How Can a Man's Sexual Health be Improved Without Surgery?

Keep reading to find out some of the ways a man's sexual health can be improved without surgery.
What is male sexual dysfunction?
Sexual dysfunction can affect people of any age, but men's sexual health issues are more common among older men. These issues may include a loss of desire, ejaculation disorders (such as premature or delayed ejaculation), or erectile dysfunction. These issues are both physical and psychological and can prevent a man or his partner from being sexually satisfied.
By using noninvasive approaches to sexual wellness, Dr. DeLucia can help men regain their sex drive and confidence in the bedroom. Specific benefits of men's sexual health treatment include:
- Increased libido
- Better erections
- Improved blood circulation
- Enhanced sexual performance
At The Secret Orchid, treatments are quick, safe, and effective, and do not require downtime since they are not surgical in nature.
What are nonsurgical treatments for men's sexual health issues?
There are multiple therapeutic options to treat men's sexual health issues and improve their performance and stamina. These include:
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)
This treatment is a nonsurgical approach to rebalancing hormone levels to improve libido and sexual function. Follow-up visits are necessary to monitor outcomes.
Pelvic stimulation with the EMSELLA® chair
This treatment uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate contractions in the pelvic floor muscles to prevent erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. No downtime is necessary, and the patient remains fully clothed throughout the process.
Low-intensity shockwave therapy using Alma Duo™
This 30-minute treatment boosts blood circulation using a process called low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy. It is not considered painful or invasive and requires no healing time. The outcomes are long-lasting and can help men with erectile dysfunction. Often, six treatments are needed to experience the full benefits.
Platelet-rich therapy P-Shot® injections
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) requires a blood draw from your arm and injection into targeted areas of the penis. Men can return to normal daily activities afterward but may need to remain abstinent until cleared by Dr. DeLucia. Results can last up to three months.
Causes of sexual health issues in men
When the causes are physical, the above nonsurgical interventions can help. Of course, like many sexual health issues, causes may be psychological and include past trauma, current stress, or relationship issues. These issues require different kinds of solutions, such as psychological therapy.
Depending on the cause of the sexual dysfunction, there are many treatment options for men, many of which are nonsurgical in nature.
In some cases, a healthy lifestyle (both physically and emotionally) can help prevent sexual health issues. However, it takes testing and honesty between a patient and his doctor to get to the bottom of these types of issues.
