Is it absolutely essential to see a doctor if my erection lasts for hours?

Yes: If you have erection that lasts for more than 4 hours, you need to see a urologist or go the local emergency room. This is called priapism and can lead to future erectile dysfunction and penile curvature. This should be handled very quickly to prevent future complications with erections and penile scarring. ...Read more

When I call to make an appointment to see a urologist about my erection problem, how do I explain my reason for making an appointment minus the shame?

Don't be ashamed.: Urologists and their staffs are professionals who deal will all manner of male sexual health problems. There really is nothing to be embarrassed about. All appointments and matters discussed are completely private, and are sacrosanct in the doctor-patient relationship. Although saying 'ed' or 'fertility' in the appointment-making process can conceal your reasons, usually direct & honest is best. ...Read more

I travel often for work. I find that intense anticipation for sex with my wife when i'll see her again often affects my erection negatively. Normal?

Yes: The male sexual response reflects a dynamic balance between exciting and inhibiting forces of the autonomic nervous system. The sympathetic component tends to inhibit erections, whereas the parasympathetic system is one of several excitatory pathways. Anything that causes anxiety or excitement may negatively affect the quality of one's erection due to overstimulation of the sympathetic system. ...Read more

Am type 2 diabatics n suffer ED for a year with no sex activity but to my surprise I attain a complete erection when I see sex pictures could you advs?

ED?: True ed means inability to obtain or maintain an erection or losing an erection while having intercourse. The brain is a powerful aphrodisiac: if pictures or photos work, also try visual stimulation such as videos or lingerie. See what happens if you take a break from ed medication. Additionally, the better your diabetic control, the more improvement in your ed will be seen. ...Read more

Mucuse theard in my pee. Every time I pee it's there. I can only see it when I look at it with a flashlight. What's it from I don't have an erection?

Ejaculate: Your ejaculate is made of several components one of which is mucoid or mucus like. If you have no pain, no injury and no discharge that looks like pus and you can urinate fine- don't be too concerned. If it persists or further symptoms occur you should see your doctor. ...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 I stop avodart (dutasteride) for three months to see if erections/libido will return?

If physician agrees: Stopping Avodart (dutasteride) will not lead to any serious problems although the therapeutic benefit on your prostate will be lost. The trial off the medicine to see if it helps with sexual dysfunction is not unreasonable. I suspect, however, that you need to have a testosterone level checked before assuming Avodart (dutasteride) is the sole cause of your problem ...Read more

My urologist said my thrombosed penis vein is ok since it causes no pain or erection problems. He didn't see it....I described it to him. Is he right?

My urologist said my thrombosed penis vein is ok since it causes no pain or erection problems. He didn't see it....I described it to him. Is he right?

Yes: A thrombosed penile vein or lymphatic vessel is almost always self-limiting, benign, and not usually recurrent. Most often related to excessive or prolonged friction related to masturbation or sexual activity. Usually, the thrombosed vessel softens and diminishes with time, but may persist on occasion. No treatment needed unless residual prominent vein is psychologically bothersome. ...Read more
