Erectile Dysfunction Q & A
What is erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction makes it difficult to get, keep, or maintain an erection for long enough to have sex. Almost every man experiences erectile dysfunction from time-to-time, but if your symptoms persist or get worse, it may point to a more serious underlying health problem.
If you regularly experience erectile difficulties, don’t wait to seek professional medical help. Mr. Knight at Optimal Men’s Center can pinpoint the underlying cause and develop a custom treatment plan.
What are the symptoms of erectile dysfunction?
The most noticeable symptom of erectile dysfunction is trouble getting or keeping an erection. You might also notice a decreased desire to have sex, a condition known as low libido. In some cases, erectile dysfunction occurs alongside other sexual problems like premature or delayed ejaculation.
What causes erectile dysfunction?
Male sexual arousal involves the brain, hormones, nerves, blood vessels, and muscles. Any problem that affects these components can result in erectile dysfunction. You might also experience erectile dysfunction due to stress or a mental illness like depression or anxiety.
Other times, erectile dysfunction occurs due to a problem with your physical health like:
- Heart disease
- Metabolic syndrome
- Parkinson’s disease
- Low testosterone
- Sleep disorders
You’re also more likely to experience erectile dysfunction if you use tobacco or drink alcohol regularly.
Is there any way to lower my risk of erectile dysfunction?
If you want to lower your risk of erectile dysfunction, the team at Optimal Men’s Center recommends living a healthy lifestyle. That includes seeing Mr. Knight for regular checkups, eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and taking steps to reduce stress.
How is erectile dysfunction diagnosed?
Mr. Knight diagnoses erectile dysfunction by conducting a physical exam, reviewing your medical history, and asking about your lifestyle and symptoms. He then orders blood tests, urinalysis, and an ultrasound to determine the level of circulation in your penis.
How is erectile dysfunction treated?
Treatment of erectile dysfunction depends on your age, health history, and the severity of your symptoms. Mr. Knight offers various treatments, including:
- Prescription medication like Cialis® and Viagra®
- Peptide therapy
- Testosterone replacement therapy
- Stem cell therapy for ED
- Trimix injections
Ultimately, the goal of treatment is to minimize the incidence of erectile dysfunction and to restore your libido and sexual life.
