Zapping penis with ‘magic wand’ could beat erectile dysfunction in just 15 minutes 0 159

A “magic wand” is giving men their erections back with treatment sessions of just 15 minutes, experts say.

The device for erectile dysfunction (ED) gives out shockwaves that help blood flow to the penis, while also repairing damaged tissue.

It’s a relatively new way of tackling the common problem, adding to various pills, hacks and tech.

A clinic in Surrey, Men’s Health Clinic Kingston, is finding huge success with shockwave therapy, which usually requires around six sessions for six weeks.

Dr Peter Holy said: “Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that can be done in just 15 minutes and without anaesthesia.

“It has proven to be an effective procedure for our patients who suffer from erectile dysfunction.

“But shockwave therapy has also got a huge range of other benefits too.

“Other conditions that can be treated by shockwave therapy are chronic pelvic pain conditions, chronic prostatitis and penile pain.”

Shockwave therapy is best for patients who have vascular ED, when blood flow to the penis is restricted.

This could be due to atherosclerosis – when the arteries become clogged or narrowed, often due to conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol and obesity.

After applying a numbing gel, sound waves of a high-frequency are applied to the penis through a wand which strengthens blood vessels.

The pulses stimulate the growth of new blood vessels while also breaking down plaque built-up in existing vessels. 

According to Men’s Health Clinic, 50 per cent of men with mild to severe ED could benefit from it.

It claims after six sessions, 50 to 80 per cent of patients will report an improvement in their erections.

One study suggested the effects last around a year, Healthline reports.

Dr Holy said: “Advances in tech in recent years means treating erectile dysfunction has never been easier or more effective.”

ED, also called impotence, is very common, the NHS says.

Its causes include depression, alcohol abuse or hormone problems, which are not known to benefit from shockwave therapy.

Treatments for ED sometimes target the root problem, such as therapy for a psychological cause or lifestyle changes.

ED is more often a problem in men over the age of 40, and is also a common side-effect of prostate cancer, with an estimated 47,500 British men diagnosed with the disease each year.

Dr Holy’s clinic works closely with leading prostate cancer facility Proton Therapy Center Prague in taking a holistic approach to treating the deadly disease.

“Thankfully, there are some incredibly effective treatments available today and the effects of prostate cancer can be treated better than ever before,” he said.

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 40

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 28

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

Surely he can’t just show up when he likes?

I’m a mess and need to start getting a grip for the kids’ sake.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
