Erectile DysfunctionSpring, TX
While people cannot reverse the aging process as time passes by, they do not have to let age hinder their quality of life. With multiple health issues, aging can only exacerbate symptoms. One such issue that many men struggle with as they age is erectile dysfunction. This condition causes the inability to get and maintain an erection for the duration of sexual intercourse.
Diagnosing Erectile Dysfunction
Many men will keep this issue to themselves and avoid seeking treatment out of embarrassment or fear. The reality is that there are effective remedies and treatments to help with this condition so a patient can live life to the fullest. As a wellness center, we value all aspects of one’s health including sexual health.
If you are struggling with erectile dysfunction and are interested in possible treatment options with long-lasting results, then our team of professionals can help you.
Since there are multiple causes for erectile dysfunction besides aging, professional medical treatment can have a greater effect than over-the-counter medications at the store. While some people may be content to continue using medications that only allow a man to maintain an erection for a specific amount of time, other people want a more effective solution.
Signs and symptoms of erectile dysfunction can include:
- Difficulty getting an erection
- Difficulty maintaining an erection
- A noticeable decrease in sexual desire
- Low self-esteem
- Depression and low self-confidence
- Distress at feeling inadequate in the bedroom
Our treatment can help with the dysfunction, which can also help the man deal with some of the feelings of inadequacy and low self-esteem. However, there are other health conditions that can lead to erectile dysfunction that include diabetes, cardiovascular disease, excessive drug or alcohol use, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or even a lack of physical exercise.
Due to this, part of our treatment will include a medical examination to determine if there are any other health problems that may be causing the erectile dysfunction. In fact, there are also emotional causes of loss in sexual desire and erectile dysfunction including conditions such as depression, anxiety and excessive stress.
Understanding Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction involves a lack of blood flow into the penis, making it difficult or even impossible for the body to maintain an erection. In other cases, the penis will not be able to trap blood in the penis in order to maintain an erection. While one or two instances of erectile dysfunction after a man reaches his 50s is not too much of a cause for alarm, repeated instances can be a sign of an issue.
If the patient is struggling with repeated instances of erectile dysfunction, then professional treatment is the most effective option. Store-bought medications claiming to help with this issue may only provide temporary relief or not offer any significant change at all. Other people may have negative reactions to a store-bought medication or increase their chance of certain health risks.
Erectile Dysfunction Treatment
Treatment for erectile dysfunction will vary per patient. During the initial consultation, we will review the patient’s medical history, current condition, allergies and any other pertinent information we need to know. By gathering this information, we can begin to test for any other concerns that may be causing the dysfunction.
If the patient does have erectile dysfunction, then we will consider various treatment options. What people may not realize about erectile dysfunction treatment is that much of it can take place from the comfort of the patient’s home. While there may need to be follow-up appointments to ensure everything is going smoothly, the patient will not necessarily need to visit our practice for each treatment.
Treatment options for erectile dysfunction include:
- Oral medications
- Self-Injection medications
- Penis pumps
- Hormone replacement
- Low testosterone treatment
With oral medications, the patient will take the prescribed amount, which will enhance the effects of nitric oxide to help relax the muscles in the penis. This will help to enhance blood flow and allows the patient to get an erection. Medication by injection will involve the patient injecting the medication into the side of the penis with a fine needle. This injection can promote an erection that lasts more than an hour.
If the patient notices any side-effects or changes in their health after taking the medication and they have concerns, then they can schedule a follow-up appointment.
