Tips for Controlling Mood Swings from Low-T

When men experience mood swings, the feelings can often be overlooked or completely swept under the rug. Here are some tips for men who notice changes in their emotional health:

  • Monitor your daily mood with a journal. Find a small journal that is easy to transport. As you progressively track your mood over weeks, you might be able to notice certain situations or times of the day that trigger emotional changes. Don’t forget to track the good moods, as well as the bad.
  • Seek out help through a men’s sexual health clinic. Some men can experience emotional swings as a result of having low testosterone (low-t). Schedule a testosterone assessment at Memphis Men’s Clinic to see if testosterone replacement therapy in Jackson, TN is right for you.
  • Make small lifestyle changes. Most people cannot change their lifestyle overnight, but making small strides towards a healthier lifestyle is a great start. You can start by simply going to sleep earlier, declining a second beer, or practicing mindfulness meditation.

Mood swings are a common side effect of andropause, the male version of menopause, and the result of a hormonal imbalance due to low-t. Studies have shown that some men with low testosterone have reported anger, confusion, depression, and other mental health issues.

Five Ways to Win Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and for many it’s a wonderful time of romance and love. Unfortunately for others, it can be a poignant reminder of certain performance-related difficulties. Flowers and chocolates are great gifts that every woman loves, but wouldn’t it be nice to take things one step further, just like you used to? Well, believe it or not, you can. Here are five proven solutions to help make 2018 the best Valentine’s Day you’ve had in ages.

  1. We’re all familiar with the little blue pill. And for a lot of guys, it works great – for a while. What’s not often mentioned however, is the fact that ED pills often lose their efficacy over time, or sometimes aren’t effective at all! For cases such as these, we have a range of customized ED treatment plans with proven results.


2. Maybe drugs aren’t right for you because of certain medical conditions, or you simply prefer treatments that take a more natural route. Wouldn’t it be great if you could treat ED with long-lasting results, using your body’s own natural capabilities? WAVE Therapy is the answer you’ve been searching for.


3. Maybe you’re looking for a bit ‘more’? After all, they do say ‘go big or go home’. Despite years of late-night infomercials perhaps convincing you otherwise, there is a way to boost your size – naturally! It’s called the Priapus Shot ®, and has no negative side effects.


4. Instead of performance issues in the moment, perhaps you feel a general malaise, or that you have less energy and drive than you used to. This could be a sign of low testosterone – something that happens to men naturally as they age, and is totally treatable!


5. Finally, if you are happy with your sexual performance and overall mood, then a box of chocolates and bouquet of roses are never a bad idea on Valentine’s Day! Changes in sexual health are often driven by broader underlying health issues such as heart disease or diabetes. More information is available here. 

Tips for Dealing with Premature Ejaculation

If you are a man struggling with premature ejaculation (PE), you are not alone. PE is common among men of all ages and there are many causes. Just acknowledging that premature ejaculation has become an issue can help improve control and delay ejaculation.  Discover new strategies to prevent PE during sex or masturbation.

Thicker Condoms ­– Do some research online and find a thicker condom brand. Penis sensitivity is one of the most common premature ejaculation causes among men.

The Start-Stop Technique –This is a very common approach to preventing early ejaculation that can be used alone or with your partner. During sex or masturbation, when you start to feel the urge to ejaculate, stop the stimulation for about a minute. Once you have gained control, start again and repeat this whenever the urge arises.

The Squeeze Technique – If the start-stop technique is not for you, try the squeeze technique. Prior to ejaculation, squeeze between the shaft and the glans for about 30 seconds. Some men have reported that practicing the squeeze technique can help with future ejaculation control.

Distraction and Deep Breaths – Other than the abovementioned techniques, there are also some psychological techniques that can help reduce PE. When the sudden urge to ejaculate arises, try distracting yourself with boring thoughts or taking deep breaths to help reduce arousal.

Talk to your doctor if PE symptoms continue or begin to worsen. The experts at Memphis Men’s Clinic can help you with specific Doctor supervised treatments designed to help men with PE.  Contact Memphis Men’s Clinic at (901) 602-3770 for the best erectile dysfunction and PE treatment options.

