ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION SYMPTOMS

Learn more about erectile dysfunction

ED symptoms include difficulty forming or sustaining an erection, decreased libido and a loss of sexual interest. Beyond the bedroom, erectile dysfunction may impact relationships, causing emotional distance and communication issues with partners.

Get fast and convenient access to erectile dysfunction treatment, delivered to your door.

You shouldn’t face ED alone. You can make lifestyle changes with your partner, try clinically-proven ED treatments, and find your way back to a satisfying sex life. 

Recognising Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction

Taking steps to treat erectile dysfunction means understanding more than just the physical signs of ED. It’s about recognising the cycle of losing erections repeatedly and feeling ashamed. The emotional side of ED can impact both partners in a relationship. By facing these feelings together, you can start finding ways to overcome them and rebuild your connection.

The Impact of ED on Relationships and Well-being

Erectile dysfunction goes beyond the physical, straining relationships and overall well-being. It triggers emotional stress, lowers self-confidence, and creates distance between partners, which may lead to stress and anxiety. The impacts of erectile dysfunction pinpoint the need for holistic ED solutions that consider physical symptoms and partner connection.

Partner Support

When tackling erectile dysfunction, having your partner by your side can make a big difference. Their understanding of sexual health issues and support can help ease feelings of isolation and self-doubt. By approaching ED together, you can explore treatment options, make lifestyle changes, and strengthen your relationship.

When to seek help for ED?

As a symptom of an underlying condition or lifestyle choices, erectile dysfunction can happen to all men at some point in life. 

It’s essential to speak with your doctor when:

  • You’re concerned about your erections
  • You’re experiencing ED with other sexual issues, like premature ejaculation (PE) or delayed ejaculation
  • You have diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or other health conditions linked to ED
  • You have other symptoms alongside ED

It’s time to look after your health

Erectile dysfunction is treatable. Find clinically proven ED treatments that work for you and your partner.

Frequently asked questions

hub.health uses a secure digital health platform to provide discreet, convenient, and affordable access to erectile dysfunction treatment from an Australian based medical team, all from the privacy of your home.

After completing the online questionnaire, your assigned clinician will determine if you’re a candidate for ED treatment. If you’re successful, we’ll organise fast delivery to your door (we’ll even manage your repeats when they’re due). If our medical team identifies a potential risk in issuing ED treatment, they’ll likely refer you to an in-person GP for further review.

At hub.health, we believe in providing a personalised healthcare experience centred around the individual needs of our patients. Our services are backed by an established team of doctors, nurse practitioners, and medical experts, enabling us to provide services and treatments for various conditions. All treatments are prescribed online and discreetly delivered to your door for convenient and easy access to medical care.

By choosing hub.health, we’ll pair you with a medical team that specialises in erectile dysfunction so you can improve your sexual performance and last longer in the bedroom.

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) states, “The most common first-line therapy for ED is a PDE5 inhibitor”. So, the hub.health medical team prescribe the most common PDE5 oral medications.

It’s recommended that ED medications should be taken 1-2 hours before sexual activity. If taken too close to sex, they may not ‘kick in’ quickly enough.

Oral ED medication is considered effective, with studies showing 82% of users reporting an improvement in their erections after using PDE5 inhibitors. However, it’s important to note that ED medication isn’t effective for everyone and response to medication will differ based upon individual circumstances.

If you’re still experiencing erectile dysfunction after trialling medication, your hub.health clinician may suggest trialling medication under different circumstances. They may also alter your dosage, depending on your reaction and side effects.

ED medication isn’t instant; it can take 15-minutes to 1-hour to start working. If ED medications don’t seem to work for you, try not to worry as there are other treatments available. Alternative ED treatments include injectable ED medications, urethral suppositories, vacuum constriction devices (penis pumps), and penile implants. If you’re concerned about the efficacy of ED treatment, always speak with your clinician who can investigate further.

ED drugs all work similarly and therefore share potential side effects of:

  • Mild reduction in blood pressure levels (caused by their effects on smooth muscle tissue and blood flow)

  • Mild headaches (associated with all ED drugs)

  • Dizziness

  • Muscle aches or back pain

  • Stuffy nose

  • Facial flushing

  • Vision issues, including temporary blurred vision and blue-tinted vision

  • Digestive issues, ranging from diarrhoea to indigestion, and bloating (can be worsened by consuming alcohol, caffeine, carbonated drinks, and dairy products)

These side effects typically occur while the medication is active in the body, however in some cases it is possible for side effects to linger for slightly longer than the drug.

It’s important to pay attention to these side effects, particularly if you have cardiovascular health conditions. If you use nitrates or other medications to treat hypertension, the lowered blood pressure caused by ED medications can be dangerous. That’s why it’s important to always provide honest, accurate answers on your questionnaire and during conversations with your hub.health doctor.
