Abstract

There is a well-known link between treatment for lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and erectile dysfunction. Surgical and medical management of LUTS all have side effect profiles which may affect erectile dysfunction, ejaculatory dysfunction, or libido. These should be taken into consideration during patient counseling. This article reviews the common side effects of the medical and surgical treatments of LUTS.
