If you are having a problem with erectile dysfunction, or any other similar problem, then a sexual health clinic is generally not the best place to go for help. They tend to specialise in the treatment and avoidance of sexual diseases and infections. Occasionally they may help with reproductive health and birth control, but these tend to be add-on services rather than core ones.
So how can I get help?
There are many places that you can get help, support and advice from to help with your erectile dysfunction so do not worry. Here are just a few of the services that you may want to make use of:
• Your local G.P or family doctor. They are probably the first place that you would think of contacting and they should always be able to help you. Because your G.P is a General Practitioner of medicine, then he is used to dealing with all aspects of health and illness that affect the human body. This includes anything that prevents your body from working as it would normally, so if you are having problems gaining or maintaining an erection, he can find out why this is happening.
• A Consultant Specialist. If your doctor cannot help you then he will refer you to a specialist that deals with this area of the body, often located within the Urology Clinic. Here they may run you through a very detailed and specific questionnaire (often referred to as the International Index of Erectile Function or IIEF) which will help the specialist to find out what is causing your ED so that he can treat it effectively.
• A private clinic. You may want to consult with someone via a private clinic. This may be covered by insurance if you have private medical insurance, but if you are not sure, check with your provider. Clinics like this can sometimes help in areas that traditional medicine may not. For example, some hypnotherapy clinics claim to have great success with treating ED with hypnosis if it being caused by emotional or psychological problems. You may also want to explore other alternative remedies such as acupuncture or even a herbalist before trying drugs such as levitra – it really depends on the reason for your ED. You may want to visit your doctor first and then make a private clinic your next port of call if you feel it could be helpful.
So as you can see, there is plenty of help around to resolve the problem with your ED. Whether it is a temporary problem or something more chronic caused by ill health, there is a solution out there to assist you.
