The causes of erectile dysfunction are diverse. The earlier the disorder is treated, the greater the chance of recovery. Which treatment option makes sense depends on the triggering factors.
If there is an erectile dysfunction, it is usually treated with medication. For example, phosphodiesterase inhibitors can be used to ensure improved blood flow to the penis.
Various medications can also chemically increase the ability to have an erection. The frequently used active ingredients include Tadalafil or Sildenafil.
They are usually taken just before intercourse, but not more than once every 24 hours.
There is also the possibility of auto-injection treatment for patients of erectile dysfunction. The person concerned injects the drug into the erectile tissue of the penis shortly before sexual intercourse. All medications for erectile dysfunction require a prescription in Kenya.
Erectile dysfunction treatment: When medication doesn’t help
In addition to drug therapy options, there are also mechanical aids, such as special vacuum pumps, which can be used to create an erection. If the therapy options mentioned do not lead to the desired success, surgery may be an option. Because the cavernous bodies have to be removed when inserting a penile prosthesis, these surgical measures are only taken when all other treatment approaches have failed.
