Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction advice and information

Impotence, or erectile dysfunction, is one of the most common male sexual health concerns. It’s estimated that at least one in ten men will suffer from impotence at some point in their lives. Symptoms may be temporary, but they are almost always upsetting for men to experience and can easily put a strain on their relationships.

The causes of the condition are wide ranging and can be either physical or psychological in nature. If you are suffering from impotence, then there are a number of effective oral ED treatments, such as:

  • Viagra sildenafil citrate
  • Cialis tadalafil
  • Cialis A Day
  • Levitra vardenafil or Levitra Orodispersible

Above mentioned medicine can help you to enjoy a healthy sex life again. These treatments are available to buy from OnlineClinic if you complete an online consultation when you make your purchase. Our pharmacy will then dispatch your medication for free next day delivery.

    Defining impotence

    Impotence is defined as the inability to achieve or sustain an erection to complete sexual intercourse. For some, this can mean the inability to get an erection at all when they’re aroused. For others, it can be that they lose their erection shortly after penetration. If you experience this several times in a short period, you should consider discussing an impotence treatment with a doctor, either in person or online.

    What are the psychological causes of Erectile Dysfunction?

    Psychologically-induced causes are more prevalent in younger men, who are more likely to experience anxiety about ‘performing’. If you are still experiencing an erection when you wake up, or can achieve one during masturbation, then your impotence is more likely to be psychological.

    Common psychological causes include:

    • Anxiety, guilt or depression
    • Stress
    • Conflict with your partner
    • Unresolved issues regarding your sexual orientation
    • Sexual boredom
    • Exhaustion

    What are the physical causes of Erectile Dysfunction?

    Physical causes either relate to medical conditions or lifestyle choices: smoking, excessive drinking and physical inactivity can all have a detrimental effect on your sexual health.

    Common causes of physically-induced impotence include:

    • Deterioration of the arteries
    • Diabetes
    • Smoking
    • Alcoholism
    • Being obese or overweight
    • Medications
    • Spinal cord or cerebral injuries
    • Abdominal and prostate surgery

    What should I do if I think I am suffering from impotence?

    Trying to determine the most effective cause of erectile dysfunction is paramount to finding the appropriate Erectile Dysfunction treatment. Speaking to your doctor and your partner will help you to understand what may be causing your erectile dysfunction. If you conclude that your condition is psychological, then psychotherapy and counselling may be the most suitable solution.

    You should take positive steps to improve your lifestyle; exercise more regularly if you are not already, and cut down on your alcohol and cigarette consumption. You should also try to reduce your stress levels if possible.

    What prescription options are there for impotence treatment?

    Prescription treatment is now the preferred option for most men who suffer from this condition. Oral medication carries few side effects and can be used for either short-term or long-term ED treatment. Each medication works in a similar way: by increasing the blood flow to your penis.


    Viagra was the first oral medication for impotence treatment and has helped an estimated 20 million men enjoy a healthy sex life again. Viagra should be taken at least 30 minutes before you are planning to have sexual intercourse and will last for up to four hours.


    Cialis works in a similar way to Viagra, but lasts much longer. Known as ‘the weekend pill’, Cialis has an active time of 36 hours, which will allow for much greater spontaneity.

    Cialis A Day

    Cialis A Day is available in a low once-a-day dose, for those who seek a long term solution.


    Levitra is available in lower dosage strengths, which makes it a more ideal solution for older men and those with underlying health conditions such as high cholesterol and diabetes. Levitra starts to work 20 to 60 minutes after you take it and is effective for up to five hours.

    Levitra Orodispersible

    Levitra Orodispersible is a new dissolvable version of Levitra which gets to work instantly because it is immediately absorbed by your system and doesn’t need to be taken with water.

    Impotence Trial Pack

    The Impotence Trial Pack is a recent addition to OnlineClinic and offers first time users of erectile dysfunction medications a chance to sample each treatment to establish which one is most effective for their condition. It also gives long time users the ability to enjoy each unique characteristic of the popular impotence treatments, Viagra, Cialis and Levitra, for their dosages and attributes.

    In addition, there are various generic impotence treatments and herbal ED treatments alternatives readily available for sale online. However, Viagra is strictly a prescription-only medication and it is not recommended that you take either of these medications without the consent of a doctor, because they will not have followed the strict testing regimes that branded Viagra is required to follow.

We ask each of our patients to take an online consultation before they can receive their prescription, so that one of our team of doctors can assess their suitability for the chosen medication.
