If you are experiencing erectile dysfunction, it is important to openly discuss it with your doctor so that you can get help and find the right erectile dysfunction treatment for you.

In this video, Dr. Knoepflmacher suggests some ways you can start a conversation about erectile dysfunction with your doctor. Although it may be uncomfortable at first, don't be nervous and just be natural. You could say that you're having some problems in the bedroom, or that you're having problems performing. Your doctor will be able to help you from there.

Dr. Knoepflmacher explains that there are many erectile dysfunction treatment methods available, ranging from medicines to other types of therapies. Patients are often relieved to discover that erectile dysfunction treatment usually works very quickly and effectively.
