Erectile Dysfunction Treatment

Erectile dysfunction treatment is available for a wide range of ages of men. The treatment options available for you will depend on your age, the overall health and the core issue that is causing the problem. While it can feel embarrassing for some people to talk about erectile dysfunction, if you recognize that there may be an issue, you should schedule the necessary appointment with a doctor in order to get the treatment you need.

Urgent Care for Erectile Dysfunction

Many urgent care centers can provide immediate attention and treatment for erectile dysfunction. Urgent care for erectile dysfunction is an option that is available many people, especially patients of the Metro Urgent Care network.

Before a doctor can suggest any type of erectile dysfunction treatment, they will need you to complete an erectile dysfunction test. This allows doctors to assess exactly what is at the source of the issue, which will then allow them to provide a more accurate form of treatment for erectile dysfunction.

For example, a test may help to source the problem down to physical or mental causes.

Physical causes can include the following:

  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Obesity
  • Damage to nerves
  • Damage to arteries
  • Lack of exercise
  • Drinking
  • Smoking
  • Medication conflicts
  • And more

Mental/emotional causes can include the following:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Relationship issues
  • And more

It’s important to be as honest as possible in order to get the most accurate erectile dysfunction treatment. The last thing you want to do is get a form of treatment that is not effective, resulting in you having to take another test and get a different form of treatment. This will only cost you more time and money in the long run.
