Avatar n tn Actually, on a serious note, there have been a number of articles and studies linking HCV with erectile dysfunction. In addition, the tx also has a very negative impact on erectile function. But, the disease itself often impacts erectile function. Here are just a few links: http://www.advisemen.com/182/hepatitis-c-and-erectile-dysfunction/ http://www.natap.org/2002/august/081402_1.htm (a pretty solid study) http://www.hivandhepatitis.com/hep_c/images/083002b.

Avatar m tn Urologists have special expertise in sexual health. Some specialize specifically in erectile dysfunction. They can help assess your condition and determine its cause. •Seek mental/emotional health treatment. Stress, anxiety and depression can cause erectile dysfunction. Even the fear of having erectile problems can make them worse. Talk to your doctor to see if these issues are playing a role in your ED. Treatment with a mental health professional might help.

Avatar f tn Sorry I made errors in a sentence. I rewrite it : Is curvature an absolute contraindication, or can it be sometimes prescribed to men who have a curved penis ?
Avatar m tn His cirrhosis and erectile dysfunction are probably unrelated. The problem with erectile dysfunction is that once he starts to loose it the next time he wonders if he will loose it. This is a normal human reaction. However, it does, or certainly can, block messages from brain to penis resulting in the collapse of erection.
Avatar m tn B12 deficiency can result in erectile dysfunction (ED) because the nerves in the penis can become damaged making it impossible to achieve or maintain an erection. We routinely see general practitioners, internists and urologists prescribing medications for patients with ED. We also see them blaming other disease processes, such as diabetes, for ED impotence, or incontinence. Typically they fail to contemplate that B12 deficiency may be causing or or contributing to these problems.
Avatar f tn t have a serious medical condition, then you have 2 choices for ED 1) Anxiety 2) Overuse of Internet porn 3) Combo of both The inability to get a full erection with a real-life sexual partner is called copulatory impotence. Chronic erectile dysfunction is a rare problem for men under 40 - or at least it wasn't until Internet porn arrived. So - have you been consistently using Internet porn? If so, the it might be the cause.
20916627 tn?1643163409 Thank you for posting. Sometimes calling it erectile dysfunction or ED can be scary or make it seem like a whole new separate disease, but erectile dysfunction basically means one's erection isn't firm enough for vaginal penetration, or that your erections have been worsened in some ways from how they were previously. Perhaps others want to word that differently, but essentially that is what ED is.
Avatar n tn Hi, Thanks for writing in. There are both physical and emotional causes implicated in erectile dysfunction. But it is important to confirm whether it is erectile dysfunction or not and that can be done by a specialist with examination, history and investigations. Common casuative factors include anxiety, stress, depression, excess fatigue or dissatisfaction with the relationship with the partner.
Avatar n tn I did that search and found this from the May Clinic - ______________________________________________________________ Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability of a man to maintain a firm erection long enough to have sex. Although erectile dysfunction is more common in older men, this common problem can occur at any age. Having trouble maintaining an erection from time to time isn't necessarily a cause for concern.
Avatar m tn you need google erectile dysfunction to get a full description (over 20 different ways to cause erectile dysfunction) If you suspect to have it, you need to visit a doctor so they can determine if it is physical or psychological problem. It's usually psychological or it could be the combination of physical or psychological. Usually men over 40 that experience erectile dysfunction relates to a physical problem or some underlying medical condition, ie. diabetis, high blood pressure, etc.

Avatar n tn t have an erection at all. My questions is can colonoscopy cause total erectile dysfunction. I had sex with my girlfriend last Saturday, two days before the colonoscopy. Everything was fine. I am so scared that I am permanently damaged by the procedure. BTW I just turned 43. There are not much online about this two issues. The impression I got was that erectile dysfunction is not cause by colonoscopy. I asked the doctor who did the procedure and he told me it's not the colonoscopy.

Avatar m tn s a good thing. But you could be slowly dying from liver disease while this is going on, if you get my drift. An interesting side note is that there are philosophies that have existed throughout civilizations that abstaining from sex is the key to health. Chew on that one for awhile.
Avatar m tn Hello, Medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart or thyroid conditions, poor circulation, low testosterone, depression and spinal cord injury can cause erectile dysfunction. In your case, heart conditions and high blood pressure can be responsible for erectile dysfunction. You may need to consult your doctor to see which amongst these causes are responsible for your problem.
Avatar m tn Studies have shown that over 80% of erectile dysfunction (ED) is due to physical causes. Two risk factors for ED include poor diet and smoking. Smoking depletes many nutrients and particularly mentioned are vitamin C and vitamin E. Smokers with the lowest vitamin C levels have the fastest disappearance of vitamin E (known as the "sex" vitamin). I cannot find anaemia specifically mentioned as a cause of ED however.
11199370 tn?1416147767 Im a 65 year old male with diabetes and have erectile dysfunction I have a female doctor who is also a lesbian . She is a great doctor but I am embarrassed to ask for help I also have a heart doctor that I have to see next week. Should I speak to him about my situation? Will Viagra work for someone that has artery disease?? What can I expect. ? I was married for 33 years and divorced for 12 years I don't want to die alone I have a lady friend but also this problem. Help please.
Avatar n tn Erectile dysfunction at your age would be extremely rare and like your doctor said, it tends to be psychological. Your mind has a lot of power over what happens to your body physically. If you feel nervous at all, upset, stressed out, etc all of this can affect erections and cause you to lose it. There really isn't a quick fix, but it'd be good to try to think about what else may be going on in your life.
