Discreet, Professional Care

The team at HealthQ is here to make opening up about your sex life and possible sexual dysfunction more comfortable and candid. In fact, erectile dysfunction (ED) is quite common, with studies showing it affects approximately a third of people with penises, and may cause significant emotional distress. HealthQ offers discreet, professional care with a team that is passionate about helping people “get beyond” barriers for a healthy, more fulfilled sex life. Our FDA-approved prescription medications for ED help to ensure everything works the way you want it to—when and where the mood takes you.


What is erectile dysfunction (ED)?

Erectile dysfunction is the inability to get or maintain an erection during sexual activity. It happens when the penile erection chambers fail to generate and maintain the high pressures that characterize a fully hard erection. Common contributing factors to ED can be age, high blood pressure, vascular or other diseases, and stress. Usually, sexual stimulation is enough to prompt an erection, but people with ED may have difficulty staying firm through ejaculation.

Can ED medication help?

Yes! FDA-approved ED drugs contain vasodilating PDE5 inhibitors that have been clinically proven to be effective treatments for ED. HealthQ offers both ‘as-needed’ and ‘daily’ prescription ED medications. Our licensed, expert providers will review your medical history and help determine which medication is right for you.

Can I take ED medication if I am on Estrogen?

Yes, ED medication can be taken in conjunction with estrogen, anti-androgen, or progesterone.

What ED treatments are there?

HealthQ offers highly effective as-needed ED medications (Viagra®) and daily ED medications (Cialis®). We are sensitive to the financial constraints associated with health care and can prescribe equivalent lower-cost generic medication options.


Viagra is the most recognized as-needed ED medication and is taken before having sex. Sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra and its generic equivalents, works by relaxing the blood vessels and smooth muscle to improve blood flow to the penis for harder, longer-lasting erections. As-needed ED medications are best if you are able to predict when you’ll have sex, or if you prefer not to take medication every day.


Cialis and its generic equivalent help you get and maintain an erection with a simple, once-daily dosage.
Tadalafil, the active ingredient in these medications remains in your system longer than other ED medications, so you can stay in the moment without the need to carry pills or plan ahead.
