Contrary to what you might think, erectile dysfunction (ED) isn’t just a problem of older men: it can also affect those in their 20s and 30s. In fact, a 2013 study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine estimates that 1 in 4 men under 40 years old have erectile dysfunction.
If you’re one of those younger men who are struggling with an unfulfilling sex life because of erectile dysfunction, you want to know if your problem is permanent or reversible.
Many cases of ED can be reversed. It’s worth mentioning, however, that ED can point to an underlying medical problem, such as cardiovascular disease—one of the main culprits in ED in younger men. In such case, your doctor will likely give you dietary and lifestyle recommendations, in addition to your standard treatment, to improve your cardiovascular health and ultimately restore your sexual function.
If you’re otherwise healthy and determined that neither medications nor surgery is an option for you, turn to our men’s health experts here at NIVA Men’s Health. Our providers pride themselves on the nondrug, innovative, and highly effective solutions they offer for erectile dysfunction. Outlined below are a few of them.
A penis pump consists of three things: a plastic tube; a hand- or battery-powered pump, which is attached to the tube; and a band that fits around the base of your penis once you achieve an erection (a constriction ring).
The device encourages blood to flow into your penis by creating a vacuum inside the tube. This helps you achieve an erection. Once your penis is erect, you slip the rubber constriction ring at its base to keep the blood inside and maintain the erection.
Also known as P-Shot, Man Shot is a safe, all-natural sexual rejuvenation procedure, during which our men’s health expert draws a sample of your own blood and spins it in a centrifuge. The centrifugation process is aimed at separating the platelet-rich plasma (liquid portion of your blood) from the other components to obtain a greater concentration of growth factors. Our men’s health expert then administers five injections: one in the head and two along each side of the shaft of your penis.
After the PRP is injected, our physician puts a penis pump for 10 minutes to ensure optimal absorption in the area. Following your treatment, you need to use a penis pump, for the same duration, twice a day for six weeks to boost the effects of Man Shot.
The growth factors and protein in PRP essentially work by stimulating cellular repair and regeneration. When injected into your penis, PRP promotes tissue growth and facilitates healthy blood flow, resulting in firmer erections.
GAINSWave® Sound Wave Therapy
GAINSWave® is a premium brand of shockwave therapy, also known as low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LI-ESWT).
The treatment involves our men’s health expert gently running a small, wand-like device along your penile shaft. The device delivers sound waves, which penetrate your skin and work by breaking up plaque formation in the blood vessels and promoting new blood vessel growth. This boosts blood flow in your penis. Increased blood flow in your penis translates into stiffer and longer-lasting erections, enhanced sensitivity and, ultimately, increased sexual pleasure.
Many studies have been done on shockwave therapy and have found that 80 percent of men no longer experience ED after the treatment (which can take multiple sessions). Shockwave therapy is perfect for young men who are in good health because they have higher chances of seeing full reversal.
