Erectile Dysfunction Q&A
What is erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common but frustrating sexual problem many men face. It occurs when you can’t get or keep strong enough erections to have satisfactory sexual intercourse with your partner. ED can negatively affect you and your partner’s sexual enjoyment and your self-confidence. Fortunately, Gents Doctor offers numerous effective ED treatments.
What are the risk factors for ED?
Erectile dysfunction is commonly caused by poor blood flow, though psychological factors can also play a role in its development. ED risk factors include:
- Overweight or obesity
- Heart conditions
- Tobacco use
- Radiation or other medical treatments
- Stress, depression, and anxiety
- Certain medications
- Drug or excessive alcohol use
If erectile dysfunction negatively affects your life and causes problems with your intimate relationships, see the Gents Doctor team for an evaluation. They discuss your symptoms, medical history, and preferences to develop a personalized ED treatment plan.
What are my ED treatment options?
There are numerous erectile dysfunction treatments available at Gents Doctor. Your provider might recommend one of the following:
Shock Wave Therapy
Shock Wave Therapy treatment addresses poor blood flow associated with erectile dysfunction. During the procedure, your provider uses a handheld device to apply low-intensity sound waves to your penis to stimulate blood flow. They can numb the treatment area to optimize comfort.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP, sourced from your blood, stimulates penis tissue regeneration using natural blood cells and growth factors. PRP injections help improve penis sensitivity, girth, and erection strength. Your provider takes a sample of blood from your arm, uses a centrifuge to isolate PRP from the rest of your blood, and injects it into your penis. They first numb the treatment area.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)
BHRT uses hormones identical to those in your body to increase testosterone levels, improve your libido, and reduce erectile dysfunction. During hormone replacement therapy, your doctor might recommend patches, injections, creams, gels, or pellets placed under the skin to stabilize hormone levels and improve sexual performance.
