Modern Treatments for Erectile Dysfunction – INFOGRAPHIC
10 Jun. 2016

One of the most common problem of the male urogenital system is erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction is a disorder that may affect men of different ages. Though it is not a disease, but merely a symptom of another health  problem, it significantly affects the daily life of the representatives of stronger sex.

Often impotence is mistakenly considered to be incurable and men do not seek medical help being embarrassed to talk  about it. This increases their emotional stress causing such conditions as anxiety and depression that only worsen  erectile dysfunction. Fortunately, erectile dysfunction can be successfully treated in most men. The effective  treatment option depends on the cause of the problem. If erectile dysfunction is the result of an underlying health  condition, such as heart disease or diabetes, that condition may need to be treated first. Certain medications can  also cause erectile dysfunction, so the patient should discuss the alternative treatments for the disease that will  not affect his sexual function.

Other types of treatment for erectile dysfunction include: ED drugs, injections and suppositories, vacuum devices, surgery, and counseling if the cause of ED problem is of psychological nature.
