Treatments of Erectile Dysfunction in India

During my three years of suffering from erectile dysfunction, I started looking for treatments for erectile dysfunction in India.

We men in our country live a very sedentary lifestyle and have the bad habit of smoking and alcohol consumption, making ED prevalent here. Hence, more and more people lined up in queues to meet the doctors to get the solution even at a young age.

I am not sure what lead to my erectile dysfunction problem but it could be because of an unhealthy lifestyle. I was young and healthy but still, it affected me.

It doesn’t matter if you are young and healthy, erectile dysfunction can engulf anyone from any age.

With my experience, I have managed to jot down the important treatments done in India to treat erectile dysfunction. 

Let us have a look at the treatments for ED.

In the end, I hope that there will be lots of ways for you to get rid of the problem.

Current Erectile dysfunction treatments

Below I have talked about some common treatments of erectile dysfunction in India.

1. Counseling

Counseling best way to manage ED

We all live in times where there is so much to cope up with. From completing office paperwork to getting good jobs, stress is piling upon each of us. 

Hence, all of this does coagulate and ends up causing mental health issues, such as depression, stress, relationship issues, and so much more. 

Constant stress and anxiety can cause erectile dysfunction. Hence to combat this, you need to take the below-mentioned actions.

  • Talk to therapist
  • Consult with ED counselors
  • Visit psychiatrist
  • Get help from sexual coaches

This mostly works in the case of psychogenic erectile dysfunction where a man just needs to get a confidence boost to reduce his sex anxiety.

2. Oral medication (PDE5 inhibitors)

PDE5-inhibitors for erectile dysfunction

One of the most popular and common ED treatments has been PDE5 inhibitor tablets which are taken orally. 

These pills are taken at least 30 minutes to an hour before the sexual activity, along with water. 

They help in rushing the blood through the penis, which helps in getting a firm erection. These medications work better for people who have mild to moderate ED. 

However, these medications have several side effects, such as headaches, nausea, and stuffy nose. Some of the drugs are:

  • Sildenafil
  • Tadalafil
  • Vardenafil
  • Avanafil

3. Herbal/Ayurvedic Supplements

Some natural and herbal medications have been found to improve blood flow to the penile area, resulting in a more prolonged erection. 

Herbal supplements are helpful for mild to moderate ED problems, but they may not be enough in severe cases. Some of the supplements which you can try are:

  • L-Arginine
  • Hardrock capsules
  • Ginseng
  • Gingko Biloba
  • Zinc
  • Vitamins
  • Horny Goat Weed
  • Pycnogenol
  • Tribulus

I have tried many of these, and you should try by buying them online. Also, make sure that you read about them before purchasing them.

Penis pump - best way to keep an erection

4. Penis Pumps (Vacuum Pumps)

Yet other so-called treatments for erectile dysfunction in India have to be the penis pumps. 

This penis pump is a plastic tube that is put over the penis. Once done, the air is drawn out of the tube, and a vacuum is created. The blood floods into the penis, inflating it. Then, to keep blood from flowing out, a cock ring is used. 

However, the penis pump is effective only if you have any blood circulatory problems or damaged nerves. 

It’s not the best available option since it is inconvenient to use, and most people do not achieve a long enough erection to enable penetration. 

It has been stated that using a penis pump is inconvenient and painful. Penis pumps come in a range of designs, and anyone can purchase one after reading the feedback.

5. Penile Injection

Penile injection - Treatment of erectile dysfunction in India

The penile injection is also known as intracavernosal injection therapy. With this treatment’s help, drugs like trimix, Bijix, or papaverine are injected straight away into the penis shaft, which then induces chemical signals and fills the penis with blood. 

The syringe used for this treatment is the same as the one used in diabetes treatment, except it has a short needle.

It’s mainly useful for people who don’t respond to oral medications. It has a high success rate of more than 80%. 

This approach is inconvenient and time-consuming. It has adverse effects, such as priapism, a condition in which blood remains stuck in the penis for long periods, causing irreversible damage to the erectile tissue. 

If this occurs, the patient can seek medical attention right away so that the blood can be drained from the penis.

6. Penile Suppositories

Penile suppositories are made up of chemicals. Rather than injecting it directly into the penis, it is inserted into the penis through the urethra. 

It belongs to a category of drugs known as vasodilators, which widen blood vessels to improve blood flow. 

Since it improves blood flow to the penis, this drug induces an erection.

7. Lifestyle Changes

One of the main reasons due to which mankind suffers from diseases is due to our lifestyle. We would always suggest all of you try and live a healthy lifestyle to cure ED

We all do know very well that our erection depends on the blood supply to the penis. If an individual has a problem with their blood circulation, this may trigger erectile dysfunction. 

Impotence can be caused by any obstruction of blood flow, particularly in older men. Lifestyle changes will support the body’s overall blood flow and keep it safe and sound.

Lifestyle changes to cure ED

This generally requires a considerable amount of passion and commitment. Changes in your lifestyle can improve the efficacy of other treatments while also improving your general health. 

Below are some of the changes which you need to consider implementing in your life.

  • Exercise
  • Healthy Balanced diet
  • Limiting Alcohol
  • Quit Smoking
  • Proper Sleeping Pattern

8. Kegel Exercise

 Kegel exercise for improving erectile dysfunction

The kegel exercise is also referred to as the pelvic floor exercise. These are done to reinforce the pelvic floor muscles. 

Kegel exercise is said to help with erectile dysfunction in some situations. This workout is a fantastic way to get rid of incontinence. These exercises strengthen the pelvic floor, which will boost sexual efficiency. 

Exercises are very straightforward, and you can find directions online or contact your doctor for details. 

