Not 2nd interferon: Your symptom of erectile dysfunction is very, very probably related to your MS. It is NOT due to the interferon. Further clinical neurological & possibly urological evaluation would clarify this concern.

Multi factorial: Ralph, there are a bunch of things going on here. It is difficult to know how everything interacts. You may feel embarrassed talking to someone about this face to face, but this is the place to start. Your neurologist is the first person I'd talk to. If he/she cannot help, have him/her refer you to a urologist. This problem has a solution.
