    What is erectile dysfunction?

    Sometimes known as impotence, erectile dysfunction is when a man has persistent problems getting and sustaining an erection. Sometimes, this may be: 

    • difficulty getting hard enough for sex
    • or not staying hard for long enough for sex to happen.

    How long it needs to be happening for it to be medically defined as ED is a subject pretty open to discussion. There’s actually a scale called The International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) which gives men an ED ‘score’, based on their erection habits over the previous month. 

    Normally, a clinician will be able to tell if you need treatment by asking you a few questions about your symptoms and general health.

    Who gets ED?

    An estimated 1 in 5 men over 40 in Australia (so it’s quite common). But you can get erectile dysfunction at any age.

    You’ve probably seen the TV commercials for ED medication. Older men strolling with their partners across a sunset beach. These ads target men in this age group, and it figures. Because as men get older, they’re more likely to develop health problems like high blood pressure or poor circulation. And these conditions can make it harder to get an erection.

    But ED affects young men too. As well as the physical side of it, there’s the psychological side. In a new relationship, you may feel pressure to satisfy your partner for example, and this can lead to ED. Or you may be stressed at work, which may also trigger it.

    So in fact, the answer to the question ‘Who gets ED?’ is anyone (and in some way or another, at some time, probably everyone).

    How common is erectile dysfunction?

    It depends who you ask. Some health bodies have suggested that as many as 50% of men over 40 will experience erectile dysfunction. And a study of the condition in men under 40 estimates that a quarter in this group will get it at some point.

    Unfortunately, the nature of ED means that many men won’t seek help for it. So it could well be more common than we think.  But experts reckon that most men will get some form of ED at least once, even if it’s only short-term.

    What causes erectile dysfunction?

    Lots of things can lead to ED. It can be down to physical problems (being overweight or having high blood pressure), psychological problems (anxiety or depression) or a combination of the two. Even tiredness can trigger ED. 

    ED can also be triggered by an underlying health condition, like diabetes, or it can be an early sign of heart disease. So if you keep getting erection problems, you should see a clinician, as these conditions need to be treated too. 

    In the body, ED is caused by loss of circulation to the penis, where the arteries at the base of the penis contract and don’t let blood through. An enzyme called PDE5 plays a part in this, and makes the arteries tighter. 

    Treatment for ED works by countering the effects of PDE5, so blood can flow into the penis, and help it to become erect when you’re aroused. 

    How we source info.

    When we present you with stats, data, opinion or a consensus, we’ll tell you where this came from. And we’ll only present data as clinically reliable if it’s come from a reputable source, such as a state or government-funded health body, a peer-reviewed medical journal, or a recognised analytics or data body. Read more in our editorial policy.

    Does ED always need treatment?

    No. Sometimes making lifestyle adjustments can make it go away. If you drink a lot of alcohol, smoke cigarettes, or take recreational drugs, curbing these habits can help with erections.

    Being overweight can be a factor in ED too, so eating a healthy diet and exercising more is a good solution as well.

    You might get erectile dysfunction if you’re anxious about sex. And talking to someone about it, whether it’s your partner, a friend or a therapist, can make all the difference. If you find that having conversations about it doesn’t help though, medication may be recommended.

    Which erectile dysfunction pills are best?

    It’s down to personal choice on your part really, and your health background.

    Viagra is a household name and has been around the longest, and some would argue it’s the most successful treatment for ED.

    The generic, Sildenafil, is less expensive, but has the same active ingredient in it, and functions in the same way in the body.

    The benefit of Cialis is that you only have to take one and it stays active for up to 36 hours (other ED drugs average about 4 or 5 hours).

    There’s also a smaller dose version of this designed to be taken every day, called Cialis once-a-day. With the everyday version, you’re ‘ready to go’ all the time, and you don’t have to wait around for the drug to take effect (it takes half an hour to an hour for most others). Tadalafil (generic Cialis), is cheaper and works in exactly the same way.

