Sex drugs for men - which ones help?
There are licensed drugs available which have been proven to help men with certain forms of sexual dysfunction. 1 in 10 men will have a problem with sexual performance (such as erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation) throughout their lifetime.
Before seeking out medication to treat your problem, you first need to work out what is causing it. If the cause is psychological, physical treatments may not work, and vice versa. Visit your GP to discuss your medical history, lifestyle choices and relationships in order to work out what the best treatment for you will be.
For Erectile Dysfunction (ED):
If you feel that you suffer from erectile dysfunction, and this is preventing you from have a full and satisfying sex life, you should discuss this with your doctor. Your doctor may feel it is appropriate to prescribe you with medication to help ED such as sildenafil or Viagra.
For Ejaculation Problems:
Problems with ejaculation (premature or delayed) are often linked to psychological factors such as: anxiety, historical sexual behaviours or relationship problems. You should have a discussion with your GP. If you feel uncomfortable with them, a registered online doctor, who can advise you on what might work best for you in terms of treatments or therapies.
It’s also good to be aware of products that won’t work. There is no general cure for erectile dysfunction, so be wary of any pills advertising a ‘quick fix’ or ‘breakthrough cure’ as these are bogus. Products advertised as ‘all natural’ or ‘herbal’ supplements have also not been proven to help improve problems with sexual dysfunction
