What To Expect At The Doctor’s Office

Written by Hard on October 26, 2010

Talking about ED can be difficult. When you meet with your doctor, you might use a phrase like “I’ve been having problems in the bedroom” or “I’ve been having erection problems.” Remember that a healthy sex life is part of a healthy life. Don’t feel embarrassed about seeking help. ED is a medical problem, and your doctor treats medical problems every day.

Your partner may want to come with you to see the doctor. Many doctors say ED is easier to treat when both partners are involved.

To find the cause of your ED, your doctor will take a complete medical history and do a physical exam.

Physical Exam

A physical exam can help your doctor find the cause of your ED. As part of the exam, the doctor will examine your testes and penis, take your blood pressure, and check your reflexes. A blood sample will be taken to test for diabetes, cholesterol level, and other conditions that may be associated with ED.

Your doctor might ask you questions like:

- How do you rate your confidence that you can get and keep an erection?

- When you have erections with sexual stimulation, how often are your erections hard enough for penetration?

- During sexual intercourse, how often are you able to maintain your erection after penetration?

- When you attempt sexual intercourse, how often is it satisfactory for you?

- How would you rate your level of sexual desire?

- How often are you able to reach climax and ejaculate?

- Do you have an erection when you wake up in the morning?

The answers to these questions will help your doctor understand the problem.

If talking with your doctor doesn’t put you at ease, ask for a referral to another doctor. Your doctor may send you to a urologist, a doctor who specializes in sexual and urologic problems.

How An Erection Is Formed

Written by Hard on October 26, 2010

Hormones, blood vessels, nerves, and muscles must all work together to cause an erection. Your brain starts an erection by sending nerve signals to the penis when it senses sexual stimulation. Touch may cause this arousal. Other triggers may be things you see or hear, or sexual thoughts or dreams.


Your brain starts an erection by sending nerve signals to the penis.

The nerve signals cause the muscles in the penis to relax and let blood flow into the spongy tissue in the penis. Blood collects in this tissue like water filling a sponge. The penis becomes larger and firmer, like an inflated balloon. The veins then get shut off to keep blood from flowing out.

After climax or after the sexual arousal has passed, the veins open back up and blood flows back into the body.

Erection Problems May Be All Mental

Written by Hard on October 26, 2010

As you and your significant other head to the bedroom you are already thinking about not being able to get an erection or perform. As you get into bed it’s all you can think about and the worrying intensifies.

Sound familiar? If so then you are probably mentally setting yourself up for failure before you can even get your clothes off. Try not to worry so much and try to relax more.

Try not to think about erection problems at all. Thinking about it will just put you in that mental failure status.

Think about what, from your significant other, turns you on. Maybe a part of the body, action being done, scent, kiss, etc.

Overcoming the mental issues can mean overcoming erectile dysfunction.

How Is Erectile Dysfunction Treated?

Written by Hard on October 26, 2010

Your doctor can offer a number of treatments for ED. You may want to talk with your partner about which treatment fits you best as a couple. Most people want the simplest treatment possible. You may need to try a number of treatments before you find the one that works best for you.
Lifestyle Changes

For some men, the answer is to make a few lifestyle changes. Getting more exercise, quitting smoking, losing weight, and cutting back on alcohol solve some erection problems.
Counseling

Even though most cases of ED have a physical cause, counseling can help couples deal with the emotional effects. Some couples find that counseling adds to the medical treatment by making their relationship stronger.

Oral Medication

Since 1998, doctors have been able to prescribe a pill to treat ED. Current brands include Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis. If your doctor finds that your health is generally good, you may be given a prescription for one of these drugs. You should not take any of these pills to treat ED if you take any of the heart medicines called nitrates. All of the ED pills work by increasing blood flow to the penis. They do not cause automatic erections. Talk with your doctor about when to take the pill. You may need to experiment to find out how soon the pill takes effect.

Even if taking a pill solves your erection problem, you should still take care of the other health issues that may have caused your ED.
Injection

Taking a pill doesn’t work for everybody. Many men use medicines that go directly into the penis. Caverject and Edex are injected into the shaft of the penis with a needle. MUSE is a tiny pill inserted into the urethra at the tip of the penis. These medicines usually cause an erection within minutes. These medications can be very successful, even if other treatments fail.
Vacuum device

Another way to create an erection is to use a vacuum tube. The penis is inserted in the tube. As air is pumped out of the tube, the volume of the penis expands. Blood then flows into the penis and makes it larger. A specially designed rubber band is then placed at the base of the penis to keep the blood from flowing out.

Penile Implant

If the other options fail, some men need surgery to treat ED. A surgeon can implant a device that inflates or unbends to create an erection. Implanted devices do not interfere with the way sex feels.

This operation cannot be reversed. Once a man has a penile implant, he must use a device to have an erection. Talk with your doctor about the advantages and possible drawbacks of having a penile implant.

What Causes Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?

Written by Hard on October 26, 2010

Many different conditions can lead to Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Most of the causes of ED are health problems requiring treatment to help prevent more serious complications:

- Alcohol and drug abuse can cause ED by damaging blood vessels and deadening the nerves that control erections.

- Diabetes injures blood vessels and the nerves that control erections.

- Unhealthy habits like smoking, overeating, and avoiding exercise can also contribute to ED.

- High blood pressure and high cholesterol can injure the arteries that supply blood to the penis.

- Some prescription drugs such as some antidepressants or some high blood pressure medicines can cause ED. Your doctor may be able to change your drug treatment. Never stop taking a prescribed drug without talking to your doctor.

- Anything that’s bad for your heart is also bad for your sexual health.

- A small number of ED cases result from a reduced level of the male hormone testosterone.

- An injury to the spinal cord can cause ED by interfering with nerve signals.

- Treatments for prostate cancer, including radiation and prostate removal, can damage the nerves that control erections.

- Diseases that affect the nerves, like multiple sclerosis, can also lead to erection problems.

- Doctors used to believe that most cases of ED resulted from mental or emotional problems. We now know that most ED has a physical cause. But depression and worry or anxiety can still cause ED. And ED from physical causes can lead to depression and worry, making physical ED worse.

Talking To Your Doctor About Erectile Dysfunction

Some people can talk with their doctors about sex. Others feel that sex is details with anyone. But if you have problems getting or keeping an private. They do not want to share erection, you have good reasons to talk to a doctor: your health and your quality of life.

Other men have to try two or three options before they find a treatment that works for them. Don’t give up if the first treatment doesn’t work. Finding the right treatment can take time.
