Difficulty with erections is not that common and doesn't happen to "real" men right?

Happens occasionally: A good erection is greatly influenced by emotions. In a younger man, without age-related erection problems or hormonal imbalances, a poor erection can be due to stress (stress at home, at work, in the relationship, etc.), due to other distractions (a toothache, a tummy ache, etc.), due to worries (worries about getting a woman pregnant, catching an std, his "other girlfriend finding out", etc.).

Wrong!: Ed can be an early signal that a man's heart or brain is at risk for heart disease or stroke. Ed can happen 10 years before a man develops life-threatening heart disease. All men with ED need to see a health care provider.
A 22-year-old member asked:

How does the vascular system play a role in erectile dysfunction?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Michael Klein
Family Medicine 21 years experience
Blood flow: Erections work when a vigorous arterial supply fills the spongy tissue of the penis. This causes the penis to become erect and also crushes the outflow veins to prevent the erection from immediately going down. If there is not a strong enough inward arterial flow, the penis may not become fully erect, or will not suppress the vein enough to reduce outflow and keep the erection.

Does premature ejaculation cause low sperm count?

Dr. Marvalyn DeCambre
Urology 24 years experience
No: It does not. Premature ejaculation is just that premature. It does not have any impact on the quantity of sperm. It may however have impact on fertility, which requires the sperm connecting to the egg-in this case timing is everything.
