We’ve all seen the ads — the market is flooded with promotions for products offering quick-fix solutions for men’s sexual health challenges. But do they really work?
In fact, some products can cause more harm than good without a complete health assessment by a men’s health expert. That’s why the team at Rio Grande Urology is committed to helping educate more men about their sexual health and when to seek treatment from a urologist.
We understand that talking about your sexual health may seem uncomfortable at first, but when you consult a urologist, you’ll get the sound advice and treatment you need from a medical perspective. Here are five reasons you should talk with a urologist about your sexual health.
1. Receive an Accurate Diagnosis
This is not the time to rely on self or online diagnoses. If you’re encountering symptoms such as erectile dysfunction (ED), you may be tempted to try a prescription for an ED medication or a testosterone injection. If you’re looking to maintain an active, healthy sex life, it’s time to talk to a urologist. Your urologist will complete a health assessment to help accurately diagnose the cause behind your sexual health challenges so you can get the right treatment that works for you.
2. Benefit from Comprehensive Treatment, Rather Than a Quick-Fix
There’s a reason many treatment options exist in this area — not every option works for each individual. And when you only focus on treating one symptom, it can result in a myriad of other health consequences if your medical history is not taken into account.
For example, some men turn to testosterone injections; however, testosterone is a hormone that affects other parts of your body and can lead to stroke, heart attack, or accelerated growth of prostate or breast cancer. (Yes, men can get breast cancer too.) Additionally, receiving incorrect doses of testosterone can lead to weight gain, trouble sleeping, incompetence, and other potentially harmful side effects.
When you consult with a urologist with expertise in men’s health, they take into consideration managing the health of your entire body.
3. Get Treatment Optimized for Your Health
Quick-fix solutions offered by many companies and clinics are a “one-size fits all” approach; they focus on one solution rather than what may be the best solution for your individual circumstances. Taking a pill or receiving a testosterone injection may only work temporarily or might work for one person and not another. When it comes to sensitive issues like your sexual health, you want to consult with a men’s health expert who has your best interests in mind.
When you schedule an appointment with an RGU urologist, you’ll receive an optimized health plan and long-term care, so you can ensure you’re getting the treatment that’s best for you.
