Male erectile dysfunction- how to cure this condition?
Hello, my friend is a 56-year-old gentleman. His chief complaint is the inability to obtain erections after having slipped and fallen. He had slipped on the ice, fractured his left patella, and driven his left foot into his perineum. Since that fall he had not had any erections, but he had been able to ejaculate with manual stimulation. He had had a partial evaluation at a clinic prior. This evaluation indicated a low, or borderline low, testosterone level, and he was given a trial on oral testosterone in an attempt to improve his sexual function. He was also evaluated by a psychologist, who thought he did not have a significant psychological cause for his impotence. Despite these measures, his impotence had persisted and had continued to concern him and his wife. How to cure this condition?
@debanjali The first thing your doctor will do is to make sure you're getting the right treatment for any health conditions that could be causing or worsening your erectile dysfunction. Depending on the cause and severity of your erectile dysfunction and any underlying health conditions, you might have various treatment options. Your doctor can explain the risks and benefits of each treatment and will consider your preferences. Your partner's preferences also might play a role in your treatment choices. Oral medications are a successful erectile dysfunction treatment for many men. They include:
Tadalafil (Adcirca, Cialis)
Vardenafil (Levitra, Staxyn)
All four medications enhance the effects of nitric oxide — a natural chemical your body produces that relaxes muscles in the penis. This increases blood flow and allows you to get an erection in response to sexual stimulation. Taking one of these tablets will not automatically produce an erection. Sexual stimulation is needed first to cause the release of nitric oxide from your penile nerves. These medications amplify that signal, allowing normal penile function in some people. Oral erectile dysfunction medications are not aphrodisiacs, will not cause excitement and are not needed in people who get normal erections.
