What is Erectile Dysfunction treatment?
If you think that you have a Erectile Dysfunction, the first step is to seek a consultation with a Urologist or Family Doctor. Treatments suggested include:
Medications:The common oral medications recommended are Avanafil (Stendra), Sildenafil (Viagra), Tadalafil (Cialis) and Vardenafil (Levitra, Staxyn). These all Erectile Dysfunction drugs enhance nitric oxide (a chemical that relaxes penis muscles). As a result, blood flow increases, allowing you to get erection. These medicines should be taken after a doctor’s prescription.
Penis pumps and implants:The penis pump is a vacuum erection device used to give erection that lasts for long time. In the treatment of penis implants, a device is placed surgically into both sides of penis.
Psychological counseling:If ED is caused by anxiety, stress or depression or if the problem is creating stress for you and your partner then your doctor recommend psychologist or counselor. For better results, it is necessary to include your partner in sessions.
