Sexual dysfunction is a common problem, which your ED doctor in Jacksonville, FL, can address with a variety of treatment approaches. Treatment begins with good communication between you and your provider.
Here are some questions that many men are too afraid to ask, but remember, knowledge can empower you to get the effective care you need to fully restore your sexual function and satisfaction.
Is Erectile Dysfunction Normal as I Age?
By age 40, about 40 percent of men have some degree of ED, the inability to get and maintain an erection sufficient for sex. By age 70, that number increases to 70 percent.
That being said, age is not the primary driver in male sexual dysfunction. Other factors–either singly or in combination– can precipitate short- or long-term difficulties with sexual performance and satisfaction. These factors include:
- Chronic stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues
- Low testosterone levels
- Medications, such as antidepressants and antihypertensives
- Heart disease and other circulation problems
- Penile injury
- Excessive alcohol intake
- Lack of exercise
Your ED doctor in Jacksonville, FL, can do a physical exam and review of your medical, surgical, injury and medication history. Then, as needed, he will use other diagnostic assessments to determine the reasons behind your sexual dysfunction and how best to treat it. Your ED doctor will want to address any underlying medical problems as the first step in recovering your sexual function.
Do I Have to Take Pills to Overcome ED?
Oral medications, such as Viagra, get a lot of publicity these days. However, they are not the only way to treat problems with sexual function. Non-operative solutions include vacuum pumps, platelet-rich plasma therapy, behavioral therapy, acoustic sound wave therapy, and more are just as effective – if not more – as oral medications.
Why Is My Penis Curved When I Have an Erection?
When an erect penis is curved in any direction more than 30 degrees, it is likely due to a condition called Peyronie’s disease. Stemming from an accumulation of plaque and scar tissue, Peyronie’s disease makes intercourse painful, embarrassing, and many times, impossible. Your sexual function doctor in Naperville, IL, frequently uses GAINSwave acoustic therapy as an effective, non-operative therapy to improve blood flow and straighten penile structure in patients.
I Ejaculate Very Quickly. How Can I Slow Down My Response?
Infection, relationship issues, overstimulation, and other factors can precipitate episodes of premature ejaculation. While it may happen to any man occasionally, repeated episodes are not normal and can be treated through behavior therapy, topical medications, and more. The goal is satisfactory sexual experience for both partners.
