Since you are diabetic and hypertensive, you need to take the prescribed medications properly to control them under appropriate limits. You can do the following to overcome the problem you are facing with an erection.

1. Practice 'pause and squeeze' technique regularly.
2. Practice pelvic floor strengthening exercises regularly.
3. Practice meditation regularly.
4. Consume foods like almonds, nuts, saffron, milk, dates, papaya and banana along with green leafy vegetables, which will improve circulation to penis and helps to sustain erection.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Wanted to check if these are safe and effective.

Hello. I am 18 and so is my boyfriend. Lately he s been having issues staying erect during sex and sometimes it won t get hard enough to even have sex. I ve been reading some articles online and they say that it can be because of stress about school or work or it can also be because of performance anxiety. I was just wondering if there is anything I can do to help him because I know how much it embarrasses him...
