Sexual health issues are not easy to discuss for some men. Fortunately, starting the conversation is half the battle. Men can experience sexual health issues at any age, although some conditions tend to become more prevalent as men grow older. Because most of these conditions are treatable, it’s important to understand the symptoms and know the options. We can help patients regain and improve sexual health in a confidential, caring environment.
How can I find out if I am suffering from erectile dysfunction?
You may have ED if you are unable to achieve or keep an erection leading up to and during intercourse. Keep in mind that there are varying degrees of impotence, ranging from slightly reduced rigidity to complete inability to achieve an erection. This particular condition can happen for a variety of reasons, and here at The Testosterone Replacement Clinic, we will help you to first get to the root cause of the problem and then provide appropriate treatment. This may include erectile dysfunction medications like Cialis or Viagra, testosterone replacement therapy, penile injections that stimulate erections, medications that stimulate a stronger sexual bond with your partner (and can be used by women as well) to improve the sexual experience, and peptide therapy that induces a stronger sexual desire. In some cases, because of vascular disease throughout the body, the blood flow to the penis is significantly reduced, and if this is the case Dr. Whelan will help you to identify this and provide you with the needed Urology referrals for proper treatment.
What if my issue is premature ejaculation and not erectile dysfunction?
At The Testosterone Replacement Clinic, we provide several safe and effective treatment options available to help men manage premature ejaculation. Sometimes utilizing the same medications that we use for erectile dysfunction are effective for this, but we also utilize other research proven medications that delay ejaculation, whether taken in pill form or with topical gel or cream applications to the penis.
What if my issue is with sexual desire/libido? What if the issue is with my partner’s sexual desire/libido?
The very first step in dealing with this issue is to initiate a conversation with your sexual partner(s) about how you both are feeling. This can often lead to mutual bonding and improve your relationship, desire and libido without medical intervention. Because these conversations can be difficult and embarrassing, it is sometimes best done with the help of a trained counselor. That being said, the Testosterone Replacement Clinic can also provide medical interventions to help with these issues whether it is due to erectile dysfunction, hormone dysregulation, or other issues. There are medications that can be used in some cases to stimulate libido in both men and women, so make sure to have this discussion with Dr. Whelan if you feel as though this may be a solution to your problem.
