Erectile dysfunction isn’t a normal part of aging, nor is it something you should just ignore. While it can be tempting to keep it quiet, there’s one person you should talk with about any symptoms you’re experiencing: your health care professional.
That’s because erectile dysfunction could be a symptom of another, much more serious health condition. Fortunately, at Lotus Health & Wellness in Brunswick, Georgia, Serena Skinner, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC, and our team are here to help. With erectile dysfunction expertise and discreet treatments like GAINSWave™ and the Priapus Shot®, we can help you protect your sexual vitality and overall health.
What erectile dysfunction can signal
Things like stress or relationship problems can cause erectile dysfunction. But it can also be a symptom of another condition affecting your body.
For example, erectile dysfunction could be the result of poor blood flow in the area. And your problems in the bedroom might be one of the earliest indicators of a larger problem. In fact, it could be a sign of cardiovascular disease. And that’s not all. Erectile dysfunction can be caused by a broad range of serious health conditions, including:
High blood pressure
Clogged blood vessels
The good news? Treating the underlying condition can resolve your erectile dysfunction.
What’s more, talking to a health care professional when you first notice any erection challenges can help you identify health problems early when treatment will be most effective. It’s important that you don’t keep any changes you notice to yourself. Bring them up with a medical expert to ensure you’re not suffering in silence when treatment could help.
This isn’t to say that all erectile dysfunction is a sign that something’s wrong in your body. It could be the result of something as simple as stress or a new medication. Still, though, because it could be an early symptom of a serious health concern, it’s worth bringing up with your health care provider right away.
