Most men will experience erectile dysfunction (ED) at some point in their lives (either as a one-off or recurrent problem). It can often be a natural part of the ageing process. While there are a number of different causes for ED, in most cases it is due to a reduced blood flow to the penis when aroused.

There are many medicines which have been designed to help improve this. It’s important to bear in mind, however, that ED could also be a symptom of health conditions that affect your blood vessels and heart such as high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. 

We always recommend that you have a health check to rule out the possibility of your ED being related to a more serious underlying health condition.

Oral Contraception

Birth control pills are used to prevent pregnancy.

Estrogen and progestin are two female sex hormones. Combinations of estrogen and progestin work by preventing ovulation (the release of eggs from the ovaries). They also change the lining of the uterus (womb) to prevent pregnancy from developing and change the mucus at the cervix (opening of the uterus) to prevent sperm (male reproductive cells) from entering.

Some brands of oral contraceptives are also used to treat acne in certain patients. Oral contraceptives treat acne by decreasing the amounts of certain natural substances that can cause acne.

Some oral contraceptives are also used to relieve the symptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (physical and emotional symptoms that occur before the menstrual period each month).

Please ask our pharmacist for more details and the costs for this treatment.
