Mayo Clinic Minute: Don't get tricked into bogus erectile dysfunction treatments

Roughly 50 percent of men will experience it at some point, but zero percent of men want to talk about erectile dysfunction.

Dr. Tobias Kohler, a Mayo Clinic sexual health expert, says there are excellent treatments available, but too often he sees patients waste hundreds or even thousands of dollars on so-called natural remedies or “magical” cures that do absolutely nothing to help the problem.

Instead, Dr. Kohler says just talk to your health care provider who can give you a scientifically proven treatment that may even be covered by insurance and who can also help treat whatever’s causing erectile dysfunction.
