Is Prostate Massage Therapy an Effective Treatment for ED?

I’ve been taking Viagra or its generic equivalent to overcome my symptoms of erectile dysfunction. Pills aren’t really working as well for me as they did when I first started taking them. Now what?

Question:

For the last two and a half years, I’ve been taking Viagra or its generic equivalent to overcome my symptoms of erectile dysfunction. However, in the last couple of weeks, I’ve found that the pills aren’t really working as well for me as they did when I first started taking them.

A friend who’s also struggling with impotence issues said he’s heard that prostate massage helps some men with ED.

    Answer:

    Although prostatic massage therapy was once used as primary treatment before the introduction of Viagra and other oral ED drugs, its effectiveness, if any, is based more on anecdotal reports than on actual clinical evidence.

     

    It remains an adjunctive therapy for some men who aren’t getting the desired results from oral ED drugs. In addition to direct massage of the prostate gland itself, this form of therapy includes massage of other muscles in the groin area.

     

    For men, whose ability to get and keep an erection may in part be traced to stress-driven anxiety, the relaxation produced by this form of massage could make it easier for them to get the job done. However, its value as a first-line treatment is questionable.
