Brief Answer:
Could be due to low testosterone.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I understand your concerns. Since viagra (sildenafil) does not seem to be effective, it is likely that your testosterone levels have fallen. You need to get a medical evaluation whether administration of testosterone would be right for you and if that would take care of your problem.

It is unlikely to be due to a blockage.
