Erectile Dysfunction Q & A

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) means you struggle to get an erection when you want to have sex or find it difficult to maintain an erection during intercourse.

The odd problem with your erections is likely to result from stress, fatigue, illness, or having a hangover after drinking excessively. If you're having erectile dysfunction issues for a month or more or in every 1 in 4 attempts to have sex, you should see Dr. McFarland to find out why.

ED is a problem that men often find highly distressing, but effective treatments are available to help you overcome your condition.

What causes erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction could be due to a range of causes, including:

  • Low testosterone
  • Peyronie's disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Diabetes
  • Drug abuse
  • Penis or prostate gland injuries
  • Stress
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Low self-esteem

If you're suffering from ED, it's important to seek help, as the right treatment could resolve the issue for you. On the other hand, continuing to worry about your sexual performance is likely to make matters worse.

How is erectile dysfunction treated?

The treatment you need for ED might vary depending on the cause of your problem. Managing conditions like diabetes properly, making changes to your diet to improve your cardiovascular health, and undergoing counseling for mental health and emotional issues could all be beneficial.

There are also treatments you can use to help you get an erection, such as the well-known oral medication sildenafil (Viagra®). Dr. McFarland offers an alternative solution in the form of Trimix injections.

How do Trimix injections help with erectile dysfunction?

Trimix injections contain three drugs (papaverine, alprostadil, and phentolamine) that help to improve blood flow to your penis.

They do this by relaxing the smooth muscles and enabling the blood vessels to dilate, allowing more blood to fill your penis. Trimix injections also encourage better blood flow around your body to increase the amount of blood available for your erection.

Dr. McFarland shows you how to give yourself the injections before having sex. They take only a few minutes to work and typically give you better, firmer erections that last longer.
