"Popular medications such as Viagra, Spedra, Cialis and Levitra work for most men, but they are not suitable for everyone. Before you can take any of these medications, a doctor (or pharmacist for Viagra Connect) needs to assess whether they are suitable for you." - Dr Louisa Draper

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a repeated inability to get or maintain an erection. Whether it can be cured depends on why you are experiencing it. 

In some cases, treating an underlying cause may help resolve the problem. There are a range of treatments which can help you manage ED and enjoy a normal sex life.

The most important step in treating the condition is to see a doctor to find out what is causing your symptoms.

  • psychological causes such as stress or anxiety
  • medical conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure
  • lifestyle choices such as drinking and smoking
  • injuries, trauma or surgery to your penis or genitals
Your risk of ED increases with age and over 50% of men experience some form of it between the ages of 40 and 70. It is particularly important to see a doctor if you suddenly become unable to maintain an erection or if you feel that your condition worsens.
