Accredited By:

Whether you are single or in a relationship, it can be extremely distressing when your body doesn’t function as it should. For men who have erectile dysfunction (ED), approaching their GP about erectile dysfunction treatments may be uncomfortable and embarrassing.

Many men feel they are wasting their doctor’s time or won’t be taken seriously. At Harley Street MD, when you come for a consultation to discuss erectile dysfunction at our London clinic, we understand this. We will always treat this issue seriously and listen to you to ensure you feel comfortable and at ease.

What Is Erectile Dysfunction?

Occasionally having difficulties getting and, or maintaining an erection is typically nothing to worry about. Still, if this becomes an ongoing problem and it starts to have a detrimental impact on your life, we provide erectile dysfunction treatments in London that can help.

If we briefly look at penile erection, it’s a physiological process in which the penis gets engorged with blood, typically in reaction to sexual excitement, but occasionally at random.

Experiencing erectile dysfunction means one of the following:

  • Not being able to become erect
  • The inability to maintain an erection long enough to ejaculate or enjoy penetrative intercourse.

Regardless of what’s wrong, you might be capable of experiencing an erection at different moments, like after waking in the morning.

What Is the Cause of Erectile Dysfunction?

Many men with ED have underlying health problems like high blood pressure, insomnia, obesity, high cholesterol, diabetes, or a heart condition. Other possible causes include vascular diseases, neurological disorders, and low testosterone levels.

Psychological factors such as stress, anxiety, and depression, as well as lifestyle choices such as smoking, drinking, and certain medications, can also cause ED. Often, a combination of reasons is attributed to this problem.

Whatever the cause for your lack of erection, it is essential first to eliminate any physical reasons and take control of your health and well-being. Resolving the cause of erectile dysfunction (ED) and finding the right erectile dysfunction treatments generally requires a holistic approach. This may require long-term lifestyle changes, which have the added benefit of improving the quality of your life and potential life span.

How Common Is Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?

A review of studies on erectile dysfunction, which was published in the BJU International Journal of Urology, indicated that as many as one in five men in the UK have erectile dysfunction (ED). The research additionally linked men who experienced ED to a higher probability of cardiovascular disease, dementia, and premature death.

If erectile dysfunction (ED) has been affecting you for six months or more, it’s time to stop dismissing it as insignificant. Even if it is a relatively new issue, if you are concerned, checking that there are no underlying medical conditions is still a very sensible thing to do. Once all other causes are ruled out, the most appropriate erectile dysfunction treatments can be found for you.

Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction in London

Our job is to understand the possible causes and give you real solutions to treat your erectile dysfunction. We often get asked to prescribe medications that will cure erection problems. While there are medications that we can and will prescribe for you if appropriate, we would also recommend screening for low testosterone.

Subsequently, if you are found to have low testosterone levels, you might want to consider testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). This could resolve your erectile dysfunction and provide many other health benefits.

We can also offer you a comprehensive and thorough screening for sexually transmitted infections.

Following an in-depth consultation and physical examination, our doctors can prescribe a choice of medications for erectile dysfunction in the form of:

How to Improve Erectile Dysfunction Naturally

Steps you can take to improve your ability to have or maintain an erection without erectile dysfunction treatments involve medication. Below are the three top priorities that can help you to improve your health, well-being, and erections. These should be implemented before moving to medications.

Physical Health and Lifestyle Changes

This is the best place to start if you have ED because you control how you live your life. If you know that you don’t take the best care of yourself, it’s time to consider a lifestyle overhaul. Regular exercise and a healthy diet are your first steps to improved physical and sexual health.

Smoking, abusing both prescription and illicit drugs, or consuming more than the recommended units of alcohol regularly, either daily or weekly, is likely to negatively impact your ability to get or maintain an erection. At our clinic in London, all ages of men are experiencing ED as a result of poor lifestyle habits. Although you are probably aware of where you are going wrong, seeking a nutritionist or personal trainer’s guidance could help you to make a change.

Improving Mental Health

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is often a psychological problem instead of a physical one. Exercise and meditation may be especially beneficial if you are struggling with symptoms of anxiety or depression. You might also want to consider speaking with a counsellor before considering erectile dysfunction treatments. Long-term stress, depression, and other mental health disorders may all contribute to erectile dysfunction (ED).

There are various ways to go about this, and many counsellors will provide virtual or telephone appointments if you would rather not speak to someone in person. You can locate a qualified counsellor through the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) online directory.

In almost all cases at Harley Street MD, our qualified doctors will be able to determine the likely cause of your erectile dysfunction and help you find the best solution. On some occasions, you may need to see a specialist urologist. If this is required, we can provide you with a referral.
Erectile dysfunction is widespread for men over the age of 50. Around one in four men will suffer from it at some point over this age. Erectile dysfunction can also affect men younger than 50 and is a medical condition that can, in most circumstances, be successfully resolved with erectile dysfunction treatments.
This will depend on the cause of your erectile dysfunction. If you require testosterone replacement therapy for low testosterone levels, then this can begin to work within a couple of weeks.
