Erectile Dysfunction (ED).

What is ED?

Erectile dysfunction is the inability to get or maintain an erection adequate for sex. There are many different causes, but ED ultimately occurs when there is too little blood flow into the penis and too much blood flow out, partially due to an enzyme called PDE5. Oral ED medications block PDE5 to increase blood flow into the penis and decrease blood flow out.

Can it be treated?

Yes. ED medication interferes with the breakdown of chemicals required to obtain and maintain an erection. This interference keeps more of those chemicals in action longer, improving the ability to get and maintain an erection.

Erectile dysfunction causes:

There are many possible causes of ED, and they can include both emotional and physical conditions. Common causes include:

  • cardiovascular disease
  • diabetes
  • hypertension, or high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • obesity
  • low testosterone levels or other hormone imbalances
  • kidney disease
  • increased age
  • stress
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • relationship problems
  • certain prescription medications, such as those used to treat high blood pressure or depression
  • sleep disorders
  • drug use
  • consuming too much alcohol
  • using tobacco products
  • certain health conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • damage to the pelvic area through injury or surgery
  • Peyronie’s disease, which causes scar tissue to develop in the penis

ED can be caused by only one of these factors or by several of them. That’s why it’s important to work with your doctor so that they can rule out or treat any underlying medical conditions. Learn more about the causes of ED.

Premature ejaculation (PE).

PE can refer to any situation where the man or his partner experience distress, frustration, or the avoidance of sexual intimacy due to endurance concerns.

What is premature ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation is when ejaculation occurs earlier than desired, often within 1 minute of penetrative sex. It’s characterized by an inability to delay orgasm to the extent that it causes bother or frustration to the patient and/or their partner.

Can it be treated?

Yes. Although no single treatment works for everyone, many men can be treated successfully through over-the-counter topicals, prescription medication, behavior modification, or a combination of these treatments.
