Viagra and beyond
If you believe the advertising industry, erectile dysfunction can be easily solved by several drug options — which also result in a sunny, worry-free life and frequent, suggestive glances from your significant other.
These drugs are often effective and are commonly used. However, erectile dysfunction can be fairly complex and not easily vanquished by a pill. Male sexual function is the interplay of adequate blood flow and appropriate muscular function of the penis — the target of most erectile dysfunction drugs — and of nerves, hormone levels, psychology and emotion. Moreover, erection problems can be a sign of other health issues such as heart disease.
