If you are one of those millions of men in the United States whose erection problem keeps happening, it’s high time you should visit an erectile dysfunction clinic to enjoy satisfactory intercourse and get treated for ED once and for all.
Let’s talk about what will happen at an erectile dysfunction (ED) clinic and where you can go for excellent sexual-health-related treatments.
What Happens at an ED Clinic?
When you get into an ED clinic, your doctor will make you feel comfortable by asking a few questions about your lifestyle, relationship, and overall health and wellbeing. Your ED doctor will diagnose your ED and investigate its cause by:
Taking Your Medical and Sexual Function History.
This will help your doctor know certain conditions or diseases that contribute to your erectile dysfunction and help distinguish among problems with sexual desire, ejaculation, erection, and orgasm.
Performing a Physical Exam.
Your ED doctor will look for problems with your nervous system if your penis doesn’t respond to touch, secondary sexual characteristics that can point towards hormonal problems, circulatory problems, and unusual penis characteristics, which can be the reason for your impotence.
Ordering Lab Tests.
Lab tests like blood tests, urinalysis, lipid profile, thyroid function tests, and measurements of testosterone, creatinine, and liver enzymes also diagnose your ED and reveal its cause. Imaging tests, such as ultrasound, can also be ordered.
After this initial investigation and exam, your ED doctor will state the cause of your ED, which could be one of the following:
- Vascular diseases like atherosclerosis can narrow or block the blood supply to the penis
- A neurological disorder in which nerves sending an impulse to the penis gets damaged by diabetes, stroke, or other cause
- Psychological states like depression, stress, and lack of brain stimulus
- Trauma or injury that can lead to ED
- Certain medications, such as anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications, blood pressure medications, glaucoma eye drops, and cancer chemotherapy agents
How Is Erectile Dysfunction Treated at an ED Clinic?
ED treatments vary depending on the cause. A few of the most innovative and nonsurgical ED treatments offered at our ED clinic include:
Gainswave® Shockwave Therapy – also known as low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LI-ESWT). This therapy uses the sound waves emitted from a handheld device that your ED doctor moves along your penis. These sound waves painlessly penetrate the penis and break the plaques, which help improve the blood flow and treat ED.
Penis Pumps –also known as vacuum erection devices, consist of a hollow tube and power-operated pump. When the hollow tube is placed over the penis, the pump sucks out the air inside the tube and creates a vacuum that pulls blood into your penis. When the penis is erected due to blood flow, a constriction ring is slipped around the penis base that helps hold the blood in the penis and keeps it erect for satisfactory intercourse.
P-Shots –uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is injected into each side of your penis shaft and in the penis head to stimulate the growth of new tissues.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy –when low T is the cause of your ED, your doctor recommends testosterone replacement therapy to bring the level of testosterone to the normal range.
You will be asked to visit for follow-up appointments to ensure that the treatment is working fine to treat your erectile dysfunction and you have a healthy romantic life.
