Sexual dysfunction in men, particularly ED, is a common problem among the aging population. It often leaves men unable to achieve or maintain an erection that’s strong enough for sexual intercourse. You might also have reduced sexual desire because of sexual dysfunction.
The Pasadena Urological Medical Group team works closely with therapists who specialize in psychological and stress-related factors that cause ED. They also reduce the causes of ED that medications alone don’t address.
The cause of ED and other forms of sexual dysfunction aren’t always known, but some of the common risk factors include:
The best way to reduce the risk of sexual dysfunction is to incorporate healthy lifestyle habits into your life. However, you can’t always prevent ED without medical intervention.
To find out if you have sexual dysfunction and determine its cause, the Pasadena Urological Medical Group team discusses your medical history and symptoms. They ask about your medication regimen, lifestyle habits, and psychological health and wellness.
Your provider completes a physical exam, checks your vital signs, and may order urine testing, blood tests, ultrasounds, or other diagnostic procedures.
The Pasadena Urological Medical Group may suggest one or more of the following treatments for sexual dysfunction:
Adopt healthy habits to maximize sexual functioning. Eat nutritious foods, maintain an ideal body weight, get regular exercise and plenty of sleep, limit or avoid alcohol, don’t smoke, and keep stress levels low.
If you struggle with depression and anxiety, psychological counseling can help you work through these conditions to improve your sexual health.
Your specialist may suggest you take oral medicines, receive injections, or try a urethral suppository to treat sexual dysfunction.
Hormone replacement therapy helps balance your hormones to improve sexual functioning. You might receive injections, gels, patches, pills, or subdermal pellets.
Penis pumps and implants can enhance erections and reduce ED. Your specialist tailors each sexual dysfunction treatment to offer outstanding results.
