What are the treatments for this problem?

Oral medications like viagra: These medications increase production of nitric oxide, a natural body chemical that relaxes penis muscles and increases blood flow that helps in getting erection.

Testosterone replacement therapies

Penis pump or vacuum erection device: It is a hollow tube that is placed over the penis to suck out the air, present inside the tube. This will help in creating a vacuum which pulls blood into the penis.

Penile implant surgery: The surgery involves placing inflatable or bendable implants (rods) into both the sides of the penis. These implants will allow you to control when and for how long you want the erection. These rods keep the penis firm.
You can look for a general physician or a sexologist near you.
