Erectile Dysfunction Q & A

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction refers to an inability to get or maintain an erection strong or long enough to have intercourse. Sexual arousal involves good health of the hormones, brain, emotions, blood vessels, and muscles. 

What causes erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction may be caused by medical, physical, or psychological issues, including:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Clogged arteries
  • Enlarged prostate
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Sleeping disorders
  • Peyronie's disease 
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Alcoholism
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Tobacco use
  • Prescription medications
  • Stress
  • Depression

Experiencing erectile dysfunction once in a while is not a major cause for concern, but if you find it happening repeatedly, you should see the providers at Vitality MDs for an exam and treatment, if necessary.

How is erectile dysfunction treated?

The team at Vitality MDs offers integrative treatment for erectile dysfunction involving a review of your lifestyle, medical history, and current health conditions. 

If your doctor discovers underlying health conditions, such as high blood pressure or diabetes, they are treated first. Treating underlying health conditions often resolves erectile dysfunction.

Your first line of treatment for erectile dysfunction may include lifestyle changes, such as limiting alcohol consumption, losing weight, or quitting smoking. 

If your erectile dysfunction is stress-related, learning new ways to handle stress or reduce depression may be an appropriate and effective treatment. Some men may need more advanced treatment for erectile dysfunction, including:

Medications

Taking oral prescription medications can help you get and maintain an erection to overcome erectile dysfunction. Medications work by increasing blood flow to your penis in response to sexual stimulation.

P-Shot®

P-Shots involve drawing a small amount of blood from your arm and transferring it to a centrifuge that separates your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the rest of your blood. Your PRP is then injected into your penis to stimulate blood flow and increase the size of your penis.
