The failure in having and maintaining an erection during intercourse is known as erectile dysfunction. If you have trouble in erection a few times, it is not a matter of concern. However, you should consult a sexologist doctor in Kolkata if this is an ongoing issue. You will be free from this problem if there are proper diagnosis and treatment.


The doctor can diagnose erectile dysfunction by carrying out a physical exam and going through your medical history. You may need to undergo some diagnostic tests which can reveal whether there is an underlying condition behind erectile dysfunction. Some of these tests are:

  • Blood tests:

    In order to check for the signs of diabetes, heart disease, low testosterone levels and other health conditions, these tests are done.

  • Ultrasound:

    In this test, the specialist moves a transducer, which is a device like a wand, over the blood vessels supplying the penis. The doctor can see whether there is any problem in the blood flow in a video image created during this test.

  • Urine tests (urinalysis):

    The doctor can check whether there are signs of diabetes or other underlying health conditions from the results of the urine tests.

In order to know whether depression or any other psychological factor is behind erectile dysfunction, the doctor may ask you some questions.


Erectile dysfunction treatment depends on the cause and severity of your erectile dysfunction. It also depends on any underlying medical conditions. There are different options for erectile dysfunction treatment in Kolkata. They include:

  • Oral medications:

    A number of men suffering from erectile dysfunction get benefits from oral medications. Sildenafil, Tadalafil, Vardenafil and Avanafil are some medications which give good results. The effects of nitric oxide increase on having these medications. The muscles in your penis get relaxed under the effect of nitric oxide, a natural chemical in your body. When you are sexually stimulated, there is increased blood flow and you get an erection. The doctor will suggest you the medication and its dose based on your condition.

  • Penis pumps:

    There is a hand-powered or battery-powered pump with a penis pump, which is a hollow tube. It is a type of vacuum erection device. You have to place the pump over your penis and then use the pump to suck out the air inside the tube. Blood travels to your penis as a vacuum is created. You have to slip a tension ring around your penis base once there is an erection in order to hold in the blood and keep the penis firm. You must consult your doctor before you buy and use a penis pump.

  • Penile implants:

    If none of the other methods gives you the desired results, the doctor may suggest the use of penile implants. There are either inflatable or malleable (bendable) rods in these implants. You can control when to have an erection and how long it will last because of the inflatable devices. You are able to keep your penis firm but bendable with the help of the malleable rods.
