Avatar n tn These exercises as well as other tremendous advice is discussed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> detail <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> a book by Barbara keesling called All night long, How to make love to a man <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>50</span> which she wrote mainly for the wives with special sections (involving the PC exercises) for the men with ED. Another book I found very helpful is Sex over 40 by Saul Rosenthal, M.D. There is a chapter that is especially helpful where you do a certain exercise with your wife to induce an erection without having intercourse.
Avatar n tn Here is a post that I sumbitted earlier today to Frammyboy's original question regarding <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>erectile</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dysfunction</span> which was dated 6-1-2007. Since the post does not appear on the first page of this men's forum, I thought it would be helpful to paste a copy of that reply here so others might benefit. Good luck to all. From what you mentioned in your post, it appears that your problem might be more psychological than physical.
13813175 tn?1431580967 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>erectile</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dysfunction</span> is a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>men</span> sexual health disease <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> which <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>men</span> get unable to maintain erection during sex stimulation with their partner. There are 30 million on men in US who are facing this problem over the years.

936016 tn?1332769204 Older men have a much higher rate of ED with around <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>50</span>% plus of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>men</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>50</span> to 70 age group <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> at least one US study reporting it. Remember that ED is a range of conditions – it’s not simply a “dead or alive” condition. Partial erections; erections which start off strong and then fail; erections which are fragile in the sense that it doesn’t take much to make them collapse, are common. As I say, younger men generally have less physical reason to develop erectile failure.
Avatar m tn I am a 31 year old guy who has been suffering from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>erectile</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dysfunction</span> all my life. I have only ever managed penetration 3 times (for a few minutes) in my life. The first time was when I lost my virginity at 16 and the second and third times were about 10 years ago. When I masturbate I can get an erection, however it is never a really hard erection (certainly not hard enough to penetrate without losing it) and I need to constantly stimulate myself to keep a semi erection.
Avatar m tn ) Total testosterone should be measured with sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). increased SHBG levels may be associated with hypogonadism <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>men</span> and decreased levels can result in androgenization in women. My SHBG was deficient due to insulin resistance.
Avatar n tn Anyway, it has always crossed my mind that porn and even television <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> general has had a great impact on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>erectile</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dysfunction</span>. I'm 28 now and even still suffer from the problem. And yes, it's because I'm still addicted to porn. It's hard to stop, especially with the new free porn sites available. But don't get me wrong, I've had sexual encounters with plenty of women; and some of them, I've failed to plow my **** in their vagina unless I use viagra.
Avatar n tn If enough folks report the same severe symptoms after taking the same med, it will raise the flag with someone, somewhere. peginterferon and riba have been around for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> 6yrs, given that most of us are treating <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> our <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>50</span>'s, how much into the future are you willing to go, to assign the condition to tx? If you develop numbness in your arms 15 yrs from now, are you going to blame the tx?
Avatar m tn D., widely available both used and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> paperback. The information <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> this book has helped millions of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>men</span> overcome discomfort and anxiety about sex. Good luck to you. Dr.
Avatar m tn What should my PSA level be (ratio) 5 to 6 weeks after radical prostate removal? When will I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>erectile</span> function again (man <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> early <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>50</span>'s) time frame is fine What <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> the counter (if any) means (foods, vitamins, herbs etc) can I use to help with Ed issues As stated I cannot get an erection after while trying with wife I did feel pleasure and actually ejaculated something (was not semen). What was it urine? What are signs that my erectile function might be returning besides an erection?
Avatar n tn in my previous post, I referenced some other discussion boards where other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>men</span> with the same symptom mostly report that it does indeed go away <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 4 - 6 weeks. As a side note, my urologist found "trace" amounts of blood and protein in my urine, which he felt were not related, and not substantial enough to cause alarm. As a precaution, however, he put me on a two week course of Doxycycline.
Avatar n tn I had a similar situation; <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>erectile</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dysfunction</span> set <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 1997. Viagra helped when it came on the market. Retrogressive ejaculation followed in 2001; it may be as a result of damage done during removal of kidney-stone although doctors seem to disagree on this. Found blood when masturbating (but none in urine) earlier this year. Saw doctor and had pta test done. It was normal. I went though hell while waiting on result. I was almost sure I has cancer. The condition cleared up.
5856747 tn?1403352282 Almost every day now, or so it seems to me, I am hearing from young people who are taking antidepressant drugs and who are suffering from a sexual <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dysfunction</span> as a direct consequence. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>men</span> their <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dysfunction</span> may be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>erectile</span> dysfunction, loss of libido or sex drive, loss of sensation during ejaculation or loss of ability to climax at all.
Avatar n tn There are others, not the least of which is my faith <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> God, and I have often said many times <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my life that when my life is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> it will be His decision. My wife and children support me in my decision, so barring any last minute event to the contrary I likely will opt for a watch and wait. Life is very short and gets shorter by the minute and is also full of risks, cancer being only one. I would like to think my decision is right for me, at this time.
Avatar n tn i am now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>50</span> years old but approx 5 year ago i saw a decrease <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> ekjaculation <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> a period of time now i have no ejecalation what so ever? also at the same time i slowly lost my erections now i still have no erections? i have been refered to the hospital and they have checked my penis for blockages in the penis canal, that was found to be ok no blockages, i have also a couple of years ago developed a curvature to my penis, i think this is i peronis disease ?

