What is Erectile Dysfunction?
50% of men experience intermittent episodes of erectile dysfunction.
Erectile dysfunction is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual performance (for both partners).
What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?
The prevalence of erectile dysfunction increases from 40% in 50-year-olds to 66% in 70-year-olds, so age is a major risk factor for developing erectile dysfunction. However, there are several other risk factors that can contribute towards the development of the condition, including:
- Pelvic floor weakness
- Hormonal abnormalities
- Neurological problems
- Vascular insufficiency
- Certain drugs
- Trauma to the pelvic area

What are the Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction?

- Reduced sexual desire
Men with erectile dysfunction may also suffer from depression and low self-esteem, and may experience difficulties establishing and maintaining relationships.
How Can You Prevent Erectile Dysfunction?
Changing up your lifestyle can help to reduce your likelihood of developing erectile dysfunction, however these methods cannot completely prevent it.
- Kegel! – Pelvic floor exercises are the first-line treatment for men seeking resolution of their erectile dysfunction. Over 75% of men see a total cure or improvement in their erectile dysfunction after 6 months of pelvic floor exercises.
- Quit smoking – Smoking can damage your blood vessels, and erectile dysfunction is often caused by poor blood supply to the penis.
- Eat healthy – Those who adopt a healthy diet can prevent the development of erectile dysfunction. Eating fruit, vegetables, nuts, wholegrains, and fish can help to prevent erectile dysfunction.
- Maintain a healthy weight – Obesity increases your risk of developing a multitude of diseases or conditions, including erectile dysfunction. Losing weight can also be one of the best ways to restore normal erectile function.

Daz – The Kegel8 device was worth every penny
“I have now been using my Kegel8 device for nearly 2 weeks now and my penis sensation is remarkable O M G. l had lost sensation in my shaft and head of penis almost 25 years ago. But I have begun to quite enjoy the therapeutic sensation via the anal probe especially when using I the ‘erection' programme. How bloody wonderful is this.”
Anton – Very happy with my improvement
“I suffer from both ED and Benign Prostatic Enlargement. I have been using the Kegel8 since I purchased it some weeks ago. I have to say that I have noticed an improvement in my ED, sometimes spectacularly so! I am continuing to use on Pr5 for erections and hope to see some more improvement, although I am currently happy with what I have achieved do far.
Results don't come overnight, you do have to persevere for a few weeks, but I am a very happy man so far. I use the anal probe, and with plenty of gel, it is not uncomfortable, nor unpleasant to use.”
