What do you do if the ED pills don’t work is not a question that men want to think about. Still, for many it is necessary. Don’t give up hope of having a normal sex life if pills are not an option for you because of other health issues. You are not necessarily condemned to a sexless life due to impotence or premature ejaculation.
If the medicines aren’t right for you, your doctor could suggest you try using a penis vacuum pump device, or they could recommend surgery. Your doctor may send you to an urologist to discuss these options.
Some medications may be injected directly into the penis or you may insert the drug as a small suppository into the penis when desiring to have sex. Both allow for blood flow to the penis helping create an erection. A penis vacuum pump will help to increase blood flow also but the effects are not as long lasting although less costly than the medication, but also requires the use of a tension ring to maintain the erection.
A penile implant may be surgically placed to allow you to perform once again. Talking to you physician and learning all the options, with their benefits, costs and even possible side-effects will help you make the decision that is best for you and your partner. A penile implant is a small device placed on both sides of the penis to allow erection to occur as often as desired by inflation of the device.
Another form of surgery could be vascular surgery to unblock vessels in the penis or pelvic area. Although mostly successful, the long term effects are not certain.
If depression, stress or relationship problems are the cause then your doctor may suggest psychological counseling or even sex therapy for both you and your partner. The reason for recommending for both should be evident. There is no satisfaction or solution to a problem if both parties involved do not work together for the solution.
