What Is Erectile Dysfunction?
It may be an uncomfortable topic to discuss, but many men are struggling with erectile dysfunction (ED), the most common sexual health problem, characterized by the inability to achieve or maintain an erection firm enough for sex. Typically affecting men over the age of 40, ED can be treated with a variety of methods so understanding the root cause is important for the success of treatment. Common causes of ED include imbalanced hormones, obesity, high blood pressure, excessive drug or alcohol use, medication side effects, depression, injury, and more. It is, however, not a normal part of the aging process and should be treated. Our team at Tru Male Medical is pleased to offer men the most advanced medicinal options as effective solutions for ED. Contact us today in Oak Brook, IL to schedule your consultation, and find out which treatment may be ideal for your sexual health.
How Is Erectile Dysfunction Treated?
Your ED treatment will be selected based on your unique needs and goals. Tru Male Medical offers prescription medication options for erectile dysfunction. To determine if you are an appropriate candidate for ED medications, board-certified internal and geriatric medicine physician Dr. Robert Marshall will assess your medical history, overall health, and any medications you are currently taking. After he reviews your patient profile, Dr. Marshall will recommend the best ED drug or treatment for you. Some medications have inconvenient side effects, such as headaches, upset stomach, nasal congestion, vision changes, and dizziness.
Treatments for erectile dysfunction may also be performed using sound wave therapy. This successful treatment naturally repairs and activates the growth of new vessels in the penis, which significantly helps to increase blood flow. This type of therapy results in the proliferation of smooth muscle cells to restore tissue elasticity.
What Are the Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction (ED) at Tru Male Medical is a condition often linked to age, with symptoms becoming more prevalent as men grow older. Typically, men may start experiencing difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection during sexual activities, alongside a noticeable decrease in sexual desire. These changes can begin as early as the 40s but are more common in older age groups. While age is a significant factor, ED can also indicate other health issues. Understanding and managing these symptoms early is crucial, and Tru Male Medical is committed to providing comprehensive care to address these concerns effectively.

Erectile Dysfunction FAQs
How does sound wave therapy differ from medication treatments for ED?
Sound wave therapy for erectile dysfunction is a noninvasive option that stimulates the growth of new blood vessels in the penis, improving blood flow and restoring tissue elasticity. Unlike prescription medications, which may come with side effects like headaches or nasal congestion, sound wave therapy generally has fewer side effects. Dr. Robert Marshall can discuss the pros and cons of each treatment during your consultation at our Oak Brook, IL office.
Are there any precautions I should take when using ED medication?
Yes, while ED medications can be highly effective, they may interact with other medications you're taking or worsen certain medical conditions. It's important to provide a complete medical history to Dr. Marshall, including any medications you are currently on, so he can prescribe the most appropriate treatment for you. Also, avoid excessive alcohol consumption as it may interfere with the effectiveness of the medication.
Can lifestyle changes impact the effectiveness of ED treatments?
Absolutely. Lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, and stress management can play a significant role in the effectiveness of ED treatments. Implementing healthier choices can sometimes even reduce the severity of ED symptoms. Dr. Marshall and the team at Tru Male Medical are committed to providing a holistic approach and can offer advice on lifestyle adjustments that may complement your treatment plan.
