Occasional failure to achieve an erection can occur for a variety of reasons. Failure to achieve an erection less than 20% of the time is not unusual and typically does not warrant treatment. However, a failure to achieve an erection more than 50% of the time is indicative of a problem than may cause stress, relationship problems, and self-confidence issues and requires medical attention.
Traditional Treatment Options & Limitations
For most men facing ED, the first course of treatment prescribed by a doctor is usually a course of PDE5 inhibitors.
What are PDE5 Inhibitors?
Following sexual stimulation, PDE5 inhibitors increase blood flow to the penis, causing an erection. Brand names include Viagra, Cialis and Levitra.
Just as stem cells are being used to heal and treat a variety of neurological and orthopedic conditions, urologists have also been using adult stem cell therapy to treat erectile dysfunction for patients who have been unresponsive to traditional ED treatment.
