What is erectile dysfunction?

When a man can’t get or maintain an erection long enough to have sex, he suffers erectile dysfunction. While most men experience erection issues from time to time, ongoing difficulties usually require treatment.

The underlying cause of erectile dysfunction can relate to both physical and psychological issues. You’re at increased risk of experiencing erectile dysfunction if you have health problems like:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Low testosterone
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)

Weight challenges, emotional stress, and depression can also raise your risk of erectile dysfunction.

When should I seek treatment for erectile dysfunction?

You should schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Lakepointe Direct Primary Care for erectile dysfunction if you have difficulties getting an erection or keeping one during sex.

You should also schedule a consultation with the team if you notice any changes in your desire for sex.

The team reviews your medical history and can discuss any mental health or psychological problems you’re experiencing that can contribute to erectile dysfunction.

Diagnostic testing is available in-office to evaluate your health. The team could order:

  • Blood work
  • Urine testing
  • Physical exam
  • Ultrasound imaging

Based on the results of your tests, the team creates a treatment plan to improve the quality of your erections. The caring, knowledgeable medical providers offer several treatments to address erectile dysfunction.

How is erectile dysfunction treated?

Your treatment plan for erectile dysfunction can include medications that improve blood flow to your penis to improve your erection quality.

If medications aren’t effective, you might be a candidate for a penis pump, a vacuum device that pulls blood into your penis to support a healthy erection. You might also benefit from penile implants, which involve surgery to place inflatable rods on both sides of your penis.

If you have underlying health problems, like high blood pressure, depression, or low testosterone, the team can tailor a treatment plan to your needs. Getting your physical and mental health conditions under control can improve your desire for sex and the quality of your erections.
