Erectile Dysfunction Q & A

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction is a condition where you have difficulty achieving an erection or sustaining an erection firm enough for sexual activity. While many men experience erection issues from time to time, ongoing difficulties require a health evaluation at Praxis Wellness Center.

Common causes of erectile dysfunction include underlying health conditions like:

  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Sleep disorders
  • Low testosterone hormones

You can also experience difficulties maintaining an erection due to psychological issues, like depression and excess stress.

If you take certain medications to treat existing health issues, they may interfere with your ability to achieve a healthy erection.

How is erectile dysfunction diagnosed?

The team at Praxis Wellness Center offer in-office evaluations to assess your overall health and pinpoint the cause of your erectile dysfunction. Your provider discusses your health history, use of medications, and your overall lifestyle.

You may need blood work or other diagnostic testing to identify underlying health issues that are affecting your sexual health. Blood tests also evaluate hormone levels to confirm low testosterone levels or other hormonal imbalances. 

How is erectile dysfunction treated?

Treating erectile dysfunction initially begins with addressing underlying health issues that may be interfering with your erections. For men with low testosterone, Praxis Wellness Center offers hormone therapy to replenish and rebalance testosterone levels. 

The team at Praxis Wellness Center also offers injection therapies that can boost your ability to achieve and sustain a healthy erection. This treatment uses a compounded formulation known as Tri-Mix-L II, which your provider injects into your penis.

The compound dosage you receive is specially formulated by an experienced pharmacist at ImprimisRx® pharmacy to ensure potency and quality. They prepare 10 single doses of the compound that are in powder form and have a long shelf life at room temperature. When you are ready for the injection, the compound can be reconstituted for immediate use during in-office injections or for use at home. The Praxis Wellness Center staff can properly train you to inject the compound yourself.

A single-dose injection can provide you with results that last for up to six months and your provider can discuss your expected treatment plan during your consultation.
