What options are available for erectile dysfunction treatment?

Erectile dysfunction is a common condition that affects men of all ages. While it can be a embarrassing topic to discuss, it is important to know that there are treatments available. These include:

  • Oral medications: These are typically the first line of treatment for erectile dysfunction. Oral medications such as Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra all work to improve blood flow to the penis, making it easier to achieve and maintain an erection.
  • Injections: If oral medications are not effective, injections can be an option. Injections into the penis can help to increase blood flow and produce an erection.
  • Vacuum devices: This treatment option involves using a machine to create a vacuum around the penis. This vacuum helps to draw blood into the penis, resulting in an erection.
  • Surgery: In some cases, surgery may be necessary to treat erectile dysfunction. Surgery is typically only recommended if other treatment options have not been effective.

Meet Melissa MacCalla

Medicare is not simple and can be hard, frustrating, and downright confusing for most. I love when I get someone on the phone and I am given the opportunity to explain the difference in plans to them and have Medicare make sense. I enjoy talking to clients year after year, hearing about their families growing or them asking about mine.

-Melissa

Oh my gosh!! I was so confused about the Medicare Supplement process. I am turning 65 soon and am retired and have always had insurance thru my former employer. I didn’t know a thing about going on Medicare and was struggling to sort it all out.

A friend of mine recommended contacting Senior HealthCare Solutions, so I did. Melissa was FANTASTIC!! She was professional, responsive, caring and friendly. She explained the steps I needed to take, gathered my information, helped me choose good plans for MY specific needs and took care of my applications over the phone. 1-2-3, eesy-peesy and I was done!! And it didn’t cost me a DIME!!! WOW!!! I HIGHLY recommend Senior Healthcare Solutions for anyone who’s overwhelmed with making the right choices with Medicare Supplemental Insurance and Rx coverage. It’ll take a load off your mind!
