Whether erectile dysfunction (ED) can be cured depends on what’s causing it. If the problem is fixable then it’s possible to make a full recovery. For example, if your ED is due to anxiety, you can expect to see a change in your symptoms as your mental health improves.  

Your GP can help you identify the cause of your erectile dysfunction, and in the meantime, medication like Viagra (sildenafil) can be used to treat the ongoing symptoms.
