Welcome to XXXXXXX
If you get early morning erections, then there is no problem in the organ or its blood vessels as such. It is only mind set related.
More over, erection is NOT VOLUNTARY. It is involuntary. Erection occurs when sexually stimulated and not when we want voluntarily.
Reasons could be.
1.     Recent illness.
2.     Smoking.
3.     Diabetes.
These things need to be sorted out. Please get your blood sugar checked and get it under control if found to be high. Kindly quit if you happen to be a smoker.
Weight reduction would definitely help. Regular exercise is a must to keep your blood vessels healthy.
Other things that would help are EARLY and light dinner and prolonged foreplay, once you get married.
Diet needs to be XXXXXXX in fresh fruits, dried fruits and vegetables.
Kindly contact nearest urologist for appropriate physical examination.
Hope this helps, kindly get back for doubts if any.

Welcome back.
As i wrote earlier, it is only mind-set related.
Please give more time for things to settle.
The quality of erection is different when you are with your wife in relation to masturbation, as foreplay plays a vital role in SEXUAL FUNCTION.
I am sure you will enjoy your private life and so please go ahead with your marriage plans without getting worried about the transient issue.
Best regards

I am 27 years old, Single, male, my height is 5’8 inch and weight is around 70kg. from Jaipur. Working as a Computer Operator, doesn’t smoke and drink. My problem is related to Sexual. I was masturbating regularly (3-4 times in a week, from the age of 14yrs). Now I have almost finished. Now there is no Erection (inability to achieve erection) and No hardness in my penis. And if there is some erection or hardness it is for very short duration. I am unable to maintain erection sufficient. My penis is very small it is only 4" inches when erect. Non-erect penis is arnd 2 inches. Its look like a small child’s, undeveloped penis. The foreskin of penis is flap & loose also. I have also suffered from PE. I come almost in seconds (through masturbation, I have never do sex).
I discharge in Sleep. Whitish fluid is the released through the penis while urinate, while chatting from a girl, or thinking abt sex (anytime) (spermatorrhoea) I think now I have no Sperm (bcz scrotum size is also very small). Now I have no interest in sex bcz of these problems. I thought that she (my life partner) will laugh on me and I think I couldn’t do sex, and cant satisfy my partner, from this problem I m unable to do marriage.
What can I do to increase the size of penis, for Increase hardness, increase duration of hard erection, quantity, quality & motility of semen/sperm, Sexual stamina & Energy, prevent PE, increases Desire for sex, Duration of sexual act, etc.
Is this Erectile Dysfunction? What may be causing of these problems? Is it a complex case? Is the problem is curable? How soon after I began treatment, can I expect improvement? How much improvement can I reasonably expect, Am I at risk of this problem recurring, Wt is the course, wt is the duration of entire course, Course fee, is the solution is permanent. Can it prevent with this course, wt is success rate, is that any side effects of it. Plz tell me more abt it. With full details.
Treatment should be safe & effective (Result should be 100%)
Plz guide me, I m very tense and mentally disturb.
Eagerly waiting for your reply.

i am 56 and in great health. i have occassionaly low grad headaches that are not getting worse. i also have a pattern of erectile dysfunction that seems to have started in the last 2 years with these headaches. i get dizzy when standing especially working in the heat. i also have low blood pressure like 108/65 at the dr office. i do take a light dose of Benicar. i am suspecting that all of my symptoms are from too low blood pressure. your thoughts?

I had my prostate roto rooted about 5 months ago and sexual function has decreased somewhat steadily and desire has too. I no longer ejaculate. The blue pill doesn't help. Could the procedure have caused this?
