What are other treatments for erectile dysfunction (ED)?

ANSWER

Other erectile dysfunction (ED) treatments, including medications, vacuum erection devices, and penile implants, can help you get a healthy erection for sex with a partner or for masturbation.

ED isn’t easy for many men to talk about. But sex, whether through masturbation or with a partner, is a part of a healthy life. The sooner you can discuss erection problems with a doctor and start exploring treatments, the sooner you may be enjoying a more satisfying sex life.
