No one likes talking about it, but the truth is 30 million American men suffer from Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Aside from being a cause of stress for you and your partner, ED is often an early warning sign for heart disease. The good news is that ED can be treated quickly, at any age with the Innovative approach. Our doctors are trained to accurately find the underlying cause of your ED and prescribe a treatment the day after your first visit. We guarantee it.
Erectile Dysfunction refers only to the ability of the penis to become erect and participate in intercourse, leading to ejaculation. Loss of firmness during intercourse can happen occasionally in the beginning. Over time, the condition may increase in frequency until one day, erection may cease altogether. It can also result in the inability to have an orgasm even with some firmness, called anorgasmia. Some men develop premature ejaculation due to the fear that they may lose the erection before being able to climax.
Occasional, or intermittent, sexual problems do not necessarily point to erectile dysfunction. But you may be dealing with Erectile Dysfunction when the following symptoms are persistent: reduced desire for sex, inability to maintain an erection, inability to get an erection.
It usually starts with the occasional loss of erection before ejaculation. Over time, the ability to get and maintain the erection will become more frequent. At Innovative Men's Health, we treat all types of ED from mild to serious.
If you can still get an erection through masturbation, or wake up with morning erections, your ED is most likely psychological. Psychological issues can often compound, creating an endless downward spiral. 70% of men have admitted to experiencing ED at some point and despite what you may think, it is a treatable condition.
Depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions
These complex mental disorders can prevent enjoyment of things or activities that used to bring pleasure, which can lead to unsatisfactory sex. Dissatisfaction in the bedroom can worsen the existing mental disorder.
Chronic, daily stress or
acute momentary stress
Stress in everyday life or in the spur of the moment can result in ED. Research has shown that there is a correlation between a man’s state of mind and his ability to perform sexually.
Men tend to value the emotional connection sex provides while women most often need to feel emotionally stable to enjoy sex. This disconnect can create relationship problems over time.
Fear of failure
If the male’s partner’s sexual expectations are unfulfilled, it may lead him down a spiral of feeling unworthy or incapable in the next encounter.
Excessive exposure to pornography can exhaust a man’s sexual capacity and drive. The period of time between erections is called the refractory period and that time can increase with age.
Men require a lot of different body parts working together in the right way to get and keep an erection. Because of that, erectile dysfunction (ED) can have many causes. Some of them are physical while others are mental and emotional.
Damage to the nerves controlling erection can occur in men with diabetes.
Erection is all about blood flow. There are a number of causes for clogged arteries including diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity. If left untreated, clogged arteries can lead to life-threatening illnesses.
Many prescription drugs that influence hormones, nerves, or blood circulation can have an adverse effect on erection.
The chemicals in cigarettes can damage the lining of blood vessels, limiting the movement of blood to your penis.
Several studies have suggested that ED may be a good indicator that a man may likely develop heart disease symptoms within five years.
Certain medical treatments
Certain cancer treatments, such as treatment for prostate cancer, can result in ED as a side effect. Normal functions can return after one or two years following the cancer treatment without medical interventions.
Long term erectile dysfunction can occur after an injury if the nerves or blood supply is interrupted. This can include spinal cord injury or major trauma to the pelvis/hips or penis itself.
Drug and alcohol use
Recreational drugs or alcohol use can decrease blood flow to the penis and/or decrease sex drive. Long term abuse can lead to ED and other sexual problems.
A physical examination will be conducted to make sure everything looks normal and the nerves are working as expected.
Medical exams 03
Medical exams such as ultrasound and blood or urine tests may be required depending on your medical history and physical exam to determine if your ED is related to hormonal problems, diabetes, heart/kidney disease, and/or thyroid issues.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy
If your blood test results indicate low testosterone levels, we may recommend treatments to raise your testosterone levels along with ED treatments.
Ultrasonic Shock Wave Therapy
This treatment applies ultrasonic waves directly at the penile shaft, promoting the growth of new blood vessels and repairing damaged tissues in the penis. There are no side effects and results may vary.
We have proprietary ED medications that can amplify signals from penile nerves from sexual stimulation. Our unique blend of compounds is more effective and generally less expensive than regular prescriptions.
TriMix is an essentially painless injection with a very small needle directly into the penis. It is effective for treating men with chronic medical conditions and men who have not been able to get an erection in a long time.
Most erection issues stem from stress or mental disorders such as depression and anxiety. Unfortunately, this can result in a downward spiral as ED can further contribute to existing conditions.
ED penis pumps
Vacuum pumps help ‘manufacture’ a stronger erection by forcing blood flow. When a strong erection is achieved, a plastic ring slides onto the base of the penis, maintaining the erection.
A healthy lifestyle can prevent erectile dysfunction and other health concerns. You should work with your doctor to manage existing health conditions and get regular checkups to screen for potential problems.
Watch what you eat
Research has shown that the same eating patterns that can cause heart attacks due to restricted blood flow in the coronary arteries can also impede blood flow to and within the penis. The blood flow is needed for the penis to become erect.
Maintain a healthy weight
Being overweight can bring many health problems, including Type 2 Diabetes, which can cause nerve damage throughout the body. If the diabetes affects the nerves that supply the penis, ED can result.
Avoid high blood pressure and high cholesterol
High cholesterol or high blood pressure can damage blood vessels, including those that bring blood to the penis. Eventually, this may lead to ED. If your cholesterol or blood pressure is out of whack, get it treated.
Drink alcohol in moderation
Chronic heavy drinking can cause liver damage, nerve damage, and other conditions - such as interfering with the normal balance of male sex hormone levels - that can lead to ED.
Strong evidence links a sedentary lifestyle to erectile dysfunction. Running, swimming, and other forms of aerobic exercise have been shown to help prevent ED. Watch out for any form of exercise that puts excessive pressure on the perineum.
Don't rely on Kegels
One form of exercise that doesn't seem helpful is Kegel exercises, which involve repeatedly contracting and relaxing the muscles in the pelvis. There's no evidence that they prevent erectile dysfunction.
Keep tabs on testosterone
Even in healthy men, testosterone levels often begin falling after age 30. Symptoms like a low sex drive, moodiness, lack of stamina, or trouble making decisions suggest a testosterone deficiency, as do lackluster erections.
Smoking cigarettes can harm blood vessels and curb blood flow to the penis. And nicotine makes blood vessels contract, which can hamper blood flow to the penis.
Psychological stress boosts levels of the hormone adrenaline, which makes blood vessels contract. That can be bad news for an erection. Anything a man can do to ease tension and feel better emotionally is likely to give his sex life a big boost.
