When I am with my partner my penis doesn't get ericted at all, I wonder if you can help me please?
I have the same problem! I suggest you go see your GP, they will help don't be afraid.
I have never achived orgasm through sex, only by masturbation. My partner has been able to make me cum this way but only a few times in the 16 years we have been together. Is there anything i can do? I have suffered from erectile dysfunction but i now get cialis on prescription.
I am 17 and for the past few months my erections have been weak and on the off chance I get one they go down much quicker. I don't smoke and I am not diagnosed as depressed but I personally think I might be and apparently depression can be a reason for erectile dysfunction. Help please?
My Husband had a Radical Prostectamy 2 years past Sept, he still has problems with erectile dysfunction even though he has tried viagra, cialis, injections and a vaccum pump! Does anyone know if there are any more options that can help him?
Same problem, but there is a fluid that is administered via the urethra. Ask your GP
I am a circumcised man. Type 2 diabetes has caused erectile dysfunction (impotence). Is this condition worse in circumcised men ?
Unfortunately its much worse. Circumcision removes an enormous amount of nerve tissue and blood vessels that are important in sexual function. Because of this, circumcised men are almost 5 times more likely to suffer ED. Add to that your diabetes and you arent very lucky :( Some men use stretching to restore their foreskins, and have some success in treating their ED because it resensitises the glans. But more important is control of your blood pressure, your circulation and your blood sugars. I wish you all the best.
hello i am 72 and have a problem getting an erection i get a semi erection and then it goes soft i have read the article on erectile dysfunction and would like to know what and if anything can be done to put it right my doctor said i may have to take a course of viagra
Hi, I am 67 and have the same problems. I asked my Doctor about it but he didn't think I could do anything; I am very frustrated about this and my wife isn't happy either. If anything could be done I would be willing to pay if I need to
Im not sure if im suffering from erectile dysfunction, because im 23 and can get hard no problem but it doesnt 'stand to attention' it just stays in the normal position but becomes hard, it can affect sex with my partner when she is on top, which is embarrassing for both of us.
Tom go and speak to a GP.. It may be nothing or it could be like those guys that have a bend in their penis when fully errect. There is actually a medical reason and cause for this, and gets rectified .. You may or may not have anything wrong but I would sincerley say to you, go and get it checked out.. Sex is enjoyable and you dont want to be missing out.. Dont be embarrassed, your a man going to have talk to a another man.. a man that is there to help not judge.. Go for the assistance of two people not just one, you and your girl..
For 12 months I've had dull aching in my abdomen and testicles. Now there are small lumps at the bottom on both testicles that are quite painful when tapped or gently squeezed. And now I'm experiencing a bit of erectile dysfunction too. I'm only 23 The doctor said it was a pulled muscle twice. What is causing this?
