Erectile dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, is a common concern for men, with over 50% of men experiencing some form of ED at some point in their lives. It’s characterized by the consistent or recurrent inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual performance. While it’s normal to occasionally have difficulties maintaining an erection, it may be a sign of ED if the issue persists. Erectile dysfunction can have significant impacts on a man’s quality of life, affecting both physical and emotional health, including self-esteem and relationships.
Erectile dysfunction can be caused by a combination of physical and psychological issues, but it’s estimated that about 90% of the causes are physical. Physical causes often include heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, tobacco use, alcoholism, and certain prescription medications. It can also be caused by conditions that impair blood flow to the penis like atherosclerosis. Psychological causes can include stress, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, and mental health disorders. In many cases, an episode of ED can create a cycle of anxiety and stress that can worsen the condition.
Erectile dysfunction can occur at any age, but it is more common in men middle-aged and older. According to the National Institute of Health, the prevalence of ED is approximately 2 percent in men younger than 40 years, but it increases significantly with age. By the age of 70, up to 70 percent of men report having some symptoms of ED. It’s worth noting, however, that experiencing ED does not have to be a normal part of aging, and men of all ages should seek medical advice if they’re dealing with this condition.
There are several treatment options available for ED, depending on the underlying cause. At Prime Vitality, our team and Dr. Goel will work to identify the underlying causes of your ED. Your treatment plan may include things like:
Lifestyle changes such as losing weight, quitting smoking, or reducing alcohol consumption may be enough to improve symptoms.
Medications like sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis), and vardenafil (Levitra) can be effective for many men. However, these medications are not suitable for everyone and can have side effects. It is also estimated that 30-70% of men feel these medications do not adequately treat their ED.
In some cases, psychological counseling may be beneficial, particularly if stress or anxiety is contributing to the condition.
Dr. G will discuss all of these options with you, and together you will come up with a personalized plan that may include several treatments that help regain confidence and satisfaction in the bedroom. With Dr. Goel’s personalized guidance, you’re not alone in your journey. Contact Prime Vitality today to schedule your consultation with Dr. G.
Intracorporeal penile injection treatment involves injecting medication directly into the penis to achieve and maintain an erection. The medications used in these injections are typically vasodilators, which relax the blood vessels and increase blood flow to the penis, facilitating an erection.
