What Is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction or impotence is when the person cannot get or keep an erection firm enough for sex. Erection issues can occur anytime, but they are usually not a cause of concern. However, erectile dysfunction is a major medical problem and can cause stress, lower your self-confidence, and cause relationship problems. Erection problems might be a sign of underlying medical conditions that require urgent medical care and attention. So, do not feel embarrassed and consult your doctor about the treatment plan for erectile dysfunction. Sometimes, treating the underlying medical condition might reverse erectile dysfunction.

What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction is usually associated with problems in male sexual arousal because it is a complex process regulated by multiple factors, including the brain, hormones, muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and emotions. Problems in any of these factors can result in erectile dysfunction. Excessive stress and deteriorating mental health can also worsen erectile dysfunction. It can also occur due to a combination of physical and psychological issues. Depression, anxiety, low testosterone levels, heart diseases, diabetes, and obesity are common causes of erectile dysfunction.

How Do I Know if I have Erectile Dysfunction?

You will easily come to know when you have erectile dysfunction because, unlike other medical conditions, the symptoms of erectile dysfunction are straightforward. Some sexual problems might be occasional or intermittent and do not necessarily point toward erectile dysfunction. However, you suffer from erectile dysfunction if you have reduced sexual desire and cannot get or maintain an erection firm enough for sex.

Can Erectile Dysfunction Be Cured?

Erectile dysfunction can definitely be cured, but the treatment depends upon the causes. When you visit the doctor, the first thing he will ensure is whether you are getting the correct medications for the health condition you are suffering from. If your erectile dysfunction is due to lifestyle modifications, it can be reversed by addressing the underlying cause. In addition to lifestyle modifications, penis pumps, surgery, exercises, and oral medications also help treat erectile dysfunction. However, all these treatment measures do not cure the underlying medical conditions.

Can I Get Prescription Medication on iCliniq First for Erectile Dysfunction?

You can avail certain prescription drugs for erectile dysfunction via iCliniq First. However, please note that we only prescribe specific drugs, and only for eligible patients. For more information on available drug options or your eligibility for them, consult a doctor at iCliniq First.

Does Over-The-Counter Medication Work for Erectile Dysfunction?

It is difficult to get prescription erectile dysfunction medications over-the-counter, but some herbal supplements can be purchased without a doctor's prescription. However, doctors often dissuade people from using these supplements because nothing has been known about their safety and efficacy. Some readily available over-the-counter medications include L-arginine, Ginseng, and Yohimbe. However, consult your doctor before opting for over-the-counter products, especially if you have any medical condition, are undergoing treatment, or are taking medications or supplements.

What Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Will Work for Me?

The treatment for erectile dysfunction usually begins with taking care of your heart and mental health. The doctor might point out certain factors that increase the risk of erectile dysfunction which can be avoided. You might be given medications, testosterone therapy, penile injections, and a vacuum erection device, depending upon the severity of your condition. In addition to medications and surgery, the doctor might ask you to do the following:

  • Quit smoking.
  • Lose weight.
  • Engage in physical activities.
  • Work on your relationship issues.
  • Limit the consumption of alcohol.
Which Is the Best Injection for Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction can not only be treated with medications or surgery but also with the injection of Alprostadil. It expands the blood vessels and boosts the blood flow to the penis. This injection is only available by prescription and can be directly injected into the penis or placed at the penis tip (suppository). The injection form is more effective than a suppository and has helped more than 80 Percentage of the males to keep their erection firm. The injection usually starts to work in 5 to 20 minutes.

What Is the Best Drug for Treating Erectile Dysfunction?

Oral medications are considered the first line of treatment for erectile dysfunction because these medications help keep the erection firm with minimal side effects. Though, the drugs used for erectile dysfunction work in a similar manner, their chemical structure is entirely different. Sildenafil, Vardenafil, and Tadalafil are some of the most effective drugs because they reverse erectile dysfunction by stimulating the effects of nitric oxide. It is a chemical produced by the body that relaxes the penile muscles and stimulates the blood flow to keep an erection firm.

How to Avoid Erectile Dysfunction on Steroids?

People taking anabolic steroids are at a higher risk of developing erectile dysfunction because steroids reduce testosterone production and reduce the sex drive. The following methods help prevent erectile dysfunction on steroids:

  • Avoid using steroids.
  • Live a healthy life and quit smoking and alcohol consumption.
  • Maintain healthy body weight.
  • Have a healthy and well-balanced diet.
  • Keep your cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels under control.
