Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the inability of a man to maintain an erection sufficient for satisfying sexual activity of himself and/or his partner.
Erectile Dysfunction is treatable in most cases
It can be caused by multiple medical conditions, ranging from blood-flow problems and diabetes, to psychological issues such as performance anxiety.
It can cause self-esteem issues and strain your relationship with your partner, who may sometimes feel responsible.
Know what questions to ask
Your physician should evaluate you FIRST if you think you have ED, before any medications are prescribed.
We can help you to ask the right questions before you see your doctor. If you have a cause for your erectile dysfunction that is due to an underlying condition such as diabetes or blood-flow issues, treating the underlying condition may improve or eliminate the ED.
Not all cases require blood tests or imaging. If your doctor determines that you need medications for ED, and these medications work, it should generally be okay to get them refilled from the most cost-effective pharmacy within the parameters of the initial prescription.
