Finding the One for You

Almost all ED is treatable. In fact, you may not realize just how many treatment options there are available. All treatments have specific benefits and risks.   Only your doctor can decide which option is most appropriate for you.

Oral Therapy
Vacuum Therapy
Transurethral Therapy
Penile Injection Therapy
Penile Implants
Professional Counselling

Oral Therapy

These are pills that could work regardless of the underlying cause of ED. The man requires sexual stimulation to allow the natural erection process to take place.

Vacuum Therapy

This treatment involves the use of a vacuum constriction device (VCD), the components of which are a vacuum pump, a closed plastic cylinder and a constriction ring. Placing the penis in the cylinder and pumping out the air produces a vacuum which draws blood into the erectile tissues, causing an erection that is then maintained by a constriction band placed at the base of the penis.

Transurethral Therapy

Transurethral therapy involves inserting a suppository delivery system into the urethra of the penis.

Penile Injection Therapy

Penile injection therapy involves injecting a drug with a fine needle directly into the side of the penis prior to attempting intercourse.

Penile Implants

This treatment involves replacing erectile tissue in the penis with a prosthesis. There are two basic types of implants: semi-rigid malleable prosthesis and inflatable (hydraulic) devices with one, two or three components. Both types require irreversible surgery and, for this reason, are generally considered only after other options fail.

Professional Counselling

Psychotherapy and/or behavioural therapy alone may be helpful for some patients in whom no physical cause of ED is detected, or for patients who refuse medical and surgical interventions. Counselling is also often beneficial in combination with other treatments.
