The inability to achieve an erection is a symptom of an underlying health problem or a result of lifestyle factors that aren’t allowing the physiological mechanisms of an erection to unfold. For some men, this is only an occasional problem, which may be the result of increased stress, drinking alcohol or fatigue.

A penile prosthesis or implant is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction. Penile implant surgeries take about an hour and are typically done in an outpatient center.
Can be taken two different ways: daily or as needed. Taken daily it stays effective between doses but may take four to five days before it begins working. When taken as needed, sometimes called the “weekend pill,” Cialis can start working in as little as 30 minutes for men who take the highest dose of the drug (20 mg). At as-needed doses, it can stay effective in the body for up to 36 hours.
The penile implant allows men to achieve an erection through an implanted device. These devices can be effective in restoring sexual activity for a man and his partner. At Yale Medicine, our doctors have specialized experience with placing the penile prosthesis.

Cholesterol can cause damage to blood vessel linings in all parts of the body – including the penis.

In addition, doctors may prescribe pharmaceuticals to lower cholesterol in the blood.

Testosterone replacement in patients with hypogonadism remains controversial. A double-blind placebo controlled study using long-acting testosterone undeconate and involving seven UK general practices showed small changes in glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) (reduced from 7.61% to 7.52%) over 30 weeks but marked changes after a further 22 weeks (down from 8.3% to 7.3%). Mean weight loss was 2 kg with a 1.5 cm reduction in waist circumference.9 There was no significant increase in mean PSA and mean haematocrit was unchanged. Another meta-analysis showed significant reduction in fasting plasma glucose, HbA1c, fat mass and triglycerides, but no significant change in total and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, blood pressure or BMI.10
The goal of treatment of this defect is to reconstruct a straight penis with a meatus close to the normal anatomic location. Repair is being performed at progressively younger ages to avoid emotional distress in the young child. Currently, the recommended age for repair is between 3 and 12 months (for hypospadias epispadias or urethroplasty) and during the first year (for chordee repair or orthoplasty). Three objectives of surgical correction of this defect are to ensure the child's ability to void in the standing position with a straight stream (will minimize child and parent anxiety) to improve the child's physical appearance and ensure a positive body image and to preserve sexual function.
