Erectile Dysfunction

What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction, also called impotence, is the inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. It is a very common issue, affecting about 30 million men in the U.S. While having trouble maintaining an erection from time to time is not necessarily a sign of an issue, ongoing problems can lead to stress, negatively affect self-confidence, and even lead to relationship issues.

Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction

Common symptoms of erectile dysfunction may include:

  • Trouble getting an erection
  • Trouble keeping an erection
  • Reduced sexual desire

What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction can be caused by a number of factors, including health and emotional issues. Some risk factors include:

  • Having diabetes
  • Having high blood pressure
  • Being over the age of 50
  • Having high cholesterol
  • Having cardiovascular disease
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Using drugs or alcohol
  • Lack of exercise

Erectile Dysfunction Treatment  

Treatment for erectile dysfunction will begin with taking the proper steps to care for your heart and vascular health. Your provider will speak with you to create a plan that may include changing your diet, increasing workouts, or changing habits such as smoking or alcohol use. You may also benefit from treating certain mental issues such as anxiety or depression.

Overall, there are a number of treatment options that may be included in your erectile dysfunction treatment plan, including:

  • Oral drugs such as Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, or Stendra
  • Testosterone therapy
  • Penile injections

Highly Recommended

Met with Dr. Webb today for a second opinion on a surgical procedure and he was very thorough going over everything, answered my questions, explained options in great detail and even went over other health issues I was having that weren’t related. I never felt rushed or like my concerns weren’t important or valid. His staff was very welcoming as well! Highly recommend!
