Before you throw away that bottle of erectile dysfunction supplements it may be to your advantage to give them another shot. When erection supplements don’t work as expected there could be a simple fix. Often, those who stated their pills weren’t working found the following to be true.
1. Not enough stimulation
Before assuming that it’s the supplements that aren’t working, take a close look at circumstances you took them in. Erectile dysfunction supplements are miracle drugs. You are not going to get a good erection if you are not aroused at the activity.
In order for the supplements, and your penis, to obtain and maintain a firm erection, there must be sufficient stimulation taking place. Try livening up your bedroom activities, include adequate foreplay sessions, and actually participate in intimate activities together that get your motor running.
2. Stressed or tired
Sometimes, failure to achieve erection has nothing to do with your penis and everything to do with your health or mental status. If you are exhausted from a long day and are feeling stressed out or tired, it may be necessary to unwind and relax a bit before you plan any intimate activity. If you are truly exhausted, your body is likely in need of sleep too badly to do anything more than cuddle. That has nothing to do with erectile dysfunction and everything to do with not getting enough rest.
If you are well rested, well stimulated, and it’s still not happening, it may be that you are not taking the proper dosage for your body. Everyone’s body is different which is why most supplements and medications have a minimum and maximum dosage level. If your erectile dysfunction supplement is not doing the trick, try taking the maximum dosage.
4. Full Stomach
Taking your supplement on a full stomach is not the best way to go. If you take your supplements immediately after eating and expect them to work as expected you’re forgetting that your stomach is already busy trying to get through what you just ate. Your stomach will only absorb a portion of your supplement if it is digesting food. Unless the supplement specifically says it must be taken on a full stomach, take it on an empty one. This means that you need to take it one hour before or 2-3 hours after eating.
Initiating sex too soon after taking your supplement is not going to work. Your stomach must first break down, then absorb the supplement and get it into your blood stream. This then has to begin to have its effects as it circulates through the miles of veins and arteries in your body before it can begin doing its job. Make sure you understand how long it should take for it to work. Some types of erectile dysfunction supplements can work in as little as 20 minutes to a half hour but others may need 2-3 hours to work.
6. Giving Up Too Soon
Try your chosen supplement at least 6 times before deciding it is not going to work for you. Try the supplement at the lowest recommended dosage twice, if it doesn’t work, try it at the mid-point of the minimum and maximum dosages twice. If that hasn’t worked, try it at the highest dosage twice.
7. Try Another Type
Just because one supplement didn’t work for you doesn’t mean none of them will. Everyone’s body chemistry and health are different.
What works for someone else may not work for you and vice versa.
Try different formulations to see which one will give you the desired results.
