Erectile Dysfunction

EDErectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get, or keep, an erection. When you are aroused, nerve signals are sent to the base of the penis, which relaxes the arteries and allows more blood to flow in – this causes it to expand and harden. Anything affecting nerve transition, or blood flow, can prevent the penis from becoming, and staying, hard.  

Without a firm erection, satisfactory sex is not possible, and though it’s considered by some to be too embarrassing to talk about, most men will suffer from this at some point in their life. In fact, it’s incredibly common in men over 40. But it’s not just confined to older generations, and lots of younger men are also grappling with the same problem.

Often erectile dysfunction is caused by a temporary problem, and this is usually psychological. Stress, anxiety, and depression can all cause erectile dysfunction, but you should see a return to normal when your mental wellbeing starts to improve. In the short-term, medication, such as sildenafil Viagra, can help you get back on track. 

There are lots of other physical causes of erectile dysfunction, including: 

  • obesity and being overweight 
  • diabetes 
  • heart problems, including heart disease 
  • high blood pressure, including hypertension 
  • injuries (these can affect you both mentally and physically) 
  • cancer or surgery affecting the penis 
  • high cholesterol 
  • long-term substance abuse 
  • conditions that affect the nervous system 

These can be long-term or permanent problems, but often, as in the case of obesity or high cholesterol, they can be remedied with simple lifestyle changes. 

The biggest risk factor in men is age, and the likelihood of suffering from erectile dysfunction increases from the age of 40 upwards. It will affect most men at some point in their life, but this much-stigmatised problem is often kept quiet.

Erectile dysfunction tablets work by increasing blood flow to the penis to help maintain an erection. This is done by optimising the chemical (cGMP) responsible for relaxing the arteries in the penis and increasing blood flow to the area. ED treatment medications, like Viagra, stop anything which might inhibit the chemical from working properly, such as the enzyme known as PDE5. You might hear this group of tablets, referred to as PDE5 inhibitors. Typically ED tablets start working within 30 to 60 minutes of digestion.

It’s important to remember, that ED medication won’t work if you are not aroused, there still needs to be some sexual stimulation, either physical or emotional. Likewise, once you’ve ejaculated, the tablets will stop working, and you will lose your erection.

Not everyone is suitable to take erectile dysfunction tablets, so as part of the buying process, we’ll check to make sure that you’ve chosen the right course of treatment. If you suffer from any of the following health problems, let your pharmacist know. 

  • Chest pains 
  • Angina or other cardiovascular disease 
  • Severe liver problems 
  • Low blood pressure
  • A recent stroke

It’s important to note that ED treatments are not suitable for women. 

If you can’t take erectile dysfunction tablets, there are alternatives. Making lifestyle changes like quitting smoking or cutting down on your alcohol intake can help, but your GP might also suggest other remedies, such as a vacuum pump, or counselling to deal with any underlying psychological problems that could be contributing.
