Men are frequently concerned with their sexual performance and often seek help from supplements and even medications. While both women and men are concerned about their ability to perform in the bedroom, it seems to affect men more deeply. Depression, mood swings, and even loss of self confidence are all common side effects in men who are experiencing problems with sexual performance which is the main reasons why they turn to other methods.

Male enhancement pills have been gaining in popularity in recent years as more men are looking for ways to improve their sexual performance. In most cases men are simple trying to last longer during sexual intimacy, and some of the supplements can actually work. Some men do see an improvement in both their ability to become and stay aroused, along with an increase in their sexual desire. What all men should know is that these sexual benefits are not without risks. Even the all natural herbal supplements also carry the risk of dangerous side effects, which is why men need to know the potential risks before choosing a male enhancement product to help them perform better sexually.

Prescribed Male Enhancement Pills are Often Safer

Any man that is experiencing performance issues in the bedroom should seek advice from a health care professional, and in some cases using a prescribed medication can be the safest form of treatment. Not only will a health care provider explain all of the potential risk and side effects clearly and concisely, it will also give you a chance to voice any questions or concerns. All prescribed male enhancement pills do carry the risk of certain side effects, with the most common ones including difficulty sleeping, seizures, and even heart palpitations. Not only can a health care provider go over the risk of side effects, you will also be better informed as to your chances of possibly developing one.

Herbal Supplements Can Also Have Side Effects

Herbal male enhancement supplements can be purchased at most health food stores, and are available without having to visit a health care provider. For some men this is simply easier than having to discuss their sexual performance issues, but they should also be aware that herbal supplements also have the potential to cause serious side effects. Many of the possible side effects are remarkably similar to the ones that can be experienced by the prescribed medication and include;

* Insomnia
* Rapid heart beat or palpitations
* Seizures and even stroke are also possible

Allergies can Also Cause Potential Side Effects

One of the most common causes for men to experience side effects caused by male enhancement pills is an allergic reaction to one of the ingredients. While law requires that all ingredients be clearly listed on both prescribed and herbal male enhancement supplements, it is not uncommon for a man not to know if he is allergic to herbs not normally encountered in his normal daily diet. This alone is one of the best reasons to visit a health care provider before adding any supplement to your daily routine. No matter how embarrassing it may be to speak to a professional about a sexual performance problem, it is certainly better than experiencing one of the potentially life threatening side effects. Some of the more common complaints include;

* Redness or swelling on the face
* Skin rashes or hives developing
* Shortness of breathe
* Dizziness

If any of these or other symptoms are experienced, a health care professional should be immediately consulted.

Conclusion

Male enhancement products can help to improve a man's performance in the bedroom, but most importantly they can help to give him a sense of confidence during sex that might have previously been missing. Not only can performance and endurance increase, but some men also experience a rise in libido and the ability to become aroused. While these enhancement pills can help, they can also carry the risk of severe and life threatening side effects. Instead of risking his life simply to avoid an embarrassing talk, a health care provider should be consulted before adding any type of supplement to your daily diet.
