Turning to aphrodisiacs, which stimulate sexual desire, is an age-old way to naturally help boost your sex drive and combat erectile dysfunction. While consistent problems related to sexual performance often require treatment to see significant improvement, it can never hurt to supplement your diet with these fruits and vegetables that can have been linked to positive side effects like increased libido, testosterone production and blood flow.

Go Green

There are certain aphrodisiacs most people are familiar with. You’ve probably overheard people mention how chocolate, red wine and oysters can get you “in the mood.” But there are some tasty items that are less well known for their link to sexual arousal. Adding asparagus and avocado to your diet is one way to...


When it comes to testosterone, some men do not realize the importance of monitoring healthy levels. Testosterone plays a key role in general health, balancing stress hormones, and body composition. However, at around 40, some men will begin to see a sharp decline in testosterone levels that can sometimes negatively affect their overall health. Memphis Men’s Clinic is here to give you some lifestyle changes, you can start today, to help maintain healthy testosterone levels:

Pay attention to what you eat/drink

This does not mean you have to keep track of all your meals in a journal, but it is a good idea to pay attention to what you are putting in your body in the first place. There are many studies from prominent health journals that have found a variety of...


Male enhancement has always been geared toward men who are dealing with erectile dysfunction. But at Memphis Men’s Clinic we believe that enhancement shouldn’t just be for men who struggle with performance issues or loss of libido. We think that men everywhere should be able to give themselves a little boost, even if they aren’t dealing with symptoms of ED.

Enter platelet-rich plasma therapy.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy, or Priapus®, is an all-natural treatment that has a number of benefits for all men. Here are three reasons to consider platelet-rich plasma therapy.


The little blue pill recently turned 20 years old. Since it’s initial launch in March of 1998, Viagra has generated over $17 billion worth of revenue and become a social and cultural phenomenon.

But things have changed since 1998. People don’t use dial-up to access the internet, bucket hats aren’t cool, and pills are no longer the best option on the market if you suffer from ED.

If you’re considering treatment for erectile dysfunction, here’s three approaches that have kept up with the times and may be more effective than popping a...


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...

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...


As 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.



Typically 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...


Visiting the doctor can be an unpleasant experience. Some offices are noisy and have long wait times. Others have loud front desk receptionists that blurt out questions about test results or uncomfortable medical information with little care for the small crowd that may be listening in a waiting room. When you make an appointment at the Memphis Men’s Clinic you will have an entirely different experience – one where your privacy is respected and the staff is focused on providing the highest level of care.

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...


You’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...


As 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...


When 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...


Today’s world is full of stressful situations, both at work and at home. Excessive levels of stress can lead to a lot of problems with your health, including things like heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, obesity, and even excess alcohol consumption. It can also lead to erectile dysfunction, either directly or through the health conditions we mentioned before.

On Its Own – High stress prompts your adrenal glands to start pumping out a hormone called cortisol. Because your body thinks it is in danger, testosterone, which is a sex hormone, becomes much less of a priority. This dip in testosterone levels, especially if it is prolonged, can lead to erectile dysfunction.

If you suffer from performance anxiety in the bedroom, this can...


As you age, you may begin to find that your performance in the bedroom is less than stellar. You may be experiencing problems with erectile dysfunction, or maybe your penis just doesn’t look as youthful as it once did. If you find yourself losing interest in sex because your confidence is suffering, you should look into platelet-rich plasma therapy.

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) is an FDA approved treatment that is administered by your doctor. We use platelet-rich plasma to enhance sexual sensation, increase penis girth and length, straighten the penis, and restore a more youthful appearance to your penis. Because there is no surgery involved, and because it is an all-natural treatment, there are no scary side-effects involved. The...


Premature ejaculation is a touchy subject for most men. You’ve probably been given advice to “just think about baseball” more than once – and frankly, it doesn’t help. The only way to really cure premature ejaculation is to get to the root of the problem. So what causes PE?

Psychological Issues

While no one is sure exactly why premature ejaculation occurs, there are some psychological factors that may play a role in your PE:

  • Sexual Abuse
  • Early Sexual Experiences
  • Depression/Anxiety
  • Feelings of Guilt
  • Poor Body Image

In addition to these problems, issues within your relationship could also be affecting your ability to delay orgasm during sex.

Medical Issues

If you are not...


If you’ve got Low T, you’ve probably experienced a drop in sexual desire and performance, a lack of energy, and possibly some other health issues resulting from imbalanced hormones. Luckily, the doctors at Memphis Men’s Clinic can treat your Low T with testosterone replacement therapy near Jackson, TN. The benefits of the treatment are incredible:

Most of the patients at our men’s clinic experience an increase in energy, happiness, improved mental clarity, and an enhanced enthusiasm for life.

You are what you eat, so it’s no surprise that your diet has a major effect on how you feel. Being overweight, or eating an unhealthy diet can lead to unbalanced hormones – particularly a drop in testosterone levels. For a man, losing testosterone has a whole host of negative impacts on everyday life. You’ll feel sluggish and tired, gain weight, and even see a decrease in sexual performance. Making changes in your diet is a great first step towards increasing your testosterone levels and feeling great.

Cut the Sugar

Excess sugar in the diet isn’t good for anyone, but for men it can lead to a decrease in testosterone levels as well. Eating too much sugar forces your body to produce more insulin than you normally would. This insulin production means that...


Low Testosterone, commonly referred to as Low T, is characterized by a set of symptoms that are easily confused for a variety of other health issues.

  • Loss of Sex Drive
