Behavioral Sciences Research Center, Baqiyatallah University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran


Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a very important health issue that has a significant negative impact on the quality of life and life satisfaction of both the affected individual and his partner worldwide. Recently, advances in basic sciences have been instrumental in the evolution of the male sexual health treatment paradigm from a psychosexual model to a new model, which includes oral and intracavernosal injection pharmacotherapy, vacuum constriction devices, and penile prostheses for the treatment of ED. This progress has coincided with an increased understanding of the nature of male sexual health problems. Epidemiological data confirming these problems are widely prevalent and reveal the source of considerable morbidity, both for individuals and within relationships. In this research we have investigated the updated treatments and
the recent studies about ED.
