Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I read about your problem and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) Since you are just 32 year young adult I don't think you will have any serious organic / physical problem.

2) Some event which causes pressure in life or tension in either professional or personal life might have led to this problem.

3) Hence I would like you to follow regular exercise, and meditation, yoga so that you can get relaxed.

4) If things don't improve after performing relaxation techniques, you can decide on the next course of action. Hence I would advice you to relax and take things easily.

Hi,

Glad to see your reply. You are a healthy young man. I am pretty sure you have no physical problem. My only advice would be to be stress free & relaxed. I am sure you will have good sex life. Your thoughts need to be positive. When you are with your sex partner, I am sure your sexual drive & pleasure will be fine. Just take a break.

Hi,
I am glad you visited a doctor. I was telling you about the same aspect of stress and need for relaxation. The doctor has blamed anxiety and life style which are same issues. You need to modify your lifestyle and be stress free. These tablets he has prescribed are to be used 30 minutes before having intercourse. Let me caution you that THESE TABLETS ARE NOT PERMANENT CURE FOR ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION. They are helpful only if taken before intercourse. Hence I suggest my above advice instead of medicines. Try relaxing and then have intercourse. I do not think you have erectile dysfunction. Its anxiety, stress and a faulty lifestyle.

Hi,

Based on your description, I do not feel you have erectile dysfunction (ED). Erection is grossly affected by anxiety and stress and therefore you may just have anxiety and stress that affects the erection.

If I were to be your treating doctor, I would recommend the following:
1) Stop smoking and alcohol
2) Every day go for jog or exercise 30 min.
3) Have fat free diet.
4) Stay away from too much caffeine.

First keep in mind that you are normal. I don't think you have ED.

Regards,
