Should I Order Erectile Dysfunction Pills Online? (with Marah Hehemann, MD)
We’ve all heard the saying “what goes up must come down”, but what happens if it can’t get up, and it just stays down? Well, the same laws of physics apply in erectile dysfunction, or ED. The prevalence of ED is high, especially in America, but why aren’t there more men getting help from their health care provider? Asking for help is tough, especially about a sensitive topic like this. However, getting the right advice from the right place can make a huge difference. It can promote a fulfilling sex life and aid in family planning.
Dr. Marah Hehemann sheds some light on these issues in today’s episode. She is a fellowship trained surgeon and researcher, assistant professor of urology at University of Washington, patient advocate specializing in male reproductive and sexual health, and a leader in men's health. Dr. Hehemann shares reputable sources to turn to if you are experiencing ED and the different treatments available to the public. She explains other men’s health issues including vasectomy and testosterone replacement/supplementation.
