I am in my mid 50s and overweight. However, I have been exercising for the last 4 months in an attempt to not only lose weight but reduce my cholesterol levels and reduce my blood pressure, both of which happened. I tend to have ED, but have noticed over the last 4-6 weeks, I get 3 or 4 erections during the night while sleeping. However, whenever I try to have sex with my wife, I just cannot become aroused at all. I don't know if it is a mind thing now or what.
I had this problem before and with exercise it all went away. That is why this is so baffling. I am able to have erections, just not when it counts.
What am I missing here? What else should I be looking at?View Thread
