You Don't Have to Put Up With ED: Learn Your Solution Options

We know, we know. It's frustrating when your intimate moments don’t go as planned (or happen at all). The good news is there are more solutions than ever before. With a little bit of knowledge and a visit to Dr. Pax Emmanuel at Peerless Medical Concierge, erectile dysfunction (ED) doesn't have to control your life.

What you need to know about ED

The inability to get or keep an erection can be a sign of a physical problem, a psychological problem, or both. Some medical conditions can cause ED. Such as heart disease, obesity, low testosterone, and diabetes. Dr. Emmanuel will use physical exams and detailed conversation to determine your unique circumstance. And ensure your diagnosis is accurate.

The most common solutions for ED

Once you have a clean bill of health, you can concentrate on your ED. Here are some of your options:


Known as “the little blue pill,” Viagra® helps you get an erection. It takes about 30 minutes to kick in and lasts three to five hours. Everyone responds differently to Viagra® and the side effects vary. Some experience headaches, back pain, and nausea. Some experience no side effects at all. Dr. Emmanuel will go over side effects with you, before prescribing.

Injections for ED

Alprostadil is another way to overcome ED. It's an injected medication that increases the blood flow to your penis. Which gives you an erection within 10 to 30 minutes. You can even administer this self-injectable drug in the privacy of your own home.


Do you have ED? Or do you simply want bigger, firmer erections? Consider the Priapus Shot (P-Shot®).

Your doctor takes a small amount of blood from your arm. Runs it through a centrifuge to separate the growth factors from the stem cells. And then injects that platelet-rich plasma into your penis.

Did you read that and cross your legs? Fear not! It's a quick and pain-free process that'll stimulate new tissue growth and enhance your sexual performance.

Penile implants

Penile implants aren't recommended as the first course of action. But they can help when medication doesn't work. There are two implant options. Semirigid (permanently firm and moveable) or inflatable (manually pumped to inflate and deflate). Both last about 10 years.

Keep in mind, this is a surgical option. Make sure you talk to your doctor about all the benefits and risks involved.

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy

Do needles and pills turn you off? Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) might be more your style. This non-invasive, nonsurgical treatment uses shock waves to create new blood vessels. And increases blood flow to your penis.

The treatment only takes about half an hour but can last up to three years. The therapy restores your natural erectile function without any side effects.
