Erectile dysfunction: 10 questions to ask your GP

  1. Does my erectile dysfunction stem from an underlying health condition?
  2. Could any of my medicines or my use of alcohol be causing this problem or making it worse?
  3. If so, can I safely change my medicines or the amount I take?
  4. Could stress or other psychological problems be contributing to my erection difficulties?
  5. Should I see a counsellor, a sex therapist or a psychiatrist?
  6. Could a medication work for me?
  7. If there is a recommended medication, how can I take it safely, and what side effects should I look for? If not, is there another treatment that may be an option for me?
  8. How much improvement can I expect?
  9. Am I a good candidate for surgery? If so, what are the procedures and what are the downsides?
  10. Could vacuum devices or implants help? What are the pluses and minuses of these options?
