Failure to erect: treatments

Erectile dysfunction is not a fatality: effective treatments exist, it is necessary to consult a doctor, or sometimes a specialist psychologist.

Oral treatments work by facilitating the dilation of the vascular tissue. In this area, the results are really interesting. And these drugs are today very often prescribed.

There are four drugs on the market:

  • sildenafil, vardenafil, tadalafil, avanafil.

In medical terms, we are talking about an IPDE5 (Phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor). These treatments can only be obtained on prescription and are not reimbursed by the Health Insurance.

There is also a drug that acts locally, by adminsitration of a few drops of cream in the meatus (hole) of the penis: the alprostadil is up to 20 to 30 minutes. It is only available on prescription, is not reimbursed, and can be stored in the refrigerator.

If a hormonal imbalance is at the origin of these disorders of the erection, an androgenic treatment could be envisaged.

Intracavernous injections are also a possible remedy, in case of failure of oral treatment or contraindication. The patient performs these injections himself which allow him to obtain an erection ten minutes later.

Other solutions

Mechanical type solutions, such as vacuum pumps or penile implants exist; however, they are reserved for exceptional cases, which oral treatments have not been able to improve.

Other times, surgery, with the establishment of a penile prosthesis is the only solution that can be considered.
