Sexy time is meant to be sexy. Nobody has time for bad sexy time—even if they have all the time in the world. So when there’s trouble between the sheets, it may be time to see a doctor.
That said, there are few things more uncomfortable than talking to a doctor about erectile dysfunction. Actually, just one thing – picking up an ED prescription and catching a raised eyebrow and a soft smile from the pharmacist. That type of cringe-worthy moment is almost so unbearable that it can even deter some people from seeking the help they need. Well, at least until now.
Meet Hims, a telehealth platform that caters specifically to men’s health needs. They’ve removed the typical barriers to treatment by allowing patients to digitally consult with licensed physicians from the comfort of their home, which means they don’t have to worry about physical accessibility, affordability, and social stigmas.
A quick, free consultation with a doctor helps determine which prescription is best to treat each individual patient. Because every person has different needs, Hims offers an assortment of ED treatment options to choose from. Here’s what to expect:
Step 1: Start The Free Consultation
The process to start ED treatment is straightforward. Just go to this page on Hims’ website and click Start My Free Visit to match with a doctor and begin your consultation.
Step 2: Answer Health Questions
Next you’ll be given a consent form that describes what you’re getting into. It also explains that your consultation will not be a face to face doctor visit. Then, you’ll answer a brief, yet comprehensive questionnaire that delves into your personal health history. This includes questions about your libido, blood pressure, and physical health, to name a few.
Step 3: Choose Your Preferred Treatment Option
After the questionnaire, Hims will provide an assortment of treatment options to choose from. Just like any prescription, a licensed physician will review your health history and need for treatment before any prescription is cleared.
Step 4: Confirm Identity and Checkout
Next you’ll be asked to confirm your identity. This includes uploading a picture of your face and a government-issued identification card. From there, you’ll just need to enter your credit card information to complete the checkout process.
Step 5: Wait for approval
Now all you have to do is wait! Your doctor will review your medical history and decide if the treatment option requested makes sense given your health background information, and if not, they’ll suggest other options that may be a better fit. Usually, you’ll get a response that same day, but this step can take up to two business days.
Step 6: Receive Treatment in the Mail
After the doctor has approved your treatment plan and prescription, it’s shipped out and delivered to your door in discreet packaging. And there you have it! Hims has managed to transform one of life’s most uncomfortable interactions into a process as simple as placing an order online.
Hims is a public company, and it’s one of the most trusted in the telehealth space. They’ve been featured in publications such as the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Business Insider, The Verge, Healthline, Men’s Health…the list goes on. Using Hims to treat ED is quick, convenient, and affordable. To get started today, head to their website to begin your consultation.
