Is it true?

Erectile dysfunction is an inevitable part of the aging process so one just has to accept it.

Not true!
The risk of developing erectile dysfunction does in fact increase with age, but this is connected with the aging process in the body and does not mean that one just has to accept it. Several treatment options that improve the erectile function are available on the market, enabling men to enjoy a healthy sex life well into later years.

Erectile dysfunction exists only in the head.

Not true!
Erectile dysfunction is due to organic causes in 80% of cases, while psychological causes amount to only 10%.

Erection problems are a cause for concern.

Erection problems should be taken seriously. Erection dysfunction has a negative effect on a man’s self-esteem, the quality of life and the relationship itself. It is often also an early sign of a more serious concurrent illness (e.g. cardiovascular disease or diabetes).

There is a solution for erection problems.

The treatment of most patients with erectile dysfunction is simple. Treatment with sildenafil has proved to effectively relieve symptoms. Its quick onset of action and safe use contribute significantly to an improved sex life in patients.

Men under 40 years of age are not at a risk for erectile dysfunction.

Not true!
Even though erectile dysfunction is more common in older men, it can actually affect men of all ages. We are witnessing an increase of illnesses that can affect the development of erectile dysfunction (e.g. diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease) in younger men.

Only medicines prescribed by the doctor are suitable for treating erectile dysfunction.

The prescription medicines prescribed by your doctor have been proved to be effective and safe. There are no natural substances and food supplements proven to be effective in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Furthermore, prescription-free products not sold in pharmacies are not guaranteed as safe.

Erectile dysfunction only affects men.

Not true!
Erectile dysfunction often causes frustration and low self-esteem in a man, which can lead to depression and aggressive behaviour. It can have a negative effect on the relationship as well as family, friendship and business relations.

It is impossible to get rid of the erection after taking the tablet.

Not true!
The medicine is not effective without sexual stimulation (sensory stimuli, imagination, kissing, touching, etc.). When sexual stimulation is not present, the erection doesn’t develop, or it ends.
