We’re often asked if there is a connection between frequent urination and erectile dysfunction (ED). In a word, the answer is yes. It’s a common problem experienced by many men – know that you’re not alone. Studies have shown that 40% of men at age 40 and 70% of men at age 70 are affected by ED. A 2021 study noted that men experiencing ED have a high chance of also experiencing incontinence or frequent urination (LUTS), concluding that there is a correlation between ED and LUTS.
ED and an overactive bladder both have negative effects on a man’s quality of life. They can result in strained relationships due to lessening of sexual activity which often results in self-esteem issues and/or depression. Both are due to a weakening in the pelvic floor muscles which are the main support of the pelvic organs. When weakened, the results can be incontinence, erectile dysfunction, and premature ejaculation.
Up to now, Kegels have been the best option for both ED and incontinence. Now there’s a new treatment on the block – a non-surgical, non-invasive and no medication treatment that works – EMsella! This FDA approved treatment for men is a breakthrough in the treatment of ED and urinary issues. It stimulates the pelvic floor muscles far more than any Kegels can by engaging voluntary and unvoluntary muscles creating up to 11,000 contractions per minute. The discreet treatment takes place on the EMsella chair where High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Energy (HiFem) create thousands of contractions, strengthening the pelvic floor muscles.
The treatment is extremely non-invasive with no down time. The patent stays fully clothed during the sessions on the “magic blue chair” which last just under a half hour. Typical treatments are two sessions a week for three weeks and are done in our office. The benefits of EMsella are many and include:
- Increased bladder control
- End of urinary incontinence
- Increased penile rigidity and hardness
- Increased control over erections
- Increased time until ejaculation
- Reduced stress and anxiety
- Return of confidence!
