Men have reported cases of erectile dysfunction at different stages of their lives. It varies in severity, so it is common for medical professionals to provide different treatment methods. A common question most people ask is: Can erectile dysfunction be corrected?

Erectile dysfunction affects many individuals but is common in those of older ages. Men in different age groups suffer from this condition for various reasons. With younger men, erectile dysfunction results from excessive drinking, stress, anxiety, and obesity.

Atherosclerosis and diabetes are the most common causes of erectile dysfunction in older individuals. Atherosclerosis results from the hardening of the arteries, which block blood flow.

The following are some of the approaches used to correct erectile dysfunction.

Lifestyle Adjustments

Obesity is one of the most common causes of erectile dysfunction in men of all ages. Some changes people make to correct obesity include living an active lifestyle and reducing food portions. Exercising can reduce the chances of adding weight and eating a well-balanced diet also goes a long way in fixing erectile dysfunction.

Use Of Medications

Men can take medication to aid in the correction of erectile dysfunction. Some common medications for this condition include:

  • Avanafil
  • Sildenafil
  • Tadalafil
  • Vardenafil

Men can also take the medication using injections or suppositories. The medication dissolves, gets into the body, and assists the man in getting an erection. Please note that excessive use of erectile dysfunction medication can lead to high blood pressure and heart attack.

Apart from treating the condition, suppositories can also treat:

  • Nausea
  • Anxiety
  • Constipation
  • Allergies

When using suppositories, patients should adhere to strict hygiene standards. Hygiene helps avoid infections that could develop during medication.

Medical Procedures

In severe cases of erectile dysfunction, surgery can correct the condition. The surgery involves placing implants in the penis and using vascular reconstruction surgery to correct it. Although implants are effective in correcting erectile dysfunction, they can lead to some complications. One of the most common disadvantages of using implants is the predisposition to urinary infections.
