Question: Hi
My brother in law happen to be homosexual. As far as he could confess he has been through this since 20 years if not more. Nobody ever knew about this before he gets married to my sister. They had 2 children and they were are leading a stable sex life.
The guy started lately to sometimes loose erection with his wife fast and sometimes fail even to erect despite if using Cialis 20.. Yet sometimes things go smooth and successful.
last failure incident happen when he was trying to have sex with wife 4 hours after a strong teeth anesthesia.. ( could it be a reason for erection accidental dysfunction ?)
As far as I learned, he is a passive partner in his XXXXXXX life...and thus the question is whether or not such practice could lead to impotency?!

Brief Answer:
Being XXXXXXX doesn't cause impotence.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX and welcome to HCM.
As an Urologist,i can understand your concern.

Being a XXXXXXX should not affect his sexual health.
There are many bisexuals in society.

Kindly mention his age and if he's on any other medication.
Teeth anesthesia doesn't affect erections.

Cialis used in the proper manner should be effective,if medically fit.
So reply with the answers to my queries.

Wish him well.
