ED Treatments: Which Ones Work Best?

If you’re looking for a solution for erectile dysfunction, then you’ve probably stumbled upon quite a few different options.

The question is, how well do erectile dysfunction treatments work? Which one is the right choice for you? Let’s take a closer look.

Prescription Drugs

You’ve seen the commercials: Always featuring happy, confident men in romantic situations, they promise an end to erectile dysfunction.

At the same time, they warn of potential side effects ranging from relatively minor issues like flushing, indigestion, and headaches to major problems including hearing loss, visual abnormalities, stroke, heart attack, and even death.

The good news is that ED prescriptions do work, but they come with quite a few drawbacks:

• Expensive (average $1200 / year)

• Some reduce spontaneity

• May lose effectiveness over time

• Potentially serious side effects

ED Injections

Not needle-shy? FDA-approved penile injection therapy produces an erection within about five to ten minutes, and on a case-by-case basis, that erection can last for 30 to 60 minutes, or until you orgasm.

You can use these injections up to 12 times per month once you’re comfortable with the process. As with many other treatments for erectile dysfunction, injections come with some unpleasant side effects.

• Expensive (average $1100 / year)

• Discomfort or pain

• Bruising

• Scars

• Priapism (a painful erection lasting longer than 4 hours and requiring emergency medical

treatment)

• Expensive

• Not spontaneous

If you want to try injections for erectile dysfunction, be absolutely sure that you get a prescription rather than shopping from shady online companies.

Non-prescription ED injections can result in tissue death and emergency surgery that might even include penile amputation.

ED Elixir

You’re wise to worry about side effects. ED Elixir is an erectile dysfunction remedy that works well for

most men, and that has no side effects whatsoever. Like quite a few other ED treatments, it is relatively new to the market – and so far, it has helped more than 16,000 men achieve sustained natural erections without prescription drugs.

The program involves a customizable supplement that you make using easily obtainable ingredients, along with recommended lifestyle changes and a strong focus on eliminating the psychological stumbling blocks that typically accompany erectile dysfunction.

• Very inexpensive ($37)

• 60-day money back guarantee

• High success rate

• No harmful or painful side effects

• Completely spontaneous, natural sex

• Many users notice added benefits such as more energy and better focus

Penis Pumps

A penis pump features a hollow tube that fits around your penis, along with a constriction ring that is fitted around the base of the penis if the user is able to achieve an erection. Some men successfully use penis pumps (either battery powered or hand powered) but many others find that they just don’t work.

Side effects include:

• Expensive ($300 on average)

• Redness

• Bruising

• Pain

• Lack of spontaneity

• Numbness

• Internal bleeding

Penile Implants

Committed? Interested in surgery? If so, a penile implant might be right for you. These devices work fairly well, but they are expensive and it’s likely that your insurance company will deny your claim if it decides that penis implant surgery is elective.

There are a few different types of penile implants including inflatable pumps and malleable rods. Inflatable pumps tend to leave users happiest and mostcomfortable.

Drawbacks include:

• Expensive (Up to $20,000)

• Might not be covered by insurance

• Long recovery time

• Potential for lasting pain / discomfort

Only you know which ED treatment will work best for you. Most men find that it’s best to choose the least invasive option as well as the option with the lowest risk of side effects.
