Understanding Erectile Dysfunction
Although many men may feel hesitant to speak to a professional about erectile dysfunction, it is one of the most common forms of sexual dysfunction. This condition causes men trouble with getting or keeping an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Men with this condition experience decreased blood flow to the penis and may also experience reduced sexual desire.
While having erectile issues once in a while is not necessarily a cause for concern, ongoing issues can be. Erectile dysfunction can occur as a result of problems at any stage of the erection process. Once the condition progresses and regularly interferes in a man’s life, it is beneficial to seek treatment. Without the proper diagnosis and treatment, it can cause relationship and intimacy issues and adversely affect self-confidence.
Erectile Dysfunction Risk Factors
Various factors can increase a man’s risk of developing erectile dysfunction. One of the main risk factors for this condition is increasing age. As men get older, they often find it more difficult to get or maintain an erection due to decreasing testosterone levels or underlying health issues.
Additional risk factors for this condition include:
- Being overweight or obese
- Cardiovascular disease
- Certain medications or medical treatments
- Drugs or tobacco products
- Excess alcohol consumption
- Injury or surgery on the pelvic area
Research suggests that addressing modifiable risk factors can not only help prevent this issue but also improve overall health in many patients. Some ways to modify risk factors include losing weight, ceasing smoking, and engaging in more physical activity.
Physical and Emotional Causes of Erectile Dysfunction
Male sexual arousal involves hormones, emotions, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, and the brain. Issues with any of these aspects can result in erectile dysfunction. Physical causes account for over 90% of cases. Some possible physical causes may include the inability to keep the blood trapped in the penis for an erection, insufficient blood flow to the penis, nerve signals that do not reach the penis, or side effects of certain medications.
Since the body and mind are integral parts of sexual intercourse, emotional issues can cause or worsen this condition. Psychological causes can play a role in causing the physical events that lead to an erection. Depression, anxiety, relationship conflicts, anxiety about sexual performance, and stress can cause or compound ED.
Diagnosing Erectile Dysfunction
The first step toward receiving the right treatment is getting a proper diagnosis. Our team conducts comprehensive examinations to determine which of the possible underlying causes is creating the patient’s condition. Since erectile dysfunction can occur due to one factor or several of them, it is important to receive a comprehensive examination to rule out or determine all the underlying causes.
Tests for underlying conditions may include physical and psychological examinations. The diagnosis process can include ultrasounds, test doses of certain medications, and screenings for depression and other psychological causes. Taking blood tests allows us to check for signs of heart disease, diabetes, low testosterone levels, and other health conditions that can contribute to erectile dysfunction. Determining the root cause allows our team to develop the appropriate treatment plan for optimal results.
The right erectile dysfunction treatment will vary for each patient and the underlying cause of their condition. Our team at Simply Men’s Health offers various treatment options to help men get the help they deserve. Some options include RejuvaWAVE® ED shockwave therapy, Priapus shot®, Trimix formulas, and testosterone replacement therapy. We also offer neuro-quantum therapy for patients who have erectile dysfunction with an emotional cause.
RejuvaWAVE shockwave therapy utilizes low-intensity acoustic sound waves to regenerate penile tissue and restore blood flow to restore sexual vitality. The Priapus shot uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which contains concentrated healing and growth factors that help break up scar tissue, regenerate new blood vessels, and rejuvenate the penis. We also offer customized Trimix injections for accelerated results so that patients can engage in satisfactory sexual intercourse after only one appointment. Additionally, patients can receive testosterone replacement therapy. Although this treatment does not resolve erectile dysfunction, it can improve a patient’s libido and aid in tissue regeneration.