Common Myths about Erectile Dysfunction

Man typing questions on lap topAs soon as symptoms of erectile dysfunction (ED) start to appear, many men will begin asking about and searching for information regarding causes and cures. Despite the many resources available, there are still many myths associated with ED that can sometimes discourage men from paying attention to their sexual health or finding treatment.

Here are the most common myths and facts about erectile dysfunction.

Myth: ED is not a normal and natural part of aging for males.

Fact: Many men will experience erectile dysfunction. There are over 50 million men in the US who experience ED symptoms such as decreased sex drive, difficulty maintaining an erection and getting an erection.  In fact 40% of men over 50 experience these symptoms.

Myth: Going to a clinic is unnecessary, because erectile dysfunction does not warrant speaking to a doctor.

Fact: Although ED itself is not dangerous, erectile dysfunction may be a sign of more serious medical problems like diabetes or high blood pressure. It is important to keep track of your sexual health and regularly check in with your doctor if you experience any symptoms of ED.

Myth: The only way to treat ED is with pills or surgery.

There are many treatment options for erectile dysfunction.  The Memphis Men’s Clinic specializes in ED treatment and on the comfort and privacy of its patients when providing treatment for men’s sexual health in Memphis, TN. We offer many ED treatment options including WAVE Therapy, a new non-invasive treatment for ED.

An Unusual Culprit of ED: Bicycling

man on a bikingTypically being involved in sports and other physical activities is associated with improving your sex life. Working out produces endorphins that assist with the release of sex hormones and improves blood flow, which can help combat ED. However, when it comes to aggressive bicycling, you should be aware of certain risks to your sexual health.

When your weight is not distributed properly on the bike seat, you may put pressure on the perineum, an area of your body that contains nerves and arteries connected to reproductive organs. The bike seat can create pressure that may inhibit blood flow to an area of your body that is critical for having and sustaining an erection. If you experience penile numbness after intense riding, you may have damaged your pudendal artery. This kind of injury may contribute to temporary or permanent erectile dysfunction (ED).

If you are seeking ED treatment in Memphis, visit the Men’s Clinic to learn about your options. Make your appointment today at

Fortunately, there are some steps you can take to prevent ED issues related to biking. Changing to a bike seat that is not as narrow and wearing padded biking shorts can help distribute pressure. Adjusting the height of the seat can prevent you from being in a position where the legs are totally extended and more pressure is put on the perineum. Finally, taking breaks and shifting positions throughout longer rides can help prevent injuries.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy and Energy Levels

Have you been experiencing chronic fatigue and excessive weakness? This may be related to low testosterone levels, commonly called Low T. The demands of work, home and everyday life can be tough to meet when your energy levels are low. As your health and mood are altered by weighty feelings, a lack of motivation and the heaviness of lethargy, daily activities become enormous obstacles.

Low testosterone levels have the potential to alter not only your sense of well-being and physical fitness, and your sexual Libido as well. As testosterone levels decrease, the interest in and desire for sex begins to falter. Testosterone is an essential hormone that contributes to the development of muscles, the size of the penis and testes, bone strength and sexual interest.

Some men may associate a reduced interest in sex and lack of energy with aging, but a significant drop in testosterone levels may be a condition that can benefit from treatment. You can find out if you are a candidate for testosterone replacement therapy in Jackson, TN by visiting Memphis Men’s Clinic. Your Memphis Men’s Clinic physician will do a simple blood test and evaluate other health factors to create a custom treatment plan designed to address your testosterone level.

As you receive testosterone replacement therapy, your previous level of energy may return and your sex drive may increase. Men suffering with erectile dysfunction often find the treatment can assist with their ED and find it easier to have and maintain an erection. Some men undergoing treatment report additional benefits such as weight loss and improved mental clarity. Schedule your appointment to evaluate testosterone levels today at


Is Your Exercise Routine Lowering Your Testosterone Levels?

man going on a long distance runYou’ve probably seen a million ads about increasing your low testosterone levels. Awareness of Low-T is increasing and while it may seem like a scam, chronically low testosterone levels can cause a number of health issues such as erectile dysfunction, depression, a drop in fertility, decreased libido, decreased muscle mass, and increased fat storage. This doesn’t mean you should go out and buy the latest “ultra man boosting” pills, because you definitely shouldn’t. But you should be concerned about whether or not your habits are to blame. In this case, we’re focusing on endurance training.

