According to the AUA guidelines, men who have symptoms of erectile dysfunction should undergo a thorough medical, sexual, and psychosocial history; a physical examination; and selective laboratory testing. Men with erectile dysfunction should also undergo morning serum total testosterone measurement.

The AUA suggests that men with erectile dysfunction should be informed about several treatment options, including a PDE5i, vacuum erection device, intraurethral alprostadil, intracavernosal injections, and penile prosthesis implantation.
