Cialis and Erectile Dysfunction – Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

Reviewed by: Daniel Williams, MD

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a physical problem that affects tens of millions of men, often disrupting their lives and relationships (1,2). Barely half of all men affected ever tell their doctor about the symptoms they’re experiencing (3). This is presumably due to embarrassment or failure to recognize that nuisance symptoms may actually be part of a serious medical condition (4). Fortunately, there are confidential options available for dealing with this health issue through the experienced and trusted staff of Access.Rx.com and its medical associates.

Q: Exactly what is Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?

A: Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a syndrome because it can be caused by a variety of insults. The most common cause is vascular, whereby blood flow to the penis does not make it become harder (an erection) when a man is sexually excited or stimulated, or when a man cannot maintain the erection long enough or sufficiently enough to achieve successful penetration for sexual intercourse. Other causes involve improper nerve function or are psychogenic. The number of men affected at some point in their lives is astounding, with studies suggesting that more than half of all men may experience ED at some point between the ages of 40 and 70 (5).

Q: What causes Erectile Dysfunction

A: The most common cause is vascular, in which imbalances in blood flow to the penis during arousal does not allow sufficient “blood trapping” for the penis to become erect. Psychogenic and nerve problems can also be to blame. ED can also be caused by a number of secondary factors, including other health conditions, stress, use of cigarettes or illegal drugs or alcohol, and emotional issues.

Q: Is there a medical solution to this problem?

A: While there is no cure, the best clinical results have been shown with oral use of medications like Cialis, which requires a prescription. Cialis has been shown to be effective, even in patients with severe ED (6). Cialis has been clinically proven to work for up to 36 hours, making it an ED drug of choice for men who want the option being able to perform when the time is convenient. It also has been proven to start working in as little as 30 minutes for some men.

Q: Will Cialis help prevent pregnancy or the spread of STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases)?

A: No. Cialis serves strictly as an aid to helping achieve an erection. It does not serve as a male form of birth control, and will not help protect a man or his partner from contracting STDs, including HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), the virus that causes AIDS.

Q: Why should I trust Cialis?

A: Cialis is prescribed in more than 100 countries worldwide, and was approved for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2003. So its record of success speaks for itself, as Cialis enters its fifth year as a leading ED medication.
