Living with Erectile Dysfunction

Reading time: 2 min

This depends on the cause. Erectile dysfunction with a psychological or emotional origin is nearly always cured with sexual therapy, the number of sessions varying according to the complexity of each case.

In the case of erectile dysfunction caused by a hormonal imbalance or a medicine, there are several ways in which the situation can be normalised if the trigger of the erection problem is remedied.

On the other hand, when the problem is vascular or neurological, the majority of cases need to be treated for the rest of the patient’s life. This type of treatment is effective and safe, while the most important point is to tailor a solution to the needs of each patient.
