Hard to say. You need the statins so best to work with what you have, and talk to your urologist about the ED meds. They work especially great when things are okay bit could be better down there.View Thread
What you describe sounds perfectly normal. Yes, when you are trying to father children she should be on her back, Missionary style. Then she needs to stay on her back for an hour before she gets up to urinate. Different positions are best for different people. It may take some time to get comfortable or satisfied, but it is worth the effort. An average healthy couple takes about 4 to 9 months to get pregnant, so be patient.View Thread
That could be from a number of problems or concerns, including stress, fear of pregnancy, anxiety such as performance anxiety, fatigue, exhaustion, thinking too much about erections, and more. If you still have problems then you should talk to your doctor and even better, a urologist who is trained to deal with these issues.View Thread
Excess weight definitely alters the normal testosterone /estrogen balance needed for sex drive and sexual performance. You need to see a primary care doctor first to be sure there are no serious hormone abnormalities or problems such as a pituitary lesion.View Thread
A lot of topics in this short post. Varicoceles can reduce a man's fertility and some think over a lifetime can result in lower testosterone levels. Fixing the varicocele will often raise your sperm counts, and may or may not help with testosterone levels. A single testosterone level by itself doesn't mean much. Remember that your testosterone levels peak and trough two times a day so your levels are all over the place. a single result could be anywhere. You should also ask about getting an estradiol level and a free testosterone level, all to be drawn in the AM. You are very smart to stay away from Testosterone replacement as it will zero out your sperm count. Knowing that makes you smarter than most doctors. I suggest you go back to your urologist and talk some more, maybe get a few more tests.View Thread
Most men just want to know what can be done to bring back great erections. So often men ask whether they should take a pill , which one or maybe consider a herbal supplement. But as a urologist, my first and more important question is why do you have this problem? After all, ED is not a normal part of aging. Something is not working to cause this problem. Many times, ED is an early warning sign of some thing far more dangerous. It could be from damage to small arteries, the very same small arteries that deliver blood and oxygen to your heart. So for a lot of men, ED can be an early warning sign of serious and potentially life threatening coronary artery disease. Finding this out now make save you from a heart attack!
It might also be a first sign of diabetes, hormone imbalance, liver disease, kidney problems or even a small brain tumor.
So if you have ED, be sure to talk to your primary care doctor about getting a full work up. Ask about a stress echo to check your heart. Ask for blood tests. Sometimes we can find a problem that, when corrected, can restore your erections. Sometimes we can save your life.View Thread
