Erectile Dysfunction Treatment

Erectile dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, is a type of sexual dysfunction characterized by the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis during sexual activity. ED can have psychological consequences as it can be tied to relationship difficulties and self-image.

A number of health conditions can cause ED, including:

  • cardiovascular disease
  • diabetes
  • high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • kidney disease
  • multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • metabolic syndrome

Treatment for ED may include:

  1. oral medications, such as sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis), or vardenafil (Levitra)
  2. injections into the penis, such as alprostadil (Caverject Impulse, Edex) or a combination of alprostadil and phentolamine (Caverject Injection)
  3. penis pumps, which involve drawing blood into the penis and then applying aconstriction ring to keep the blood there while the penis expands
  4. surgical options, such as penile implants or penile arterial revascularization surgery

Your doctor will likely ask you questions about your symptoms and health history. They may do tests to determine if you have an underlying health condition. You should expect a physical exam where your doctor will listen to your heart and lungs, check your blood pressure, and examine your penis and testicles.

Based on your symptoms and the results of your physical exam, your doctor may recommend a psychological exam. This is especially true if your ED has psychological causes. If you’re scheduled for a psychological exam, your doctor will ask about your:

  • symptoms
  • medical and surgical history
  • medications
  • alcohol and drug use
  • psychological history, such as any previous mental health disorders
  • relationship history
  • family history
