Sexual Performance Treatments Bergen Co.
Sex plays an important role in a man's life. It is something that he starts to think about early on and, with the proper sexual maintenance, will think about the rest of his days. But, problems that occur during any phase of the sexual response cycle can prevent an individual or couple from experiencing satisfaction from a sexual activity. Unfortunately, sexual performance is a topic that most men and women are hesitant to discuss. Seniors are most commonly affected but physical and psychological causes can occur in adults at all ages.
According to statistics published by the National Institutes of Health, sexual dysfunctions are highly prevalent and affect about 43% of women and 31% of men in a recent population-based study. Male sexual functions involve a number of organs and structures in the genitalia. Erectile bodies are an essential for engorgement of the penis with blood, which leads to penile tumescence. Peripheral and central stimuli as well as sexual cues activate spinal nuclei that maintain penile erection and result in ejaculation.
Most Common Male Sexual Dysfunctions*
There have been significant advances in the understanding of how sexual performance treatments can provide proper maintenance to support the physiology of the male sexual function. Some common types of male sexual dysfunction include:
- Decreased sex drive - Low libido often is linked with low levels of male testosterone hormone (or Low-T). Metabolic diseases, performance anxiety or certain medications can lead to a reduced interest in sex.
- Erectile dysfunction (ED) - The inability to get or maintain an erection for sexual intercourse effects about half of the men over age 40 at sometime in their life. Diseases, penile injuries, stress, and unhealthy habits (lifestyle issues) are common causes linked to ED.
- Premature ejaculation (PE) - The exact cause of PE are unknown but studies suggest that nerve damage, medications and a breakdown of serotonin may play a major role in early ejaculation.
- Inhibited ejaculation - Delayed ejaculation is common in men with long-term health issues, alcohol abuse, following surgeries, drug side effects, and poorly managed stress.
- Retrograde ejaculation - Nerve damage to the bladder can force ejaculate to flow backward. This is most common in males who suffer from diabetic nerve damage or following bladder or prostate surgery.
- Penile Curvature (Peyronie's) - The two most likely causes of Peyronie's disease are penis injury and genetic predisposition that can result in penile curvature that prevents penetration and/or causes severe pain during intercourse.
When seeking treatments for male performance and sexual maintenance, our doctor may ask about your symptoms and want to discuss your medical and sexual history in detail. Although this may include sensitive questions, do not be embarrassed and remember it is important to answer these personal questions honestly.
*NOTE: Every man's body is different, so male sexual performance issues can vary greatly from one person to the next.

Frequently Asked Questions about Sexual Performance
When Do Men Reach Peak Sexual Capacity?
The fact that males reach peak sexual capacity in their late teens is true but somewhat misleading. Although few eighteen-year-old males have erectile problems, their youthful sex drive does not necessarily make for good sex. Truth is many men who ignore sexual performance and maintenance issues often experience a loss in confidence at the age where sexual activity is the most pleasurable.
Are ED medications the Best Way to Treat Sexual Performance Issues?
Although ED meds may have their place, our men's health specialists help you choose from the latest therapies for male sexual enhancement. Pills only mask the symptoms, whereas pulsed shockwave treatments, bioidentical testosterone replacement, and PRP therapy can promote healing to rejuvenate penile tissue.
Does It Take Multiple Doctors to Improve Male Sexual Performance?
For most men, our experienced men's health specialists can perform male sexual performance treatments and on-going sexual maintenance at NJ GAINSWave. However, due to the complexity of sexual physiology, our doctor may recommend an interdisciplinary approach, including endocrinology, precision imaging, urology, psychology or neurology to provide the most appropriate interventions based on the cause of sexual difficulties.
Can't I Treat Myself Using Herbal Remedies and Supplements?
You run a risk when you decide to go it alone by relying on herbal remedies and dietary supplementation. It is important to see a doctor, get a thorough medical exam, and discuss the best solutions for maintaining good sexual health. Sometimes, a deficiency can lead to conditions like high cholesterol that may hinder sexual performance but long-term sexual maintenance is seldom as simple as taking a pill.
How Common Are Male Sexual Problems?
Both acute and chronic male sexual disorders are common in men of all ages and ethnic backgrounds. Impotence (erectile dysfunction) is the most common male sexual disorder affecting more than 150 million men worldwide. Male sexual dysfunction generally is characterized by either the consistent inability to sustain an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse or the inability to achieve ejaculation, or both.
Is this new?

Due to ED, I have not been sexually active in over 5 years. Oral ED medications did not work for me. Now after getting the GAINSWave, I feel confident that I can be spontaneous and enjoy my relationship with my wife again. It's not very often you get a second chance to start over at my age, and I'm grateful for GAINSWave therapy.
