HOW IS MALE SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION TREATED?

Male sexual dysfunction is a broad term that is used when discussing issues such as Erectile Dysfunction, Low Testosterone, Low Libido, Peyronie's Disease, Premature Ejaculation, and Delayed Ejaculation. We realize how difficult it can be, so understanding what your partner is experiencing can help; the more you know about the condition, the better you can support your partner.

Male Sexual Health Issues

Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Did you know that roughly 30 million men in America suffer from various degrees of ED? The good news is that there is help available. As we like to say “if you have a penis, we can get you an erection.” This is true even if your partner hasn’t seen success elsewhere. Learn More

Low Testosterone/Andropause

Low T is a complicated condition that presents differently in different men, but treatment can change your partner’s life. Just checking testosterone levels will be of limited use unless someone has the expertise to understand it within the context of your partner’s overall health. And a treatment plan can’t be optimized unless a specialist continually monitors and calibrates it to achieve the best possible results.

You should also know that if prostate cancer or cardiovascular disease is of concern to your partner: Contrary to what you may have seen in the media, the preponderance of medical evidence clearly shows that treating Low T with TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy) does not increase your risks. In fact, studies correlate TRT with improved cardiovascular and overall health. Learn More

Low Libido/Low Sex Drive

There are many factors that can contribute to a man’s low sex drive, but treatment is available. Effective treatment plans begin with a thorough evaluation and usually involve a combination of different treatments. It is never a “one-size-fits-all” approach but fortunately, for the majority of the men we see, the underlying causes of low libido can be diagnosed and successfully addressed. Learn More

Premature Ejaculation

Roughly 20-30% of men suffer from premature ejaculation (PE). PE used to be attributed completely to psychological causes, but we know now that that isn’t true. The most important thing to keep in mind is this: Even when PE cannot be cured, it can be managed successfully. We just need to figure out which approaches work best for your partner. Learn More

Delayed Ejaculation

There is currently no “silver bullet” to cure delayed ejaculation. However, it can be managed, and sometimes even overcome, using a combination of medication, behavioral intervention, and hormonal therapy that is tailored to suit your partner’s specific needs.  Learn More

Peyronie’s Disease

Peyronie’s Disease (curvature of the penis) is treatable. We just need to find the least invasive approach that works for your partner. Maximal treatment always begins with an extremely thorough evaluation and usually involves a combination of different treatment methods. Most men can see significant improvement without surgery. The most important thing to remember is this:  No matter what, if you are adequately motivated, we will be able to help. Learn More

How can I support my partner?

The fact that you're reading this is a great first step, one that is so important to providing support, encouragement and understanding to your partner. 

As mentioned, many factors can contribute to male sexual dysfunction whether it's Erectile Dysfunction, Low Testosterone, Peyronies, etc., but fortunately, treatment options are available. As a partner, the most important thing you can do is to communicate your feelings about how his problem is impacting you and your sex life in a non-judgmental way, without pressure. An open and honest conversation about what has been going on, what could be causing it, and how you can address the issues together may positively impact your relationship. 

If you believe your partner is suffering from Low Testosterone, a great tool that may prompt a healthy conversation is our Low T Symptoms Quiz, which can help evaluate which symptoms your partner may be experiencing. Your partner can take the quiz alone or you both can take it together and discuss the results. His score may indicate that he has Low Testosterone and that it can be treated by a practitioner who specializes in the treatment of male sexual dysfunction. We also encourage you to check out top resources for women and our recommended products for men.

Our Men's Health Blog is also a great resource for understanding the causes and treatment options of male sexual dysfunction.
