Erectile Dysfunction Q & A

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction, commonly known as ED, is a condition that makes getting an erection difficult. You might not be able to get an erection at all or have erections that aren’t strong enough for satisfactory sexual intercourse. With ED, you might also experience reduced sexual desire or embarrassment. 

ED is common among men, especially those over 40. The simple treatments available at the Daily Apple Clinic can restore sexual function.

What are the risk factors for ED?

ED can happen to anyone, but some factors increase your risk of experiencing it. Example include:

  • Older age
  • Tobacco use
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Other medical conditions
  • Obesity
  • Prostate surgery
  • Radiation treatment
  • Injuries
  • Some medications
  • Drug or alcohol use
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

The best way to reduce your risk of getting ED is to adopt healthy lifestyle habits. Avoid tobacco and drug use, limit or avoid alcohol, exercise regularly, eat healthy foods, and maintain a healthy weight. Ask your doctor if your current medications may contribute to ED.

How does my doctor diagnose erectile dysfunction?

To find out if you have erectile dysfunction and its root cause, your Daily Apple Clinic specialist reviews your symptoms and medical history, then completes a physical examination to assess your overall health and detect or rule out medical problems.

Your specialist might recommend you undergo blood tests, urine tests, ultrasounds, or other imaging procedures.

What are common ED treatments?

Common treatments available for erectile dysfunction include:

Lifestyle changes

Maintaining healthy lifestyle habits, including weight loss if you’re overweight and regular exercise, may help reduce ED symptoms without the need for further intervention.

Medications

Taking Viagra, Cialis, or other common ED medicines can help you achieve the strong erections you desire.

Hormone therapy

Low testosterone is a common cause of erectile dysfunction, but hormone therapy can increase testosterone levels and restore strong erections. Your doctor may suggest injections, patches, or gels to boost testosterone in your body. 

Injections

Penis injections can stimulate blood flow, generate new cells, and restore your body’s ability to achieve strong erections. Your provider first numbs your genital area, so you don’t feel any pain.

Don’t live with erectile dysfunction when simple solutions available at Daily Apple Clinic can give you strong erections and restore your sex life. Call the office to schedule an appointment or book one online today.
