What is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile Dysfunction, or ED, simply put, is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection for satisfactory sexual intercourse. ED is much more common than you probably think. In fact, erectile dysfunction will affect most males at some point in their lifetime. This can feel like an embarrassing issue to discuss, but understand that it absolutely shouldn’t be. There are now numerous ED therapy options available, depending on the root cause of your issue. If you are dealing with the frustrations of erectile dysfunction, even just once in awhile, it’s important to speak with an experienced sexual health expert. ED can usually be easily solved, and your quality of life and sexual satisfaction (for both you and your partner) can be dramatically improved.
Signs of ED include:
- Morning erections are less frequent and not as strong
- At least one in every four sexual attempts results in a difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection
- During sex, your erection becomes weaker
- It takes longer to get an erection, or it becomes a conscious effort to maintain one
Erectile dysfunction can affect healthy individuals, but there are some risk factors you should watch out for. In general, for a strong erection to occur, a healthy bloodflow and good circulation is required. This is why most of the risk factors are mainly vascular.
Risk Factors for ED:
- Low testosterone
- Poor circulation
- Hardened or blocked arteries
- Cardiac disease
- High cholesterol
The Downsides of Taking Viagra, Levitra or Cialis
Viagra launched in 1998, and seemed like the perfect solution to end ED for good. Soon after Levitra and Cialis were introduced. While these drugs have helped many men regain their sexual confidence, the side effects and risk factors are not often talked about. At least 20% of people suffer from dangerous side effects of these oral medications which can include sudden blindness and heart conditions. Also, as men age, these drugs tend to be less and less effective. Luckily, there are now natural, safe, non-systemic and long-lasting treatment solutions for ED.
Safe & Effective ED Therapy
At Begin Anew, we offer powerful sexual health treatments for men that are safe, natural, and proven effective. A normal amount of testosterone is required for these treatments to work optimally, so we generally recommend a holistic approach to sexual health optimization that includes our Optimal Wellness Blood Panel. This gives us a full picture of your health and can often help determine the root causes of your ED.
EWave Shockwave Therapy
The latest breakthrough in male sexual health is a non-invasive device called shockwave therapy which helps improve bloodflow and circulation, and therefore, erections. Instantly, an EWave treatment can help break up any blockage in the blood vessels of the penis, and over time it can actually help grow newer, stronger blood vessels. We typically recommend a series of treatments for best results. Our patients report this treatment is completely painless and they instantly notice the effects of a stronger and longer lasting erection.
ICI, or intercavernousal injection, has been a popular and effective ED treatment since 1983. This therapy is non-systemic, and therefore very safe with no side effects. A combination of three or four FDA-approved medications are injected directly into the penis using a very small needle. This results in an instant increase in bloodflow, and a powerful erection with or without stimulation that can last 30, 60 or 90 minutes. Your ICI therapy and medications are completely customizable based on your needs and body chemistry.
Bioidentical Testosterone Therapy
Quite often, the cause of ED is simply low, or less than optimal, testosterone levels, known as Low T. This can be easily resolved with a simple blood test, and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. At Begin Anew, our hormone specialists are experts in healthy testosterone levels, and can work with you to find a treatment that best fits your lifestyle. We offer testosterone pellet therapy, injections or creams which can easily get your hormones, your libido, and your sex life back on track.
Peptide therapies are another exciting new treatment solution that are helping many men and women boost libido and improve sexual performance. Bremeloanotide PT141 is an FDA-approved peptide available in injection, oral and topical form that increases sexual desire via the nervous system.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
PRP injections, also known as the “P shot”, are another natural way to boost your circulation, sensation and sexual performance. Our PRP expert will take your blood and inject your own plasma into the penis, where the platelets and growth factors go to work creating new blood vessels and growing younger, healthier tissue. This leads to improved vascular function, better bloodflow and circulation, more powerful erections and enhanced sensitivity.
