What we measure
This test looks for signs of health issues that can affect erectile function. As well as being influenced by mental health, erectile dysfunction can occur for a number of different reasons, including heart disease, diabetes, and a hormone imbalance. This test can help you figure out whether your symptoms are due to physical causes.
This test can help indicate health issues that could affect erectile function.
Erectile dysfunction is defined as the inability to get and/or maintain an erection for long enough to have sex. It’s very common and happens to most people assigned male at birth at some point—but if it keeps happening over time, this can signal an underlying problem.
How we feel about sex—if we’re nervous or stressed, for example—can affect erectile dysfunction but there are also a number of physical explanations for it.
To become and stay erect, for example, there needs to be sufficient blood flow to the penis. Heart disease and diabetes can interfere with this. Throwing off the body’s regular, finely-tuned hormonal balance can also have a knock-on effect on sexual function.
This test can spot signs of health issues that can cause erectile dysfunction, to help you figure out what’s causing your symptoms.
what to expect
In your results, you’ll receive a list of measurements that tell you how much of each substance is present in your blood, plus the calculations mentioned above, and whether these readings fall within a normal range.
A normal range is the amount you’d typically see within a healthy person.
If you have an abnormal reading, this signals that something inside the body isn’t working as it should be. This isn’t a diagnosis—only a doctor can diagnose you with a health condition. Rather, your results are a kind of status report that tells you what appears to be working well and what warrants closer investigation.
Blood tests one of the best tools we have for identifying health problems. Your doctor may use your results to inform their diagnosis, decide whether to do more tests, or help determine which treatments may help.
