Pelvic area muscles are the ones that help in increasing the blood flow to the groin and helps in maintaining erections. Strengthening the muscles with pelvic floor exercises can actually improve sexual functioning like erections, ejaculations, and orgasm. .
But the BIG QUESTION is, which exercises are most effective? According to this study, pelvic floor exercises, also known as kegel, can help men suffering from ED. The study goes ahead to recommend these exercises as a first line approach for those seeking long term relief from ED.
Sometimes, blood flow problems develop because of damage to the endothelium or penile smooth muscle – tissues in the penis that are important for normal erections. This damage may be the result of high blood pressure or smoking. It can also happen if a man has high cholesterol, triglyceride, or blood sugar levels.
When a man is not sexually aroused his penis is going to feel soft and limp. A man may notice the size of his penis varies based on cold, warmth, and even worry. This is quite normal as it reflects the amount of blood that is coming and going through the penis.
This type of diabetes develops gradually, over years, so the signs and symptoms can seem subtle, and you might think it is something you "just have to live with." If you are overweight or obese, this is the major symptom, but not everyone will be overweight. In fact, weight loss can be a symptom.
If the lining of the blood vessels (known as the endothelium) becomes damaged and inflamed, this can also disrupt nitric oxide (NO) production.
Infection is a concern after placement of a penile prosthesis and is reported as a complication in up to 20% of men undergoing placement of a penile prosthesis. If the device becomes infected more commonly, it needs to be removed. Another prosthesis can be placed after the infection is treated and the penile tissues have healed, but it is a difficult surgery. Erosion of the prosthesis, whereby it compresses through the corporal tissue, into the urethra may occur. Symptoms include pain, blood in the urine, discharge, abnormal stream, and malfunction of the prosthesis. If the prosthesis erodes, it will need to be removed. A catheter is placed to allow the urethra to heal.
Extremely high levels of blood glucose in the blood can be dangerous and life threatening if you have type 1, type 2, or gestational diabetes.
Tadalafil (Cialis) is the third oral medicine approved by the U.S. FDA for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Like sildenafil (Viagra) and vardenafil (Levitra), tadalafil inhibits PDE5 (as described earlier). Unlike the other PDE 5 inhibitors, patients should take tadalafil once daily and is approved for the treatment of BPH (benign enlargement of the prostate).

Of course, the best way of getting at cause and effect would involve an experiment -- randomly assigning some men to a few decades of porn-star athletics, for instance, and others to a relaxing, cloistered celibacy. No one appears to be in a hurry to do this trial.
Lifestyle choices, such as smoking, alcohol abuse, and obesity can impair blood circulation and lead to erectile dysfunction. Smoking, excessive drinking, and drug abuse may damage the blood vessels and reduce blood flow to the penis. Smoking makes men with atherosclerosis even more vulnerable to erectile dysfunction. Smokers have almost twice the risk of erectile dysfunction compared with nonsmokers. Being overweight and getting too little exercise also contribute to erectile dysfunction. Men who exercise regularly have a lower risk of erectile dysfunction.
When 3724 men were questioned about their dietary habits, men who reported a higher caffeine intake were less likely to report E.D. However, this study was based on self-reported data and was not a prospective study (Lopez et al., 2015). Caffeine is a vasoconstrictor, which means that it can reduce blood flow into the penis. Further study is needed to determine whether caffeine improves or worsens E.D. symptoms.
Certain medications can also cause erectile dysfunction as their side effect. These are Anti-hypertensive medicines (medicines for blood pressure) Antiandrogens (medicines used for prostate cancer therapy) Antidepressants (medications for depression) Sedatives (medicines that make a person sleepy) Medicines for ulcers Antihistamines (medicines for cold and allergies) Appetite suppressants

In addition to serious interactions with nitrates, PDE5 inhibitors may also interact with certain antibiotics, such as erythromycin, and acid blockers, such as cimetidine (Tagamet, generic). Inform your doctor about all medications you take.
