Answer

With a combination of methods, including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) therapy, improvement or cure should be possible in most cases, provided that the couple (not just the man) is committed to working on the problem together. Numerous published reports also indicate that counseling and medical therapy can help achieve success rates as high as 85%, matching the high rates originally reported by Masters and Johnson.
