Medications: If one has erectile dysfunction, the first thing to do is to lead a healthy lifestyle and do routine labs to determine if there is a treatable cause. . If this fails, there are several medical options. These include oral medications, penile injection of medications, or using a vacuum erection device. If all these fails, then the last option is surgery for a penile implant.

Unresponsive ED: No joke! These days, most cases of erectile dysfunction respond quite well to oral PDE-5 inhibitors such as Cialis, Levitra, (vardenafil) Staxyn, Stendra & Viagra.

No...: Selenium has not proven to be effective in treating ED although it has been touted as a help to prostate health, but no sure confirmation through clinical double-blinded, randomized study. So, it has no convincible evidence to advise its use for ED. Instead, healthy lifestyle without overindulgence / obsession should be adopted as the foundation for healthcare.
