Information & Advice


Erectile dysfunction

We understand how important physical intimacy can be, and that erection problems are difficult to talk about. Fortunately, there are options that may help.

If you suffer from erection problems then you're not alone. Many men have problems getting an erection at some point in their lives and more than half of all men aged between 40 and 70 will experience some degree of erectile dysfunction (ED).

It's only normal to feel worried and anxious about ED. Your relationship with your partner may be under pressure and you can lose confidence. However the good news is Boots can help.

The Erectile Dysfunction Clinic is available in 35 Boots stores nationwide. It is available for men over 30 and up to 65 years of age. You'll be able to have a confidential chat with one of our ED trained pharmacists to see how we can help you.

What happens at the Erectile Dysfunction Clinic?

The Erectile Dysfunction Clinic gives you an opportunity to have a one-to-one conversation with a pharmacist trained in erectile dysfunction to see how they can help you. To find the nearest store to you which offers the Erectile Dysfunction Clinic check our handy store finder.

Here's what will happen:

  • You'll book an appointment for an initial, confidential consultation with a trained ED Boots pharmacist.
  • The pharmacist will check your blood pressure, heart rate, total cholesterol, random glucose measurement, waist measurement and body mass index (BMI) to check your general health. You may be asked to return for a fasting blood glucose test.
  • If this service is suitable for you, you can be supplied with the appropriate medication (subject to stock availability).
  • You'll be able to access repeat supplies of your medicine, by booking further appointments with your ED trained pharmacist.

What medication will I be given at the Erectile Dysfunction Clinic?

The only prescription ED medication we offer at the Boots Erectile Dysfunction Clinic is Sildenafil.

What causes ED?

ED can be caused by a number of different things including:

  • Medical conditions such as diabetes, disease of the heart and blood vessels and Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
  • An injury to the spine, especially if cause nerve damage.
  • An unhealthy lifestyle, for example, smoking, drinking too much, being overweight and not getting enough exercise can put you at risk.
  • ED can also be brought on by anxiety, worry, stress and depression.

Remember that your ED-trained Boots pharmacist is always available to talk to you and give you any advice or help that you may need.
