If you suspect that you have a sexual disorder like erectile dysfunction, it can be challenging to accept it and reach out for help. Although erectile dysfunction is a common condition that many men experience, people who have it often feel like they’re alone and deal with feelings of shame and embarrassment.
However, treating erectile dysfunction is actually quite easy. Wherever you’re located, you can access online treatment options, so you don’t even need to visit your GP. But requesting help is the first (and most critical) step to improving your condition.
In this post, we will share a bit more information about erectile dysfunction and how it happens. We’ll also provide a step-by-step guide for what to do if you believe that you have erectile dysfunction, along with helpful resources to get help.
Also called impotence, erectile dysfunction is a sexual disorder in which a man cannot achieve or hold an erection long enough for sexual activity. It’s quite common among Australian men, with an estimated 30% of Aussie males experiencing it.
Erectile dysfunction is triggered by a number of things, including psychological issues and physical health problems. Psychological causes may include depression, anxiety, relationship problems, financial worries, and work stress. Psychogenic causes of erectile dysfunction include diabetes, high blood pressure, and Parkinson’s disease. If you have erectile dysfunction, it could be due to one or more of these factors.
While it’s normal to have trouble getting an erection from time to time, medical experts say that it should only be considered erectile dysfunction if it happens repeatedly and has become concerning for you.
If the above information resonated with you, it’s possible that you have erectile dysfunction (but only a doctor can confirm this). Here is how to proceed if you find yourself in that situation.
As we mentioned, the best place to get help for erectile dysfunctions (and other sexual disorders) is through an online men’s health medical practice such as Men’s Health Direct. Our team of Australian registered doctors has extensive experience and knowledge in the field of men’s sexual health, with a successful track record of diagnosing and treating sexual dysfunction.

If you’re interested in seeking treatment through Men’s Health Direct, you’ll first arrange a virtual appointment with our medical team. During your confidential consultation, your doctor will ask about the reasons that you think you have erectile dysfunction. At this point, you should reference the notes you’ve already compiled in relation to how often you have difficulty getting an erection and how long it’s been going on.
Once you have provided your answers, your doctor will determine whether or not you have erectile dysfunction. If so, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss a tailored treatment plan that’s best for you. In the case that medications are required, the Men’s Health Direct pharmacy team will fill your prescriptions and ship them to you in discreet packaging.
As you go through treatment, we encourage you to continue monitoring your symptoms and notice how they change. You should see improvement soon after you begin treatment. If you don’t, our medical support staff is available 24/7 to answer your questions and address concerns.
