Why testosterone therapy?

Men with a low sex drive, fading energy, mood changes and erectile dysfunction may have low testosterone levels, also known as low-T. However, these symptoms can be caused by other reasons that cannot be ignored.

Levels of the hormone normally decrease with age. Men with certain health problems, including diabetes and obesity, also tend to also have low testosterone.

Men's Sexual Health

You may have low-T if you have the following:

  • anemia (low iron)
  • depressed mood or irritability 
  • fewer and weaker erections
  • less energy
  • less muscle mass and strength
  • loss of calcium from bones
  • low sex drive
  • more body fat

If you think you may have low-T, it is important to see a doctor to make sure you have low-T and not another condition. Many of the symptoms for low-T can be the result of other health problems. For example, decreased energy and depressed mood may be caused by a variety of different health conditions and not of low-T. Diagnosis of low-T begins with a review of your medical history, a physical exam and blood work to measure your testosterone levels.

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) comes in many forms, including skin gel, shots, long-acting pellets placed under the skin or patches. Dr. Edwards at Natural Radiance will help you determine which form is best for you.  

Why medications?

Both erectile dysfunction (ED) and premature ejaculation are two different, very frustration sexual problems for men, and both can be successfully treated with medications.

Some men with erectile dysfunction, or ED, find they can return to an active sex life by treating an underlying condition, such as high blood pressure or diabetes, or with counseling and lifestyle changes. But others find they may need medication to get and keep an erection.

The FDA has approved several prescription drugs you take orally to treat ED.  All of these work by relaxing your muscles and boosting blood flow to your penis, making erections easier to get and maintain. They are:

  • avanafil (Stendra)
  • sildenafil (Viagra)
  • tadalafil (Cialis)
  • vardenafil (Levitra, Staxyn)

These medications all work similarly to each other. However, there are subtle differences in how long they stay effective and how quickly they begin to work.

Levitra takes about 30 minutes to start working and the effects last a little longer than Viagra, about 5 hours.

Staxyn dissolves in your mouth. It contains the same active ingredient as Levitra and can begin working in about 15 minutes.

Viagra takes around 30 minutes to become effective and lasts about 4 hours.

Cialis lasts much longer -- up to 36 hours in some cases.

Stendra can start doing its thing in as little as 15 minutes, and its effects last up to 6 hours.

Some over-the-counter alternatives to prescription grade medications include: 

  • Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)
  • L-arginine.
  • Ginseng. 
  • Yohimbe. 
  • Propionyl-L-carnitine.

Trimix is a prescription medication that is highly effective for most cases of not only erectile dysfunction (ED), but also premature ejaculation (PE). It provides a solution that can remove the anxieties and performance issues surrounding the act of sex and can restore and deepen the sexual intimacy that may have been missing in the relationship.

Men's Sexual Health

The benefits of Trimix are:

  • Reliable
  • Fast-acting
  • Can be self-administered
  • Removes performance anxiety
  • Helps increase the ejaculatory latency time (ELT) over time in many men

Trimix contains three drugs from complimentary classes designed to act synergistically.  While the components of Trimix are, on their own, indicated for a vast number of different conditions, the practice of bringing them together in concert to treat premature ejaculation has helped many men dramatically improve sexual intimacy and their experience of sex.

Trimix allows a man to have sex without losing his erection even after he ejaculates, so that he may continue with intercourse and satisfy the sexual needs of his partner. By continuing to have intercourse, the patient is actually desensitizing the head of his penis.  Over a period of time of treatment, the ejaculatory latency time (ELT) will generally be extended even in the absence of Trimix Therapy.

However, like any treatment a man is considering, these medications for erectile dysfunction (ED) or premature ejaculation (PE) may not be for everyone. Every individual has a different bill of health and is suffering from ED and PE for different reasons. Thus, it is advisable to make an appointment with a sexual wellness specialist, such as Dr. Edwards at Natural Radiance, to find out what treatments options are available and if any of these medications is the right choice for you.


What is the P-Shot®?

Men's Sexual Health

The Priapus Shot®, or P-shot®, is a revolutionary procedure in regenerative medicine that uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to restore healthy tissue and optimize functioning of the penis. About 60 ml of blood is drawn and processed to extract the PRP. The penis is then anesthetized and then the PRP is injected into various areas. The whole process takes about an hour, but the actual injections take about 5-15 minutes.  Since your own PRP is used, no damage is caused to the penis during the procedure or from pumping.  Within 24-48 hours, you should be ready to resume all normal sexual function.

