If you’re going in to see an ED doctor sometime soon, you should go in prepared, and the best way to prepare is by coming up with the right questions to ask. With the right questions, you’ll be able to learn a lot about your issue, and you’ll also learn what you and the doctor can do about the issue. Here are five questions to ask an ED doctor like one of ours here at American Male Medical.
A problem like erectile dysfunction (ED) can be caused by an injury, a health condition, or even a medication. For example, a high blood pressure medication may be causing a case of ED or contributing to it. On top of that, there may be other factors involved in a case of ED, like psychological or emotional factors.
Since it’s important to understand a case of ED, and since there are many different potential causes and factors, you’ll want the doctor to help you understand your case and narrow down the causes and other factors. And once you and the doctor have an idea of what could be causing your problem, you may be able to actually address the problem.
If a patient’s case of ED is caused by low testosterone, the patient might need testosterone replacement therapy. If a patient’s case is caused by a condition like heart disease or high blood pressure, the patient may need a referral to see a cardiologist. Regardless of the cause, there may be other things a patient can do to help himself. You’ll want to know about these things and what the doctor can do to help you, and you’ll definitely want to know whether your problem is curable. There’s a good chance it is!
Many cases of ED are curable, which means the symptoms can be relieved entirely so the patients can live regular lives. In other cases, the symptoms of ED can be relieved greatly so the patients can still live healthy and sexually active lives. You definitely should ask the doctor about your case.
Many ED doctors offer effective treatments like sublingual tablets, Trimix injections, and wave therapy. In fact, wave therapy can actually increase blood flow in blood vessels and stimulate the development of new blood vessels in the treatment area. This particular treatment can actually fix ED entirely in many cases! For cases of ED that are caused by low testosterone, testosterone replacement therapy can help. With this therapy, many patients report an overall better feeling in their lives.
You should ask the doctor about the most effective treatment for you. This treatment will be the one that actually addresses the cause of your ED. You might benefit from additional treatments that address the other factors involved in your case, so you should inquire about these treatments too.
A treatment like a wave therapy is really safe since it has very few and generally minimal side effects. Testosterone replacement therapy is typically safe too, and so are the FDA-approved medications we provide at American Male Medical. For your peace of mind, just ask the doctor about any potential side effects of the treatment the doctor recommends.
