Erectile Dysfunction


urology-erectileErectile dysfunction (impotence) is the inability to get and keep an erection firm enough for sex.

Having erection trouble from time to time isn’t necessarily a cause for concern. If erectile dysfunction is an ongoing issue, however, it can cause stress, affect your self-confidence and contribute to relationship problems. Problems getting or keeping an erection can also be a sign of an underlying health condition that needs treatment and a risk factor for heart disease.

What are the early signs of erectile dysfunction?

  • Difficulty getting an erection.
  • Softer erections.
  • Erections that don’t last long enough for “satisfactory” sex.
  • Change in the angle of your erection.
  • Less girthy erections.
  • Reduced penile sensitivity.

What is the fastest way to cure erectile dysfunction?

Include physical activity in your daily routine. Exercise can help with underlying conditions that play a part in erectile dysfunction in a number of ways, including reducing stress, helping you lose weight and increasing blood flow

What is Penile Prosthesis?

A penile prosthesis is another treatment option for men with erectile dysfunction. These devices are either malleable (bendable) or inflatable. The simplest type of prosthesis consists of a pair of malleable rods surgically implanted within the erection chambers of the penis.
