Question: Hello,
I am having an erectile dysfunction problem. I used to mastrubate few years back and I have stoped it now. After reading thru couple of websites i understood that mastrubation is not a cause for ED. So I don't know what might be the other reasons. I do workout everyday. The only other causes that i am aware of might be anxiety or smoking. So i want to consult a doctor and get treated for the same.

Can you suggest me a clinic near by (my location is mentioned below) or probably a best doctor?

Brief Answer:
You need to get evaluated.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have been indulged in masturbation since many years and now facing problems related to sexual activities. (ED).

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1) Are you married?
2) Do you get morning erection?
3) Do you face problem of ED while attempting to have sexual intercourse with your female partner or while masturbating?
4) Have you ever tried Sildenafil (Viagra) to get erection ?

First of all there is myth in a mind of common man that excessive masturbation is the reason of all sexual problems But I would like to state that it has been discussed in scientific forums all over the world and proved scientifically that masturbation does not have any negative effect on any organ or system in the body.All the problems that you are facing now are mind related and due to anxiety.

Following measure will help you to boost up your confidence and getting good erection.and delay ejaculation.
1) Practice regular exercise for 45 minutes followed by meditation for 1/2 an hour in the morning.
2) Take high protein diet rich in vegetables and fruits and Vitamin A,C,D,E.and Zinc
3)Take anti oxidants like Almonds 5-6 everyday..
4) Avoid alcohol and smoking..

If problem persists even after 4 months consult qualified Urologist .(Dr XXXXXXX ) in Shankarmath Hospital in Banshankari.for detail evaluation and further treatment.

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,
I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.

Thank you Dr. XXXXXXX Answers for your questions below.

Yes had mastrubated for quite sometime, till I was 28.

1) Yes, I am Married.
2) Yes, I get morning errection sometimes.
3) Yes, I face ED while have sexual intercourse. My errection is good during foreplay, but as soon as I start intercourse, i lose it. May be in 2-3 mins. Sometimes it softens but its hard enough to continue within intercourse. So i continue with intercourse and we both reach climax.
4) No, i have not tried any pills or medicine till now. Should I try Sildenafil before visiting the doctor?

Thanks and Regards.

I had 2 twisted intestine surgeries-removed ascending colon and top part going across, secum and part of small intestine. Is it possible now that my body is not able to absorb vitamins, minerals and healthy foods I'm eating? I have had 3 neck surgeries where the bones involved are not healing and I wonder if this is a reason why. I take 3,ooo IU's of vitamin D and eat a diet rich in calcium.I rarely eat meat but I do eat some salmon and chicken, and take fiber daily. I'm 59 , weigh 125, 4 ft 5 1/2 in, am relatively healthy besides this-take daily meds for migraines, have IBS(constipation) scoliosis so I walk for exercise, and have fibromyalgia which is under control.

Hi sir, I don’t want to bother u with details, I just want o share my illness, I am 18 now and I am a victim of the guillian burr syndrome or GBS, when I was 12, as I turned 15 it strucked again, the doctors in my country aren’t specialized enough and I cant afford for an abroad treatment, in visits the neuro doctor gave me some pills which contains, vitamin A, B1, B6, B12, and Zinc. However I don’t feel well, some time, and a constant fear runs in my mind is being sick another time, which can really hamper my studies and my personal life. Though I look fine but I really don’t know what to do. I am 92 kgs of weight, and sometime I have muscle aches, and other kinds of muscular illness, I masturbate a lot which I think that refers to my back pain. Apart from that and all these sir what can I do to prevent this life threatening illness to show up again.
