For ED problem you may consult your primary care doctor or urologist...
It may be helpful for your doctor to check your testosterone levels as a possible cause. If low testosterone is related then testosterone replacement therapy should help.
The common oral ED medicines of Viagra, Levitra and Cialis usually help ED in about 90 percent of cases. If you should be given a typical start dose if say Viagra 50mg then you take that 30 to 60 minutes prior to sex. That one should be effective at least for next 4 or so hours to help you obtain and maintain an erection.
Factors that may affect your circulation may be reviewed. Anything that inhibits good circulation may affect your erectile function. These factors may include smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, taking stimulants. So correcting or improving any such factors may help.
Psychological factors may play a role such as depression or anxiety.
Other treatments beyond the three mentioned above are available and may be preferred by some people.
