For the let’s discuss what are some treatment options if you have Erectile Dysfunction.
The most common Erectile Dysfunction Treatment option is Medicine
There are tablets, such as Viagra and Cialis you can take or inject prior to your sexual contact that can help with ED
They work by increasing blood flow to the penis.
Treatment option 2 is by using a Penile vacuum device. It Works by creating a vacuum, which forces the blood into the penis; a ring is then used to prevent the blood from flowing out from the penis thus maintaining an erection
A more invasive option is by surgical penile implants can be inserted by surgeons
Another Erectile Dysfunction treatment option is by undergoing Electroshockwave therapy or ESWT in short
One of the causes of Erectile Dysfunction is the poor flow of blood into the penis caused by unhealthy blood vessels.
By shooting multiple low-intensity shockwaves into the penis, new and healthy blood vessels develop. This is known as neo-vascularization.
It works by delivering painless low-intensity shock waves into the penis. This stimulates the penis to make new blood vessels. More blood vessels mean better blood flow into the penis and better erections.
Each treatment session lasts about 15 minutes and is completely painless. A patient can resume his normal activities immediately after the treatment.
Usually, 6 to 12 treatment sessions are recommended.
