintain an erection is affected. But when do you know if your little problem, is a big problem? Just what is normal erectile function for a given age?
If you are a man over 35 and you have noticed a change in your erections, that does not mean there is immediate cause for concern. In fact, more than 50% of men in their 30s and 40s report some issues with sexual wellness or erectile dysfunction (ED).
ED can be a bit of a misunderstood term. Many believe that if you “have ED,” that means you have lost your ability to get an erection entirely. That is not true. Total inability to obtain an erection is the most severe form of ED, and likely has a serious medical cause. But there are “degrees” of ED that occur as you get older, that could be considered “normal” for your age. These include:
- It takes a little longer to get rigid than it used to
- You may climax, or lose your erection sooner than you used to
- You might lose your erection before you climax
- Your climaxes are not as strong, or contain less fluid
- It could take longer than it used to for a second erection
Any of these conditions can be considered a “type of ED,” and are all related to the fact that testosterone production and blood flow to your penis both decrease as you age.
But just because these problems are a “normal” part of getting older, does not mean you have to accept them!
If you are satisfied with your level of performance, even if that includes some occasional bouts of erectile dysfunction, so be it. However, if you are not satisfied, and want to perform better, or more like you could when you were younger, there are new and exciting drug-free treatments available. That is good news, because current research suggests that maintaining an active and healthy sex life as you get older, can actually help you live longer!

Improve Your Sex Life at Any Age – Pulsed Wave Therapy
If we know that sex can help you live longer, is there a “minimum” amount you should have to get all of the health benefits? There is! Studies have shown that sex at least once a week can provide most if not all of the above benefits.
As you get older, the blood vessels that supply blood to your penis begin to collapse or break down. HealthGAINS has recently introduced a remarkable new erectile dysfunction treatment called the GAINSWave™. The GAINSWave is so new, you will not find any male sexual wellness treatment center other than HealthGAINS providing anything similar in your area.
Basically, the pulsating waves of the GAINSWave improve blood flow to the penis by opening existing blood vessels and stimulating the growth of new blood vessels. Increased blood flow results in stronger, harder, and more sustainable erections.
The pulsating waves trigger a healing response that “wakes-up” dormant stem cells and growth factors in the penis. Along with repairing age-worn blood vessels, these growth factors stimulate the creation of new blood vessels and the rejuvenation of erectile tissue.
