4 Steps to Erectile Dysfunction Treatment

For some men, taking the first steps into a medical clinic can be intimidating. This can especially be true for some men struggling with erectile dysfunction (ED). However, the first step is always necessary to start properly treating and managing ED. Knowing what to expect and how to prepare for your visit might help alleviate the anxiety that comes with acknowledging your symptoms. Pinnacle Men’s Health is here to guide you through your first steps towards ED treatment.

Schedule an adequate amount of time for a full examination. You can’t expect to find an ED solution on a 30 minute lunch break. You and your doctor need an adequate amount of time to discuss sexual, medical, and psychological history in order to accurately diagnose symptoms. Be ready to allocate approximately two hours for your first visit to Pinnacle Men’s Health.

Inform your men’s health specialist that ED has become an issue. This can be one of the most difficult but significant parts of treatment: admitting that ED is a problem for you. Always remember that ED is not uncommon for men. According to healthline.com, approximately 26% of men under the age of 40 have ED and about 50% of men between the ages of 50 to 60 have mild ED.

Answer your doctor’s questions honestly. The Doctors and Staff at Pinnacle Men’s Health will review your medical history as a part of your consultation. This will involve questions about your health history, sexual drive, and mental health all factors that could potentially cause ED symptoms. The more open and honest your answers, the more information your doctor will have to find the best ED treatment for you.

Follow your doctor’s recommendations for treatment options. After testing and a full diagnosis, your doctor will most likely offer more information about your current situation and recommendations for treatment options such as WAVE therapy. Many people are familiar with the use of acoustic waves to help people with kidney stones and musculoskeletal complications, but WAVE therapy can also be used to restore erectile function.

There comes a time in some men’s lives when maintaining a strong sexual drive and erection become increasingly difficult. This can cause strain in relationships and overall wellbeing. Pinnacle Men’s Health in Jacksonville offers WAVE therapy to help improve blood flow in the penis and help increase sexual drive.
