Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common issue amongst men, with approximately 30 million men dealing with this condition in the United States alone. As such, if you are dealing with erectile dysfunction, it is important to know that you are not the only one dealing with this condition and that there are effective treatment options to help you continue to have a healthy sex life. At En Vogue IV Therapy & Wellness Center, our medical doctors would be happy to evaluate your symptoms and provide appropriate treatment to help you overcome erectile dysfunction.
Erectile dysfunction, also referred to as impotence, is a male sexual health condition where an individual has difficulty or cannot achieve and maintain an erection. Erectile dysfunction becomes more common with age, as approximately 50 percent of men in their 50s struggle to varying degrees with ED. With that being said, an increasing number of men younger than 40 are dealing with erectile dysfunction as well.
From a medical perspective, the primary cause of erectile dysfunction is restricted blood flow (arteriosclerosis) to the penis due to abnormalities in the penile arteries, veins, or both. However, there are numerous conditions or disorders that can lead to such abnormalities and reduced blood flow. With that in mind, some common causes or risk factors of erectile dysfunction include the following:
• Alcohol, drug, or tobacco use
• Chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD)
• Depression, stress, or anxiety surrounding sexual performance
• High blood pressure
• Injury or trauma to the penis
• Low testosterone
• Neurological disorders
• Penile scar tissue
• Peyronie’s disease (abnormal curvature of the penis)
• Priapism (penile inflammation)
• Prostate issues
• Relationship concerns or issues
• Renal (kidney) failure
• Type 2 diabetes
• Various medications, such as antidepressants or blood pressure medication
• Vascular disease
There are several different ways that a medical doctor can go about treating erectile dysfunction. However, treatment for erectile dysfunction is typically dependent on the cause of ED in the individual, in addition to any underlying medical conditions, medications, or allergies they have. With that being said, some common treatment options for erectile dysfunction include the following:
• Lifestyle modifications
• Penile implants
• Prescription medication
• PT-141 peptide therapy
• Sex therapy
• Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), also known as hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
• Wave therapy

While difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection may happen now and then for some individuals, the concern that an individual has erectile dysfunction is typically only raised when it is an ongoing and recurrent issue. With that said, some possible signs that you should see a doctor for erectile dysfunction include the following:
• Symptoms that slowly and consistently worsen
• Your inability to maintain or achieve an erection is causing you significant anxiety, low self-esteem, or is compromising your sexual relationship
Not only can erectile dysfunction decrease one’s sexual satisfaction and enjoyment, but it can also have negative effects on their mental and emotional health. As such, getting treated for erectile dysfunction can have several benefits if you or someone you love are dealing with this condition.
