How testosterone injections can improve erectile dysfunction
It is not uncommon for males to experience erectile dysfunction (ED) as they age. Testosterone levels naturally decline with age, which can contribute to the development of erectile dysfunction in men over the age of 40. However, we have found low T and ED in men even as young as 20 years old. For many patients who visit Dr. Jeffrey Buch in the Dallas, Texas, area, certain types of injections and treatments may be used to address this concern. This includes testosterone replacement therapy, known to improve erectile dysfunction in some men, though it is not a guaranteed cure. It may be administered along with prescription medications for erectile dysfunction to ensure proper performance and improved self-confidence.
What types of testosterone replacement therapy may be recommended?
There are three main types of testosterone replacement therapy: injectable, topical gels and implanted slow release testosterone pellets. Injectable testosterone replacement therapy is the most effective type of treatment, but it also carries the risk of severe side effects. Topical testosterone replacement therapy is less effective but avoids injections for men who dislike injections. Testosterone pellet insertion through a small puncture in the butt cheek slowly releases testosterone over 4-6 months per treatment.
Using today’s technology and the body’s natural healing process
Another option when it comes to improving testosterone levels and addressing problems such as penis curvature and erectile dysfunction is the use of PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and stem cells. Injecting these elements, which are naturally produced by the body, into the penis can help improve conditions like erectile dysfunction. When administered by an experienced and trained professional such as Dr. Buch and his team at Low T Guru in the Dallas, Texas community, patients can enjoy more confidence in the bedroom and complete sexual intercourse and activities.
