Dear alfannaim, AS you have not mentioned your age for ED problems age is ne of the important criteria, ok if you had uti weather you have been checked for blood sugar? but relax if you are non diabetic and recently recovered from uti, why you are not giving rest to the penis for few days and don't be observer all the time . you develop erection to enjoy sex. but instead of enjoying sex you are observing your penis ... this will make your erections poor... have a holiday from sex for few days have plenty of water , fruit juices if non diabetic relax then start intimate things first and don't observe your erections.

Welcome to HCM.
Any infection in the body can reduce the sex drive and erection.
Pls give more time.
