Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction

An erection happens as a result of increased blood flow into the penis. It is usually stimulated by either sexual thoughts or direct contact with the penis. When a man becomes sexually excited, muscles in their penis relax which allows for increased blood flow through the penile arteries.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to acquire or keep an erection long enough to have sexual intercourse. This condition is also sometimes referred to as impotence. Occasional Erectile Dysfunction is not uncommon. Some men also experience it during times of stress. However, frequent Erectile Dysfunction can be a sign of health problems that need medical treatment.

In some cases, it can also be a sign of emotional or relationship difficulties that may need to be addressed. Some other types of male sexual dysfunction include: premature ejaculation delayed or absent ejaculation as well as lack of interest in sex

Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction

  • Trouble getting an erection
  • Difficulty maintaining an erection during sexual activities
  • Reduced interest in sex

Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

There are many possible causes for Erectile Dysfunction such as:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Hyperlipidemia
  • Damage from cancer or surgery
  • Injuries
  • Obesity or being overweight
  • Increased age
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship problems
  • Drug use
  • Alcohol use
  • Smoking

 


 


More About Treatment

Treatment of Erectile Dysfunction

The first thing the doctor will do is to make sure that you are getting the right treatment for any health conditions that could be causing or worsening your erectile dysfunction.

Depending on the cause and severity of the erectile dysfunction and any underlying health conditions, there could be various treatment options. The doctor can explain the risks and benefits of each treatment and will consider the patient's preferences. 

ED Treatments
Non-invasive treatments

Non-invasive treatments are often tried first. Most of the best-known treatments for ED work well and are safe. Some of the options are:

  • Oral drugs or pills known as phosphodiesterase type-5 inhibitors are most often prescribed in the U.S. for ED (Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, Stendra)
  • Testosterone Therapy (when low testosterone is detected in blood testing)
  • Penile Injections (ICI, intracavernosal Alprostadil)
  • Intraurethral medication (IU, Alprostadil)
  • Vacuum Erection Devices
  • Penile Implants

Surgery
Penile implants are most often placed under anesthesia. If a patient has a systemic, skin, or urinary tract infection, this surgery should be postponed until all infections are treated. If a man is on blood thinners, then he may need to talk with a medical expert about stopping the medications for elective surgery and healing.

Most often, one small surgical cut is made. The cut is either above the penis where it joins the belly, or under the penis where it joins the scrotum. No tissue is removed. Blood loss is typically small. A patient will either go home on the same day or spend one night in the hospital.
