Erectile dysfunction (ED) is when a man cannot get or keep an erection. The condition prevents the man from having sex or finishing sex. This condition used to be called impotence. ED can occur at any age, but it is more common in men older than 75 years of age.
Hormonal therapy is not used as a primary therapy for the treatment of ED. Testosterone therapy is used if there is ED and symptoms of low testosterone, as well a low blood level of testosterone.

Patient can inject medications directly into the corpora cavernosa to help attain and maintain erections. Medications such as papaverine hydrochloride, phentolamine, and prostaglandin E1 (alprostadil) can be used alone or in combinations to attain erections. All of these medications are vasodilators and work by increasing blood flow into the penis. Prostaglandin E1 (Caverject, Edex) is easier to obtain; however, it is associated with penile pain in some individuals. The use of combinations of two or three of these medications can decrease the risk of having penile pain.

But exercise does more for you than simply fill you with a feeling of euphoria. It can also help you get stronger erections. We look at the science behind exercise and erections – and give you 3 types of exercises that will maintain and improve your erectile function.
Tablets for erectile dysfunction are called phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE5) inhibitors such as sildenafil (Viagra, Silvasta, Vedafil), tadalafil (Cialis) and vardenafil (Levitra). These medicines usually enable an erection by relaxing the blood vessels in your penis, but only when you are stimulated or aroused. They are all similarly effective. Read more about PDE5 inhibitors and frequently asked questions about their use.

An ultrasound examination of your penis and testicles may be performed. The principle of ultrasound is similar to the sonar used on submarines. Sound waves are reflected back when they contact relatively dense structures, such as fibrous tissue or blood vessel walls. These reflected sound waves are then converted into pictures of the internal structures being studied.
Studies show about 5 percent of men who are 40 years old have full-blown ED, and that percentage jumps to 15 percent for men who are 70.
Specific treatment for erectile dysfunction will be determined by your doctor based on your age, overall health, medical history, the extent of the disease and your tolerance for specific medications, procedures or therapies. Of course, your personal opinions and preferences will also be taken into consideration. Treatments may include: Sildenafil Citrate (Viagra™): A prescription medication taken orally for the treatment of ED. Viagra does not directly cause penile erection, but affects the response to sexual stimulation. Vardenafil Citrate (Levitra™): In clinical studies, Levitra has been shown to work quickly and improve sexual function in men the first time they take the medication. It has been shown to work well in men of all ages, in men with diabetes, and in men who have had the surgical procedure called radical prostatectomy. Tadalafil Citrate (Cialis™): Studies have indicated that Cialis stays in the body longer than other medications in its class. Most men who take this medication find that an erection occurs within 30 minutes and the effects of the medication may last up to 36 hours. Testosterone Replacement Therapy: May improve your energy, mood, and bone density, increase muscle mass and weight, and heighten sexual interest if you have deficient levels of testosterone. Available in an oral form and as a skin patch. Hydraulic Pump: A pump and two cylinders are placed within the erection chambers of your penis, which cause an erection by releasing a saline solution; it can also remove the solution to deflate the penis. Prosthesis: Two semi-rigid but bendable rods are placed within the erection chambers of your penis, which allows manipulation into an erect or non-erect position. Interlocking Soft Plastic Blocks: These are placed within the erection chambers of your penis and can be inflated or deflated using a cable that passes through them.
