Erectile Dysfunction Q&A

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction or ED is a condition that affects your ability to get and maintain a firm erection. It can make it challenging to get erect in the first place, or it can cause you to lose your erection unexpectedly. However ED affects you, it can pose problems for your sex life and self-confidence.

What causes erectile dysfunction?

A wide range of physical and psychological conditions can cause erectile dysfunction. It’s not a sign that you’re less of a man. Instead, it could be indicative of another issue in your body. 

Family Medical Center regularly treats men with ED as a result of:

  • Atherosclerosis (clogged blood vessels)
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart disease
  • Low testosterone
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis

A number of diagnosable medical conditions can be to blame for ED. Additionally, lifestyle choices like tobacco use, obesity caused by unhealthy eating and lack of exercise, and substance abuse can all contribute to erectile dysfunction. 

And those are just the physical factors at play. Mental and interpersonal challenges like depression, relationship problems, and stress can all cause ED, too. 

Regardless of the cause of your ED, Family Medical Center is available to treat your ED, so you can enjoy regular, reliable erections again. 

How is erectile dysfunction treated?

All too many people assume medication is the only way to treat erectile dysfunction. But that’s not the case. 

Many men experience erection problems as a result of their body’s decreased testosterone production, for example. This decrease in testosterone comes with aging — but Family Medical Center has a way to reverse it. With testosterone therapy, your provider rebalances your hormone levels, alleviating ED, and any other low-testosterone symptoms. 

Stress management techniques or lifestyle changes like increased physical activity can make a difference in your ED. Your Family Medical Center provider explores all of your treatment options before simply prescribing medication to you. Their goal is to help you lead a healthy life without reliance on a prescription drug.
