Men have unique reproductive and urologic health needs. For general health concerns, you can go to your primary care doctor, but in cases of men’s health issues, you will need a urologist to diagnose and treat you.
At a men’s health clinic, you can receive comprehensive, specialized care for problems such as erectile dysfunction (ED) and Peyronie’s disease. A men’s health clinic can provide you with effective treatments based on your preference. However, not all men’s health clinics are treated equally.
Finding the right clinic can be difficult, but here’s a couple of helpful tips.
An All-Male Clinic
If you are like most men, you may feel embarrassed about discussing issues like having painful or difficult-to-achieve or difficult-to-maintain erections. A female specialist may not be a good choice if this is the case. A clinic with female staff can also be off-putting and may prevent you from opening up about your problems or concerns. The right clinic for you will have all-male staff. In matters of virility, it’s easier to open up to a fellow male. To make sure feelings of embarrassment do not prevent you from getting the best treatment, choose a men’s health clinic with male medical professionals and staff.
Focused on Treating Your Specific Problem
Going to a clinic that specializes in treating your specific problem has a greater likelihood of producing better outcomes. For specific problems like erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease, some clinics may be able to offer better treatments than others based on their specialty. Treatments for ED often include medication, conservative treatments, and, if not effective, surgery. Medication is not exactly what you would call a solution for ED, because relief is temporary. In most cases, a combination of treatments is the best approach.
If you are willing to explore other effective but not readily available treatments that produce excellent results, consider shockwave therapy. It is one of the latest noninvasive treatments used for patients with Peyronie’s Disease and ED. Shockwave therapy uses shockwave pulses to target the plaque that has formed in penile blood vessels. It also stimulates nerve regeneration and the formation of new blood vessels. Clinical trials have been conducted for focused shockwave therapy and the results have been great.
Nitric oxide (No2) is a supplement that is prescribed to patients with ED to help improve circulation throughout the body. In most cases, ED is a circulation problem, with different possible causes. The natural ingredients in No2 help improve circulation and rejuvenate venous tissue.
