Conditions with symptom: 'impotence'
im a twin and i was circumcised as a child. i am now 18 and have been in a relationship for two years, me and my girlfriend have tried to have sex, but it just doesn't 'go in'and i have never got a full erection. is it impotence?
You are identifying the possibility of two separate issues, one with her, the other with you. With her, it's possible that her hymen hasn't been broken yet, and because of your semi-erect state, perhaps you haven't been strong enough to break through. A doctor could break her hymen for her, which might make it easier for the two of you. As for you, the first question I would ask is, "Do you get a full erection at other times, such as during masturbation or during your sleep?" If so, then you might wish to consider having penile plethysmography, which is a fancy way of saying "a measurement of the strength of your erection." During the test you will be shown various erotica, some male, some female. This will give you a sense of your sexual orientation, or perhaps the kind of person (either female or male) you are attracted to. In other words, perhaps you are 100% heterosexual, but perhaps she just isn't your type.
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.
I have peyronie's disease, I'm due to see a consultant shortly. Could you tell me if opting for the Lue procedure is high risk regarding impotence. Which procedure would you recomend?.
Im 33 years of age and having the some type of impotence problems the age of 16 or 17. while sleeping my penis ejaculate the sperms and that happens quite frequently, once or twice a week and some times 3 times a weeks. And my penis get quickly erected but does not last for even one minute and erection is not hard enough to penetrate. i tried to have sex with my girlfriend few time but did not worked. she dumped me (I guess for the same reason). Tried with second girlfriend but no luck. I have noticed one thing if ejaculation dones not happens for 4 to 5 days my legs starts feeling painfull and uncomfortable.
Can I get phototoselective vapourisation of the prostate on the NHS. I've seen sites (e.g. the Birmingham Bladder clinic) which are clearly private. I've had an enlarged prostate for a number of years and the problems are getting worse. On average I'm getting up 5 times a night and urine flow is best described as pathetic.I also have to consider carefully the amount of liquid I take before travelling as emergency stops are not always convenient. As for sitting through a film showing....forget it! Traditional surgery carries the risk of impotence and I'd like to know how PVP compares statistically. I'd also like to find out how one can compare outcomes as between different centres where operations of this sort are carried out. I'd be prepared to go on your excellent show. Thanks for normalising Keep up the embarrassing.
I've had varicocele for 8 years.Then Unfortunately I met a so- called physician who deteriorated my illness(he prescribed 22 hormone(testestrone) weekly as he thought it may be for my impotence at the age of 22(It caused too many wet dreams/2 or 3 times weekly).Sometimes I tried to stop seminal effusion but it caused some infection in my sperm and I had some drugs to fix it(cotrimaxazole) Later(when I was 33) an urologist dignosed Varicocele and operated me.(semen exam was good at that age too).But for many reasons I could not marry till 46 .In recent months I am weaker in erectile and sometimes I lose small spermlike fluid when I sit on a chair for a long time. Is this prostate? or sexual weakness?(My prostate was ok at 33)Please if you can give me better direction or any direct email let me know. Yours AS

I took ofloxacin for epididymitis and it gave me balanitis. After 7 months I finally got rid of it with Eumovate. However I then needed Ciprofloxacin for an epididymitis flare-up and for 18 months have had balanitis. At first it was flaky and blistered but after creams hadnt worked I got rid of these symptoms using Manuka Honey. However other symptoms remain- painful erections, extreme stinging after ejaculation, slight redness and tighter than it was foreskin, very wrinkled, plasticy skin and 70% sensation loss. Even worse, after using strong steroids for so long the skin became thin and I could see all the blood vessels and sensation went completely. If I do not masturbate for 4 or 5 days sensation returns to 30% max but I don't orgasm and the sensation goes again completely after masturbating once or twice (possibly because the skin is thin and nerves damage easily?). Obviously with no sensation it will lead to impotence and I find it hard to get erect at times. I am depressed and scared and lose the will to live at times, I do not know what else I can do and circumcision would remove
