The Necessary Conversation You Need to Have About Sexual Health

Sexual health is an important part of a man’s overall physical and emotional wellbeing. Some men shy away from discussing sexual issues with their doctors, but it’s an important conversation to have, especially when issues arise.

Sexual wellness encompasses a number of factors:

  • A man’s sexual drive
  • Testosterone levels
  • Sexual function and performance

For men experiencing a decline in sexual health including symptoms of Low T or loss of sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, and problems with sexual performance, it may be time for a sexual check-up.

3 Steps to Ensuring Your Best Sexual Health

Check Your Testosterone

Low testosterone (Low T) affects almost 40% of men over the age of 45.[1] Because testosterone levels decline as you get older, it’s not uncommon to experience symptoms including low libido, lack of energy, mood changes, loss of muscle mass and weight gain. These symptoms of Low T can be managed successfully with targeted treatments such as Testosterone Replacement Therapy, for example, which can have you back to feeling like your former self.

A quick and easy blood test performed in our on-site lab can check testosterone levels in a matter of minutes.

Address Sexual Dysfunction

Some 40% of men over age 40 have experienced erectile dysfunction (ED) at some point in their lives.[2] This inability to achieve or sustain an erection is a very stressful condition for men.

ED is brought on by lack of blood flow to the penis, which can be caused by conditions such as Peyronie’s disease or cardiovascular issues such as high blood pressure.

New and exciting therapies are now available to treat ED. GAINSWave® Therapy, for example, is an innovative and non-invasive therapy now available at Men’s Health Memorial. This painless and effective ED treatment uses high-frequency sound waves to restore blood flow and regenerate blood vessels in the penis. And, unlike common oral ED medications, GAINSWave has no side effects.

GAINSWave has also been shown to help men achieve stronger erections for improved sexual performance and even better orgasms. That’s what we call a win-win!

Lose Those Pesky Pounds

Maintaining a healthy weight is not only important for your physical health, but also for your sexual wellbeing. Studies have shown that men who are overweight or obese have a higher incidence of erectile dysfunction and hormone disturbances (Low T).

We’ve talked to many men who say that losing weight can be more challenging as they get older even with a healthy diet and regular exercise.  Men’s Health Memorial offers a medical weight loss program designed to work with your current diet and exercise program to enhance your efforts and help you lose weight faster and healthier.
