Sexual dysfunction can be an uncomfortable and embarrassing topic, however, there’s no reason to be ashamed. It’s actually quite common, especially after the age of 50, however it has nothing to do with age. Both men and women can suffer from sexual dysfunction for a variety of reasons, and in fact suffering from Erectile Dysfunction (or ED) can be a symptom or precursor that you may have an underlying health condition, so it’s definitely worth discussing it with your doctor.
What Causes Sexual Dysfunction?
As many as 30 million American men – at least 70% of men over 70, and 40% of American women suffer from some form of sexual dysfunction. It can be caused by something as simple as side effects from medication they’re taking for another health issue, such as hypertension, prostate enlargement, male pattern baldness or depression. In some cases, it can be a symptom of another health condition, for more information read about the conditions here.
Here are a few culprits that could cause ED in men:
Women of any age can experience sexual dysfunction when they have a loss of desire, sexual response, orgasm or pelvic pain.
Female sexual dysfunction can be caused by:
How can the P-Shot and O-Shot Help?
If menopause or age-related ED has started to slow you down, consider what regenerative medicine can do for you. It’s a quick in-and-out procedure that is natural, drug-free and provides longer-lasting results to help restore the passion in your relationship. The Stem Cell Center of NJ offers both the P-Shot for men and the O-Shot for women. These procedures offer a long-term solution, instead of a short-term fix that some medications provide. Both procedures use stem cell and cellular therapy to offer a safe and effective solution to sexual dysfunction. The P-Shot has no downtime and little to zero discomfort during the procedure – you can even exercise and resume sexual activity the same day. It uses your body’s own healing properties to regenerate the penile tissue, which in turn increases blood flow, creating a more robust sexual performance, erections and size.
The O-Shot procedure for women is also a quick procedure with little to no downtime, and with a topical numbing agent, it’s virtually pain-free. The O-Shot stimulates the growth of new, healthy cells, making the vaginal area more sensitive. Women report stronger orgasms, less discomfort, relief from stress incontinence, increased sensation and lubrication. You can read several women’s testimonials here. For both the P-Shot and O-Show, a small amount of blood is extracted, and then spun down to a concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) – which can be used in conjunction with exosomes and cellular therapy. These natural growth factors rejuvenate the penile and vagina tissues, creating more sensitivity.
The Exosome Difference
The Stem Cell Center of NJ is unique in that it’s a step ahead – and a step above – in recognizing and using science-based therapies, such as stem cell therapy, but also incorporating exosomes – which some say may be more important than stem cells. Our practice only uses self-harvested stem cells, and we frequently use exosomes in conjunction with stem cell therapy. Exosomes aren’t cellular, but rather they are vesicles – tiny packets of information – that get released from cells and move on to other cells. Think of them as microscopic flash drives that carry necessary information to different locations within the body. In his abstract “Exosomes: From Garbage Bins to Promising Therapeutic Targets” academic editor Martin Pichler states “Several reports have implicated exosomes in stem cell maintenance and plasticity, indicating that stem cell-derived exosomes have a pivotal role in tissue regeneration following injury.” Picher goes on to say that exosomes have a role in wound healing and have anti-inflammatory functions.
We Offer Several Solutions to Sexual Dysfunction
In addition to using exosomes to treat sexual dysfunction, the Stem Cell Center of NJ offers Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), cellular therapy, growth factor therapy and also shock wave therapy – which increases blood flow and the body’s natural growth factors by causing a natural inflammatory response. Our goal is to help you regain passion, despite your age! Please research the different options, and contact us today to learn about which treatment option is best for you.
