Male sexual impotence or erectile dysfunction is the persistent inability to achieve or maintain an erection that allows a satisfactory sexual relationship. It must be differentiated from other sexual problems, such as lack of sexual desire, alterations of ejaculation or disorders of orgasm.

Impotence problems or erectile dysfunction is a frequent disease that if left untreated can affect relationships with the couple, the family, the work and social environment. All men can have problems getting an erection in their life, especially if they are tired, have stress, a serious illness or are under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

  1. Pills

The pills for the treatment of impotence are Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra. These pills work by inhibiting certain enzymes that are responsible for the release of blood from the penis. So a greater flow of blood flows to the penis and less blood flows out.

  1. Injections

Before the arrival of erection pills, erectile dysfunction in some cases was treated with injections. Even now they can be used, for example, when the erection pills do not achieve the desired effect. With an injection, the same active ingredient as that of the pills is injected directly into the penis. The injection can be a little scary, but with the right instructions and practice, it will be easier.

  1. Suppositories

For men who do not want to use the injections and do not want to take pills, there are suppositories that contain the same active ingredient as the previous methods. In this method, a thin suppository is inserted into the urethra.

The advantage of the suppository, with respect to pills and injections, is that the suppository can be used during sexual activity and works in the short term. The other two methods must be applied in advance, which eliminates spontaneity.
