If you suspect that you may be developing erectile dysfunction, who should you go to? Who should you talk to? Who knows more about it? A specialist in urology is the one to give you a good diagnosis of erectile dysfunction.
Here we will give you all the information on the topic of the day: What can a urology specialist do for erectile dysfunction?
The urology specialist
The specialist in charge of giving adequate treatment to this condition is the urologist and he offers greater support when he is also a specialist in Andrology.
What exactly does a urologist do? The urologist is a specialist in charge of giving medical and surgical treatment of the urinary system (kidneys, ureters, bladder, prostate, urethra, etc) in men and women. as well as the male genitalia.
The difference between a general urologist and an uro andrologist is that a general urologist can provide a medical or surgical solution to everything related to the genitourinary system in men and women, as well as the male genitalia. The uro-andrologist is a urologist who, through highly specialized studies, focuses on providing a specific solution to male dysfunctions such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, hypogonadism, or Peyronie’s disease, and male genital aesthetics.
How to know if it is really necessary to go to a urologist to treat erectile dysfunction?
The symptoms of erectile dysfunction are very identifiable and in this blog, we have given a lot of information about them. It is necessary to consult a specialist in uro-andrology when for several months:
- There is difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection.
- Less presence of morning or night erections.
- When the inability to achieve or maintain an erection is associated with a lot of anxiety and relationship problems.
An expert urologist tells us more or less what this first consultation is like: “The first appointment with the urologist for erectile dysfunction is focused on knowing first of all the family history since some patients have a hereditary family predisposition. The uro andrologist will focus on knowing in detail your personal history, habits, and current diseases, in the same way, he will ask about a history of previous surgeries. Later, he will focus on your carnal dynamics, emphasizing symptoms associated with your reason for consultation. The most important for the urology specialist is the general physical examination (blood pressure, pulse, heart rate, respiratory rate, temperature, weight, height) and the specific genital physical examination, where he finds many findings that help define or confirm his diagnostic hypothesis. You could never confirm a diagnosis of erectile dysfunction without doing the aforementioned general and specific physical examination.
As for the costs of an erectile dysfunction consultation or treatment, you can request them by phone or online. Actually this is more accessible than you imagine, the average of any other private medical consultation. The treatment will depend on the doctor’s diagnosis and his recommendation according to each case, since the needs of each person are different and erectile dysfunction will be treated on a personal basis, depending on its origin.
What to do if the urologist confirms the diagnosis of erectile dysfunction?
First of all, be calm. This is not a tragedy or a life sentence. We tend to confuse the control of this condition with the permanent dependence on medicines like liquid tadalafil. If the treatment is effective and correct, the follow-up can consist of something as simple as diet and exercise, without necessarily requiring medication. There are always alternatives even for the most severe cases; Everything will depend on the causes of the condition, the general state of health -if there are other underlying diseases that must be treated- and, of course, on the patient’s discipline.
These are the most recommended treatments by urologist for erectile dysfunction
Oral medications: tadalafil liquid are the most common due to their ease of use and cost. Unfortunately, it is very common to see patients who, on the recommendation of a friend, advertising or the Internet, decide to take the blue pill without knowing the risks to which they are subject. The side effects of these drugs are generally tolerable (flushing, nasal congestion, headache, visual disturbances, upset stomach, or even fainting). But if the patient does not know that he has a heart condition, that he is hypertensive or diabetic, he could be aggravating the disease or putting her life at risk. For something the exams are essential and so thorough.
The same goes for natural supplements that, even if they are made from herbs, are still dangerous. Some of the ingredients contained in these products accelerate the heart rate or raise blood pressure, much like the effects of energy drinks with taurine.
Oral medications like tadalafil liquid are not for everyone, they should only be taken if prescribed by a uroandrology specialist.
Shock wave therapy. This is one of the most modern and safe treatments for erectile dysfunction. It consists of low-frequency acoustic waves that are applied directly to the genital to help regenerate tissues, relax blood vessels, stimulate circulation and thus achieve, in a reasonable period, longer erections. Shock wave therapy does not have any negative side effects, is painless, comfortable, and allows the patient to lead a normal life.
Hormone therapy. Testosterone is only indicated in the event of a deficiency in the production of this hormone due to hypogonadism. It is not recommended when low levels are associated with age. It is not a rejuvenator. The uro-andrologist or Endocrinologist, in this case, should be the ones who prescribe it.
Implants are used only in very specific and rare cases, when none of the other treatments have worked.
Sometimes, with the illusion of fixing the problem without medical help, we are convinced by misleading advertisements that promise to cure erectile dysfunction faster and easier. However, we must be aware that these products are not effective or safe. Most only get better briefly and more because of a placebo effect or patient expectations of finding a solution.
Whether we like it or not, the urology specialist is the one indicated for a diagnosis of erectile dysfunction. It is also the safest way to find a solution.
Going to a urology clinic, where you can be treated by a qualified uro andrologist, is the best decision you can make if you suffer from erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, Peyronie’s disease, low desire, or any other male dysfunction. Visit the urologist and solve your erectile dysfunction.
