ED Q & A

What is ED?

ED is a common medical problem many men experience, and it occurs when you’re unable to get or sustain an erection long enough for intercourse. ED can affect your relationship, as well as your self-esteem and self-confidence.

It isn’t unusual for men to experience impotence from time to time, but if your inability to get an erection is affecting your quality of life, Holly at HAR Wellness can create a treatment plan that restores your sexual health.

What causes ED?

You may develop ED from a physical or emotional cause. When you’re sexually aroused, the nerve endings in your penis send out chemicals that increase blood flow to your penis to support the erection. If there is a disruption in this process, which can be from an underlying physical or emotional cause, you may not be able to sustain an erection.

Physical causes of ED include:

  • Inadequate blood flow to the penis due to hardened arteries or diabetes
  • Damaged nerve endings due to diabetes
  • Inability to trap the blood in the penis
  • Medical treatments or medication that affects the function

Emotional causes of ED include:

  • Depression or anxiety
  • Stress at work or home
  • Relationship issues
  • Concerns about your sexual performance

You can develop ED at any time, but it most often affects men as they get older. You may be at greater risk of developing ED if you have a medical history of diabetes or high cholesterol. Smoking is also a risk factor for ED.

How is ED treated?

Holly develops a personalized treatment plan for your ED. Your treatment may depend on the underlying cause of your ED, as well as your medical history. To help improve your erections, she may prescribe various medications.

To improve penile health, she may recommend stem cell therapy or platelet-rich plasma (PRP). These treatments are a form of regenerative medicine that may improve your sexual health by stimulating the growth of new blood vessels and nerve endings to the penis.

Holly offers the revolutionary P-Shot® for men with a low libido and ED. The P-Shot contains PRP and is injected into the shaft of your penis. In addition to helping improve your erections, you may also experience an increase in penis growth and improved orgasms.

ED is a common health concern for men, but you have many treatment options to help improve your libido. To schedule an appointment for a consultation with Holly, call HAR Wellness today, or book online.
