Men's Health Q & A

What is men’s health?

Men’s health is a field of medicine that focuses specifically on the male body. If you’re experiencing conditions that are unique to the male body, a men’s health specialist like Dr. Pregenzer can help improve your condition and restore your quality of life. Dr. Pregenzer treats an array of issues at ED Specialists of Connecticut, including erectile dysfunction, low testosterone, anorgasmia, and premature ejaculation.

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction is the inability to achieve or sustain an erection that’s strong enough for sexual intercourse. ED has a wide range of causes, from psychological factors (like stress or depression) to physical conditions (like diabetes or high blood pressure). Dr. Pregenzer offers several FDA-approved treatments for ED, including medications to enhance blood to your penis and surgery to implant a mechanical penile pump.

What is low testosterone?

Testosterone is a male hormone produced mainly in your testicles. It’s responsible for your sex drive, sperm production, and building bone and muscle mass.

Decreased testosterone production is a natural effect of aging, but there are some conditions that can also contribute to an underproduction of the hormone, including obesity, infections, and diabetes. The symptoms of low testosterone include:

  • Reduced desire for sex
  • Change in sleep patterns
  • Impaired strength
  • Weight gain
  • Emotional changes

Dr. Pregenzer can try to increase your testosterone levels with hormonal therapy, which might include injections, subdermal pellets, gels, or skin patches. 

What is anorgasmia?

Anorgasmia, also known as Coughlan’s syndrome, is a chronic inability to achieve orgasm, despite sufficient sexual stimulation. It has many causes, ranging from psychological to physiological, and there are several treatment options to address the issue. Dr. Pregenzer will perform a physical and discuss your medical history before working with you to devise a particular treatment plan. 

What is premature ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation is when you ejaculate before you or your partner would like. In some cases, premature ejaculation might occur before any sexual penetration. Premature ejaculation is common and not necessarily a cause for concern with regards to your health, but it can be frustrating if it occurs frequently.

In most cases, the cause of premature ejaculation is psychological, but biological factors can sometimes play a role, as well. Dr. Pregenzer can recommend a variety of treatment options, including psychological therapy, behavioral therapy, or medication.
