What causes sexual dysfunction in men?

Sexual dysfunction is a prevalent issue among men with erectile dysfunction (ED) as one of the most widely known forms of sexual wellness conditions. Younger men deal with anxiety, psychological issues, negative lifestyle factors and the lasting effects of injuries interfering with their performance. However, these factors can leave a more serious impact on older men. Performance anxiety is one of the main causes of premature ejaculation (PE) with psychological factors playing into why men could eventually develop PE along with nerve damage or substance abuse.

ED emerges in older men through these issues as well, but a majority of cases with sexual dysfunction in older men occur due to conditions that hinder blood flow. With their blood circulation slowed down or blocked, an erection can be far more difficult to achieve. Additionally, hormone imbalances and health issues that occur later in life such as diabetes or vascular diseases can have a negative effect on a man’s sexual health.

How is male sexual dysfunction typically treated?

Confidence-related issues or psychological factors are usually treated through therapy or counseling. Premature ejaculation is often treated through behavioral changes to prolong or avoid ejaculation at an earlier rate, Kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor and counseling to deal with performance anxiety that may cause PE. Topical or oral medications can also be provided to reduce sensation in an erection long enough to delay an orgasm.

For erectile dysfunction, many solutions are provided on an as-needed basis. Prescription medication such as Viagra and other male enhancement supplements are given as a means of achieving an immediate erection. Devices such as a vacuum pump may be given as well to help men gain erections.

Patients with hormone imbalance can undergo treatment plans that involve boosting their testosterone levels which may improve their sexual health. However, these are not recommended for men with prostate or breast cancer.

What can Appalachian Rejuvenation do for you?

At Appalachian Rejuvenation, we provide our patients with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to help restore sexual capabilities in men who regularly face erectile dysfunction. PRP is a plasma concentrate that features platelets and regenerative growth factors. These factors signal the body’s own cells to construct and proliferate blood vessels and sensory cells to enhance the body’s recovery process.

Using the patient’s blood, PRP is extracted from whole blood to create a serum that is used to stimulate natural processes in the body. After PRP is injected, the growth factors in the plasma disperse, allowing them to aid the body in creating new blood vessels which will eventually increase blood flow to the penis.

What are the benefits of PRP treatment?

Regenerative medicine has a positive effect on helping men recover from sexual dysfunction. Many issues with sexual dysfunction stem from poor circulation. PRP has the ability to improve blood flow by rejuvenating the passageways that provide the blood supply required to achieve an erection.  As a result of the increased circulation, men can expect fuller erections and, in some cases, more girth. Those with premature ejaculation would also see improvements as PRP can help achieve firmer erections and longer stamina so that an orgasm isn’t reached too soon. Although PRP won’t directly change hormone levels, PRP’s regenerative factors keep the tissue and cells located in male reproductive organs receptive towards hormone therapy solutions.
