What is the top men’s sexual health challenge?
Optimal sexual health encompasses all the physical, emotional, mental, and environmental factors that affect your ability to participate in and enjoy sex.
Men may have sexual health challenges, such as the loss of their sex drive and difficulties with ejaculation or experiencing an orgasm. But the most common problem is erectile dysfunction.
What causes men’s sexual health problems?
The sexual health problems affecting men may develop as a result of:
- Daily stress
- Hormone imbalances
- Anxiety and depression
- Relationship problems
- Being overweight or obese
- Poor body image
- Worries about their performance
Erectile dysfunction (ED) occurs if you can’t have an erection or keep it long enough for sexual intercourse.
Many men occasionally struggle with ED due to fatigue, stress, or relationship problems. ED that becomes an ongoing problem usually has an underlying cause, such as:
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
- Low testosterone
- Cardiovascular disease
- Peyronie’s disease
- Neurologic disease
Any health condition or lifestyle habit (like smoking) that restricts blood flow to your penis can interfere with your ability to have an erection.
How are men’s sexual health problems treated?
Your provider at Garcia Weight Loss Aesthetics & Hormone Therapy treats ED with one of the following:
Medications like Viagra® (sildenafil) and Cialis® (tadalafil) improve blood flow by blocking enzymes that tighten blood vessels in your penis. As the vessels relax, blood flow increases, and you have a strong, sustainable erection.
Each medication takes effect at a different rate and lasts for a specific length of time. Your provider explains each one, how to use them, and what to expect.
Peptides are small proteins naturally found in your body, where they serve as hormones and trigger cellular activities. Synthetically produced peptides mimicking those in your body can improve your sexual desire and ability to have an erection.
How do I get men’s sexual health medications?
Garcia Weight Loss Aesthetics & Hormone Therapy offers an easy, secure process for getting ED medications. You complete the form available on their secure patient management program. After reviewing your information, they contact you, discuss your options, and then ship your medication in discreet packaging.
Your provider can also send the prescription to your local pharmacy if you prefer. However, pharmacy medications usually cost more.
