My husband gets regular exercise but cant over do it because he is an... amputee. If he walks too much he hurts his wounds on his stump. He eats healthy and is not on insulin or on pills but still checks his blood glucose levels everyday he is type 2 diabetic. We are still trying Levitra 20mg but he is still having trouble getting an erection. Right when the pill starts working he masturbates and has an orgasm but does not get erect enough for penetration. It is getting there but it needs to get harder in the head of the penis. Is there anything else anyone would suggest we try besides just the pills? Maybe sex therapy? I look forward to your response. Have a great day.
There are a few things/medicine which can be tried for erectile dysfunction, but it depends on what the cause of erectile dysfunction is. Your doctor is obviously aware of the situation. Please get him/or her to look into it further.
Is your husband on the highest dose of Levitra? Sometimes when one doesn't work that well the other medicines from the same class of medicines may work better. So perhaps try Viagra and Cialis.
Another effective treatment for erectile dysfuntion is alprostadil. Alprostadil is either injected into the penis or a tiny suppository is inserted into the urethra. It is a synthetic version of prostaglandin E, which is a vasodilator and improves blood flow to the penis.
