How Do Doctors Treat Erectile Dysfunction?

52% of men experience some form of erectile dysfunction throughout their lives, making the condition quite common. This means that if you’re experiencing erectile issues, you’re definitely not alone.

Whether it happened suddenly or slowly crept up on you, erectile dysfunction can sometimes be daunting and confusing. But don’t worry. There’s plenty of help available for those wanting to understand their condition better and take action toward alleviating or improving it.

Today, we’ll learn about how physicians approach the treatment of erectile dysfunction. This includes exploring PRP for erectile dysfunction and other innovative treatments. Let’s dive get right into fixing this problem together.

Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is a condition in which a man cannot achieve or maintain an erection suitable for sexual activity. If you’ve ever experienced this, you know how it can cause distress. It can lead to a loss of libido and confidence.

However, it’s the cause of erectile dysfunction that you want to understand. Getting to the root cause is often the best way to treat the condition. An array of physical and psychological issues can lead to erectile dysfunction.

Physical factors that contribute to erectile dysfunction include the following:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Low testosterone
  • Certain medications

Psychological causes range from depression, stress, or a relationship issue to anxiety about sexual performance. The important thing to remember is that you can address and improve erectile dysfunction with the help of a doctor through medication or lifestyle changes.

Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction

How do you know if you have erectile dysfunction or if it was just a one-off situation? ED often appears gradually, so you may not notice the symptoms when you see them. Common symptoms of erectile dysfunction include the following:

  • Difficulty becoming aroused
  • Lack of interest in sexual activity
  • Being unable to maintain an erection for an adequate amount of time
  • Reduced sexual desire
  • Issues with ejaculation

Most of the time, these symptoms are accompanied by performance anxiety. Of course, symptoms vary in seriousness according to the individual, but it’s important to seek medical help if symptoms persist, as they could be signs of other underlying illnesses.

Treating Erectile Dysfunction: 3 Options

If you believe your performance issues are due to erectile dysfunction, then what are your options? When treating erectile dysfunction, it’s important to ensure there are no underlying conditions you need to take care of. For example, if you have trouble maintaining an erection due to poor circulation caused by heart disease, you must address that first.

However, if you’re healthy and haven’t found anything that helps, here are a few great treatment options.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) involves the administration of man-made hormones to the body. The goal is to restore hormone levels that have been depleted due to aging. After all, hormones play a crucial role in sexual functioning.

Overall, hormone replacement therapy has been found to help males struggling with erection issues achieve healthier sexual performance. With testosterone replacement, physical symptoms such as sexual drive and erections should improve.

This form of therapy has become increasingly popular as it is known to be safe and well-tolerated, making it an attractive option for men who don’t want to resort to other treatments or take medications associated with unwanted side effects.

Peptide Therapy

For men struggling with ED, peptide therapy featuring PT-141 injections can help. Also known as Bremelanotide, the peptides in this injection are gaining traction in research studies. They provide a revolutionary hormonal treatment to improve sexual function in both men and women.

How are they so effective? PT-141 works differently than treatments like Viagra and Cialis. It affects the nervous system rather than the vascular system. This means that PT 141 not only gives you the ability to achieve an erection but can also increase arousal and satisfaction.

Endura Shot

Finally, we have the Endura shot, also called the P-shot. The Endura shot works by utilizing PRP-based injections that target the corpus cavernosum, the part of the penis responsible for erections.

This injection technique uses the patient’s growth factors to achieve a natural solution to improve their sexual function and increase the penis size (both length and girth) without surgery. It’s a fast, non-invasive procedure that can have long-lasting effects in improving men’s sexual health.

PRP for Erectile Dysfunction: Is It Effective?

As we talk about treatments for ED, it’s important to talk about PRP for erectile dysfunction. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. This means that, during the treatment, we’ll use your body’s plasma.

The goal is to promote the regeneration of cells and repair of tissue in the penis. As the tissue repairs, it strengthens and enlarges. The shot also helps build new blood vessels for improved blood flow to the penis. That’s why treatments like the Endura shot can help improve your sexual abilities and (in some cases) help enlarge your penis.

Not only that, but PRP is one of the most natural and safest treatments available for men who want to improve their sexual abilities. So, yes, it is incredibly effective. Whether you struggle with maintaining an erection or want to improve your sexual function, PRP treatments are worth looking into.

You can expect stronger, longer erections. As a bonus, the treatment lasting up to 18 months.
