Conditions: Erectile Dysfunction

Diagnosing Erectile Dysfunction

Introduction

The diagnosis of ED is fairly easy. Determining why ED is occurring, on the other hand, can be more difficult. To accurately identify why a patient is suffering from ED, a medical professional will usually conduct a comprehensive patient interview, followed by a physical examination, and possibly laboratory testing.

The interview may include the following types of questions:

  • Questions relating to the specific erectile complaint
  • Questions relating to medical factors that could be contributing to ED
  • Questions relating to psychosocial factors that could be contributing to ED
  • Questions relating to prior evaluation or treatment
