ED: You have erectile dysfunction which is common for someone your age. Get some viagra (sildenafil) and you will be able to perform well again.

Few options..: Safest and easiest/simplest to help is getting an evaluation by your doc to see if you have underlying problem--such as vascular insufficiency/diabetes/thyroid/blood pressure/testosterone trouble etc.. Once these are controlled/treated, medications such as cialis/levitra/viagra can help to improve and maintain erections. It is nothing like when u were 17, but these meds do help. Goodl luck .

It swells, not grows: A flacid penis can double or triple in size when it become erect, but that is not the same as growing. The penis will shrink back to its normal size when the erection stops. Small flacid penises tend to swell more as a percentage of baseline size than larger flacid penises.

Erection wanted!!: Hi this is a common experience and one you can fix fairly simply. No need to be embarrassed. But, you do want to seek out a good health care provider with expertise in men's health. This could be stress, self-esteem, or even medical conditions such as low thyroid, low testosterone, diabetes, etc. But, we do have a number of medical options to make sure this is just a temporary problem. Just ask.

A wise man chooses..: The choices are to find a person with a long vagina, or to just not fully insert the penis. The former is difficult to do, the latter is easy. This is one of those occasions in which taking the easy route is the wiser choice. Indeed, life is about choices.

Mild erectile dysfun: Ed is very common at your age. Suggest you see your family dr, who may suggest viagras (sildenafil) or Cialis if this is really bothering you or gets any worse. Good luck.
