Doctor

A:   Erection problems may cause significant emotional disturbance. Erectile difficulty is the frequent or consistent inability to get or sustain an erection of the penis sufficient to engage in sexual intercourse. A wide range of diseases, medications, injuries, and psychological problems can cause erectile difficulties. If the ED continues for more than a few weeks you should see a doctor. Your doctor will assess the general state of health, because ED may be a sign of a more serious health condition, such as heart disease, diabetes, hypertension or something else. There are various treatment options available for Erectile Dysfunction and include medication : like Sildenafil (Viagra), Vardenafil, Constriction devices (penile tourniquets), Intracavernosal Injections, Vacuum devices and and Surgical treatment.
