Impotence Causes & Treatments
The good news is most impotence causes can be treated successfully! In more than half of all impotence, the cause is physical - the result of diabetes, a hormone problem, blocked arteries, etc. In other cases, the cause is psychological - the result of stress or depression. Impotence is not a problem you should have to live with, or that will simply go away. It's important to see a doctor
Depending on your diagnosis, your recommended impotence treatment may be surgical. Medical impotence treatments range from simply changing your prescription drugs, hormone replacement therapy, antidepressant therapy, the use of a vacuum erection device, or self-injection therapy to produce erections. Surgical impotence treatment involves the implantation of a penile prosthesis.
