Available Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Options
There are many erectile dysfunction (ED) treatments to help treat this issue. These can be non-invasive and non-surgical or can involve penile implants depending on the severity and needs of the patient.
For all the options, it is essential that you discuss the options with your doctor who will help you understand the pros and cons of each, or refer you for appropriate guidance or treatment. Depending on the extent of the problem and any related medical conditions, your doctor can often advise the right treatment for you.
Here are some non-surgical treatment options, usually for the treatment of ED with no particular health problems:
Lifestyle changes including:
Reducing alcohol intake
Reducing stress and anxiety
Healthy diet changes
Sex therapy can help a psychological problem. An experienced therapist can be highly effective in tackling the root causes. This therapy can be used in combination with other forms of treatment. ED can be caused due to stress or psychological issues where psychological support is very important.
Vacuum pump therapy is a popular non-surgical, non-invasive option that works well.
There are also more invasive medical options, and these are summarised below:
Oral medications such as Viagra or Levitra
Treatment of any anatomical abnormality if present:
Treatment of any hormone abnormality. Including testosterone treatment in case levels are low. Medications to treat atherosclerosis. Including cholesterol-lowering statins and drugs to lower your blood pressure.
Surgically implanted devices can help strengthen the penis from inside. These are advisable for men who cannot get an erection any other way.
These are some of the various treatments available to help erectile dysfunction. The condition can be temporary or permanent, is often the result of a multitude of factors, and usually managed with a personalised treatment plan using a combination of options. Doctor’s advice is highly recommended before proceeding with any of these treatments.
