If the doctor makes sure that the state of disability is mainly organic, and the patient lives in return for a stable marital and psychological life, then he begins to treat the organic problem, through drugs and sexual stimulants, which are sold in pharmacies and medical centers such as Viagra, and Levitra .. to reach as a last resort for a surgical operation during which an erection device is implanted. artificial.
On this, Dr. Fakhr El Din Obaid, a venereal disease specialist, says, "The treatment varies according to the cause of impotence. If it is a person over the age of fifty, then it is often due to a lack of testosterone hormones, and in this case the hormone is injected to the sick person, and if he is young, Viagra is prescribed to gain time and to The patient-partner relationship is not affected. "

It can also be resorted to using an ointment for the male sexual organ to help with erection, which does not have side effects such as medication, or the use of the steroid vaccine directly on it. In the event that these drugs fail, the organ is injected directly with steroids to erect during sexual intercourse.
In other stages, if the patient does not respond to these drugs, therapeutic devices such as "vacuum" are resorted to, which is a device that deflates the air in a mechanical way that helps draw blood into the penis and thus erection.
In a final stage, the doctor resorts to the surgery to implant an artificial erection device inside the penis, and there are two types, including: implantation of a silicone support inside the penis, which is the least aesthetic, and secondly, a pump can be implanted, which is a mechanism that is placed between the testicles in the scrotum.
Although these operations are expensive and may cost more than 5,000 euros, their success is not guaranteed and may cause bacterial infection, according to Dr. Fakhr El-Din Obaid.

2- The role of a psychiatrist or sexual specialist:

The sexual specialist can suggest to the patient various treatment methods, including simple advice or long-term psychological treatment sessions, or prescribe appropriate drugs, and the specialist can combine the two partners in psychological treatment sessions to research the psychological causes that may be the cause of the state of disability.

Dr. Georges Preval, a specialist in sex, emphasized that psychological factors and problems of modern society are among the most important causes of the phenomenon of impotence.

One of the most important methods that a psychiatrist or a sexual specialist relies on in treating impotence is to change the lifestyle of the spouses.
