I often receive emails from the readers of my asking me for advice on how to best treat their erectile dysfunction problems. My answer to them is always the same: there isn’t one “best” way to treat ED, and it all depends on you particular situation, which has to be professionally evaluated by a qualified physician.
What many men are unaware is the fact that there is more than one type of erectile dysfunction and many potential reasons why a man may experience difficulty getting or maintaining an erection. So naturally, there can’t be a “one-size-fits-all” solution to erectile dysfunction.
Doctors usually classify erectile dysfunction in two major groups: lifelong and acquired ED. Unfortunately, there are men who have never in their lives been able to maintain an erection long enough for successful sexual intercourse. Those men are diagnosed with lifelong ED. Acquired ED, on the other hand, affects men who have previously been able to have successful sexual intercourse, but are currently unable to do so.
There also exist many reasons why men can become affected by erectile dysfunction, including a number of medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, endocrine issues, and prostate surgery. Besides medical conditions, a number of psychological factors can cause or greatly contribute to ED, including work-related stress, depression, and other issues.
Moreover, such things as unhealthy diet, smoking, alcohol, and many prescription medications may contribute to erectile dysfunction symptoms.
With so many factors at play, it’s really impossible to recommend one “best” treatment without proper testing and evaluation. Erectile dysfunction is a serious medical condition that needs to be approached individually based on the patient’s specific history. This is the approach we take at NuMale Medical Center, and this is what I recommend to all of my readers.
Good luck and stay healthy!
