Erectile dysfunction: First relax. Anxiety, increasing your adrenaline with stress will not help. Talk to your doctor, and at 45yrs of age, we can run some labwork to check for your testosterone level and other hormones. We might even give you a trial of viagra (sildenafil) or Cialis to see if you respond. Most of the time that's enough to correct the situation if it hasn't corrected itself. That's the least invasive approach.

Go see your doctor: Men suffering from erectile dysfunction need to do some introspection. Stress, whether from performance anxiety, work, money, family, friends & most importantly, relationship w/partner, is most common cause, followed by tobacco use, excess alcohol, etc. Obesity & chronic medical conditions don't help either, especially diabetes, high cholesterol & blood pressure. Bottom line, go see your doc.

Yes, but other cause: Men with diabetes, particularly if poorly controlled, can have erectile dysfunction - but it can also occur due to many other physical and emotional causes. It can also be the result of certain medications. Check with your doctor.
