With around half of the male population suffering from impotence at some point throughout their lives, erectile dysfunction is an incredibly common and often simple condition to diagnose and treat. Regardless of the cause of the condition, American Male Medical has specialists at the clinic location to ensure that the treatment for erectile dysfunction is as comfortable and effective as possible to allow you to continue your activities with confidence.
When visiting a physician to diagnose the cause of erectile dysfunction, several examinations and tests may be necessary to ensure that the diagnosis is accurate. A physical examination will typically include the physician carefully examining your penis and testicles to evaluate sensation, and he may need to perform a prostate exam to check your prostate. If the condition seems likely to be caused by blood flow, they will want to check your blood pressure. A Doppler ultrasound may be performed to check the blood flow through the penis. None of these examinations will be painful; they are used just to determine the cause of the ED. If the cause seems more likely due to psychological factors, your doctor may suggest treatment through counseling or therapy.
Clinics that offer health care services for treating erectile dysfunction will be able to provide an accurate diagnosis through several examination and testing procedures and will offer different treatment options depending on your needs. There are several potential causes for erectile dysfunction, whether the condition is due to a physical condition or is caused by psychological factors, making there several different options for treatment that may include lifestyle changes, prescription medications, or a referral to a therapist or counselor. An erectile dysfunction clinic will have all of the necessary tools and information to ensure an accurate diagnosis with a clear cause and will be able to offer any treatment suggestions that may be beneficial for your condition. With erectile dysfunction specialists at each of our locations, American Male Medical Clinics is highly qualified and experienced in making treatment for your erectile dysfunction as comfortable and effective as possible.
Depending on the cause of the condition, erectile dysfunction can be identified through a physical examination of the penis, testicles, and prostate to check the nerves for sensitivity or lack thereof. In some cases, a Doppler ultrasound may be necessary to determine if the cause of the erectile dysfunction is due to blood flow, tracing it to a lowered blood pressure or potential heart condition. Erectile dysfunction could also be the result of a change in hormone levels, making urine or blood tests another useful test. If none of the tests or examinations for physical problems aid in the diagnosis, the doctor will likely explore the possibility that the condition is caused by psychological factors such as anxiety, depression, stress, or relationship troubles. If this seems to be the case, they will likely refer you to a therapist or counselor to treat whatever the cause may be and reverse the erectile dysfunction.
It is recommended that you visit a clinic once you start to notice the symptoms of erectile dysfunction. If the condition is developing due to an underlying health condition, it would be best to have it treated as soon as possible to rule out anything serious or life-threatening, such as a heart condition. If the erectile dysfunction is likely due to anxiety or stress, the condition will likely only persist or worsen if those psychological factors are not addressed, as erectile dysfunction can quickly take a toll on the intimacy in your relationship and lead to even more anxiety or stress. Erectile dysfunction is a very common condition that most often has a simple treatment, so there is no shame or fear that should be associated with visiting a clinic, especially one that specializes in the condition, as there will be a specialist available that handles this condition every single day, and chances are you will be able to start treatment immediately.
