Erectile disfunction, also called ED, is characterized by the inability or difficulty in getting or maintaining an erection. ED is most often thought to be a condition that affects men over 40, but the problem is also very prevalent in men of a younger age. Men who seek treatment generally do so when they have experienced several recurring occasions where they were unable to have, keep, or hold an erection.
CAUSES OF ERECTILE DISFUNCTION
Problems with sexual function can affect a man at any time. Problems may be passing or they may occur frequently enough to cause dissatisfaction in your life. Things that may contribute to this condition are:
- Low testosterone
- Thyroid disorders
- Side effects from certain medications
- Prostate issues
- Alcohol and tobacco use
- Psychological disorders
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Poor lifestyle choices
- And a number of other health conditions
HOW COMMON IS ERECTILE DISFUNCTION?
Erectile dysfunction affects millions of men to various degrees and we understand the negative impacts this condition may have on your life. Many people go untreated because of the stigma and embarrassment they may feel discussing their problem with a doctor. Those who seek treatment, are met with high priced medical options, which many cannot afford. We want you to know that it is normal to deal with some degree of ED at some point in your life but if you are experiencing persistent symptoms that do not get better, treatment may be the right option for you.
AFFORDABLE TREATMENT FOR ERECTILE DISFUNCTION
For men who suffer from this condition, there are other options besides the high priced prescriptions, such as Cialis or Viagra,previously available to you through your local pharmacy. Our office works with several compounding pharmacies that make many different forms of these popular oral medications. These compounded versions are usually much more affordable than their brand name counterparts and offer the same active ingredients, sildenafil or tadalafil, in a generic version. They also compound injectable medications used for those who may not be able to tolerate the ingredients in the oral form of the compounded versions of Viagra and Cialis. The vast majority of ED cases are easily treated with compounded prescriptions.
A thorough medical history is an important factor in determining the right type of treatment for you.
