What is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile Dysfunction (or ED or impotence) is a common condition that affects a man’s ability to achieve or maintain an erection during sex. According to studies on sexual performance and men aging, by the age of 50, nearly 50 percent of men experience sexual performance issues. And, that percentage increases by 10 percent each decade, so by age 70, nearly 7 out of 10 men will experience Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Erectile Dysfunction itself is not considered dangerous, but the condition could be associated with more dangerous issues including: systematic vascular disease, heart conditions, renal failure, prostate cancer, depression, and others.
Who suffers from Erectile Dysfunction?
Though more typical in men age 40 and older, ED can manifest at any age. Many internal systems must be operating together, effectively, for male arousal: the brain, nervous system, cardiovascular system, hormones, and even emotions can help or hinder during sexual situations. Because so many factors can affect arousal, most—if not all—men can experience Erectile Dysfunction at one time or another.
You Can See Results on Your First Visit
Here’s a statistic that you probably didn’t know: erectile dysfunction can be effectively treated around 90% of the time. Too many men wait for years to seek treatment for their ED. And this choice can have devastating effects on their emotional health, their relationships, their self-esteem, and more. You shouldn’t have to suffer like this any longer.

We are so confident in our solutions that we will not charge you if our test-dose treatment* doesn’t work during your initial appointment. We can help you achieve optimal sexual performance, just like you remember. Don’t suffer one more moment longer.
*Some treatments we offer can have an immediate effect. In most cases, we will offer to administer a test dose of this treatment during an individual’s first visit to our office. Because this treatment is incredibly effective, we offer a guarantee with this first-visit, test dose: if it does not prove effective according to the standards outlined by our medical providers upon visit, then that individual’s visit is free.

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction?
A man suffering from ED may experience the following:
- Trouble getting an erection
- Trouble maintaining an erection
- Lack of or reduced sexual desire
Because ED can manifest due to a number of factors ranging from the basic (one glass of wine too many) to the complex (heart disease or systematic vascular disease), experts recommend that men suffering with ED consult with a medical men’s sexual health professional for treatment.
How is Erectile Dysfunction Treated and What are the Potential Side Effects?
Due to the range of conditions and circumstances that cause Erectile Dysfunction, there are also a range of treatment options.

What is Low Testosterone?
Low Testosterone refers to any situation in which the body’s levels of the testosterone hormone fall below the range of levels considered by the medical community to be “normal”. Low Testosterone, or Low T, can be the cause of health and sexual problems, but it can also be the result of other health issues or treatments.
Testosterone is a naturally occurring hormone that is most prevalent in men. It helps regulate and control a variety of sexual functions, but also contributes to muscle and bone strength. Thus, while Low Testosterone can lead to a variety of sexual problems, it also has implications for men’s total health.
Testosterone levels are frequently checked in a variety of standard blood tests. However, men whose testosterone levels fall within “normal” range may still experience the common symptoms of Low Testosterone.
Why Seek Treatment?
Men with these symptoms could benefit from an evaluation:
- Loss of libido (sex drive)
- Fatigue and decreased energy levels
- Muscle loss
- Weight gain
- Erectile dysfunction
- Memory loss
Our licensed and trained medical staff can analyze your testosterone levels and determine if certain treatments might restore your optimal virility. In many cases, treating Low Testosterone can lead to a fuller, more robust experience of day-to-day life.
What causes Low Testosterone?
As men age, their bodies naturally produce lower levels of testosterone than they did in early age. In some cases, this is normal and has no effect on sexual health or daily functioning. In other cases, men may grow accustomed to living life at “lower” levels than might be possible if their hormone levels were properly balanced by a licensed and trained medical provider.
How is Low Testosterone diagnosed?
Low Testosterone can be diagnosed with a simple blood test.
How is Low Testosterone treated?
Treatment options include hormone therapies and/or replacement. The medical professionals at the Rocky Mountain Men’s Clinic work with each individual patient to identify and treat Low Testosterone when it is affecting sexual health and overall vitality.
What are the potential side effects?
At RMMC, we monitor blood levels regularly to help detect possible side effects early, so, if necessary, we can take corrective action as soon as possible. Some men may experience worsening of prostate issues (BPH and prostate cancer), changes in red blood cell level, cholesterol level, hormone levels, and PSA level. Hair loss, mood changes, breast growth, testicular shrinkage, decreased sperm count, and acne. Treatments may worsen sleep apnea. And they may or may not increase the risk of heart attack and death in people with or without heart disease.
What is Premature Ejaculation?
Premature Ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates either before or shortly after sexual penetration, often with minimal sexual stimulation. Premature Ejaculation frequently results in unsatisfactory sexual experiences for both partners in a relationship, which in turn can lead to anxiety and stress that make the problem worse. Individual instances of Premature Ejaculation are extremely common and affect nearly every man at one point or another without requiring any special treatment. However, recurrent issues with Premature Ejaculation do require treatment, and there are many options available.
What Causes Premature Ejaculation?
Premature Ejaculation can be caused by high levels of stress or anxiety, hormonal issues, and certain injuries. It can also be a side effect of certain medicines.
How is Premature Ejaculation diagnosed?
Because Premature Ejaculation can be caused by issues ranging from psychological/emotional stressors to underlying hormonal issues or medicinal side effects, it is essential that patients seeking treatment be open and honest with their medical expert. Identifying the unique cause or causes of PE, for any individual, often requires some simple laboratory tests since hormones and reactions to certain medications often play a role in causing Premature Ejaculation.
Treatments for premature ejaculation?
Treatment options for Premature Ejaculation include certain supplements or medications, exercises and techniques to promote stamina and longevity, and a variety of other practices depending on the unique cause or causes affecting the individual patient. Rocky Mountain Men’s Clinic Medical Providers work alongside the patient to identify the optimal treatments for Premature Ejaculation that will promote longer lasting sexual pleasure for both partners.
