Maintaining a healthy and satisfying sex life is a key component to optimizing our physical health and emotional wellbeing. Although not uncommon, developing sexual health complications can be quite distressing to both you and your partner.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a highly common condition, and the risk for developing ED increases with age. In fact, it is estimated that 40% of men will develop ED by the time they reach 40 years of age, and this number continues to rise with age. In addition, those with pre-existing chronic health conditions (such as diabetes or hypertension) are much more likely to develop this condition.
ED is diagnosed in men who cannot develop or maintain an erection. Additional symptoms of this condition include the following:
This condition creates a significant psychological burden to ED sufferers, often leading to anxiety, depression and anger. However, it’s important to note that ED is not considered a normal part of the aging process, and it is treatable. People often go years prior to seeking treatment.

When we meet with patients who are experiencing symptoms of ED, one of the first steps we perform is a lab analysis to determine hormone levels. Low testosterone is highly correlated with sexual drive and function. Simply put, if your testosterone levels are low, the likelihood of you experiencing impaired sexual performance and satisfaction is high. In addition, low testosterone is associated with an increased risk to a variety of chronic health conditions, including but not limited to:
What to expect
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, is the most reliable way to overcome hormone deficiencies and imbalances. Bioidentical hormones have many benefits over other forms of hormones, most notably the absence of unwanted side effects that come with the use of synthetic hormones.
BHRT hormones are delivered to men in pellet form, and within seven to 10 days, you will start gaining hormone therapy benefits. The pellets release slowly over time, meaning you won’t get those peaks and valleys in your levels. In addition, one dose lasts approximately six months for men. Hormone therapy benefits have helped numerous men regain their hormone balance, and the benefits of hormone replacement can potentially do the same for you.
If you struggle with symptoms of sexual dysfunction, please don’t hesitate to schedule your complimentary consultation to see which treatment(s) may be the right option to bring you back to sexual wellness.
