Common test for the ED is: 1. Check your blood pressure 2.Check your penis and testicles 3. Order blood tests to check testosterone, luteinizing hormone (LH), prolactin, and thyroid hormone levels 4. urine test 5. Blood tests, such as a complete blood count (CBC), blood glucose, cholesterol, and triglyceride

I am able to do very well. In fact we did not have a single instance where we couple had to use a viagra too. I think you couple should be more lovable and not take sex as a mechanical activity. The excitement comes with love and thereby proper erection, hope it helps

Although Sex power starts decreasing in mens from the age of 35 but at this age not that much that it could stop him from doing sex. There is nothing like menopause in mens. Getting weak erection of penis could be because of many reasons. One of the main reasons at this age group could be anexity and depression which slowly ends up in decreasing testrosone levels in blood and other harmonal balances causing this. The other reasons could be High or Low Blood Pressure also which you never know you have and is very serious too. So better visit A Cardiologist to get Heart chekup first followed by an Endochronologist who might get your harmones levels like Serum Testostrone, T3, T4, TSH, FSH, LH and Prolactin checked and a Psychiatrist who might check you up for Anexity and or Depression related problems. Once exact reasons has been identified, do the teatment and he will be alright. Do visit all of them to reduce any chance of misdiagnosis or incomplete diagonosis and tell all the Doctors very clearly that this is the problem and you want to get checked up to for every possible cause. Generally it takes few months to get ok so be patience also while getting treated. Also do not feel shy when when going to a Doctor because he is 42 and you are 30. Afterall he is your husband and father of your childs.

Dear Mahamaya,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.

As the age adavances, the frequency of intercourse decreases.
Is he addicted to smoking or alcohol?
Since he is having desire, less likely to be of testosterone.
May be psychological or other causes which hs to be evaluated by a sexual medicine consultant

Wish you Good Sexual Health

I am a 35 year old married male. For the last eight months, I ve been having problems with erection. The erection is not strong enough. It started a couple of years ago, when I started having problems penetrating my wife. Since this feb, my erection became much less strong. Also, most of the times, it needs manual stimulation. Mental stimulation is no longer enough for me to get an erection. I ve had two strokes. First was nine years ago and second was three years ago. Could it be related to that? Are there any tests that need to be done? Thank you,

Dear colleaggues, I'm Ingrid Hilman, MD, 58 years. had my stenting on 17 Feb, 3 stents in LAD and RCA.

Since 2 weeks ago, I develop severe headaches, esp during the iningt or when I wake up in the morning and also palpitation (heart rate > 90). I feel weak during palpitation. I do not have hypertension (my BP is between 90-110 and 70-80). I do not have obesity, smoking habits, my lab is pretty good only LDL 100.

Is this because of the herbresser that I take 3 times a day?

Other drug that I take;

- Aspirin 1 x 100 mg

- Plavix 1 x 75 mg

- Lipitor 1 x 10 mg.

Appreciate your inputs on my above complaints. Thank you very much

I am a 25 yr old female that has recently lost 70 pounds and suffers from pcos. I am off all the bp medicines I was taking, and have been on a gluten free diet since 4/21/11 b/c I am allergic to wheat. I have been getting dizzy, lightheaded, and have a fast heart rate and low blood pressure when standing or sitting up. my heart rate is usually in the 60 -70 range when resting, and it's been in the high 90 - 100 range while resting. The dizziness started Sunday 6/19/11 all of a sudden, and I have kept track of my BP and symptoms since Sunday. I get this intense pressure in my head, and the get dizzy, and my heart will race when I start to feel yucky, I have trouble breathing, when my heart rate is up this high for no apparent reason. My BP will be 93/62 and HR 101 standing, or it can be 114/65 and HR 80 a few minutes later.. but if I go from lying down to sitting, it will be elevated, then it elevates when I stand, if I lay down everything is fine.. the pressure in my head goes away, the dizzyness goes away, and the HR goes back to normal... I have a shunt in place for hydrocephalus, my first shunt was placed at the age of two weeks, and first revision was done 4/5/2010. I want to know what is causing this fluctuation in BP and the dizziness, and fast HR...thanks
