This trial is testing a device that sends electrical pulses to the prostate in order to help improve sexual dysfunction symptoms in men.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for men over the age of 18 who are experiencing sexual dysfunction, including erectile dysfunction, delayed ejaculation, or anorgasmia. It's not suitable for women, men under 18, those unable to operate the device, or men who have had their prostate removed.Check my eligibility

Other Research
Common treatments for sexual dysfunction include phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (such as sildenafil), which work by increasing blood flow to the penis to facilitate erection. Mechanical or electrical stimulation devices, like the prostate stimulation device, aim to enhance sexual function by directly stimulating the prostate, potentially improving blood flow and nerve function. Understanding these mechanisms is crucial for patients as it helps them make informed decisions about their treatment options, ensuring they choose methods that align with their specific physiological needs and conditions.
