My husband & I have been married for 42 years now. He was a very heavy smoker & it caused him to have reduced blood flow in his legs & lower half of his body. It used to cause him to not be able to keep an erection. This became so much of a problem to both of us. I love him dearly but we have not made love for 20 years now. He has now stopped smoking for 5 years. Do you think the blood flow might have improved. I don t want to face the disappointment for both of us again if we try & it happens again.

I'm an 18-year-old male, not sexually active, virgin. I have good hygiene, shower at least 3 times a week. But I suspect I have some sort of penis infection. There is no pain or itchiness, but only those microscopic bumps at the edge of my penis's head, which worry me. They're mainly on top, but I have a little on the bottom as well. I'm also uncircumcised. Can you please help me what to do?
