Treatment Options for Those Suffering from Erectile Dysfunction
What is Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction is a serious problem for a lot of men, old and young. Around 15 to 20 million men are effected physically and psychologically by erectile dysfunction. It can be caused by a variety of things, including diabetes, MS, vascular issues, and even stress.
Common Available Treatments
For years, those suffering from erectile dysfunction have been offered a variety of treatment options, including:
- Lifestyle Change
- Sex Therapy
- Impotence Drugs
- Penile Implants
- Natural Supplements
Now there are good and bad aspects of each option. For example, surgery can be risky but if successful can improve the blood flow to the penis. Drugs can have the same affect, but many men find them ineffective. With natural supplements, it’s difficult to know what you are getting.
Among all of these erectile dysfunction treatment options, we recommend vacuum therapy. A vacuum constriction device, or VCD, have been proven effective with 90% per manufacturer clinical trials. WebMD states:
Vacuum constriction devices are safe and can be used by patients with ED caused by many conditions, including:
- Poor blood flow to the penis
- Surgery for prostate or colon cancer
- Psychological issues such as anxiety or depression
We have seen that vacuum erection devices are the safest, most reliable treatment option for erectile dysfunction. The American Urological Association (AUA) also recognizes vacuum therapy as the safest and least expensive treatment available.
