Studies have shown that for men with stress-related ED, when the partner is involved in the therapy, the problem is resolved 50%–70% of the time. When the man must go through counselling alone, the results are less successful. Psychosexual counselling is unlikely to be effective if a man drops out of treatment after just one or two sessions.44 .
The earlier you get a diagnosis of ED, the sooner you can start on treatments that can help your symptoms.
Vacuum devices for ED, also called pumps, offer an alternative to medication. You’ll place your penis inside a cylinder and use a pump to draw the air out. This creates a partial vacuum around your penis, which causes it to fill with blood and leads to an erection. You’ll wear an elastic band around the base of your penis to keep the erection while you have sex.

Get the painless, non-invasive, drug-free, safe, and effective erectile dysfunction treatment. The latest and most advanced shock wave therapy machine from Germany is now available at the Institute of Andrology and Sexual Health (IASH), Jaipur. Low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy (Li-ESWT) has been proposed as a new non-invasive treatment for erectile dysfunction, causing blood vessels to carry blood to the penis.

You are not alone 50% of men in their 50s are affected by ED symptoms (University of Wisconsin Health, 2019). Sometimes a man becomes nervous during sex, or perhaps he’s had too many drinks beforehand. While this may affect his sexual performance, it doesn’t necessarily mean a man has ED.
When you do your Kegels, try not to contract the muscles in your pelvis or thighs. The goal is to focus your attention on contracting the pelvic floor muscles.
Another potential new treatment consists of penile low-intensity shock wave lithotripsy. This consists of 1500 shocks twice a week for 3–6 weeks. The purpose is to stimulate neovascularisation to the corporal bodies with improvement in penile blood flow and endothelial function. The use of low-intensity shock wave lithotripsy may convert PDE5 inhibitor non-responders to responders.47

Diabetes mellitus, smoking, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure are all risk factors for oxidative stress. These conditions are some of the most common causes of E.D. (Zhang et al., 2011). Antioxidants decrease metabolic stress and reduce the risk of blood vessel damage.
Watts and coworkers, in their review article, make several points about this ED/CAD nexus. Endothelial dysfunction is present in both CVD and ED, and is linked through the NO mechanism. The authors note that PDE5 inhibitors improve endothelial function and have a salutary effect on both CVD and ED. Both ED and cardiac disease respond to modifications in lifestyle as well as pharmacologic manipulation. These authors also report that the presence of ED gives the clinician an opportunity to assess CVD and prevention as well.20
