There are a variety of treatment options available for ED. Some of them are non-invasive, such as oral medications, while others are more invasive, such as surgical procedures. Whichever treatment option you decide to pursue, it is important to understand your insurance coverage. Your health insurance may not cover sexual dysfunction treatments, so it is important to check with your provider before starting a new treatment.
A semi-rigid penile prosthesis is another treatment option for erectile dysfunction. This implant is shaped like a penis, and it can be manually adjusted to fit the size of the penis. However, a penile implant is not suitable for all patients. The implant may lead to complications and low patient satisfaction, and some patients may decide to have it removed.
Organic ED is a type of erectile dysfunction caused by abnormalities in the penile arteries and veins. It is the most common type of erectile dysfunction, and it affects mostly older men. It is most often caused by arteriosclerosis, but it may also be caused by trauma to the arteries. High cholesterol levels and cigarette smoking are also known risk factors for organic ED.
If the causes of erectile dysfunction are not found within the body, it can be treated with oral medication or surgery. Treatments for erectile dysfunction can also include counselling, injections, or even an implant. A medical professional will help you find the right treatment for erectile dysfunction based on your lifestyle and overall health.
Penile injections are one of the most common treatments for erectile dysfunction. A thin needle is used to inject the drug into the penis. While many patients find this treatment uncomfortable, most do not. The most common drug used for ED is prostaglandin E1. It can be combined with other drugs to increase blood flow in the penis. These drugs are called bimixes and are more effective than single medications and are less likely to cause side effects.
The goal of treatment for erectile dysfunction is to restore sexual pleasure. The cause of erectile dysfunction can be a simple issue or a chronic problem. In severe cases, it can be an underlying symptom of another condition. If left untreated, erectile dysfunction can be progressive. If a problem is present, you should consult a medical professional to discuss what TRT therapy is and what other treatment options may exist as soon as possible.
A normal erection depends on intact blood vessel and nerve systems inside the penis. During an erection, the blood flow increases through the arteries, which fill the erectile tissue. The somatic nervous system causes the muscles of the penis to contract, which forces additional blood into the penis.
