Can hormone therapy be used to treat erectile dysfunction?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

Hormone therapy may be used to treat some cases of erectile dysfunction that are caused by low hormone levels. Several genetic conditions may lead to low levels of testosterone, which can lead to erection problems. In those cases, testosterone supplements may be taken to replace the lack of hormones produced naturally by the body. Supplements are available in many forms, including patches, injections, and topical creams. Talk to your doctor to find out if hormone therapy is a good treatment method for your erectile dysfunction.
