ED: Pd5 inhibitors are the mainstay of therapy for ED. Sildenafil, vardenafil, and tadalafil are the only ones FDA approved in the US. Urethral suppositories of prostaglandine1 as well as injectable pge1 are available and FDA approved. Other injections of papaverine, regitine (phentolamine) and Atropine are used but not FDA approved for ED. Stay away from the so called natural alternatives; a waste of $$$$.

Depends : It depends what you mean. Many boys expect themselves to be sexual athletes like the porn actors they see on the internet and think if their sexual responses are not as quick, intense or sustained that something is wrong. This is a vicious circle because anxiety is the most common cause of erectile dysfunction in physically healthy men.
