Your ED Treatment Options
As long as you're a man who is healthy enough for sexual intercourse, you have
options. From surgery to prescription medication, there are many treatments available to treat erectile dysfunction (ED).
Pills: The most common ED option
Pills are a great option. They are often prescribed as a first-choice therapy for ED. But
pills don't work for everyone and might not be an option. Some men who take pills
such as nitrates (for a heart condition) are not able to take a pill for their ED. The best
way to find out if you can take pills is to ask your healthcare provider.
Injection therapy: A second-line option
Another treatment your healthcare provider may tell you about is CAVERJECT (alprostadil for injection) Sterile Powder. This effective treatment may be able to help you have a healthier sex life again. Why? Because when used properly, CAVERJECT can help produce an erection firm enough for sex.
Other treatment options
There are many treatments for ED. Some others include:
This therapy is a small pellet of medicine, about the size of a grain of rice. Using an applicator, the pellet is inserted into the urethra. The urethra is located at the tip of the penis and is where urine comes out.
A vacuum device increases blood flow to the penis. A constriction ring is then placed at the base of the penis. This helps maintain an erection.
Sex therapy is a common way to treat ED. A therapist can help a patient find ways to cope with sexual issues. A patient can go with his partner or just go alone for advice.
Talk to your healthcare provider:
ED is a treatable medical condition. If you are not satisfied with the quality of your erections, talk to your doctor. Only your healthcare provider can decide which treatment is right for you.