    As well as being a licensed treatment for ED, Tadalafil is an approved option for BPH (or benign prostatic hyperplasia) which is when you have an enlarged prostate. So if you experience BPH and ED, Tadalafil can treat both conditions.

    Spedra is an on-demand treatment that starts to work from 15 minutes after you take it. It’s a good option for men who want a quick-acting drug, but don’t want to take something every day.

    And then there’s Levitra, which is said to be better for older men or men with pre-existing conditions, like high blood pressure or diabetes.

    Injections for erectile dysfunction

    Another prescription medication for ED is injections. You may find that tablets aren’t the right treatments for you, or that your body doesn’t tolerate them. ED injections such as Caverject and Papaverine kick in very quickly (within five minutes) and they both contain the same active ingredient (alprostadil) so if you’re looking for fast results, injections can give you that.

    You inject these medications into the penis directly, and you don’t need to be aroused in the first place for them to take effect. If you’ve not used them before though, you should see your clinician or a pharmacist prescriber in the first instance, as they will need to show you how to do it.

    You shouldn’t use injections any more than three times a week (and not more than once over any 24 hour period). We don’t offer these at the moment, so you’ll need to see a doctor in person if you’re interested in using one.

    What about erectile dysfunction creams?

    Although some creams have been licensed to treat ED elsewhere in the world, there are currently no licensed ED treatments available to buy in Australia.

    The most popular prescription cream for ED in Europe is Vitaros, which is applied to the opening of the urethra (the opening at the tip of your penis) and the active ingredient in it, alprostadil, helps to widen the blood vessels in the penis. Once the blood vessels are more dilated, more blood flows into the penis, and this allows you to get an erection.

    In some countries you can also get a ‘urethral suppository’ – basically a very small pellet you insert into the opening at the end of your penis – called MUSE. MUSE, however, is also unavailable in Australia. So although there have been studies looking into providing alternative topical ED treatments here, at the moment you only have two treatment options: tablets or injections.

    Can you get erectile dysfunction pills over the counter?

    No, you need a prescription to be able to get any licensed ED treatments. You can get a prescription for ED treatments from us, just talk to us about your health and we’ll send you the best treatment for you based on your health needs and preferences.

    FAQ: Erectile dysfunction

    Have something specific you want to know about Erectile dysfunction? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

    Can you get side effects from ED treatment?

    Answer:
    Yes. Some mild side effects are quite common, don’t cause any problems, and go away after the first couple of uses. Headaches, a stuffy nose or mild aches and pains in the muscles are examples.

    There are other possible side effects that can be a bit more uncomfortable, such as stomach pain or dizziness. You should talk to our clinician if you notice these. They might suggest a different drug or lowering your dose.

    It’s rare, but some men experience serious side effects from ED drugs. This includes getting an erection that won’t go down, loss of hearing, problems with vision, or chest pain. If you notice anything like this, you should go to hospital immediately.

    Is there a link between erectile dysfunction and alcohol?

    Answer:
    Drinking too much alcohol can cause temporary ED, or make existing erection problems worse. There are a couple of reasons for this. One is that alcohol dulls the senses and desensitizes us, meaning the nerve signals that transmit arousal messages in the body don’t work as well. Another reason is that drinking alcohol increases blood pressure, making the arteries tighter (including those at the base of your penis).

    The best way to avoid alcohol induced ED is to limit how much you drink.

    What about natural remedies for erectile dysfunction?

    Answer:
    There are some herbs and homeopathy therapies that have been claimed to effectively treat ED, but the scientific evidence that they work is thin.

    Some natural or alternative treatments for ED can have serious side effects, and because they aren’t on prescription, you won’t go through any health checks before taking them. So in some cases, herbal ED remedies can be dangerous.

    For this reason, it’s better to consult with a clinician before taking any kind of treatment for ED, be it prescription, non-prescription or otherwise.
