Erectile Dysfunction Q&A

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction, or ED, is an inability to get or maintain an erection during sex. While most men experience sexual performance problems at some point, it may be cause for concern if it’s become an ongoing problem. Many men feel uncomfortable approaching their doctor about erectile dysfunction, but it’s a common condition that’s easily treatable at Dr. Dekel’s office.

What causes erectile dysfunction?

Sexual response is an intricate topic that involves physical, emotional, hormonal and mental arousal for most men, so the cause can be hard to pinpoint. However, some of the most common causes of erectile dysfunction are:

  • Anxiety
  • Age
  • Depression
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Relationship problems
  • Insomnia
  • Obesity
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Hormone imbalance, particularly low testosterone
  • Kidney disease
  • Certain medications
  • Drug use
  • Alcohol

For many men, ED is the result of several different factors, such as stress and relationship problems. It’s important to talk to Dr. Dekel about any recent changes to your lifestyle habits to rule out medical conditions before you start treatment.

How is erectile dysfunction treated?

Dr. Dekel offers a variety of erectile dysfunction treatments for men of all ages, including:


Bioidentical hormone supplementation

If you’re suffering from low testosterone levels, bioidentical hormone supplementation can help increase your testosterone levels so you can get and maintain an erection during sex.


P-Shot® penile rejuvenation

P-Shot penile rejuvenation uses your body’s own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and/or stem cells if necessary to naturally rejuvenate your penis and promote new tissue growth. This helps increase blood circulation in the penis, so your erections stay firm for longer. In addition, the P-Shot can help increase your penis size and the ability to feel pleasure.


Cialis

Cialis, or tadalafil, is a medication that treats erectile dysfunction by increasing blood flow to the penis. It can also help treat the symptoms of an enlarged prostate in men.