Avatar n tn 'Pearly penile papules are multiple, small (about 1-3mm) papules running around the circumference of the crown of the glans penis. They typically develop <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>men</span> aged 20 to 40, and around 10 per cent of all men are affected. They may be mistaken for warts, are not infectious and require no treatment.' 'Fordyce spots are small (1-5mm) bright red or purple papules that can appear on the glans, shaft or scrotum and usually affect younger men.
Avatar f tn Hence, there may be some irritation, causing diarrhea for some, for others pain while passing stool. Unlike surgery, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> which <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>erectile</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dysfunction</span> is noted early in the post-operative period, for patients on radiation, the erectile function tends to worsen over time, sometimes it happens long after the actual radiation. How old is your husband? Older men may have weaker bones and the radiation may also increase the risk for fractures. Stay positive.
Avatar n tn That said, porn-induced ED is happening <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> young <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>men</span>, so It's quite possible he has deloped it. It is Porn, not the masturbation, that caused the ED. It's an addiction process in the brain that reduces sensitivity and blood flow to the penis.

1964358 tn?1326567759 I cleaned myself up and actually looked at it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the door mirror. I noticed that depending how I moved my pelvis, it would go slightly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> and out, so I pushed it in and closed my legs. I have a large seroma from a tummy tuck I had done 7 years ago so when I went to talk to the doctor about it I told him I've been having urinary urgency, he said it was probably because my bladder dropped which happens as a woman gets older.
Avatar m tn Make sure you get tested for both free and bound testosterone. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>50</span>% of testosterone is bound <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the plasma (the fluid portion of blood, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> which cells are suspended) by both sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) and albumin. in fact, only 2% exists as free testosterone. It is this free type that does all the work reducing obesity, preventing depression and slashing the risk of heart disease, among other things.
Avatar f tn Long term pain management with opiates cause sexual dysfunction of 50% of all patients, both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>men</span> and women. It causes testosterone deficiencies <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>men</span> and women, which is called hypogonadism. Docs are supposed to monitor testosterone levels, but seldom do because the topic just doesn't come up in the Doctors office. It's not just men that need to worry either, in fact it's of critical importance to women. Check it out, there's a lot more to read: pain-topics.
Avatar m tn Your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>erectile</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dysfunction</span> has got nothing to do with your history of masturbation. Unfortunately you leave out one vital piece of information and that is do you ever get morning or spontaneous erections? If the answer to this question is yes then your problem is performance anxiety and here is how you can fix it: There is now a tried and trusted set of behavioural techniques that can overcome this in a matter of a week or so. These are so easy to apply.
Avatar dr m tn Women experience more dramatic changes in hormone levels (particularly progesterone) that affect upper airway patency, but levels of testosterone and even small amounts of progesterone can also influence upper airway muscle tone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>men</span> as well; Not to mention the typical weight gain that occurs in the middle years, leading to even more narrowing of the upper airway.
Avatar n tn I am 35,I noticed I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>erectile</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dysfunction</span> time <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> 10 years ago. It is still almost impossible to have a hard one that can last. Firstly, I was told by doctors then it was probably pschological. It continued and I was given priscription (prescription) drugs(sildenafil up to 100mg) which worked temporarily and in a lot of instances unsatisfactorily. I have had a partner for 8 years that has been on & off. We got seperated for almost 5 years in which she got pregnant & had a kid.
Avatar m tn One thing to consider when choosing a surgeon is, does he have any colleagues who specialize in sexual <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dysfunction</span>? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> other words, can he refer you to a urologist who has a lot of experience <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> treating <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>erectile</span> dysfunction? Depending on where you live, if you are near a major medical center, you may be able to find someone with a lot of experience in this area. I would suggest trying to find someone who has a track record of scientific publications about erectile dysfunction.
Avatar n tn Beta-sitosterol has also been shown to stimulate desire <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>men</span> and improve <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>erectile</span> function. This compound is extracted from plants and has been extremely useful in cases of prostate enlargement. Saw Palmetto and pygeum also improve urinary flow in cases of prostate enlargement and have been shown to improve sexual function in both men and women.
