Erectile dysfunction is defined as the inability to achieve and/or maintain an erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual intercourse. ED affects a large number of men. If you are experiencing ED, you are not alone. Although ED typically affects older men, but it can also affect men of any age. ED can often be an embarrassing medical issue to seek help for. Some patients would rather suffer through ED than seek treatment.
At Progressive Men’s Health, we are here to break the stigma. We offer a complete range of treatment to help patients with ED regain normal function and improve blood flow to the penis so they can achieve and maintain sexual erection spontaneously and naturally.
Common symptoms of erectile dysfunction vary, but may include:
- Difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection
- Weak and/or less rigid sexual erections
- Fewer and/or weaker morning erections
- Rapid climax/ejaculation with or without an incomplete erection
Risk Factors For ED
- Heart Problems: Heart problems can lead to erectile issues. To maintain an erection, the penis needs adequate blood flow. For patients with heart problems, they may experience poor circulation. Certain heart medication can also lead to ED.
- Obesity: Patients who are obese can develop serious health concerns that may affect their quality of life. Obesity can cause poor circulation, which may lead to ED.
- Smoking: Smoking can increase your risk of developing serious health concerns like heart disease, certain cancers, and lung issues. Patients who smoke may also experience constricting blood vessels, which may contribute to ED.
- Certain Medications: Certain medication can affect your ability to maintain an erection. Ir you suspect your ED may be the result of medication uses, talk to your doctor to see what other options are available.
