  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Hormonal problems such as low testosterone 

Physical exam Expect a physical exam, where your doctor will:

• listen to your heart and lungs

• check your blood pressure

• examine your testicles and penis

Psychosocial history Your doctor will ask you questions or request that you fill out a questionnaire about your symptoms, health history, and sexual history. The responses can help them evaluate the severity of your ED. Some questions that they may ask include:

• How long have you been experiencing ED? Did it come on suddenly or gradually?

• Are you having any problems with feeling sexual desire, ejaculating, or reaching orgasm?

• How often do you have sex? Has this frequency changed recently?

•How firm are your erections? Is this affected by particular situations or types of stimulation?

• Do you wake up in the morning or in the middle of the night with erections?

• How’s your current relationship? What expectations do you and your partner have for each other? Have there been any changes?

• Have you recently been experiencing a lot of stress?

• What medications are you currently taking? Do you use tobacco, alcohol, or nonprescription drugs?

• Do you have any underlying conditions or have you had any surgery on or injury to your pelvic area?

Injection Test

An injection test is also called an intracavernosal test.

medication is injected into the base of your penis by your doctor, which should cause you to get an erection.  You can have problem with blood flow to your penis if you don’t receive one.


Doppler ultrasound is another way to check blood flow to the penis. It may be used along with the injection test.

Your doctor takes a device that looks like a wand and holds it over your penis. It uses sound waves to create a video of your blood vessels so your doctor can look at blood flow.
