Erectile Dysfunction, Testosterone, and Hormone Replacement

What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction is the inability to get and keep an erection. While having trouble getting an erection from time to time isn’t concerning, if it is an ongoing issue, it can affect your self-confidence and lead to relationship problems. Erectile dysfunction may also be a sign of an underlying health condition that requires treatment.

Common symptoms of erectile dysfunction may include:

  • Trouble getting an erection
  • Difficulty keeping an erection
  • Reduced libido

The cause of erectile dysfunction can result due to issues with hormones or physical or psychological issues. In many cases, testosterone replacement can help to treat this condition.


Healthy individuals who are tired of dealing with erectile dysfunction can often benefit from testosterone replacement therapy. However, men who have prostate cancer or breast cancer, have severe urinary tract problems, untreated sleep apnea, or have uncontrolled heart failure should not receive this treatment. To learn more about candidacy and if testosterone replacement is right for you, contact our office today to schedule a consultation appointment.  


“I have been a Botox patient for years and had my breast augmentation done as well. The doctor wasn't the typical doctor. He actually sat down and spent time with me making sure I fully understand everything and made me feel less anxious. The office is well kept and the staff was very quick and informative! I would recommend this place to everyone.”

The Treatment

In cases where erectile dysfunction is caused by low levels of testosterone, hormone replacement therapy might be recommended. This treatment is an effective way to restore balance in your testosterone and other reproductive hormone levels to improve symptoms. Hormone replacement therapy involves the use of supplemental hormones, which are available in a variety of delivery methods including gels, pellets, injections, and topical creams. The main goal of treatment is to provide your body with a continuous stream of hormones.

Hormone therapy for erectile dysfunction offers many benefits, including:

  • Improved sexual function
  • Easy to use
  • Discreet
  • Minimal side effects
  • Long-lasting results