How Can Exercise Be Bad?

Exercise is not bad, but the type of exercising you do can affect your hormone levels. In men, endurance training has been linked with lower levels of testosterone. This is likely correlated with a hormone called cortisol.

Cortisol is released when your body is under stress. While cortisol is actually a major factor in healthy weight loss, overdoing exercise can actually create an excess of cortisol. And when there is too much cortisol present in your body it may actually start eating away at your muscles instead of your fat cells. It also suppresses the output of testosterone.

How Can I Fix This?

If you are a runner, you may need to cut back on mileage. A few miles a couple times a week can be healthy, but an intense endurance training routine can be hurting your testosterone levels. What you can do to increase your testosterone levels is switch up the types of exercise you are doing. Opt for high intensity interval training – short bursts of high intensity cardio with longer intervals of low impact exercise – and weight lifting rather than long, drawn out endurance training. This will give you the intense workout you need in a shorter amount of time, which means you’ll see the results you want without messing up your hormones.

Another option for those who suffer chronically low testosterone is to make an appointment at Memphis Men’s Clinic. We offer low testosterone treatments in Jackson, TN and the surrounding areas.

Increasing Sexual Performance as You Age – It’s Possible

older Asian man with glasses smiling outdoorsAs men age, they often find that they just can’t perform in the bedroom like they used to. Whether you deal with erectile dysfunction, loss of libido, or any number of other issues, it can be difficult to maintain the sex life you’re used to. Many men rely on a certain little blue pill when they need to, but this is a temporary solution to a long term problem.

Why Does Sex become Difficult after 40?

After the age of 40, your chances of developing erectile dysfunction significantly increase. That’s because your body is going through andropause – a stage in a man’s life where his testosterone levels begin to fall. What that little blue pill does is treat a symptom of andropause. It doesn’t get to the root of the problem, which are your fluctuating hormone levels.

How Do I Improve My Sexual Performance without Pills?

Remembering to take a pill every time you want to have sex can be a pain, but there is a long term solution. If you want to improve your sexual performance, you need to get your hormones back at a healthy level.

Testosterone replacement therapy can improve your sexual performance and your overall health. Increasing testosterone levels slows down the aging process, making you feel more energetic, clear-headed, and youthful. Now, not only will you be able to perform when the moment is right, but you will feel healthy enough for sex as well.

If you are looking for a way to increase sexual performance in TN, make an appointment at Memphis Men’s Clinic. We have experience treating erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and low testosterone.

When to Seek Treatment for Low Testosterone

black and white portrait of an African American man with a beardWhen you think about low testosterone, a condition also known as Low-T, you probably think of problems in the bedroom. While Low-T does cause sexual health problems like loss of libido and erectile dysfunction, it also affects your overall health in a major way. What most men think of as age-related conditions could actually be a symptom of Low-T. So when should you start seeking low testosterone treatments in Tennessee?

If you’re over the age of 30

Testosterone levels slowly begin to decline by as much as 1% per year once a man reaches the age of 30. This is referred to in the men’s health community as andropause. If you smoke or drink, are overweight, are frequently under stress, or have conditions like type 2 diabetes or prostate cancer the decline could be accelerated, leaving you with much lower levels than you should, even during andropause.

If you don’t feel healthy anymore

Many men attribute things like loss of energy and libido, hair loss, and erectile dysfunction to the aging process, but this may not be entirely true. While these things are very common in men past the age of 30 or 40, they are also symptoms of Low-T. It’s important to seek treatment for Low-T because it can lead to a wide variety of health issues, including:

  • Weight Gain/Muscle Loss
  • Memory Loss
  • Depression
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Hair Loss
  • Irritable Male Syndrome (IMS)
  • Loss of Sex Drive
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Fatigue/Decreased Energy Levels

If you are experiencing one or a combination of the above symptoms, you may benefit from low testosterone treatments at Memphis Men’s Clinic. Make an appointment with us today. A simple blood test to check for Low-T is included in your first visit to our men’s sexual health clinic.
