Erectile Dysfunction

According to the Mayo Clinic, somewhere between 15 million and 30 million men in America alone suffer from erectile dysfunction. The number of men with erectile dysfunction could actually be higher, considering that many men may be hesitant to report poor sexual health to their doctor.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) can lead to other health and emotional problems, such as:

  • Depression
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Inability to maintain romantic relationships

Many men refuse to live with ED but take the wrong approach to solve the problem. One risky approach to treating erectile dysfunction is to take male enhancement pills. Such male enhancement pills can have serious side effects, according to Healthline, which may include:

  • Indigestion
  • Changes in vision or complete vision loss
  • Priapism, or an erection lasting more than four hours
  • Aches and pains throughout the body
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Flushed skin or rashes

Needless to say, these aren’t the effects one typically hopes for when attempting to treat their ED.

Fortunately, there are alternatives with fewer reported side effects, including:

  • P-Shot®
  • GAINSWave® therapy

The P-Shot® involves injecting platelet-rich plasma from a man’s own blood back into his penis, with numbing cream serving as vital assistance. The Priapus (P-Shot® treatment) has been shown to produce longer, stronger erections with little to no known side effects.

Alternatively, GAINSWave® therapy uses low-intensity, high-frequency soundwaves to clear micro-plaque from the penis, stimulating blood flow and tissue growth in a way that’s non-invasive.

Men can consider these treatments as a means to improved sexual health, as they may be safer than alternative forms of treatment for erectile dysfunction. Interested parties can look through the GAINSWave® treatment provider directory of providers for these therapies to schedule an appointment today.
