Diagnosing Erectile Dysfunction (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Diagnostic Testing Results
Your doctor will discuss your results with you (including your partner when possible) and summarize any risk factors (eg, smoking, medications) that may be involved. Your doctor will also review with you the various treatment options that can be considered. Together, you and your doctor will develop a strategy to help you and your partner achieve a satisfactory result.
Once significant systemic diseases, such as diabetes or heart disease, are ruled out, an oral medication, such as Viagra, Levitra, or Cialis, may be prescribed. If these agents are successful, further testing is usually not warranted.
