If you’re having trouble getting and keeping an erection, you may not have erectile dysfunction (ED). It might be a temporary problem brought on by things like stress, fatigue, or drinking too much alcohol.
Your doctor should be able to clear up the mystery. So go pay a visit.
To a healthy young man, erectile dysfunction (ED) may seem unthinkable. You can probably remember times (think back to high school) when you wished it wasn't so easy to get an erection.
But as you age -- and especially when you have diabetes -- you may notice some changes. Maybe it takes more coaxing to get erect than it used to. Sometimes it may take more direct stimulation of the penis, whereas merely a daydream or the suggestion of sex was once enough. Or perhaps your erections aren't quite as...
Avanafil (Stendra), sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis) and vardenafil (Levitra, Staxyn) will work for most men. You take these medications before sex. When they work, you can get a normal erection when you’re turned on.
Vacuum inflation tools are an option. They draw blood into your penis. You slip a rubber ring over the base to keep your erection. Remove the ring after 30 minutes to restore circulation and prevent damage.
If the problem is with your blood vessels, surgery to open arteries that bring blood to the penis may help. Which procedure you’ll need depends on your symptoms. Surgery isn’t a main treatment option, but it can help if your ED was caused by an injury.
