Did you know that Dr. Blend specializes in wellness way beyond hormone replacement therapy? Our practice offers all aspects of healthy aging, including sexual wellness.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) affects approximately 50% of men over the age of 50, to some degree. Upwards of 80% of men remain silent about their sexual health, including their ability (or inability) to achieve and/or maintain an erection. There are an array of causes of ED, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, smoking, alcohol consumption, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, kidney disease, diabetes, obesity, sexual boredom, Peyronie’s disease, prostate issues, and declining testosterone. We would be lying if we said we didn’t all want good sexual energy in our lives. Sex increases joy, longevity, tissue health, and sleep quality along with decreasing depression and stress. If you are not enjoying this aspect of your life, seek professional advise and learn more about your options. There are many solutions for both males and females.
There are four phases to the sexual response cycle- desire/libido, excitement/arousal, orgasm and resolution. ED can play a negative role in any one of these phases. A short questionnaire called SHIM (sexual health inventory for men) and a history review/physical examination will be completed to evaluate your sexual health. Do not wait to get an evaluation or treatment until you are no longer able to perform. Just like mental and physical health, sexual health needs attention, too. Get your sexual performance back to its full potential and be honest with yourself- are you performing at 100%? We have multiple modalities to assist males AND females!
