Erectile dysfunction, commonly known as ED, occurs when a man can’t get or keep an erection long enough to have sexual intercourse. It’s not uncommon for men to experience sexual difficulty, but when it becomes routine or interferes with your intimate relationships, it may be time to seek help from a specialist.
Some men may feel embarrassed or awkward to discuss sexual problems with their provider, but it’s important to do so because sexual dysfunction may be a sign of more serious issues — such as cardiovascular disease or circulatory problems. You have effective and safe treatment options available to help you return to your normally sexually vital self.
One of the best-known treatments for ED are those little blue pills: phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors that work to increase blood flow. But for men who don’t want to take drugs because of the unpleasant side effects or for those who have not found the pills to be effective, there are other solutions for ED that you may not know about.
While ED is not a natural part of getting older, it does affect older men more than younger men. ED can be a result of many different things. That’s why it’s important to see a medical professional if you are having a sexual problem. Finding out the cause can lead to effective treatment. Some causes of ED include:
In addition to pills, surgery is also an option. But many men don’t want to undergo an invasive procedure or go through the recovery period. Alternative ED treatments that are quick and effective include:
The Priapus Shot, commonly called the P-Shot®️, uses your body’s own healing abilities to improve your sexual performance. During the procedure, your provider draws your blood and separates the platelets, which have growth and healing properties, from the rest of your blood.
The P-Shot is the injection of those concentrated platelets, also called platelet-rich plasma (PRP), into your penis. Typically within a few weeks, you notice increased blood flow, firmness, and sexual stamina, among other benefits.
This innovative treatment uses acoustic waves to boost circulation and deliver blood to tissues. The acoustic waves create micro-ruptures in your capillaries. In response, your body sends healing agents to repair these micro-ruptures, which in turn improves penile function.
Amniotic fluid therapy has been called a game-changer for ED and Peyronie’s Disease. One study showed significantly improved blood flow to the penis even one year after the treatment. FIRMMAX+ is an amniotic fluid therapy available at Alexander Medical Spa. It’s often combined with the P-Shot and Firmwave therapy, for maximum results in improved sexual performance.
For men whose ED is due to low testosterone levels, your solution may be as simple as getting testosterone replacement therapy to help balance your hormone levels and improve your sex drive and performance.
