Sexual Enhancement Treatments
There are many ways to treat sexual dysfunction, including counseling, treatment of other physical problems, mechanical devices, prescription and over-the-counter medications, and dietary supplements. Here is a quick overview of some of these different options.
Sexual DysfunctionThe cause of sexual dysfunction can be physical or psychological. Physical causes include several health conditions, such as heart disease , diabetes, injury, surgery, or hormonal imbalances. Side effects of medications used to treat these conditions or other conditions can also have negative sexual side effects. Psychological causes can include stress , anxiety , marital problems, depression , and previous traumatic sexual experiences. Whether it affects arousal, performance, or climax, sexual dysfunction is a real problem for the men and women who have it. Once the problem is identified, sexual dysfunction may resolve on its own, or it may respond to treatment or resolution of the underlying condition.
Sexual Enhancement DrugsSildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis), or vardenafil (Levitra) may be used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) in men. However, those who take nitrate medication should be aware that taking both nitrates and these sexual enhancement drugs can cause a life-threatening drop in blood pressure.
