Erectile Dysfunction Treatments

Erectile dysfunction is a complex condition that’s linked to a range of health issues, which makes improving general health an essential part of improving sexual health, as the morefertile PFPs explain. However, certain conditions and substances have a direct role in male sexual health and should be avoided whenever possible.

Medications

Speak to your MD if you’re taking any of the following:

  1.  Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressants like Prozac
  2.  Tricyclic antidepressants such as Elavil
  3.  Anti-anxiety Benzodiazepines such as Xanax
  4.  Benign prostate hyperplasia drugs (e.g. Proscar)
  5.  Hair-loss medications, including Propecia
  6.  Antihistamines, especially diphenhydramine (Benadryl) and chlorpheniramine (Chlor-Trimeton)
  7.  Anti-epileptic drugs such as Tegretol
  8.  Opioids such as Vicodin, OxyContin, and Percocet
  9.  Beta-blockers such as Propranolol and Metoprolol

Male Sexual Performance and PFPs

Systems Biology technology and the different morefertile® PFPs reveal distinct symptoms for single conditions because problems in body systems that have little obvious connection to sex can be the root cause. Diabetes, obesity and cardiac disease are examples of this, and the morefertile® PFPs make it much easier to understand what you can do to improve erectile function or a lack of libido.

There are distinct variations in how erectile dysfunction affects men, and the different symptoms reflect which body systems are affected most. There are seven recognised PFP variations connected to erectile dysfunction, which are:

  • Incomplete or partial erections that don’t last
  • An excessive interest in sex

  • Inability to get or maintain an erection
  • Low sperm motility, low sperm count
