If your doctor suspects that you may have an underlying condition, however, you might need further tests or a consultation with a specialist. Tests for underlying conditions can include: A physical exam: Your doctor will examine your penis and testicles for signs of abnormalities and will test sensation. Blood tests: Blood tests can show if you may have heart disease, diabetes, low testosterone levels, or other issues. Urine tests: Urinalysis is used to look for signs of diabetes and other health conditions. An ultrasound: A specially trained technician will use a wand-like device (transducer) over the blood vessels that supply the penis to analyze for blood flow issues. A psychological exam: Your doctor may want to evaluate you for depression or other mental illnesses that may cause erectile dysfunction.

Implants, or prostheses, help restore firmness for many men with ED. There are two types:
According to Mayo Clinic, men with erectile dysfunction may experience some or all of these persistent symptoms:
In the second study, a single oral dose of VIAGRA 50 mg or matching placebo was administered in a 2-period crossover design to 20 generally healthy males with BPH. Following at least 14 consecutive days of doxazosin, VIAGRA 50 mg or matching placebo was administered simultaneously with doxazosin 4 mg (17 subjects) or with doxazosin 8 mg (3 subjects). The mean subject age in this study was 63.9 years.
Another brand name of sildenafil, called Revatio, is used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs) and improve exercise ability in men and women with this condition.

There have been postmarketing reports of bleeding events in patients who have taken VIAGRA. A causal relationship between VIAGRA and these events has not been established. In humans, VIAGRA has no effect on bleeding time when taken alone or with aspirin. However, in vitro studies with human platelets indicate that sildenafil potentiates the antiaggregatory effect of sodium nitroprusside (a nitric oxide donor). In addition, the combination of heparin and VIAGRA had an additive effect on bleeding time in the anesthetized rabbit, but this interaction has not been studied in humans.

While ED is not life threatening, the condition may result in withdrawal from sexual intimacy, reduced quality of life, decreased working productivity, and increased healthcare utilization. Patterns of care may shift away from surgical and device therapies provided by urologists and toward pharmacologic treatments and/or multidisciplinary approaches. With men increasingly seeking to preserve sexual function and quality of life as they age, the treatment of ED will take on even greater importance in the years to come.

An additional analysis compared treated and untreated men within each blood pressure group. In the hypertension category, treated and untreated patients had similar penile blood flow velocities. However, in the high-normal category, treated men had worse penile blood flow than untreated men. Similarly, in the normal blood pressure category, treated men had worse penile blood flow than untreated men.
