Can you have sex after receiving shock waves?
There is not the slightest inconvenience for the man who undergoes shock wave therapy for erectile dysfunction, to have to take sexual abstinence because the treatment is non-invasive and does not generate inflammatory effects of any kind. Sex life can continue without problems.
Is shock wave treatment painful? Could it leave me any negative after-effects?

This treatment is totally painless, so much so that it does not require the patient to receive anaesthetics or painkillers. The risks of complications are very small and are not a major concern. 

However, the patient must be monitored by the physician throughout the treatment.

How soon can I see the positive effects of the treatment?
It is estimated that improvement in erectile function may be evident within three to five months after the start of treatment. This time may vary from patient to patient. If you do not perceive any positive effect, most probably the mistake has been made by your doctor, who will have indicated it without taking into account the type of erectile dysfunction you present.
Can I take sildenafil (Viagra®) after receiving ED shock waves?
Yes. In fact, shock wave therapy increases the effectiveness of shock waves according to certain scientific studies. No contraindications or adverse effects have been reported.
