How Does Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Help?
Normally when men are sexually aroused, their brain begin to send nerve signals to the penis, this is what causes an erection (as blood flows through the penis it causes hardness). Erectile dysfunction, also known as ED or impotence, occurs when a man cannot get or maintain an erection to allow him to have satisfactory sex. Our erectile dysfunction treatment can be helpful to men who want to achieve an erection and enjoy their sex life. The choice of treatment depends on the underlying cause of the problem. Erectile dysfunction is very common and based on research it affect roughly 50% of all men aged 40-70. Erectile dysfunction is very different to issues with ejaculation (for example, premature ejaculation – where arousal, orgasm and ejaculation happen quickly).
Erectile dysfunction is caused by psychological and physical factors. These include:
Psychological: anxiety or stress, depression, relationship difficulties.
Physical: any problem that relates to the nervous system or to circulation could cause erectile dysfunction, e.g. the narrowing of blood vessels leading to the penis (as a result of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, or other factors), an injury or as a result of surgery. Changes in hormone levels can also cause ED. It is also possible for some medicines to cause erectile dysfunction. You might find that you sometimes experience difficulty getting an erection and other times find it very easy. For example, you might get an erection in the morning and when you masturbate, but not when you try to have sex with your partner. In this type of scenario, it is likely that the cause of your erectile dysfunction is psychological. It could be stress related, for example. If you can’t ever get an erection, under any circumstances, the causes of your impotence are probably physical.
Example of medicines that can cause ED in men;
- Diuretics – cause your body to increase the amount of urine it produces. Commonly used to treat high blood pressure, heart failure and kidney problems.
- Antihypertensives – used to treat high blood pressure, e.g. beta-blockers.
- Fibrates – prescribed to decrease cholesterol levels.
- Antipsychotics – used for some mental health conditions, like schizophrenia.
- Antidepressants – prescribed to tackle depression or sometimes pain
- Corticosteroids – contain steroids (these are a type of hormone)
- H2-antagonists – for stomach ulcers
- Anticonvulsants – prescribed to people with epilepsy
- Antihistamines – used to manage allergies, like hay fever
- Anti-androgens – suppress androgens (male sex hormones)
- Cytotoxics – used in chemotherapy
If you’re worried that your medication is causing erectile dysfunction, speak to your GP as there might be other options that you could try. Don’t stop taking a medicine that your GP has prescribed without discussing it with a qualified professional though.
- Viagra (active ingredient: sildenafil)
- Viagra Connect (Over The Counter)
- Cialis (active ingredient: tadalafil)
- Levitra (active ingredient: vardenafil)
- Spedra (active ingredient: avanafil)
The above list are erectile dysfunction treatments, of which Viagra and Levitra work for between four and eight hours after you take them. Cialis and Tadalafil last for longer – about a day and a half – so are more suited if you need a longer-lasting treatment, for example, over a full weekend.
All erectile dysfunction treatments start working within half an hour to an hour. The medication will work faster if you take it on an empty stomach. You can then eat an hour after taking it without affecting its effectiveness.
You should talk to your doctor about which erectile dysfunction treatment might be best for you, depending on whether you have taken one before and how often you intend to have sex.
If you find that PDE-5 inhibitors don’t work, you might want to consider whether you waited long enough for the erectile dysfunction treatment to kick in, whether you waited too long for the medication to kick in, whether you had a high enough dose, and whether you felt sexually aroused. You still need to feel sexually stimulated to get an erection when taking an erectile dysfunction treatment.
