Erectile Dysfunction Questions and Answers

Not being able to get and maintain an erection is referred to as erectile dysfunction (ED). Millions of men suffer from it, but it can be treated. If you’re thinking about seeking ED treatment in Weston but are holding back because of lingering doubts, our specialists at South Florida Men’s Health want to help by providing answers to some commonly asked questions about ED.

What Causes ED?

There are two main causes of ED, physical and psychological. Most medical professionals agree that the majority of cases are physical, but it’s also clear that feelings of anxiety, stress, or depression can easily make ED symptoms worse.

Is ED a Normal Part of Aging?

No, ED does not need to be part of aging. It’s true that older men may need more time and stimulation, but they should still be able to perform and enjoy sex.

If not aging, what are some of the common physical causes of ED?

Common physical causes include:

  • Diabetes – Up to 25% of diabetic men in their early to mid-30s are affected by ED, as are 75% of diabetic men in their early 60s.
  • Smoking – This habit constricts blood vessels and is a major cause of damage to the arteries leading to the penis. Smoking is implicated in 80% of ED cases.
  • Heavy drinking – Alcohol can damage the nerves leading to the penis and reduce testosterone levels while, at the same time, increasing the levels of the female hormone estrogen.
  • Drug side-effects – The side-effects of some prescribed drugs, particularly those used to treat high blood pressure, heart disease, peptic ulcers and cancer can contribute to ED. Up to 25% of ED cases may be caused by the side-effects of drugs prescribed to treat other conditions.
  • Prostate surgery ­– Up to 30% of men who have had their prostate gland removed because of cancer will experience ED.

Can ED be prevented?

Prevention cannot be guaranteed, but if you maintain a desirable weight, eat a healthy diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, stop smoking, drink less alcohol or none at all, keep your cholesterol and blood pressure in check and exercise regularly, you’ll reduce the likelihood of suffering from ED.

We hope these answers help you, and for ED treatment in Weston, we hope you’ll contact South Florida’s Men’s Health to schedule a confidential consultation with one of our ED specialists.

Client Testimonials

My energy level immediately spiked as in right after my first injections of b12 and testosterone. My sleep requirement has plummeted from needing 7-8 hours to needing 5-6 and I don’t get tired during the day anymore. I am already looking and feeling stronger. My stamina has increased greatly.

Very rarely do you find any business let alone health care that provides the level of personalized service Dr Steve Goodman does and his staff. I have been a patient for almost a year now and could not be more satisfied. Every call every message answered promptly and professionally. The only problem is that I cannot give a sixth star.

I have had a very positive experience with South Florida Men’s Health over the past four years. Their services and recommendations have helped me feel stronger and safer. Testosterone and peptides have various benefits for men’s health when used under proper guidance and medical supervision.

I have been on Dr. Steve's TRT for a little over 3 months. I have to say I feel much better. He is always available for any questions or concerns, and gets right back to you right away. Additionally at his recommendation I recently started taking Trimtropic twice weekly. OMG this is AMAZING. More energy, loosing weight, less brain fog, curbed hunger and no jitters.

I've been using South Florida Mens Health for over 3 years, and has changed my life for the better in many ways using TRT. Doctor Steve Goodman is by far the best in the practice. Always there for me on answering my questions, giving excellent advice and is considered my life coach.
