Thank you for the additional information.

There are two major aspects to address when a man is having difficulty in achieving full erections - trying to identify the cause and interventions to help improve erections.

There are many possible causes of difficulty in achieving full erections, but the evaluation is mostly focused on those problems that can be directly treated. The most common cause of difficulty with erections is from poor blood supply, but this is not easily corrected. From the perspective of an evaluation, it is important to identify risk factors for poor blood supply, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and smoking, as well as other problems that can affect erections, such as low testosterone levels. There also are certain mental health issues that can affect erections, such as depression.

As for interventions to help the erections, it would be important to consider treatment for any condition identified in the above evaluation. However, there also are medicines that have been shown to help with erections regardless of the cause of difficulty with erections, such as Viagra and Cialis. These medicines have become the primary treatment for erectile dysfunction, particularly when there is no direct treatment of the underlying cause. There are other interventions that can also be considered, such as a vacuum pump or medicines inserted or injected directly into the penis, but these other treatments are usually only considered if the pills are ineffective.

If I can provide any further information, please let me know.
