Pills Aren’t Working for Your ED? Explore These Effective Therapies

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a condition that occurs when a man has trouble achieving or maintaining an erection firm enough for successful sexual intercourse. It’s very common, especially as men get older. Some degree of erectile dysfunction affects 50% of men in their 50s and as many as 70% in their 70s.

Pills such as Viagra®, Cialis, and Levitra are frequent go-to treatments for ED. However, pills don’t work for everyone.

When pills don’t deliver the outcome you’re looking for, you may see better results with other types of treatments. Here at Male Method, our erectile dysfunction specialists offer a range of innovative approaches to resolving ED. Here’s what you need to know.

About ED

ED may be an occasional occurrence due to temporary stress or worry. Or it may occur in connection with other factors, such as:

Treating ED

When you meet with your doctor at The Male Method, the first step is understanding what may be causing your ED. Sometimes lifestyle changes such as weight loss, relaxation strategies, or medication adjustments can help.

It’s important to tell your doctor which medications you take, because many can contribute to ED. These include over-the-counter and prescription medications, as well as recreational drugs.

When indicated, your doctor may recommend ED pills. However, when oral medications aren’t the right approach for you, your doctor may suggest one of the following therapies:

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT)

ESWT is a gentle, painless, non-invasive procedure that sends sound waves to various parts of your penis via a specially designed probe.

ESWT uses energy from the waves to improve blood flow to your genital region by triggering the formation of new blood vessels.

This therapy targets the physical processes involved in achieving or maintaining an erection. After successful ESWT treatment, men can achieve longer, firmer erections when they want them.

TriMix ICI

TriMix ICI is a mixture of three medications that you inject into the base of the penis before sex. It causes only minimal discomfort because the injector is very small, and our professional staff teaches you how to use the auto-injector so you can give yourself the medication at home.

This therapy helps improve blood flow and facilitate longer, firmer erections. It also helps reduce premature ejaculations.
