    In a randomized, controlled trial of 55 British men, three months of twice-daily sets of Kegel exercises, which strengthen several muscles of the pelvic floor, combined with biofeedback plus advice on lifestyle changes -- quitting smoking, losing weight, limiting alcohol -- worked far better than just advice on lifestyle changes. During the next three months, the control group also practiced Kegels and experienced similar improvements in erections. At six months, 40% of all the subjects had regained normal erectile function and an additional nearly 36% had improved.