For erectile dysfunction (ED), the P-shot® can help restore normal erections by bringing growth factors and blood flow to the penis. Results can take up to 12 weeks to take effect, though they may be quicker with repeated injections.  Results vary from person to person and are also determined by compliance with daily use of the penis pump.

Immediately after the injections, the doctor will have you use the penis pump for 10 minutes. You then use the pump for 10 minutes at a time twice per day. Most guys do it first thing in the morning and again before bed, but you may adjust according to your schedule. The pump should be used like this for at least 1 month but ideally 3 months. The idea here is that the pumping is like a workout–you will get more reliable results with faithfully using the pump twice per day.

Results vary widely when it comes to gaining length or girth with the P-shot. Some men experience up to 1.3 inches of length and 1.1 inches of girth, but some may not experience any size changes. About 40% of men experience 20% of growth. So, your size experience is based on your initial size prior to treatment. The best chance at obtaining any size changes would be to use the pump as regularly as possible, and consider getting a series of P-Shots.

What is PT-141?

Men's Sexual Health

Whether you know it as PT-141 or by its other names Bremelanotide or Vyleesi, you will be amazed by its effects on your sexual function! Unlike many other compounds on the market, like Cialis or Viagra, it is a peptide. Peptides are created naturally within the body and therefore their synthetic variations tend to play nice with fewer side effects.

Men that may benefit from PT-141 are those that have difficulty achieving and maintaining an erection, or have difficulty finishing (ie. ejaculating).

PT-141 is a proven treatment for men experiencing erectile dysfunction (ED) as well as things like premature ejaculation (PE) (Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry, U.S. National Library of Medicine, 10 June 2007). With longer-lasting erections of up to six hours, you can go to bed confident.

Penile enlargement

Once erections are more reliable and satisfying, some men may want to explore the possibility of increasing your penis size.  There are several techniques that can help do just that.  

As stated earlier, the P-shot® can help with achieving and maintaining erections.  But in some cases, it can also increase size!  Results vary widely when it comes to gaining length or girth with the P-shot®. Some men experience up to 1.3 inches of length and 1.1 inches of girth, but some may not experience any size changes. About 40% of men experience 20% of growth. So, your size experience is based on your initial size prior to treatment. The best chance at obtaining any size changes would be to use the pump as regularly as possible, and consider getting a series of P-Shots®.

Men's Sexual Health

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers are injected to produce excellent penis girth enhancement with resistance to external compression.  This gives the penis a natural feel in both the flaccid and erect state. Results are durable with very satisfying cosmetic appearances.  There are several advantages to the use of filler over other more invasive techniques.  These types of fillers are made from HA— a naturally-occurring sugar substance in the skin — which are safe and hold-water, plumping the treatment area for long-lasting enlargement and rejuvenation. HA fillers for injection are preferred as the substance can be easily dissolved, if needed.

The benefits of HA filler to enhance penis size include:

  • No surgery
  • No stitches, scars or anesthesia 
  • Office-based procedure
  • Treatment time takes 15 to 30 minutes
  • Minimal to no discomfort
  • Enhances while both flaccid and erect
  • Appearance of a proportional bulge in swimsuits or shorts
  • Resume sexual activity in 1 week
  • Majority will still have enhancement at 2 years!

Typical gain in girth with this technique results in a 15-35% increase in circumference.  Studies have shown that female partners prefer an increase in penile girth (width) over an increase in length. In addition, clinical studies have shown that upwards of 80-90% of patients are completely or mostly satisfied with their results and their sexual partners reporting high levels of satisfaction. 

Penis enhancement procedure is an outpatient procedure that usually takes less than one 1 hour. Think of this procedure like a “lunch time” penis girth enhancement with immediate results. Daily activities and work may resume immediately after treatment. There is no downtime required.  See an immediate result with continued improvement for 2-3 weeks.  Your penis will have more thickness when soft and hard. Urination and erection will function normally. Duration of the results depends on the products used for the treatment. Sexual activity can resume 5-7days after treatment in most cases.
