Erectile dysfunction, also known as ED, is a condition that affects nearly 3 million men in the United States every year. Speaking with your doctor about ED can sometimes be difficult, but it is important to remember that you are not alone, and the talented and experienced doctor at Zinnia Aesthetics and Anti-Aging are here to help.
There can be many symptoms of erectile dysfunction. The most well-known symptom of ED is the inability to successfully achieve an erection. However, there are many different manifestations of ED, including the inability to maintain an erection for the duration of intercourse, or the inability to ejaculate. If this happens only occasionally, it should not be cause for concern. However, if these issues are happening regularly, it may be time to discuss your symptoms with a doctor. The physicians at Zinnia Aesthetics and Anti-Aging have the experience necessary to diagnose and treat your erectile dysfunction symptoms.
Of course, for many men, talking about ED can be difficult because it often triggers feelings of shame or embarrassment and anxiety. That is why it is so important to find a doctor with whom you can build a trusting and comfortable relationship. Seeking treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED) requires open communication between doctor and patient.
Most erectile dysfunction cases are the result of physical issues. These can include heart disease and high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, drug abuse, and hormonal disorders, among others. It can also be a side effect of using certain medications, including those that treat depression and anxiety, prostate problems, some cancer drugs and opioid painkillers. In very rare instances, ED may be the result of psychological problems such as severe anxiety or depression, guilt, or fear of intimacy. It is important to discuss all potential problems with a qualified physician, so that you can receive the proper treatment for your individual situation.
The most common treatment for erectile dysfunction consists of taking prescription medication. Phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE-5) inhibitors cause the blood vessels in the body to relax, allowing for increased blood flow, which can help men suffering from ED achieve and maintain an erection. The most common PDE-5 inhibitors prescribed for erectile dysfunction are Viagra (sildenafil), Levitra (vardenafil), Stendra (avanafil), and Cialis (tadalafil). The first three medications are typically taken 30-60 minutes before sex. Cialis is a pill that is taken once a day. PDE-5 inhibitors are only available by prescription, and do sometimes have side effects including headache, indigestion, and flushing.
There are a few other ways to treat erectile dysfunction, including penile implants, vascular surgery, and vacuum devices that can help a man achieve an erection by using a vacuum pump to help draw blood to the area. These methods are far more invasive than the use of medication, which is why they are a much less popular choice for ED treatment. However, it is important to discuss all potential treatments with your doctor. Zinnia Aesthetics and Anti-Aging has a team of qualified professionals who can discuss all your concerns, and provide confidential, quality diagnosis and treatment.
