What is ED?

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get an erection or stay hard long enough for sex. It is very common to experience occasional problems during sex. 1 in 2 men will experience ED at some point in their lives. Fortunately, it is easy to treat. Connect with one of our trusted medical professionals to find the best treatment plan that works for you.


Can it be treated?

Oral medications are effective in treating ED in most men. These medications help relax your muscles and increase the blood flow to your penis which makes it easier to get and maintain an erection.

Why do men experience ED?

Several factors can contribute to the condition, including both emotional and physical disorders. Understanding the most common causes can help you identify why you may be experiencing the condition. The main factors that contribute to erectile dysfunction include;

  • Neurological and nerve disorders, which affect the brain’s ability to communicate with the reproductive system, decreasing sexual stimulation to the penis.

  • Cardiac-related conditions, which affects the heart’s ability to pump blood, causing impotence. Without enough blood flow to the penis, achieving an erection will be difficult.

  • Taking certain medications, this restricts the blood flow to specific areas of the body which can lead to lack of blood flow decreasing the ability to maintain an erection.

  • Lifestyle factors and emotional disorders are a strong factor in ED as achieving an erection involves a psychological excitement phase, and if you have emotional disorders it can affect your ability to become sexually aroused.

According to the American Urological Association, oral PDE-5 inhibitors should be offered as the “first line of therapy for erectile dysfunction.” So that’s what physicians YourMD.ca use to treat ED. The most common PDE-5 oral medications they prescribe are: •Sildenafil (Viagra) •Tadalafil (Cialis)

Viagra’s FDA approved prescribing information claims that  “82% of patients reported an improvement in their erections.” Other PDE-5 inhibitors (Cialis, Levitra) showed similar results.


Oral ED medication is generally considered extremely effective and studies show it works on the majority of men. But ED medication doesn’t work for everyone. It’s important to note that everyone’s reaction to a medication is unique.

Oral ED medications are extremely effective, but they don’t work for everyone. Other treatment options for ED include lifestyle improvements (like exercise, diet, quitting smoking, and limiting alcohol use), surgery, penile vacuum pumps, and other ED medications. Every treatment comes with risks and benefits that you should fully understand before moving forward with any treatment plan.
