Treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED)

Almost half of the men above the age of 50 will have varying degrees of ED; however ED can affect any age group. ED is associated with other health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. Several lines of therapy are available including pills, injections and surgery. It is observed that many men who are undergoing fertility treatment with their partners develop ED, however this is a transient form due to the performance anxiety of having intercourse at certain periods or the pressure of having to provide a sample at a particular time.
