What is E.D.?
Erectile Dysfunction sometimes called ‘impotence’ is the repeated inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Any disorder that causes injury to the nerves or impairs blood flow in the penis has the potential to cause ED. Incidence increases with age but it is not an inevitable part of aging. Erectile Dysfunction is treatable at any age, and more men are seeking help and returning to normal sexual activity.
How Does a Man Get an Erection?
An erection is the result of increased blood flow into the penis. Blood flow is usually stimulated by either sexual thoughts or direct contact with the penis.
When a man becomes sexually excited, muscles in the penis relax. This relaxation allows for increased blood flow through the penile arteries. This blood fills two chambers inside the penis called the corpora cavernosa. As the chambers fill with blood, the penis grows rigid. Erection ends when the muscles contract and the accumulated blood can flow out through the penile veins.
ED can occur because of problems at any stage of the erection process. For example, the penile arteries may be too damaged to open properly and allow blood in.
Potential causes of ED are numerous. They include:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Damage from cancer or surgery
- Relationship problems
- Drug use
- Alcohol use
These factors can work singly or in combination.
How is Erectile Dysfunction Diagnosed?
Medical and sexual histories help define the degree and nature of ED. Your medical history can disclose diseases that lead to ED, while a simple recounting of sexual activity might distinguish among problems with sexual desire, erection, ejaculation, or orgasm.
A physical exam can give clues to systemic problems. For example: if the penis is not sensitive to touching, a problem in the nervous system may be the cause. Abnormal secondary sex characteristics, such as hair pattern can point to hormonal problems which would mean the endocrine system is involved. The examiner might discover a circulatory problem or unusual characteristics of the penis that could suggest the source of the problem.
Several test can help diagnose Erectile Dysfunction. These include blood counts, urinalysis, lipid profile, and measurements of creatine and liver enzymes. Measuring the amount of free testosterone in the blood can yield information about problems with the endocrine system and is indicated especially in patients with decreased sexual desire.
What Are the Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction?
ED is defined by an inability to get or sustain an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. It has no other symptoms.
What is the Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction?
For some men, making a few healthy lifestyle changes may solve the problem. Quitting smoking, losing excess weight, and increasing physical activity may help some men regain sexual function. Cutting back on any drugs with harmful side effects is considered next. Psychotherapy and behavior modifications in selected patients has been helpful. In rare cases, surgery involving veins or arteries may be considered. Most Men can be treated with a simple medication that relaxes muscles and increases blood flow to particular areas of the body.

This place is awesome!!
I am actually feeling better; fewer hot flashes; and so much happier!
Thank you Joanna and your team for giving me back my quality of life!!
I have been a client for six months now and was struggling with extra weight and fatigue. I met Joanna while searching for a new clinic on the Internet. She was very knowledgeable and took her time going over my concerns. Since Joanna suggested this new protocol my weight is now under control and I have more energy then ever before.
Can’t recommend Hormone Logics enough! My husband and I worked with Joanna and did a 2 week cleanse and the results are amazing!! Although, we have both lost 20 lbs each, it is the inches we have lost and how we feel that we have noticed the biggest difference. Joanna is very personable, knowledgeable and does a wonderful job explaining the “why’s” and how foods or how the “diet” works the way it does. Although, I have to admit this isn’t/wasn’t just a “diet” for us; what we have learned thru this process is a new way of life!
Absolutely the best HRT clinic I have ever been to.
They do things by the book and their customer service is great.
They are friendly, helpful and accommodating.
I was taken care of and educated on the best methods to improve my overall health.
Great staff, very knowledgeable and supportive
I have been on a life style changing program for 4 months and lost 30 pounds,stopped all my prescription drugs, and take Hormone Logics multivitamin. I had a physical last week and my blood work was the best it has been in 20 years due to the life change and the weight loss my Doctor said to keep it up.
This has worked for my boat captain and now it is working for me.
I am 67 and feel great.
Fantastic experience with the entire staff.
JD and crew have been outstanding in patient service.
Absolutely number one anti-aging/hrt network indeed.
From the initial phone call to my Physicians appointment in Florida, everything has been first rate. I have felt comfortable every step of the way ! I own a Crossfit gym and work in the fitness industry, I had not been performing or living the life that I knew I was capable of and my blood tests confirmed that. I have been on therapy now for 4 weeks and improving every day. Any questions arise and I call my rep. Great thing is, no matter what time I call I hear back with a call or text within 15 minutes. The service has been great. Get your blood work done, call them, and START LIVING THE BEST LIFE POSSIBLE. – William , Gold Medal Fitness LLC.
I’ve been with Hormone Logics for well over a year now. JD, my patient coordinator is amazing. He’s like a book of knowledge with any question I ask him. Whether it’s about therapy, hormones, or even my blood work results, he always has the answer. Within a couple of months I was feeling amazing with an incredible increase in strength and energy.
I recently took it one step further and teamed up with Joanna Dara , Fitness / Nutrition Specialist at Hormone Logics. After 6 months of her nutritional plan the increase in my metabolism is incredible. I haven’t felt this good in a very long time. I’m very excited over my results and I look forward to working with the team @ Hormone Logics for many years to come.
Just had my first appointment with hormone logics. I have to say I was really impressed. Chris was able to answer all my questions. He was very professional and listened to my needs. I am very excited to be starting this process with hormone logics!
As a foot & ankle physician I treat a lot of patients with painful conditions from being over-weight, having osteoporosis-related injuries, and sports injuries. I’m thankful to be able to refer these patients to Hormone Logics to help them lose weight, supplement their nutrition, and get a consultation for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy for other issues they may have that I don’t treat myself. I trust this group and all the patient care coordinators at Hormone Logics to give my patients quality care and help them achieve optimal total health, rather than just focusing on one aspect of it.
There’s really not enough space to provide the deserved praise and thank yous to Hormone Logics and the staff.
Their experience and care is extraordinary.
Thanks for all your help.
I feel like a new person again.
This a great place to go for HRT, I have been using them for over 7 months, they are caring about my health issues, very consultative , and discreet, My orders are always placed and sent on time.
JD is a good guy, always there if I have any questions and very professional.
I am 54 years old female and was used to the way I was feeling due to perimenopause and it slowly made me feel worse and worse. I didn’t realize how long I had not been feeling like I used to when I was in my twenties and thirties until I started Hormone Logics bio-identical hormone therapy in Florida.
I am a new person.
