There are still options available for men with severe heart disease. But, realistic expectations must be considered. If a man can walk up a flight stairs without getting short of breath then they can seek out options for their erectile dysfunction. Pills such as viagra, levitra and Cialis are helpful, or injection therapy such as Trimix can be used. However, you would want to discuss any ED treatment with your cardiologist first.

Yes, the first issue to address is to make sure that your heart doctor feels that you are safe for sexual activity. There are a variety of options including oral medications, VED (vacuum erectile device), injection therapy and surgery. I recommend speaking with a sexual medicine expert.