The standard routine is to contract the muscle at the bottom of your pelvic section, keep on for three seconds, and then drop.

Please remember, to get good results you need commitment and dedication.

Though, I tried kegel for many months but could not see any effect. So, I advise you to try yourself and check it.

9. Penile Implants


Men with erectile dysfunction (ED) will benefit from penile implants, which are devices that are implanted within the penis to help them get an erection. 

After other ED therapies have failed, penile implants are certainly recommended. Semi-rigid and inflatable penile implants are the two most common types. Each type of penile implant has its own set of benefits and drawbacks. 

The highest level of satisfaction is with implants. It has been discovered that more than 90 percent of patients are pleased with this procedure, which is the highest satisfaction rate of any ED treatment. 

Putting a machine in the penis for the erection is very inconvenient especially if you are young. I don’t recommend this treatment for young men because once you are done with the implant, you will never get a normal erection back.

I thought of going for this treatment many times and thankfully never went for this. Instead, I treated myself permanently with other treatment.

Satisfaction Level – 3.9/4

10. Penis Ring (Cock rings)


A penis ring is a rubber band worn over the erect penis to prevent blood from draining. 

If an individual has venous leaking and can get an erection but not sustain it for the length of time needed for a sexual encounter, this is a great option. 

There are several different types of cock rings available in the market. You need to position these in the penis base immediately after the erection occurs. 

It must not be used for even more than 20 minutes by men since it can harm the penile nerves and trigger priapism. This will severely impact the structure and erection capability of the user.

I tried it many times during intercourse and found it effective. I don’t recommend you to try this because it may further aggravate your ED condition by damaging nerves and blood vessels.

New and advanced erectile dysfunction Treatment

There is no considerable change in the treatments for erectile dysfunction in India in the last twenty years.

However, now is the time to consider something much more effective and a permanent cure for ED. 

These new and enhanced treatment options provide hope to those whose lives have been destroyed by erectile dysfunction, allowing them to resume a happier sexual life. 

Some of the therapies mentioned below are highly advanced and still accessible to the public. while others are still in the stage of development. 

These new therapies could become popular in a few years. Let us begin with our small list.

1. Stem Cell Therapy (Best Treatment for permanent solution)

In stem cell therapy, the individual is injected with stem cells in his penile tissue. 

Stem cells are special cells having the property to turn themselves into any cells. So, injecting stem cell in penis repairs the damaged cells and improve penile tissues.

A lot of researches and studies have been conducted and the results have been very much promising, which is indeed a great indication. 

It has already become a mainstream treatment for erectile dysfunction. 

I am thankful to this treatment for permanently solving my long-standing erectile dysfunction problem. Tried everything for years but nothing worked properly. 

Finally, when I lost all my hope, I considered this therapy as my last choice and it didn’t disappoint me.

This is the best treatment available on the market right now.

2. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection Therapy


PRP therapy, as mentioned above, is very much similar to stem cell therapy. This method involves drawing blood from the veins and centrifuging it to extract the plasma and achieve a high concentration of platelets and growth factors. 

PRP appears to aid the body’s healing cycle and also helps the tissues in the penis better recognize other therapies. 

According to some reports, PRP injections will help increase penis size.  

This device is being marketed as a novel treatment method for ED, but it will likely require further clinical trials and years to become a standard solution.

As per my research, this treatment has to be fully evolved. Currently, it gives relief up to 1 -2 years and again you have to go for therapy. This can be considered if you have mild to moderate ED but again this is not a permanent solution.

3. Shockwave therapy

Penile shockwave therapy is also known as low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy.

Over the years, it has gained a lot of coverage. It has been investigated as a potential remedy for ED caused by vascular disease. 

The low-intensity sound waves are passed through erectile tissue during shockwave therapy. The aim is to increase blood flow and promote the formation of new blood vessels.

The research has been successful and sex experts have been offering this treatment as a cure.

This therapy is recommended for patients with mild ED that too with some conditions. The best thing is that it is a painless procedure. Each treatment session could last 20 to 30 minutes, and there could be multiple sessions every week for 6 to 12 weeks. 

However, there has been a lot of mixed reviews on this treatment. Some clinical trials yielded encouraging results, although others were inconclusive or disappointing.

I had my shockwave therapy in 2016 and it was disappointing. Lost a good number of bucks and got no relief in return. So, choose wisely only if your ED is mild. It can’t work in moderate and severe ED

4. Gene Therapy

It is a technological breakthrough that is still in its early stages.  In clinical studies, it has proven to be very successful.  

Gene therapy, unlike other treatments, includes Nitric Oxide production, which causes relaxation of the smooth muscle and thus leads to an erection. 

This treatment focuses on nitric oxide concentrations and replenishing smooth muscles, blood vessels, and nerves, all of which contribute to ED.

In an experiment trial of phase 1, it was seen that men who failed all the treatments were given gene therapy. They have shown some major signs of healing after the treatment. 

These men did have a very normal sexual function for six months before reverting to their previous state.

Hence, the professionals suggested that two doses per year were adequate for a fulfilling sexual life. This treatment has yet to find its space in mainstream treatment for erectile dysfunction.


I have tried and covered almost all available treatments of erectile dysfunction in India. I have tried most of them and have found them working for me. 

Ensure that you go through all of them and learn more about these therapies to know how they can affect you.

For now, I can suggest you include some lifestyle changes along with proper medication. Apart from this, if you have exhausted all the treatment options and got no relief, then I recommend stem cell therapy since this one has shown some promising results.

Stem cell therapy not just treats the ED on a cellular basis but also cures it completely. I’ve already undergone stem cell therapy for treating my ED and have been successfully cured with continuously following a healthy lifestyle.
