Suggest a consult : Awkward so well done for coming forward. Need to tease out in more detail re the character of your sex drive losing erection vs not attaining strong enough one. Lots of possibilities in terms of medical vs other factors so best to consult as some testing and or referral for support/treatment may needed. All the best

Low libido: and weak erections are not the result of masturbation. That is more likely from hormonal or psychological reasons. Please see your doctor for diagnosis. Peace and good health.

Does breastfeeding influence women's sex drive?

Dr. Kevin Windisch
Pediatrics 25 years experience
Yes: The horomones that regulate breast milk production can result in dry and atrophic vaginal tissue. This can markedly decrease the sex drive. Exhaustion from around the clock feedings also can have a dramatic impact on sex drive.

If you take viagra (sildenafil) prior to sleep would nocturnal erections induce priapism?

Dr. Moez Khorsandi
Urology 27 years experience
Possibly: Viagra (sildenafil) and any agent used treat erectile dysfunction can induce priapism. If viagra (sildenafil) is taken at night, then it is possible that a normal erection could last longer and cause priapism. Who actually develops priapism depends on their risk factors such as age, comorbidities including diabetes and hypertension, and use of other medications. The more comorbidities a man has, the less likely.

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Yes: Generalized muscle weakness is a sign of a significant illness (auto-immune or thyroid diseases are possibilities). Unintentional weight loss is another sign of a significant problem (cancer, thyroid problems, psychological issues, or auto-immune diseases are possibilities). A person with both symptoms should be at the doctor's office getting a full evaluation.

Muscle injury: Muscle injury can be detect by MRI in most cases. Weakness can be inferred by atrophy (less muscle mass than the opposite side) but cannot truly be measured by an MRI scan.
