About Erectile Dysfunction
Most men will experience erectile dysfunction (ED) at some point, either as a one-off or recurrent problem). It may often be a natural part of the ageing process. While there are several different causes for ED, in most cases it is due to a reduced blood flow to the penis when aroused. There are medicines, such as those listed above, that have been designed to help improve this.
It's important to bear in mind, however, that ED can often be a symptom of health conditions that affect your blood vessels and heart, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. As such, it is always best to have a physical health check to rule out the possibility of your ED being related to a more serious underlying health condition.
How ED treatments work
Erectile dysfunction treatments work by relaxing the arteries which supply blood to the penis, allowing for an increased flow of blood.
Some men may want to try counselling to treat psychological causes of erectile dysfunction. Some sexual health clinics (also known as GUM clinics) offer this service if you are interested in counselling.
