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,
