When a man suffers from consistenterection problems, leading to difficulties in sexual intercourse, the problem is called erectile dysfunction (ED). Out of every 5 persons, one suffers from this problem and according to research, this problem starts increasing with age. While there are different forms of male sexual dysfunctions, ED specifically refers to problems in achieving or maintaining an erection. While those suffering from ED come with a healthy libido, the body fails to respond.
An urologist can study the male genital problems and suggest the cause and treatment of the disease. Meanwhile, the patient is also given the erectile dysfunction treatment if he suffers from the following symptoms:
*Too soft erections for sexual intercourse
* Too brief erections for sexual intercourse
*Inability to achieve erections
There are different erectile dysfunction treatments available – one of them being penis implants.
Those suffering from persistent ED can opt for penile implant and restore their sexual function. In this process, doctors use an inflatable implant, which has two cylinders. These are surgically placed inside the penis. At a time when an erection is desired, the man uses the pump to get the cylinders inflated with pressurized fluid. There is yet another option that is called malleable implant. It bolsters erections with surgically implanted rods.
There are many causes of erection problems that include physical challenges such as nerve injury or loss of blood supply to the penis. Diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, anxiety, and depression can also add more to this problem.
