Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query.

Erectile dysfunction and phimosis are not related entities, though it is related to the same organ.
Advantages of circumcision are prevention of infection and cancer in the long run.
The medicine that is used to get better erection, may be tested for more time to see if the frequency of urine changes.
Sometimes, it may be related to the sexual act itself, as some people have frequency the night after having sex, due to sphincter contraction and relaxation.
Wishing you good health

As you said both are related to same organ, does that mean phimosis could contributor of the ED problems (or phimosis and ED are related)
If phimosis , is circumcision is mandatory ?

Welcome back.

Advantages of circumcision - To maintain hygiene and thereby prevention of infection and cancer.
Disadvantages - discomfort in the initial few days, few days rest, inability to have sex for 3 to 4 weeks.
There is no relation between Phimosis and erectile dysfunction.
Also, circumcision does not cure or cause erectile problem.
Also, whether the procedure is necessary can be decided only by the examining doctor.

My doctor recommended some viagra based tablets for ED problems. but my research from the surfing the net found that , if started with viagra, then i need to be continue use the same tablets with increased quantity gradually to get erection and we cannot get natural erection. Is it true?
Is there any alternatives for viagra/viagra based medicine.
I have used vita ex-gold plus, and uphold but no use for me.

Welcome back.

Natural erection is not affected if you use Viagra.
The rigidity may be less when compared with the erection caused with Viagra. So, the difference is felt.
There is nothing else you can do in this situation. Can you?
Do you want to wait till you get alright naturally? There is no guarantee that you will get alright just by waiting for more time. so, it is up to you to decide.
There are only 2 doses of Viagra with the maximum safe dose being 100 mg and there is no question of increasing it to a limitless dose.
Also speak to your doctor about intake nitric oxide supplement that can be used to give better erection. This can be used either independently or along with Viagra group of medicines.
Wishing you good health.
