When To Call A Professional

You should speak to your doctor if you have trouble getting or keeping an erection over three months or more. Because of embarrassment or shame, many men with impotence don't talk to their doctors. They hope that the problem will go away on its own. Although impotence caused by psychological factors may get better on its own, treatment is needed if the problem is caused by a physical factor.


In general, the outlook for men with impotence is excellent. Although most cases of impotence have medical causes that cannot be cured, many treatment options will restore sexual function. Several causes of impotence can be cured, including impotence caused by psychological problems, hormonal disorders and traumatic injury to the penile arteries.
