I cannot get an erection even with pills...How can I fix this so I can reproduce with my wife?

ED: Do you ever get erections? In your sleep or with masturbation? If you do, the problem may be psychological. If you don't, there's clearly a medical problem that needs to be evaluated. A testosterone level is a good start, but if that's normal, you need further evaluation. ...Read more

Cannot get a erection when I pull my foreskin behind the glans and it hurts when I start to have a boner?

Cannot get a erection when I pull my foreskin behind the glans and it hurts when I start to have a boner?

Depends on details: If a guy can get an erection with the foreskin covering the glans, he can get an erection with the foreskin pulled back behind the glans. If he is new to having erections with the skin pulled back, then parts of the foreskin and the frenulum (the piece at the bottom of the glans) may still be tight and may hurt during an erection (but shouldn't hurt anymore after 10-20 erections of good duration). ...Read more

Could it be impotence if you cannot get a erection with a woman but you can easily on your own just from thinking?

No, but...: I have addressed this question not long ago, which was probably not what you like to hear, but quite sure what you need to hear. For the time being, collect and record the feature and degree of all related symptoms with their detailed sequence of events, and bring those to see your doctor for further detailing and counseling...

Oh! Note: avoid overindulgence and obsession. ...Read more

Can e.D. Be physical and mental? I desire my wife. I think about making love to her all day long. I cannot get an erection and it bothers me. I have been to see a 2 qualified urologist for a full examination. He says that everything checked out fine and h

Have: Have you checked in w/your family physician? From what you've mentioned (which isn't much), the good news is that you're in a good relationship, which is half the battle. While it's not impossible, I doubt that your erectile dysfunction is mental/emotional as long as you two are happy w/each other and aren't fighting, etc. One caveat is that you can't be stressed about finances, family & friends, either.

Once that's cleared away, we need to consider your over all health. Are you physically fit? Or overweight/obese? Do you smoke? Diabetes? High blood pressure? High cholesterol? Heart disease? Medications can cause ed. So can chemicals hidden in over-the-counter dietary supplements. And of course, testosterone. You need enough.

That's why it's important to go back to your family physician and bring all your medical records from your 2 urologists.

One last point of clarification for your family physician. Can you get erect at other times when your wife isn't present? Have you ever been able to have an erection? What's changed in your life (and hers) prior to this becoming an issue? Answer these questions for your family physician to be able to better help you out. Good luck! ...Read more

Can you tell me if any other adult males with autism, ocd, or anything similar find they cannot get an erection quickly with?

Erections: In my experience the difficulty with obtaining an erection is often due to the medications they are taking such as ssris for ocd. There is, to the best of my knowledge, any particular reason for those disorders themselves to cause erection difficulties. There may be some other issue and seeing your family physician would be a good start. ...Read more

I am 23 and cannot maintain an erection. I did not have intercourse in 2 years but with my girlfriend I cannot get erection. What can be wrong? Treat?

I am 23 and cannot maintain an erection. I did not have intercourse in 2 years but with my girlfriend I cannot get erection. What can be wrong? Treat?

It depends: In some cases this can be anxiety-based, whereas in others it might be physiological. A good way to tell the difference is if you are able to get an erection while watching pornography or masturbating. If so, there's a good chance it's anxiety-based. Treatment in this case would be with psychotherapy, whereas physiological would call for medicine. They're not mutually exclusive, of course. ...Read more

I just moved and I'm finding that I cannot get or maintain an erection. I didn't have this problem at the old home. On zyprexa but didn't have prob b4?

May well be zyprexa: Decreased erectile function is a common side effect of this whole class of drugs, and the side effect may occur at any time during its use, although it is usually present earlier in the course of treatment. Other things, like anxiety/stress over moving or other aspects of your changed circumstances may also be contributing. Talk to your doctor and/or pharmacist about this problem. ...Read more

Secondly she may have vaginismus, which means that at the time of penetration the vaginal muscles strongly CONTRACT and make penetration impossible. Please persuade your girl friend to see a gynaecologist. ...Read more

I am a 75 year old male that can still get an erection, but I cannot ejaculate and receive little sensation when aroused. Can I do anything?

Delayed ejaculation: You didn't list any medications or medical problems which would be useful in figuring out what's going on. Best to go see your Family Doc for a medication review & evaluation. For instance, some antidepressants in the SSRI class are used off-label to treat premature ejaculation (the opposite of your situation) but which could cause yours. Or you may have retrograde ejaculate during orgasm. ...Read more
