What is ED?
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is defined as the inability to get or maintain an erection sufficient for sex. Having erection trouble from time to time isn’t necessarily a cause for concern.

ED can have many causes, but the nuts and bolts are that ED happens when there is too little blood flow into the penis, and too much blood flows out. This process can be affected by PDE5, an enzyme present that hinders erection
Our Opt Health doctors can diagnose you with ED online, then prescribe ED medications that block PDE5 enzymes. PDE5 inhibitors lower the activity of PDE5 enzymes to raise the level of cGMP, the key mechanism of penile erection – eventually leading to relaxed muscles and full erections.
The result? An improved ability to get and maintain an erection so that you can perform at the top of your game.
ED may have underlying physical and psychological causes. If you are concerned about erectile dysfunction, talk to an Opt physician today.
