What causes erectile dysfunction?

Hi, my boyfriend has type 2 diabetes and is suffering with ED..He is resistant and I think fearful to see a urologist. He has tried Cialis, which didn't result in an erection for intercourse..he isn't keen on using a vacuum pump, I think he finds it humiliating..I don't know what else I can suggest...any help?

Hi,

It can be due to:
• infection
• diabetes
• spinal injury
• recent masturbation
• Stress
• Depression
• Varicocele

You need to check Doppler Penis, USG Pelvis and scrotum, Blood Pressure, RBS, Free T3 T4 TSH. Based the cause and the result of the reports of the mentioned studies only, treatment can be suggested.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. S. R. Raveendran, Sexologist
