A considerable proportion of men have ED due to treatable psychological factors. Following the treatment of a physical reason, self-esteem issues may continue to affect normal function and performance. Psychological therapy may be beneficial when combined with medical or surgical treatment.
Sex therapists stress the need for men and their partners to be motivated and willing to adjust to psychological and behavioral changes, particularly those caused by medical or surgical therapy.
Treatment methods for ED that are now accessible, in addition to lifestyle modifications and sex therapy, include the following:
Viagra®, Levitra®, and Cialis® has changed how erectile dysfunction is treated. These FDA-approved drugs help more than half of men with penile stiffness. They are not, however, a successful therapy for all guys!
Some men experience adverse effects, while others do not get a satisfactory erection with these drugs. Some men cannot take them because they are on nitrates or alpha-blockers, while others find the drugs too pricey. However, Indian PDE-5 inhibitors are reasonably priced.
Male ED caused by low testosterone levels can be treated with testosterone injections, patches, and gels. This therapy restores your male hormone levels to normal.
Caverject® and Edex® (alprostadil) are FDA-approved drugs that, when injected into the penile erection chambers, can cause an erection. Although some men find this a suitable answer to their erection difficulties, penile injection treatment is frequently uncomfortable. After a while, many men cease penile injection treatment. Papaverine injections have been replaced with these injections.
VCDs comprise a plastic cylinder, a vacuum pump, and a constricting band. VCDs have evolved and are now a viable option for confident men. Many men, however, find these gadgets to be inconvenient and dirty. They require a constricting ring at the penis base, which restricts penile blood flow and can prevent ejaculation.
Men who do not react to milder therapies are frequently candidates for penile implants. These implants, which might be malleable or inflatable, are performed regularly at our clinic. Implants are entirely internal and are inserted in the penile erection chambers and surrounding tissues.
The penis and scrotum will seem normal once you have recovered. When inflated, these implants provide a firm, dependable erection, and a natural-looking penis when deflated. You may have sex as frequently as you want and for as long as you want with a penile implant. An implant may restore a man's sexual confidence and erections, a considerable advantage.
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment for erectile dysfunction that uses low-intensity sound waves to stimulate blood flow and improve penile tissue health. It is a safe and effective treatment with few side effects, and it can be an option for men who have not responded to other treatments.
A P-shot or PRP injection is a procedure that involves injecting platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into the penis. PRP is a concentrated form of blood plasma that contains growth factors that can help to improve blood flow and tissue repair in the penis. This can lead to improvements in erectile function.
