Unable to get erect: For lack of a better description, erectile dysfunction is the inability to obtain & maintain an erection (hard on) adequate for sexual activity leading to distress. Note that w/o distress, there is no dysfunction. Ed has many causes that should be considered & treated rather than masking w/medications, although these new drugs have revolutionized treatment.

Doctors work...: It is best to describe your symptoms that are concerning rather than look at a laundry list of potential symptoms. I love the internet and the availability of knowledge that my patients have access to. What gets us all in trouble is getting to a diagnosis before all of the symptoms are considered.

Talk to your doctor!: Erectile dysfunction can be a manifestation of depression that resolves w/treatment. However, ssri class of antidepressants is also associated w/delayed orgasm, even to point of anorgasmia. While this is different from ed, it is still problematic. Some studies suggest that ed associated w/depression can be treated w/viagra & its competitors. Talk to your doc about your options, incl changing meds.
