How to treat male sexual dysfunction

There are many options for male sexual dysfunction. Based on many factors, your doctor will decide which treatment is best for you. The National Institute of Health estimates that 5% of men over 40 experience erectile dysfunction for a prolonged period of time, while 15% to 25% of those 65 and older have the same problem. It is more common for men who have experienced it for a short time. It is important that psychological causes such as stress, anxiety, and depression are ruled out. Side effects from daily medication or drug abuse should not be considered as a contributing factor.

These are some treatment options your doctor might recommend.

  • Lifestyle changes: Sometimes it’s as simple as changing your lifestyle to improve erection. Exercise, healthy eating, and stress relief can all improve your erection.
  • Oral medication: These medications can be used to treat erectile problems. These medications relax your penis smooth muscle, increasing blood flow and allowing you to erect.
  • Injections/suppositories: Similar to ED pills, the injectable medicine relaxes the muscles in the surrounding blood vessels of the penis, increasing the blood flow into the penis allowing an erection to occur
    • Alprostadil is a small needle that’s used to inject medication into the penis.
    • Alprostadil intraurethral: With a special applicator, a tiny amount of Alprostadil can be placed in the penile.
  • Vacuum pumps are used to increase blood flow to the penis. The vacuum tube pushes air out and draws blood into the penile tissue. To maintain the “pumping effect” of erection, many people place constriction rings at the penis base.
  • Implants for the penile
    • Inflatable Implants: These cylinders have been inserted into the penis erection chambers, and then inflated using a hydraulic pump that is placed in the scrotum.
    • Semi-rigid and bendable implants are called malleable implants. These rods can be manually adjusted to the position you desire by being inserted into your penis.
