If I see a urologist for erectile dysfunction, what will they ask?

ANSWER

The urologist will ask what happens when you have sex. This will help him know where to start. He’ll use your answers to track your progress.

He’ll ask more questions about your health and give you a physical exam. You may have to have more blood work, an ultrasound, or take part in a sleep study.
