What is Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?

Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is when a man cannot get or keep an erection firm enough to have successful sexual intercourse.

What are the symptoms of ED?

Symptoms of ED

You are sometimes or always unable to get a normal erection. Or you can only keep an erection for a very short time. ED can also cause psychological effects such as embarrassment, frustration, depression, and loss of self-esteem and relationship breakdowns. It also effects their partners and loved ones.

What are the causes of ED?

Causes of ED

More than 90% of men suffering from ED have the condition because of a physical problem or disorder such as an injury, disease, operation or substance abuse. For most men, the cause of ED can now be fairly easily identified. Once identified, proper treatment can be recommended to help you return to a satisfying sex life.

Can ED be fixed?

Treatment for ED

ED is not something that you have to put up with or expect as a result of ageing. There are many treatment options available which can be explored with a Urologist, like Dr Love.

Dr Christopher Love, Australia's leading Urological Surgeon, can help you overcome Erectile Dysfunction without medication.

Erectile Dysfunction is nothing to be embarrassed about.

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a very common problem that affects millions of men around the world. Approximately 2 million Australian men suffer from some form of ED.

ED can occur at any age and at any point in a man’s life. The common thought that ED is an “old man’s problem” is wrong, and young men can suffer too.

Most men have experienced difficulty in getting or keeping an erection at one-time in their lives. This is normal and is often related to anxiety or nervousness, having had too much to drink, tiredness or distraction. This does not indicate a problem but could indicate an issue if the difficulties are ongoing.

Should I see a doctor?

ED is not something that you have to put up with – and is by no means an inevitable consequence of ageing. There are many different treatment options for ED giving successful outcomes, including medication and penile implants. ED may also be a sign of other medical problems which may need treatment in their own right, so it is always worth checking with your doctor.

What should I do next?

Solutions are available for this common problem. A consultation with a Urologist who is experienced in evaluating and treating ED is the best starting point, as they will be able to explain the cause of the problem, investigate it correctly, and offer a range of treatments.

Dr Christopher Love specialises in treatment for Erectile Dysfunction. Make an appointment to discuss your personal situation and the options available to you. We do not require a referral from your GP (although it may help reduce the costs of the consultation).

Treatment Options for Erectile Dysfunction

There are various methods for treating Erectile Dysfunction. Dr. Love can discuss all of these options with you in more detail.

All decisions regarding your options for treating ED should be made between you, your partner and your doctor, with consideration given to your individual needs and realistic expectations, and the pros and cons of each treatment option.

Treatment options may include:

  • A Penile Implant procedure, which is the best option in most cases, and is the only way to fix the problem of ED and return the penis to the most normal spontaneous functioning.
  • Lifestyle changes: stop smoking, lose weight, healthier diet, more exercise, control of blood pressure and cholesterol may all help in minimising the risk of ED occurring.
  • Oral medications (PDE5 inhibitors) like Viagra®, Cialis®, Spedra® or Levitra®,
  • Injection therapy: self-injection of medication directly into the penis
  • Penile vacuum pumps
  • New and evolving therapies for ED including shockwave therapy
  • Clinical Trial Treatments.
