Hi,

There are a number of treatments for male impotency.

However, before starting treatment, the first requirement is investigations since there are a number of causes of impotency which need to be ruled out.

Medicines: Certain medicines can cause male impotency. like pressure medicines, etc.

Lumbar disc lesion: Impotency can be the first sign of a lumbar disc lesion. This is possible specially if you have recurrent back ache.

Neuropathy: Impotency can also be caused due to neuropathy caused by diseases like diabetes.

Cardiovascular diseases: disesases affecting blood flow can also cause this.

Hormonal disorders: Low testosterone.

Alcoholism and substance abuse.

Psychological: Psychological causes of impotency are the commonest cause.

Hence all cases of male impotency should be seen to by a doctor. It can be the first sign of an illness.

There are a number of treatment options for impotency.

There are a number of drugs available. The most well known of course is Sildenafil (Viagra). Besides this, alternative drugs like Tadalafil (Cialis) and Vardenafil (Levitra) are also available. These are the first choice of treatment and one or the other should work for you.

Besides this, other options are:

Penile injections

Urethral applications

Vaccum devices

Vascular surgery

Penile implants.

Prostaglandins and Testosterone supplements are also used.

You should consult a Urologist for this. A Urologist can check up the patient and decide the best treatment option. If necessary, a Urologist can also refer for cognitive behavioral therapy for psychological causes.

There are so many treatment options available, I am sure you will find one best suited for your patient.

I did not ask this question. I am an expert on JA in OBGYN. I am very confused how this happened as my account has been charged for this question?
Doctor: Dr. P. Jyoti, Consultant MD replied 8 years ago


Ok, some mistake somewhere.

I do hope you can get the amount refunded. The amount hasnt come into my account, that would have happened only if you had accepted. Its somewhere in the JA account, you had better talk with the administrators.

I was wondering why a doctor was asking such a question.
