Erectile Dysfunction Q & A
What is erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection. While most men experience erectile difficulties during sex from time to time, ED is an ongoing condition that often requires professional treatment.
At Infinity Regenerative and Neuropathy Center, Dr. Horrilleno offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to treat ED. After a comprehensive exam, which includes a physical exam, medical history review, and bloodwork, Dr. Horrilleno can uncover the cause of your erectile dysfunction to determine the appropriate treatment.
What are the symptoms of erectile dysfunction?
The most common symptoms of erectile dysfunction are difficulty achieving and maintaining an erection. If you have ED, you may also suffer from low libido. Some men with erectile dysfunction also experience premature ejaculation.
Your symptoms can help determine which type of erectile dysfunction treatment is right for you. The sooner you seek help for ED, the sooner Dr. Horrilleno can recommend the proper treatment.
What causes erectile dysfunction?
Many genetic, lifestyle, environmental, and hormonal factors can lead to erectile dysfunction, including:
- High cholesterol
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Tobacco use
- Cardiovascular disease
- Sleep apnea
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Low testosterone (low T)
- Atherosclerosis (plaque buildup in the blood vessels)
- Multiple sclerosis (MS)
Peyronie's disease is another common cause of erectile dysfunction that stems from scar tissue in the penis. This condition can feel quite painful, leading to uncomfortable, curved erections.
While erectile dysfunction can occur in men of all ages, it’s highly common in older adults. Your body loses testosterone levels at about 1% each year, starting around age 30.
What are the treatments for erectile dysfunction?
The best treatment for erectile dysfunction depends on its cause. At your initial visit, Dr. Horrilleno performs a physical exam, reviews your medical history, and orders bloodwork to determine the underlying cause of your ED symptoms.
The two most common treatments Infinity Regenerative and Neuropathy Center offers to treat erectile dysfunction include:
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy
BHRT replaces the depleted hormones in your body with plant-based substances. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can mimic the effects of hormones, like testosterone. Infinity Regenerative and Neuropathy Center uses the Pellecome™ pellet delivery system to restore balance to your depleted testosterone levels.
