Why Your Sexual Health Matters
Sex is a normal part of life and can be an important aspect of many relationships. However, many factors can contribute to Erectile Dysfunction, https://www.urologyhealth.org/urology-a-z/e/erectile-dysfunction-(ed), which is defined as trouble getting or keeping an erection that’s sufficient enough for satisfying sexual activity. It is the most common sex problem that men report to their doctor. It affects as many as 30 million men. Suffering from Erectile Dysfunction can be difficult not only physically but emotionally as well. Keep reading to learn more about why your sexual health matters and how to get treatment for Erectile Dysfunction.
Sexual Health and Erectile Dysfunction
According to The Official Foundation of the American Urological Association, during an erection, the spongy tissues relax and trap blood. The blood pressure in the chambers makes the penis firm, causing an erection. When a man has an orgasm, a second set of nerve signals reach the penis and cause the muscular tissues in the penis to contract, and blood is released back into the man’s circulation, and the erection comes down.
When a man suffers from ED, there could be several physical reasons that an erection isn’t happening correctly. These are important to know, as they are what can be indicating a more significant health issue. These reasons include:
- There is not enough blood flow to the penis
- The penis is not able to trap blood during an erection
- Nerve signals from the brain or spinal cord do not reach the penis
- Erections can be impaired by medications being taken for other health problems
- Treatment for cancer and other conditions can affect erections
Risk Factors for Erectile Dysfunction
There are many reasons an individual could be suffering from Erectile Dysfunction. They can be easily treatable, such as simple lifestyle changes, or they may require more involved therapy to treat. It is crucial to work with your doctor to find the root cause of your Erectile Dysfunction. Some known risk factors associated with Erectile Dysfunction include:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Kidney disease
- Little to no physical activity
- Mental health issues such as anxiety and depression
- Multiple sclerosis
- Over the age of 50
- Peyronie’s disease
- Stress from work, friends, relationships, or home
What Happens if Erectile Dysfunction is Left Untreated
If you have Erectile Dysfunction, it is vital to seek treatment as soon as possible. Not being able to get or maintain an erection can be much more than just a sign of stressful times—it can also be a symptom of a significant health issue. This is especially true if you have made lifestyle changes but are not seeing any positive results. With ED, some of the hidden health issues that may exist and should not go unchecked include:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Arterial blockages
- Increased risk of heart attack
- Increased risk of stroke
- Chronic kidney disease
In addition to health issues, untreated Erectile Dysfunction can also lead to:
- Low self-esteem
- Relationship issues
- Poor performance at work or school
Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction
The good news about Erectile Dysfunction is that it is a treatable condition. There have been many recent advancements in the technology and treatment of Erectile Dysfunction, including eliminating the need for pills and needles. Needles can be painful, and pills can be expensive. Both can also cause difficult side effects; and they all need “timing” or “scheduling” your sex life. Treatment utilizing injections and pills are ongoing as they only mask the symptoms of ED and do not treat the root cause of ED itself.
Luckily, Acoustic Wave Therapy can restore the necessary blood flow to achieve and maintain an erection while also repairing and regenerating damaged and aged penile tissue. Fast facts about Acoustic Wave Therapy include:
- It is a form of targeted sound wave therapy that uses high frequency, low-intensity energy waves to remove micro plaque that has accumulated in the veins and arteries of the penis
- The acoustic waves also trigger the body to release growth factors in the area treated to repair and regenerate soft tissue, including nerve endings and blood vessels
- The removal of plaque restores blood flow to normal levels, greatly improving erectile function
- The soft tissue repair results in heightened sensitivity and improved performance in the erection initiation process
- The treatments are speedy, discreet, and painless
- Each treatment takes less than 30 minutes and does not require any type of sedation or downtime
- Many men see results in as soon as three treatments
