Erectile dysfunction doesn’t mean your sex life is over. Treatment options are available that can get you back to a satisfying sex life. Let’s talk about options. Treatments for ED include pills, penis injections, vacuum pumps, and penis implants. Pills like Viagra are the most common type of therapy for ED.
Typically, pills must be taken at least 30 minutes before sex. Although pills can be a satisfying solution, they do not work for everyone. Thirty percent of men with erectile dysfunction are unable to achieve a satisfying erection using pills.
Another treatment for ED is penis injections, a therapy that requires men to give themselves a shot on the penis to get an erection. The penis injection must be done five to 20 minutes before sex and are stored in the fridge.
Vacuum pumps are also used to treat ED. Vacuum pumps are placed over the penis and manually pump. The pumping pulls blood into the penis, creating an erection. A constrictive ring is placed at the base of the penis to trap the blood and maintain the erection.
Penis implants are a long-term treatment option for ED. Implants require a brief surgical procedure. There are two types available: malleable and inflatable.
Your doctor may have a recommendation on which implant is right for you. What might be successful in treating another man’s ED may not work for you. Talk with your urologist to determine the best treatment option for you.

On this newsletter we’ll cover what it is, the various causes, how we diagnose it, and the treatments we offer.
