Erectile Dysfunction Q & A
What is erectile dysfunction?
Most men have trouble with erections at some point in their lives. But how do you know when you’re truly experiencing erectile dysfunction?
The basic definition of erectile dysfunction is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection firm enough for sex. If this occurs frequently, it can put stress on you, your relationship, or your self-confidence, so it’s critical to seek help.
ED is both extremely common and immediately treatable. There is no reason to be embarrassed. Talk to the empathetic team at Happy Valley Clinic about erectile dysfunction today and we will find a solution that works for you. In some cases, erectile dysfunction is also a symptom of an underlying condition, which means that investigating the cause of your ED could be the first step to treating your heart disease, diabetes, or other similar condition.
What are the symptoms of erectile dysfunction?
In many cases, men with erectile dysfunction:
- Are unable to achieve an erection in the first place (impotence)
- Are unable to maintain an erection long enough to complete intercourse
- Have a general disinterest in sex or a diminished sex drive
In some cases, problems with ejaculation are to blame, such as premature ejaculation or the inability to ejaculate at all.
If you’re struggling with any of these issues, talk to the team at Happy Valley Clinic about potential solutions. If you have diabetes, heart disease, or a similar condition, don’t ignore ED, as it could be a warning sign of other symptoms to come.
How is erectile dysfunction treated?
There are a variety of treatments for ED, depending on the severity of your condition, as well as the specific cause. The first step of treatment at Happy Valley Clinic is determining what underlying condition is to blame.
If an underlying physical condition is the root cause of your ED, treatments like intracavernous injection therapy or focused shockwave therapy can be highly effective. The team at Happy Valley Clinic has been trained by the most successful ED clinic in California.
If blood flow isn’t to blame, a combination of treatments, including psychotherapy with our highly experienced therapist can help you work with your partner to address and solve outstanding challenges. We will provide you with an action plan that can literally change the life of you and your companion.
