Erectile Dysfunction Q & A

What causes erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) means that you have difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection that's sufficient for sexual intercourse. While most men experience sexual dysfunction issues on occasion, ED tends to occur regularly and can even progress over time.

You can struggle with erectile dysfunction for many reasons, including:

  • Poor circulation to your penis
  • Nerve damage in your penis
  • Stress, anxiety, or depression
  • Complications from diabetes 
  • Metabolic syndrome issues, including excess body fat
  • Hormone imbalance

Additionally, heart disease or any related complications, including clogged vessels (atherosclerosis), high cholesterol, or hypertension, can further increase your risk of ED.

When should I see a doctor for erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction can lower your self-esteem and confidence and can even put a strain on your relationship. Before your case of ED worsens, Dr. Youngren encourages you to come into Advanced Urology for an evaluation, especially if you're experiencing:

  • Low libido
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Ongoing difficulty achieving or keeping an erection

As a trusted leader in men's health and male sexual dysfunction, Dr. Youngren evaluates you to get to the root cause of your erectile dysfunction and helps you find the best type of treatment for your needs.

How is erectile dysfunction treated?

Dr. Youngren spends time personalizing your erectile dysfunction treatment plan. Your specific treatment may include medications that can improve blood flow to your penis, such as Viagra or Cialis. Many men find that these drugs allow them to regain sexual function quickly.

If you aren't a candidate for medication, or if you would prefer not to take a pill before intercorse, you may benefit from a noninvasive procedure that uses low-intensity shock waves called GAINSWave.

GAINSWave uses sound waves to target blood vessels in and around your penis. This effect increases blood flow to your penis and helps open up blood vessels and breaks apart plaque that may be clogging up vessels and affecting blood flow.
