ED can be a sign of a more serious health problem, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes. If you have ED, talk to your doctor to see if it is a symptom of a bigger health problem. If you have any of the following symptoms, call your doctor right away:

  • chest pain
  • shortness of breath

There are several treatment options for ED. The best treatment for you will depend on the cause of your ED and your overall health. Treatment options include:
