What Causes ED?
Erectile dysfunction (impotence) is the inability to get and keep an erection firm enough for sex.
Having erection trouble from time to time isn’t necessarily a cause for concern. If erectile dysfunction is an ongoing issue, however, it can cause stress, affect your self-confidence and contribute to relationship problems. Problems getting or keeping an erection can also be a sign of an underlying health condition that needs treatment and a risk factor for heart disease.
Can it be treated?
Yes. ED medication interferes with the breakdown of chemicals required to obtain and maintain an erection. This interference keeps more of those chemicals in action longer, improving the ability to get and maintain an erection.

Viagra’s FDA approved prescribing information claims that “82% of patients reported an improvement in their erections.” Other PDE-5 inhibitors (Cialis, Levitra) showed similar results.
Oral ED medication is generally considered extremely effective and studies show it works on the majority of men. But ED medication doesn’t work for everyone. It’s important to note that everyone’s reaction to a medication is unique.
Your Mahimo physician may recommend trying the medication multiple times under different circumstances. They may also increase your dose, depending on your reaction to the medication and any side effects. If you’ve been prescribed ED medication on the Mohimo platform, please contact a physician on your account page if you have any questions.
If you’re measuring your blood pressure at home, make sure the device has been “clinically validated.” You can purchase a device online or at your local pharmacy. We recommend an upper arm cuff over a wrist or finger blood pressure monitor.
Before taking your blood pressure, it’s important to avoid the following factors that may cause your blood pressure to temporarily rise:
- Cold temperatures
- Certain medications (check the label on your device)
When you’re ready, find a quiet place and sit for 5-10 minutes. Make sure you’re relaxed and have recently urinated (a full bladder can affect your reading). Roll up your sleeve so that your arm is bare. Apply the cuff on your upper arm and following the directions on the device. Please make sure to take at least two readings. Enter the higher of the two readings during your online dynamic visit.
Oral ED medications are extremely effective, but they don’t work for everyone.
Other treatment options for ED include lifestyle improvements (like exercise, diet, quitting smoking, and limiting alcohol use), surgery, penile vacuum pumps, and other ED medications. Every treatment comes with risks and benefits that you should fully understand before moving forward with any treatment plan.
Currently, the only erectile dysfunction treatment we offer are oral PDE-5 inhibitors in the form of:
- Sildenafil (Viagra)
- Tadalafil (Cialis)
If you’d like to pursue alternative ED treatment, we recommend speaking with a physician in-person. Contact our team at [email protected] and we can recommend a doctor in your area.
Yes, in most cases. Erectile dysfunction can be diagnosed by a physician based on patient self-reporting symptoms and medical history.
Physicians on the Mahimo platform use telemedicine technologies to diagnose ED in the same way they diagnose patients in-person. Doctors ask you questions to evaluate your symptoms and make sure it’s safe and appropriate to prescribe ED medication. The physicians on the Mahimo platform use your answers to diagnose your condition and create a treatment plan. That’s why it’s vital you answer each question to the best of your knowledge and ensure that every communication with your physician is truthful, accurate, and thorough.
Your blood pressure is an important part of determining whether it’s safe for you to take ED medication. It can be dangerous to take ED medication if your blood pressure is above or below a certain value.
To complete a comprehensive medical history during your online visit, you need to enter your most recent blood pressure reading within the last 6 months. If you haven’t had your blood pressure taken within the last 6 months, you can get a free blood pressure reading at thousands of locations across the country.
