Erectile Dysfunction Q & A

What is erectile dysfunction?


Erectile dysfunction, also known as male impotence, is a common men’s health condition that occurs when a man isn’t able to achieve an erection or maintain it long enough for pleasurable sexual intercourse. 


Erectile dysfunction may be caused by physical or emotional health issues. In some cases, it can cause low self-esteem and confidence in men. At Prosperity Health and Wellness, Melinda is an experienced primary care nurse practitioner who can help you with your men’s health needs. 


She discusses your treatment goals and helps you find the appropriate care to improve your sexual performance and quality of life. 

Who is at a high risk of developing erectile dysfunction?


Many men suffer from erectile dysfunction, making it a common men’s health issue. However, older men in their 40s and 70s are more likely to experience erectile dysfunction than younger men in their 20s. 


Common medical problems that can lead to erectile dysfunction include: 


  • High cholesterol 
  • High blood pressure 
  • Cardiovascular disease 
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Peyronie’s disease 
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Anxiety 
  • Depression 
  • Certain medications, including antihistamines


Men who’ve had prostate surgery or a surgical procedure in the pelvic area are more likely to experience erectile dysfunction. 


To determine the underlying cause of your condition, Melinda reviews your medical history and asks about your medication regimen, lifestyle habits, and symptoms.

What treatments are available for erectile dysfunction?


Treatment for erectile dysfunction depends on the underlying cause. Prosperity Health and Wellness offers customized treatment plans to help boost your confidence and enhance your sexual health.


In some cases, Melinda may recommend lifestyle changes. For example, if you have high blood pressure or high cholesterol, she focuses on helping you lower your numbers through lifestyle, nutritional, and exercise counseling. 


If you have a unique medical condition like Peyronie’s disease, you may need medications or a surgical procedure to improve penile length and correct curvature. For some patients, emotional or mental health conditions are linked to erectile dysfunction. If you need more complex care, Melinda can recommend you to an appropriate specialist.
