Around 30 million people in the United States have erectile dysfunction (ED). Although this condition is extremely common, it can be extremely frustrating for any individual to deal with. You may be happy to know that there are several treatment options available to relieve the symptoms associated with this condition.
Treatment Options for Erectile Dysfunction
One of the most common treatment methods is the pill. Men are able to achieve relief from ED symptoms by taking a pill prior to sexual intercourse. For men who do not want to take the pill, there are several other treatment options available.
The Vacuum Erection Device (VED)
The vacuum erection device, also known as a penile pump, increases the blood flow to the penis through manual pumping. The device is placed over the penis, and then a hand device is used to pump the device to create suction. As the penis becomes erect, a tension ring is then placed around the base to hold it upright and in place for approximately 30 minutes.
A penile implant can be placed in the erection chambers of the penis within a 30 to 45-minute procedure. The device is water-based and allows you to control when and how long to have an erection.
Men who experience ED often suffer from low testosterone levels. In some cases, testosterone replacement can provide relief from ED symptoms.
This process involves injecting medications into the base of the penis with a very small needle prior to intercourse. Men are able to perform these injections discretely on their own, which can help lessen some of the self-consciousness they may experience about the situation.
