“Pills don’t work for me”, is there another solution?
Of course there is. Although they are the best known solution, they are only suitable for 60% of men who suffer from this problem. When pills do not give satisfactory results, there are other options that will restore the patient’s erection. In case the erection loss is not due to a physical cause, but to a psychological problem, there are also very effective therapies. If erections begin to lose rigidity, it is important to see a specialist to identify the causes. In most cases, erectile dysfunction is secondary to a primary disease.

When is penile prosthesis indicated?
The penile prosthesis is a definitive solution that is indicated for men who are unable to solve the lack of rigidity with drugs due to severe circulatory insufficiency, to a venous leak that prevents blood from remaining in the corpora cavernosa of the penis or for those who, after surgery, have lost their erection as a result of it.
Is fertility maintained with a prosthesis?
If the patient is fertile before surgery, he will continue to be fertile after surgery. The erection achieved with the prosthesis will make it possible for ejaculation to take place inside the vagina and there will be much more chances of fertilization than when the patient did not achieve an erection. It is a safe and effective solution, indicated in 15% of cases. The choice of the type of prosthesis according to the patient’s anatomy is very important to guarantee an optimal postoperative period and a good functioning of the prosthesis.
