Finding a cure for my Erectile Dysfunction

You have a number of choices but they can be broadly divided into two categories of professionals:

(1) Clinical Psychologists
(2) Medical Doctors


(1) Clinical Psychologists. Clinical Psychologists are professional graduates specifically trained to talk, to listen, and to guide people suffering from a wide range of emotional and mental upset. As a rule, they offer an excellent drug-free alternative to Psychiatrics.
If you choose to consult with a Clinical Psychologist about your sexual dysfunction make sure it is one who has a specialist interest in this subject as distinct from a General Clinical Psychologist. Generalist might treat anything from aerophobia to insomnia and, while they may be excellent at their job, they may lack the subtle skills that can make all the difference when it comes to resolving your erectile dysfunction.
Be weary also of posers and charlatans operating in this area. There are hundreds of unqualified people out there offering a quick fix for erectile dysfunction through hypnotherapy or herbal remedy. Always ask about qualifications and for any scientific studies supporting their claims. If either of these seem lacking or are being obfuscated, then steer clear.
If you choose a Clinical Psychologist to help you overcome your ED then ensure that they are fully qualified, that they have many years experience, that they specialise in managing sexual dysfunctions and that they are working from an accredited professional setting such as a University based Department or Family Planning Clinic. Never be afraid to ask questions. It is your right to know exactly who to going to try and help you through this difficult and sensitive problem.
Just one final word about Clinical Psychologists treating sexual dysfunction: Whereas they undoubtedly have a great deal to offer, they are nonetheless confined to treating your erectile dysfunction without the benefit of any prescription medicine. This, in some respects, maybe admirable but some cases of erectile dysfunction simply cannot be resolved without at least some medication. You do need to bear this in mind if choosing a Clinical Psychologist.
(2) Medical Doctors. The same rules apply to Medial Doctors. If you are choosing a medical doctor to help you to resolve your erectile dysfunction then make sure that he or she has many years experience and has a specialist interest in treating sexual dysfunction. Here is a useful tip for you. Ask yourself these questions about the doctor treating your erectile dysfunction:
(a) Is the doctor treating my erectile dysfunction genuinely trying to understand my problem and diagnose the underlying cause? If the answer to this is 'no' then you may be with the wrong doctor.
(b) Is the doctor treating my ED a generalist or a specialist? If the doctor is a generalist treating all diseases then perhaps you are in the wrong place.
(c) Is the doctor dealing with my erectile problem prepared to stay with me until a solution is found, or simply throwing Viagra at the problem and hoping for the best? If the doctor seems willing to give up on you after trying a few tablets then you should definitely take your problem elsewhere.
(d) Is the doctor treating my erectile dysfunction well known as a specialist in managing this problem? If the answer to this is 'no' then maybe you should be looking elsewhere.
SUMMARY
In finding a professional to help you overcome your erectile dysfunction, you may choose either a Clinical Psychologist or a Medial Doctor.
If you decide to consult a Clinical Psychologist then:
(a) Ensure that they specialise in treating sexual dysfunctions and are not just a general Clinical Psychologist.
(b) Ensure that they practise from a credible setting.
(c) Remember that they will not be in a position to prescribe any mediation.
(d) Realise that, while they may be excellent at treating ED related to anxiety, this maybe the totality of their skills.
(e) Understand that a Clinical Psychologist may be very limited as to their diagnostic abilities.

If you decide to consult a Medical Doctor then:
(a) Make sure you are talking to a specialist in treating sexual dysfunction, not just to a General Practitioner dabbling in this area.
(b) Ask yourself is the doctor genuinely trying to diagnose the underlying cause of your problem.
(c) Enquire if the physician can offer the whole range of ED treatments including Testosterone Replacement Therapy and painless penis injection where appropriate.
(d) Ensure that the doctor is prepared to stay working on your problem until a solution is found that you find satisfactory.

  2. It was a very tough time when I suddenly stopped having erections. I was so frustrated, so I could try anything to regain my power back. After several fails with exercises and herbals a friend of mine advised to visit uniQaid.com to resolve the problem. And this is fantastic now. I do not bother about ED anymore and my wife is satisfied as well.

  3. It’s true that ED is something that’s hard to ignore, yet hard to consult. The main antagonist in the picture is the feeling of inferiority the victim is feeling. This is a man thing. So, it’s better if he's ready to talk about it before going the right specialist.
