Erectile Dysfunction Myths & Facts

Myth Erectile Dysfunction should be accepted as a natural part of the aging process.
Fact While ED is more common in older men, it is not a normal part of the aging process and should be viewed as a medical problem that requires a medical solution. Just as you would not leave high blood pressure untreated as you age, ED and its effects on the body should not be ignored. Boston Medical Group physicians have treated a wide range of patients over the past 10 years, with our oldest patient to date being 98 years old.
Myth Men should not worry about Erectile Dysfunction if they are under 40 years old.
Fact While ED is more common in older men, it can affect men of all ages. This is becoming increasingly true as younger men are developing medical conditions that can contribute to ED such as diabetes, high-blood pressure, and heart conditions.
Myth Oral Medications are the most effective way to treat Erectile Dysfunction.
Fact While oral medications work for many men, others do not see the results they expect. If you are one of those men, you’re not alone. You should consider talking to a Boston Medical Group physician about other available options.
Myth There are limited treatment options for men with medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood-pressure, or heart conditions.
Fact While men with certain medical conditions should avoid oral medications and pills, Boston Medical Group physicians have treatments that can help. Our treatments are non-systemic, so they will not aggravate existing medical conditions or interfere with any medications for them. Men with these types of conditions frequently visit our doctors and are successful with the treatments.

Fact Most often, Boston Medical Group physicians require only one visit before you can begin the treatment program. Our comprehensive approach can determine the most effective treatment options for you during this single, two hour consultation.

Fact Boston Medical Group physicians see many men who are referred to them by their primary care doctors. The physicians are highly experienced and use The Boston Method®, a proprietary treatment process, which has shown results to thousands of men.
Myth Erectile Dysfunction only affects the man.
Fact ED often causes feelings of inadequacy, frustration, and low self-esteem, and can ultimately lead to depression or aggressiveness. As a result, personal, family and business relationships may also be adversely affected if it is left untreated.
