What are the treatment options for erectile dysfunction?

Is always first and main treatment of sexual dysfunction - it medical treatment. There are a lot of medications on the market. Of the side effects, a decrease in blood pressure can be noted, and it is also not recommended for men with cardiovascular diseases. Over time, the effect of the pills decreases, because the body gets used to it and requires an increase in the dose of the drug, which is also characterized by an increase in the likelihood of side effects.

Exist intracavernous/penile injection one well-known drug. You can find its commercial name on the search page. An experienced urologist usually teaches the patient how to properly inject. These injections help well if the pills do not give the desired effect in case of impotence, or if there is a strong side effect from the same sidenafil and the like. The main inconvenience is that it is necessary to give an injection before the “beginning”, the effect lasts for two days (it consists in increasing potency). More than three injections per week are prohibited. The main problem is that in some the body gets used to the active substance, so over time the injections do not give the desired effect. But nevertheless, the drug is very proven and is often used in Spain.

Recall that there are also special creams containing vasodilating components that are applied to the head of the penis and cause vasodilation and improve potency. Implantation penile prosthesis is the last therapeutic agent precisely in cases where other methods of treatment, mainly oral drugs and intracavernous injections, have proven ineffective. And also it is prescribed after radical prostatectomy, serious traumatic consequences and diabetics.

However, I must also say that we are very demanding with the admission criteria, because such an operation can only be performed by those who have tried all the methods of treatment, or the person had a serious injury or oncology, or even injections do not help him.
