When to see a doctor

A family doctor is a good place to start when you have erectile problems. See your doctor if:

  • Erectile or other sexual problems are an issue for you or your partner
  • You have diabetes, heart disease or another known health problem that may be linked to erectile dysfunction
  • You have other symptoms along with erectile dysfunction that may not seem related
