Discover alternative ways to treat your erection problems, other than pills. When you request discrete help from a fully qualified independent online doctor through Blueclinic, he may recommend an alternative form of treatment instead of drugs. Sometimes the best solution is a combination of the two. That depends on your situation and preferences, as well as the doctor’s decision. By alternatives to pills we mean counselling, a penis pump, a penis ring or self-injection therapy (ICI). If the online doctor believes you should visit your GP or another medical practitioner, he will advise you to do so.
All forms of therapy have their advantages and their drawbacks. Some can also cause side-effects in certain patients. Before beginning any non-drug treatment, then, we advise that you see your GP to discuss the options in person.
About alternative treatments
Counselling can help some men overcome erectile dysfunction. Too much pressure at home or at work can cause stress, which may eventually put a strain on your intimate relationships. If that sounds familiar to you, then counselling could be the answer. In other cases, a penis pump or ring might be what you need to help get and maintain an erection. They’re certainly effective for some men. Another possible option is so-called intracavernosal self-injection therapy, or ICI. This involves injecting your own penis with a drug in order to stimulate an erection.
If you’re not sure which treatment is best for you, a good first step is to talk with your GP about your particular situation and needs. Whatever the case, pills are not the only possible solution. It just depends what you prefer. We definitely recommend seeing your GP about it.
