If you have difficulty sustaining an erection, talk to your doctor about erectile dysfunction (ED). ED affects one in five men and can limit the ability to have sexual intercourse. Many men still have a healthy libido, which leads to embarrassment and other issues surrounding ED. Learn how to receive erectile dysfunction treatment for this common problem.
Do I Have Erectile Dysfunction?
Not everyone experiences ED in the same way. Some men are unable to ejaculate, while others with ED are unable to achieve an erection. The symptoms of ED can vary between these two cases, such as an erection that doesn’t remain during intercourse. Any of these symptoms over time should be discussed with your doctor to see if you can receive treatment for ED.
Causes of Erectile Dysfunction
The causes of ED can vary. Some involve an issue with blood vessels or nerves, while others are an imbalance of hormones. Severe psychological stress can also cause ED.
The most common contributors to ED are pre-existing health conditions and lifestyle choices. If one or more of these apply to you, you are at greater risk of ED:
- Heart disease
- Kidney disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- High blood pressure
- Drinking alcohol
- Use of prescription pills
- High-fat diet
Regardless of the cause, older men are more likely to have ED. Thankfully, ED is treatable at any age.
Types of ED Treatments
There are many treatment options available. Talk to your doctor and discuss the available options. Some other health conditions can be connected to ED, so treatment is important. These are the most common ED treatments, but discuss your options with your doctor to ensure you choose the best erectile dysfunction treatment for your situation:
This innovative technology uses acoustic pulse waves for safe, non-invasive treatment. The treatment can be performed comfortably in an office. 75% of men who choose PulseWave report noticeable results after a single treatment, but it’s recommended in 5-6 sessions, 1-2 per week. Your doctor may recommend combining this treatment with the P-shot to encourage blood vessel growth.
A Platelet Rich Plasma injection can stimulate the regeneration of tissue necessary for increased blood flow. This can help balance the hormonal changes that may have occurred to cause you to lose the ability to sustain or have an erection. This hormonal change usually occurs as you age.
Increased testosterone can restore hormone levels that may have lowered with age. Testosterone is necessary for the blood flow needed to have an erection.
While usually only a temporary fix, some prescription medication can allow you to achieve an erection. This option has varying effectiveness and won’t permanently treat ED.
Penile Implants or Vascular Surgery
For severe cases of ED, your doctor may recommend penile implants or vascular surgery. This extreme option is generally only chosen after other treatment options have been unsuccessful. The success rate is high, so if you have no other alternative, these two methods may be the best solution for you.
