How can Boots help men with erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, is the inability to get or maintain an erection. It can be caused by a number of things, including stress-related issues, lifestyle choices or other medical problems.

Many men have problems getting an erection at some stage in their life. It’s thought to be very common, particularly in men aged over 40, but it can often be treated.

If you think you may be living with erectile dysfunction, we have a range of prescription-only and over-the-counter treatments that could help. We’ll always check whether the medicines we have available are suitable for you following a quick and discreet consultation – online or in-store. 

Erectile Dysfunction Online Clinic

Our Erectile Dysfunction Online Clinic provides convenient access to ED treatment without a visit to your GP. The clinic allows men to choose between different medicines which may help couples living with impotence to enjoy sex again. If treatment is suitable for you, we’ll have your medicine ready for collection or free home delivery within two working days. Prices start from £10.* 

Viagra Connect

Viagra Connect is the first erectile dysfunction treatment in the UK which can be bought online or in store without the need for a prescription.* It worked for 74 percent of men who were given the drug in a clinical trial. Viagra Connect 50mg is available in packs of four tablets or eight tablets. You can buy the ‘blue pill’  online or in store following a short consultation to check the drug is suitable for you.

What’s the difference between using the Boots ED Online Clinic and Viagra Connect?

No prescription is needed for Viagra Connect, which means you can buy the treatment online at or in store. Our online clinic offers a wider range of ED medicines. The different options may work in different ways, have different strengths or suit certain lifestyles. If you’re unsure about which treatment option to choose, please speak to one of our in-store pharmacists for a confidential chat.
