What is Impotence/Erectile Dysfunction/ED?
Erectile Dysfunction is a men’s sexual health condition where a man has trouble reaching and/or maintaining an erection. This condition is most commonly seen in men above the age of 40; however, it occurs in men of all ages and is very common. While ED is not typically considered a dangerous or life-threatening situation in and of itself, the underlying issue and/or the symptoms that arise from ED can be more serious. Issues may include more serious and/or frustrating physical and mental conditions such as: systematic vascular disease, a heart condition, cancer, depression, anger, low self-esteem, decreased energy, trouble sleeping, reduced sex drive, and relational tension, to name a few.
Who suffers with ED?
Men of all ages suffer with Erectile Dysfunction. It is a common condition most prevalently seen in men 40-years-old and up. ED occurs when internal systems and external stimulants do not work together in arousal situations. For a man to become aroused, his brain, hormones, nervous system, cardiovascular system, and other internal processes have to be functioning properly. And, these can be thrown off by physical issues or by mental issues. Being upset, stressed, frustrated, depressed, can all factor into a man being unable to become aroused. Most men will have an ED experience at least once in their lives because there are so many potential factors that can cause it to happen.

What is Low Testosterone?
Low Testosterone (Low-T) is a men’s sexual health condition. Low-T is most commonly recognized by the symptoms that it causes from breast growth to loss of sex drive. For men’s bodies to function properly, they need certain amounts of testosterone. If their testosterone level is low, it can mean that they have a more serious health condition causing the decreased hormone, or it can simply be the result of normal aging. It’s important to seek medical counsel to make sure you’re not dealing with a more serious, underlying health issue.
Testosterone is a naturally produced hormone that men need to experience healthy living. If a man doesn’t have the right amount of testosterone, he can end up having more serious health conditions along with just a general decrease in wellbeing. With Low-T, he may have trouble having sex, building muscle, maintaining energy, etc. Thankfully, there are treatments available that can help men get back their health. A medical professional can implement a standard blood test, discuss the man’s symptoms, and then present treatment options.
Why Seek Treatment for Low-T?
It’s important to seek treatment for low testosterone because of the many negative side effects that can result from it and because the cause could be a more serious health condition. Here are some Low-T symptoms:
- Hair loss
- Weight gain
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Loss of sex drive
- Sleep apnea
- Muscle Loss
- Decreased energy
- Increased irritability
- Memory loss
Let our team of licensed, medical professionals help you find treatment options. Our team specializes in men’s sexual health. We’ve helped thousands of men experience freedom from Low-T and get back to living a healthier lifestyle.
What Causes Low-T?
Aging is one of the primary causes of Low-T. As a man gets older, his body will typically begin producing less and less testosterone. Even though levels may continue to drop with age, it doesn’t automatically mean that a man will have a Low-T problem. But, in most cases, lower testosterone levels do result in various Low-T symptoms. Thankfully, there are multiple treatments available that can help get your testosterone levels back to normal allowing for greater energy, sex drive, muscle growth, and wellbeing.
How is Low-T Diagnosed?
By implementing a basic blood test, a medical professional can determine testosterone level. Looking at the level number and assessing the symptoms present, a men’s sexual health specialist can help identify a Low-T diagnosis and treatment options.
How is Low-T Treated?
The two primary treatments for Low-T are hormone therapy and hormone replacement. These therapies can help get a man’s testosterone level back to “normal.” At the Tennessee Men’s Clinic, our team is made up of experienced, men’s sexual health specialists who help men suffering with Low-T to take back their health.
What are the Potential Side Effects of Low-T treatments?
To best care for our Low-T patients, we continually administer blood tests for the men participating in Low-T treatments. We monitor these men closely to help us identify and address potential side effects early.
Potential side effects of Testosterone replacement include: Worsening of prostate issues (BPH and prostate cancer) including increase risk of developing prostate cancer; changes in red blood cell level, cholesterol or lipid levels, hormone levels, and PSA level. It can also cause permanent hair growth on face, chest, buttocks, or other areas of the body; head hair loss; mood or psychological changes such as increased anger or aggressive behavior; breast growth similar in appearance to that found in women; testicular shrinkage or atrophy; decreased sperm count leading to infertility; and, acne. It may also worsen sleep apnea and cause tissue edema. It may cause the development or increase the risk of heart attack, strokes, blood clots, high blood pressure, other cardiovascular problems, and death in people with or without cardiovascular or heart disease.

What is Premature Ejaculation?
Premature Ejaculation (PE) is a health condition where a man will ejaculate either immediately after or soon after sexual penetration, which oftentimes means that neither he or his partner have experienced much sexual stimulation at that point. PE can cause multiple negative symptoms like relationship tension, stress, depression, and frustration, along with several other mental and physical health issues. Most of the time, these symptoms arise after several instances of PE; that’s when it becomes an actual health concern. When PE happens on a very rare occasion, it is not typically considered a worrisome health condition; that’s something that most men will experience at some point in their lives.
What Causes Premature Ejaculation?
Premature Ejaculation is caused by both psychological and biological factors that range in severity. Causes can include: stress, anxiety, erectile dysfunction, an injury, relational tension, hormone and other chemical imbalances, and certain medications. If you’re experiencing PE, start assessing your situation by contacting or visiting Tennessee Men’s Clinic to speak with a men’s sexual health, medical specialist.
How is Premature Ejaculation diagnosed?
A medical professional will speak with the man to find out more about his situation to identify potential external and mental-health factors. He may also run some lab tests to check for hormonal imbalances and other potential internal issues. To expedite the diagnosis process, it’s very important that you be completely honest with the specialist, so that he can help identify the best treatment options for you. PE diagnoses have to be based on the specific situation of each individual, which is why we at Tennessee Men’s Clinic take the time to really understand each of our patients’ individual situations.
What are the Treatments for Premature Ejaculation?
Thankfully, while there are several causes of PE, there are also several treatment options to address the different causes. We offer treatments to address both biological and psychological conditions that cause Premature Ejaculation. Some treatments that we offer or suggest for men include:
- Distraction methods
